December-Vibes-Poetry Contest

Ah. Hey! So I was nominated for this by Khushi and Kunjal aka the Duo Disseminators who are also the creators. Either way, I looked at this and I immediately knew it would be fun. So it said there can be up to two entries so I am making two cause there are so many diff things about December, so many diff ways to look at it. Cold and sad, happy and cheerful, so many. Also mysterious, but I couldn’t portray that in a poem, even though I tried.

  • Thee last date for submission is *** 

One: Warmth Of Love

Cold air dances and leaps around,
Snowflakes place themselves on the ground,
Smiles fill the air with joy and glee,
The warmth of love swims free,
The cold whispers and so does the frost,
But within the smiles, it’s lost.
Trees, green and happy, fill the whole place,
The greenery dancing around with grace,
Happiness leaps about, hiding everywhere,
The scent of cinnamon and ginger filling the air.
The cold shivers, colder than ever,
People cough and catch sickly fevers.
But the cold melts away by the warmth of love,
As happiness dances around like a wild dove.
And however cold it might be,
The smiles murder it as they dance free!

Two: What do you see?

An icy cold, gloomy and forlorn night,
That lacks happiness and light.
Or a shining and glamourous morning,
Where the joy creeps up without warning?
What is December to you?
Is it a yellow glee or a sadness, blue?
Does the cold creep up sneakily,
Are your eyes droopy and tears a sea?
Or are you dancing in the Christmas lights,
Having parties and enjoying the nights?
Is December full of happiness, love and glee?
Or is it full of sadness and curse that nobody sees?
It all matters on how you look at it,
Do you see the starry lights, how the place is lit,
Or do you see the cold gloominess there might be?
The only thing that matters, is what you see!

That’s all! I changed my mind on not putting what do you see for the contest, lol! Anyways. Nominations…

Oof! Ok fine I agree, cereal is cereal, soup is soup!

Something To Save

Hey people! Here is a poem I wrote! Tis about Earth and her beauties and how we are harming her. #SaveEarth?
Anyway! I hope you enjoy reading this! I think it is pretty good!
I gave this in for Naomi’s Something To Save Contest, for fun. Tap here to see the post.
And right now the voting is going on, so if you want to vote- Tap here to see the voting post. The other entries were also pretty good.

Earth is a beautiful place,
It’s one of the planets in space,
Its the best place there could be,
It’s lovely from land to sea.

On the land animals wander,
And people walk and ponder,
From the tallest mountains
To the lowest plains,
Earth is the prettiest place,
A nature filled maze!

In the sea fish dive and leap,
They swim in the deep,
In the depths of the sea,
Coral lies hidden, so pretty!

Dolphins dive in and out,
Whales spurt water from their spout!
Oh Earth is honestly the best,
Our little home, our nest!

But Mother Earth is dying to this day,
She is slowly floating away.

For people like you and me,
Whoever we might be,
Pollute the Earth.

The place of out birth.

Yet, she isn’t gone yet,
Right now, her dying is only a threat.

If we don’t make a change,
Bad things could happen at a great range.
We can save her by doing the simplest things,
To her, life they shall bring!

Short Story Contest

Hello hello hello peeps! Gelina made this contest and it sounded fun! So here I am doing it. I’m not really doing it so I win or bla bla bla…more like just to get a good fun story out of it!!! Oh and btw…for Gelina…I come in the 11-17 category.
So I have been writing something similar to this, which I have not shared on my blog yet, cause I plan to work on it more instead of sharing it as first draft, I wrote this slightly similar to that, with just switching up some stuff and then I added a part from one of the random parts of stories I have shared before and changed it a little!
Ooo and btw. I have 46 followers through WordPress and 3 through mail…close to 50! I can’t wait for 50. Thanks a lot too all the people who follow me :)…I appreciate it!

Adara stared into the pitch black sky. It was a new moon and nothing could be seen, except darkness. Adara looked into the sky, as if hoping for the moon to appear, but it didn’t. Life didn’t always work like that, in fact it never worked like that. She sighed. She closed her eyes and began to focus. She sat calmly, her mind blank. As she sat, a pendant her mom had given her, that sat hanging on her neck, started to gently float into the air. It glowed, then faded, then glowed, then faded, then abruptly stopped.
Adara felt a nudge on her chest as she opened her eyes. It was her dog, Mudd, a little Indian Pariah pup.
“Mudd. You know what this means. We only had till this new moon. Now-” she couldn’t say it. She couldn’t face the truth. “It’s to early Mudd. Way to early.”
Mudd gave a gentle whine and nuzzled Adara’s chest. The two sat in the darkness.
As the night gently reached morning, the sky rejoiced in the sunlight. The sunlight painted the sky in color, orange, purple, pink, yellow and-
“No. No. No!” Adara yelled.
Mudd licked her arm.
“No Mudd, not now. Licks won’t help. This has even more meaning than the new moon. We are running out of time. The world is running out of time. If we don’t do something now then-“
She didn’t say it, she still couldn’t. Sometimes the truth was horrifying.
She hugged Mudd, as they sat watching the sunset.
“We will stop it Mudd, we will.”

