Spring- Photo Prompt

my gratitude to the mother nature

for blessing us with the spring
which gives us in abundance
the buds and the blooms and the colors
and for especially the cuckoo for sweet music
and the mango trees
who at the hint of the spring
get laden with fragrant blossoms
to give us mangoes in plenty
without discriminating 
the rich and poor

Mango Blossom, Flowers, Yellow, Blossom

Flower, White, Sea Mango, Fruit

Weekend Writing Prompt #44 – Fallen

Thanks, Sammicox, for the prompt.

Challenge

Prose Challenge – Write a three-sentence story: one for the beginning, one for the middle and one for the end, inspired by this weekend’s word prompt.

Poetry Challenge – Write a triolet inspired by the photo prompt.

 

 

Not fallen down in love or fallen out of love.

Sometimes felled due to nature’s wrath, or for the greed of the rich people or for the need of the poor.

I was not given a choice.

Word Prompt

 Time

Photo Prompt

Challenge

Prose Challenge – Write a story in 175 words where the central theme is time travel.

Poetry Challenge – Write a poem of no more than 20 lines where the first line:

  • starts with the word “Time”
  • is repeated at least twice

 

Time, I thought, would teach me

How to forget the pain as 

time is a great healer they say

Time would teach me, I thought,

how to face the storms

and sail through

I thought time would teach me

to accept and live in harmony

with the universe

But in the end,

I found

Time stands still

neither stops you

Nor forces you

in your journey through life

You learn yourself 

art of living 

or fail

Time is just a mute spectator,

of your arrival, your journey

and your departure

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 a mask

 

Weekend Writing Prompt #19 – Abundance

Weekend Writing Prompt #19 – Abundance

Poetry Challenge – Write a non-rhyming poem, in 15 lines or less, that includes the words:

  • abundance, prosperity, plenty

Nature’s gifts

were in abundance

for everyone

without discrimination

hoping humans will use it with wisdom

for their prosperity

there were plenty

for everyone’s need

though

not for their greed

they took them for granted

misused, wasted and abused  

and like fools cut the branches

on which, they were sitting

 

The daily Post- Longing

Posted on

Longing

What do I long for?

Love? Friendship? Company of people? Peace?

Sometimes I feel very lonely

And the more lonely I feel

the more lonely I want to be

I don’t want to talk to anyone

Don’t want to mix with people

I just want to dwell in my gloominess,

Submerge in my sorrows 

No materialistic pleasure can calm me

Can give me peace

So what is it I want?

Who can understand?

How I’m feeling

What I’m feeling

What I’m longing for

Perhaps I yearn for that great comfort, calmness, peace, delight? 

I felt when I was in my mother’s lap
