The lock down cleanses the landscape
stay away humans balm the earth,
liberate it from their vile deeds,
as it breathes and rejuvenates
to a complete makeover.
Empyrean blues smile across the horizon
cumulus clouds indulge in careless whispers
the zephyr flirts with the virgin blooms
sounds of chirps serenade the world
sparkling brooks mirror a pristine image
boughs dance in gay abandon
the nadir glows a radiant gold, before
the night sky flaunts a starry spectacle
flora and fauna revel in its new found freedom
nature’s beatitude delights hearts!
Eugi’s weekly prompt: Dancing
The bait of the worldly attractions
lure the timid mind.
The din of the endless buzz
reverberates, before it
deafens our ears
to the call of our inner voice.
We ignore its gentle nudge
and tread far away from it.
Finally, its faint whispers
get buried under
our deceased conscience.
Remember to make today beautiful
invest in it, moments of happiness
for ,tomorrow it becomes yesterday
a series of good investment in “Now”
yields a bounty of rich returns
filled with wistful nostalgia,
culminates in a life well lived!
In response to V. J’s weekly challenge#93 : Remember
Sharing the link to my book, to beat the lock down blues 🙂
Wavering fragile lines
alter to being resolute,
illegible scribbles and scrawls
transformed into stylized writings,
wings of fear clipped
to soar into the open skies,
meek submission develops
to an emphatic No,
the societal molds shed
to being You,
against swaying temptations,
to own up responsibility
for a wrong doing,
leaving behind the comfort zone
to swim against the tide.
Filled with these strokes of courage
the canvas of life paints picture
evolving into an
with a metamorphosed soul!

3 stories in response to Shweta’s 6 word story prompt: Life.
Times have changed now.
I, the black insipid garbage bag lay
in the corner of the dingy utility
sloppy, with no body to care for me
I was a lonely soul, carrying the burden of
all the trash piling up on my shoulders,
unceremoniously, thrown into a huge dump.
But times have changed now.
The lock down has sure changed people.
Suddenly my mistress
seems to be interested in me.
She takes special care to dress up,
with matching accessories,
picks me up tenderly,
steps out to drop me
with a beautiful smile.
Ah….these are the best days of my life.
Times sure have changed now!!
A few days back got this image as an Whatsapp forward. Just penned down a different take on it. Hope you enjoy it 🙂
The tussle between the thoughts
wreak havoc to my sanity
the positives and negatives jostle
vie, to dominate each other
mire the mind in a muddled mess.
Bound within the confines of home
the daily chores defeat the weary body
frustrations overpower the confused mind
it succumbs to a sulking mood
banging the door shut, to all .
The eventide ray from the horizon peeps in
bringing with it an enlightened reflection
merging the vestige of dark thoughts with the weaning shadows
the benign glow of the amethyst horizon
embraces the soul in a serene grace of gratitude .
Confined to home due to the lock down, my ramblings found words to vent out my frustrations. All fine, just waiting for this dark cloud to blow away without much harm.
Stay safe , Take care!
