Your Weekly Prompt – Harmony – January 11, 2022

➰➰➰

No, not again will you get the opportunity 
To destroy the harmony that I have established
Between my heart and mind with such an effort

Nor will I allow you to put doubts in my mind
I won’t succumb to your promptings and whispers
I am now finally at a place where I am at peace

At last my heart and mind are in rare sync
The consonance between the two halves of my soul complete
The conflict resolved as they both understand each other


Begone!
Skepticism, that always divides the two!

Written for Eugi’s Weekly Prompt- Harmony

Also included; Tuesday Writing Prompt; Begin with the line “No, not again”

January 12th, 2022- Mistakes

Mistakes are part of the dues one pays for a full life”

Sophia Loren

Making mistakes is a part of living and learning. I make many mistakes and then regret eats at my heart till I come to terms with my blunder. Never let any mistake stop you from living to the full. Get over it, apologize for it and go on in life!

January 10th, 2022 – Chocolate

Chocolate colored skin
Beautiful and proud

Moulded to beautiful bones
Spine rigid with pride

Why sing the praise of ivory
When the ebony is just as charming

I find it funny when referred to
As a person of color by others

Because no one is without color
We all just different shades of brown

Respect all heritage, all birthrights
See goodness in all, regardless of their skin color

WDYS # 115 -A Roundup post

New life
New beginnings
Both fresh and innocent
One will grow into a strong tree
The other into a self-reliant animal
The instincts of nature always overcome
The odds stacked against their survival

Whatever

(Respond to this challenge, by either by using the prompt word whatever, or going with the above picture, or by means of the song ‘Gypsys, Tramps & Thieves)

Whatever”, he said shrugging his shoulders in a dismissive manner.

As he started to head out of the room, his father’s voice stopped him. “What do you mean, whatever? Do you agree with what I just said or not?”

You know what I mean dad. Whatever you say is right, I’ll try to improve my attendance record in the uni but it’s no big deal, no one takes it seriously”

No one may not take it seriously, but you should. It’s your future that’s hanging on it. This is the time that every ounce of hard work you put in, you’ll get its reward in your career”

As Jake walked out of the living room, Henry wished that some of what was just said would stick in his son’s mind.

Starting a new chapter

Every day is a new beginning 
And you can write a new chapter
Close the book on yesterday
And keep it in the repository of memories
Add a new chapter, a new story today
Live it, savor it, and enjoy it
Don’t waste time on the book of past
Invest in the story you’re writing now
Looking back only serves us when we learn from it
Being in the moment is the most important thing, now

A brand new idea!

Wishing you all a very Happy New Year!

And the Xploration Challenge is back with a new image 🙂

PROMPT #212

It’s new … does it mean it’s welcome?

It is new, a brand new idea
I’m sure when you pay mind to it
You will be convinced that it’s brilliant
And not only you but thousands more too
Will testify to the greatness of my new idea



What do you mean?
You aren’t impressed by my idea?
You don’t think it will revolutionize the world
But……..


Not everything new is better too
Just because it sounds novel
Test it first and its merits
And then decide if it’s a good idea
Or not!

January 6th, 2022- Anticipation

Sometimes, the anticipation is far more enjoyable 
Than the actual event that we are waiting for
The pleasant feeling that tingles through us
When we think of achieving what we have wanted
The wait may be tedious but when we are rewarded
By getting what we have been aiming for
That feeling is just priceless!

January 4th, 2022- Generosity

Generous is the one who gives
Of their time or possessions
They share what they have selflessly
Not hoarding for the “rainy day”



But the one who accepts this generosity
Is also one to be applauded for their graciousness
For not everyone will admit their need
Or take what is given with open heart in the same spirit



Another type of generosity is often ignored
Forgiveness and acceptance is perhaps the best kind of generosity
A heart that can heal their own wounds
And those of the one who wronged them are heroic indeed

Written for Linda’se JusJoJan- Generosity

Reflections of ourselves

Wonder how we all see something different, while looking at the same situation? The reason is that we see what we think we will see. Something that is inside ourself, sparks this thought.

Like a mirror we reflect 
What is inside our minds
Into what is around us

~*~

Sometimes do this
Sit alone with your thoughts
Analyze your self and contemplate
What you really are
What are your values and goals
What makes you, uniquely you
This understanding will give you
A rare insight into your mind
That you weren’t aware of

A tool of great empowerment
