Old Poems...New year..

Hello :)
So its finally the end of 2010...And the count down has begun:)
Here's a poem that I had written when I was 10 years old...n it was 2000's eve.I found it while I was going through my old poems and felt compelled to share it:)


Millennium Millennium the Bi millennium is coming,
With all the fresh ideas and the new saplings...
Just think about it
and You will never forget the hit,
Millennium Millennium the Bi millennium is nearing.
Welcome it with sweet words like good morning.
Think of the day,
Everyone filled with gay..
Decorating the houses like honey bee,
Fully busy whatever it may be..
Wah! What a day it would be,
With all the eagerness to celebrate the Bi millennium.

LOL:) I was so proud of my poetry skills;) Wish you all a very Happy new year!!:) Have fun!!

I will not restrict the number of posts and will keep posting as and when I feel like it. 
Looking forward for a fresh start now!!:)

Just stuffs...

Have been quite busy with life now...So here's just a few things that I did ...not very recently.

Its just funny how I seem to make time when I have work from morning to evening to do all these things...but I just seem to not have any time at all during the vacation to spend on the small pleasures in life and it all just seems to pass by in a whirl wind. Well I guess it is my fault considering I cant seem to stop hopping from one house to another each day (Oh don't worry its not random houses ...just my cousin's houses and for sleep overs:)) plus have a new trilogy that I seem to be hooked to!!:)

Ooh and I almost forgot...Wish you all a belated Merry Christmas...:)

The home...

I just wanted to let the pictures do the talking...

Just thinking: Do animals and plants ever feel unsatisfied about their homes like sometimes people tend to feel?

Sea horses !!!

My cousin got these Do-it-Yourself HobbyIdeas engraving kit and I decided to give it a try...

We are supposed to scrape out the parts which are red in color using the tool given. The part above the dotted line was for practice.(which,I have to say was very useful!!)

Soon I was hooked and decided I ll finish the whole thing and just give her the finished product ;) :)

I love the way it looks...the combination of copper color and black is pretty amazing!!:)

A walk that I'll remember...

I went to my cousin's house a few days ago and we both had gone for a long walk around her house. I was as usual snapping photos of all things when I just got a thought...Just like how humans have different reactions when in front of camera, how wonderful/weird(depend on the reaction) would it be if everything else too reacted to camera...This is what I think were the reactions of my subject:

The sun smiled as it cast a rainbow in the sky.

The lights twinkled like diamonds on a bride's neck

The hungry animals ignored my presence

The blue flowers complained about the lady bug

This little pretty flower set its hair pollens

And the big red one observed its surrounding.

The tiny crater called for my attention

And the massive rocks stood erect and serious.

The roads puffed-up their chest and made themselves seem longer

Yet this brave girl took on the path less taken

The exited city showed off its colors

And the barren land proudly exhibited its own set of emotions.

The struggling tree looked up with hope         

while the naive leaf flirted with the camera.

This bouquet sent a silent message to be unique and yourself

The whole series would feel incomplete if I didnt include the picture of this family who saw me clicking pictures and requested me to click one picture of them too...I love the expressions on each one of them and the green background just adds to the whole country side-feel of the picture:)

