Euphorbia milli in red flowers


I had Euphorbia milli in a couple of my flower pots. Whether they are still there? I don’t know. In November last when I visited my home in Peshawar, many plants had disappeared. My tenent’s servant doesn’t bother to water them. The lady of the house is quite indifferent. Since I was there for a short time, I couldn’t do anything worthwhile. I tried to keep my heartache at bay.

It was a revelation when my late husband R (when he was alive) showed me one of my cactus plant bearing fruit. It tasted incredible. This plant is in our village home. Our watchman had transferred it to the ground near the carport. It bears its’ fruit in August. I could never had imagined the amazing taste of it.

My Favorite Book

Daily Prompt: Off the Shelf
Take a look at your bookcase. If you had enough free time, which book would be the first one you’d like to reread? Why?

There is one book which I have read many times over, but I still haven’t my fill of it. I started reading it as a child. As a teenager (without anyone telling me) I started reading its translation along with the original words of Arabic.

I have reread it every year of my life many times, always with translation. I feel I am a better person because of it. I have always sought guidance from it.

Every time I read it, I discover a new depth, and meaning to it. I have always found solace, peace, and comfort from it. If I am worried, and open its’ pages, the verse I see confirms to my need at the moment. It’s truly a book of miracles, and a guidance for all humanity.

My favorite book is Quran.
