In response to V. J’s weekly challenge Threes. “Sum up a story in 3 words or three lines of three words”

I have written a pair of threes, highlighting how spoken words in a relationship can make or mar them.

  1. Caustic tongues lash

corrodes relationships’s scaffolding

crumbled emotional detritus.

2. Amiable patient dialogues

propensity to forgive

sinews of relationship.



Woman Placing Her Finger Between Her Lips

Her temples throb

the din of vitriolic memories besiege her,

the ominous scars remind her

of a dark hideous past

haunting images circling her mind’s eye

with no signs of exit,

sucking her into a web of

emotional despondency!

Day 11 – Family love!

Continuing the Valentine Special series, each day of the month, I will highlight a different facet of love in the form of a haiku. Hope you stay with me throughout this month long journey with all your support and love.


Related by blood, but connected by love….that’s a family. Family is an incredible bond between the members woven together with layers of love, comfort, security and support. They do have their share of arguments and difference of opinion, but family is always one’s strength. The love of the family is the life’s greatest blessing!

Secure bond that weaves

an emotional connect

with pure threads of love!




Tanka – Turmoil!

In response to Colleen’s weekly tanka challenge # 98, to use the prompt words Sad & Write (Synonyms only)


the somber heart weeps

hit by emotional storm

pen scribbles in vain

the deluge of tears ink

a melancholic saga.
