Thursday Inspiration – Mystery

Paula is the host of Thursday Inspiration

This week’s theme is mystery and the picture is below. Here is the song snippet from “Building A Mystery,” a 1997 song by Sarah McLachlan.

‘Cause you’re working
Building a mystery
Holding on and holding it in
Yeah you’re working
Building a mystery
And choosing so carefully

Spaceman puzzle mystery universe

~*~

Put on your thinking hat and try to unravel this mystery

Why the stars twinkle or air shimmers in the heat

Where does the rainbow end if not in a pot of gold

Or you can solve some mundane mysteries that often plague us

Why we get up early on a holiday and miss the alarm on weekdays

Why when we are free to do as we please, we can’t think of anything fun

And when we are overburdened with work, we get a million ideas

If you ever have an answer please do share with me

These puzzles have had me scratching my head

Reena’s Exploration Challenge- 152 – Who am I?

Reena is the host of Reena’s Exploration Challenge

PROMPT 152

“I am a museum full of art, and a deck full of music, but …..”

~*~*~*~*~

The knowledge of the universe resides in my mind

I am a museum full of art and a deck full of music

But who will listen or look at all this priceless treasure

When the people are busily involved squandering their lives

In trivial pursuits and meaningless efforts that never yield

Any fruit other than personal gratification and gain

Who will?

 ~*~

The plight of human race is hard to see

Let me help you out of this mess

A bit of leg up can help you escape

Get out of here while you still have time

Ascend the clouds and move to

Regions where life is sustainable

The heat is going to be unbearable soon here

The air, water and food soon will be

Unfit for consumption and poisonous

Now is the time to get out alive

The only consideration is , where will you go?

~*~

Daily Prompts- Connections

Admittedly, we all are different

Our lives and circumstances are different

No two people have life exactly the same

Yet we are all connected to each other

Emotions shared with empathy and understanding

We feel the joy of others and laugh with them

We even clown about to make a sad friend smile

Or shed tears when we see a tragedy happening

It is heresy in my opinion to divide people

On the basis of race and religion or color of skin

Though there’s no quick fix to the problem of racism

We can nip this evil in the bud when others try to divide us

In response to the following prompts;

YDWP;

Different

3TC;

Laugh, Nip, Fix

FOWC;

Heresy

RDP;

Clown

Word of the day challenge;

Empathy

Fandango’s Flash Fiction Challenge #82

is the host of Fandango Flash Fiction Challenge

FFFCWelcome to “Fandango’s Flash Fiction Challenge.”

The image below is from the Google Hub Photo Frame.For the visually challenged writer, the photo is of a street lamp on the Westminster Bridge in London, looking toward Big Ben and the House of Parliament, which are enshrouded by a heavy fog.

~*~

The fog had enveloped the scene in moments

All sound was hushed as if in awe of this phenomenon

He stepped on the bridge looking for her

She had promised to meet him here at five sharp

But try as he would there was no sign of her

Disappointed, he turned back to leave when

Someone tapped him on his shoulder and whispered

Leaving so soon, you had so little faith in my promise

His delighted smile and warm embrace told her all she wanted

The fog and cold couldn’t penetrate the warmth of their love

Eugi’s Weekly Prompt- Home Sweet home

Eugenia is the host of Eugi’s Weekly Prompt

Home Sweet Home

~*~

Home is where we feel safe, it’s a place of refuge

It is where we take off the masks that we wear

And reveal our true selves hidden from the world

Home a place where the need to pretend stops

Where we kick off the shoes to walk barefoot

A welcoming haven, a warm embrace

Home sweet home where you feel that you belong!

This week’s theme is rainbow and the picture is below. Here is the song snippet from “She’s A Rainbow,” a 1967 song by the Rolling Stones.

She comes in colors ev’rywhere

Coming, colors in the air
Oh, everywhere
She comes in colors

Rainbow gown

I see life in rainbow hues

Sepia tints and monochrome don’t work for me

With so many emotions in my heart

How can I express them without colors

The travails and hardships of life exhaust me

I journey into the imagination to seek serenity

Helps me to nurse my energy and mood back to normal
