Reena’s Xploration Challenge #245

Welcome back to another episode of RXC!

RXC #244 is special to me, for the kind of response it brought in. I feel like a voyeur in a room with a mirror, or window view, where talented writers came in and poured their deepest thoughts.

I may not come across such intensity and honesty again, or see pieces of your soul. So, here are all the entries in a booklet. There is a declaration about copyright of authors, and the booklet not being used for commercial gain by anybody, on the last page.

We do not select best entries in RXC, as it is a space to share and connect, not compete. Yet, my heart this week goes to “I am Kintsugi” by Sylvia. Don’t give it a miss.

All links are given below for you to read what you like. Download the booklet as one for keepsake.


I’m intrigued by the beauty of prose poetry, with its higher scope for expression.

We have one post right here by Paula Light.

I came across excerpts from the book “Extinctions” by Sharmishtha Mohanty. Her new book is positioned as “a book of poetry in prose.”

Extinctions by Sharmishtha Mohanty

I’ve read only the excerpts, not the book as yet, hence, am unable to comment more. But the line that stuck with me is

It came from somewhere too far to walk, from as far away as the most unreasonable desire, the most devastating hope.

Sharmishtha Mohanty in Thirty two nights and dawns

The full post is available here.

Let the whole or phrases from this line be your muse this week. I promise the dip will be more rewarding than last week.

Please give due credits to the author of the prompt line on your posts.

There is no restriction on length or format of the piece. There is no last date either, unless you wish to be featured in the Weekly Wrap. 

Any post that is found to be offensive, vulgar or something that hurts common sensibilities will not be included. This needs to be a safe space.

Create a post on your blog, and copy-paste the link in Comments. In case you are using a pingback, do check back to see if it has worked.
