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 1 – NaPoWrimo’2020 – My Life is like Water!

Published 04th April 2020 by viewsofpreethib

Day 1 – Today’s Prompt (given on 1st April’2020)- Today, however, I’d like to challenge you to write a self-portrait poem in which you make a specific action a metaphor for your life – one that typically isn’t done all that often, or only in specific circumstances. For example, bowling, or shopping for socks, or shoveling snow, or teaching a child to tie its shoes.

My Life is Like Water!

My life is like Water,
It flows in the direction as God alter,
With ups & downs, twists & curves, stagnant or wanders,

My life is like Water,
What goes in, is absorbed with matter,
It’s plain or colourful, sweet or bitter, thick or thinner, tasteless or spicier.

My life is like Water,
It changes like the nature,
Gloomy or happier, Harsh or kinder, soft or stronger, naive or wiser, clam or clamor.

My life is like Water,
It’s unpredictable yet predictable with an eccentric character,
Controlled & flowed by the crux of future!

Day 0 (EarlyBird) – NaPoWriMo’2020 – Hey Birdie!

Published 02nd April 2020 by viewsofpreethib

Day 0 – (Today’s Prompt) which was given on 31st March’2020) – An early-bird prompt, I’d like to invite you to write a poem about your favorite bird.


Hey Birdie!

Who’s there, hiding near my window,
Visiting me in the noon, with a mellow,
Oh! You gorgeous little feathered creature,
Chirping & flying around the creepers.

I whistle, trying to catch your attention,
You look here & there as you flutter,
Thanks to quaratine, I have a beautiful visitor,
Tiny long beaked birdie, one of god’s best creation.

Would you please mind to come a little closer,
Or could you please sit on my finger,
Can I take a selfie with you my dear?
As I can flaunt away being admired.

Hey birdie, would you visit me again tomorrow?
Shall I wait for you everyday near my window?
Can I sing & dance along with your mellow?
Would you bring back a smile on my face with a glow?

Day 15- NaPoWriMo’18- Evil Captain Hook – A Human!

Published 16th April 2018 by viewsofpreethib

Day 15: And now for our prompt (optional, as always). In her interview, Blake suggests writing a poem in which a villain faces an unfortunate situation, and is revealed to be human (but still evil). Perhaps this could mean the witch from Hansel & Gretel has lost her beloved cat, and is going about the neighbourhood sticking up heart-wrenching “Lost Cat” signs, but still finds human children delicious. Maybe Blackbeard the Pirate is lost at sea in an open boat, remembering how much he loved his grandmother (although he will still kill the first person dumb enough to scoop him from the waves).

Evil Captain Hook – A Human!

In the starry night,
He wanders,
With the other men,
Plotting for an avenge,
To kidnap Wendy and other children,

Day 7- NaPoWriMo’18 – Strength vs Vulnerability!

Published 07th April 2018 by viewsofpreethib

Day 7: Today’s (optional) prompt. In our interview, Kyle Dargan suggests writing out a list of all of your different layers of identity. For example, you might be a wife, a grandmother, a Philadelphian, a dental assistant, a rabid Phillies fan, a seamstress, retiree, agnostic, cancer survivor, etc.. These are all ways you could be described or lenses you could be viewed through. Now divide all of those things into lists of what makes you feel powerful and what makes you feel vulnerable. Now write a poem in which one of the identities from the first list contends or talks with an identity from the second list. This might turn out to be kind of a “heavy” exercise, emotionally, but I hope you will find the results enlightening.


Strength vs Vulnerability!

Who am I is the question,
Am I the Strength or Vulnerability,
Please somebody clear my confusion,
Help me come to conclusion, who is more powerful,
Both, as I see there is no difference…

DAY 6- NAPOWRIMO’18 – I Will Wait For You!

Published 06th April 2018 by viewsofpreethib

Day 6: Today’s prompt (optional, as always): We’d like to challenge you to write a poem that stretches your comfort zone with line breaks. That could be a poem with very long lines, or very short lines. Or a poem that blends the two. You might break to emphasize (or de-emphasize) sounds or rhymes, or to create a moment of hesitation in the middle of a thought. Looking for inspiration? You might take a look at this poem by Lorine Niedeckerthis poem by Stanley Kunitz, or this one by Amiri Baraka.

 

I will wait for you!

When our eyes looked into each other’s,
There was a connection so strange,
Hiding from everyone’s sight I tried looking at your eyes over and over again,
You didn’t notice,
You stood there so near yet so far making my heart so weak…

Day 30 – NaPoWriMo 2017 – “NaPoWriMo”

Published 01st May 2017 by viewsofpreethib

Day 30 – And finally, our final prompt – at least until next year! Today, I’d like to challenge you to write a poem about something that happens again and again (kind of like NaPoWriMo/GloPoWriMo). It could be the setting of the sun, or your Aunt Georgia telling the same story at Thanksgiving every single year. It could be the swallows returning to Capistrano or how, without fail, you will lock your keys in the car whenever you go to the beach.

NaPoWriMo

Year after year,
New Challenge in April,
New prompts for 30 days,
A new form of poem each day,
Due to NaPoWriMo Challenge.

DAY 27 – NAPOWRIMO 2017 – “Taste of Dahi Puri”

Published 27th April 2017 by viewsofpreethib

Day 27 – And last but not least, here’s our (optional) prompt! Many poems explore the sight or sound or feel of things, and Proust famously wrote about the memories evoked by smell, but today I’d like to challenge you to write a poem that explores your sense of taste! This could be a poem about food, or wine, or even the oddly metallic sensation of a snowflake on your tongue.

Taste of Dahi Puri!

Oh, my mouth is salivating,
On hearing the name of the dish,
To try the famous Indian snack, you wish…

Day 24 – NaPoWriMo 2017 – “Fight”

Published 24th April 2017 by viewsofpreethib

Day 24 – Last but not least, our (optional) daily prompt. Today, I challenge you to write a poem of ekphrasis — that is, a poem inspired by a work of art. But I’d also like to challenge you to base your poem on a very particular kind of art – the marginalia of medieval manuscripts. Here you’ll find some characteristic images of rabbits hunting wolves, people sitting on nests of eggs, dogs studiously reading books, and birds wearing snail shells. What can I say? It must have gotten quite boring copying out manuscripts all day, so the monks made their own fun. Hopefully, the detritus of their daydreams will inspire you as well!

Fight!

Sword & shield in hand,
The brave one has come to fight,
Against the weird snail-man outright,
On the white beast like a knight.
