Lockdown Day 21

Today was another day of the lockdown. I finished my daily chores and raided the book closet. It contains some very old books,some of them my own. I found old Enid Blytons,Famous Fives and Secret Sevens Some yellowed with time,leafed pages turned and folded still in some places. It took me back to old times… Continue reading Lockdown Day 21

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.

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

Thursday photo prompt: Storm #writephoto

As I step inside the stony monolith atop the green hill, I am entranced. The dark grey clouds above seemed to echo its sombre appearance. Each stone has a story to tell. They are worn out for they have stood the brunt of time. Some have been ravaged by mother Nature. And some by the… Continue reading Thursday photo prompt: Storm #writephoto

The lucid aquamarine surf, Enthralled with Nature's hues, Gambolled in a merry mirth, Rising to crash in a symphony. The silvery surf on a… Continue reading Thursday Photo prompt:Clarity#writephoto

A Beacon ( A Haibun) The stony steps lined by a verdant gossamer of thin moss led to the teak panelled door of the house. Embedded in the pristine granite frame,it stood guard,a sentinel to love and life inside. The trellis lush with green foliage embellished its facade. Radiating a vernal bloom that was incited… Continue reading Colleen’s 2019 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 136 #PhotoPrompt

The cycle of life( a Haibun) As the pristine icy snow melted with the advent of spring, it gave birth to a vivacious and bubbly froth.The cerulean drops danced along the valleys,cascaded down mighty falls and waltzing in symphony with pebbled music. The pure manna rejuvenated the arid plains and infused life into the dried… Continue reading Thursday photo prompt: Yearning #writephoto
