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

 

GOALS

Posted on

SUNDAY POST :GOAL

” It’s one of life’s great paradoxes …
Accepting with gratitude whatever life throws at us
is critical to happiness.
Yet without a goal and commitment, life lose much of its value.
The best we can do in the face of this paradox
is to play to win, but be cheerful in defeat
and ready to play again.
– Jonathan Lockwood Huie ”

My goal is to learn or try as many things as possible before I go. Sometimes I succeed sometimes  , due to my own limitations, I have to retreat . I feel frustrated and depressed for some time then try some other thing.

My only consolation is that even GOD has limitations.

Even GOD can’t put the clock back.

As I’m unable to draw and paint due to eyesight problem, its photography I have started. Inching forward, I may one day capture a masterpiece.

Hope for best.

I’ll quote Jack here-”  Efficient goal work includes recognizing and resolving all guilt, inner conflict or limiting belief that might cause one to sabotage one’s efforts. By setting clearly defined goals, one can subsequently measure and take pride in the achievement of those goals. One can see progress in what might have seemed a long, perhaps impossible, grind.”

Here are some of photographs taken by me.
