A weathered face softly serene, A deep twinkle in hoary eye, That has seen much pain multiply As it basked in its dazzling sheen, Avoiding what it had foreseen, It landed in sea of turmoil, And never the one to recoil, Hoping against hope it so fought, All the dark dangers that were frought, Laughing… Continue reading Ronovan Writes Décima Poetry Challenge Prompt No. 6 (Eye).

A Haibun The endless expanse stretched all around the horizon. Not a soul was in sight. The grass had dried up to give the land a golden hue. The patch of green marked the path leading to the amphitheatre that was encircled by the stony columns withered by travails of time but standing proud. They… Continue reading Thursday photo prompt: Dance #writephoto
