Your Daily Word Prompt – Matinal – September 14, 2019

Ragtag Daily Prompt – Simplicity

Maria Antonia Weekly 2019 Photo Challenge – Come join me, each Saturday, in posting a photo. There is a list of the prompts to help inspire us. The order of the photos won’t matter.  MY CHOICE PROMPT – A Long Time Ago

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #104 – PROMPT – Long And Short Of It.  Posted is a rather long paragraph by Jiddu Krishnamurthy.  You need not get lost in the length. Just choose any three words and create your piece with the three chosen words as a base.  My Three Words:  Feeling Of Sacredness.

Sue Vincent Thursday Photo Prompt: Reaching #writephoto – Use the image below as inspiration to create a post on your own blog… poetry, prose, humour… light or dark, whatever you choose.

I remember the days of 

a long time ago before

the world became so busy

living in the chaos of noise

back when people were content

reaching for the simplicity of

the matinal Light filling

their souls with a feeling of sacredness

and a desire to bring that sacredness

to others that they may know

an awakening of abundant 

beauty of stillness in tranquility

generosity of heart towards 

others who ached in brokenness…

Yes, I miss those days and 

I pray that those of us whose

souls are filled in spiritual sacredness

will keep reaching to fill the 

lost and empty souls wrenching

in desperation to be love and accepted

not by the world, but in the Beloved.

MLMM Tale Weaver #237 – Weeds – This week consider the notion of weeds as your topic to write about.  What does it mean to you? The unwanted plants that grow in your garden? The irritating people in your life? Something others consider a pest but you think otherwise.  Go where the prompt leads you.

Maria Antonia Weekly 2019 Photography Challenge – Come join me, each Saturday, in posting a photo. There is a list of the prompts to help inspire us. The order of the photos won’t matter. In other words, you don’t have to start at the top and move toward the end. For this challenge, you may pick any prompt on the list and start with that.  MY CHOICE OF PROMPT: HIDDEN.

.

hidden are the weeds

that choke a living beauty

evil intentions

are working undercover

surprising its next victim

yet…beauty always triumphs

An Invitation To Faith – Choka Poem

The Choka (長歌 long poem) is:

  1. a narrative.
  2. syllabic. Composed of any number of couplets made up of alternating 5-7 onji (sound syllables) per line. In English we can only treat the onji as a syllable.
  3. unrhymed.
  4. concluded by a hanka, an envoy in the form of the waka, 31 onji or sound syllables in 5 lines with 5-7-5-7-7. “han” meaning repetition, the hanka is to summarize the Choka. The word tanka is often substituted for hanka or waka (they are all rooted in the same 31 syllable, 5 line form, their root seems to make them interchangeable with only subtle differences to separate them.)  Poetry Magnum Opus.

MLMM Sunday Writing Prompt – Train Ticket – For today’s prompt you are going on a train ride. Choose either the journey itself as your focus (a classic mystery/crime drama to solve for example) or the destination. The train need not be of this reality and therefore it can take you anywhere including the after life! As to how you came by the train ticket that too can have mysterious origins. 

train ticket arrives

from whence it came is unknown

intrigued to accept

ride is pre-reserved

date and time already booked

today, time is now

*

anxiously I hesitate

remember to breathe

destination is unknown

note with ticket says

board with faith don’t ask questions

again I pause, breathe

then step aboard waiting train

fear, not an option

train unseen by human eyes

*

unscabbed eyes awake

a new understanding dawns

solid foundation

that grew from a mustard seed

believing without seeing

Truly Awakened

Written In Response To:

V.J.’s Weekly Challenge #58:  Just When I Thought… – Life seldom unfolds in straight lines. It’s not necessary to repeat the prompt phrase, but this week let’s think about the times when life has turned an abrupt corner, or caught us off guard.  

Light Motiffs II Thursday Inspiration 14 -This week’s theme is fragile and the picture is below.

Thursday Inspiration

Just when I thought this heart

could not become any more fragile

the Hand that holds it breaks

this heart to shatter into depths

of a Love that I never knew

could be so rooted to contain…

Mitchell Falls - in the Kimberly region (northeast of Perth, kind of nowhere)

Loving and forgiving beyond

heights, lengths, and widths

I never desired to go beyond…

just when I thought is when

I became truly awakened.
