MLMM- Sunday Writing Prompt “Shut Up”

~*~

I need the silence to hear myself think

The noice that your thoughts are making

Are buzzing inside my brain

If you are quiet for a moment the chaos

Will settle down and in the peace I will

Be able to hear my thoughts and decide

What I need to do and where I am headed

So please will you shut up for a minute!

~*~

The Prompt;

Use the quote below as inspiration. All forms of creative expression are accepted.

The world used to be silent
Now it has too many voices
And the noises are constant distraction
They multiply, intensify
They will divert your attention to what’s convenient
And forget to tell you about yourself
We live in an age of many stimulations
If you are focused, you are harder to reach
If you are distracted, you are available
You are distracted, you are available
You want flattery
Always looking to where it’s at
You want to take part in everything
And everything to be a part of you
Your head is spinning faster at the end of your spine
Until you have no face at all
And yet if the world would shut up, even for a while

Perhaps we will start hearing the distant rhythm of an angry young tune
And recompose ourselves
Perhaps having deconstructed everything
We should be thinking about putting everything back together

Silence yourself!” -Savages

Daily Prompts- Smiles

What is my best treasure, you ask

That clinches at the strings of my soul

And yet lightens my days when I look at

The memories that I have stored away

In that cherished place of my heart

The childhood days, the innocent things were used to do

Rarely they fail to put a smile on my face

Even when it is wet with tears of today’s troubles

Things which have become extinct with time

Still live on in my memories, on and on

Thursday Photo Prompt- Keep # WritePhoto

Welcome to this week’s writephoto prompt.

This week’s prompt ~ Keep

(If you know where this was taken… please keep the location to yourselves until the prompt has ended so as not to seed preconceptions for other writers.)

For visually challenged writers, the image shows the ruined tower of a castle, seen through the cross-shaped window of another tower.

~*~

Falling in ruins

Even the strongest

Are eaten away by the decay

Of centuries of neglect and erosion

The grandeur of past left diminished

But yet a strong reminder for us

That whatever someone has built

Eons ago has endured because

It represents the strength and resolve

Of those brave people and their determination

The castle is crumbling, the keep in disrepair

But still a symbol of past glory

Frozen 2:

It’s the last movie I watched.


Frozen hearts need thawing with warmth

Give them love unconditionally and understanding

Even when you feel that they don’t care

Deep down their love is alive, just buried

Under the burden of broken hopes and dreams

It is difficult to be close to them, I know

But it is the greatest gesture of selfless love

When you make them feel your love

Without expecting anything in return

Daily Prompts- Can I ?

Vast waters beckon me to try

Pitting my strength against its might

If I strike out by myself in an attempt

To conquer this great expanse

Can I overcome my inhibitions

And the fear that stops me from venturing

Into the unknown territory

Can I?

Or should I give up this false notion

Abandon the idea before I even try

Be the coward I’ve always been

Giving up on adventure because

Of fear of failing and being ridiculed

No ones deserve a hurrah

When they have never tested their strength

Never dreamed of reaching the wonderland

Come on!

It is time to show the world the

The backbone that I possess and the grit

That this hesitant heart hides in its core

Looking into her Jade green eyes

Eugi’s Weekly Prompt – Laughter – January 13, 2020

Eugenia is the host of Eugi’s Causerie

Your Weekly Word Prompt – Laughter – January 13, 2020

~*~

Whenever you feel your heart is heavy

Whenever you have tears in your eyes

Take a deep breath and fill your lungs

With lots of air and release it in

A deep resounding laughter

It will cure the sadness and the melancholy

It will lift you high and your heart will soar

Like a bird out of a cage and not

Flounder like a fish out of water!
