In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Sparkling or Still.”
What’s your idea of a perfect day off: one during which you can quietly relax, doing nothing, or one with one fun activity lined up after the other? Tell us how you’d spend your time.
Why oh why do I have to choose?
Can’t I just let my mind run loose?
Sometimes let it sparkle , sometimes still
Sometimes exotic, sometimes run of mill.
My idea of a perfect day, if I can have my way
From madding crowds , is to be far far away
On a rainy mushy day, give me a cozy corner
Some munchies, lotsa books and a crooner.
I am quite happy on my ownsome
Even if it may make me lonesome.
Quiet companions – my phone and laptop
All this and I’ll be happy even on a rooftop.
But there are days when I want friends and fun
Where my voice can drown even that of a gun.
So my moody mind does the final choosing
Of Sparkling days or still waters- what’s amusing.
