Reena’s Exploration Challenge #88

Welcome to Week 88!

“Two Fat Majors” as the Tombola/Raffle/Bingo/Housie game host would announce when number 88 had to be called out…. Numbers with repeating digits give me an eerie feel, and especially, the number 8 has a peculiar shape. It is like going round and about, to reach the same place again.

I came across another concept on ‘magic numbers’ that you see repeatedly, especially if those are double digit. I see 22 repeatedly, but am unable to decipher the message behind it. An Instagram post said ‘something magical and divine is happening in your life..’ Good to hear that! Not sure if it is true, though….


This week’s prompt moves around two points

  1. A sudden event that feels magical in its impact
  2. Significance of numbers or any superstition if you find it interesting

Write a poem or story or anecdote about a character or event with one of the above two themes reflecting in it. If you can combine both, go ahead. It can be about an argument, wishful thinking, a battle of logic, a fight against ingrained beliefs, the battle of Copernicus, a dream coming true, a nightmare that never occurs in real life but scares you out of wits … absolutely anything that is surreal or mystical and difficult to explain.

Not easy? But not so tough either… I would love to see what you come up with.


There is no restriction on the length or format of the piece. Write a post on your blog, and link it up here with a pingback, or copy-paste the blog link in Comments.

    1. I still breathe – after
      I gave my life for you
      It’s a miracle ..

      The moon’s forlorn
      on hearing your praise
      it’s just a simile…

      Why’re you upset
      not a single word spoken
      It’s just a thought…

      Why did I not speak
      stay silent
      Is it regret?

      The world’s
      not of much use
      it’s a nuisance …

      Why this hope, Amit
      What pulls you?
      It’s just skin …
