Have You Heard this Version?

I inserted a little poll at the end. Just curious, especially since everyone I have shown it to has said that it was new to them…

Eensy Weensy

The Ballad of Eensy Weensy

The Eensy Weensy spider climbed up the waterspout

Down came the rain and washed poor Eensy out

Out came the sunshine and dried up all the rain

So the Eensy Weensy spider climbed up the spout again

The spider climbed the spout and she gave a little cheer

I’m almost at the top and my journey’s end is near

Then she heard a clap of thunder and down came lots of rain

And both she and all her hopes went sadly down the drain

As she lay there at the bottom the poor spider felt quite done

But, as very often happens, after rain there came the sun

The Eensy Weensy Spider soon was warm and dry

So she headed for the spout again to have another try

The moral of this story is one I’m sure you know

If you don’t make it the first time then have another go

And take a little lesson from the spider in this song

If you’re at the bottom, you won’t stay there for long

A Trail of Inspiration

writing101day5: let social media inspire you

I do not have to become lost in Twitter to find inspiration. All I have to do is open up WordPress and start reading…

Are you hungry? How about checking out Lynn or Feeding on Folly? My favorites, so far, are Samosa’s My Way and Overnight Iced Tea. They are pretty great storytellers too.

Eat too much? Need some motivation to get you off the couch? Visit Paula or Kat. Their honest protrayals of their struggles will help to influence you to be more physically fit. I just linked to their about pages, but you should read one of their posts to receive the full effect, here or here.

Need a writing prompt? Visit Nicola for her Stellar Six Word Story Challenge. Want to write about something a little more personal? How about Impromptu‚Äôs Sandbox Writing Challenges? Feeling nervous about posting? Need some Anonymous Courage? Just remember Colette‚Äôs words ‚Äútoday is always a good day to try‚ÄĚ. And if that is not enough, just repeat my new mantra, stolen straight from Sarah with her ‚ÄúThis n that tip: Be brave, just write, you don‚Äôt have to be perfect, just write.‚ÄĚ(How perfect is that?)

Please keep in mind that this is only a very small portion of the wonderful words that have motivated me . So please, all of you, keep writing, keep posting, keep inspiring. One day, I hope to able to inspire you too.

Just a Reminder


All this time
The sun never says to the Earth
“You owe me.”
What happens
With a love like that
It lights the whole sky
– Hafiz

I am not going to tarnish this beautiful quote by following it with a lengthy post. I will tell you this: this poem repeated itself over and over in my mind the evening I took this photo. I couldn’t help but watch in amazement as the sun caressed the clouds with its golden glow before dipping below the horizon, just as if it was kissing them goodbye.

More of Hafiz’s work (born app 1320 a.d.) can be found¬†here.

writing101 day 7: Hook ’em with a quote


Would just like to share this with you

Nimz revealed

I peeped out of the main door.
There was a striking innocence in his small eyes buried under those thick eyebrows. He had a long beard & a green hat over his rough hair.
In a moment Grandpa paused their conversation and turned to me. His eyes too pointed towards me. I gave the most innocent smile that a six year old can give. Grandpa gestured with his hands to come. I quickly made my seat over his arm rest of the easy-chair. I kept eyes on at the old man who is still smiling at me. I exchanged looks with my Grandpa in a confusion on what to say.
‚ÄėThis is Divakar.‚Äô He said to me. I looked at him. He is still wearing that smile.
‚ÄėMy granddaughter. Shaji‚Äės little one.‚Äô Grandpa¬†introduced me to him.
I gaped gratefully at my Grandpa for introducing me to an Old man. They continued the conversation…
