A prompt and a Nudge !

I haven’t really posted anything worthwhile for some time now and Corinne from Everyday Gyan has been quite concerned about this writer’s block that just refuses to go away!  

Actually what I needed was a kick on my butt asking me to stop procrastinating and to just get on with the blogging but Corinne being Corinne she thought of a far better way. She put up a writing challenge on her blog and promptly tagged me on it!

The Writing Prompt says:

Grab the 7th book from your bookshelf. Open it up to page 7. Pinpoint the 7th sentence on the page. Begin a poem that begins with that sentence and limit it in length to 7 lines.

She then very good naturedly kept dismissing all my excuses about how  I simply cant write poetry and how I am too tied up at work to pen poems.

The seventh book in my book shelf was “The Book of Humour” By Ruskin Bond. And the 7th sentence on the 7th page was “How can you tell she is married?” 

And here is my humble attempt:


How can you tell
What the world holds
What adventures lie ahead
Unless you dare to step
Into the unknown
And take the road
You have never travelled before.


And to offset this very bad poetry, here is a picture of the road leading up to the Niagara vineyards that I took about a year back !

New Beginnings


"Thank God for New Beginnings. A new year, A new month and after every 24 hours a new day, with the sun rising over a new world."                                       
                                                   - George De Horne Vaizey



And on this New Years Day, an earnest prayer that the New year heralds a New Beginning for our country and the dawn of a safer and much more Humane Society.
