For Sadje’s What do you see # 47- 14 September’20

Those are her hidden treasure, which she keeps away from the eyes of everybody, her painting paraphernalia, those colors, those brushes, the canvas, used to give her happiness, her own little world of imagination. How she wanted to become a famous painter one day but never got the opportunity. Memories run down her mind when Avika is showing this to her friend, Mansi.

Those are so beautiful, Avika but why all your paintings are incomplete, complete them, you are such a wonderful artist , Mansi asked her.

I don’t want them to complete, never ever, dont want to end my ray of hope to live, that till these painting is there, I will keep on fighting this cancer, Avika said staring at her painting and with glimpses of her life in it.

But what if it gets completed?

Footprints of spirit

For Sadje’s What do you see # 46 – 7 September 2020
Walking all alone
In the desert of life
Leaving the footprints
Omnipresent in this universe
Journey of origins
Various births you take
Unique in all ways  
Carrying the burdens
From one to another
Pulled apart and aloof
As if the outside this mortal world
Become formless, indefinite
The only energy you feel
Roaming with the shadows
Tramping with gloom
In search of the absolute truth
In search of the final destination
Away from the hallucinations of oasis 
Away from the illusions of delusions

It rises up…..

FOR SADJE’S What do you see # 45 – 31 August 2020
When gravity playing tricks 
Trying to pull it down
It rises up, It rises up high
In the sky, wishing to touch the stars
Driven with the fire within
Against all the odds
Against all the qualms
Spread the wings and fly away
Exploring higher height
Looking at the pinnacle
It rises up, it rises up high
It rises up from the burdens
It rises up from the skepticism
It rises up from the dust
Unstoppable and never look back
Follow its path, not afraid
Between the realms of life
It rises up, it rises up high
Spreading happiness and delight

Free soul

For Sadje’s What do you see # 44- 24 August 2020

Dancing with the tides 
Rhythm of water
Sets her soul free
Dance rain embellished her
Scattered by breeze
Rise wild and open
No cage can hold
Her spirit pure and sweet
No love no anger
She is flexible and fluid
With a soft heart inside.

Survival

Image credit- Lewis Roberts- Unsplash
Family of three monkeys 
Left the forest
Come to the city
Exploring the new life
Settled in a vacant house
In humans locality
Sometimes their relatives
Also visits them
The little one is very naughty
With the other two seems silent
May be afraid or worrying
Roaming here there the whole day
Return and sleep there in the night
Searching food and habitat maybe
Most of the times
Destroying little plants
on the terraced gardens
Who are still in the budding stages
Sometimes little flowers
Sometimes brinjals and tomatoes
Or be it guavas or gouts
Drinking water from water tanks
In amazement and awe
Observing human beings
Sitting on top of towers
Jumping from one place to another
In search of trees maybe
Occasionally coming inside houses
If balcony doors left opened by chance
Once they damaged the clothes
Hanged for drying outside
Maybe they are curious
Or thinking it as food
People often complain
And this thought
Always come to my mind
Don't they feel bad
When humans cut down
Their homes
And leave them helpless
So, why are you now complaining
They also want to survive
You destroyed their home
They are here now
Please don't cut down forests
All have to suffer
Because of a few.

Tea

Image credit; 五玄土 ORIENTO – Unsplash
Brewing aroma of tea leaves 
boiling in water, replenishing the soul
A little bit of sugar and milk
Mixing it with ginger, Pinch of cardamom
Some kind of magic, Comfort in taste
All stress fades away

Happy or sad
Breakfast, lunch or dinner
Or any other time of day
Tea is always a important part
Drank a cup of tea, Second then third

This would be last, Will not drink more now
Determined and firmly I said
But the fourth hit on the door
Okie, this would be last
Maybe after one more cup
Drank the fifth one fast
This would be last again I said
Turned out making the sixth one
Mom exclaimed
How much tea did you gonna drink?
And always awake at night
Like an owl, tea addict you become
Do you want a cup of tea?
Okie, make one for me too
More I go away, More close it appears

This is my small attempt, I feel it can be written way better 😅😅tried to write something funny.

