Reena’s Exploration Challenge #109

‘A handful of memories’ ….. by Sadje

Keep it alive

Reena is the host of Reena’s Exploration Challenge.

Welcome to Week 109!

So, here’s an image for this week.


As usual, there is no restriction on length or format of the piece.


I wish I could capture a handful of memories

From those far off days in my past

To keep them safe and close to my heart

I would take them out when I feel down

And replay all those golden moments of the past

As an elixir they would lift my spirits

And chase away the doldrums and blues

The past was not perfect by any means

But my memories of it are idyllic

How we remember the good old days!

Playing with words

अजीब होते हैं सपने
समाने को समा जाएँ आशियाँ
हाथों की चाँद लकीरों में
फिसलें तो निकल जाएँ
अंजुली से पानी की तरह

करीब होते हैं अपने
तो लगता है शबनम का क़तरा
किसी दरिया की तरह
गर रूठ जाएँ तो सागर
लगे जैसे मृगतृष्णा

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #109- Nostalgia

Nostalgia …. by Indira

Sharing Thoughts

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #109- Prompt this week


Can someone bring back
Carefree childhood
Caring and loving parents, siblings
Sweet lingering memories of the time spent with
Spouse, children, relatives, and friends
Lovely memories of
Daughter and son’s marriage
Arrival of granddaughter

Unforgettable time spent in
Traveling so many places,
Meeting with so many people

Swimming through the memory lane
cherishing, savoring, relishing all
As if it all happened yesterday
How time flies by
Leaving behind

~ Indira

Known and the Unknown

Known and the unknown …. by Aishwarya at kittysverses

Kitty's Verses

“For I have known them all already, known them all:

To the countless sharing the space,

On this beautiful planet,

Where all co-exist,

I am a nameless face,

I am one among the crowd,

I am nothing extraordinary,

For the ones that know me,

I am a part of the world where they also thrive,

To some my name,

Would bring, cheer,

To a few, anger,

Yet others, indifference,

“For I have known them all already, known them all:

A part of me exists in all,

A part of them exists in me,

If we look at each other’s positives,

As our own,

We would wholeheartedly appreciate,

Rather than compare and snide,

If we look at each other’s negatives ,

As our own,

We would willingly forgive,

Rather than be mean,

It’s those I know,

I go for love, care and support,

Sometimes they deliver, sometimes they backstab,

For they…
