Crimson’s Creative Challenge #25

Girl on Bank CCC25

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

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #Week 61

In the immensity of consciousness, a light appears — a tiny point which moves rapidly and traces shapes, thoughts, and feelings, like a pen writing on paper. And the ink which leaves a trace is the memory. You are that tiny point and by your movement, the world is ever re-created.

 Sri Nisargadatta, I Am That

 

Alas!

It eludes me

the immensity of consciousness

again and again

could have

lead me

to a higher plane

Alas!

I am

where I was

when I was born

yearning for my mother’s embrace

now at the end of my journey

yearning for my mother’s embrace

my existence

in between

is a cipher

#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.

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)

Weekly Tanka Prompt Challenge – Week 75 – Shining & Winter

Winter awakens

Which weren’t asleep anyway

Shining memories
Of  sitting around fire-pot

Of mother telling stories

Scars

Ruby has to cross the lonely footbridge daily on her way to school. She goes and returns with friends, and still mother never forgets to remind her strictly to never pass the bridge alone. Though their colony is very safe, security guards are posted everywhere.

Ruby wonders why mother is so scared. She asks mother.

Mother looks in her eyes. She is so young and innocent; she will not understand it now.

Once mother made a mistake of crossing a footbridge all alone when she was young.

Mother still shivers.

Time heals all wounds but some scars never fade away.

 

 

 

The Daily Post- Sentimental

Posted on

I’m  not sentimental  about things or places. We had to move to many places, leave so many things behind when my husband was in a job that I stopped feeling any attachment with any place or thing,  but when  I saw my mother’s swing, after her demise, in my brother’s house, lying in a corner , all  alone, as if  waiting for  waiting for my mother’s touch not knowing she will never come back. With tears in my eyes I caressed it, I tried to comforted it assuming it’s listening to me. (I wanted to bring it back with me, I had gifted it to my mother, but couldn’t ask my brother to give it back to me). I felt my mother’s presence there. I was relieved. It was not lonely. It has lots of memories to live with.

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

Limerick- Aches 

Mother always  took all the aches in her stride 

She never allowed them to take her for a ride
No pain
No gain
Her conviction and her children were her pride 
Love you Maa, miss you so much

Love you Maa, miss you so much

Writing 101, day 14: Recreate a single day.

Magic of Hug

Only once in my life time I did a mischievous act and got punished for it. Friends did it every time ,played pranks on others and got away with it. 

I pulled the chair when my friend was going to sit, she fell down. Nothing happened to her but the chair’s arm fell down too. I was summoned to Mother Superior. She calmly fined me Rs. 13 without any scolding.

When I told my mother, She paid the fine but she scolded me terribly even after me saying sorry to her and my friend, and also that it was my first mischief. Wasn’t I her youngest and pet child? How could she do it to me? 

 I did not eat and went to sleep early. 

After some time I felt a warm drop on my cheek and a hand patting my head.

I got up. Mother was there with food and requested me to eat. In fact I was very hungry and secretly waiting for that.

She hugged me and made me promise never to do it again.

I love you and miss you maa.

बहुत पड़ी थी डांट
शरारत खूब जो की थी
खींचे गए थे कान
शिकायत सबने की थी
रोना धोना किया खूब
और बिन खाए ही सो गए
नींद में किसने सर सहलाया
गालों पे दी पप्पी
अरे!मना रही थी अम्मा मुझको
दे जादू की झप्पी|

~ Indira

जादू की झप्पी
