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

My cloistered niche, Where I just… Continue reading The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Aug. 8/2020

Just hold on

Life a melange, A pot -pourrie of love, Subtle and soft, Fragrant calm, Absorbing, That rippled fear, That tearful torrent, That maelstrom of emotions. Infusing that mindless lacuna, Filling it to brim, With joyful repertoire. Dark times, Shaded shadows, Gloomy hopes, Subverting, Dashing all life inside. Then, Only then, We look inside, Seeking solace, From… Continue reading Just hold on

Ronovan Writes Décima Poetry Challenge Prompt No. 14 (BIRD) This week, it’s the A rhyme line.

"This week, I recommend going with a synonym," says Ronovan. I have used the word game as a synonym for bird. They made life an unruly game, Rules unbarred and broken, All scruples a mere token, Bohemian rise to fame, That put all goodness to great shame, Inside a ruthless streak to win, A defeat… Continue reading Ronovan Writes Décima Poetry Challenge Prompt No. 14 (BIRD) This week, it’s the A rhyme line.

"Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “check/cheque/Czech.” Use one, use ’em all, use ’em any way you’d like."

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
