365 days Writing Prompts: Earworm

What song is stuck in your head( or on permanent rotation in your CD or MP3 player) these days?Why does it speak to you?

When I read and hear about the turmoil in the world, I listen to John Lennon’s song “Imagine.” It gives me hope that everything that disturbs peace,and harmony in this world will come to an end  some day ,and we will live with each other in peace.

Here is the song:

Do parties and crowds fill you with energy, or send you scurrying for peace and quiet?

I do not mind going to parties if there are some people I know, it gives me an incentive to hang out with them. I am not too fond of wild parties where guests completely lose their sense,I avoid those.

I’ve been to some parties where the guests are interested in what every one is wearing, to me it feels like I’m attending a fashion show I don’t much care about them.

I was invited to attend a wedding in Baltimore, the groom was the son of my husband’s good friend, I was happy to accept the invitation.

There were a lot of guests, it was not noisy, the bride was very sweet, she made sure her guests were having a good time, her father had passed away, she and her mother and her cousins organized everything. The whole ceremony was a joy to watch.

Khalil Gibran once said that people will never understand one another unless language is reduced to seven words. What would your seven words be?

My seven words are: Love; Trust; Honesty; Friendship; Sharing; Peace; Unity.

Love erases misunderstanding.

Trust is an important word, if you trust people there will be no arguments.

Honesty is always the best policy.

If we are friendly we’ll have no enemies.

Sharing: whatever one has it’s good to share it reduces poverty.

Peace: What can be achieved by peace cannot be achieved by war.

Unity: Lack of unity is the cause of all the dissension in the world.

Muhammad Rafi song posted and translated by Ranu

This is a favorite song of mine sung by Bollywood playback singer Muhammad Rafi.

Whenever my heart is sad

who knows who is near me

When my lips silently speak

my breathing is swift

when my eyes feel the sounds

my sighs burn my breathing

I imagine pictures of you

passing me by

When I   look in the mirror

it seems to ask me an innocent question

I did not promise anything

but why do I look out for you

when I am at peace without any reason

Why is my heart restless?
