If I were…

I picked this tag from Preeti for two reasons. I am hard pressed for time today and the prompt at NaBloPoMo was not something I fancied. It is true I could have wracked my brain to come up with something original but am saving that for other days when I have to. 🙂

If I were a month, i’d have to be January looking back on the past and looking forward to the future.

If I were a day of the week, I’d love to be Friday bringing with it the promise of rest and relaxation.

If I were a time of day, I’d be dawn bringing light to a darkened world.

If I were a season, I’d be Spring bringing promise of life and renewal.

If I were a planet, I’d be earth, blue and beautiful.

If I were a sea animal, I’d a dolphin playful and friendly.

If I were a direction, I’d be east harbinger of light.

If I were a piece of furniture, I’d be a rocking chair.

If I were a liquid, I’d be chilled water from an earthern pot

If I were a tree, I’d be a banyan, rooted.

If I were a tool, I’d be a nail keeping things in place.

If I were an element, I’d be earth. Solid and reassuring.

If I were a gemstone, I’d be a ruby, deep and sparkly.

If I were a musical instrument, I’d be the notes from a flute carrying where the wind takes me.

If I were a color, I’d be lilac, bold and beautiful.

If I were a emotion, I’d be overwhelming happiness.

If I were a fruit, I’d be a sweet mango.

If I were a sound, I’d be wind chime swaying with the wind.

If I were a car, I’d be the VW Beetle, tiny and impossible to miss.

If I were food, I’d be mac and cheese, creamy and comforting.

If I were a taste, I’d be spicy leaving a mark.

If I were a scent, I’d be saffron lingering on.

If I were a pair of shoes, I’d be a pair of sneakers, comfortable and used everywhere.

If I were a bird, I’d be a swan pure white and graceful.

And If I were to tag people I will tag whoever wants to do this!

  1. Absolutely beautiful.. agree with Akay on the dawn part and the emotion too – can only picture you in your ear to ear infectious smile 🙂 Food- i somehow can only associate you and rasam as comforting.. mac n cheese is a far cry – dont’ u think ?

    1. Agree on the food part, yes for rasam and chips, comfort and indulgence or may be thayir saatham (ah… that’s probably me 🙂 ), but yes, mac n cheese is a far cry.
