Farm Day, Fun Day

When the schools are closed for summer vacation, then it’s the time to explore new places. As I come from a part of the world where we can find a mini farm in most of the houses, I was missing animals in my life. My daughter is an animal lover. “Mama, can I keep that cat?” “Mama, how about a dog?” “Oh! I love rabbits. They are so cute.” “Mama, can we keep chicks or ducks as pets.” These are just some of the examples that she asks about keeping a pet at home. So, we decided to go to a farm today.

The place is so beautiful and serene. A wonderful place for children as well as adults. My daughter loved feeding animals there. Another attraction for her was to find the fairies and their houses. The walk and the nature itself helped me to relax and calm my mind.

Sheeps came running as soon as they saw us. They knew we had their food and I had an excited kid beside me.

Those hens reminded me of my childhood. I had hens, Blacky and Browny when I was a kid. I still remember the day they died one after another because of some flu. My mom told the news when I came back from school. I did cry a lot on that day.

Ducks were hungry so as the goose. So, the goose decided to peck them all to have some food.

While, other geese were enjoying a lazy day.

Turkeys were into some show off mood today, I guess. To be honest, my daughter got afraid of them.

I loved these two and it was so much fun watching and especially feeding them. They are so adorable.

Those piglets reminded my daughter of her favorite character, Peppa Pig. They do love muddy puddles!!

In short, it was an absolute fun day!!

A Fairy Tale

A girl who loved the light,

Sitting all alone in the night,

Had been waiting for her knight,

As she was too kind to take a fight.

When the darkness surrounded her,

She found out that the knight only wanted to be a heir,

The promise he made was just a cold word,

As he wished to fly away like a migrating bird.

A girl who loved the light,

Started to look for a new site,

Where she could be herself without a fright,

So, she travelled a long way to see the light.

She kept herself busy in her new place,

Helping others and making a living for her own space,

It occurred to her that she had to be both humble and bold,

That’s when she found the light right next to her sword.

Her journey didn’t stop in finding her spark,

She knew there are others who lived in the dark,

The girl who loved the light?

Tale is that she became the knight of light.

Caged…

Never thought of going to prison,

But it seems like it’s the season,

To cage myself in my thought,

And to watch what my life has brought.

The good, the bad and the worst,

Creeping in my mind to be the first,

Even thoughts are competing against each other,

As they are too proud to follow another.

Why does this competition never cease?

Everyone wants to be the best at their ease.

One after another, they just come and go,

Leaving their trails, so deep and thorough,

Scribbling their signatures in my mind,

Making sure that there is no escape to outside.

The Volcano

Once there was a beautiful place with lots of trees, plants, animals and birds. A place like heaven where the day started with the blooming flowers and chirping of birds and ended with an amazing view of sunset and the nights were so serene. A volcano too lived among them. She loved to see lives around her and was proud of the place where she was situated.

One day, the volcano was tagged as an extinct one as she had not erupted for a long time and scientists could not find any activity within her. So, people started to come to this beautiful place to see the volcano as well as to make some business out of it. Many of them who came, were not that gentle towards her or to the place which she loved. They exploited it so much that place started to ruin it’s beauty. As people thought that the volcano was extinct, they used to go nearer to her and threw stones at her. People love to tease and attack something which they think that can’t react, don’t they? It continued for a long time and what happened was unexplainable. The volcano erupted with a maximum intensity and she started to spit fire balls along with the lava and poisonous gas. The whole place was turned to ash and the lava engulfed everything, people, animals, birds, trees and plants. Nothing survived.

Now, the volcano was tagged as active. People were afraid not even to go nearer to volcano but to the place. She waited patiently because she knew that the place will be beautiful and she will be happy. After a few years, she was proud of the place again where she was situated and she lied dormant once again watching the beautiful sight around her hoping that she won’t be tagged as extinct again.

I have tried to make my point using a parable here. I hope that you will like it. Please leave your comments on the topic as I would really love to read them.

Happiness..

Happiness is holding someone in your arms and knowing you hold the whole world.

Orhan Pamuk

I thought of drawing something today and this is what came out. I can’t believe that she is growing up so fast that I won’t be able to carry her anymore soon.

They say a person needs just three things to be truly happy in this world: someone to love, something to do, and something to hope for.

Tom Bodett

Attitude is a choice. Happiness is a choice. Optimism is a choice. Kindness is a choice. Giving is a choice. Respect is a choice. Whatever choice you make makes you. Choose wisely.

Roy T. Bennett

Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.

Dalai Lama XIV

The best way to cheer yourself is to try to cheer someone else up.

Mark Twain

The Treasure..

A treasure is lost somewhere in deep.

Something so valuable that one needs to keep.

A treasure is stolen by a wicked witch.

How hard have I tried to keep it safe from the breech?

A treasure I had to give up because of the sinister disease.

Can it be a reason for me to cease?

A treasure was taken from me by the people around.

Shall I hide myself when they surround?

A treasure was vanished behind my wrinkled face.

As old I get, should I be in the loneliest place?

At last, I found out how silly I was,

To think even that the treasure was,

Taken by someone or something from outside,

As I found that the treasure was all along inside.

I started to give a smile to the mirror,

First thing in the morning when no one was nearer,

And when I stepped out of the house, I gave a smile to a crying child,

Then it occurred to me that this treasure can be shared to someone in need.

It made my day as it felt like a bliss,

The lost treasure was found on my lips.

A Forgotten Mother

What takes a heart to be at rest,

To not to think of all the days which were the worst.

What takes a mind not to wander to,

All the way back which were never meant to.

However I try, I can’t call them back,

It’s like they have been taken from someone in the past.

Never thought of a beautiful present turning out to be a dark pass,

A gift to hold and travel to a burning past.

Haunting memories of an innocent smile,

Blue eyes with an ocean inside,

The days were so wonderful with you on my side,

All those pictures are talking to me and tearing me from inside.

When all mothers are celebrating the day with their children by their side,

All I can hope is you are at rest with no pain to cry,

Oh my baby! I hope you are having a good time with God by your side.

Dedicated to all the mothers who lost their children.
