Ghazal: Runa Laila : ranjish hi sahee ,posted and translated by Ranu

 

Even though it is unpleasant, come to break my heart

Come  to leave me once  again

Our relationship is not the same as before, still  sometimes

do it for the sake of worldliness

How many people can I tell the cause of our separation

Come for the sake of the world even if you are angry with me

Show some respect for my love of you

You could also come to console me sometimes

Too long have I been deprived of the passionate expression of grief

Oh my beloved , come even if it’s only to make me shed tears!

DP Daily Prompt: No Time to Waste

pad2014-s.png (308×60)

Fill in the blank: “Life is too short to——.” Now, write a post telling us how you’ve come to that conclusion.

It is a good idea to remember, life is too short to waste thinking about the past. I’ve consumed more time dwelling about things that have happened that was unpleasant and not worth remembering, it only gave me heartache, I think I have learned from it.

I feel I should only interact with those who are positive and helpful . I do not see them every day but whenever I get the opportunity I meet with them and talk about things that are pleasant.

We can make things delightful for us if we want to, crying over spilled milk helps no one. The only thing that is satisfying for me is I always tried to help when there was a need, what happened afterwards is something I cannot mend. If I keep thinking about it, it only makes me bitter and want  my time back to do things right, it never happens, this is the time I tell myself: “life is too short, enjoy it while you can.”

DP Daily Prompts: One–Way Street

pad2014-s.png (308×60)

Congrats! You are the owner of a new machine.The catch ? It comes in two models,each traveling one way onlky: the past or the future.Which do you choose ,and why?

One way streets are annoying to me.The day we arrived here we ended up in a one way-street,the cab driver had to go around to reach us to our destination, it was the first thing in the morning for us,for him I’m not sure, judging by his delightful mood it might have been his first obstacle he faced as well.

Wait a minute this is not what you want me to write. The prompt is asking me which new model machine will I choose, I am the owner of one.

I’d love to own the past model, I know what happened I want to see the rerun, Future may not be as attractive as the past.

Why do I want to own the past model? It was the time of my life when I had a lot of fun. I’d like to go back to my days when we were inventing new things,learning how to read,write and show my parents how well I was doing. My parents loved to see me enjoying my school , and friends I made.

My older brother wanted took me to a restaurant, he ordered juice for me, I didn’t like it,I took two sips and I told him I couldn’t drink it anymore. He took me to the restaurant again,this time he ordered milkshake for me I sipped it once then in minutes I drank all of it. My brother said: now I know what you like, next time I’ll order the same thing for you.

These are memories that I cherish and they were pleasant, this is why I’d like a machine that would take me to my past.

The future model would be uncertain and perhaps full of unpleasant things!
