Love and compassion

Combined with forgiveness

A healing potion.

The theme song of life: fast forward forgiveness, procrastinate vengeance.

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #Week 63

Prompt

Here is an intriguing picture shared by Harvey Kraft on LinkedIn.

The picture by itself can tell a thousand stories. But I am increasing the complexity a little. Here is a paragraph from another source.

So what exactly happened here? A woman felt powerless because she was unable to let go of a story she was holding onto which made her a victim. Even though she no longer saw this man, her former lover, she carried him within, and over and over again inside was keeping this version of the story alive.

TILL DEATH DO US APART

It seems there is no strength left in me.

I feel completely exhausted.

I can’t go on like this, I want to quit.

It has happened several times in my life.

Shamefull I accept that I had wanted to quit every time I felt  exhauseted

Everytime my conscience nudged me

‘How could you quit, there is so much to do, everyone depends on you?’

I was young then so summoned my willpower and got up every time. 

But now with age catching up, it seems an uphill task. 

I’m lying on the floor, helpless, hoping to go…There comes an extending hand for help, 

How could you be so desperate? Didn’t you promise, ‘ till death do us apart’?

Oh yes, I remembered. 

Indeed how could I leave him in the middle of our journey?

He was always there to support me, never grumbled, criticized or belittled me. 

What I was complaining about?

With a feeling of guilt, I grab the extended hand thankfully.

Indeed the show must go on ’till death do us apart.’

Didn’t once I advised everyone that’

When there is unrest or apprehension
When there is, in life a lot of tension
Take a break and retrospect.
When you overworked and very tired
When you are stuck in an old routine
Take a break and get good rest.
When dissatisfaction, and no fun in life
You think life is taking you for a ride
Take a break and meditate.

Weekend Writing Prompt #62 – Zephyr

Posted on

Thanks, Sammy for The Weekend Writing Prompt #62 – Zephyr

 

Gentle as Zephyr

Love touches my parched soul

Longed for this moment

 

 Longed for this moment

Forever and forever

Fearing it eludes

 

Fearing it eludes

Me without ever knowing

How you feel when loved

 

How you feel when loved

The way you want to be loved

On the seventh sky 

 

On the seventh sky

Hoping to never come down

To the loveless world

 

To the loveless world

Of the harsh realities

Where no one wants me

 

Where no one wants me

Soul parches and yarns for someone

Gentle as Zephyr

 

Gentle as Zephyr

Where do you reside, in

 Dream or reality

#Weekly Tanka Prompt #Poetry Challenge – Week 100 – Celebrations & Century

Thanks, Elsie for your wonderful challenges which gave me something to think and made me try other types of poetry. I will miss these challenges.

table-2446578_640

Mother’s century
Though we could not celebrate
As she passed away
Three years before completing
Seeing her pain and discomfort
I prayed for her departure
Whom we love can’t see in pain
( This is not a Tanka but had to add the last line)

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.
