When life throws a tantrum, Raving and ranting, Bubbling a cauldron of angst, Spouting a vented fury, I panic and fret, As all goes for a toss! And I let out a big sigh, And simply let the tempests blow. Lightings shall crack the dark sky, As thunders rage across, Ripping across the dusky darkness,… Continue reading Life’s Rant
You leave pieces of yourself, Scattered everywhere you frequent. And your memories are suspended in time. Lives that you have brushed up against, Now live with an imprint of you, Firmly trapped in their mind. Time may change you, But your memory not. You leave the steps in the sands of time, And you come… Continue reading Shadows
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
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
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

Light, Vibrant, Spreading love, Now cloistered deep And Melancholic, It Fluttered in fury, Darting at the grey cover, Slipping through tiny crevices, The icicles now with a dull sheen A Suffusion of warmth so radiant. Leaving a fiery trail on dreary grey, The errant ray full of lively spright, A cavalcade of surging hope, Flaunting… Continue reading Hope(A double etheree)
A dark haze, Clouds of vicious smoke, Spiralling, Waltzing to an ominous tango, Clawing its fangs deep down, Scavenging into a tormented soul. The mystic soul, Lost, Bewildered, Hurt, It wails. Seeking solace, Searching for a beacon bright, That would lighten up , Those dreary paths. Fallen into a dark abyss, It trudges along wearily,… Continue reading A Haze
A shiny gift of surreptitious love, Anonymously sent a dark day, A catchy, meticulous bow, Tying up all the loose ends, Sericeous and vibrant, The starry facade, Sheathing bounties, Sent unknown, Spreading, Love.
A song, Euphonious, Lilting,stirring,blending, Spreading tranquility unfeigned, A bliss.
