Reena’s Exploration Challenge #106- Paradox

Posted on

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #106

Welcome to a space beyond the Equinox, where equality becomes a myth again! If the Sun and Moon are not equal, can day and night be? The strength of the stars and power of perception gain importance here. It is all a matter of underlying meaning and perspectives.

PROMPT 106

Our theme this week is ‘Paradox’.

Some well-known examples are

  1. Your enemy’s friend is your enemy.
  2. I am nobody.
  3. “What a pity that youth must be wasted on the young.” – George Bernard Shaw
  4. Wise fool
  5. Truth is honey, which is bitter.
  6. “I can resist anything but temptation.” – Oscar Wilde
  7. “All animals are equal, but some are more equal than others.” – George Orwell
  8. “I must be cruel to be kind.” – Shakespeare
  9. “The earth that’s nature’s mother is her tomb;
    What is her burying grave, that is Rainbow in her womb…” – Shakespeare
  10. “The child is the father of the man…” William Wordsworth

You are free to use any of the above, other examples that you like, or invent some of your own.

I came across a new one today – All of us have a lesser number of friends than our friends do.

Incorporate the sentence in your piece – be it fiction, poetry, essay, anecdotes, memories or any other format that you choose.

Post it on your blog, and link it up here. If the pingback does not work, please copy-paste the link. Tag it ‘Reena’s Exploration Challenge’ for easy search in the blog roll.

Enjoy a blast of creativity…


My take-

Deafening Silence

 

whenever
we disagree on something
you withdraw and
go into a shell
I find
your
silence  so deafening
should I feel happy
that you don’t fight back
but
this happiness is killing me
emptiness is filling me
the void between us is deepening
loneliness is crowding
with thoughts that you are thoughtless
you always make me feel guilty
your indifference widens the differences
is the depth of love is so shallow
that it will break
with few fights, that
difference of opinions
will make a rift
so wide
which we could not fill
and drift apart

 

Nurturing Thursdays- Talk to Yourself

“Have you realized that most of your unhappiness in life is due to the fact that you are listening to yourself instead of talking to yourself?” ~ Martyn Lloyd-Jones

Nurturing Thursday- Stay Positive, Stay Happy

Posted on

Good advice from Becca- Nurt Thurs – Fired!

“You only have control over three things in your life – the thoughts you think, the images you visualize, and the actions you take.” – Jack Canfield

So shrug off all the negative thoughts, sow a seed, nurture it and wait.

“STAYING POSITIVE does not mean that things will turn out okay. Rather it is knowing that YOU will be okay no matter how things turn out.”– Unknown

Year- The Daily Post

Year- The Daily Post

The year twenty sixteen
 Was a mixed bag of up and down
Sometimes I reacted sensibly
Sometimes like a clown
Now it’s to be seen 
What brings  twenty seventeen
Takes me up the ladder
Or throws  me down
But I believe
Happiness and sorrows
All come to an end
Don’t lose faith till the very end
Keep the hopes and dreams alive
Without them no one can survive
Failure is the key to success
And not the end

Happiness is…

Posted on

happiness is looking into the innocent, cheerful, smiling eyes.

Sitting under a tree at, its trunk keeping my back straight. Weather is very pleasant, cloudy, cool breeze, giving a hint of rain. I’m all alone, enjoying the surrounding, full of trees.

There comes a dog. Looks at my face. Perhaps for any sign of like or dislike. Founds agreeable. Comes close hesitantly. Sniffs my feet, then hurriedly licks my feet and runs away. Comes back again. This time more confident. Wags its tail, again licks my feet and goes away.

Suddenly comes a squirrel, stripped, cute, just 4 inches away from me. Looks at my eyes. I’m sitting very still. Not to frighten it away. We are both looking at each other. It takes me like a statue, perhaps. I can’t keep long without blinking. I blink. The spell is broken. It runs away.

This is the first time a squirrel has come so near. I feel sorry. I could not take its photograph but I’m happy, very happy.

It takes so little to be happy.
