Disagree – Daily Prompt

1h1010

You said yes, I said no
I’m pushing, you’re pulling
Heave-ho, heave-ho, heave-ho
I like it hot, you like it cold
I behold and was always cold
Somehow I didn’t care about that cat’s meow
You’re a manager and I’m just a hausfrau
Have you gone out of your mind?
Smoke banana peels until you go blind
The walls have ears and there are hands on the clock
I used to be punk and your hair was once a Mohawk
Are we still friends and how else do we differ?
Things are not always as they appear
And so we carry on being friends!

brats-on-grill-party

Our neighbours were having a grill party and we were invited. We brought some salad and some meat and sausages to grill, plus a nice bottle of wine. Other neighbours were there, too. I was cornered by Paul and Kim in one corner, talking about how our lives were intertwined and the science of love. They got carried away, sort of like evangelical people as advertised on television. They rambled on their teaching on love. For them, love has different meanings for dissimilar people and in diverse conditions. Love was sacred and we shouldn’t take it for granted. I just nodded and from time to time made some noise of agreement or disagreement or to say that I was still with them. Until some time that I found some excuse to go and mingle with other neighbours.

Disappointment – Pantoum

The pantoum consists of a series of quatrains rhyming ABAB in which the second and fourth lines of a quatrain recur as the first and third lines in the succeeding quatrain; each quatrain introduces a new second rhyme as BCBC, CDCD. The first line of the series recurs as the last line of the closing quatrain, and third line of the poem recurs as the second line of the closing quatrain, rhyming ZAZA.

The design is simple:

Line 1
Line 2
Line 3
Line 4

Line 5 (repeat of line 2)
Line 6
Line 7 (repeat of line 4)
Line 8

Continue with as many stanzas as you wish, but the ending stanzathen repeats the second and fourth lines of the previous stanza (as its first and third lines), and also repeats the third line of the first stanza, as its second line, and the first line of the first stanza as its fourth. So the first line of the poem is also the last.

Last stanza:

Line 2 of previous stanza
Line 3 of first stanza
Line 4 of previous stanza
Line 1 of first stanza

When the food came and it wasn’t tasty
When I like that dress but it was too big
When I said something and you didn’t agree
When I love that song but you didn’t dig

When I like that dress but it was too big
I wanted to go for a walk but it rained
When I love that song but you didn’t dig
I wanted to do that but you were drained

I wanted to go for a walk but it rained
I wanted to skype you but you weren’t there
I wanted to do that but you were drained
That one day you’d leave me and I’m scared

I wanted to skype you but you weren’t there
When I said something and you didn’t agree
That one day you’d leave me and I’m scared
When the food came and it wasn’t tasty

#SoCS Nov. 21/15 “to/too/two”

To belong to something or someone, one should take part, too. One plus one is two. Two for the price of one. To infinity and beyond….. Sorry for rumbling on, just trying to write loudly as I think, does it make sense? Anyway, here goes, promise!

Hello everyone. Hope you’re all having a lovely Saturday. Here in Bavaria – it’s freezing! I guess winter is here. We can feel it in the air. It’s going to snow tomorrow, forecast says. One, winter tyres have replaced summer tyres, checked. Two, winter jackets and boots are ready, checked, too. Summer stuff back in the wardrobe. Getting ready for a long winter this year, oh dear!

One plus one is two. Did I tell you that HRH the son is getting married next year with his lovely K? So, we’re not losing a son, we’re gaining a daughter, too. We have two children now, well, big children. Looking forward to the wedding. One wedding, two big receptions, one in the UK and one in India, too.

To infinity and beyond! I’m not talking about the remake of Toy Story… it’s just next year we are also celebrating our 30 years wedding anniversary. Wow, seems like a lifetime or how time flies, too. Where did all the years go? It doesn’t seem that long time ago, when we first met in the lab, now we’re thinking of retiring in 8 years. Really, really grateful for everything – all the experience, the fighting, the tiff, the learning, the sharing and people we have met, places we have been – we can’t count them all.

Cheers for now and enjoy the coming week, too.

Agree to Disagree

Do you have a good friend or close relative with whom you disagree on a major issue (political, personal, cultural)? What’s the issue, and how do you make the relationship work?
