What:Week Thirty Two of My Fifty Two Weeks Journey with the Letter ” W”

Today I cheated.  What?  I cheated?  Well, sort off.  I normally do not give much thought to what I will write for my weekly Wednesday post for my journey with the letter “W” till I sit down to write.  Today while driving to the office in the morning, a bumper sticker on the car in front of me caught my attention.  I would have forgotten about what it said after some time but the car kept me company for a good twenty minutes in the bumper to bumper morning traffic.  By the time I got to my office, the line stuck to my brain as if engraved.  It read, “What Do You Have To Lose”.

I am not sure what was the context of that particular bumper sticker for the owner of the car.  I also have no intention of driving you crazy with the laundry list of what I have to lose.  What was driving me crazy was thinking of the context of that quote. What do I have to lose if I bungee jump or skydive or what do I have to lose if I decide to quit my job and try to take up writing as a profession?  To all of that I have some or other answer of what I do have to lose.  For next ten hours or so in the office I did not give much thought to it, but driving back home in the evening it started bothering me again.  I came to a conclusion, I think rather for my own sanity than anything conclusive, that I will never know what do I have to lose unless I try even.

That brings me to cheating.  I did not have much time to ponder about what word starting with “W” I was going to pick  for my poem today.  It was handed to me on a platter.  The first word of that bumper sticker.  WHAT else?  So off I go to write my poem starting with the word ” What” for week thirty two of my fifty two weeks of journey with the letter “W”.

WEEKEND

Weekend! the thought of the coming weekend
Energized me with sweet dreams of sleeping late
Enticing mornings of leisurely curling up in bed
Killing that incessant alarm with a slap of my hand
Enjoying my morning cup of tea in bed
Naturally all good things must come to an end
Dreaded  reminder of the “Honey Do” list from dearest

Weekend day dreaming came to an abrupt crashing end


Week 14 of My Fifty Two Weeks Journey with “W”
