DIY – Easy Fix

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Easy Fix.”

Leaky Showers – Easy Fix

I always thought
singing
dancing
painting
were my forte
my neglected skills
 must learn them
rather relearn

last sunday
home alone
bath-shower got leaky
shower dripping
hot water bursting
all round flooding

long time back
had learnt the skill
of fixing leaky taps
of changing washers
practiced
off and on

this DIY skill
now came handy
thankfully I survived
but at the same time
 I realised

that fine arts
 please our soul
 quench our heart
help us connect
to nature
to God
to after-life

but it is
the basic skills
like
fixing leaky showers
that help us
live, survive
and easily
fix
our daily life

you see
things went wrong
I applied
my DIY skill
and
all was right in the world
