I’m wanting to write poetry
Oh! My love! You are my poetry
But, today when you are not around me
Words are not coming in my mind
So, I choose a bowl of random words
Words like happiness
Words like sadness
Words like love
Words like lost
All are there in my bowl
But the ultimate truth is
Poetry happens when you feel.
This was written for Essence of Reminiscence. This was the last prompt of the month and sorry Priya for being so late. The prompt word is Random.
I’m sharing a sweet little story with you all, an inspiring story about feelings…
Once upon a time, there was an island where all the feelings lived: Happiness, Sadness, Knowledge, and all of the others, including Love. One day it was announced to the feelings that the island would sink, so all constructed boats and left. Except for Love.
Love was the only one who stayed. Love wanted to hold out until the last possible moment.
When the island had almost sunk, Love decided to ask for help.
Richness was passing by Love in a grand boat. Love said,
“Richness, can you take me with you?”
Richness answered, “No, I can’t. There is a lot of gold and silver in my boat. There is no place here for you.”
Love decided to ask Vanity who was also passing by in a beautiful vessel. “Vanity, please help me!”
“I can’t help you, Love. You are all wet and might damage my boat,” Vanity answered.
Sadness was close by so Love asked, “Sadness, let me go with you.”
“Oh . . . Love, I am so sad that I need to be by myself!”
Happiness passed by Love, too, but she was so happy that she did not even hear when Love called her.
Suddenly, there was a voice, “Come, Love, I will take you.” It was an elder. So blessed and overjoyed, Love even forgot to ask the elder where they were going. When they arrived at dry land, the elder went her own way. Realizing how much was owed the elder,
Love asked Knowledge, another elder, “Who Helped me?”
“It was Time,” Knowledge answered.
“Time?” asked Love. “But why did Time help me?”
Knowledge smiled with deep wisdom and answered, “Because only Time is capable of understanding how valuable Love is.”
After spreading fun filled, challenging love task, now it’s time to spread beauty. I’m so glad to be nominated by Prakesh, a beautiful person and friend to spread the Vires of Beauty.
Beauty is Everywhere
Beauty lies in the beholder’s eye
So soft, calm, yet eloquent, beauty
Beauty takes out best from dark
Dry lifeless flower too is beauty
Beauty takes out best from bright
The blooming of bud is beauty
Beauty can be a poisonous wine
Eve and Adam killed by beauty
Beauty can be a medicinal divine
Nature’s abundant love is a beauty
The task is to writeten sentenceson “Beauty” and each sentence to have “six words” one of which must be “beauty” and ending it with a favorite quoteon “beauty“And also nominate your friends to participate and spread the Love of Beauty.
“You turn dark shadows into canopies of hope and dry grass into gold.
My heart is spoiled and my breath consumed when the beauty of the earth gives a glimmer of understanding to the beauty of You.”

You want me to be strong
But I’m feeling weaker inside
You want me not to be alone
But the darkness is growing more
In my mind, I know time will change
And give myself too many try’s
I have injured my pride
But still want to take that ride
Trying my best to get everything back
And I will again stand strong
I want to fight for my pride
Will take some time to get back on my feet
But the strength within me will prevail
And I will again stand strong
I’m gathering myself together
With a will not to give up
It will take some time to heal
But I know I will stand strong
