My

home was

surrounded

by trees and ponds

what a  heavenly

landscape it provided

Now unscrupulous tree cutting

and unscrupulous use of plastics

Alas! only what I see around

The huge dump of plastics or Plasticscape

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 mask

Haiku Horizons prompt “ocean”

Haiku- Ocean

Ocean of desires
The Lack of means to fulfill
Road to depression
 
—————————–
 
Ocean of desires
Lack of determination
A bird without wings

 

———————————–

Ocean of knowledge

So vast, deep and inviting

Watching from the shore

 

Nest- The Daily Post

Nest- The Daily Post

Come quickly with me lest the sun sinks into the luring west!

So there’s light to see where an eagle built its lofty nest.

Daring, youthful thinking slipped into this proud bird’s brain.

Or was it confident trust resting in its regal veins.

You see the tree the eagle chose its days in which to live

Looks old and weak and gnarled, like naught it ere could give.

You may be the mighty eagle.

You may be the worn out tree.

No matter what your role is here.

There is still a need for thee.

A Month of Mini Writing Challenges 2017-Day 23

Write a poem about an alien.  Any length.

Limerick- An Alien

When in my life  I haven’t seen an alien 

How can I write a poem about an alien 

Once I saw it in a movie

It looked funny but not loony

It looked intelligent and not barbarian

A Month of Mini Writing Challenges 2017-Day 20

 Write a poem in under 20 lines inspired by a myth, legend or fairy tale.

 

Once upon a time
to live happily ever after
People used to induce in life
Love and lots of laughter
( Now they fight on minor issues)
Inspired by shortest fairy tale by D.M.Conner
Once upon a time,
in a land far away,
they lived happily ever after!
The End.

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

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

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
