A Month of Mini Writing Challenges

A Month of Mini Writing Challenges

I stumbled upon this challenge very late. It is already 27th Sep.

The theme is –

  • Day 27 – Write a poem inspired by the theme of “home” in less than 10 lines.

Home Sweet Home

Home is where the heart is

Heart is where the love is

Love is where the compassion is

Compassion is where the understanding is

Understanding is where the friendship is

Friendship is where the compatibility is

When all these make 

The four walls and the roof

 Then there a sweet home is

Writing 201: Trust

Posted on

Writing 201: Trust– Day 3 is here — and so are questions of trust, acrostics, and internal rhymes.

 

I learned from my pet,                                                 ma14 (2)

How to love without affectation,
Trust without calculation,
Friendship without discrimination,
How to get adulation without manipulation
To forgive and forget without reservation.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Love, trust, compassion

Synonymous with friendship

True friends are  a bliss

Friendship

Posted on

Somewhere in life

There must be someone

To take your hand

And share the torrid day.

Without the touch of friendship

There is no life, and we must fade away.

My take on friends and friendship

What are friends there for ?

If not for 
Care, concern and adulation
For being comfortable
In silence and communication
For supporting each other
In every difficult situation
For helping each other
Without humiliation
For accepting each other
Without any discrimination.

Some Haiku(s) 

1- Friendship can unite

     Different species together

     Miraculous bond

2- True friend and friendship

     Most rare and valuable gift

     Treasure it with care

3- Love, trust, compassion

    Synonymous with friendship

    True friends are a bliss 

4-  If all religions 

      Shed their animosity

       Friendliness survives

5- Who cares for color

     When bond of love is strong

     Friendship matters more

black and white

 

Size does not matter

Caste and creed may be different

Friendship cares for none

affection

Friends! What’s your take on friendship, share with me .

 

Wedding Anneversary

Posted on

Yesterday, 10th Aug. was my 42nd Wedding Anniversary. I wanted to write so many things but my daughter sent me a cartoon about in-depth observation  of my 42 years journey. I thought why waste words when a picture can tell a story perfectly.

So ENJOooooooooooooooooooooooY friends.

This is one of my old poems but fits the bill, I think.

leap of Faith

 

We were poles apart

Destined to come together

In the name of God,  love and friendship

We took the leap of Faith.

Sometimes our paths were dark

Sometimes they were bright

Our compassion and compatibility

Made us bond together

And God set everything right

Mask

You put

To impress others

Others

Judge you

By your deeds

Deeds

If good

Need no mask

Prompts for the Promptless – Ep. 11 – Remake!

Prompts for the Promptless – Ep. 11 – Remake!

 Remake/ Change

If I have the power to remake

I’ll change everything which is fake

The attitude of people towards life

towards environment, poverty, religion

and their consumption of natures gift

without sharing equally,

which will lessen their strife.

Then I’ll remake the nature of law about death

Let death come with all its novelty

to carry on nature’s law

but

Let old age keep its

innocence, fearlessness, and cheer

like a child

it will make death less fearful and

make its impact mild.

Fate

Posted on

Life is unpredictable
Future is uncertainty
In the path of your life
Your fate you will meet
Which will savor you as a treat

Gutter Journalism

Posted on

Since Eric Alagan

has wrapped his post- Gutter- 33 word flash-fiction-  I thought why not post it here as a poem.

            Gutter

Journalist from the gutter press
in search of some sensational story
or picture
indifferent to the anguish of a mother
searches for a suitable title
ignores cries of the mother
asking for help

as her child falls in the gutter

( Breaking News-  xx%##*****#)

Inspired by

Cockerel Feathers by Eric Alagan

 

The rooster and the king

When bereaved

Of their feathers and crown

The real worth is known

One  on the platter and

One out of throne
