A Haze

A dark haze, Clouds of vicious smoke, Spiralling, Waltzing to an ominous tango, Clawing its fangs deep down, Scavenging into a tormented soul. The mystic soul, Lost, Bewildered, Hurt, It wails. Seeking solace, Searching for a beacon bright, That would lighten up , Those dreary paths. Fallen into a dark abyss, It trudges along wearily,… Continue reading A Haze

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS March 21/2020

"Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “welcome.” Use it any way you’d like." I have written a Shadorma on our life nowadays.

Where

As the cannons roared, Balls of fire, Streaking the dark skies, Tainting my soil red. I wonder, Where the love went? I yearn for those days, When vernal bloom, Thawed the icy facades. When warmth seeped, Infusing life into cloistered cages. A playful gambol, A fragrant melody, It reverberated the land. And now! An eerie… Continue reading Where

Thursday photo prompt: Memory #writephoto

A Haibun I stand in a stony stupefied slumber on a lush verdant expanse of life. My feelings and emotions have crystallised and amalgamated into two massive frigid boulders that are made more callous and cold by the winter snow. They stand like unrelenting sentinels at my soul's door blocking out all memories. I see… Continue reading Thursday photo prompt: Memory #writephoto

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

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)
