Thursday Inspo # 79- Written

Paula is the host of Thursday Inspo

Today’s theme is written and the image is below. Here is the song snippet from “Written In The Sand,” a song written and recorded by Old Dominion in 2017. 

Are we last-call kissing
Or will we be reminiscing 
With each other for the next forty years?
Are we written in the stars, baby, 
Or are we written in the sand?

Sandcastle

~*~

Words written in the sand are there for a few moments

Washed away by the waves as they come rolling in

Promises made in heat of the moment are forgotten soon

A new day, a new interest and it is hard to recall last evening

If you love me don’t scribe it in the stone so that

It would not wash away by the tides of time

Show your love by the kindness which leaves everlasting memories

Reena’s Exploration Challenge- Singularity

Reena is the host of Reena’s Exploration Challenge

Welcome back!

PROMPT #158

The word that caught my imagination while surfing the net was 

Singularity

~*~*~

I am me

But I am you too

We are similar but not the same

Yet the same blood runs through our veins

The joys and sorrows, the highs and the lows

We all experience these emotions in our own way

We have the same beginnings and would end in the same way

But in between, we diversify like colors of the spectrum

Which join together to form one brilliant white light

I am me, but I am you too

Daily Prompts- No extra baggage

The hungry eyes devour the sky

In search for that place where

The grey turns to blue, brilliant and clear

The pain is alleviated, all extra baggage shed

A meal made of clouds of joy served with

Crisp slices of hope complete the bouquet

Vivid images collapse in a kaleidoscope of rainbows.

Mind and soul feasts and equilibrium is restored

Saturday Symphony- Eye of the storm

Jude is the host of Saturday Symphony


PONDEROUS THOUGHT

EYE OF THE STORM

In the worst moments of this pandemic, what has brought you the most joy and peace?

Where is your eye in this storm?

Share with us through any form of writing, images or art.

~*~*~*~

I carry a secret world inside my mind

It goes with me wherever I find myself

It is my safe heaven, it is my eye in the storm

I don’t need a physical place to feel safe as long as I

Have my secret world where I can seek shelter

From the upheavals and turbulence of life

From the hostility of circumstances and of people

I have created this place where I am alone with my thoughts

And where I can talk to my Creator and share my woes

Daily Prompts- Some divine help

Wind in my sails dies down and the boat flounders

There is trouble ahead and I ponder on the problem

No instant solution comes to mind, more thinking is required

My brain doesn’t works so well under duress of pressure

There are many choices, many ways to cover the way back

But the difficulty lies in choosing the right path

I lift my hands in prayer, asking for divine help

Thursday Inspiration- Happy

Paula is the host of Thursday Inspiration

Welcome to Thursday Inspiration!

This week’s theme is happy and the image is below. Here is the song snippet from “If It Makes You Happy,” a 1996 song written and performed by Sheryl Crow.

If it makes you happy
It can’t be that bad
If it makes you happy
Then why the hell are you so sad?

Happy bear

~*~

Looking for happiness

Searching everywhere

I catch it for a while

Then it floats away on the wind

Why is it so elusive?

Why is never lasts?

It took me a long time to understand

That I can be only happy

If I stop chasing the emotion

And start cherishing it as a rare treasure

Daily Prompts- Hunt for rhymes

Some say writing poetry is a cinch

Rhyme a few sentences and you’re done

It does works for me some of the time

At others, it forces me to scream like a banshee

Hunt around in my mind for elusive words

Intangible ideas, floating out of my grasp

The mighty pen hanging its head in sorrow

When it is unable to express all the thoughts

That are circling in the vortex of my mind

In response to the following prompts;

YDWP;

Cinch

3TC;

Friday, Hunt, Poetry

Intangible

Me; I am practical, don’t believe in the supernatural!

Her; are you sure? Because there are many ways one can experience supernatural.

Me; I don’t believe that there are any other beings than the ones that we see. 

Her; I think if you look carefully, you’ll see much more than what meets the eyes.

Me; okay I am looking carefully! What do you want me to see? Hey, where have you gone!!!

A disembodied laugh echoes in the room which is now empty except me.

Daily Prompts- Dreams

I have dreams

Dreams of achieving grand objectives

My life moves in tandem with my ambitions

It advances in a set pattern, treading in between possibilities

Interim delays may occur but I won’t let the phantasm break

Circumstances are not always cordial, difficulties arise

There is no button I could press to make challenges disappear

Nor can I crop them off the agenda of my life

So I deal with them head-on, full-on battle

And hope that I realize my dreams one day

In response to the following prompts;

YDWP;

Tandem

Crop, Pattern, Button

Cordial

First Line Friday- Into the night

Dylan Hughes is the host of First Line Friday

It is First Line Friday! Welcome and let’s get writing.

Your line for this week is:

He laid awake and said the name into the night

The wind echoed the whispers and scattered them in all directions

In vain he listened and wished there was a reply

The tears soaked his pillow and dried on his cheeks

Morning brought a strange kind of calm, a certainty

That she will return, his message had been delivered
