Reena’s Exploration Challenge – 168

Reena is the host of Reena’s Exploration Challenge


Well, there are more terms and conditions in this prompt than any other episode of the Exploration Challenge. Enjoy the difference 🙂


A breakdown in domestic water supply


  • President of a municipal corporation
  • A harangued home-maker
  • Founder of a fund-raising startup
  • Seller of water tankers 
  • A poet/writer


Work-from-home scenarios, Covid, weather or whatever you can think of.


Write a story as small as a sentence, or as large as 500 words, or somewhere in between. I promise to read the entire piece.

If you can tell a poetic tale or write a ballad, you are most welcome to do it.

The story has to be from the perspective of any one of the given characters. The other characters in the piece can be one or more of those listed here, or any other character you can introduce in the plot. No restrictions on those self-driven bots which take over your thoughts.

Create a post on your blog, and copy-paste the link in Comments. In case you are using a pingback, do check back to see if it has worked.


I stare at the faucet with hope in my heart

Will it reward me with a gush of clean water

Or will a dribble of cloudy brown liquid will come

When I’ll turn it on early in the morning for my ablutions

Should I tell it a story of a brave faucet that overcame all odds

Or recite to it a loving ode written in its praise

I need water………….

But I have no technical skill only my poetry

To induce or encourage it to pour out a handful of clean water

It’s a struggle to be on time if there is no clean water to assist me

In my morning rituals!
