I can see the sun rise…

I can see the sun rise, Over the rooftops of my town, But the darkness lingers in the woods behind me, Dripping from broken branches in ways that only darkness could. The peace has long fled my being, I can feel the talons of darkness that grip my heart. The sun warms the waking world,… Continue reading I can see the sun rise…

Dance in the dark

I can see the moon over the meadow, As you twirl into my arms, We'll dance in the dark, And race the rivers where they run. For you and I fill find a place, Beneath a blanket made of stars, To start afresh. When the dawn is almost upon us, We will find our footsteps… Continue reading Dance in the dark

A Rivulet

The rivulets of joy flowed down, Meandering down the stony bed. Striking the rough cobbles, The bubbling brooks danced all the more, As they created a symphony that resonated around. The rivulets of joy deluged the barren being, Infusing a life new, Nothing seem to dam the tide, It was a surge of ecstasy, It… Continue reading A Rivulet

Shadows have remained

You leave pieces of yourself, Scattered everywhere you frequent, And your memories are suspended in time. Every life that you have brushed up against, Lives with an imprint of you, That is trapped in their mind. Time may change you, But your memory forever remains the same. It's like leaving each place, That you have… Continue reading Shadows have remained

A Tale

Two lonely souls, Together They created, The oasis of love, The Eden of mirth, The Isle of ecstasy, The fountain of hope. Together They did, That alone they could not.

We are so much swallowed in the life's vortex of prioritising and benchmarking that we forget what… Continue reading The Friday Reminder for #SoCS & #JusJoJan 2021 Daily Prompt – Jan. 16th

Eccentric

Life with its eccentric elan, Sends you in a tizzy. You pause to catch your breath, But you get swept in its whirlwind. You want to stand and stare, But it refuses to let you procrastinate. The tornado blazes through, Blowing you in circles wide, Sweeping you of your feet, As you get tossed and… Continue reading Eccentric

Image Credit: ©2020 Padre Ramblings I have written a Gogyohka trying to portray the lockdown life nowadays. 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)
