She is all light and wonder

She thought that she was without beauty, Like a candle devoid of a spark, So she set her feelings on fire, And prayed that it would be her salvation. She was like a river that had run dry, So she filled those cracks with the sweet sound of her laughter, And a flood of tears… Continue reading She is all light and wonder

#TANKA TUESDAY Weekly #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 214, #THEMEPROMPT

This month’s theme is: Dreams I have attempted a Reverse Etheree. A dark canopy of glittering stars, A silvery beam of moonlight trail, Falling on mind’s dusky expanse, It forms a luminous bridge. A viaduct of hope, Transient and fiery, Infusing life, Into dreams, Till now, Dead. Via: Tanka Tuesday

Finding Home

Finding peace in tiny places, Small iota of joy savoured, Finding love in things that mattered, A gush of zeal, Flowing in a tranquil tandem, With life's rhythm, A calm repose, Unbroken in stormy tempest, Not uprooted in windy gales, For a soul satiated, It finally finds its home!

Thursday photo prompt: Deeper #writephoto

When the world crumbles, And you stand at the precipice, Staring deeper into the gorges around, A dark abyss. You just walk along in tremulous fear, Gingerly circumventing the folds, The sharp edges bite into your soul, Ripping at its core. A slip here and down you go, A cascade into an empty void. Your… Continue reading Thursday photo prompt: Deeper #writephoto

#TANKA TUESDAY #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 212 #SYNONYMSONLY

I have written an Etheree and my synonyms for Loose and Tight are Easy and Strong. Road Less Taken Road, Cobbled, Less taken, Pits unruly, Catch you unawares, Shaded by tall dark trees, Ominously glaring down, Even a strong soul shudders deep, Choosing to walk on path not easy, Far to the enigmatic lands unseen.… Continue reading #TANKA TUESDAY #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 212 #SYNONYMSONLY

#TANKA TUESDAY #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 211, #Abhanga, or #PoetsChoice

In the flames( an Abhanga) Deep Red Burning embers sizzle me to the core stoking dead sparks to fore as numb soul melts. Those Melting icicles dousing the fiery flame that crackles to proclaim bright life again. .

#JusJoJan prompt the 24th – “Trigger”

The golden shaft, Mesmerised the blue expanse, Teased the grey waters with myriad hues, Luminescent, the seas lit up. As it converged,it radiated sheen, The sheen that showed the way, The way to heaven, Heaven where the darkness was dispelled. The infinite palette dashed with fiery orange, Seemed to take solace in the the placid… Continue reading #JusJoJan prompt the 24th – “Trigger”

#JusJoJan 23 & #SoCS – From

Life can be as radiant as sunbeams, It can be a salty downpour of emotions, From dewy moist eyes, Cascading down your cheeks. You will only learn how to be buoyant, When you have drowned in the sea of sorrows. Life can teach you hard lessons, But even the dark hued roses, Need the warm… Continue reading #JusJoJan 23 & #SoCS – From
