Daily Prompt: Silent

In response to prompt : Silent

I watched silently my father dying,

We stood around quietly thinking.

How will we survive this loss?

After losing our important boss.

We stood stunned, dumb and  breathless,

Thinking what happened to us is senseless!

365 Writing Prompts: INTJ

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.

song by Muhammad Rafi posted and translated by Ranu

Oh God the protector of humans

listen to my painful complaint.

You have created the world in two colors

one of hope and the other hopeless,

With the boat you created storm

With union, separation

I’ve seen your compensation

I’ve lost my love

shed your tears now

Oh protector of humans.

Fire is turned to rainy season,

flowers are turned into ember

The pleasant night seems like a serpent

the stars are like stones

all my support is gone

how will I spend my life

O life giver ?

Take away my life

Oh God the protector.

The crazy sun is looking for the moon,

Morning is looking for afternoon

I’m also looking for my love

who couldn’t be mine!

Oh God praise be to you

although I’m unlucky

I have hope,

I have blister on my feet

Oh protector of humans

The palace is sad

the lanes are desolate

and the walls are quiet

my heart and my world has perished

spring is displeased with me

How will I live my life?

The fallen temples are rebuilt

Who will take care of my heart

Oh protector of humans?

DP Daily Prompt: She Drives Me Crazy

pad2014-s.png (308×60)

It makes me crazy when people wear their shoes in my house.What habit/act drives you crazy? How do you prevent it from happening?

This prompt is very interesting. I’m not worried or anxious if people wear shoes in my house as long as they’re not dirty.

One habit I am not fond of is when they come to see me but spend the whole time gossiping about others. I am not capable of preventing it ,I fear they’d call me rude, I stay quiet and let them talk.

I do wonder at the same time,what they say about me.

Once this same person came for a visit, my younger brother came to see me around that time. The first thing she said was, “You know so and so she’s married again isn’t she, that didn’t go over well, my brother was furious.

He replied, “so what if she’s married again,I’m not here to talk about her.”

That sealed her mouth for good.

Writing Prompt: Through the Window https://sabethville.wordpress.com/2014/01/29/365-days-jan 29th -through the window/

I went to the nearest window. These are the things I saw. Two houses, one is white with grey roof,the other one is also white with black roof.

I can see garbage on the end of their driveway, recycle and waste. Those to be recycled are in blue bags, others are in black plastic bags.

Oh right across my house there is a grey Subaru parked in their driveway.

There is some snow on the lawns.

When I was almost finished counting sixty seconds, the green garbage truck stopped in front of my neighbor’s driveway to pick up the garbage.

This is all I saw. My street is relatively quiet in the morning. Everyone already left for work or school.

DP Daily Prompt: We Can Be Taught Post by Ranu

Public Library

Public Library (Photo credit: MTSOfan)

Yes we can be taught a few things from others. I was always very shy in school.I did not make friends easily. I very seldom took the initiative of starting a conversation.This gave a wrong information to my classmates. They all thought I was very proud.

Once my classmate wanted to go to the public library with me. I was surprised. She never went to any library. I agreed. We went to the library.When we sat down with our books,she said, ‘ Chaman I want to tell you something’,I gave her a puzzled look. She continued,’Because you do not talk to anyone we all think you are a very conceited person,I even said on one occasion who does she think she is?’

I was shocked to hear this. I was thinking in my mind, ‘Why will they judge me like that?’ It is perhaps human nature to make their own conclusion without knowing a person.Then in London another classmate of mine remarked, ‘Sabeth ,you will never have enemies’,I asked him why? He said, ‘You hardly talk’. I replied, ‘You’ll be surprised’. I had to explain my experience in the university.

Some think I am quiet because I am proud. Others think I will never have enemies,I hardly speak. So from this it taught me two things,not everyone thinks I am vain. It also says people make up their mind without knowing someone.

Words

Words (Photo credit: sirwiseowl)

Speak the words, speak.

o eternal past, on an  infinite night why are you sitting and staring?

Speak the words, speak

For many generations your words are pouring into the ocean,

so many lives  so many streams are mixed with your water.

After coming  there, it has stopped flowing,

the murmuring stream is quiet__

the rolling swell of water is very quiet, where are you taking it?

O eternal past, you are my heart  speak.  o do speak the words.

Speak the words,speak.

O stunned past, o the hidden past,you are not unconscious___

why don’t you speak?

I have heard your motion in the beat of my heart,

how many days  collection are you leaving in my heart.

o past, you move to different parts of the world

you keep doing your work secretly,

amid the noisy restless and impertinent people you stay calm.

O past you  secretly speak from your heart, speak.

O past speak, speak the words.

You have never lost any words,you  remember all of them____

speak past ,o speak the words.

You have in every page of life, in invisible letters

written the story of the grandfathers,

Those whom everyone has forgotten

You did not forget anything about them,

I am surprised how quietly you convey these astounding stories.

You give it language, o ascetic of the past, speak the words,speak.
