A Month of Mini Writing Challenges

A Month of Mini Writing Challenges

I stumbled upon this challenge very late. It is already 27th Sep.

The theme is –

  • Day 27 – Write a poem inspired by the theme of “home” in less than 10 lines.

Home Sweet Home

Home is where the heart is

Heart is where the love is

Love is where the compassion is

Compassion is where the understanding is

Understanding is where the friendship is

Friendship is where the compatibility is

When all these make 

The four walls and the roof

 Then there a sweet home is

Make Friends

‘ Make friends, make friends,
However strong
Or weak maybe:
Recall the captive elephants
That the mice set free.’

~ The Panchtantra




Writing 201: Trust

Posted on

Writing 201: Trust– Day 3 is here — and so are questions of trust, acrostics, and internal rhymes.


I learned from my pet,                                                 ma14 (2)

How to love without affectation,
Trust without calculation,
Friendship without discrimination,
How to get adulation without manipulation
To forgive and forget without reservation.


Love, trust, compassion

Synonymous with friendship

True friends are  a bliss

My brain fuse was blown off the moment I saw his medical report.

My dearest friend, so young, so disciplined, so pure hearted, perfect, always ready to help others, has just 6 more months to live.

‘There may be some mistake’

No it’s true, he started crying bitterly.

I fumbled with all the switches in my brain to cheer him and me.

‘What a coincident!’ I started laughing,’ I too am diagnosed with it and have 5 more months to live.

He forgot about his illness. ‘So what shall we do?’

‘Just enjoy life, go for world tour or whatever we can afford.’

He smiled; ‘Okay I’m going to make arrangements.’

Small lie to cheer someone a sin?



Five Sentence Fiction – Fenced

Five Sentence Fiction – Fenced


Our houses had a common wall, a very big veranda covering both the houses without any wall to bar us from going to each other’s house whenever we like.


For years our different religions were not an obstacle in our close friendship and life was great fun celebrating all festivals together, going to market, school, and picnic together.

Who could have thought that a little dispute between two communities, which did not even concern us, will give way to a riot and mar our very old friendship?

A fence was raised overnight between our veranda to stop us children from going to each other’s house.

Do elder’s ever think how do we children feel when religions stand as a barrier between our friendship, how helpless, miserable we feel?

Somewhere in life

There must be someone

To take your hand

And share the torrid day.

Without the touch of friendship

There is no life, and we must fade away.

My take on friends and friendship

What are friends there for ?

If not for 
Care, concern and adulation
For being comfortable
In silence and communication
For supporting each other
In every difficult situation
For helping each other
Without humiliation
For accepting each other
Without any discrimination.

Some Haiku(s) 

1- Friendship can unite

     Different species together

     Miraculous bond

2- True friend and friendship

     Most rare and valuable gift

     Treasure it with care

3- Love, trust, compassion

    Synonymous with friendship

    True friends are a bliss 

4-  If all religions 

      Shed their animosity

       Friendliness survives

5- Who cares for color

     When bond of love is strong

     Friendship matters more

black and white


Size does not matter

Caste and creed may be different

Friendship cares for none


Friends! What’s your take on friendship, share with me .

Wedding Anneversary

Posted on

Yesterday, 10th Aug. was my 42nd Wedding Anniversary. I wanted to write so many things but my daughter sent me a cartoon about in-depth observation  of my 42 years journey. I thought why waste words when a picture can tell a story perfectly.

So ENJOooooooooooooooooooooooY friends.



This is one of my old poems but fits the bill, I think.

leap of Faith


We were poles apart

Destined to come together

In the name of God,  love and friendship

We took the leap of Faith.

Sometimes our paths were dark

Sometimes they were bright

Our compassion and compatibility

Made us bond together

And God set everything right

Weekly Photo Challenge: Change

‘ The only permanent thing in this world is change.’

When two person marry, it does not only changes  their single status, but their attitude towards each other. They have to learn compatibility, caring and sharing. They have to learn to live with difference of opinions, to make compromises for each other. The glue which can make their marriage is friendship, love , compassion and commitment. In a way marriage changes their whole world. Well, these are my views, what my friends have to say about this, lat us see-

As my friend  Stevenhallbooks reminded me, I will add- good communication between spouses is a must for good relationship.
