Surprise, surprise. I know I’m early (it’s not Sunday yet, for the uninformed). But I blogged today not to write a poem, story or parody, but to give out a challenge. Now I don’t have any idea if this challenge has been ever created before by anybody, so I like to think I created it. My sincere apologies to the original creator in case they exist.
Anyway, enough talk. Down to business. The ‘Word of the Day Challenge’ is simple- the nominated bloggers have to post a new word every day for 30 days on their blog which is seldom used or few people know the meaning of. But there’s a catch- it’s in the rules down below. Before I acquaint you with the rules of the challenge, let’s look at the list of the bloggers I’ve decided to nominate-
Hey guys! Okay, okay, don’t threaten to beat me with a brickbat now. I know I’m a week and a day late, and I sincerely apologize for that. I had my final exams, I got freedom on Saturday from them, I had gone out on a day-long trip yesterday and that’s why I couldn’t post in so long. But hey, I’m back now and I will be regular (when my exams aren’t going on).
So this one’s not actually deep-thought like the others, but it’s a poem with a message conveyed in a humorous form (at least, it’s intended to be that). I hope you guys like it. Here goes-
Two lovers, separated by evil Fate
Who spins their destinies with black and white threads,
She’s determined to keep the twains apart
Fate, the witch with the stony heart.
But Love triumphs over Fate, ties some threads together
Intertwining the lovers’ destinies forever,
These knots then become dusk and dawn
A rendezvous for the couple is drawn.
Hallo, freunde! I know it’s been a while since I wrote a parody, so this week I’m doing just that. Here’s a pubic take on Robert Burns’ famous poem ‘A red, red rose’. If you haven’t read the original poem, you can read it here- https://www.poetryfoundation.org/poems-and-poets/poems/detail/43812
