OctPoWriMo 2015 Day 18:    prompt:  Things aren’t always what they seem

.
Today’s prompt we’re going to add a little mystery to our lives. Look around you, whether it’s a physical object or people in general in your life. Chose something or someone and give them a double life. Ex: I just book a graphic novel where the woman is a turn of the century housewife during the day, but at night she’s an assassin. Maybe your tomato has the secret life of an apple. Never know what’s happening in the crisper when the drawer is closed. Get creative and have fun with it.

My Response to the prompt:

Things aren’t always what they seem

illusions that come with mysteries
facts that have a spin to them
unseen to the human eye.
.

Cherokee tribe of Native Americans, said

“Don’t judge a man until you have walked a mile in his shoes”

.
and Harper Lee. To Kill a Mockingbird :

.
“You never really know a man

until you understand things from his point of view,

until you climb into his skin and walk around in it.”

.
Think of the quote before being the critic:
walk in their shoes.
A grieving person may still be sad
even when laughing and sharing a joke.
A widower spoke and said, “Don’t tell
me you know how I feel unless you’ve
lost a spouse”.
.
An only child never knows the bliss
of a sibling who had the same parents
at the same time.of the parents life.
(My brother and I are “only children”
~ six years apart)
.
One person’s comfort food,
may seem odd or inedible to another…
have you tried fried insects, jelly fish,
pickled octopus, made rose hip jam or
dandelion greens in your smoothie ?

Things aren’t always what they seem
illusions that come with mysteries
facts that have a spin to them
unseen to the human eye.
