Some rhyme, romance and a wee bit reason maybe, bear with me ?

Weekly Writing Challenge: 1000 Words


thousand words

A thousand words to write my dreams?

A thousand wings to make them fly?

Not really, I do not need that much

A song in my heart, maybe a thought too shy.


A thousand ways to tell a lie?

A thousand words to prove a truth?

Is life really that verbose?

That silence wouldn’t see me through?


A thousand colors to paint each day

A thousand stars to count each night

I want it all and more this time

Tarry a while my heart, before you take flight.


A thousand battles to be won within

A thousand more rage without

Some worth fighting, some not so much

A thousand moments of self doubt.


A thousand joys and then some more

A thousand sorrows with tears galore

Take your pick, live your life

For every moment lost, even a thousand wouldn’t suffice…


The challenge said a 1000 words for a given image, … these are mine.. less than a thousand but they are the ones that came to me when I looked at this image…

Author: Yours Truly, Pritha

Professionally have I OD'd on OD ( organizational development ) for over a decade and more . Personally, I am all about making the mundane a wee bit more meaningful and of course a lot more fun in the process. In the course, of course, I very often fall flat on my face, but the joy of getting up makes it worth the "trip" ! Visit, explore, and do write back what you thought, and why you will come back again or never ever; either way I am grateful you dropped by ! Am quite a scatterbrain which is synonymous with being a Saggittarian, so don't take me too seriously; I try not to :) on most of my sensible days. On "other" days, I have more than enough very very well meaning well wishers, who do that for me and land me safely back to earth ! What would I do without them I wonder ? And then I pause, and I often ponder. For all the times I haven't let them be, How on earth would they feel, they were saner than me? Arguably and not so humbly yours... Pritha PS: And yes.. a new mom at 41 is my new identity and I am writing a new chapter with my little girl one gurgle at a time...
