Justin took a deep breath and inhaled the fresh air as he walked down the deserted country path, no one in sight for miles around.

Walking on the dirt road, lined by trees was a stark change in comparison to the madness of the concrete and pollution of the city, he had spent every waking second of his life in.

Everyone had called him crazy for his decision to quit his plum job at a city Bank and settle down in the countryside to do the one thing he loved -write with no interruption.

He was so glad he had listened to his heart and taken the plunge, for who knew what the future held unless you took a chance.

The loud honking of the snarling traffic woke Justin and he sprung up from his bed cursing, "Another darn dream!"


  1. Too bad it was only a dream.May be he should make that move soon. :)Good work!

    1. Hi Shail, thanks for visiting. I agree he should make the move. Most of us keep on wanting to do something but are wary of taking the plunge. Wrote this keeping that in mind. :-)

  2. Aww, how I often have the same dream! Nice.

    1. Thank you so much Sheila. I too do have this dream off and on :)

    1. Hi Anita, I agree we must follow our dreams but sometimes bills and responsibilities over shadow them and its hard to break out... But yes we must keep on trying :-) :-) :-)

Congratulations on completing a decade at work!!!

I had one of my ex-project managers complete a decade of service at work so wrote the below poem to congratulate him on this momentous occasion.

Heartiest congratulations! A decade's time for a big celebration!
Ten illustrious years, For your glorious career we all cheer!
A decade of service, Your wealth of experience- priceless.
Countless challenges triumphed, Your boundless energy has everyone pumped.
Your inclusive leadership style, Makes everyone feel worthwhile.
Empowering us to excel, And chart paths novel.
An action oriented leader, Who is more than a manager.
A mentor and motivator, Whom to emulate we aspire.
Working with you has been truly inspiring and awesome, Best wishes for many more magnificent years to come!

Want to express gratitude to your doctor for everything he/she has done for you and are at a loss of words? Why not use instant poet's poem below to express your thanks?

Words are too small to express my gratitude, For you have you as my doctor I feel blessed with eternal beatitude.

  150 calories in a plain bun  A spoon/  cube of butter only another 100  Making a normal one 250 cal  An irresistible slice of cheese ap…
