Today’s Assignment: publish a post for your dream reader, and include a new-to-you element in it.
When I received this prompt I thought well my dream reader wouldn’t be any one type of a person in particular. I ideally hope that what I pen resonates with a variety of people. Please let me elaborate perhaps one of you reading right now may identify with what I am trying to say. These would probably be my dream readers.
Like minded Blogsphere-ites!
Anyone who understands what I write, who enjoys subtle humour, feels indulgent enough to let me have my say and contributes to my post with their feedbacks and comments.
Of late I have been fortunate enough to visit and read posts from such a wide variety of writers. Some are hilarious, some spiritual, some clever, some kind and some superiorly talented.
There have been days when I have started my day by randomly picking a post to read which would carry a message so perfectly tuned to my thoughts that day that it’s almost spooky!
Then there have been times when I read something and think Gosh why didn’t I think of that. I should have written that myself!
I sincerely hope that my posts one day reach out similarly too. I am certainly not looking to solve world issues or give advice to anyone. I do not consider myself accomplished enough to fill such tall orders. I do however hope that I can share a thought, spread a smile or maybe two!
In a utopian world my blog followers should consist largely of one of the two below –
Fatherly figures – Someone who like my Dad follows this blog with an avid interest. Reads each and every post, enjoys all that is written infact prints out a copy to share with his buddies and is totally biased in my favour with their comments! 🙂 I hope to have many such followers.
Motherly figures – Someone who like my Mom celebrates each post published like it were a muti book deal from Penguin! Someone who will care deeply enough to provide suggestions for improvements.
Forgive me I digress! Now getting back to the challenge specified they mentioned to include a new to me angle in this post for my dream reader.
I know that so far I haven’t exactly conformed to the challenge specified per se. So here goes, my post for the day. I hope my dream readers will enjoy reading this.
My apologies in advance for the tangent I am about to take……these words have been milling around in my mind for some time, please permit me to put them down.
(special thanks to SHAGGY for the inspiration :-))
STRENGTH OF A WOMAN
She gives you life,
Get on her wrong side and she can take it to.
She puts a smile upon your face,
But if you cause a frown on hers it’s really not that great
She may be terrified of a mouse,
But won’t flinch when she has hot wax poured on her legs.
She can single handed either make or break your day!
When the odds are against her she has been known to stand up to any challenge
She needs care, she needs love, she needs attention and praise.
She nurtures, her love is everything, she is the hidden force behind the power.
She can be demanding, she can be evil, she can bring down kingdoms.
She can bear immeasurable pain, she has hidden within her untold strengths.
Win her heart and she is yours forever.
But break her heart and the phoenix that rises from those ashes ……..
Odes and Verses have been dedicated to the complex workings of the feminine.
But the simplest one would be to bear in mind
Never underestimate THE STRENGTH OF A WOMAN.
