First Line Friday: July 19th, 2019

  They congregated up in the hills, Far away from judging eyes. Here they were free to worship, To practice their faith as they chose. Most people misunderstood them, Shunned, feared, segregated and isolated them. To reject what one does not know or understand Is not how a civilized society should behave.

“Uneasy lies the head that wears the crown!”

Top dog , top cat , top man; Sounds fancy doesn’t it ? But life isn’t easy at the top, No one realises the pressures. People just see the importance  That goes with authority.

The family events missed, The relationships on hold. “Uneasy lies the head That … Continue reading “Uneasy lies the head that wears the crown!”

Wednesday Writing/Journal Prompts- Out The Window

Out of the window, I can see the rain. As it falls to the ground In an endless downpour. Turning the street Into a giant puddle. Bathing the dusty trees, Making leaves glossy again.

Isn’t life exciting?

Baby sits in her playpen Watching her choo choo train. She gets bored after a while And picks up a rattle. She inspects it closely Then shakes it hard, Finally she chews on it Before putting it down. This is how she checks out Everything around her; Observing, interpreting, Cataloguing and archiving. This is how she learns. But she is tired now. It’s time for her … Continue reading Isn’t life exciting?
