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

Thursday photo prompt: Tokens #writephoto

I have written a haibun on the prompt. The grassy patch was a nondescript part of the wild green that dotted the landscape. If you would pass by,you would hardly give it a second look. But if you would give it a careful perusal,you will find a hidden artist working his magic on Nature's canvas.… Continue reading Thursday photo prompt: Tokens #writephoto

Thursday photo prompt: Fantasy #writephoto

Time stood still, Frozen in the tall,stony edifice, That stood as a vanguard, Overlooking the sun baked roofs, Cloistered in a verdant lush, Pristine, Untainted by Time's bounty. An idyllic haven, A tranquil oasis, Its celestial serenity, Radiating and reflecting, Shining in the cerulean expanse. My soul, A lonely Island in the vast diaspora, Looks… Continue reading Thursday photo prompt: Fantasy #writephoto

"Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “spot.” Write whatever image the word “spot” invokes."

Thursday photo prompt: Vista #writephoto

Nature's blitzkrieg, An idyllic oasis, A piece of heaven, A utopia on my strife torn planet! Rolling meadows, Wisps of lush green grass, Waltz gently as the winds sweep. The infinite horizon, A tranquil panorama, Pristine and untouched. Cloistered by the blue canopy, The marauding hands, The avaricious souls, They could not defile, The divine… Continue reading Thursday photo prompt: Vista #writephoto

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 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)
