Eugi’s Weekly Prompt- Enlighten

Eugenia is the host of Eugi’s Causerie

Your Weekly Prompt – Enlighten – March 30, 2020.

~*~*~

We can live our life in a way that it matters

Or we can just exist and go through our days

Like automatons, doing the daily routines over and over again

The difference lies in how we look and perceive life itself

Do we open ourselves up to receive enlightenment

Or do we reject the lure of knowledge and bury our heads

In the sands of ignorance and arrogance

The decision is ours to make

~*~*~*~

Daily Prompts- Exploring

Let us explore the path that leads

Into that closely guarded domain, always kept hidden

It is in all honesty, the best we have to offer

But we keep it hidden, pitting it in undeserved captivity

Does it tickles your curiosity to know what I am referring to

I am talking about the inner sanctum of course

That we hide because we don’t want to expose

Our tender feelings to the outside world

We develop an outward slick exterior

To hide our soft emotions in plain sight

But now is the time to show our love and tenderness

To those we love

For love makes us all stronger and better able

To face uncertainty and adversities, together

In response to the following prompts;

YDWP;

3TC;

Path, Honesty, Remote

FOWC;

Tickle

RDP;

Word of the day Challenge;

Undeserved

Daily Prompts- A fantasy

This would be my best fantasy fulfilled

Cakes, rock buns, sandwiches, and tea

Some might say that I aim low

That food shouldn’t be something to dream about

But for someone who has been at war

All their adult life, trying to vanquish

The enemy that is obesity and overweight

It is one thought foremost in my mind

If someone invented calorie-free goodies

How wonderful it would be for people like me

To eat till we couldn’t eat anymore

But to still weight the same as before

But…….

I should stop being a ninnyhammer

As this dream is not going to come true

Let’s go out for a walk and try to shed

These unwanted pounds and get healthy

From my evening walk, yesterday! There was a light drizzle and there looked magnificent in the fading sunlight.

In response to the following prompts;

Daily Prompts- Sabotaged!

I did it myself

Nobody else was to blame

I sabotaged my diet with binging

It’s not that I don’t care

It’s only that the stress always

Makes me hungry, craving for goodies

Yummy sweets and chewy carbs

If I could handle tension well

I would not be staring belligerently at the scale now

Well what is done cannot be undone

I need to go out and walk again

See how the animals and birds are coping

Their habitat restored once again

No fumes, no noise and humans far and few

Stay away from crowds but do go out to enjoy nature.

Wishing you all health and safety from all ills.

In response to the following prompts

Sabotage

Violin, Wire, Handle

Reena’s Exploration Challenge # 128- WAR?

Reena is the host of Reena’s Exploration Challenge

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #128
~*~*~*~*~

War

The struggle for supremacy

So futile and wasteful

Where the cost is not only human lives

But we pay it by sacrificing our humanity too

We shed the civilized veneer and its trappings

The label of animal is so unsuitable

As animals always fight for survival

Unlike them, we fight so that we can profit

But what is the use of money or power

As sooner or later we too shall die

Leaving empty-handed and alone

~*~*~*~*~

PROMPT #128

So, here we are with three quotes to drive your thoughts.

War is hell. You can’t photograph a flying bullet, but you can capture genuine fear.

Today the real test of power is not capacity to make war but capacity to prevent it.

Thus, what is of supreme importance in war is to attack the enemy’s strategy.

Tuesday Writing Prompt- 24 March, 2020

~*~

Poet’s lips are silenced but not her pen

Her words are not censored, never chained

She writes what she feels in her soul

She writes the truth, laying it bare

And in doing so, exposes the lie for what it is

They say the pen is mightier than the sword

Truer words have never been spoken

The Prompt;

Devereaux Frazier and Beth Amanda are currently hosting the Tuesday Writing Prompt Challenge which was started by our star writer Christine Ray. We hope to offer all of you something that will spark your creativity and willingness to participate.

Today’s prompt: “Poet’s lips”

Daily Prompts- Snuffed Candle

Today is the anniversary

Of the day you left me on my own

The gypsy scried that it would be so

But I still believed that you would make it

We were together for just a few years

When life was confiscated abruptly from you

I have meticulously preserved your things

Not because I am bitter at the fate

But because it reminds me of what we had together

In response to the following prompts;

YDWP;

Confiscate

3TC;

Anniversary, Divorce, Bitter

FOWC;

Meticulous

RDP;

Scry

Word of the day Challenge;

Together

Daily Prompts- My obituary

Cast adrift on a moonless night

The ship sails on sea that is calm

Seeking quiet and solitude I stand here

Thinking how my life is dependent

On those who are a constant in my world

If……

One day I was not here anymore

Would my obituary be read with sadness

Or with a feeling of relief

Would I like them to be sad, missing me

Or will I leave them relieved, secretly happy

I think the best legacy I can leave behind

Would be a score of kind deeds

That will make them remember me with love

And be glad for the fact that they knew me

In response to the following prompts;

YDWP;

Adrift

3TC;

Moonless, Crisp, Quiet

FOWC;

Dependent
