Collaboration….by Sadje

Keep it alive

Treat the two images as two stages, and write about what happened in between. You can change the order as you wish, or even add more stages in between.


He had questions 
I had the answers
He wanted answers
I had bright ideas
Bright ideas that
We together made work

Collaboration is the key
A key that unlocks success
Takes a bit of this and a bit of that
The whole is something better than
The original idea and its solution

Written for RXC # 230, hosted by Reena

It Ends Where It Begins

It ends where it begins … Michelle Navajas


It Ends Where It Begins

is there anything
you can’t seize and hold firmly?
you have been shattered
you have been splintered
over the years
over time.

you have dealt
with all the traumas
and dramas so gracefully
that you emerged
beautiful and victorious
over the years
over time.

is there anything
you can’t seize and hold firmly?
i doubt there will be any
for you have kept a beautiful smile
amidst pain
amidst heartaches
over the years
over time.

when something ends
another begins what happens
in between is unknown to many
as to your ending and beginning
the in between was what made you
the woman that you are now.

amidst pain
amidst heartaches
over the years
over time.

Brainstorming ….by Diana Coombes

Writer Ravenclaw

‘Brainstorming, is that what they call it?’

‘More of a lightbulb moment,’ Stephen said.

‘We need to save the business, but we can’t do it alone. Sooner or later we need to trust each other. I know we got off on the wrong pair of shoes.’

It was a strange turn of phrase, but Stephen liked his attitude. There was something about this man, which was a good type of different. Since he walked into his office, asking for a job, they had aligned an unusual friendship.

He still didn’t know who his family was, or why he asked for the job, but he was the one man he could trust. Sometimes sharing a problem gave the answers.

‘We could sell more lightbulbs,’ Alan said.

Stephen laughed, if only it were that easy.

‘Different types of lightbulbs, I’m thinking more like specialised lightbulbs. The ones that are solar powered,’ he…

Modern Motherhood

The meeting starts at 9.30 am. I’m late. The kids have to manage with takeaways. They love it, but I’m not sure if it is the right thing for healthy growth. I stop in my tracks by the sarcastic look in my  boss’s eyes “You’re not the only mother out here. We need to run … Continue reading Modern Motherhood

A Unique Title For Me

In the picture on the left, the guy with the question mark in his brain is perplexed and he has no clue about how to solve his problem, but it is a good thing for him that he ran into the guy with the lightbulb in his brain.  Lightbulb head is an idea man, and he has an unusual capacity for visualizing and formulating solutions, and he uses this unique talent to get his creative juices flowing.  Ideas just seem to pop into his head all the time and no hurdle is too big for him.  It is not easy being lightbulb head as ideas come suddenly, unannounced and they are often uninvited, and his subconscious is off and running.  His brain is like a giant memory bank that constantly stores, sorts and retrieves data based on his beliefs, previous experiences, memories, skills, and everything that he has seen, done…

No Pants

No Pants — by Susi Bocks

I Write Her

Inspired by Eugenia’s Weekly Prompt – Guiding Light & Reena’s Exploration Challenge #230

in today’s world of text messages and emails
confusion over interpretation mounts
face time, video chats, and zoom meetings
brings us together live
to determine intent and desired goals
our guiding light is honesty, openness, and cooperation
to achieve desired outcomes

As We near Graduation — a Conversation we may hear!

As we near Graduation …. by Myrna

I Believe, BECAUSE -

Reena’a Xploration Challenge, my story about the image below.

Let’s Shake on that!

"Hey buddy, can you believe it's about that time we will graduate from this place, and have you given it any thought about what comes next?"

"I have many questions but no real answers; what about you?" "I have a myriad of ideas but just can't quite make up my mind about any of them"! "I say, ideas are like opinions; everyone has one, but an original scheme and how to execute it might be successful. "You're right; perhaps there are no more new ideas, so we need to find a better way to accomplish them!" "It is said that two heads are better than one, right! Why not sit down, and maybe we can together come up with a brilliant opportunity." "What the world needs is action, not another idea." "Today, all we see are…

Confetti on the guests at … Continue reading Mega-weddings
