The Words I Speak

If I hang your words around my neck,

Will they be a garland of pink roses?
Or will they be a garland of brown thorns?

Will they form a halo round my head?
Or will they pierce my life like pointed daggers?

“May the words of my mouth and the meditation
of my heart be pleasing to you, O LORD..”

Hello Beautiful

Hello beautiful,
Looking at you
I find sweetness
Into your heart
I descend deeper
I find beauty
Knowing you
A treasure

Daily Prompt: Descend

See also Beautiful Soul

Author’s notes:
There is hidden beauty in everything and everyone we see. We just have to search it out if we want to find it. Also, if you see beauty and sweetness in your dreams and aspirations, you will descend to any level of hard work and dogged determination to work it out and fulfil it.
When you find beauty in whatever you do, work becomes play.

The Pursuit of Tomorrow

In pursuit of tomorrow’s gains
We neglect today’s gifts
In pursuit of tomorrow’s beauties
We neglect today’s blessings

That which I do not have
Let me not thirst for
That which I do have
Let me be thankful for

Let not the majestic morrow I seek
Keep me from contentment today
Let not the luxurious life I seek
Keep me from truly living everyday

Daily Prompt: Pursue

A Symbiotic Sensation

He flies with a purposeful buzz
He spots her in the fields
Displaying herself like a peacock
In bright delicate purple petals
Eagerly, he draws closer
How beautiful she looks
As she invites him in
She needs him
She needs the fresh pollen dusts
He needs her
He needs her sweet nectar
Like a gentleman
He perches on the royal petal
Soft and smooth like a feather
He must treat her gently
He inserts his proboscis
He tenderly sucks
She yields to his demands
She doesn’t hold back
An exchange-
A symbiotic sensation
A scientific fulfilment
Hinging on a mutual bond
He strokes her petals
She flaps in content
And bids him farewell
As she proceeds to pollinate
He responds with a last glance
As he proceeds home
To give the sweet nectar
To his beloved queen

Daily Prompt: Symbiosis, Purple

Reflections From Life #5

We must know who we are and walk in it. If we are not convinced of our identity, we will be swayed by every wind of theories and hypotheses. Know your strength and weaknesses. Don’t try to copy and be like somebody else, let your inner beauty shine through and let the world love you for who you are. Some may not like you but at least, you are true to yourself.
As for me, I know that I am the daughter of the Most High God.  I Am A Child Of God.

Change and Glow

Change is subjective
Change can be good
Change can be bad
Depends on what you want to see;
Change is inevitable,
And change is a constant
It’s always on the move
Like the second hand on my grandfather’s clock;
When we reject good change, we stop growing
When we accept great change, we start learning
When we avoid good change, we miss opportunities
When we embrace great change, we choose the path
To learn from life and gain insights
Define your change, choose your moves
Know your limits, excel to the limits
Add some aesthetics, sprinkle in some glitter
Beautify your life, change and glow
Always change for the better
And be smarter when you change

Daily Prompt: Aesthetic, Glitter

Media Bludgeoning

Thinking about this mid 18th century word with an uncertain origin and all I could think of is phrases like “bludgeoned to death by a mob” or “bludgeoned to slavery and a life of hardship”. The word may seems a bit far-fetched and like me, you may be struggling to think of something to write. But I’ve just discovered that the word is much nearer to us than we think.

Today we are bludgeoned by the media and our thought process are subtly and surely becoming affected if not changed. We are bludgeoned by the vivid pictures of naked or scantily dressed men and women, which have ricocheting effects in the mind or makes it acceptable and fashionable to dress as such.
We are bludgeoned with constant biased news about politicians and elections, hence we kind of make up our minds who we support based on the leaning of that medium.
We are bludgeoned about wars in many countries and altercations between political leaders which makes us develop, so to say, righteous anger, but we are not even given the full picture of the power tussle and political mind games played behind closed doors.
We are bludgeoned with zero sized models who have perfect bodies, hair and face which leaves many of us in the plus size range feeling inadequate and probably less human.
We are bludgeoned with many try-your-luck programs or indirect gambling where you win large amounts of money just by answering the right questions or picking the right numbers, which leaves many hopefuls quitting jobs and foregoing the core values of hardwork, commitment, patience and perseverance.

Everyday we are bludgeoned with information, documentaries, movies and stories, though seemingly harmless but content-packed with messages or lessons that could be regarded impertinent if said in person. It’s not going to stop, it’s getting worse and will keep getting worse. The question then is, what are we going to do about it?

Daily Prompt: Bludgeon

And So What?

You won the Nobel Prize, yes and so what?
You drive a Rolls Royce, yes, what about it?
You’re richer than the Queen, yes and so what?
You own a house in Monaco, yes and so what?
You only travel in your private jet, yes, what about it?
Your figure is more size zero than Posh, and so what?
Your clothes are only custom made, yes and so what?
You’ve travelled all around the world, yes and so what?
You own shoes more than Imelda Marcus, yes and so what?
You graduated from Cambridge University, yes, and so what?
You only eat specially prepared exotic foods, yes and so what?
You have 10million followers on social media, yes , and so what?
You have the latest iPhone, iMac, Samsung Galaxy, yes and so what?

My Point: The physical possessions you treasure is in another person’s trash can. Today’s beauty is discarded tomorrow when another beauty is discovered which ends in the trash when another beauty is uncovered,… and the circle continues. Life is not measured by abundance of the things we possess but by the number of people whose lives changed for the better because we cared enough to help.
So get off your high horse, go out in the sun now it’s here, loosen up, have a laugh and just have fun with your family and friends. Today is the first day of summerfor goodness sake!

Happy Summertime everyone!

Daily Prompt: Summer