YEARS LATER

The world had been devoured in darkness. The air smelt of smoke, of fire and of blood. Creatures covered the lands, spreading misery everywhere they went. It was silent, apart from clanking metal and bloodcurdling screams.
I sat down on the ground a scar bleeding across my face. I cried. It was the end of the world, there was nothing that could save us now. I had fought my best. I fingered the chain that sat on my neck. It was the same beautiful pendant.
“Mudd?” I asked. I got a nudge as a reply.
I looked up a final time, the last.
“Mudd this is it.” I whispered.
But then I saw something. My eyes opened wide, I couldn’t believe it. Far ahead of me was a gem, gimmering white with shining silver moonlight. It was the same as my pendant’s gem.
It looked like it had jumped out of the stories my Mom told me when I was younger.
Once the powerful dragons, united, they forged their magic together in a gem. The Gem Of Hope. Then as time passed, the reign of the dragons ended, the gem disappeared, it hid in the darkest depths of the Earth, never to be seen again. The prophecy says one day, the world will need the gem, the gem shall be held against the sky by a young girl, who is enmagicad by moonlight. Then the gem shall heal the world.
As per legends, the gem carried more magic than anything else. And this magic was all hope, love and trust.
I looked at the shining white gem, and it called to me. It was almost as if it was whispering,
“Adara? Adara. Adara!”
I got up, fists clenched. I grabbed my sword.
I bolted, slashing at monsters, killing them. I flew, ignoring all obstacles. Mudd running by my side. My eyes were fixed on the gem. As I neared the gem my necklace and the gem began to glow in sync.
Then as I approached it I stopped and looked at it.
“It couldn’t be,” I said to myself “It couldn’t be.”
I held the gem up in the sky.
I waited. I closed my eyes. But nothing.
“That who holds the gem, must have hope to be giving hope to others.” my voice said inside my head. I looked at Mudd. He gave me a lick and hopeful puppy eyes. I fingered my pendant.
Then I closed my eyes. I thought of the world, as a better place. I smiled.
Slowly the colors of the world returned, the trees grew wild, flowers of vivid colors. The monsters disappeared as if never there.
“It’s over Mudd.” I said, as magic danced from my fingers, the magic of moonlight.

So firstly. Thank you Betty @TheBoxOfWonder for making this AMAZING contest. As soon as I saw it my brain was like: Ooo this sounds fun, I have to do it!
Secondly let me thank the person who nominated me, Betty @TheBoxOfWonder. No it was not necessary to do all of that cause still the same person but Yes. Ok.
Thirdly, I have to give the person who nominated me a character from a book…so…Betty. Hmm let me think. She is smart, kind, funny but yet her blogging voice seems powerful. I kind of think about her as a Hermione Granger!
Fourthly lettuce answer the questions Betty gave.

Za lettuce speaks, Za I am za lettuce! Za no za no, I is not cabbage! ZA HOW DID YOU THINK I IZ CABBAGE? I IZ LETTUCE, I IZ LETTUCE. Yez, yes, I will answerz questionz!

Dude. I said let us not lettuce.

Anyways here we go. I apologize for that CRAPPY lettuce joke but I couldn’t help it.

1- Do you like to read? Which book made you like reading?
Ofcourse I like to read. What kind of question is that? Well I’ve always liked to read, since I was…well idk exactly what age. I don’t recall I particular book that made me like reading though.

2-Which book are you currently reading?
I am currently reading A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness.

3-Which book would you recommend non book-lovers to read?
I do not know, but maybe something on the comic side to start them of with reading? Like Asterix and Obelix? Ok but I really don’t know.

4-Which book character describes you the best?
See now that is a hard q. Someone would obviously say the character they WANT to describe them, not the one that does. Now lets see, I’m a tomboy who loves sports, I’d call myself a ambivert, I love to write and read, I’m a total dog lover, love helping animals, I’m pretty adventurous, love nature. There are so many things I can say about myself. But ofcourse, I as anyone would would still pick the character they WANT to be like, not the one they are like. How about you tell me in the comments what character you think describes me…that would be fun…and oo please say from which book cause my tbr(to be read) might end up growing!
Wow that turned a little- Well a little. Oh come on!

5- Which kind of book do you hate a lot and why(please don’t spread hate!)
I don’t hate any book in particular. I mean yes, sure there are books I never enjoyed, never found fun to read, never came up to my taste. But I don’t hate them, they just aren’t my type, they are still good books.

Now we come to the main part. The story.

It was a dark night, gray clouds covered the sky, they shadowed the moonlight and the starlight, infact they shadowed all light. But not only the light was shadowed, so was my magic. I sat outside, hoping for but one ray of moonlight to touch my skin, hoping for but one ray of moonlight to save me from death. I gasped and winced, longing for fresh air, longing to be free from the pain, a deep toxic cut bled across my chest, hurting more than anything could hurt, sinking poison into my heart. The poison wouldn’t kill me, it would kill my soul, I would still be there, just a different me, one dark, one evil, one possesed.

