Challenge Completed

Day 1
    dinner table conversations

siblings all riled up,
mother mediating,
father enlightening us all with silly news reports
of animals escaping, leaders misleading,
oh how i used to take them for granted
but now my ungrateful, wretched self,
finally realises the value
of these, soon to vanish
dinner table conversations.

Day 2
   zoom limerick cause i'm bored and wanted to try something new
When you fear you have too much time to think
Then just click on that treasured, blue link
Amongst coworkers, family or a childhood friend
There is simply no need to pretend
That you prefer paper, pencils or deep, blue ink.

Day 3
 the healing power of song
another one of my countless, miserable wanders
had led me to to a large, shady banyan tree
she embraced me like an old friend, 
with her outstretched roots like  open, welcoming arms
while a songbird atop her lush green leaves
sang a melancholy tune
so it seemed, that i was not alone.

Day 4
pages yellowed by drops of scattered tadka dal.
dropped by a mind engrossed in words that she wished were her own
she yearns to be a part of those worlds
to live amongst rough pirates, alluring maidens and flighty wizards
but for now, her wild imagination comes to her unfortunate rescue

Day 5
uncontrollable, relentless giggling
over long lost, childhood memories 
buried under the overwhelming burden of new lives
and still we revisit, our storied past
inside jokes revived by presentations
creatively put together by unsteady, idle minds
we are content, if our souls are.
