Earth Day

Photo by Akil Mazumder


We keep a day for the Earth,
To reflect upon our deeds;
Debate on the endless greed,
Which ruin the world.
Extreme climate is the reward,
Sadly the animals and birds;
Which do not have a hand,
In the earth’s destruction,
Will perish first.

Then humans will follow,
And the Earth shall watch;
Her creations suffer and exit.
Once more she’ll rebuild herself,
And sigh, remembering the people;
Who predicted the end of the world.

How to write a simple note. — jenny’s lark

For many years now you’ve heard me repeat the suggestion to pen handwritten notes. Handwritten notes are little treasures for the recipients, and the act of writing them is a particular and special kind of gratitude practice that may be trendy to talk about now but that has always, always been true. One of the […]

Underground water is easily pumped out due to the pressure underground. When a drilling machine drills for water, it comes out with great force, throwing the water high up; creating a wonder among the onlookers.

History Repeats Itself

This is a popular saying which we all have heard, but unfortunately we have always failed to learn from history. We are lucky to have all the relevant information from the past to fall back upon. Like the pandemics in the past centuries. The wars and the famines that have devastated mankind in the past. Yet, we seem to be deliberately shutting our eyes and committing the same mistakes which led to the catastrophes. It is time to understand that one or two people cannot be allowed to ruin lives of many. It is possible to overule such orders which our heart knows to be wrong. Standing up for the right has its rewards, just like being accomplice to the wrong has its long term punishments. It is time to gear up for protecting nature which is heating up beyond limits. Let us pledge to learn something from the past and make the future better for future generations.

Why Writers Procrastinate

Lorraine Ambers

Hello, fellow creatives!

Ah, procrastination! Ever find yourself filing a tax return when you’re supposed to be fleshing out a character? Or maybe, clearing out the airing cupboard instead of starting the first round of edits? Yes, we’ve all been there. Suddenly, gardening is far more appealing than plodding along with a draft once you hit the middle of a project. Procrastination can be a slipper slope to us mere creatives.

Unfortunately, there is only one universal truth to writing and that is to sit down and get it done. And that’s all right in principle, but let’s slow things down, and take a look at why we procrastinate in the first place.

Ever wondered if there are certain individuals who are so driven and so focused, that they never let such forces come into play. Well, I’ve yet to find one person, let alone an artist, who hasn’t avoided…

A Birdie Song

Photo by Joyston Judah

Knock, knock, knock on my window pane,
I wondered who could it be.
I opened my eyes to see a bird, from a nearby tree.
She knocked the pane as if to ask,
‘My dear, how do you do?’
She was pretty with a little turf and wings green and blue.
I told her I was fine and, asked how was she;
With rolling eyes and chirping sound,
She told something to me.
I understood that she meant good,
And wished her a happy day.
She flew away with her vibrant wings,
But left me feeling gay.
The little things that come across each moment of our lives,
Are priceless gifts as memories that helps us to thrive.
