Weekend Writing Prompt #32 – Reflection

Challenge

Prose Challenge – Write a story in 150 words where a character sees their reflection and is surprised by what they find.

Poetry Challenge – Write an acrostic poem, where the first letter of the first word of each line spells out “reflection” as it is read from top to bottom.

REFLECTION

Reflection of inner thoughts

Escapes not

From wise eyes

Let, then,  reflect

Empathy and compassion

Care and  love

Trust and gratitude

In your eyes

Or wear the real face with courage

Never deceit with a mask

 

Poem For Halloween

Posted on

A Month of Mini Writing Challenges 2017- day 30

Write a spooky poem in 13 lines for Halloween.

‘Your neighbor is spooky’ 

warned my friend  

but I never paid a heed

how can I believe until I see her

performing a  spooky deed

then one day when she cut hand 

and spilled not a drop of blood

I found it terrifying indeed

but she danced and sang swirling her head

with one hand in full speed

so blood-curdling was the sight 

I thought of taking a flight 

and to the nearest exit, I hurried

Fight

Success in life

Is all about

To know

The right time to fight

And the right time

To take a flight

The Daily Post- Inevitable

Posted on

Inevitable

Inevitable is

Failing and falling

Inevitable is

Life and death

Inevitable is

Faults and failures

Inevitable is

Disappointments

But never give up

Faith, courage and 

Dedication

As giving up is a sin

And an obstacle

In your path to win

Enchant Your Everyday: A Month of Loving the World

Day 19- Shimmer

let the love and innocence flow from 

one heart to another heart

let the  purity of love,

 thoughts and conscience

flow from the heart to the soul

then only your face will shimmer

from the inner glow

like the sea shimmer from sunlight

like the moon shimmer from sunlight

like the earth shimmer from

 the moon and the sunlight

Enchant Your Everyday: A Month of Loving the World

Day 16- Flight

God has not given me wings

perhaps it was never intended that I fly
but to my mind
were given thousands of wings
to fly above the clouds
to discover new lands
to never sit still in one place
however, may I  try
with the mind of a wanderer
and the body tied to the earth
I make my life enchanting
by not to take a flight
when I see others in a plight

Enchant Your Everyday: A Month of Loving the World

Day 11- Today’s word is grace

Enchanting my every day with gracefulness

by  keeping style and composure and elegance

eliminating  ego, selfishness and discrimination

exchanging it with love, compassion and harmony

for all the creatures of the universe

in all aspects of life

whether having success and happiness

or feeling little low and  down

Grace is rather being like The Sun

who keeps its elegance, beauty and composure

always intact

whether rising up or whether setting down

PHOTO PROMPT -© Madison Woods

silver line

The sky was gloomy,

Dark clouds hiding the full moon

No stars to follow direction,

No shore to be seen.

Loneliness added to the apprehension,

Helpless, hopeless, hapless

With no strength left

Unable to fight.

All hopes were gone

I resigned to fate.

Suddenly I saw a smiling face,

Mother’s face

Full of encouragement,

Inspiration and assurance

As if saying

“Do not worry my child

Be patient

do not lose hope,

Believe in God and pray,

Everything will be fine

As behind every cloud

There is a silver line.”

And I saw the moon

Emerging from the clouds

Writing 201: Water

Posted on

Writing 201: Water– Today, let’s write a poem about water. And/or a haiku. And/or use a simile.

Droplets of water

Scattered on the lotus leaves

Shimmer like pearls

 

Image result for image of droplets of water on lotus leaves

sad, depressed, heart-broken

I take a dip in the sea

calm, cool, soothing water

tastes like my tears

waves  caressing

wash traces of tears

whisper in my ear

don’t break down or bow out

be like us

floating on the surface

gathering courage and

hitting hard on the shore

~Indira
