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

The 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.

Enchant Your Everyday- Light

Posted on

 

Enchanting my everyday

by allowing the light of knowledge

to enter every nook and corner of my mind and heart

Let there be no darkness, no negativity

only light of love, peace,

compassion and understanding

shall dwell in my mind

let there be full understanding that

we are all kindred soul

‘ Faith in Almighty

Connects us with each other

We all are soul mates’

 

Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light. –Albus Dumbledore

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.”
― Martin Luther King Jr.A Testament of Hope: The Essential Writings 
Give light, and the darkness will disappear of itself. (Desiderius Erasmus)

 

 

Light the Lamp of Thy Love :

In my house, with Thine own hands,
Light the lamp of Thy love!
Thy transmuting lamp entrancing,
Wondrous are its rays.
Change my darkness to Thy light, Lord!
Change my darkness to Thy light.
And my evil into good.
Touch me but once and I will change,
All my clay into Thy gold
All the sense lamps that I did light
Sooted into worries
Sitting at the door of my soul,
Light Thy resurrecting lamp!

~Rabindranath Tagore

Enchant Your Everyday: A Month of Loving the World- Flight

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 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 plight

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

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

CONFUSION

Posted on

On my way to the morning walk
I met a centipede
walking leisurely in the park
I asked him
“Which foot you move first”
He stopped on his way
Tried hard  but could not decide
Leaving him there confused

Searching for an answer.

I moved on
While coming back
I saw it still there,
Scratching its head
I asked it what is the matter dear
He said
“I was walking before without doubt and confusion
Now I cannot decide
Which foot to move first
And this is the cause
Of my strife.”
It eyed me with disgust and said
“Some people
Can not take a right move themselves
but are busy in creating
confusion in others life.”

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
