Reena’s Exploration Challenge #153

  1. How do my thoughts get processed into words?
  2. Or do my words spur thoughts?
  3. How do they interact
sometimes words just fail
to sync with overflowing thoughts
of inner turmoil

PROMPT 152

“I am a museum full of art, and a deck full of music, but …..”

You can use this as the first line, or somewhere in your piece.

 

“I am a museum full of art, and a deck full of music, “

but,

but of what use I am
if I can’t inculcate you with a respect for the culture
If I can’t compel you to grasp the message of empathy I want to express
my feelings, emotions, experiences to be touched and felt with your all senses
If I can’t hold your attention
with my creation

Crimson’s Creative Challenge #96

Childhood dream

to own a cozy cottage

painted white

with the red-tiled roof

Surrounded by the trees

remains unfulfilled
as I bargained for

the security and safety

my tiny flat provides

The Quilt Story

Posted on

Dear Friends, this is my son’s new venture. Please like, share, and subscribe to the video on you, when you have time. Thanks.

The Quilt Story

A tradition kept alive by Women deep In the heart of Rural India, lies the Origin of ‘The Quilt Story’! Each quilt is the Result of Patience, Dedication, and sheer ambition of skilled women. Each knot and each stitch tells the story of the creator’s imagination, creativity, and perseverance. ‘The Quilt Story’ is an effort to empower these women who hail from a village in Himachal and to take the story of their creation to the world. The quilts come in covers of cotton, satin, and silk and in sizes that meet all requirements. Authentically hand-stitched, these are not metered quilts but a work of art!.

It’s always me

Posted on

Reena Saxena

It’s always you, it’s not me,
Mercury riding on your back
with light you interact
playing a game
designed to sell
You pass judgements on me….

You catch reflections
bouncing back
from my skin
my core
you’ll never catch
it lies so deep beneath

I master language
write self-portraits
use a few filters
from fave apps
to present the best me
Yet, I know….
what I conceal
or reveal

stories you write
about me
from interactions,
perspectives
and the mirrors
you see…
Not the real me…

Then, my Me
is a story
I write every day
to live up to
and create
identity
Legacy …

It’s always Me….

Strangers

Posted on

Reena Saxena

separated by screens
and masks
connected by devices
I often wonder
if I hear them correctly


humans spend more time
peeping inwards
eavesdropping
to hear the voice
of your conscience
and soul


strangers we have been
not sure if more
to ourselves
or others

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #150- ILLUSIONS

Posted on

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #150

Prompt- ILLUSIONS

Let it be a theme for the week’s writings. It may not necessarily be about privacy, but the various illusions we live under, and which actually make life bearable. Knowing too much would debilitate our sense of individualism, independence, achievement, or glory. It is actually a happy bubble we live in.

Life from now onwards

Never be same again

Illusions busted

myths are broken

That mankind is superior to all creatures

a tiny virus crushed us all 

 

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #149- Optimism

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #149

PROMPT #149

“How far does optimism go?”

 
hopefully, 
I’ll do better next time
is the height of optimism for me
it has pulled me so far
it may take me to the end
but why bother to be
either optimist or pessimist 
it makes one prejudiced 
why not take the situation as it is
act according to your capability
and what it demands

‘they enjoy
I’m happy
at long last…
they’ve learnt
to pay for it’
~ Reena Saxena

Reena Saxena

tiny eyes twinkled
in darkness 
of my psyche
-innocent laughter long
long after they left


They laughed at my ignorance
the newest fool in town
they knew not
where I came from
my language 
was alien 
my attire strange
to their 
limited vision


Then on…
I donned many colours
spun new stories
from my embellished hat


they enjoy
I’m happy
at long last…
they’ve learnt
to pay for it