Conversation……

A family of four little rats lived in the attics of the big mansion, consisting of father, mother and their two children, Harry and Sally. Both are very mischievous and naughty due to which their parents have to suffer now and then, as there is the fear of being caught by the owners of the mansion and if they found out that they live in the attics, they would probably be thrown out or killed or may have to be separated, so they always warn their children to be careful. But, Harry and sally due to their habit and curious nature keep on roaming in the house.

One such day, as they were roaming around, and searching for something to eat, suddenly, Marie, who was the owner of the house, come to the kitchen, and in hurry, they hide in the basket. They saw Marie and her family have brought a lot of food items, more than usual, and still bringing more and more. It had wheat, Rice, coffee, vegetables, fruits, pulses, other food grains, etc and the list goes on, every possible commodity they would think of and there was a lot of cheese, too, their favorite. Harry and Sally both are surprised and happy to see, so much, food, especially, cheese and thinking, when they all would go out of the kitchen and but also wondering, why they have brought so many things.

You all go out of the kitchen, let me sanitize each thing and store them properly, don’t know when this lockdown will be over, but we have enough for 2-3 months I guess, Marie said to her children and also, don’t forget to take a proper bath, ok, now hurry. She started, radio while doing work to listen to the news, There is a complete lockdown for 1 month from 12 am today but all the necessary commodities will be available, announced the RJ. We urge people not to panic and don’t hoard the essential items much, more then, necessary, everything will be available, the government has said, as due to hoarding, many people in need are not getting essentials. Please cooperate. Both harry and sally who was still inside that basket were also listening but to their horror, Marie had seen, Harry when he was peeking out of it and about to hit them, when both of them, run fast and go inside the small hole.

Running and hiding, they reached attics and told everything they saw and heard and also what happened with them to their parents, who were both angry and sad, by what had happened. Harry and sally, said, we are sorry for this, maybe they will spare us. Their father said we were safe here, till, they don’t know, we live here, they will now set up many traps to catch us. These humans are not good, we told you many times, but you two don’t listen, they don’t spare their fellow human beings will they spare us.

Can’t we change our place of hiding, they still don’t know we are in attics, said Sally. Also, they brought so much, food today, including cheese, Harry added. Their mother said, shut up, you two, you both don’t know anything, I heard them discussing, there is some disease outbreak, that’s why they brought so much, commodities. And when now they know, we are here, they won’t let us live.

Why humans are so selfish? This is our planet too. Why they think, everything is for them only and we have to live in fear because of them, Sally said sadly. Her father said humans are greedy, and they have started thinking themselves as God but not all humans are bad, some are good too but now their number is very very less. And those commodities, they don’t care about them too, they don’t care about water, they are greedy for precious metals, gold, silver, etc, etc, their desires are never-ending. Once, when I and your mom, lived in one house, they brought a human salve by paying for them, so they consider humans commodity too. Harry and Sally both are shocked and sad, as due to their mistake now all of them are in danger. And also thank full, they are not humans.

Then suddenly they heard footsteps of someone, coming towards, attics, their, father screamed, now, stop discussing and come fast, we have to leave this house, as soon as possible, let go to your uncle’s place. They leave fast and heard the sound of the door opening.

And For The Roaring Flame Writing Club Activity!! Penattack#1-July 2020 for which commodity, is given as a word.

We, humans, get everything from our earth, food grains, precious metals, coal, oil, cotton, etc, a list goes on, but we don’t value anything and take many things for granted. Even we think, everything is for humans, forgetting about other beings around. In humans too, some have in surplus, some don’t have any. There is a big misbalance.

Come with me ……

Image credit- Stefan Keller- Pixabay
Don't be afraid, Come with me
To the castle, Twinkling in a twilight
Beneath the skies, Snowy mounts
Eternal silence, Abiding since ages
Only my shadows know me
On the dark side
Let go the sunshine, Let go the world
Find the truth, Trust the lies
Live the trance, Dreams are alive 
Night is beautiful 
Feel it, see it
It's a new light
The end is beginning, Beginning is end
Embrace the dark, Soul never dies
I am waiting, Time is running
Come with me, Don't be afraid
