Looking inward

January 10, 2014 1 comment

Tell us about the experience of being outside, looking in — however you’d like to interpret that.
Photographers, artists, poets: show us OUTSIDE.

Sight, sound, smell, taste and touch
Mesmerised my being
I jumped from one to another
Confounded by conundrums

Everything was so scintillating
The gadgets, the brands, the food
I was bowled over
Lost in the world outside

Engaged in trivial pursuits
The mind cooked numerous thoughts
Chasing ephemeral joys
Obscuring its true nature

As I sat down in peace
A certain joy enveloped me
That no worldly joy can compare with
It was just bliss

I discovered myself
When perspectives changed
From inside out
To outside in

Write a story about yourself from the perspective of an object, thing, animal, or another person.
Photographers, artists, poets: show us PERSPECTIVE.

I was born in the year 2001. I am cold blooded.  I keep all your food, fruits, vegetables and drinks fresh for your consumption.

It is sometimes appaling how some people treat me without respect. They just bang my door. And the gluttons they keep opening me to see what I’ve got. They keep gobbling food from me. Come on folks – give me some respect!

I can turn water into nice square cubes that you people like to mix with your drinks. When you are tired and exhausted, I can recharge you with a chilling drink.

No – No – no – dear do not switch off the power. I cannot survive in hot, humid conditions. This kid is really naughty and gets on my nerves!

The wrinkles
Tired visage
I see an old woman

Beauty,  youth
exuberant charm
I see a young lady

Put yourself in others shoes
Delve deeper
Relook, rethink

Change your perspective
Discern, discriminate
Everyone sees through a different lens

Drop your baggage of  preconceived notions
Unlearn and unwind
And you will see the light
