Ronovan Writes Décima Poetry Challenge Prompt No. 51: (CAUSE) in the A rhyme line

A Life adrift without a cause, Dreams that were dear now gone awry, For luck always turns a blind eye, All well laid plans come to a pause, For life seems full of unseen flaws, Alone floated unmoored mired grain, Now washed bright in the falling rain, Effervescence of sparkling spray, Suffusing, it with a… Continue reading Ronovan Writes Décima Poetry Challenge Prompt No. 51: (CAUSE) in the A rhyme line

#WRITEPHOTO-RABBIT

Ariel,the tender Sprite had descended on the land of common natives to look out for goodness. Unseen and hidden in the verdant bush, it donned its pink glasses nosed with sharp whiskers. The glasses could see through all masquerades and pretentious charades and the sharp whiskers tingled on each stroke of goodness. But the Sprite… Continue reading #WRITEPHOTO-RABBIT

An errant ray

When darkness seeps in, And life seems to stop, A stagnant mesh, Clawing the soul, An errant ray, Defiant, Adamant, Pierces through the dark sheath, Leaving an opening, For wisp of hope, To blow away the dreary gloom. But, Not always, The tiny ray finds it way, It gets lost in the misty abyss, Absorbed… Continue reading An errant ray

Finding Home

Finding peace in tiny places, Small iota of joy savoured, Finding love in things that mattered, A gush of zeal, Flowing in a tranquil tandem, With life's rhythm, A calm repose, Unbroken in stormy tempest, Not uprooted in windy gales, For a soul satiated, It finally finds its home!

Thursday photo prompt: Deeper #writephoto

When the world crumbles, And you stand at the precipice, Staring deeper into the gorges around, A dark abyss. You just walk along in tremulous fear, Gingerly circumventing the folds, The sharp edges bite into your soul, Ripping at its core. A slip here and down you go, A cascade into an empty void. Your… Continue reading Thursday photo prompt: Deeper #writephoto

#TANKA TUESDAY #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 212 #SYNONYMSONLY

I have written an Etheree and my synonyms for Loose and Tight are Easy and Strong. Road Less Taken Road, Cobbled, Less taken, Pits unruly, Catch you unawares, Shaded by tall dark trees, Ominously glaring down, Even a strong soul shudders deep, Choosing to walk on path not easy, Far to the enigmatic lands unseen.… Continue reading #TANKA TUESDAY #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 212 #SYNONYMSONLY

#JusJoJan prompt the 26th – “Shutter”

Strange is this new world! Anonymous fear, All pervading, A fragile trust, Wary trepidation, Lonely roads, Shuttered and desolate, Caged minds, Barred souls, Afar. Bonhomie vanished, No festive fire, A melancholic moroseness, A pallid gloom. As we pray for days of yore, When life was a celebration, A momentous jubilation.

#JusJoJan prompt the 24th – “Trigger”

The golden shaft, Mesmerised the blue expanse, Teased the grey waters with myriad hues, Luminescent, the seas lit up. As it converged,it radiated sheen, The sheen that showed the way, The way to heaven, Heaven where the darkness was dispelled. The infinite palette dashed with fiery orange, Seemed to take solace in the the placid… Continue reading #JusJoJan prompt the 24th – “Trigger”

Hold your heartache to light, For the world needs to see, How it thrums with life, Despite how limp it may be.
