Reena’s Exploration Challenge #78

(Today, we have a paragraph as a prompt. Do whatever you can with it. Reflect on it, twist it, break it into pieces and use a phrase or just write if you agree/disagree or whatever you think about it. As usual, there are no restrictions on length or format. Suit yourself.)

PROMPT

“That proves you are unusual,” returned the Scarecrow; “and I am convinced that the only people worthy of consideration in this world are the unusual ones. For the common folks are like the leaves of a tree, and live and die unnoticed.”
― L. Frank Baum, The Land of Oz

strange

if someone thinks

leaves live and die unnoticed
nature makes sure
you notice them
in every season
by changing their colors
they wither away
for sure
but
not before
they have served
their purpose

Reena’s Exploration Challenge – 77

Woman – Her Journey

journey of the women

could have been

a lot easy

if

nurtured, cared, loved

with

understanding, companionship, compassion, respect, and unity

by their own gender

because

if you are not fair to the people of your own gender

how will you expect

understanding, equality, and respect

fair treatment from others

who don’t treat

even people

of their own gender

fairly

and discriminate by

poor, weak, color, sex, caste and creed

so women

you have to become strong and unite

as the strength lies in unity

नारी ने कहा
हे नर!

मैं तो हमेशा से वहीँ हूँ 

जहाँ मुझे होना था 

न तुम्हारे आगे न पीछे 
न ऊपर न नीचे 
बस बराबरी में
मुझे तो कभी भी महान बनने की चाहत न थी 
तुम ही हमेशा  ऊंचा बनने की होड़ में लगे रहे 
महान बनने के रास्ते तो और भी थे
उन पर चल तुम ईश्वर बन सकते थे 
पर तुमने यह क्या किया   
मुझे नीचा  दिखाने की कोशिश में 
खुद से कमजोर जताने  की ख्वाहिश में 
खुद को महान  दिखाने की चाहत में 
मुझे मेरे अधिकारों से वंचित किया 
मुझ पर बलात्कार और जुर्म कर 
खुद को ही नीचा गिरा कर 
मुझ स्वतः ही  उपर उठा दिया

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #75

PROMPT

The challenge this week is a pretty short one – just one word. If you have to look it up, consider yourself safe 🙂

what if everyone becomes sapiosexual

money spent

on painful waxing, makeup products
sweating at the gym, dieting,
all that labor to get six packs
to look attractive
will be saved
grey matter is the only thing
we will be caring  about
and that’s enough
to make us better human being

PROMPT

The prompt this week is a collage. Pick any one element of it (a picture or quote), or more and let the thoughts flow. The choice is yours.

 

I beg to differ

Not everyone is  a moon

With dark side to hide

Maybe with few flaws

Visible or invisible

Nothing which

A little attention

Awareness or a strong cannot mend

Maybe

They are Stars

small or big

bright or dim

or

A small candle

Perhaps

Giving light to others

Burning till the wax melts 

Divine blessing indeed

PROMPT

The theme for this week is- ONE MINUTE

 

sandcastle
you make
with love and care
it takes 
few seconds 
for a wave
to 
wash it away
you laugh
you shrug
move on to make next
knowing fully well
that
waves will wash it away too
still
it doesn’t deter you
as the fun and
enjoyment of the moment
is bigger than the 
sorrow
it brings
when you accept 
and 
play along with it

Quaint Lover

go 

grow

fly in the sky

explore the world

don’t hang to me

I’m rooted 

immobile

 you have wings to fly

don’t look at me

with sad eyes

I’m bad with goodbyes

but promise to me

When you are tired

your wings weak

feel lonely 

and  undesired 

come back to me

I’ll always be there 

waiting for thee

rest in my arms 

I’ll sing a lullaby

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #71

challenge 71

getting right is important

and necessary

to some extent

for some things in life
you may get a second chance
for some many chances
to keep trying and improve
and to set it right
but for some
you are given only one chance
even if you do
with lots of preparation
and experience
yet if you falter a bit
all your efforts
goes down the drain
leaving you
with much regret and pain

challenge 70

कितनी  छानी  ख़ाक
गुजरे कहाँ कहाँ से
कितने गढ़े थे चेहरे
बस  तेरा  एक भुलाने को
सोचा था खुद को भूल कर
पालूं खुद से निज़ात शायद
पर हर मोड़ पर वही मैं हूँ
वही तेरा ग़म और  मेरी तन्हाई है
खुद कोअलग कर लूँ  कैसे
सबमें अपना अंश नज़र आता है
सबमें मैं मुझमें सब
गुँथते जाते अनजाने में
हर चेहरा  दर्पण  लगता
खुद का अक्स नज़र आता है

( Pictures don’t talk to me like they talk to others.)

Sometimes you don’t understand the meaning hidden behind a picture.

Don’t try to hide it behind layers of lies.
However colorful they look.
They will expose your intention.
Don’t find excuses.

Tell yourself it’s okay not to know about everything.
No one is going to judge you or laugh at you.
You are among friends.
But if, it happens again and again, then be alarmed.
Your observation quality is poor.
You lack perception
Focus and try again.
How come others are able to find something meaningful in it.
Read much and be inspired.

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #68

normal2 normal 1

Normal life

daily normal routine
of getting up with the sunrise
completing all the chores
going to bed at night
following the same routine daily
is so tiresome
but deviate from it for some time,
and, you yarn to go back to the same routine
long to settle in your comfort zone   
that’s also impossible 
nature is sly
loves routine on one hand
disturbs routine on the other hand
you accept and play along
no guarantee of rewards
you ignore
go against the rules
then be ready to pay the price
