Weekend Writing Prompt #33 – Time


Time is how we make it
Sometimes fast sometimes slow
Could be punctual or late
Time is always moving
I have a date at eight

Time is how we make it
It never keeps still
Especially today
When every second counts
We’re watching a ballet

Time is how we make it
It can stretch for hours
Depends on our needs
Ever so unhurried
When we have done great deeds

Time is how we make it
Love spending time with you
But in a blink you’re gone
And I’m needed somewhere
Hope you’re here until dawn*

Weekend Writing Prompt #31 – Nostalgia


Our childhood memories – the innocence of youth
The time when we just played or messed around
When we lost our tooth or kissed in the booth
Played hide and seek and strolled in our compound

When we were free of responsibilities and worries
We remembered our games, our playground
When we climbed up trees and swam in the seas
We looked for treasures and happy with what we found

Our playmates, the laughter, falling out with some
Being friends again and most of all, great fun
Strolling in the park and picking up some plums
Nostalgia of the youth and regrets we have none

Weekend Writing Prompt #29 – Moonstruck – Ragtag – Wanderlust in Shadorma


be in love
world full of roses
Him Indoors
wavy sea
world falls apart without him
to love and to hold

the Revolution
I was there
in ocean
with groups of idealist
from different places

heavy heart
said goodbye to them
crossed the sea
see the world
challenges and experience
far away from home

Life in Shadorma

The ankh was a symbol of life in ancient Egypt

Ups and downs
Life as we know it
Sometimes broad
Or narrow
Accept our own challenges
Seize the day, we say

Good or bad
Funny or serious
Don’t worry
A new dawn
Feeling grateful for all things
Happy with my life

Path of life
Own way of crossing
Not smooth
Be patient
Light at the end of tunnel
There is always hope
