An old sepia toned picture kindled wistful memories
of the bygone days.
I was the diva of rhythmic prowess,
tiptoeing my way on to the stage.
Full of nimble balletic grace,
pirouetting with poise, to the musical cadence.
I was crowned the
to a thunderous applause.
Today, my passion for dance has drifted into oblivion,
as I strive to prove myself in the rat race.
It sadly rests in peace
buried under the busyness of life,
in a dark corner of my soul!

Triple haiku for Eugi’s weekly prompt – Happiness
Sound of music plays
happy feet waltz in rhythm
Soft tendrils unfurl
buoyant blossoms dance wildly
Gentle swirling snow
a sparkling graceful ballet
white wintry delights
layers of colors celebrate
infinite sky glows
Nascent rays glide down
spectacular dazzling show
the dance of the dawn

And the winner is …

Spring weaves pure magic
the vibrant blooms dance with joy
Life’s dream in fragments
death plays a mysterious dance
the heartache follows!
