She struck the ball with authority

No one challenged her ability

Her massive  power

Had made  them cower

To win against her was futility!

 

 

 

DP Daily Prompts: Advantage of Foresight

pad2014-s.png (308×60)

You’ve been granted the power to predict the future! The catch—each time you use your power, it costs you one day( as in you’ll live one day less).How would you use this power, if at all?

The catch takes away the fun of predicting the future. The fun of predicting is taken away by saying, I’ll lose a day of my life every time I use the power.

For the sake of argument I’m writing what if I have only thirty days to live and because I have the power to predict the future, there’ll be friends and family interested to know, given the fact each prediction costs me a day’s life, I’d lose my life in a very short time.

I am sorry but I will not use my power it’s too risky.

365 days Writing Prompt: You’ve got the power

You have the power to enact a single law. What would it be?

If I had the power, I’d make sure no one in the land is hungry. We all need food for sustenance,without it we are weak, we think of unimaginable things of how to get  food to satisfy our hunger, there have been stories of people eating human flesh to survive.

Hunger makes people steal,kill, it changes one’s personality, this is one thing that should be taken care of before we think of anything else.

DP Daily Prompt: If I Ruled the World

pad2014-s.png (308×60)

You’ve been given the super power to change one law of nature. How do you use it?

I am given the super power to change one law of nature, how will I use it. Not everyday we get this kind of power. So I do have to invest sometime to see what’s the best way of using it. As I was thinking I tripped up on Hobbe’s natural laws, he was a man full of ideas,I thought it would be a good idea to borrow two of his law of nature and see which one suits me better.

I have super power I must use it wisely or the media bums will turn blue criticizing me, I don’t think they’ll dare,seeing that I am in possession of this unbelievable super power. I hear someone whispering, “Stop the rant and get on with business.” I have dual personality you know and my second personality is the whisperer. 

I lost my train of thought what was I saying, “you were talking about Hobbe’s laws of nature.” This prompt was from my second one.

Okay first one on my list is: Everyman ought to endeavour peace,as far as he has hope of obtaining it, and when he cannot obtain it, that he may seek and use all helps and advantages of war.

The second one from Hobbe’s list is : No man by deed or word, countenance or gesture declare hatred or contempt of another. The breach of which law is commonly called contumely.

So I’m fine with the law called “CONTUMELY”. Enforcing this law I feel is easier than the first one on my list. I’ll make a country wide proclamation,from this day forward hatred from one another is prohibited by law. Anyone found guilty will be deprived of consuming food for a week, however they are allowed to drink water. I wouldn’t want them to die of thirst.

Before the law is established the citizens will be provided with an intensive workshop to learn how to contain their anger, the children will  be trained by their parents or guardians.

After the first week attempts will be made to find out if the law is working. If the feedback is positive the citizens will be invited  to all the town squares of the country, where they’ll be given treats for their positive behavior.

DP Daily Prompt: Singing the Blues

pad2014-s.png (308×60)

We all feel down from time to time. How do you combat the blues? What’s one tip you can share with others that always helps to lift your spirits?

Lately I’m feeling blue about the weather, which continues to bother me. Our winter started I’d say from late November. Almost every day it snows, if there is one good day there’ll be several stormy days. I fear about losing power,which means everything will be at a standstill, to me no power means, no internet,no warm food, no bath, no heat nothing. I picture myself counting the hours and wondering when power will be restored.

Right now we are having a windstorm why Nature is so angry I cannot tell. Yes we are responsible, we have too many vehicles on the road polluting our skies,earth and what have you.

We have garbage thrown everywhere polluting the town or city we live in. We fail to realize we are the reason our weather has changed. One positive thing that came out of this is we are learning to recycle, which could have started a while ago,but it’s a good beginning.

When I am sad I listen to my favorite songs, I read my favorite book,I talk to my kittens, who probably wonder , “What’s wrong with her, she is too nice today?” Then there is the piano I play for a few seconds and stop because the last time I played was a long time ago,I seem to have forgotten a lot of it. My best way of lifting my spirits is to get my cook books and read the delicious recipes in there, I start my preparation, soon enough I forget what bothered me in the first place.

My one tip for someone who is having a bad day,would be to advise them to open a dessert cook book and read the recipes,pretend they are going to create that wonderful cheesecake they think about from time to time and imagine eating a slice of that wonderful creation and say to themselves, “Who says I am not a good cook, look what I have created,it’s delicious!”

DP Daily Prompt: Happy Happy Joy Joy

After a winter blizzard, loss of power, cold house,    craving for warmth my definition of happiness has changed.

I had the most awful experience yesterday January 4th 2014.  We had a blizzard, the wind was blowing at  110 K.m/h an hour, heavy snow and to make matters worse we lost our power.

Lucky for me I had my breakfast before the power was turned off by the city. It lasted for over seven hours. The house was cold and there was danger of pipes freezing. I remember sitting in my living  room trying to read. My hands were frozen in the house. I put on my gloves,it was difficult to turn the pages.

Today the power was off again for an hour and a half.  They’re calling it a rolling blackout.  Fortunately the sun is shining,the wind has stopped blowing and there is no snow falling. This to me is Happiness. I feel like singing out loud, Happy Happy Joy Joy. We are warm today.

DP Daily Prompt: You’ve got the power Post by Ranu

Imperialism

Imperialism (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

I hope this power enables me to bring some law and order in the world. I would put an end to imperialism. The smaller and weak nations will  not be bullied by the imperialists.

Next I’ll make sure,there are no one homeless. No one hungry and deficient in vigour; sickly,feeble.

War will be unknown,people will not be afraid of getting killed in their sleep. All the weapons of mass destruction will be eliminated from the face of the earth.

Proper care will be taken of our environment. There will be no such thing as “Smog”.

Freedom will prevail.
