At first, it looked like an ordinary marble, but it was far from it. It was not ordinary because it was with him all through his childhood and even when there was no one else to play around. It was not at all ordinary because it had undergone many patches and still was his favorite toy that had stayed with him from past many years. It was more than ordinary because the day since he had become orphan, this was the only memory he had representing his past.  It was extra-ordinary because whenever he held it in his hands he felt the upbeat as it was his father’s first gift.

More importantly, he had not seen it all past these years and it was one of the first things he wanted to see. He had finally earned enough money for his operation. He was getting his eyes operated in hours and doctors had assured that he would be able to see.

Jon was getting his greatest birthday gift on his 50th birthday!

Away


This poem is written for Poetry 101 Rehab: Away . The prompt demands to pen down something on the theme “Away”.

Away is not when, 
I don’t get to see you.
I don’t get to hear you.
I don’t get to touch you.
I don’t get to smell you.

Away is when, 
I see you, Still you stay blind,
I hear you, Still you stay ignored,
I touch you, Still you stay unresponsive,
I smell you, Still you stay unaffected.

Away is not when you are far!
Away is when you are near and yet so far!

Veracity


This a challenge nominated by the blogger U R always WELCOME. The task is i cant use a single adjective!

Adjectives deliver our own opinions, but have we tried to see our thoughts objectively? From a distance? There is a quote from the book “To Kill a Mockingbird” and it is: :Atticus told me to delete the adjectives and I’d have the facts” That’s where the Veracity Challenge takes place. Veracity means conformity to facts; accuracy.

You can check the post from my nominated blogger HERE.

Rules:

  1. Write a paragraph without using a single adjective.
  2. Keep the link of the original Veracity Challenge in your post (so that the creator of the challenge may receive a pingback)
  3. Anyone can join the challenge, you don’t have to be nominated!

My attempt, rather a phrase than a paragraph.

Meanwhile at Facts home, “Who invited Adjective for the Facts Party?”. And no one described!
