Long time ago

Winds whispered into my ears, The tales of time long ago, Reminding me of things, That were no more. I thought That I could leave it all behind, Nonchalantly surging ahead. But those tiny wisps, They kept floating back. I see my life barren, The sturdy trees of yonder, That blossomed with love to the… Continue reading Long time ago

A void( a senryu)

As your mind goes into vacuity,you are in a beleaguered state. Nothing makes sense as nothing goes in. It seems to have frozen or just gone numb. You go about with the humdrum monotony like a wound up robot. Feeling nothing for there is nothing to feel. Losing nothing for there is nothing to lose.… Continue reading A void( a senryu)

Thursday Photo prompt:Clarity#writephoto

Alone I stood, Stone hearted, Weathered by vagaries of time. Around me an enticing diaspora, Leaving me untouched. The canopy above, Suffused with warm blues, Sheathed me with a clouded grey. The lucid aquamarine surf, Enthralled with Nature's hues, Gambolled in a merry mirth, Rising to crash in a symphony. The silvery surf on a… Continue reading Thursday Photo prompt:Clarity#writephoto

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. Darkness shows you the way. Just… Continue reading A dark night

A quest (a Haibun)

She sat on the long wooden bench watching the people walking by. The doctors hurried to their OPD rooms in stiff shirts,the nurses masked and gloved in crisp uniforms hovering by. And the patients of all ages just watching stoic and maudlin. The aroma of the tantalising coffee from the kiosk mingled with the septic… Continue reading A quest (a Haibun)

Words unsaid(a nonet)

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)

Smouldering Sands

Smouldering sands, Scorching souls, Scalding hearts, Searing pain. Walking on those dreary paths, Seared with its fiery heat, You learnt, Learnt to forbear. Come what may, You trudge along. The fiery heat, It embalms you, Infusing in you a radiant strength, You jest with fiery wrath, Mocking at its incessant downpour. The angry droplets merely… Continue reading Smouldering Sands

As it soared high

A soul soared high, Bonds broken, An Ariel free, It waltzed to the notes, Its own. And denizens below, It watched them, Faces seen, Aeons ago, Now saying kind words, No longer in a surly tone. Maybe! They were glad to see it go. Goodies passed, Tables laid in bountiful, Dainty linen, Shining cutlery on… Continue reading As it soared high
