Reena’s Exploration Challenge #Week 41

We are dabbling with Erasure Poetry this week – call it White Out or Black Out as you please.

Erasure is a form of found poetry or found object art created by erasing words from an existing text in prose or verse and framing the result on the page as a poem.[1] The results can be allowed to stand in situ or they can be arranged into lines and/or stanzas.

BLUE: The Color Of Longing

The world is blue at its edges 

and in its depths

The blue that gets lost
never travels the 
whole distance
from the sun to us

the blue that got lost
the blue that does not reach us
gives color to the colorless water
purer the water 
the deeper the blue
at the horizon
the blue land
seems to be
dissolving in the blue sky
the blue
at the farthest
reaches of the places
where you see for miles
deeper
dreamier
melancholy blue
the blue 
color of distance
the blue
which does not touch us
does not travel the whole distance
is the beauty of the world
so much of which is 
in the color blue.
blue 
at the far edge 
of
what can be seen
the color of the horizon
of remote mountain ranges
of anything
far away
color of emotion
the color of
solitude and desire
the color
where you can never go
for
the blue is not
at the horizon
but in the atmospheric distance
between you and mountains
the color of
longings
for the distance
you never arrive in,
For the blue world
~Indira

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

A Month of Mini Writing Challenges 2017- day 30

Write a spooky poem in 13 lines for Halloween.

 

‘Your neighbor is spooky’ 

warned my friend  

but I never paid a heed

how can I believe until I see her

performing a  spooky deed

then one day when she cut hand 

and spilled not a drop of blood

I found it terrifying indeed

but she danced and sang swirling her head

with one hand in full speed

so blood-curdling was the sight 

I thought of taking a flight 

and to the nearest exit, I hurried

 

Hidden- The Daily Post

Hidden- The Daily Post

hidden
in a corner of your mind
unfulfilled desires
lie dormant
waiting for a weak moment
to conquer you
you run away from them
they chase you
you fight them
they empower you
you suppress them
they become an obsession
if they are goal oriented
they take you to the
destination
if they are only lust greed
they will take you to the
hell

The Daily Post- Fight

Fight

Success in life

Is all about

To know

The right time to fight

And the right time

To take a flight

The Daily Post- Inevitable

Posted on

Inevitable

Inevitable is

Failing and falling

Inevitable is

Life and death

Inevitable is

Faults and failures

Inevitable is

Disappointments

But never give up

Faith, courage and 

Dedication

As giving up is a sin

And an obstacle

In your path to win

Five Sentence Fiction – Alone

Five Sentence Fiction – Alone

Alone… By SHA-1 SOURCE

Alone… By SHA-1
SOURCE

Comfort Zone

Loneliness is the time when all sorts of thoughts confuse one , take them to the introspection as  she  was   wondering while walking alone that  whether she has   lived her  life in a daze or else why there is so much loneliness, emptiness sometimes in her heart, in spite of being surrounded by relatives, friends, and neighbors, there was something missing in her life.

Suddenly she noticed a Fortune Teller sitting with his caged parrot, waiting for the people to come and know their fate.

Whenever someone came he opened the door, parrot came out, selected a card, gave it to him and went inside the cage.

She noticed it never tried to fly away, whats more it closed it if the owner forgot to close it.

Was it for food, security or it has become habituated to living alone, loving the captivity or simply lazy like her who never tried to venture beyond her comfort zone?

Friends Forever

Friends - Forever

Friends  Forever

 

Your beliefs are based on,
what you have gone through your life.
My beliefs are based on,
what I have gone through my life.
So, let there be,
a space between,
your belief and my belief
where we shall meet, and
agree to disagree on some points.
Then there will be no bitterness.
Our friendship will be
forever and forever,
and that would be, my friend
for both of us, a great relief

Introspection

Posted on

sometimes a gesture of someone
starts the introspection
someone inside you asks,

did you try  hard for your success
or to get what you did dream
or got tired and gave in the midway
or blamed your stars
or cursed your luck
and let your dreams  shatter away.

Hope you are the lucky one who can say
I gave my 100 percent
tried my best
and never faltered away.

 

Love

What love is all about ?

methinks,

It is easy communication,

togetherness,

and comfortable interaction,

as do the pups,

with their snout.
