You Think You Have Time

Our time on earth is limited

It doesn’t wait for anyone

Seconds passes into minutes

And minutes into hours

The day no longer remains

All that remains is a memory

This is my attempt at a quote and poem challenge from Gwenice http://thechaserofdreams.wordpress.com

Thank you Gwenice for nominating me for the challenge. Sorry I am just taking part for one day. Hope you won’t mind.

Anyone wanting to take part? Please feel invited to do so.

Why Can’t The Dishes

Daily Prompt: Those Dishes Won’t Do Themselves (Unfortunately)

Why Can’t The Dishes

First Name

If you had to switch your first name, what name would you choose and why?

I didn’t like my name though it meant breeze
My father named me with it for life
I couldn’t change it despite my efforts
I cried tears amid my strife

It was a common name everyone had
I wanted to be named Riffat
It evoked memories of altitudes
High mountains from where I sat

Vistas of high mountains reaching the sky
The world spread before me and I so high

I had earlier written a post about my name. Please do visit.

To Go To Sleep

If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?


If I could change one thing about myself , it would be to get to bed on time and go to sleep. I will be yawning but I won’t do my last minute rituals so that I should sleep. I take a long walk at night with my son. After coming back I feel tired. What I should do is:
Go immediately to the washroom.
Wash my face (a nightly ritual), and do Wadu.
Say my prayer and go to bed.

What I do is:
Start reading a book or answer my e mails or read any interesting stuff I come across.

My Poem.

To get to sleep is a big headache for me
I forget time and get lost in a book
The vast labyrinth of Internet calls me
I wander around eager to look

What should I do is a big question
Tried to find answers haven’t been able to
Sure it’s hard and difficult for me
Wish I get to bed on time and hold onto


To Go To Sleep

I Need God

Daily Prompt: The Golden Hour
6.00 AM: The best hour of the day, or too close to your 3.00 AM bedtime?
Show DAWN.

However late I sleep, due to my own bad habit of not getting to bed on time, I usually wake up around five in the morning.
Why? Because I need to go to the bathroom otherwise it will be hogged by H, my grandson. He then very kindly occupies it for the next thirty minutes. So I have to time it to be the first. The third one Sn keeps on banging at the bathroom door, simultaneously yelling at H to hurry up otherwise both of them will be late for the school bus.

The reason I have to be early is, I have to get up and say my Fajr Prayer and so my day begins.
My Poem.

Dawn begins with a prayer
A prayer to the Almighty Being
He is my God, my anchorage
To Him in the end I’ll be going

I need God, He doesn’t need me
I have to pray for my own salvation
The early dawn I need to pray
To remember, to give thanks and then I am done

To confess: I am groggy in the morning if I don’t get the needed quota of sleep to replenish myself.
