Crimson’s Creative Challenge #45

A drop of ink dirties a glass of water, but not an ocean. And for some people, their human hearts are oceans which are not tainted easily. But even if a human heart can sail an oil tanker like an ocean does, there is still a limit.

He learns the hard way that the limit is during a low tide.

That is when what is thrown out during the day comes back to haunt him at night, when the ocean washes the trash back. What is washed back is even worse – rotten and smelly after being out in the sea for too long.

If there is such a thing call karma, then it must be the rubbish being washed back.

Kira’s Sunday Scribbles

20190914_195055

He lost his head.

He was very much confused when the people around him said he had not grown his head yet. Was his head not well matured enough? How would one grow a head then?

For years, he searched for an appropriate head. But there were so many to choose from! As he was growing up, he saw heads of all shapes and sizes – round, square, triangle, big, small and distorted. Then, when he started working, he saw even more heads – wooden, metallic, beautiful and rotten.

And he tried them all on. Even then, not a single head seem to fit him properly. After a while, he stopped trying to find an appropriate head and just put on one that was always readily and conveniently available, no matter how uncomfortable that head felt at times.

He still mulled over the question from time to time – how would one grow a head?

Eventually, he looked down at his own head which he put aside years ago. He decided to put it back on. Strangely, it suited him despite years of disuse; he still found it the most comfortable.

He decided to keep it.

Bubbles of Happiness

He watched as his elder niece blew the bubbles and the younger one tried to catch it in her palm. All her efforts were in vain; every soap bubble burst as soon as it touched her little palm. Yet, they were laughing and shrieking as they took turns to blow bubbles and catch it.

Bubbles of happiness, they called that little game.

They certainly looked happy but they did not seem to have caught much happiness.

“Did you girls have fun?” he called out to them.

“Yes!” both his nieces echoed.

He smiled indulgently. “I think you failed to catch any bubbles of happiness, girls,” he teased.

The younger niece stopped and looked at her sister in disbelief, while his older niece just stared blankly at him.

“Weren’t you watching? We caught the bubbles! They burst and the happiness went into us!”

His eyes widened. Bubbles of happiness indeed!

She had always been nimble since she was a child, climbing everywhere before she could walk properly. Her mother used to call her “my little monkey”.

And all her jobs had got something to do with heights; window cleaning, billboard painting, power lines installing and the likes.

But bounded to a wheelchair now, she was a shell of her former self, unable to even climb the stairs.

“Look how high I’m going, Gramma!” the little girl laughed.

Running to the other side, her granddaughter went down the slide fearlessly.

She smiled. “Climb, my little monkey, climb!”

Her legacy lived on.

How beautiful it is, to pass on one’s skill to the next generation. If there is only one regret I must name, it will be my clumsiness to learn my mother and paternal grandmother’s culinary skills. My mother had inherited my paternal and maternal grandmothers’ recipes of traditional dishes. While I learnt to make the simplest and most basic dishes, I lacked the aptitude to learn the more complicated dishes.

How much of history is lost if I can never learn them…
