Reena’s Exploration Challenge # 113

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #113

Welcome to yet another brilliant week!

I’m still reeling under the magic of multiple responses to multiple prompt words. I’m more than happy to see the creativity that flowed in, encompassing the prompt words, and intermittent spaces being filled up with brilliance.

I can’t resist the temptation to repeat it at least once. So, here is a set of images. Choose one or more or all, and create magic once again.


I am using these two images for my poem.


Seal your lips with a pretty smile

Let no words of censure escape them

Stay quiet and bear all that is dealt to you

It is a women’s place to absorb all the abuse


As for me, you know I don’t see so well

My myopia makes it hard for me to discern

The harsh realities of life often escape my notice

I just try to look inwards and here I see no evil


The death of innocence and birth of cruelty comes together

One dies when the other is born out of human apathy

Staying quiet when it is time to speak up can do so much harm

Not seeing what is wrong right under our noses can destroy


Tear away this gag of silence and speak up your mind

Throw away these myopic blinds and see how wrong

The world has become when people are turning a blind eye

To all that injustice, hatred, and bloodshed going around us

I stand and look

The way is difficult

The climb is too steep

Should I turn back without trying

Give up without a struggle

I don’t think so

Not yet

I am not one to admit defeat without trying

I know I may fail

But I will give it my best try


The Challenge;

Use above image as inspiration for a poem or short story.




Pop of Positivity- Mellow Mood

Beckie is the creator of Pop of Positivity.

Welcome back to “POP!” Pop of Positivity! #8 


“What is “Pop!” – Pop of Positivity?”

“Pop of Positivity”   It’s based on one simple thing.  “Life doesn’t have to suck all the time.”  Let’s face it… There’s a Helluva lot of negativity in the real world, and it’s pretty hard to escape it.  I thought of this as a means to brighten up everyone’s day.  Taking time away from thinking about the negative and switch gears and think of the positive.  Perhaps,  we can all share some smiles along the way too.


The Theme for Week #8

Mellow Mood, What’s Mellow Mood?  It’s a quote that fits your current mood and a song that relaxes and chills you out.


My mood is contentment now! Being happy and peaceful with what I want.

Relax and count your blessings.

All the right ingredients for relaxing.


Walking on sunshine- Katrina and the waves

Enjoy. Relax. Be contented.



Daily Prompts- A mystery

The mysterious circle appears overnight

Nobody can say what or who made them

There are a lot of theories going around

Some say that the architect of these are aliens

Some think that they are formed by nature

The people with imagination have a wonderful time

Playing this theory and then the other

Our minds wrapped up in the image of UFOs

Landing in our field and demanding ransom

Holding out buddies hostage and threatening

To obliterate the human race if we don’t acquiesce

To their demands of complete surrender

Whatever the cause, it does intrigue the mind

How and who formed these circles?

In response to the following prompts;


Circle, Wraps, Buddy





Word of the day Challenge;







Blogging- Another WordPress issue!

Disappearing comment tabs.

The users of WordPress know that we are often hit with new glitches every other day on our blogging platform.

This issue came to my notices when a blogger friend commented on one of my posts that my recently published post had no option for commenting. I went and checked it and they were right. No comments tab was there at the bottom of the post. I fixed it after trying various ways and by a lucky chance hit on the correct way to do it.

The same issue happened a few times with other posts of mine. Sometime I would notice it myself and sometimes some kindly soul would point it out by commenting on another post.

But now I have seen more and more posts from other bloggers whom I follow where there is no comments option. I am almost 99% sure that it is not optional. It is another gift from our considerate WordPress team. They probably think that it is too much effort for us to write comments and then the blogger had to reply to them.

So if you notice that you haven’t received any comments on your post, please go and check.

How to fix it;

Open your post in the browser.

Go to the Post settings.

Click on more settings tab.

Here you will see that the comments and linkback enabling boxes are both unchecked.

Check both boxes by clicking on them.

Save the Post settings.

Go back to the Post to see if the comment b option is showing.

This fixes the company problem usually. If it doesn’t works contact the

” (un) Happiness Engineers”

And do check your posts after they are published. There are many posts where I couldn’t comment because of this issue.
