Day 3 – NaPoWrimo’2020 -Unity is Strength!

Published 06th April 2020 by viewsofpreethib

Day 3 – Today’s prompt (i.e on 3rd April’2020 -optional, as always) asks you to make use of our resource for the day. First, make a list of ten words. You can generate this list however you’d like – pull a book off the shelf and find ten words you like, name ten things you can see from where you’re sitting, etc. Now, for each word, use Rhymezone to identify two to four similar-sounding or rhyming words. For example, if my word is “salt,” my similar words might be “belt,” “silt,” “sailed,” and “sell-out.”

Once you’ve assembled your complete list, work on writing a poem using your new “word bank.” You don’t have to use every word, of course, but try to play as much with sound as possible, repeating sounds and echoing back to others using your rhyming and similar words.

10 Random words I chose from a Tarot Card bookforetold, venture, anxiety, bold, fulfilled, stubborn, triumph, stability, strength & attitude.

Words from Rhymezone are – length, health, silently, ability, untorn, told.

Unity is Strength!

In unity there is strength,
A famous saying at length,
Will people unite for sake of health?

In this hour of anxiety,
People are supporting each other silently,
There will be triumph, if everyone shows stability,
As God is testing each and everyone’s ability.

People displayed their unity being stubborn,
Whole India lit diya’s, candles & stood together untorn,
5th April’2020 will be history, nobody foretold,
As every person fought against corona virus being bold,
Stay home, stay safe was followed, our Prime Minister told!

Day 2 – NaPoWrimo’2020 – My Favourite Spiritual Place!

Published 05th April 2020 by viewsofpreethib


Day 2 – Today’s Prompt (2nd April’2020) – Our (optional) prompt for the day takes a leaf from Schuyler’s book, as it were, and asks you to write a poem about a specific place — a particular house or store or school or office. Try to incorporate concrete details, like street names, distances (“three and a half blocks from the post office”), the types of trees or flowers, the color of the shirts on the people you remember there. Little details like this can really help the reader imagine not only the place, but its mood – and can take your poem to weird and wild places.

 

My Favourite Spiritual Place!

The Spiritual centre is 6km away from my residence,
In the city centre, on the busiest road is the entrance,
The security welcomes with a smile taking attendance,
Flowers, ferns & feathers on the path, gives a feeling of angelic presence.

Beautiful interiors, comfortable sofa, elevator, reception, it isn’t an apartment,
On the 3rd floor, wide hall with posters of Master’s Spiritual messages,
A yellow wall with Master’s picture & peacock feathers besides it,
Sunlight on white marble floor, pleasing, loving, serene location.

Smoothing, aromatic incenses, veranda with greenery and seating’s,
On the duplex hall, meditation brings a mystic experience by Master’s blessings,
My soul craved to runaway & be in solace,
And I finally found my tranquil in the hour of heartache.

When they play Om Mani Padme hum, soul awakens,
Bruises of emotional, mental & soul body are attended,
Healing of the soul happens in a deep amazing level,
One would find oneself, in the true holy spiritual essence.

It’s a place that brings back love, hope, peace & happiness,
Yoga Vidya Pranic Healing Foundation Of Karnataka,
Is my favourite spiritual location!

Day 29- NaPoWriMo’18 – Suspicious Heart!

Published 29th April 2018 by viewsofpreethib

Day 29: And now for our daily prompt (optional, as always). Today, we’d like to challenge you to write a poem based on the Plath Poetry Project’s calendar. Simply pick a poem from the calendar, and then write a poem that responds or engages with your chosen Plath poem in some way.

OMG! I thought since it is the second last day of the month the prompts are gonna get easier just like the previous two days. However, this prompt not only came as a shock but this really did scare me. I did not think I can do today’s prompt. Seriously, my heart kept saying go with the prompt but my mind went on saying “No Preethi, just give up”. But finally I am listening to my heart and giving it a try. And the poem I chose for today’s prompt is “Child” by Sylvia Plath.

Child  by Sylvia Plath

Your clear eye is the one absolutely beautiful thing.
I want to fill it with color and ducks,
The zoo of the new

Whose names you meditate —
April snowdrop, Indian pipe,
Little

Stalk without wrinkle,
Pool in which images
Should be grand and classical

Not this troublous
Wringing of hands,
this dark Ceiling without a star.

My take on the poem based on today’s prompt poem is as below. The words in bold are the words I chose from the poem “Child” by Sylvia Plath. Hope I got the prompt right and did justice.

Suspicious Heart!

Your clear eye is so beautiful and charming,
Wish I knew the dreams and wishes behind it,
The heart of the new.

Day 21- NaPoWriMo’18 – Narcissus!

Published 22nd April 2018 by viewsofpreethib

Day 21: And now for our (optional) prompt. In her interview, Brim provides us with several suggestions for generative writing exercises, and we’d like to challenge to today to tackle her third one, which is based in the myth of Narcissus. After reading the myth, try writing a poem that plays with the myth in some way. For example, you could imagine that imagine the water is speaking to you, the narcissus flower. Or you could write a poem in which the narcissus berates the Kardashians for stealing their neurosis. Or a poem that comments on the narcissism of our time, i.e. beauty and body obsession, etc.

Narcissus!

He was famous for his beauty,
Gorgeous hot model in the industry,
He was on the top list for most wanted models,
For any product, ads, events he was the first option…
