Everyday musings ….Life as I see it…….my space, my reflections and thoughts !!

Micro Poetry – Challenge & Destiny!

In response to Colleen’s weekly poetry challenge #70, I have written a tanka and a haiku.

The prompt words areΒ  Challenge &Β  Destiny, with the condition only to use their synonyms.




Defying the norm

carving a niche for herself

rewriting her fate

sealed with tenacity and

an identity sans tags!



Life in extreme conditions


Resilient soul

confronting the trying times

redrafting karma!

    Your poetic prowess keeps me baffled, Radhika. You express it so beautifully. Like the second one – such few lines but so powerful. Just apt in the current situation of the world.
