My earliest memory,
takes me back to,
when I was three,
My crazy pink fetish,
driving my mom,
up a tree!
Shopping with me,
was her worst nightmare!,
I would cling on to a pink frock,
like a leach to your hair!
That still wouldn’t satisfy me,
I would insist on trying it on,
pirouette around and ask,
Why isn’t it twirling,
pirouette: fast turn of the body on the toes or the front part of the foot,
performed especially by a ballet dancer
Daily Prompt Challenge: STAND OUT
When was the last time you really stood out in a crowd? Are you comfortable in that position, or do you wish you could fade into the woodwork?
Photographers, artists, poets: show us STANDOUT.
The last time I stood out,
I was part of a skit,
Did I enjoy it?
Of course I did!
The people watching,
appreciating my act,
a thrilling experience,
no doubt about that!
After spending time with a group of people, do you feel energized and ready for anything or do you want to hide in the corner with a good book?
Photographers, artists, poets: show us PERSONALITY.
I’m asked how I feel,
after a party,
if I jump and shout,
or slip out
Do I love to dance,
have some fun,
Hawkers on your left,
Hawkers on your right,
Poor old footpaths..
nowhere in sight!
Ever swelling crowds,
spilling on to the roads,
You step out of the house,
wondering why the hell on earth,
you chose to go by train,
when of planes, there was no dearth!
You then remind yourself,
At least it’s air-conditioned,
The first time I saw it, I was anything but impressed,
by the kiddish crayon graphics or the emotions expressed!
But something caught my eye, I didn’t know what it was,
till the day I heard a laugh from across the room-
where I was!
For all those who enjoy the serene outdoors …
It’s 7 pm, the weather is great!,
I put on my shoes, don’t wanna be late,
Grabbing my headphones, off I go,
It’s a beautiful place, for those who don’t know.
He walked alone, all by himself…as if
he owned the entire garden-,
the one behind our house that always looked empty
He was like our very own solitary reaper-,
going about his work matter of factly,
