Listening in, and watching, quietly all the while, #MeToo whispered Mother Earth

The photo by the chest

Placed her photo on his chest as the coffin was closed before being lowered. Some stories are better left untold; some memories are better left untouched; some pictures better left unseen.

A Chaotic sense of order

via Daily Prompt: Chaotic

Its not as chilly as expected today… wow, look at the pile of leaves on the sidewalk… i guess fall is… looks like it might rain… hope there is not much work today when i get to… woah, why is that guy honking so much and driving like crazy…  why isn’t anybody messaging today… what camera should i buy… i sucked at badminton last week, what was i doing… what is…

Too random to make sense, isn’t it!!! well, thats how my brain works. it is a mess. One random thought at a time. sometimes, don’t even get to finish the chain of thought. Well, in a sense, i suppose thats how the brain on most of us works. it just wanders about switching topics in almost seconds. No wonder it’s ways are compared to the monkey leaping onto tree branches at random whims and fancies.

Recognising the pattern in the chaos is the challenge i suppose. or should i say making sense of the chaos and bringing order. Easier said than done, you say. couldn’t agree more. I’ve been staring at the blinking cursor for the past 5 minutes, and hardly have a cogent thought to put down. Hardly a surprise, i’d say though.

my brain is certainly no pre-defined meeting agenda or a post meeting minutes. it cannot think in bullet points unless told to do so. the random thoughts bombarding my brain are what make a world of possibilities inside my head a distinct likelihood. and the process of collating them and organising them is the challenge. thats what makes the writing process interesting.

any process, for that matter. how boring would it be to imagine the brain coming up with organised thoughts for a situation in life to which you seek a potential solution!!! or would it? may be for some people. Running low on battery.. whats that smell… would have been good if i had landed in Dubai during the day so it would’ve been fun to gaze through the window…

there it goes again… 🙂

Wow, it’s hot!!!

scorched

As the mid-summer tropical sun scorched the earth’s surface in full blaze, i stopped walking on the street for a second and looked up at it wondering, ‘There is no competition. What point are you trying to make!!!’

Words: daggers that can be sharp or blunt

via Daily Prompt: Argument

 “Is it too late to patch up now?”

Those words bringing back flashes of all the past feuds, ringing in his ears, each with a thump like only a death bed can.

For Moral or Worth

via Daily Prompt: Value

“Was it worth the effort?” asked my friend.

I just pointed to the homeless boy waltzing away, ecstatic, holding his little brother in one hand, food and money in the other.
