Tea for Two and a Piece of Me

A first (and thankfully so), this post is in response to a creative prompt by blogger and writer Preeti Shenoy, who's third book 'Tea for Two and a Piece of Cake' released a few days ago. And let me tell you, the book sure looks delicious.
In this last prompt of her, the author asks some random questions to get to know us, the readers, a little better. So here it is,

Horn NOT OK Please

I guess the title is pretty straightforward and you know what this post is all about. What you don't know, is that I can see the future. You also don't know that I absolutely love those piping hot, straight out of the sugar syrup, crunchy jalebis. Now, before you say anything like, 'what the heck is this', I must tell you that the Mount Everest is 8848 meters at its highest peak.

An evening dialogue...with me.

Spoiler Alert: If you are one of those people who intentionally skip the trailer, so that their movie going experience isn't  ruined, and If you're planning to read 'I too had a love Story' by Ravinder Singh, I'd advice you to not read further. 

The sun was about to set. I sat there for a little while, quietly. A few minutes later, calls for the evening prayer started coming from the nearby mosques. I stood up from my bed, washed my hands and face and walked out of the house. I strode in silence, purposefully towards the mosque, passing through the hustle bustle of the market en route. After the prayers I walked back in the same fashion, blocking everything else around me.

Of Hope and Despair.

I was standing | at the horizon,
                        I saw a spark | in the sea,
                                               a shimmer broke | on my face,
                                                                           gleaming rays touched and stayed |
it was daybreak.
