Daily Prompts- Like a Dream

Like a dream, the evanescence of life passes

A year a decade or is it an hour or a few minutes

How quickly it disappears, the flow never stops

Sometimes like a bolt of lightning,

Sometimes just an invisible gentle movement

It gives me goosebumps just thinking about it

How swiftly we are moving on this journey of ours

One day we’re two lovebirds starting our life together

And then I see us, two oldies comfortable with each other

Ah! This is life, this evanescence of invisible flow

Saturday Mix – Rhyme Time, 30 May 2020

Sarah is the host of Saturday Mix

Welcome to the Saturday Mix, 30 May 2020!

This week we are “writing away, and having a play, with rhyming words for you today” with Rhyme Time.

‘Rhyme Time’ focuses on the use of rhyme to build your writing piece. You will be given six rhyming words* and need to use all of them (but not limited to these) in your response, which should be a poetry form of your choice.

*Homophones can be used as alternatives to the challenge words.

Our rhyming words this week are:

  1. able
  2. label
  3. fable
  4. cable
  5. table

6. Stable

~*~

The stall door was broken at the hinges

And the boss called from the stable

To hurry around and bring the cable

For he needed to fix it standing on the table

It was true he had the skill for it and was able

But his handiwork wasn’t neat and the label

Wasn’t earned by him of the fixer-upper of fable

Daily Prompts- Almost half a year

I abnegate this current way of thinking

Though almost half of this year has passed

It wasn’t all bad, it wasn’t all stressful

There have been moments of joy here too

A few celebrations, a few jubilees thrown in

There was a change in our circumstances no doubt

A shift from the normal which most of bore well

For our own good, we adapted to the rules

We stayed away to keep ourselves and others safe

Don’t let that thief of peace steal all joy from you

That sows the seeds of discontent and unhappiness

Let the inner spirit fight on with determination

We have come this far and will get through it soon

Like all other challenges, this too shall we conquer

In response to the following prompts;

YDWP;

Abnegate

3TC;

Passed, Normal, Change

FOWC;

Thief

For our good

Daily Prompts- It’s sunny outside

Spring is here at long last

It was late in homecoming, but it’s here now

It’s the time to go outdoors

Trounce the blah blah moods

Step outside and enjoy the sunny day

Notice the flowering trees and verdant greens

Chip and Dale enjoying a soirée

Take a walk or two, smell the fragrant air

Make the most of this beautiful weather

Before it gets too hot to venture out

Daily Prompts- You better resign

You should resign right now

You have no knack of leadership

You’ve made a royal mess of things

Don’t digress from the point and admit

That instead of using the advice and criticism

You’ve let it slide off you like water off a duck

You wanted to assure you have a long tenure

But it’s time to say goodbye and go home

It will be snowing in hell when you’ll get

My vote to run for another term in office

Digress

Tuesday Writing Prompt- I miss you

Devereaux Frazier is the host of Tuesday Writing Prompt

Today’s prompt: End a piece of prose or poetry with the phrase “I miss you”

~*~

I dream of you sometimes

Imagining my self with you

Talking and sharing things from my life

Taking advice and pearls of wisdom

Giving warm hugs and holding your hand

But

It’s been so long that you left me

That I don’t even remember how it all felt

You are gone but not your memory

Mom, I miss you!

Reena’s Exploration Challenge # 137- Their reality or ours

Reena is the host of Reena’s Exploration Challenge

What does it all do to a writer’s sensibilities?

PROMPT #137

I give below three phrases

  1. Writer’s platform
  2. Writer’s Cave
  3. Writer’s Reality

Choose one or more to elaborate on your writing journey – not necessarily through this phase. It could be anything that happened before, or you foresee as happening after this

~*~

Reading can broaden your mind

You’ll learn new things and points of views

New facts and a new way to look at old ones

But at the end of the day, it’s the writer’s reality

Pontificating from their writer’s platforms

Sitting in their writer’s caves, sometimes away

From real life, it’s real struggles and challenges

You can take it as the gospel truth or you can

Analyze it, dissect it and put it together again

It is important to learn the truth from the source

To get the facts right whichever way possible

It’s the truth that matters in the end, not its source

Daily Prompts- Confuse me no more

Your words are confusing, hard to understand

Like circles in a spiral they turn and twist endlessly

The notion may be sound but the words are jumbled

They do surpass my mental powers to grasp them

The boom is loud when words explode in my mind

What transpires in its wake, no one can rate

Stop confusing me and do say it in simple words

Or maybe I will turn the other ear to hear you better

In response to the following prompts;

YDWP;

Transpire

3TC;

Other, Rate, Boom

FOWC;

Notion

Like a circle in a spiral

Crimson Creative Challenge # 81- Cool Blue

Crispina is the host of Crimson Creative Challenge

~*~

The cool blue water

Flowing gently under the bridge

Calms my mind, soothes my fears

Things look bad when I take a glance around me

But when I sit here and enjoy this calming scene

The apprehension and anxieties leave me

And I get up from here refreshed and made whole again

Daily Prompts- A thing of beauty

Rows of flowers blooming

Tubs of roses, spilling out in profusion

The thorns may snag at your clothes

But their fragrance is enough compensation

A thing of beauty, a joy to behold

Gloom and sadness will slink away in shadows

Open the eyes wide, see the whole picture

No problem will seem insurmountable if you will

Break it down into manageable parts and

Tackle each with ease, and grace

In response to the following prompts;

YDWP;

Slink

Problem, Ease, Whole
