I have written an etheree Traversing alone through woods dark and deep, Staring at infinite lines of fate, Running far but never to meet, Things of the past now had been, What shall unfold will be, I simply trudge on, New trails unknown, A sojourn, Endless, So!

Fate,an enigma, An answer untold, Unforseen and unexpected. We wish to chart our own paths, But the paths we tread on, Preordained. We strive to acquire, But the mighty hand chooses all, It decides to dole out what it deems fit. You rave and rant, But it just shrugs off the rancour, With a haughty… Continue reading Fate
I have written a Gogyohka on the theme " The Day After." The day after is an unknown enigma Future blown away in life's tempest Swirled and swept in the whirlwind You have no hold What is ordained shall prevail.

A dark haze, Clouds of vicious smoke, Spiralling, Waltzing to an ominous tango, Clawing its fangs deep down, Scavenging into a tormented soul. The mystic soul, Lost, Bewildered, Hurt, It wails. Seeking solace, Searching for a beacon bright, That would lighten up , Those dreary paths. Fallen into a dark abyss, It trudges along wearily,… Continue reading A Haze

You leave pieces of yourself, Scattered everywhere you frequent. And your memories are suspended in time. Lives that you have brushed up against, Now live with an imprint of you, Firmly trapped in their mind. Time may change you, But your memory not. You leave the steps in the sands of time, And you come… Continue reading Shadows
Vague are the vagaries of life, They tell us To silence us. They show us To blind us. They lead us To mislead. Vague emotions And nameless turmoils, Make you fall in the vortex of life. The cauldron of life Brims over With life emoticons All over.
Unexpected are the ways of life, It's brethren are known but unknown. You assume to forget, You walk to get lost in the life's maze. The travesty of life, It's turns and twists, Consume you, Overwhelm you. But a brave heart you are! You sleigh the unforseen demons, Surfing on the fortuitous furore, You reach… Continue reading Unexpected Ways
Tides charm away storms, As you surf the sea of life, Steering away harm. Via: https://ronovanwrites.com/2020/02/03/weekly-haiku-poetry-prompt-challenge-291-charmharm/
Life, A game, Some sixes, And some sevens, On rolling the dice. As you climb the ladders, But to reach where you started. Taming the tempestuous tides, Windy sails tenaciously tethered, As sanguine hope becomes this life's anchor.
