Random 16: Optional

Childhood game.

Agree and disagree.

Disagree and agree

was simple and fun.

Being in adulthood

for a long period.

Things are twisted.

Minds get rigid.

Ideas are fixed.

Windows are

tightly shut.

Agree – disagree

is not fun any more.

Friends mock others.

For being liberal.

For being kind to others.

Being rationale.

And most of all

for opposing

the fake image

of nationalism.

Staying and suffering

was optional.

The weight of

fake friendships was

heavy.

She chose freedom.

Now question is

Will she be happy?

Be kind

Rose gardens

I love spring anywhere, but if I could choose I would always greet it in a garden.~ Ruth Stout

God made a beauteous garden
With lovely flowers strown,
But one straight, narrow pathway
That was not overgrown.
And to this beauteous garden
He brought mankind to live,
And said “To you, my children,
These lovely flowers I give.
Prune ye my vines and fig trees,
With care my flowers tend,
But keep the pathway open
Your home is at the end.

Robert Frost (God’s Garden)

A gardener is like a prophet looking out on a barren land and saying, ‘I see corn on that hill, and beans beneath the grove, and lavender in the field, and over there some roses by the brick wall.’ Don’t you think that’s what a good friend should be like? A truly good friend is one who can look at our bare lives and see the fruit of what will one day come from deep inside us.~ Craig Froman (Of Secrets, Spiders & and the End of the World)

Be soft, don’t let the world make you hard. Be gentle, don’t let the people make you difficult. Be kind, don’t let the realities of life steal your sweetness and make you heartless~ Nurudeen Ushawu

We visited Madrid in may 2019 and stayed there was 5 days. During the visit I spent some quality time in the rose gardens. Yes Madrid has 2 rose gardens and have more than 4000 roses.. Both are well maintained and can be reached using public transport. The public transport is extremely efficient at least in my opinion.
