The Decision!

Inspired by Sadje’s What do you see prompt #47

Tears of happiness welled up in Gina’s eyes, as she watched her son being helped onto the stage to receive a prize for his painting. Today his paintings were much sought after, the world over, bringing him fame and money.

Walking back 20 years in time, she recalled the day, her world had shattered when her young son was diagnosed with autism. It took her some time to come out of the shock.  But she did not let fate define her son’s life.

She introduced him to the world of colors. Today, looking at his old sketch book she was glad with her decision.


Micro Poetry – Challenge & Destiny!

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

The prompt words are  Challenge &  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!
