Day 14 - N (A to Z Challenge) and Day 16 - Life in Parallels (Napowrimo)

Day 14 AtoZ Challenge

Art and affirmative alliteration for Day 14. The intention is to reach out to young girls in specific and everyone in general who need to hear some positive and empowering affirmations each day. Just a humble alliterative effort. I wish we could all inspire each other everyday, place a helping hand, a shoulder to rest for a while, embrace to overcome the each other's pain, ease with laughter and a extend a bit of company to one another. In short, empower one another.

All my art works of AtoZ challenge have been done in acrylic inks and coffee wash. Edited digitally.


Day 16 Napowrimo

night fell silently

across the whole expanse, stealthily

eyes wide open, i ran violently

until sweat streamed profusely

like i stood under a shower...

On second thoughts, adding a fun one too:

The elephant and the ant

Walked through the sand

The temple bells rang

They made their way and sang

Hymns, prayers and cymbals clang... of the poem has been removed to facilitate for future submission. Thank you for visiting.

Napowrimo prompt:

Because it’s Friday, today I’d like you to relax with the rather silly form called Skeltonic, or tumbling, verse. In this form, there’s no specific number of syllables per line, but each line should be short, and should aim to have two or three stressed syllables. And the lines should rhyme. You just rhyme the same sound until you get tired of it, and then move on to another sound. 

Skeltonic verse is a fun way to get some words on the page without racking your brains for deep meaning. It’s a form that lends itself particularly well to poems for children, satirical verse, and just plain nonsense.

This prompt was a bit easy on me this time. I actually came up with three short poems and finally decided to go with this one. Love the choices and variety of these everyday prompts.

The elephant and the ant is a colloquial/oral comic kind-of-series that we have regionally, around. There are many jokes based on the duo/pair.

Here, I would like to mention some blogs I have been following. There are some more which I shall share soon. We have reached mid-way of Napowrimo and though I find it difficult to visit all the blogs, I would like to name a few:
