Cold Hands

-A work of imaganation-

A dead body lay on the ground before me,

Left lying forlornly across the grass,

Nobody wept nor prayed,

No words were said,

The air silent,

Heavy with death,

Scented with innocence,

Blowing with regret,

The last thoughts of the corpse,

I dared to hold hands with.

 

Her hands were cold,

I lay beside her,

We slept under the willow,

Weeping as he tried to reach the earth,

She looks young,

Undeserving of her fate,

My heart weeps with each thud,

Holding her cold cold hands,

While my soul melts for her.

Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan

As a block buster novel,  you would have seen  The Heroes of Olympus on the shelf. Critically acclaimed by The New York Times, School Library Journal and Child Magazine, this series is worth the read. The novel of the five that will be featured here is The Lightning Thief, the first and foremost novel that spirals into The Heroes of Olympus, and The Trials of Apollo. This novel follows the life of Percy Jackson.

This is no ordinary middle school life, but one filled with monsters and the Greek myths. Lessons about friendship and the lengths people go to save them is revealed, through a witty backdrop of New York and Manhattan. A perfect afternoon read, even for adults.

Microwavable

The kettle broke,

Its red button won’t light up,

The plug will still plug,

But with no electric current,

The water won’t heat,

Nor warm,

Just a lukewarm mess in the stainless pot,

Until…
A thought struck me!

Hey,

The microwave works too,

A thought never thought,

Then it went,

The cold, causing stomach aches water,

Heated to a tepid,

But good enough,

For now.

Sustainable

Sustainable means,

Attainable,

Come on,

It’s not so far away,

Close the tap when you brush your teeth,

Use palm-oil free soap and shampoo,

Take one shower less each week,

It will save water and your wallet,

Perhaps,

Even your hair!

 

Little tricks and tiny tips,

Will save money,

And trees,

Waters,

And animals too,

It’s not that hard!

 

Eco brands,

For cosmetics,

Pet supplies,

Clothing,

Food and personal stuff,

Brands like Patagonia,

Nike, Lululemon and Armour Vert,

Help your skin breath in style,

Brands like Lush,

The Body Shop, Burt’s Bees, Green Beaver  and Rocky Mountain Soap,

Will hep you lather up naturally,

See?!

Easy as pie.

If there’s pie.

Something Organic and wild.

Confusion

Have you ever been lost,

In this gigantic muddle,

Of what once was,

Literate thoughts?

That’s confusion,

Here to delude,

A straight-forward plan,

Now,

Where’s does this thing go?

Straight paths,

Suddenly veer off,

Into a wide world of craziness,

Confusion,

Here to confuse and perform the Confundus charm.

 

Confusion has been used,

By J.K Rowling as the Confundus charm,

That goes something like this:

Confundo! 

*Do not try this at home*

This will never work…

 

The End

The end is near,

Gone are the days of past memories,

Built up in  metal lockers and messy binders,

Summer’s heat has already arrived,

Saluting the end as it waves past,

No more walking the same ways,

To and from,

Back and forth,

It’s slipping,

And I don’t feel sad,

For I know,

That the moments count more,

So yes,

The end is nearing,

And a beginning starts,

A gigantic change,

But not impossible.
