Time’s pause

Time’s Pause ….. by Aishwarya

Kitty's Verses

Was it a random explosion,

Or plan conceptualised by group of head hunters?

That led to birth of this universe,

Who orchestrated rising of Sun,

And twinkling of stars?

What is day?

What is night?

Why are some places hot,

Yet others freezing cold?

All of us share the same space,

Not similar situations,

Thoughts too many,

Answers hardly any,

*And Sun decides to go a holiday*,

To unbox these paradoxes?

71 words

* And Sun decides to go a holiday* :- I had read a couple of days back, that a town in Alaska, by the name Utqiaġvik, witnessed its last sunset of the year 2020 on November 20. And, they will be next seeing the Sun only in 2021, to be precise on January 22, 2021. This led me to thinking, all of us share space, not similar situations. Attaching a link to the news clip here.

A writer’s world

“A writer’s world” ….. by Jude

tales told different

Reena’s exploration challenge

As a writer, you pile perspective upon perspective,
And perch on the lofty precipice of dangerous empathy,

Random epiphanies,
And random questions that test your sense of identity,

Like a headless hasaean hunting thoughts, you decapitate the minds of good and evil alike.
You are insane, yet also the therapist.
You come from a tribe of headhunters; so you will never need a shrink.

Craft me a tale,

That I may see who I am.

Craft me a story;

Of who I can be.

~Twenty-word-tale~

Reena asked us to use any of the three phrases below to inspire something we write. I liked them all so I used all three;

  • “His thought process was on so many levels that he gave himself a phobia of heights.”
  • “Random words in front of other random words create a random sentence.
  • “I…

Stop the Words

Don’t miss this poem. “stop the words’ by VJ Knutson

One Woman's Quest

These thought processes…
I am inside out, shredded…
on so many levels
out of sync…
hear my own words
nothing but hot air
making me so dizzy
that I’m becoming afraid
of heights….
phobic, actually

Breathe,
I remember somewhere
between gulps of helium
and the hammering
in my head…
breathe…

Platitudes have no place
in this moment
in the inside out
emotionally raw now

So, I’ll quit the words
breathe until I find ground
again….
then repeat.

(Inspired by the prompt of Reena’s Exploration challenge which can found here. Image my own.)

Random words in front of other random words create a random sentence

Random words in front of other random words create a random sentence ….. by Lady Lee

Ladyleemanila

Random words before random words

Create a random sentence cord

No agenda nor deadlines, try

Own voyage of discovery

Depends on my delivery

If it’s not good enough, I sigh

Look up the sky, something will fall

Whatever happens it’s my call

I’m my own author and speaker

I have fallen down once or twice

And it’s like throwing of the dice

Don’t know what’s next, I’m so eager

I’m a seeker of something lost

If I am crossed you’d be weeper*

Moving on

Moving on …..by Eugenia

lies spread across land

illusions of grandeur lost

as societal woes

transform aimless thoughts

into phobia mania

shrinks scheme to right the wrongs

of the pretenders

healing the world from within

इबादत

Playing with words

करके इबादत बना दिया मैंने खुदा तुझे
डरता हूँ अब बख़्शेगा क्या मेरा ख़ुदा मुझे

होते थे खुश सुनकर कभी हमसे अपनी तारीफ़
लगती है अब गुस्ताखी सी क्यों ऐ ख़ुदा तुझे

सुनते थे कि प्यार का भूखा होता है ख़ुदा
लगती नहीं क्यों वो पहले सी भूख ख़ुदा तुझे

काश करता कोई हमसे भी मुहब्बत हम सी
सिखला देते कैसा होता है खुदा तुझे

लगता है डर तेरी ऊँचाइयों से “अमित”
कैसे पहुंचूँ तुझ तक बतला दे ख़ुदा मुझे

Visit to the Shrink

Visit to the Shrink …. by thedarknetizen

The Dark Netizen

I come from a tribe of head-hunters, so I will never need a shrink.

It’s a paradox, but I believed it to be the truth. That was until the voices in my head began speaking. Just one in the beginning. But soon, nineteen others joined in. I demurred visiting a shrink even when their constant chattering and bickering began drowning out my own thoughts. On some lonely nights I would feel my entire conscious self shoved to the bottom of my mind, the voices taking over completely. For the very first time I felt that I was no longer in control of my own body. I booked an appointment with the shrink at once.

The shrink heard me out patiently, even heard out some of the statements made by the other voices. She asked me to write down the names of the voices, if I knew them. I knew all…