Ok I’m not sure about this piece, but after thinking, going over it, re-doing it and all, I think this is around the best I could do for a good 5-line story. I mean ofcourse it can’t just end there, I’m sure more would come. Tis kinda mysterious…what happens? Even I want to know and even I don’t even know yet! Welp, a thanks to Betty for creating this challenge again.
Betty I hope you like this story…but not only her…I hope each and every one of you readers like it too!


And here sisters and brothers, I swoop into smokey, misty land and leave this scene completely.

So here is mine. I like it a lot. I hope you do as well.

I was walking home from school. I wore dark blue jeans and a black hoodie. I walked silently, measuring all my thoughts in my head and observing every single detail, from the green plants to ants on the ground. It was like any other day, but it wasn’t.
I was just around the corner from my house when I noticed a strange mannequin at the window of a large house. It looked like a person. I stared at it, observing it, noting its details down in my head. As I looked into its eyes, I felt like it was staring back at me.
I continued walking, as I reached my house I could hear my dog barking inside.
I went in and was welcomed with happy whining and licks. “Hey. I missed you too,” I said, sitting down on the couch. The rest of my day went by, normally, nothing different.

The next day while walking back from school I saw the same house, as I studied it from head to toe, I saw a person’s name on the gate. The name was scribbled and I could barely read it. Anyway I was more interested in the mannequin sitting on the window. Today it held a sign in its hands. I walked closer to the house, straining to read it.
Help. Me.” The sign said in beautiful cursive. I stared. The mannequin stared back, or at least it looked like it did. Then it moved, or I thought it moved. I was definitely imagining things.
Today I wasn’t headed straight home, I was going to pick up my 7 year old little brother from daycare, he was probably waiting so I kept walking. Sure…you’d think any 13 year old kid would be freaked out, but I wasn’t any 13 year old kid and I wasn’t freaked out. I was interested, I wanted to know more.
After picking my brother up I walked home with him. Instead of going the normal way, I took a long turn to see more of the mannequin. “Where are you going. I want to go home. I’m hungry.” He grumbled, pulling at my sleeve. “Wait.” I murmured. I took a quick peek at the mannequin, it now held a sign saying
Please. Please. Please.
Were the two signs related? I didn’t know, but I wanted to know.
I turned, walking home. Once we were home my brother asked me. “What were you looking at?”
I didn’t answer. It was none of his business.

The next day after school, I obviously went to see the mannequin again. I watched the mannequin, its eyes looked sad and pleading, though the first day I saw the mannequin the eyes were strong and fierce. As I watched, a large grey car pulled up the driveway and parked outside the house. A tall man in dark clothes walked into the house, he didn’t notice me. The man was weird; it felt as if he were carrying a cloud of shadow along with him. I glanced back at the window. The mannequin was gone.

Eleven…thats a lot of questions…so lets start.

1. What book had the most significant impact on your life?
Well, I love and enjoy reading books, but I wouldn’t say any particular book has made a significant impact.

2. If you could chose between writing poems and writing stories which one will you chose?
I really, absoulutely wouldn’t be able to chose.

3. What is your favorite thing about yourself?
My favourite thing about myself? Ok I’m going to have to think about that, Probably just that I’m me?
How much I would do for dogs? How well I write? The fact that I’m fairly good at swimming?
I don’t know what my favourite thing about myself is.

4. If you could choose to be any animal, what animal would you choose to be?
A fox. Well the first questions I’ve straight up answered, you give hard questions Jan😂

5. If you could tell your younger self any one thing, what would it be?
“Dont waste time begging your parents for a dog and then crying over it. You are getting a dog when you are 11. By the way her name is Janu. Also in your maths test you forgot to divide the answer by 7x and add 20.

6. If you didn’t have to work to make money, how would you spend your time? What would you do, or create?
...I’m in eleven year old kid…but lets say if I was an adult who had to work for money and who…
I would manage a dog shelter, help all the dogs that are homeless on the street, take them in, feed them, tend to wounds and then look for forever homes.
I would write more often, maybe actually FINISH one of the stories I’ve started(I mean long chapter ones).

7. What superpower would you choose if you were given the ability to develop one superpower?
The power of eating without gaining weight or feeling full.
Invisibility or flying. I know both of those are really simple typical superpowers, but they are cool. Sometimes you feel like growing wings and swooping up into the sky. Sometimes you want to dissapear, not be seen.

8. Who is your most favourite author if you have one?
I dont really have a favourite author.

9. Describe success in your own words.
Success is having a dog after begging for one for four whole years.
Success is when you and the dogs people around you are happy with something you have done.


10. How do you think people would react if the moon disappeared?
Aw come on why the moon, I love the moon.
People would, 1- Panic, 2- Panic, 3-Panic, 4- Panic, 6- Panic, 7- Panic, 8- Panic, 9- Panic, 10-Get over it and forget it happened.

11. If you can be one fictional character who will you chose to be?
