Oh Prompt me, Do! Our world Today

I always wanted to be the peacemaker. It was a childish dream but whenever there was tension between family members, us siblings or between friends, I would want the issues resolved and good relationship restored. As I grew up I realized that this is not practical or even possible for everyone to be happy with others or that there would be cordial relationship between everyone. It was a pipe dream.

But when Rory asked Which talent you always wanted to have? Tell us about it?

This popped into my mind. Since we are talking hypothetically, why not! I wish I had this amazing talent to restore good will between two people who are upset with each other. Can you imagine how nice that would be. No one would have any reason to be angry as all their arguments and issues would be resolved, before they even became aware of them. The world would be a better place and there wouldn’t be wars or tension among the different countries even!

And if you had this talent how would you use it to your advantage in your world today?

I don’t know if there could be a personal benefit from it other than a peace of mind that people are not upset or angry with each other. I couldn’t benefit monetarily from it as it would be totally bizarre to demand to be paid for something that I wanted to happen, and maybe others were not so bothered about it anyway. But the world, at least the world around me would become friendly and stress free. That would be a great advantage.

So Rory or the Bloke has given us a wide choice of prompts. You should try them. You can find his prompts here;

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #75

PROMPT

The challenge this week is a pretty short one – just one word. If you have to look it up, consider yourself safe 🙂

FOR THE NEW ENTRANTS

There is no restriction on the format or the length of thepiece. It just has to be your reflection on the prompt from the core.

Write a post on your blog, and link it up with here with apingback, or copy-pasting the blog link in Comments.

I eagerly await your responses.

A beautiful mind

The beauty of the world doesn’t attract me

The reason is that I have seen many who are

Only pretty on the outside but rotten to the core

I like manners and graces but it is not something

For which I would give my trust or devotion to you

The money maybe important for now but it can go easy

Nobody can guarantee that the wealth will stay with you always

So what do you find charming, you ask for it is a puzzle

And very frankly I will tell you what attracts me to you

It’s something you can neither buy nor trade

It is the great intelligence that lives in your

Very beautiful mind

Stream of Consciousness Saturday; February 23, 2019x

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday “critic(al).”

Use it any way you’d like. Have fun!

After you’ve written your Saturday post tomorrow, please link it here to this week’s prompt page and check to make sure it’s here in the comments so others can find it and see your awesome Stream of Consciousness post. Anyone can join in!

How do you react to someone who is critical of your work? Personally I am not very happy when offers ” constructive ” criticism on my writing, unless I ask for it. If it is in answer to my request, I appreciate it. Like I often ask my husband to read one of my posts and ask for his opinion on them. In fact when I started my blog, I was pretty unsure of myself and would show him all of my posts. And it was his encouragement that gave me the confidence to write more and on different topics and formats.

So what is your reaction if someone tells you that there are a number of flaws in your work?

Three Things Challenge PL #8

Rob was very excited as he had just received an order for fifty T-shirts. He had just stared his business bare six months ago and it was growing in leaps and bounds. He was the first one to admit that the success of this venture rested largely on the efforts of his partner and cousin, Alberta. She was so good at marketing the product that his designs were catching on like wild fire.

And the fact of the matter was that his designs were based on the theme of the wild. He loved the jungles and the majestic creatures that dwelled there. The most recent order was of the tee shirts which carried the picture of the snow leopard. It was a beautiful design based on his own photograph. He had decided from the start that he will contribute a part of his income from the business towards the preservation of wild life in the jungles. And because of his love of all things wild, his designs were also based on it. This component of the enterprise won the hearts of many like-minded people and they were supporting his venture wholeheartedly.

Tale Weaver # 211 ; Making Sense of The Nonsense-Egrlactical 21Feburary

This week a nonsense word to play with.

You can use it as a noun or verb or adjective, go where your imagination takes you.

Please limit your responses to 500 – 600 words and link your work using the linking tool below.

My favorite people are the egrlacticals.

There are many types of people in the world. The analysts are the one who questioned and analyze the facts to get to the conclusion. Then there were the egrlactical who believe everything and anything anyone told them. There are many advantages of being an egrlactical. They have a very peaceful mind as there are no conflicts in their brain. Taking everything at face value makes them very pleasant company and they are the first ones to agree with you during any debate. People invite them to their homes because they will swallow all the far-fetched tales you can relate to them. I personally like that they are the most pleasant guests you can have. Another advantage of being an egrlactical is that you will never get in a fight or argument with them because of a divergent view or faith.

Where these people are highly popular, some people can and do take exception to the yea sayers. It sets off their non-conformist alarm. They do like someone to disagree with them and the egrlactical disappoints them in this scenario. Some people like to make fun of the very trusting nature of an egrlactical person, getting them to agree first to one point of view and then presenting them with a completely opposite opinion where the egrlactical will agree with it too.

Make friends with an egrlactical and you will have a lovely time with them!

Thursday Photo Prompt; Timeless #Photowrite

Use the image below as inspiration to create a post on your own blog… poetry, prose, humour… light or dark, whatever you choose, by noon (GMT)  Wednesday 27 th February and link back to this post with a pingback to be included in the round-up.  There is no word limit and no style requirements, except to keep it fairly family friendly.

The rock was there since olden times. Nobody knew what it was. Was it a part of something bigger or was it a monument in its own right. All they knew that it was fixed here. No one was able to move, change or destroy it.

At the heart of the rock burned a memory. A memory of days past when it was the sign of strength and solidarity. The tribes which had lived around this valley were all sworn to uphold this unity. Now many years had passed and the tribes had all scattered but the rock remained. And at its heart the memory was still bright, waiting for the time it would be powerful again.

Fear Of Commitment

Not all but most of have an inbuilt fear of commitment. There is a hesitancy and reluctance to commit oneself to a cause. We can find so many reasons for avoidance. It is always someday but not now and not today. The mind seeks the security of success, fearing failure. But the thing that we ignore is that life gives us just a finite number of chances. Then the game is up and we are left wondering, what if!

The commitment can be to a person or a course in life. What immobilizes us is that we are afraid of the future which is never guaranteed. The tomorrow may bring glorious triumph or dreaded failure. So we postpone our decisions. We look for surety and assurance in the future of our endeavors. Only the brave souls march forth and grab the future by both hands. They have no fear of failing and thus their success is almost guaranteed. Because belief and faith in their own abilities wins half the battle.

A strange passion he had, dressing up as a clown, and putting on the face too

A mask of happiness, a cheerful demeanor

Eyes sparkling with merriment and wearing a wide joyous smile

He would ask them to be merry with him

Share the gaiety and delight of the lighthearted fun

There was a hidden grief that he showed to none

Believing that his smile was deceiving those he wanted to please

The heart was breaking and the tears burning the eyes to escape

But always the iron control over his emotions

Fooling, fooling, too much fooling he would cry

Word count; 100

Can you hear the lovely tunes that I can play on my keyboard!

It’s time to stop playing with rattle and do something grownup

I am a big boy now and have learned a lots of songs that I can play

Happy three-lining!

There was palpable tension between the angry protesters and the police deployed to keep the peace and a few of the protesting youth were trying their best to provoke the law keepers to retaliate.

The standoff seemed to be at an impasse as the angry young protesters were adamant on entering the public offices of the Mayor and make him listen to their demands of releasing their colleagues at once.

The photographer from the local newspaper was the one who broke through the tension and made a truce between the two groups by asking them to pose with him in a selfie!
