She stood at the window staring out at the vast expanse of the sky, her eyes reflecting the crystal blue canopy. There was not a Trace of the last night’s storm. The clear skies and calmness that followed after the thunderstorms always amazed her.
She found strength in that. If the skies could scream, bleed and cry the whole night and still be this calm and beautiful the next morning then so could she!
For a few years, I was so depressed! Everything in my life seemed to have taken a turn for the worst. My college life sucked so much that I wanted to drop out of Law school, my grandmother was ailing and was in a hospital for a long time, I had reached a rock bottom in all of my relationships: friends, family (misunderstandings and silences are more damaging than heated arguments).
“Necessity is harsh, Fate has no Reprieve” – Euripides
This month has just proved this quote to be true. Truly fate has no reprieve. Life is so uncertain you actually don’t know what’s in store for you. Are we going to be alive the next morning to turn off the alarm that we have set? Which moment, which action is going to definitely seal our inevitable death? When will we breathe our last! We don’t know anything. Nothing is certain.
I know this doesn’t actually fit. But from the time that I have read today’s prompt, all I can think about is a particularly hilarious bit from Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.
This scene just cracks me up every time I read Half Blood Prince and I have read it more than a dozen of times! I’m a Harry Potter fan through and through (Not obsessed with it but). And Ron Weasley is one of my favourite characters. He is witty, hilarious and has some awesome retorts all the time!
Driving down the long dusty road, Suraj was as impatient as his daughter to get a glimpse of his village. Many long years had passed since he had run down the winding path that led to his ancestral house. Back in the days almost all of his summers were spent here. He and his cousins had had an awesome time chasing butterflies, shepherding livestock and playing in the rivers.
I have to say this, these Daily prompts are amazing! They really challenge and push you out of your writing comfort zones. In last two weeks I have discovered some potentials in me. So happy… 🙂 Here’s another try at poetry. Hope you guys like it!
