Reena’s Xploration Challenge #249

Welcome back!

I’ve experimented a little this week – taken a few lines from all your entries to weave into a new poem. See what emerged.

I believe I am passing through a gate in history
A twinkle in our maker’s eye
What happens next is a mystery
I stumble upon cracks of time
-crystallized memories
falling through a funnel
Is the past truly a mosaic of endless opinions
or is there more?
I’ll still wait and hope
I would scry on the wind and
search for answers
how much of too much is too little
what makes more a little less?
I was still no closer to the truth,
every day hazier than the last
If only there were a glimmer of hope
I think I can become a superpower
by influencing the present
and the world finds
even my jaded version
a bronzed patina.

All credits due to the authors. Links to the original pieces given below. This poem is not for reproduction anywhere without crediting all the authors.

And now coming to this week’s prompt


A single word,


but you can use any of these or other synonyms

Benefaction, Bequeathal, Bequest, Bestowal, Birthright, Devise, Endowment, Gift, Heirloom, Heritage, Inheritance, Patrimony, Provision, Settlement, Hereditament

For a further twist you have a choice to include its opposite word


or its synonyms

  • cross to bear
  • disgrace
  • load
  • millstone
  • misery

Find your comfort zone to create.

There is no restriction on 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.
