Colleen’s 2020 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 170, #ThemePrompt

This week's theme prompt by Sally Cronin is Night Sky. I have written an etheree. Sky anointed with a mystical hue, Haunted by its melancholic depths, A night dark and deep in the void, But embellished and adorned, The silvery beacon, Its luminous glow, Showing you way, In Darkness, All way, Home.

What Day is it Anyway? Friday, March 27th, 2020

Today was day Three. I got up a bit late and did my morning prayers. Catching up with friends over WhatsApp over a cup of tea cheered me up. We sent each other stupid emojis and laughed. It was an emoji battle,silly and childish. But everyone wanted a diversion, a reprieve from all that was… Continue reading What Day is it Anyway? Friday, March 27th, 2020

Thursday photo prompt: Crown #writephoto

What you sow, You shall reap, They said. I worked hard, Day and night, All rolled into one. I harvested the fruits, Mellow and juicy, A luscious aroma, It spread in my life. But, I lost my way, Deceived in the maze, The bare stalks laughed at me, Swaying merrily, Spread in the vast expanse.… Continue reading Thursday photo prompt: Crown #writephoto

A Prayer( a haibun)

We all await with a baited breath afraid and full of fear. Awaiting the apocalypse,it all seems to be happening somewhere far- fetched. It is more likely a movie of doomsday playing. We had read about plagues and epidemics in past times. It could not happen to us. We are the millennials,the natives of all… Continue reading A Prayer( a haibun)

Cobbled Clutter

Full of adamant edifices, They never let us go! We fall, We rise, Only to fall again. Traversing rough terrains, Clanging on the cobbled clutter, Life goes on.

Thursday photo prompt: Lambent #writephoto

One day these dark clouds, These dark clouds that overcast my sky, My sky that is no longer blue. Blue overwhelms my soul, My soul yearns for the sunny warmth, Sunny warmth with its irridiscent hues, Hues that no longer colour my life. My life awaits the day, The day the sun will shine again.… Continue reading Thursday photo prompt: Lambent #writephoto

Life- story

A life, A story, You write some , Erase some. You wish to draw some, But gusts of stormy tempest, It blows the grains away. You look on. And you still draw, Small lines, Broken lines, Anonymous, Indistinct. Someday, Those lines would merge, An amalgam of all the broken ones, And a masterpiece borne. For… Continue reading Life- story
