Day 4 – Our prompt for the day (optional as always) takes its cue from our gently odd resources, and asks you to write a poem based on an image from a dream. We don’t always remember our dreams, but images or ideas from them often stick with us for a very long time. I definitely have some nightmares I haven’t been able to forget, but I’ve also witnessed very lovely things in dreams (like snow falling on a flood-lit field bordered by fir trees, as seen through a plate glass window in a very warm and inviting kitchen). Need an example of a poem rooted in dream-based imagery? Try this one by Michael Collier.
I got this weird dream, My house is filled with relatives & friends, all are busy, Like a typical South Indian traditional gathering, All the arrangements & decorations in the house is just amazing, What’s the occasion? I wonder, standing alone gazing, Some ladies with mom take me for dressing, I’m decked up like a bride, Oh my God it’s my wedding? Who’s the groom, I have never seen or met him, How does he look, how he sounds, what’s happening? I am pulled to the mantap & the pujari is chanting, Relatives, friends, brother, parent are looking at me & smiling, Who’s the guy? Where is he? I’m still wondering, Rituals taking place & suddenly they announce “I AM MARRIED”,
How could the Mangal Sutra be on my neck when the groom is still missing, I beg, if someone can please answer my query, Please tell me, How the hell am I married without the groom? It is shocking!
4th post on the challenge by YourQuote Postman on a special occasion for friendship day. The challenge is to write 7 Letters to 7 Friends from 30th July’18 to 5th August’18.
Here goes my 4th attempt on letter writing.
Dear Ashu (Friend4),
Your msg on a social site lead to our friendship. There was a phase in life when I had lost contact with all my friends including my best friend from school for various reasons, and I was all alone by myself & lonely. Though you are a virtual friend you cared so much, you were there so I could vent my heart out, you were there to listen to all my stories, you were there to make me laugh, you were there to make me strong, you send me flowers & chocolates to protect me from that evil, you messaged me lullabies every night before saying goodnight so I could sleep peacefully. Life has changed your path and we are no longer in contact. But I hope you would soon contact me back. I miss you my dear friend. Wish You A Very Happy Friendship Day Ashu 😊
3rd post on the challenge by YourQuote Postman on a special occasion for friendship day. The challenge is to write 7 Letters to 7 Friends from 30th July’18 to 5th August’18.
Here goes my 3rd attempt on letter writing.
I just couldn’t choose one name or person on this third letter coz all of them are equally important to me and met them all during my college days. They are actually my seniors but if it wasn’t for them then my college life would have never been so much fun and beautiful rather it would have been a boring dull college life. I would have been a girl who would have never had fun in life then. Thank you girls for pampering me, taking me to movies, shopping, singing with me, bunking classes and talking with me for hours together on the parking lot. Pree and Bru helping me out with the studies, giving me your notes & for making my complex life a bit easy. You girls are my angels for sure. Love you girls a lot. 🙂
The quote I choose to go with the word Naughty is- “People think that am so silent. But only my close circles and friends know how Naughty I am and how difficult to handle me”.
We all have one person in our friend circle or cousins who is very very silent; but that is only in front of strangers or acquaintance. That person is an introvert to the unknown people but an extrovert with people who are close. Such people are very naughty, yes they are. They can come out with super awesome ideas on playing pranks (be careful). Let me tell you about one naughty thing a school friend of mine did.
