The Quilt Story

Posted on

Dear Friends, this is my son’s new venture. Please like, share, and subscribe to the video on you, when you have time. Thanks.

The Quilt Story

A tradition kept alive by Women deep In the heart of Rural India, lies the Origin of ‘The Quilt Story’! Each quilt is the Result of Patience, Dedication, and sheer ambition of skilled women. Each knot and each stitch tells the story of the creator’s imagination, creativity, and perseverance. ‘The Quilt Story’ is an effort to empower these women who hail from a village in Himachal and to take the story of their creation to the world. The quilts come in covers of cotton, satin, and silk and in sizes that meet all requirements. Authentically hand-stitched, these are not metered quilts but a work of art!.

It’s always me

Posted on

Reena Saxena

It’s always you, it’s not me,
Mercury riding on your back
with light you interact
playing a game
designed to sell
You pass judgements on me….

You catch reflections
bouncing back
from my skin
my core
you’ll never catch
it lies so deep beneath

I master language
write self-portraits
use a few filters
from fave apps
to present the best me
Yet, I know….
what I conceal
or reveal

stories you write
about me
from interactions,
perspectives
and the mirrors
you see…
Not the real me…

Then, my Me
is a story
I write every day
to live up to
and create
identity
Legacy …

It’s always Me….

Strangers

Posted on

Reena Saxena

separated by screens
and masks
connected by devices
I often wonder
if I hear them correctly


humans spend more time
peeping inwards
eavesdropping
to hear the voice
of your conscience
and soul


strangers we have been
not sure if more
to ourselves
or others

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #150- ILLUSIONS

Posted on

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #150

Prompt- ILLUSIONS

Let it be a theme for the week’s writings. It may not necessarily be about privacy, but the various illusions we live under, and which actually make life bearable. Knowing too much would debilitate our sense of individualism, independence, achievement, or glory. It is actually a happy bubble we live in.

Life from now onwards

Never be same again

Illusions busted

myths are broken

That mankind is superior to all creatures

a tiny virus crushed us all

‘they enjoy
I’m happy
at long last…
they’ve learnt
to pay for it’
~ Reena Saxena

Reena Saxena

tiny eyes twinkled
in darkness 
of my psyche
-innocent laughter long
long after they left


They laughed at my ignorance
the newest fool in town
they knew not
where I came from
my language 
was alien 
my attire strange
to their 
limited vision


Then on…
I donned many colours
spun new stories
from my embellished hat


they enjoy
I’m happy
at long last…
they’ve learnt
to pay for it

Tomorrow

Posted on

‘ Tomorrow will deliver what today did not.’ Great poem by Punam.

paeansunpluggedblog

Despair is sprawled in the kitchen in the mornings

I pour hot water over it as I make tea

Melancholy sits sulking on the breakfast table

stalling all conversation

I smack it with the newspaper

Frustration lies coiled in every corner

I sweep it away determinedly

Gloom fills the sink along with the dirty dishes

I scrub it hard and wash it away

I try to cajole joy out of its slumber

and borrow exuberance from the birds on the trees

I have been fighting the same battle, these past few months

Losing a few and winning some

Every night I seek refuge in the magical stars

who know too well that sun will rob them of their light

Yet shine bright, not letting forethought wan them

I go to bed with hope in my heart

Tomorrow will deliver what today did not.

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #148

I am inspired by the following words and offer the same as a writing prompt for this week.

  1. Silhouette
  2. Shade
  3. Phantom
  4. Spirit

Phantoms

insomniac mind
plays a trick
you hear 
someone 
crooning a lullaby
nothing but
a phantom wind rustling
the curtains
even that you try to cling on
phantoms are better
than nothing

Silhouetted?

depends

on which side you are

Shade

always black and white

life for me, no shades of gray

missed fun  undoubtedly 

 

Spirit

mind, body or spirit

a unique creation or

just, a fusion of cells

What is Nurturing Thursday, you ask?

Think about it … In our amazing but highly competitive and aggressive society:

  • How many of us truly feel good about ourselves?
  • How often do we extend to ourselves … the same courtesies, considerations, nurturing, forgiveness and understanding we bestow a loved one, a friend, or even a stranger?

With the ongoing intention to accept myself with an open heart rather than label myself as…

Gardens

Reena Saxena

songs of yore
of budding talent
blossoming desires
in gardens of hope
-caretakers
gently 
took  us forward

encounters 
on paths
revealed
a lot more
grows in gardens
other than talent

roots ignored
transplantations
with blessings of power
a favoured few
enjoy
shade and fruit
