The Daily Prompt – Amble!

So today began on a sour note.  But I pulled through the sad demeanour as I got engrossed with work. A few hellos and some pleasantries from colleagues stimulated my senses and I found myself giggling at their casual talks.   Continue reading

Thinking About Yesterday’s Killings…

Today is Monday, August 7, 2017. I woke up this morning feeling sluggish and didn’t feel like leaving the bed. Or even go to work. Usually, I wake up with positive energy on Mondays because Mondays are like the breakfast of the week. If you start your day without breakfast, the rest of the day may not just align together.

So it is with the week. You can’t possibly start the week without Mondays. But this Monday is just so different. My body is just not ignited for the day. My energy is sapped and pressed down because I have been saddled with nauseating thoughts. Continue reading

Weekly Photo Challenge – Satisfaction!

This week, we are asked to share a photo of something that brings us satisfaction. It can be monumental, minor, or something in between.

The Daily Prompt – Tether!

The place was filled with people all dressed in casual summery colours. An amazing environment, hassle-free with a cool ambience. The weather was crisp and the blue and white building appeared unperturbed with a great view of the harbour. They were many yachts/boats tethered to the dock as a way to secure them in the marina. These yachts belong to most members of the boat club, who enjoy cruising in them during the summer months. Continue reading

The Daily Prompt – Pluck.

Growing up, I enjoyed eating chicken. I really do. Even now. But what I don’t enjoy was when mum asked me to kill the chicken. I never did.

At first, they thought I was just a stubborn child until they realised that I don’t even watch how it is killed because it gives me chills. Oh, it’s very true that I don’t have the guts to kill any chicken or even hurt anyone. Continue reading
