Enthusiasm – Daily Prompt


when you wish for something, then
follow your footsteps
or your instinct, to be sure
reflect on concepts

or follow someone who’s great
for inspiration
be full of enthusiasm
and of course, have fun


stars in the sky
gather them and make a wish
the stars smile

Now you see me, now you don’t
Will you miss me if I’m absent?
Camouflaged perfectly well
Putting the matter in a nutshell

A normal being going through life
Will I see you in our afterlife?
The crickets chirped tediously
A caterpillar wanted to be free

A wasp embedded in an amber
A chameleon changing its colour
I’m falling on the edge of the abyss
I’m muddled but couldn’t give it a miss

My flesh is weak and I’m drifting away
I acted like a fool and I was led astray
It was a tame affair but still hidden
What was done couldn’t be undone

A secret so to speak in the mist of tides
I wish I could just take them in strides
From a poppy seed to certain flings
Nothing to whirl and have that strut

On both mind and body it takes its toll
Love soars from earth to infinity
For love of love, or heart’s solitude
Who cry for shadow and cannot tell

Begrudge I come with a plea
Never a sunny day for a feud
Tried to stifle the thoughts
Life is full of different plots


I wish I were
A doctor when I was ten
With stethoscope and
Always wearing something white
Very smart and cool
But things have changed as I grew
I’ve travelled instead
To Europe and America
I met Him Indoors
Chemistry all the way
Action and reaction
We got married instead
Now I teach English
And I love the change


Enthusiasm is a vital ingredient
In all human undertaking
Spreading like wild flowers
Tangled up with challenges
Like planets spinning forever
While angels treading inaudibly
And spacecraft hovering around
Let’s not lose hope and be patient
For tomorrow’s the day we wait
Tomorrow’s endeavour will come
Looking forward to tomorrow


He received a collection of laser pointers for his birthday.
Joey can’t wait to show them to Tom. Soon they were pointing them everywhere – at the cat, trees in the forest, people passing by. They even tried to make their own laser show, in time with the music. “That was cool!” they both said in enthusiasm.

“Come on Tom, let’s go to the airport and see if we can make the pilot turn his plane,” suggested Joey. “OK,” as Tom ran after Joey.

They looked for an appropriate place to try their laser pointers. They tried to point them to the pilot’s eyes. It was a good thing the guard saw them and told them off. No damage done, thank goodness!
