Thursday photo prompt: Veiled #writephoto

A haze, A misty veil, Enshrouded the verdant valley. The stony peaks, The angry sentinels, They hid their treasures, From ravaging hands. Hands that they had fed, Their wanton avarice, Consuming all. Lands now fallow, Weeping, And desolate. The misty veil, It took pity, Wrapping the wailing diaspora, In its cloaked embrace.

Thursday photo prompt: Guardian #writephoto

A Haibun The stony cliffs stared into the infinite cerulean expanse. The waves that seemed to roll in from faraway horizon crashed into the stones with a rhythmic symphony. The silvery rolling crests dazzled in the bright sun. The tiny blossoms on the cliff waltzed in the gentle breeze to their music. Nature was at… Continue reading Thursday photo prompt: Guardian #writephoto

Thursday photo prompt: Painted #writephoto

A wooden bridge, It led to nowhere, Deep into the verdant bloom, Enigmatic, Mysterious. It dared the passerby, To tread on the shaky bridge, As the lilies looked on nonchalantly, Smirking, Mocking the traveller, For the secrets of the forest, None could find, Nature's cache safely hidden, For unknown hands, They had defiled many thickets.… Continue reading Thursday photo prompt: Painted #writephoto

Thursday photo prompt: Dance #writephoto

A Haibun The endless expanse stretched all around the horizon. Not a soul was in sight. The grass had dried up to give the land a golden hue. The patch of green marked the path leading to the amphitheatre that was encircled by the stony columns withered by travails of time but standing proud. They… Continue reading Thursday photo prompt: Dance #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)

Thursday photo prompt: Bells #writephoto

A haibun The vernal bloom was in full blossom. The air was fresh and crisp with a heady fragrance all around. The tall trees majestically loomed up high to meet the blue skies and watched happily the earth below lush and pristine. The base of dark brown trunks was ensheathed in a colourful carpet of… Continue reading Thursday photo prompt: Bells #writephoto

The circle of life- (a Haibun)

The rolling verdant expanses offer an infinite panorama of life. The valley is lush with dancing blossoms. They are imbued with warm colours of Mother Nature. Tall pines soar high majestically paying an obeisance to the blue skies. The denizens of the blue canopy above traverse down to lend their colours to the world below.… Continue reading The circle of life- (a Haibun)
