For Sensational haiku wednesday held at http://youknowthablog.com, the theme this week is “habits”
Poetry potluck @ http://jinglepoetry.blogspot.com
aim and life
aim in life, goal and achievements
the mantra chanted to every ear
till the time of disillusionments
catch up and grasp their ear.
it sounds so cute set your aim, goal
as if its as easy as an apple
hanging in your very own apple tree
standing fruit laden in your orchard.
life is not a garden of fruit and flowers
where you can pick up your choice
with the ease of a hungry small child
life is not a garden of Eden to satisfy you.
Life is an ocean, our lives are but boats
it takes more than desire and grit to reach shore
we all start rowing with our own intentions
some dreams, some hopes and aspirations.
Then the ocean plays its own games
without any warning or decency
and our boat goes crazy dancing with us aboard
so…. we should just row with eagerness to reach.
And if the naughty ocean rips apart our boat
pulls us to its waves, tossing and turning
we should try to swim as far as we can
may be we can get a lift, or swim to the shore.
Monday morning writing prompt @ http://liv2write2day.wordpress.com, the theme is “super bowl”
super bowl, a football
that uses hand and feet
hmph! that does it!
I don’t want to analyze.
Was never the one glued to TV
when our cricketers paraded
in and out of the green pitch
I was the one sitting out in sun.
I was always the nightmare
to my cricket crazy folks
one who could barely remember
the names of players, forget rules.
wanted to take a bite in hand-foot ball
could not get much insight
just flew above my head
guess I am just not sport addicted type.
