Do I Love Clothes?

Daily Prompt: The Clothes (May) Make The (Wo) man
How important are clothes to you? Describe your style. If you have one, tell how appearance impacts how you feel about yourself. Show STYLE.

Whenever I watch National Geographic and see naked people in jungles, I feel lucky and blessed in having clothes to wear. I give thanks to God that I am not one them. I appreciate what I have. Clothes and manners do not make a person, but they do improve appearances. I don’t think you can deny this?

Clothes protect you from the elements. The harmful sun rays in summer and cold in winter. Clothes announce you to the world who you are. If you are dressed in shabby clothes, people don’t respect you.

Buying new clothes does take a lot of consideration. You require money first of all to spurge on new clothes. The other thing required is time to look around. You need patience, lots of it. What you are seeking and you find it you are pleased beyond any doubt.

I must confess clothes are my weakness too. I do love to add to my existing wardrobe. Good clothes enhance your personality and build up your confidence. My favorite colors are blue, green, white and grey. I love clothes in cotton more than in silky material. My criteria for buying is if I look good in it, the color suits me I buy it. I stifle my heart pangs at the cost of it.

Good clothes makes you feel better. Wearing them you are ready to conquer the world. People tend to get impressed by what you wear.

I love getting new clothes. There is a huge drawback. The one thing I dislike about myself is, I keep on hanging onto my old ones. It is sheer torture and combine with it the mental agony I go through, I can’t get rid of my old clothes. It seems I am parting with good friends. There is the matter of space in the closet too. If I don’t part with the old ones, how can I get new ones? See this is a big dilemma for me.

Hello Everyone. Don’t you love getting a new wardrobe? A Happy Sigh……I am not alone.

Do I Love Clothes?

One Of Them

Daily Prompt: New Internet Order
All the world’s countries have decided that the Internet itself needs a government. Your country asks you to run for Prime Minister of the NET- do you accept?
Show LEADER.

20131003-091104.jpg
A leader is a person who looks after his country
Whether he is in office or not
Selflessly he works for the betterment of his country
Whether he does gain or not

In today’s world a leader is becoming a scarcity
Most of them are corrupt
Liars, opportunists, hypocrites
Looking only for their own interests

Makes you sick when you think of them
Why would you like to be one of them

Books and Blogs

Daily Prompt: Reading Material
How do you pick what blogs or books to read? What’s the one thing that will get you to pick up a book or click on a link every single time?
Show CHOICES.

I was a Bookworm, and now I have turned into a Blogworm. May I coin such a phrase?

Skipping and jumping with abandoned glee
Devouring blogs which take my fancy

I don’t know how my sixth sense or to say it accurately my book sense and blog sense developed. I gradually acquired this ability in both the cases.

Books I started reading them, very early in my childhood. As I grew up my reading choices also changed. I liked mysteries and horror stories. Probably must have been a little fiend myself. I loved autobiographies. I read all the great classics.

Those days are over now. I only read light fiction now. I keep at quite a distance from murder mysteries or sad ones. I cry buckets of tears at sad movies and books.

I look at the back cover of a book. See what is written and if it appeals to me, I take it. If it doesn’t, though I may have heard tons of praises about it, I don’t read it.

The same thing goes for a blog. Normally I like light, entertaining and humorous stuff. I am new to the blogging world. Gradually I am developing a discerning eye. There are great bloggers around me. Somedays I wish the day stretches so that I enjoy what others have written. There are great finds. My wish is for spare time to visit the blogs I like.

I Would Love To Be A Cloud

Daily Prompt: Fearful Symmetry
Pick a letter, any letter. Now write a story, poem, or post in which every line starts with that letter.
Show SYMMETRY.

If I would be a cloud
I would play across the sky
I would skip, and I would run
I would be over the mountains high

I would love to be a cloud
I would play all day round
I would pelt the earth with rain
It would be the only work I found

Accumulating Junk

Daily Prompt: Clean House
Is there “junk” in your life? What kind? How do you get rid of it?
Show JUNK

Junk is what I accumulate, adding to it in bits and piles
My husband used to be mad at me, it spread for miles

Someday I would try to remove, things I kept hoarding for years
Would sit to the task, would get up and leave it for another year

It’s sorry state of affairs, removing junk I can’t do
Woe betide me, if I throw away one thing
Next day It will be the one thing I need to

Hoarder by nature, would like to change, it’s difficult for me
The leopard may change it’s spots, I can’t change the hoarder me

Should find a way and stop excusing
Throw away the junk and do some removing
That will be the ‘New’ me

I am trying to imagine. It’s failing. I am delving straight to earth.

20130928-091013.jpg
Three years from now, I don’t know whether I will be alive or not.
One thing I am sure is of getting more wrinkles on my face. Like this:

My writings may get better. Let’s HOPE so. I started writing this year in February, at the behest of my daughter. She was the one to encourage me. I wouldn’t have written one word even. You do need someone at your back, but she is far away from me.

Writing is like driving. When you drive more, your driving improves. I am hoping with more writing, it will improve. I will keep on SCRAMBLING.

I may learn to draw better and better photos too.

Better poetry too.

Learning in life goes on.

Here is to a better blog in the year 2016.

Life is a mystery, one doesn’t know
What lies ahead, would love the info
Echoes from the past, will follow
Hoping for the best, what life will bestow

Learning In Life Goes On

My Soul To Keep

It was like the devil had taken my soul to keep. I let the bomb rip through her pretty head. I forgot my vow of secrecy to my husband. I forgot what I was taught, while growing up. Never hurt anyone with words or deeds.

Her face fell. She was shaken beyond words. The guests’ eyes were on me, shocked at my brutal words to her. No one could have imagined the gentle me, capable of such a callous behavior.

Did remorse touch me at the sight of her face? No. I was beyond caring. I was done with her.

With an assumed nonchalant air, I came out of the room, and went to call my husband, so that we could leave.

I had heard her talking to my husband, belittling me behind my back. My husband was laughing and saying, “Is that so?”

I was furious. I thought she was my best friend. With shattered belief I recognized her for what she was. She was a snake behind her wily charms.

That’s why I let on what my husband had told me not to divulge.

Her husband was having an affair with his secretary.
