Cause And Effect “Revisited”

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Cause, Meet Effect.”

You can single handedly create a causal relation between two things that are currently unconnected — a word and an emotion, a song and an extreme weather event, wearing a certain color and winning the lottery. What cause would you link to what effect, and why?


Oh Wow .. what if the Birds chirped and Violins played?

N  every time I saw you, I heard  “our songs” in my head?

What if every time I looked at  a cake slice longingly

My weight would go down  by a 100 grams unfailingly?


What if every time I wore the color lemon yellow

The stocks I bought an upward trend would follow?

What if  every time my left eye twitched,

My purse would get  doubly enriched ?


All these causes are easy to make and do

And all the effects on my long list, “to-do “!

Jingle bells jungle bells jingle all the way

Oh what fun it is to keep all my fears at bay!


What bliss, if any of this ever came true

Oh, Word Press Daily Prompt, I love you!

For bestowing on me this world of fantasy

Were life is no-strife and everything so easy!!!

thank you

    If wishes were … then the world would be magical. If magic were … oh what a world it would be.

    I LOVE your “what ifs.”
    It was the perfect post to find on this day.
    May your what ifs come true. :0)
