Daily Prompt : Rain

Daily Prompt: Singin’ in the Rain

Safe inside, toasty warm, while water pitter-patters on the roof… describe your perfect, rainy afternoon.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us RAIN.

The Journey

A long winding road, lush greenery on the sides, flowing mist and soulful music playing. We were traveling with friends to a farmhouse. Laughter is everywhere. I open the windows and the wind is in my hair.

Someone spots a waterfall on the way, as if the rain wasn’t enough, we go towards it hungry for more. The water is cool and refreshing.

A little stop on the way for food and everyone is full and happy. We make a move from there and soon we reach our destination.

The journey is more important than the destination.

Sunshine In The Rain

It’s a gloomy day, I put on my favorite dress and perfume. We have decided to meet in the coffee house today. I look outside the window, the clouds are big and gray, foretelling rain. I quickly pick the umbrella and head out for the coffee house.  It’s a swank place opened recently, lovely furniture and decent coffee.

Lots of tables are empty when I get there and I go for the one near the wide french window. Soon it begins to rain heavily and people start pouring in. The smell of freshly brewed coffee fills the place. I look at the watch, he should be here anytime now. The rain drops on the window makes it difficult to see outside.  All I can see is colors but there is no sight of him. What is talking him so long? Just then the door bell tinkles and it’s him at the door. My sunshine in the rain. It warms up the place and my heart.

RSVP : It’s A Party

Daily Prompt: RSVP

Plan the ultimate celebration for the person you’re closest to, and tell us about it. Where is it? Who’s there? What’s served? What happens?

Its a party! What are we celebrating? Do we need a reason to celebrate? Its a weekend and my friends are free so we are having a get together.

There are about 20 people gathered in my small apartment. Its dark outside so we have put on the soft yellow lights, the special Diwali rustic lamp I like is lit in my room.

Parties should be fun and so we decided to have a theme to it. Today’s theme is Wine and Jazz. We play the music and people get their own wine.

Friends start arriving one by one, each carrying a bottle of wine. The music is playing, its not really jazz just some lounge classics but people hardly notice that as they are busy talking! Everyone is scattered around in small groups.

There is finger food on the table and soon it is all gone so we bring out the delightful pineapple cheese cherry served on ice and its an instant hit. Food that tastes as good as it looks! The wine is poured, glasses clink and there is a happy cheer in the air.

The music changes to house and people get up to dance, some are content just tapping their feet. Then more food is served, chicken starters and biryani. Some of us are getting lazy and sleepy especially the ones who went to work that day. The volume is turned down low and Hindi film music is playing. Someone in the room starts singing and others join in. The party goes on…

Its always fun when friends are around.
