There was a man who had a shocking dream

All his valuables were dumped in a stream.

Was shining his camera with shoe cream!

DP Daily Prompt: Just a Dream

pad2015-s1.png (308√ó60)

You’re having a nightmare, and have to choose between three doors. Pick one, and tell us what you find on the other side.

Last night was a bad one for me, at first I couldn’t sleep, as soon as I dozed off, I had a very scary dream, I was walking in our neighborhood, suddenly I saw a number of people in black attire chasing me, I was so afraid I began to run, I took a turn on Allendale road, I found it blocked, there were three stop signs, one of the men guarding the sign said, ‘if you want to escape choose one of these signs, as soon as you reach closer there is a door behind which will open up for you to get through.”

Fear gripped me, was this a trap I thought, what will I do, not knowing how to escape I said a prayer closed my eyes and started walking. Someone stopped me I heard him saying, “This way please.”

I saw the door on my ¬†right open, on the other side of the door I found my teacher Sr. Rose Bernard, she smiled and said: “Chaman dear welcome we were waiting for you to join us to celebrate Evie’s birthday.”

” But I forgot to bring a gift I said.”

I woke up and found myself in bed talking gibberish!

DP Daily Prompt: Golden Key

pad2014-s.png (308√ó60)

 

You’ve been given a key that can open one building, room,locker, or box to which you don’t¬†normally have access. How do you use it, and why?

‘Golden Key’ Wow! There are quite a few to choose from, ¬†building sounds more fascinating than room,locker,or box.

I think I’ll use my key to open the building, it has so many possibilities, there might be some Ogre hiding there or a sleeping princess or a room full of gold and precious jewels.

Human mind is strange of all the things before me why did I choose a building, perhaps the word building means larger than the other alternatives.

I took my key and went straight to the building, when I opened there was a hush,I took two small steps and prayed, “Please God, I know I’ve made a mistake let me get out of here safely.”

“You want to get out safely?” Someone hollered.

“Please do not hurt me I cried, I do not want anything I want to go back to my house.”

“What if I tell you there is no way out of this building once you are in,” the invisible man shouted.

Fear made me sweat, I cried, “Take my key, please let me go, I promise I’ll never come here again.”

Suddenly I found someone’s arms around me, it was my daughter trying to wake me up, Mom she said, “you had a nightmare wake up!”

“Where is the key I asked?”

“What! There is no key I told you, you had a nightmare!

365 days Writing Prompt: Silver linings

Write about something you consider “Ugly” — war,violence, failure, hatred– ¬†but try to find a beauty , or a sense of hope, in your thoughts.

War,violence,failure,hatred, all of these things cause a lot of dissension in us humans. We can if we sincerely want prevent it from happening.

War in my mind causes the most damage,it kills innocent people,destroys the sanctity of life, injures a lot of people beyond repair, if we humans can set aside our differences by peaceful means, this world would be a much better place to live. War is not the answer to settle our differences think about some countries destroyed because of war,their women and children maimed for life, what was their crime other than they happen to be the citizens of a war torn country.

Some countries have more weapons than they can use, why may I ask? Were we created to be destructive, what can we gain out of this misery, do we feel proud of ourselves when we watch children crippled for life and worse yet crippled and orphaned, just to show we are powerful, will there be a phase in our life when we are no longer capable of using these killer weapons, will it make us realize after all that destruction and horror, when we are left to agonize and wonder how could we participate in this horrible crime? 

I hope a day will come when war will be a thing of the past, we’d realize we are no different from the rest of humans. The color of our skin is light or dark depends on where we live, the same applies to languages, way of life , food and other things.

We are same otherwise we laugh when we are happy, passing of our near and dear ones makes us cry, we have our likes and dislikes, we eat what pleases our taste buds, we listen to our favorite songs and watch our favorite movies, we read, write, though the language is different our expressions are not that different.

Is it not possible to build a world where we love each other ?

DP Daily Prompt: Climate Control

pad2014-s.png (308√ó60)

 

The idea that the weather and the people’s moods is connected is quite old.Do you agree? If yes, how does the weather affect your mood?

I agree the weather is connected with people’s moods. The past winter is proof of that, I remember when the snow started in December I thought, good it will end in February and we’d have a gorgeous spring and summer.

My calculation was wrong, the snow continued to fall beyond February,the days were too cold, the thought of snow and clearing it was a nightmare, then the town plow would show up like a giant monster blocking our driveway which we just finished clearing. When this happens everyday, it is impossible to be in a  good mood. 

I know weather is responsible for our moods,good or bad!

Writing Prompt: Nightmares

I dreamed something which to me did not feel like a nightmare. It was one in which I saw my brother who had passed away, It seemed he came in my dream to set things straight.

I revealed my dream to my siblings concerned, who brushed it off as something I made up. To believe me would go against their interest. They decided to ignore it.

DP Daily Prompt: Ground Hog Day post by Ranu

Although it’s not relevant now.There was a time when I would choose to stay stuck in holidays. Holiday has such a musical sound to it,how could I want to get out of it. I do know good things are always shorter than bad. Take for example me,I was in a place where screaming and disobedient kids made my days miserable.I would dream of going home and relax, I wasn’t able to, I’d take stacks and stacks of books home to correct,meals to cook,children to look after,make sure I prepared myself for the next day. I clearly was stuck in a loop.

There also was the fear,the baby sitter’s call right before I left,”Mrs. Asgar, I’m sick I won’t come today”. I’d have to deal with it the best way I knew how. Then there was one of the kid’s sick. How do I take care of this emergency?

At least when it is a holiday,I can relax,despite the house work.

No it is never possible to get “Life” right. Whichever way I tried things were never smooth. As humans we are responsible for so many things,it’s never easy. Life is not easy.I tried in my opinion to do so much for my relatives,it came back not as a reward but a nightmare.Life is not fair,this is my view of life.

Question by R. Tagore___ translated by Ranu

The title of this poem is ‘Question’

O God,you sent messengers so many times

in this cruel world___

they said,’forgive all, ¬†‘said give love___

remove all bad thoughts from your heart’.

they are  respected, they are remembered, still outside

in these bad times their efforts failed.

I saw secret jealousy in the insincere darkness

how it hit the helpless people.

I saw ____no justice against the criminals

the verdict went against the innocent and made them cry quietly.

I saw young boys running to save their lives

what a painful death they suffered.

My voice is silent today, my flute has lost its melody.

In this dark fortnight who has

destroyed my world that seems like a nightmare.

This is why I ask you with tearful eyes____

P question

those who have poisoned your air, turned off your lights,

did you forgive them,  did you love them?
