Lady Liberty : Tuesday Photo Challenge – Promise

This week’s Tuesday Photo Challenge prompt from Frank  is  “Promise“.

Liberty

Does she still stand for promise of justice and liberty for all?

I think Ellis Island Immigration Museum below holds more promise for the coming generation to remember  the legacy of immigration that made this country the land of the free and the home of the braves.

Both of these photographs, Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island Immigration Museum, were taken by me during my visit in September of 2017.  I wish I had more time to spend in the museum.

One-Liner Wednesday – Sweet Tooth

This post is in response to Linda’s  #1OneLinerWednesday.

Blame poor tooth, that can’t test, for failing of the tongue.

Do we really have a sweet tooth or a greedy tongue?  It must be basic human nature to blame others for their faults or failings.

Nature’s Call : RonovanWrites Weekly Haiku Poetry Prompt Challenge # 203 Home & Free

This post is in response to Ronovan’s Weekly Haiku Challenge

I know Haiku is supposed to be about nature. So nature’s call should be an appropriate topic for a haiku, specially when the prompt from Ronovan is so appropriate to my recent experience.  No intention to hurt anyone’s sensibility. Proceed any further at your own will.

I am home at last
Free to answer nature’s call 
Boom, exhale, relief

One-Liner Wednesday – Reach Out to Your Friends

This post is in response to Linda’s  #1OneLinerWednesday.

There is no good or bad time to reach out to friends.

The measure of a true friend is that nothing is asked in return.  No self interest or selfishness is involved in true friendship.  So whether you are feeling upbeat or down, reach or to your friends and spread the love and warmth. Many a time I have felt the gloom lifting when I start visiting my blogily. I have not seen any one of them but as I go through their words, a warm feeling starts to fill me over.  I smile (or cry) with them, feel their joy and share their pains.  So I dedicate my One Liner Wednesday  to all my friends, those who I have met and are now separated by geography and to those that I have not met ( but hope to someday) all across the globe but are close to me by their words.  You have made it easier to navigate my journey in this insane world.
