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: Tokens #writephoto

I have written a haibun on the prompt. The grassy patch was a nondescript part of the wild green that dotted the landscape. If you would pass by,you would hardly give it a second look. But if you would give it a careful perusal,you will find a hidden artist working his magic on Nature's canvas.… Continue reading Thursday photo prompt: Tokens #writephoto

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

I have written a Shadorma on the photo prompt Sea of life, Absorbs all you give, Stormy surf, Eroding, Stony cliffs leaving its mark, Returns back debris. Via : https://colleenchesebro.com/2020/07/21/colleens-2020-weekly-tanka-tuesday-poetry-challenge-no-187-photoprompt/

Thursday photo prompt: Vista #writephoto

Nature's blitzkrieg, An idyllic oasis, A piece of heaven, A utopia on my strife torn planet! Rolling meadows, Wisps of lush green grass, Waltz gently as the winds sweep. The infinite horizon, A tranquil panorama, Pristine and untouched. Cloistered by the blue canopy, The marauding hands, The avaricious souls, They could not defile, The divine… Continue reading Thursday photo prompt: Vista #writephoto

Thursday photo prompt: Veiled #writephoto

A haze, A misty veil, Enshrouded the verdant valley. The stony peaks, The angry sentinels, They hid their treasures, From ravaging hands. Hands that they had fed, Their wanton avarice, Consuming all. Lands now fallow, Weeping, And desolate. The misty veil, It took pity, Wrapping the wailing diaspora, In its cloaked embrace.
