Reena’s Exploration Challenge #108

‘Down, down, down into the darkness of the grave

I know

I can’t change

anything in this world:

anything which is fake 

or

the attitude of people towards life,

towards the environment, poverty, religion

and their consumption of nature’s gifts

without sharing equally

I do not approve

either

nature’s law of death

why make people

in old age

vulnerable

why not they can keep

their innocence, fearlessness, and cheer

like a child

till the end

then let death come

with all its novelty

to carry on nature’s law

and allow them to  go slowly, gently, peacefully, graciously

down, down, down into the darkness of the grave

I wish I could say: 

and I’ve not resigned

but

what ho!

I have no power

no voice

no choice

though

I make a lot of noise

but here I resign.

What else can I do

except changing myself

My niece’s wedding preparations: henna ceremony.

Aiburobhat‘ loosely translates to Aiburo (bachelor) Bhat (Rice). The ceremony thus celebrates the last Meal of a bachelor at their own place. In many Bengali families, this ritual is most common.

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #99

CAPTION PROMPT

This is perhaps the easiest challenge that appears in this space.

तुम मुझे किसी फ्रेम में फिट नहीं कर सकते

छोटा, बड़ा,
त्रिकोने, चौकोर
आड़ा , तिरछा
मैं  सबसे बाहर निकल
हवा में फैल जाऊंगी
तुम मुझ पर कोई भी ठप्पा नहीं लगा सकते
हिन्दू, मुस्लिम , सिख ईसाई
जैन बौद्ध
या कोई भी
मैं  बस एक इंसान हूँ
इंसानियत धर्म है मेरा
चाहे धर्म, परांपरा , रूढ़िवाद के नाम पर
चाहे मुझे जलो
फांसी दो या ज़हर पिलाओ तुम मुझे मार  न पाओगे
मैं  सिर्फ ये तन नहीं
इन सबसे परे
एक स्वंतंत्र
हवा, पानी, सूरज,मिटटी का मिलाजुला रूप हूँ
अनंत
जिसे न कोई बांध पाया था
न बांध पायेगा
मेरा व्यक्तित्व
जो मुझे इन सब दायरों से अलग कर देखेगा
बस उसे ही समझ आएगा
———————————————————————————————————————————-
एक उलझन
थोड़ी सी जगह चाहिए  थी
किसी के दिल में जगह बनाने के लिए
किसी को दिल में बसाने के लिए
बिखरने और बिखराने के लिए
फैलने और पाँव पसारने के लिए
पंख फैलाने के लिए
तभी तो उड़ान ले पाती
क्या सिर्फ प्यार
जो बाँध कर रखदे
एक खांचे में
काफ़ी है
व्यक्तित्व में निखार लाने के लिए ?

PROMPT WORD

Perspective

I have changed my perspective

till now it was

thank God!

the glass is half full

now

I see the glass half empty

worried

horribly

if our attitude

towards

misuse and

wastage of water

continues

soon

we will be left

with the empty glass

Reena’s Weekly Exploration Challenge #108

Reena Saxena

Welcome to a poetic week!

Poetry touches the soul, and has the power to impact
thoughts and lives. Only a writer can appreciate the craft of making poetry
whatever it is – be it a game of rhyme, syllables, structure, choice of words
or a free flow of thoughts.

I’ve chosen two short pieces of iconic poetry, which are
given below. However, your task is not necessarily to write a poem. You can choose any one line out of the
seven given here, and use it as the first line for your piece.
 You can choose to end the piece with another
line, but it is not a compulsion.

As usual, there is no restriction on length or format of the
piece. Write a post on your blog, and copy-paste the link here. If you are
choosing a pingback, please check if it has worked. There have been instances
