WITHOUT ELECTRICITY- A nursery rhyme

Standard

I wrote this rhyme for my sister’s play school for the junior science fair. It is an attempt to make children understand the importance of electricity and how it has made our lives easy and that we should save it or else our coming generations would crave for it. I hope you enjoy it with your little ones!

Benjamin Franklin has done a great deed,

He discovered electricity!

Without electricity our lives would be so dull!

Dull Dull Dull!

Our lives would be so dull.

How could we have turned on the lights?

Dark Dark Dark!

At night, our lives would be so dark!

How could we get cool air of the fans?

Sweat Sweat Sweat!

We would be wet in our sweat!

How would we have cleaned our laundry everyday?

Wash Wash Wash!

We would have to wash without the wash-ing machine!

How would we call our friends?

Tring Tring Tring!

There would be no phones to ring!

Where would we store our ice-cream?

Dream Dream Dream!

We all would dream of ice-cream!

How would our lives be easy?

Easy Easy easy!

We all would be so busy!

Therefore, save electricity as I say!

Save Save Save!

Or else the future would crave!

“Seeing longtime couples break up reminds me of what is so often forgotten…that love, relationship love, is an ultra-marathon, not a sprint, and far too many lack the stamina and dedication to keep running together…maybe it means it wasn’t true love, or maybe it just means it’s easier to quit than to keep going, I don’t know, but since I am single I am thinking this is a good place to stay for awhile and if I ever do sign up for another marathon I hope I will be able to see that stamina and dedication in my partner before we begin to run together so that we don’t end up running away from each other.”

“For Attractive lips, speak words of kindness.
For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
For beautiful hair, let a child run their fingers through it once a day.
For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone.
People, more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed. Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you will find one at the end of each of your arms.
As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself and the other for helping others.”
― Sam Levenson

“Words can be twisted into any shape. Promises can be made to lull the heart and seduce the soul. In the final analysis, words mean nothing. They are labels we give things in an effort to wrap our puny little brains around their underlying natures, when ninety-nine percent of the time the totality of the reality is an entirely different beast. The wisest man is the silent one. Examine his actions. Judge him by them.”
― Karen Marie Moning

Knew A Woman by Theodore Roethke

I knew a woman, lovely in her bones,
When small birds sighed, she would sigh back at them;
Ah, when she moved, she moved more ways than one:
The shapes a bright container can contain!
Of her choice virtues only gods should speak,
Or English poets who grew up on Greek
(I’d have them sing in chorus, cheek to cheek.)
How well her wishes went! She stroked my chin,
She taught me Turn, and Counter-turn, and stand;
She taught me Touch, that undulant white skin:
I nibbled meekly from her proffered hand;
She was the sickle; I, poor I, the rake,
Coming behind her for her pretty sake
(But what prodigious mowing did we make.)
Love likes a gander, and adores a goose:
Her full lips pursed, the errant note to seize;
She played it quick, she played it light and loose;
My eyes, they dazzled at her flowing knees;
Her several parts could keep a pure repose,
Or one hip quiver with a mobile nose
(She moved in circles, and those circles moved.)
Let seed be grass, and grass turn into hay:
I’m martyr to a motion not my own;
What’s freedom for? To know eternity.
I swear she cast a shadow white as stone.
But who would count eternity in days?
These old bones live to learn her wanton ways:
(I measure time by how a body sways.)

Knew A Woman by Theodore Roethke

THE NOTEBOOK…

Standard

Well I haven’t actually ever written about a book, I mean a book review or anything, so well this is my first time, and to be frank this is not a book review. I was not into reading romantic novels at all. I was more into sci-fi mystery sort of stuff.  Actually THE NOTEBOOK was my first romantic novel. This book somehow changed the way I think, the way I feel, the way I look at things, everything. It was sort of a life changing book for me. Everyone has that life changing phase, may it be due to an experience, a person, a movie, or maybe a book, like it was for me. The reason I bought this book was its cover, and the fact that girls of my class were gushing about Nicholas Sparks. Before you judge me saying that I judge a book by its cover, I DON’T! I did in this case because it was my first time buying a romantic novel.  So yeah as I was saying I bought this book, came home, got comfortable on my beanbag and the once in a lifetime journey began. Yes, it was like A ONCE IN A LIFETIME JOURNEY FOR ME, though now I have read it like 10-11 times but I still remember the way I felt when I read it for the first time. I read MIRACLES (people who have read it would know that it is the 1st page) and started admiring Nicholas Spark’s way of writing, the way he has described THE OLD MAN and the surroundings, the way he has conveyed how many years have gone by, everything. By the time I was at page number 7 i.e. GHOSTS, it was just me and the book. I remember having not eaten anything for 29-31 hours (I don’t exactly remember but it was like more than 1 and a half day or more than that). You could actually feel what Noah’s thoughts, Allie’s dilemma, her fiancé’s jealousy or even the mother’s  possessiveness for her daughter. You can not say who was right or who was wrong as everyone was right in their own way, everyone’s feeling were justified. I am a very pessimist sort of person, always looking at the darker side of life, this book taught me TO BELIEVE that everything can be right if you truly want it to be. I did not believe in true love or anything of such sort but this book taught me that love exists. It taught me that if you truly love someone let them go and if it is meant to be you will spend rest of your lives together. It taught me that you don’t have to be together to love each other, you can be at far off places and still be together, you don’t have to be near each other to love. It taught me to keep loving even if I might not get any in return. It taught me to keep trying even if I fail. The main thing it taught me is was YOU ONLY LOVE ONCE! Any relationship before or after that specific relationship is attraction, liking, lust, or maybe somewhat close to love, but never love! If you love someone truly, your life from now is not your own, its theirs’. LOVE IS SELFLESS and if you think you love someone but your life is more important to you than theirs’, then you don’t love that person truly, its just a feeling close to it but not love. The second most important thing it taught me was FOLLOW YOUR HEART!

“Poets often describe love as an emotion that we can’t control, one that overwhelms logic and common sense. That’s what it was like for me. I didn’t plan on falling in love with you, and I doubt if oyu planned on fallin gin love with me. But once we met, it was clear that neither of us could control what was happening to us. We fell in love, despite our differences, and once we did, something rare and beautiful was created. For me, love like that has happened only once, and that’s why every minute we spent together has been seared in my memory. I’ll never forget a single moment of it.” ―     Nicholas Sparks,     The Notebook

THE NOTEBOOK according to me is a must read to understand what love is! THANK YOU and keep loving! ❤

“You can talk with someone for years, everyday, and still, it won’t mean as much as what you can have when you sit in front of someone, not saying a word, yet you feel that person with your heart, you feel like you have known the person for forever…. connections are made with the heart, not the tongue.”
