I’m planning to come up with a new series of writing. I pick any random picture and write something about it. Since my poems or articles are usually very long, I’m challenging myself to write short.. in Less than 10 sentences.
Feel free to contribute, try this challenge for yourself; have fun and share with me too.
All you gave to do is add ‘howisee’ in your tag for your posts and I will find you.
I’m not sure how long I do this… But I wanna start anyway. . And I’m inviting all of you to join me. .. 🙂
Let’s have some fun learning !!
It’s 9.09 PM on a Tuesday. It was a long day. Although I didn’t do much at work, it was tiring. Last couple of days have been a little stressful I guess I still haven’t recovered from that.
I had the office cab that starts at 10 PM, but I took a private cab an hour early. Despite my Boss asking me to leave early I was a bit stubborn to sit back and work- mostly coz of the guilt that I haven’t really worked anything today – not that it helped #rollingeyes.
I ended up reading a single line more than 3 times! #duh.
The cab I had booked arrived in 7min. Letting my hair open, leaning back in the Etios Liva with a descent leg space (kinda very imp, specially when you are tired and want to stretch ur legs) watching those florescent street lamps coloring the night a warm sepia, the usual traffic not bothering me, I didn’t want the journey to end. I just wanted the driver to keep driving wherever the road takes.
As the cab stopped at a traffic signal, my eyes fell on a tree to my right. It had unusual maroon flowers with yellow in the middle. Looked very beautiful (damn my phone camera! )It looked like velvet and I thought, I cross that Signal twice everyday but I never had seen that. The tree was actually in the park on the road side. A huge branch was perched on the road which had its own branches, it’s as big as a tree itself. I then realised I had never seen the fence either. It’s a silly thing but it made me think.
Then I started to ponder, how much of the natural obvious things do we miss in life coz of our so called very-busy-routine. Things, emotions, feelings, happiness, thoughts, inside, outside and within. How much am I missing? How many lives have I touched today just by existing?
Our brains usually are so preoccupied, that sometimes maybe most of the times we miss the obvious. Always thinking, running, always planning, trying to be in control, in pursuit of something.
It’s a race against time!
I’m not complaining. I know it’s ‘only one life’ funda. At the same time I think it’s important to slow down a bit once in a while coz it is ‘Only One Life’! !
Can we pretend to be strangers
Start the start from the beginning
Let’s write a new book
Filling Every page with dreams and desires
You once promised me
You’ll be there for me!
Life is a vicious circle
World is most cynical
I wanted you beside me
To fight the demons
You opted out
Chucking everything I ever gave you!
I begged your pardon
You didn’t bother to turn
wallowing in remorse
I’m hurt and torn
Now, Open your eyes
and watch me burn!
I’m lost in the world
Don’t bother finding
My dreams are shattered
Don’t bother picking
Just keep your eyes open
And watch me burn!
I have given up hopes
Burning my dreams with me
But, I will not grave them
For I will soon be back
Shine from my own ashes
Start a new start
With my own self and
The memories you gave me
Just without you!
Why always think the other side is greener
Let’s water our side, make it more warmer
If you believe others do better
Give me a chance , you will repent never
I am innocent unless proven guilty!
Your glass window is masked with pouring rain
don’t wait for the rain to stop in vain
Reach out, wipe the glass and wait
For the vision becomes clear as crystal
You will see the potential
I am guilty unless proven innocent!
For, the foundation of every relationship is TRUST!
For, the world is living together in BELIEF!
All that is making you promise tomorrow is HOPE!
Lets create new path , enlighten it
With the wax of trust, thread of belief
Light it with the fire of Hope!
We can glow bright
We can grow right
Hold hands tight, for every link is a must
let them clink, see the magic in a blink!
Hear the shouting voice “yes, we can!”
Let the Oceans only divide lands, not Unity
There’s one goal, one destination,one dream
Live a better today, create a better tomorrow
Let us not fight for a lion share
Instead, Grow the pie enough to share
Enough to spare !
Let’s Unite again, be the best again!
