The Daily Prompt : Flow

Flow of the river
From its source
To its end,the ocean,
Is very like our life
Which has a beginning
And an end.
We begin from something known
To that end
Which is definite and unknown.
Flowing on its way
Many rivulets join the river
And become one with it.
Our life too flows on
And on the way
Many people and experiences
Become a part of our life
And we move on together.
Till that end which is a must.
The river flows on
Giving life to much
That is part of our planet.
Our life too moves on
It would indeed be a blessing
If just our being there
Makes a difference
To some if not to many.
Our life and the river
Flow from beginning to the end
The end, where one
Becomes a part of a whole.

By Lakshmi Bhat

I am a person who believes there is not enough darkness in the world to extinguish the light of a small candle. We live in a small place in South India. I love reading, blogging, stitching, traveling, photography, listening to people and many other things which make life so very nice and interesting. Blogging is a fun experience, it has brought me into contact with people in different parts of the world and it is good to read about their everyday life. In spite of the differences there is a sameness which is fascinating. I have learnt and am learning something everyday. I have learnt to write haikus. I enjoy combining the thought and the number of syllables. I have always read books and I was happy to write short fiction. I had thought I would not be able to do so. Stream of Consciousness and photo challenges are fun too. Yes, there is so much in life that is sad and that hurts us. Many a time I wonder why life is so unfair to so many. We all have problems in life but the problems of many seems unbearable. This makes me feel so helpless. It is not possible to help everyone but we can do our bit, we can do something to help some in whatever way we can. I go to the Home for the Mentally challenged in our campus twice a week. I have been going there since 2011. The members are an important part of my life. The Covid has made it difficult for me to go there regularly. There have been many challenges in life and we have faced them with a positive approach. Our grandson and granddaughter have made life so much more richer.
