A bubble – a haiku

She floated through storms, In iridescent bubble, But unscathed she shone.

A stranger

Stranger! Who are you? I don't know you at all. All these years, I lived deluded. A mirage I envisaged, Lush green and crystal blue. But sandstorms and stormy blizzards, Blew away those grainy sands of my fancy, Leaving behind a barren trail. Nothing out of nothing! It blew away those false charades, A facade… Continue reading A stranger

A wedding ( a Limerick)

It's the season of weddings. The media is splashed with celebrity wedding pictures as we gape in awe at the couture costumes and dreamy sequences, a page out of another world. We dream and conjure of living that glam dream. But mundane people like me can only look from afar and watch the hoopla with… Continue reading A wedding ( a Limerick)

Flown free

One day, She floated free, Breaking all those bonds, Ties that anchored her not. She called out to deaf walls, Her cries resonated in her own ears, And tears that shed, But moved none. She wanted a hand to hold to, An ear to whisper her untold fears into. Her cries stifled, Her pain silenced.… Continue reading Flown free

Twittering Tales # 111 – 19 November 2018

Play of Time

You spend years of life, Years of life that go by, Years that you dreamt of, Years that you cherished with dreams of life. Years roll by, All in a silent cacophony, The nimble tread of time, You failed to hear it's chimes, It eavesdropped, It knew your secret desires. But the stealthy elf, It… Continue reading Play of Time

A question of life, She resolved to decipher, A stark enigma. Via: https://wordpress.com/read/feeds/64808775/posts/2056059039

The gorge

When the world crumbles, And you stand at the precipice, Staring into the deep gorges around, A dark abyss. A slip here and down you go, A cascade into an empty void. As you gaze into the horizon, A shaft of light streams in, Sheathed and clouded, You hang onto the tiny ray, In hope… Continue reading The gorge
