Dancing feet fell silent Bottles no longer clanged They hung adroitly above Tempting none in their aplomb Lush green leaves having fun.

A Prayer( a haibun)

We all await with a baited breath afraid and full of fear. Awaiting the apocalypse,it all seems to be happening somewhere far- fetched. It is more likely a movie of doomsday playing. We had read about plagues and epidemics in past times. It could not happen to us. We are the millennials,the natives of all… Continue reading A Prayer( a haibun)

As others won laurels, I was awarded titles, A plethora of names, And the subject of so many memes, And… Continue reading Wednesday Workout#1# 2 Jan,2020.

A dark night

A night dark and deep, Haunted by melancholic depths, Lone stood a tree, Its barren branches, Standing proud. For the crescent moon, Arched amidst the arid branches, Anointed them with a mystical hue. Embellished and adorned, The silvery beacon, It showed many lost souls, A weary way to redemption.

These words are all I have now for you, You will find pieces of my soul, Each word a chapter of life, A syllabic deluge, An ardent torrent, But all unsaid Safely cached, Unsent, Dead. Many a time we want to communicate our thoughts,our feelings with those dear to us. But when we come face… Continue reading Words unsaid(a nonet)
