The Daily Prompt : Carry

We think with our mind,

We think with our heart

And both appear to be

Such small parts

Of the whole body.

Small and sweet

And so very important ,

But what is amazing

Is the amount of baggage

We carry in them.

The past, the present and the future

Are always being carried around.

We are in the present,

We either think about the past

Or worry about the future,

And carry the burden

Along with us.

What a relief it would be,

If we could only

Live in the present.

But human nature,

Being what it is,

Carrying a lot of baggage

Seems but natural.

What would it be like,

If we were not to carry

It along with us?

Difficult to imagine. :))

The Daily Prompt : Carry

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.
