How orange is your sky?


How orange is your Sky ?

Orange enough to make you cry? 

How orange is your sky tonight?

Does it make your thoughts more bright?

Mine has a darkish reddish hue 

Perhaps a reminder of whats due! 

Will my sky ever be bright again

Will I ever laugh with you again?

Hey, how orange is your sky today….? 

We see the same piece of sky each day  

Yet one of us sees it bright and orange 

The other sees it as dark and strange!!

Where did we miss the bus ?

When did we cease to be us? 

When did the friendly orange 

Become so very dark and strange?

Orange

Whats The Good Word?


Prompt: Dictionary, Shmictionary

Time to confess: tell us about a time when you used a word whose meaning you didn’t actually know (or were very wrong about, in retrospect)

Confession time again, today!  I confessed just  yesterday I had never heard of Blood Moon till my son told me what it meant.

Well today’s prompt again takes me back to my kids… some of the words and expressions  they use so naturally, would often go right over my head unless I summoned the courage to ask them or surreptitiously look it up in the dictionary or The Miz Know-It-all Google Aunty !

Descent of The Ganges  Mahabalipuram, Tamil Nadu
Descent of The Ganges
Mahabalipuram, Tamil Nadu

This group of sculptures is known as Arjuna’s Penance, said to depict the Pandava prince’s penance to obtain Lord Shiva’s weapon. The sculpture dates back to the 7th or 8th century and is a testimony to the talent of the sculptors of that time.  It has over 100 figures of man and beast, life and nature, brought to life by artisans of that day. Truly a Marvel of mankind ‘s art and skill,  it is one of the Heritage sites protected by UNESCO.  They call it the descent of the Ganges

The lady in the foreground is my Mother , who also is to me, a living symbol of endurance.

Todays one word prompt : Screen

Slave to many  Screens, the prize I  guess, goes  to my Phone. It’s literally my lifeline at and to my work as well as my  home when I cannot be at either place for whatever reason.

Being a 24 x 7 ObsGyn Specialist,  a full-time mom and wife involves several “Me’s” and it is this gadget that keeps me connected with the others while I am busy playing one  “Me”.  Continue reading
