Saturday Six Word Story Prompt- Past
Prompt for Week #79 (Jun 26, 2021 – Jul 2, 2021)

Past

“Present cannot fade away the past”.

It doesn’t matter, why, what, whom, how you have been trying to ignore your past. But, it will never detach your strings unless or until you won’t care about them. SIMPLE !!

” Past crystals, nurture along with present”.

It doesn’t matter, how long you have been absorbing your pain. But, remember it was always evolving and growing within your aura day by day, year by year.

P.S : Got inspired from one of the Netflix trending Web series. 🙂

कितना मुश्किल है कुछ कहना …

Vinay kumar pandey

कितना मुश्किल है कुछ कहना
कुछ बातें किसी को बता देना
और उनका समझ जाना
सम्भवतः ऐसा कभी होता नहीं

चुप रहते तो भी सही था
पर अक्सर वे अर्थ बदल लेते हैं
इसीलिए सामंजस्य नहीं बन पाता
फिर भी लोग दूसरों से कह लेते हैं…

What do you See #87- 21 June,2021

Beyond the stroller
a beautiful woman walks
watching the baby

She likes wall painting,
stopped, read ” best gift is you”,
scribbled on the wall.

She looks into her baby
For her, best gift is her only
Daughter: life revolves.

Poetic form : Haiku series. It is a 3 line stanza each having 5/7/5 syllabus count.
Edited by Me 🙂

Written for Sajde’s “What do you See Challenge (#WDYS) .

5 Easy Ways to write a poem for Beginners

If you are searching for how to write a poem/ good poem for beginners then this article will surely help you. Here, you’ll learn 5 easy ways to write a poem for beginners.

Here, you'll learn 5 easy ways to write a poem for beginners.
  1. Express your thoughts: Pen down your feelings whatever it may be anger, love, furious, depression, regretful. Just pen it down in your flow on your diary or mobile notepad. Observe people and nature around you to amplify your inspiration.

  REMEMBER Poetry is a sign of creative and imaginative mind. Writing a poem is not about faking the emotions, it’s about the absorbing the emotions.

2. Read aloud: Once you write down your feelings on paper, now you have to read them again and again. You will get to know your mistakes by yourself, edit them such as grammatical mistakes, tenses and add more significant words which lead to our next point.

If you can add similes, alliteration, or rhymes that’s good for beginner’s level. But a poem can be written in free verse too, where there are no rules, rhyme schemes as compared to the challenging poetic forms.

3. Use of tools: For adding more significant words, you can search its synonyms at thesaurus or Google dictionary. Rhyming websites such as rhymingzone.com and rhymer.com can be very useful. I use these tools too.

There are numerous sites for haiku checker too- you can count your poems syllable if you experience difficulty in counting. I will share how to write “Haiku” and what I faced difficulty while writing haiku later on. If you want to know, comment and tell me on comment box. Try don’t to overuse the usage of rhyming words, sometimes it spoils the beauty of your poem. So, keep it simple and plain.

4. Connect with other poets: Once you scribble down your thoughts onto paper. It’s time to read other poets and writers. There are different platforms for the community of poets such as – tumblr.com, medium.com, Miraquill(formerly Mirakee), WordPress, Google Plus, Wattpad, Instagram. I read and connect with other poets/ writers at WordPress, Mirakee, and Instagram.

On instagram there are several popular poetry pages I follow such as ‘Her Heart Poetry’, ‘By Me Poetry’, ‘Poetry Foundation’, ‘Omypoetry’, ‘Unerase Poetry’.

WordPress helps me to connect with more like-minded people. Besides, Mirakee and other platforms are also best at their own.

5. Prompt Writing: After scribbling, connecting with people. It’s time for “Prompt Writing”. Prompt writing helps you to express your thoughts, imagination in more creative ways. Prompt can be anything it may be a few words, sentences, or images. It helps you to keep track of your writing path.

I know some writers who post prompts, weekly,daily on instagram and WordPress.

Some of them I follow on Instagram- Vaani by Shivani, Arshiya ki Shore, Nudrat, Anonymousxonly By Saakshi Agrawal, OlwenDaisy , Writersday.

WordPress- Some of you have already been familiar to the various prompts started by the Blogger in WordPress. Few of them are:

The Cafe- First Line Friday: June 18, 2021

Jim and his wife Eva have three sons and one daughter. All children are married and lived separately from their respective families. Jim lends his own house as collateral to one of his sons- Veer to help him in his business. But unfortunately, his business went down and, lost all his money.

First line friday, short fiction, bhagban, amitabh bacchan.

Now, Jim and Eva have no place to live. They hesitate to ask their children because of their arrogant behaviour. Finally, they summon up and asked to them. At last, it was decided that Jim and Era will stay bi-annually with their respective children. But the condition is Eva and Jim have to separately live with their children at different places across the country.

They treated them like some trash living at their house. After years of suffering from their children ill- behaviour, they decided to run away from their children’s home and meet at the common junction with all their luggage carry on.

They’re now staying at Jim’s friend Rayne owner of Cafe cum guest house. Jim loved to write on his typewriter. While sitting alone in the cafe, he spends all his day peacefully. He now spends more time in the cafe. He feels warm and homely at the cafe. Also, Rayne with his wife Samayra helps him a lot while with his griefs.

For Jim, “the cafe began to feel like his only real home”.

Dylan Hughes is the host of First Line Friday. This week’s prompt alternates with Jim’s Music Prompts, so make sure to check back next Friday for some musical inspiration. Thank you Dylan for hosting such a inspiration prompt challenge.

Line of the week : The cafe began to feel like her only real home.

Scary Nights by Hardik Manik

This poem is the result of the voices of the sleepless writer who struggle himself to attain a beauty sleep.

Hardik

inbound8295293526452273573.jpg

It was full moon night,
I was not having any fright.
Then my eyes go towards a sight,
Which was unusually bright.

I took courage to walk,
Sense like my legs are locked.
Something started climbing through my socks,
Lost it when heared shrieks of foxes.

Chanting mantras of Lord Rama,
It keeps away from karma.
Noises started amplifying from behind the rocks,
It was something out of the box.

The moment i turned around,
My face got a wound.
I was half blind,
Put pressure on my mind.

And I was saved,
Now I awake.
Mum slapped me as I was getting late,
This nightmare really increased my heart-rate.