Chapter 6(2010 AD)
Elizabeth insisted that she do some work around the house to earn her food and shelter. She said she could clean up the house or even the garden. But Charlie insisted that she take at-least a days’ rest before she could start working. To tell the truth he wasn’t comfortable with her working and wanted just some time to think of the recent events on his own.
He led her towards the guest house which was a little to the left of the main house. But when Elizabeth saw him turn in that direction she asked him incredulously “Are you making me sleep in the stable?” and she blushed realising she had spoken her thought out aloud. Charlie stopped in his tracks. “No, the stable has been converted into a guest room as we no longer keep the horses. Did...is this the same house you lived in?” he asked. She nodded and they continued along the path. Once they reached the guest room he showed her how to work with the shower and turn on the heater. He gave her Kathy’s skirt and blouse. The fascination on Elizabeth’s face was quite apparent at the new inventions but she was still a little apprehensive about the clothes. She said with a small laugh, “I can now imagine how Sarah must have felt coming from her past.” Charlie didn’t, but still he nodded his head.
The next day Charlie gave her breakfast. He had decided the previous night that his mother might be a better person to deal with Elizabeth till Kathy came back. So he asked her to freshen up and took her to his parents’ house. They made small conversation where Charlie told about his family and how she could help in that place especially with Scintilla having had a miscarriage and needing a few days rest. He had already called his mother and filled in on the new developments and the required arrangements had been made for a few days. Of course he couldn’t tell her that she was from the past as they wouldn’t believe and probably scold him for letting such a girl live with them, so he decided to tell them that she was a from a small village in a foreign land .That would make it much easier to explain the accent and would be convenient reason for her lack of knowledge of the present day inventions.
Elizabeth listened to him carefully including the instructions to keep up with the fake identity. Soon they reached Charlie’s parent’s place and he introduced her to his mom, dad and Nat. His mother welcomed her warmly with a hug, a cookie and a big glass of orange juice. She always seemed to think orange juice and cookie could help solve any problem in life...probably one look at the sad eyes of Elizabeth were enough to let his mom know of her pain...His father gave a curt nod and went back to reading the newspaper and Nat who seemed to have just woken up did a comical curtsy, which  would have gone unnoticed by everyone else except that she curtseyed back!!! That certainly caught attention of everyone in the family. “Oh you make a fool of yourself and look she responds so as to ensure you don’t get embarrassed. If I were you I would forget all about that grocery gal , young man” his father said. Charlie could hold back his laughter no longer and soon everyone joined in including a red faced Nat, except for poor Elizabeth who just smiled politely, unsure of what had just happened.
After making some small talk, Elizabeth and his mom went to get on with some chores around the house and Charlie decided to give his brother’s new game a try. He had to admit that the game was distracting and pretty good especially since he won the game. He wasn’t sure if Nat let him though but he didn’t let that bother him much. He was eager to know when exactly Kathy would be back as he didn’t know how long he could keep Elizabeth’s identity a secret from his family.
He called Kathy as soon as he reached home and was more than exited to know that she would be back the next day morning!! And he hadn’t decided on the perfect dish to cook yet!!! His plan of having the perfect engagement would now have to a little astray now especially considering how he would have to visit his new clients at the construction site tomorrow afternoon but he intended to make full proper utilization of the morning hours. So he got down to preparation and the rest of the day was spent in cleaning the house and getting the right recipe and ingredients.
It was only when Nat called to tell him that he would be escorting Elizabeth to the guest room, that  Charlie remembered the real reason behind Kathy’s early return.  Yet nothing could now hamper his excitement at meeting her tomorrow. When Nat and Elizabeth reached home he was surprised to see them talk and laugh and for the first time Elizabeth seemed to be genuinely enjoying her time. And the fact that Nat had taken up the responsibility to make conversation was really surprising. Soon Elizabeth retired for the night and again surprising Charlie, she had a “Computer for Dummies” book in her hand. ” You have already had your influence on her I see” he told Nat.  “ It’s surprising how one has been born in this age and hasn’t even seen a computer  till now Charlie. I don’t know man...she seems genuine and sweet and you know...really curious...And believe me she really has  never before touched a computer. Or a camera for that sake of matter. Mum was telling me that she didn’t know how to operate the dishwasher, coffee machine and the washing machine. When we gave her coke she started spluttering and literally spraying all over the place. Yet let me tell you its not for lack of curiosity or ability. She has been learning some faster than the other, but learning never the less. And  she made this really weird tasting porridge today for lunch...Oh and guess what she doesn’t find computer very interesting or useful!!! Can you believe that!!!” She saw a use for the coffee maker, for the telephone, for the washing machine and dishwasher...but she couldn’t figure out why we have to have computers...Thats why I gave her that book....Oh if she can read she will know its worth and oooh wont she be sorry for what she said..and haha...hehe.hehe...you wont belive the disaster that she was with the oven...man she’s awful at baking...I’ll tell you that!!!” “Stop Nat, take a breath in between will ya you have been speaking about her for like 10 mins straight...I see she’s had an influence on you as well...” “He come on big bro you weren’t at home today anyone would be talking about such a strange little girl let me tell ya that...We had to be at careful throughout the day as we had no idia as to what she would do next..or ask about next.” It must have been difficult for all of them today, but somehow the slight flush told Charlie that Nat atleast might have answered a few too many questions than was necessary. “Speaking of you being a no show today what were you doing all cooped up in your house? Dont tell me you are still not done with that book!!”  Hmm quickly changed the subject too...Definitely something happening in there Charlie thought...but decided not to probe further...for now. “I have been making preparations my dear brother, time for you to get a sister-in –law don’t you think???” he said. “Wow! Oh my GOD are you going to propose to Kathy? Finally” He said with a smile “All the best bro... And don’t worry if she says no, its probably because she wants to marry me don’t take it personally” “Oh no don’t worry we are family and I could never take it personally Nat...you did get my charm and a few of the same genes as mine  after all!!!” and they got into a friendly banter and little brotherly scuffle...
