Reena’s Exploration Challenge – 82

Reena’s Exploration Challenge – 82


Reena’s Rules:


There is no restriction on the format or the length of the piece. It just has to be your reflection on the prompt from the core.

Write a post on your blog, and link it up with here with a pingback, or copy-pasting the blog link in Comments.

I eagerly await your responses.


I am not a fatalist. I’m not obsessed with darkness. Yet, a landmark development in astronomy this week inspires me to remain on the periphery of the theme, but not get sucked inside.

See if you can explore the science, give it a new twist, write a fairy tale or fables around it, or give it a totally new meaning. Black holes do not exist only in space. Many of us have those in our minds, when we cut ourselves off from the world.

Black Space

By Teresa Smeigh 2019

There is black space in my head.

Some things are better left unsaid.

Childhood memories leave a hole.

Making it hard to keep control.

There’s no shame in needing help.

Go grab yourself a book on self-help.

Help is available with therapy.

Or grab some pills both for a fee.



Advocate for mental health and invisible illnesses, also a devout Christian
