Masks, Anyone?

MASKS  OFF: We’re less than a week away from Halloween! If you had to design a costume that channeled your true, innermost self, what would that costume look like?

Am kind of allergic to masks, you know, in life,

In a mom or son, dad or daughter, husband or wife!

But the daily prompt today says I must strive

Channelize my inner self and thus feel alive!


Masking my joys or sorrows or (as many will vouch)

My anger,  never comes easy, in the chair or on the couch

I generally mean what I say and say what I mean,

Habits at this age, are pretty difficult to wean!


Halloween I have not partaken wherever I’ve been

Familiar I am only through books and the screen.

Masks best left alone, to wear or use, I am never keen

Even writing about them you can see, is not my scene!


But choose one I must as DP says no, sorry

Here is one – woman in all her powerful glory

Ancient India worshiped her as “Shakti” *

Source of all energy, she inspires “Bhakti”! **

* Shakti – Cosmic Energy / Power

** Bhakti – Devotion

Maa durga images
Maa Durga or Goddess Durga The supreme source of Power and Knowledge

Happy weekend, folks!!!
