Day 5. It's another day today. It seems like one day is rolled into another. A routine has been set and the work goes on. As I sit down to think and contemplate,I wonder where it will end. People are saying a surge is inevitable. It is like we are waiting for the apocalypse to… Continue reading Lockdown Day 5
This week's theme prompt by Sally Cronin is Night Sky. I have written an etheree. Sky anointed with a mystical hue, Haunted by its melancholic depths, A night dark and deep in the void, But embellished and adorned, The silvery beacon, Its luminous glow, Showing you way, In Darkness, All way, Home.

Today was Day 4. Not much change in daily routine. Doing daily things took most of time leaving me bone tired. Rested and then flipped through some old magazines. The count seems to rise each day leaving one scary. The sparrows are twittering and cuckoo sang a few times. And the crows have gone more… Continue reading What Day is it Anyway?

A Haibun The vast empty moorland extended into miles of lush greenery, virgin pristine forests. The rising rays of the sun warm pink seemed to blend into the misty moorlands,a melange of heavens and earth. The entire diaspora was in harmony. There was no one to disrupt the ecstatic peace. Lonely are lands now, Yet… Continue reading Thursday photo prompt: Wistful #writephoto
Today was day Three. I got up a bit late and did my morning prayers. Catching up with friends over WhatsApp over a cup of tea cheered me up. We sent each other stupid emojis and laughed. It was an emoji battle,silly and childish. But everyone wanted a diversion, a reprieve from all that was… Continue reading What Day is it Anyway? Friday, March 27th, 2020

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.
One day these dark clouds, These dark clouds that overcast my sky, My sky that is no longer blue. Blue overwhelms my soul, My soul yearns for the sunny warmth, Sunny warmth with its irridiscent hues, Hues that no longer colour my life. My life awaits the day, The day the sun will shine again.… Continue reading Thursday photo prompt: Lambent #writephoto
A life, A story, You write some , Erase some. You wish to draw some, But gusts of stormy tempest, It blows the grains away. You look on. And you still draw, Small lines, Broken lines, Anonymous, Indistinct. Someday, Those lines would merge, An amalgam of all the broken ones, And a masterpiece borne. For… Continue reading Life- story
A slumber, Her Time now stood still, Dreams all doused. Untold fears, Dark shadows inside, Mirth shaded, Her salty tears danced, A laugh lost.
