Daily Prompt: Burnt.Remember yesterday, when your home was on fire and you got to save five items? That means you left a lot of stuff behind. What are the things you wish you could have taken, but had to leave behind?
This prompt asks me if I remember yesterday? Yesterday?! How could I forget, forget watching my humble abode ablaze and turning to ashes.The place which is now a mere rubble. *sniff *
Alright,alright! Chucking the melodrama aside now.
I wish I’d done that! That’s the first thing that pops into mind after any crisis strikes. How could I have done things differently.What are the things that I wish I’d taken with me,that were unfortunately left behind?
Those would have to be : Food, my library collection, Guitar, TV(for selling), furniture etc, etc ,etc. This could go on and on.But what I wish I could have done was to — extinguish the source of fire.No regrets then.No more what ifs.
Hypothetically speaking what’s been done is done,no point in regretting now.
What I should be doing though is get going. Get going, to do all the hypothetical sorting/cleaning the mess out or whatever is left of a charred house.
This place reeks,did I mention that?
