Daily Prompt: Dear Mom

pad2015-s1.png (308×60)

Write a letter to your mom.Tell her something you’ve always wanted to say, but haven’t been able to.

Dear Mom,

When I was a little girl, I loved listening to songs, I wanted you to hire a teacher for me, so I could learn to sing. You refused, you thought I would give up my studies and will be illiterate.

You hired a teacher for Yasmin and bought her a harmonium as well. I wish you’d give me the same opportunity as you gave her. I know it’s too late now and you might say,”Let bygone’s be bygone’s “, sometimes I feel sad thinking I could not learn something I loved because you did not trust me.

I know you had lots to worry about after dad passed away, you had to take care of everything by yourself. I’m sorry to bring this subject again, it only gives heartbreak to both of us.

I will try not to bring this subject anymore, I do love you for everything you’ve done for us.

All the best to you mom.

Regards,

Your daughter,

Ranu  🙂

Five sentence fiction: Rain

Lillie McFerrin Writes

The sky was overcast that morning, the three Harvey brothers decided to go fishing in a nearby lake , their mom told them to come home within the hour whether they caught fish or not.

Austin was more adventurous than his brothers Mark and Edward, he proposed to go further, he had heard from his friend there was a lake teeming with fish, he said, “Mom would be happy to see all the fish we’ll carry home.”

Mark and Edward were excited, so much fish in that lake, mom sure would be happy, all three were singing loudly, “Oh so much fish we’ll catch and eat them night and day, mama would be proud of us.”

They were barely a half a kilometre away when they heard a booming sound,not knowing what it was they moved on, another few feet onward, they saw the sky brightened up this time there was a flash of lightning followed by a roar of thunder, Austin kept going further, Edward and Mark were scared they froze and were unable to walk any further, within minutes it seemed nature was in fury, there were buckets of water falling from the sky, they were getting wet and couldn’t decide which way to go, Mark the brainy one ran towards home the brothers followed , they reached home all drenched, mom was not impressed to see them so wet, the boys learned their lesson they promised not to go fishing when the sky is overcast!

“ALL ABOUT ME”

O listen up humanity.

Ranu is my name.

Singing is my game.

Talat,Rafi,Tagore and Celine,

These are my favorite singers.

Talat is from India and

Rafi from Punjab.

Tagore is a Bengali

And Celine speaks French.

Now that I’ve written about

my favorites,

Here is a short verse about me.

I am a Bengali,

I’ll say : aami tomaakey bhalobashi.(I love you)!

Rafi and Talat speak Urdu,

I learned this language too,

Celine speaks French,

I studied it in school.

I learned English from my teachers,

They were  strict indeed.

I had to speak English

Or  they’d make us

pay a fine.

This was a crime said the parents,

you’ll be grounded for

a week!

Naseem,Farida,and Firoza,

Beware! you  speak

English,’til your jaws ache.

Went to college, there was no excuse

English was the medium of instruction,

No difference in the university,

Mon dieu,mon dieu ,what

can I do but speak it,

my friend this is all

about me!

The tune of ‘I had a little nut tree nothing would it bear’, may be quite interesting for my lyrics about me!

DP Daily Prompt: Singin’ In The Rain Post By Ranu

Rain days

Rain days (Photo credit: @Doug88888)

Singin’ In The Rain, and a perfect afternoon. I am not sure if there was a perfect afternoon,where I live.The month of June is anything but pleasant.It has been raining almost every day.It’s cold,so much so,I sometimes forget if it is summer or fall. That is beside the point,inside it is toasty warm. I have to turn up the heat instead of the air conditioner.This is the situation here.

I will go back when I was in Comilla.We had a lot of pleasant rainy afternoons. I remember once, my younger siblings and I decided to go out to watch a movie.Mom was at home,busy with housework,four of us quietly went out of the house.We took a rickshaw,and were on our way to the movie hall.I don’t remember what we watched,Mom had no idea where we went. On our way back the street leading to our house was uneven,there were puddles everywhere,the rickshaw driver lost his balance.Four of us fell out on the street and were completely drenched. We came into the house,Mom saw us,she thought we were playing in the rain.We pretended that’s how we were wet. We had fun,loads of fun.We couldn’t tell Mom what we were up to.

We didn’t sing in the rain,we certainly were wet in the rain.
