Reena’s Exploration Challenge #112

WRITING PROMPT 112

This week you can choose one or more from a set of 10 words/phrases, to kick start your thought process. Let us see where the journey takes you. The comments often offer different perspectives and start another thread of creativity. Find time to read those and interact with other writers.

Here are the options….

  1. pockets of stillness
  2. question your maps
  3. cynical assertions
  4. lost alphabet
  5. was that really me?
  6. crumbling thoughts
  7. undulating patterns
  8. free-flowing bonds
  9. pregnant pause
  10. potential of emptiness

Pockets of Stillness

जिंदगी दौड़ रही
बेरोक बेलगाम सी 
कभी कभी इसमें 
विश्राम होना चाहिए
जिंदगी कटी यहाँ 
वहां घूम घूम के
अब तो कोई 
पड़ाव होना चाहिए
बदला ना खुद को कभी 
अपनी ही जिद में जिए
अब तो व्यवहार में 
बदलाव  होना चाहिए  
बचपन में खेले खूब  
जवानी में भटक लिए
बुढ़ापे में थोड़ा  
ठहराव होना चाहिए
~Indira

 

It is so much more rewarding to understand than to feel right, even if that means changing your mind about a subject, an ideology, a person and even yourself. — Maria Popova 

About Indira

I knew all along that life is about, love, compassion, compatibility and friendship, but now I have discovered that life is also about sharing the thoughts, encouraging others and getting encouraged. So here I am with my blogs about life, friendship, love, and whatever life has taught me.

  3. Yea, love the visual side of it, but can’t read it. Though it might encourage me to learn, it’s not going to happen today. 🙂

  4. This is for you, Crispina https://crispinakemp.com/, and others who cannot read Hindi…

    life sprints on
    uncontrolled, unstoppable
    I long for
    moments to rest….

    A life spent
    wandering
    I long for
    camping somewhere…

    refusal to change
    living with ingrained beliefs
    I long for
    change somewhere…

    childhood in play
    experimental youth
    maturity longs for
    a pause; somewhere
