A serried tale

The serried twists and sharp turns, Ensheathed in a veiled canopy , That hides its dazzling sheen, From those that envy its resplendent allure, Unsurpassed, Untouched. It beckons you, Tantalising, Mocking that you can't you reach it, As you want it all the more. You just walk along in tremulous fear, Gingerly circumventing the folds,… Continue reading A serried tale

Thursday photo prompt: Serenity #writephoto

A Haibun The stony cliffs stared into the infinite cerulean expanse. The waves that seemed to roll in from faraway horizon moved with a rhythmic symphony.

Thursday photo prompt: Crescent #writephoto | Sue Vincent’s Daily Echo

In a night dark and deep lone stood a tree, Haunted by much melancholic depths, Its verdant branches standing proud, Paying obeisance to the silvery crescent. Welcoming the first light of dawn, Basking in its mystical hues, The dark silhouette on rolling meadows, Awaiting for the new sun to rise, That would rejuvenate its core.… Continue reading Thursday photo prompt: Crescent #writephoto | Sue Vincent’s Daily Echo

I have written an etheree Traversing alone through woods dark and deep, Staring at infinite lines of fate, Running far but never to meet, Things of the past now had been, What shall unfold will be, I simply trudge on, New trails unknown, A sojourn, Endless, So!

Thursday photo prompt: Clouded #writephoto

The valley yonder, It left me entranced, Rolling into aeons of unknown, Encompassing, Embracing the tiny wisps,prickly bushes, Holding the tall trees, In a cloistered niche. Selfless and serene, It just merged into the majestic peaks, Its proud vanguard, That rose to meet the misty clouds, Thirsting to caress the lush lands, Envious of its… Continue reading Thursday photo prompt: Clouded #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

Thursday photo prompt: Darkness #writephoto

A dark canopy, Shadowing the verdant lands, A gentle diaspora, Rolling placidly into an infinite horizon. The dark shadows, They cast an eerie spell. But, Dogged rays of hope, Burst through the dark clouds, Lighting the dark lands, Harbinger of solace. As tides turn, The clouds would blow away, Dispelling the shadowed gloom. The dazzling… Continue reading Thursday photo prompt: Darkness #writephoto
