Just hold on

Life a melange, A pot -pourrie of love, Subtle and soft, Fragrant calm, Absorbing, That rippled fear, That tearful torrent, That maelstrom of emotions. Infusing that mindless lacuna, Filling it to brim, With joyful repertoire. Dark times, Shaded shadows, Gloomy hopes, Subverting, Dashing all life inside. Then, Only then, We look inside, Seeking solace, From… Continue reading Just hold on

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “more.” Start your post with the word “more.” More you hide, More the moroseness. Open the doors of your heart, As the life knocks aloud.

Thursday photo prompt: Darkness #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

Thursday photo prompt: Glisten #writephoto

Sun sets, Rays Amber hued, Golden Beauty fleeting, It rises to shine more brightly, Again. Tides charm away storms, As you surf the sea of life, Drifting on the sands of time, You find its dazzled halo behind, A glistening trail, Permeating a fiery hope. Via: Writephoto

A strange world

Strange is this new world! Anonymous fear, All pervading, A fragile trust, Wary trepidation, Lonely roads, Shuttered and desolate, Caged minds, Barred souls, Afar. Bonhomie vanished, No festive fire, A melancholic moroseness, A pallid gloom. As we pray for days of yore, When life was a celebration, A momentous jubilation.

Thursday photo prompt: Secret #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

Hope(A double etheree)

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)

A Haze

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

Thursday photo prompt: Otherworldly #writephoto

Life, A cobbled clutter, Lost in its maze, You stumble and fall, Sharp edges grazing your soul. But, A brave heart, You trudge along, Till you find new openings, A stony orifice of hope, Unveiling a new kaleidoscope, Of places unseen, Of places not been, An enigma beyond the stars, An endless quest of desires… Continue reading Thursday photo prompt: Otherworldly #writephoto
