the week of recurring nightmares

beautiful sunset
to me you only herald
terrifying nights

* Haiku: A Japanese poem composed of three unrhymed lines of five, seven, and five syllables.

for laughs

all i ever need is you...
and oh! a good dollop of money too
and a good sized place to call a house
and a marriage to make us each others' legal spouse
and hope you are quite heavily insured
to cover the med. bills till you are cured
with all these perfect things in our lives
i'll be your perfect brand new wife

frantically speaking

watching you laugh and softly talk
and the chirpy cheer you inevitably spread
is like watching a baker hide his glee
at the gladdening odour of fresh baked bread

i frantically steal glances to catch you smile
and lurch when the aura around you i see
i realise i've forgotten my troubles for a while
i'm still smiling to myself as you walk past me

* for ThreeWordWednesday prompts: frantic, lurch, odour

'C' is for climber

'C' is for the agile climber who scurries up and down endless betelnut/arecanut palms in matter of seconds... he climbs one of the palms and using a hooked pole, dislodges betelnut bunches from palms all around him. the pods are then shelled to obtain the nuts, the nuts are boiled and dried... and sold.

betel leaves along with betel nuts and a variety of other spices makes for a popular after-food munch.
