Time stood still, Frozen in the tall,stony edifice, That stood as a vanguard, Overlooking the sun baked roofs, Cloistered in a verdant lush, Pristine, Untainted by Time's bounty. An idyllic haven, A tranquil oasis, Its celestial serenity, Radiating and reflecting, Shining in the cerulean expanse. My soul, A lonely Island in the vast diaspora, Looks… Continue reading Thursday photo prompt: Fantasy #writephoto
A dark canopy, Shadowing the verdant lands, A gentle diaspora, Rolling placidly into an infinite horizon. The dark shadows, They cast an eerie spell. But, Dogged rays of hope, Burst through the dark clouds, Lighting the dark lands, Harbinger of solace. As tides turn, The clouds would blow away, Dispelling the shadowed gloom. The dazzling… Continue reading Thursday photo prompt: Darkness #writephoto
The silver key, Etched sublime, By Life's fine hand, A custodian to Life's cache, That is weathered, Seasoned by Time's travails. Shielding her inner self, From the stormy tempests, And wailing gales, For it would not unlock the door, That opened into the caverns of her heart. It hid the dazzling beauty inside, It shaded… Continue reading Thursday photo prompt: Secret #writephoto
A wooden bridge, It led to nowhere, Deep into the verdant bloom, Enigmatic, Mysterious. It dared the passerby, To tread on the shaky bridge, As the lilies looked on nonchalantly, Smirking, Mocking the traveller, For the secrets of the forest, None could find, Nature's cache safely hidden, For unknown hands, They had defiled many thickets.… Continue reading Thursday photo prompt: Painted #writephoto
Light, Vibrant, Spreading love, Now cloistered deep And Melancholic, It Fluttered in fury, Darting at the grey cover, Slipping through tiny crevices, The icicles now with a dull sheen A Suffusion of warmth so radiant. Leaving a fiery trail on dreary grey, The errant ray full of lively spright, A cavalcade of surging hope, Flaunting… Continue reading Hope(A double etheree)
I have written an Etheree on this beautiful prompt by Jude, from Tales Told Different. She sang to the tune of falling raindrops, Trying to fight darkness with her light, Her silent thunder rained down love, Her dazzling eyes dispersed gloom, Unrestrained and fiery, Rejunevating, Infusing life , Into all, Blooming, Life.

A shiny gift of surreptitious love, Anonymously sent a dark day, A catchy, meticulous bow, Tying up all the loose ends, Sericeous and vibrant, The starry facade, Sheathing bounties, Sent unknown, Spreading, Love.
The rolling verdant expanses offer an infinite panorama of life. The valley is lush with dancing blossoms. They are imbued with warm colours of Mother Nature. Tall pines soar high majestically paying an obeisance to the blue skies. The denizens of the blue canopy above traverse down to lend their colours to the world below.… Continue reading The circle of life- (a Haibun)
A song, Euphonious, Lilting,stirring,blending, Spreading tranquility unfeigned, A bliss.
Soulful melody through whispering trees, Luscious notes reverberating through, Infusing into my deep core, Redolent with love unbound, Seeping into cold veins, An ambrosial rythm, Full of sweet love Icicles, Melted, A Bliss, Deep.
