These pictures have to do with joy and light. One of these pictures is of Lord Rama and Hanuman’s first meeting as children in Ayodhya in the tv show Sankat Mochan Mahabali Hanumaan. Some of these pictures show the joy of Rama, Sita, and Lakshman being welcomed back to Ayodhya after they spent 14 years of exile in the forest. Other pictures show the joy of the Ayodhya royal family celebrating the births of the children of King/Lord Rama and Queen/Sita Mata, Prince Lakshman and Princess Urmila, Prince Bharat and Princess Mandavi, and King Shatrughna and Queen Shrutakirti. One picture even shows Hanuman burning Lanka.

My Haikus with the words Dwindle & Ripple

This is my fourth entry for Ronovan Writes Haiku Challenge. The two words for this week are dwindle and ripple. All four of my haikus are about people and things that happen in the Hindu epic of Mahabharata.  Here’s a link to Ronovan’s blog https://ronovanwrites.com/2020/07/06/weekly-haiku-poetry-prompt-challenge-dwindle-ripple/

The Guidelines are simple.

  1. Take the two words and write a Haiku. I use Haiku in English as my style, which is 5 syllables for the first line, 7 for the second, and 5 for the third, but you can use what you like. The link above has links within it to articles about how to write Haibun, Tanka, and even a new form I created called Freku. You can also do the 3/5/3 form if you likeinstead of the 5/7/5 that I usually use. Write, share, and have fun. For syllable help visit HowManySyllables.com. (You would be surprised at how many syllables some words actually have.)
  2. The two words can be used as you like. Words have different definitions and you can use the definitions you like. You can even use a synonym word as long as it does not change the meaning. Go to Thesaurus.com for Synonym help.
  3. Use the Tag of Ronovan Writes Haiku Challenge. This will help me find you in case you forget to ping back or leave your URL in the comments.
  4. Copy the link of your finished haiku URL  in a comment so we can all go and visit your site to see what you have done. You can do a ping back. What’s a ping back? Put the URL link in the address bar of this post, if you like, within your post. Your inclusion of the link encourages others to try the challenges out, be creative, and join a community to find friends and more followers (hopefully). I honestly gain nothing by more people visiting the post. I don’t have ads running I get paid for by your visit. Click HERE for a detailed article on Ping Backs.
  5. You may copy one of the badges/images appearing in this post below or above and place it on your site if you wish, most normally use it within their post. I am not saying you need to, but if you would like to do so then go ahead. It is simply my way of saying thank you for participating. I sometimes make custom images for the week, if time and health permits.
  6. The Challenge currently BEGINS at 8 AM EST (New York City time) on Mondays. And a DEADLINE is Noon EST (New York City time) on the Sunday following the Challenge Post release.


My Haikus

1.) The Pandava Bhima

dwindled the hundred Kauravas

until none were left.

2.) The Pandavas won the

war but all their heirs dwindled

until one was left.

3.) The whole time Prince Dushshana

tried to disrobe Draupadi her

sari was rippling .

4.) Draupadi’s hair rippled

as she waited to wash her

hair with Prince Dushshan’s blood.

My English Better & Best Song

“The Best” by Tina Turner

I call you when I need you, my heart’s on fire
You come to me, come to me wild and wired
Oh, you come to me, give me everything I need
Give me a life time of promises and a world of dreams
Speak the language of love like you know what it means
Mm, and it can’t be wrong, take my heart and make it strong, babe
You’re simply the best, better than all the rest
Better than anyone, anyone I ever met
I’m stuck on your heart, I hang on every word you say
Tear us apart, baby, I would rather be dead
In your heart I see the start of every night and every day
In your eyes I get lost, I get washed away
Just as long here in your arms I could be in no better place
You’re simply the best, better than all the rest
Better than anyone, anyone I ever met
I’m stuck on your heart, I hang on every word you say
Tear us apart, baby, I would rather be dead
Each time you leave me I start losing control
You’re walking away with my heart and my soul
I can feel you even when I’m alone
Oh, baby, don’t let go
You’re the best, better than all the rest
Better than anyone, anyone I ever met
I’m stuck on your heart
I hang on every word you say
Tear us apart
Baby I would rather be dead
Oh you’re the best

“The Best” is a song recorded by Bonnie Tyler for her seventh studio album, Hide Your Heart (1988). In the following year, the song was covered by Tina Turner for her seventh studio album, Foreign Affair. The song was written by Mike Chapman and Holly Knight. Foreign Affair is the seventh solo studio album by Tina Turner, released on Capitol Records in 1989. It was Turner’s third album release after her massively successful global comeback five years earlier, and although the album was not a major success in Turner’s native United States, it was a huge international success in Europe. The album reached number one on the UK Albums Chart, her first number one album there. The album includes the single “The Best” which has gone on to become one of Turner’s best-known songs.
