Cesspool

PROMPT #258

CESSPOOL

One of my greatest fears is

What if 

The people get used to the stench 

the cesspool of all the vices

is spreading 

What if  

in their desperation

they start to follow

when you can’t fight them, join them

and start enjoying as much as

the inhabitants of the cesspool

What if

they lose 

their confidence

their ethics

and their will to

stand against injustice

and their fight

REACTION


Many break down with complication
Sensible look for the solution
Blaming and grieving
Praying and complaining
Sighing and winning
Never helps
But the majority believes in this notion

Any word starting with Re

to keep them alive

don’t shy away

REPENTANCE

In childhood, some play a lot  

In their youth, they sleep a lot  

In old age, they repent

How wrongful life they spent  

And waste time just regretting

Bewitching- Reena’s Xploration Challenge #255

Bewitching

Fatal attraction
In bewitching eyes and smile
Compelled they jump
Oblivious to their ends
Like a moth into the fire

POLITICO- Reena’s Xploration Challenge #254

Posted on
We have a word prompt this week- Politico

They voted for the politico

For he promised to scrap corruption

But once in total power

Amnesiac, he becomes

Now his second name is corruption

Jamais Vu

Posted on

The word prompt for this week is

Jamais Vu

It is the opposite of Deja Vu.

jamais vu involves a sense of eeriness and the observer’s impression of experiencing something for the first time, despite rationally knowing that they have experienced it before. Jamais vu is sometimes associated with certain types of aphasiaamnesia, and epilepsy.

I’m sure his visit to the hospital is to confirm whether I’m alive or dead.

I’m in a vulnerable position. 

‘Who am I, who are you, why I’m here?’

I bombard the doctor with questions.

The doctor confirms traumatic amnesia.

He seems relieved.

I have to feign jamais vu

till I’m strong enough to return the favors.

Prompt #250

It is a picture prompt this week.





lonely, tired, dejected

I stumbled upon the tree roots

Welcoming looks the door

Inviting?

maybe

maybe not

Fear of the unknown
Rings the alarm

However, alluring something looks

When in doubt
Better keep away

PROMPT#248

We have a phrase this week to serve as your writing prompt.

…passing through a doorway in history

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Entering a doorway in history

hoping to get a glimpse of 

our glorious past

written by our scholars

not what we were made to read

in schools

written by

rulers

politicians

and

rogues

with vested interests

Reena’s Xploration Challenge #247- Writing in One Sentence

Posted on

The prompt for today is Writing in One Sentence

Any thought that passes through you is good enough, as long as you can express it in one sentence. The sentence can be two words or as long as you can stretch it. It’s perfectly okay if it looks like a paragraph or stanza.

‘More than the wounds the revelation that those he thought his loyal were working for the enemy camp killed him…’
