My Prized Possessions

Featured

My little Smiles and Laughter
Lucrative gems that sparkle
Happiness they scatter
Alter moods, of one and all.

Memories – good and bad
Jewels that forever shine
Childhood, youth, family, friends
Homes and precious faces gone

Creative moments spent
Writing fine words and rhymes
Listening to and singing
Favorite classy golden songs

Life – a necklace of pearls
Each life-breath counts
For as life seconds tick by
All valuables are gone

My response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt:  Pride and Joy
‘What’s your most prized possession?’

Luxury Unbound

My poem in response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: Feeling Fancy

“You’re given unlimited funds to plan one day full of any and all luxuries you normally can’t afford. Tell us about your extravagant day with as much detail as possible.”



Luxury Unbound

I own an average house that needs renovation
I have a nice garden but not the best in town
I have a big TV, but just a medium car
A bigger house won’t harm me, nor would a bigger car

But anytime I visit an orphanage, or an old age home
In my heart, their sad eyes, always always leave a big scar…

This ‘one’ lucky day when I have all the funds in my hand
Will go to the poor and the destitute, and give them all I can
These little luxuries that I give, will still be huge for them
Will bountifully donate online too,  as much as I can

This luxury of free ‘giving’,  this joy of generous ‘sharing’
Could never afford this before, but now I can, now I can!!!

And…having done that, if I still have some funds left…
Will do lavish shopping, indulge myself all I can
Will buy a luxurious car and a five-star quality big house
Will send funds to my mother and save for my son’s future

And last of all oblige my hubby, by offering him money to spend
Am sure he will say ‘No’… so I’ll keep the rest…safe in my bank.
