how I relish

the freshness of your breath

on my tired skin


Stagnant waterfall.

Stagnant waterfall.

Something about this photo my son took that makes me feel alive. He captured this waterfall in motion. This was on our way to a hill resort last year.

Something like water , which is always so full of life, looks amazing when its motion is captured by a camera.



Leftovers Sandwich

Today, publish a post based on unused material from a previous piece –a paragraph you nixed, a link you didn’t include, a photo you decided not to use. Let your leftovers shine.


Life is too short.



No Time to Waste

Fill in the blank: “Life is too short to _____.” Now, write a post telling us how you’ve come to that conclusion.

Life is too short

To hate anybody

Life is too short

To be a nobody

Life is too short

To be at war

Life is too short

To be shown the door

Life is too short

To be without love

Life is too short

To forget the God above.

I thought of this after watching Homeland.

A Beautiful Life.



Buyers, Beware?

The year is 2214, and your computer’s dusty hard drive has just resurfaced at an antique store. Write a note to the curious buyer explaining what he or she will find there.

A Beautiful Life.

Hey there, you are lucky

To have found a treasure like this

All your friends will be jealous

And your girlfriend will give you a kiss.

This hard drive is old

But don’t you undermine its utility

It may not be worth a lot of money

Such a treasure you won’t find in the entire city.

It has beautiful photographs

Of a beautiful family

A number of lovely poems

Written so happily.

There is a diary in there

The one I wrote everyday

To lighten my heart

It has all that I ever wanted to say.

You shall live my life through this

Don’t miss this chance my friend

It was a beautiful life indeed

You will be happy,as your money will be well spent.




Second-Hand Stories

What’s the best story someone else has recently told you (in person, preferably)? Share it with us, and feel free to embellish — that’s how good stories become great, after all.

A picture is worth a thousand words …

This picture taken by my son tells a story, which he  has nicely described by the accompanying poem.


We see life while running fast,
With our minds trapped in the concrete jungle,
We forget to see the natural side of life,
We start to live in our own lies..

We have forgotten how to be free,
Owned by our technology, we’ve forgotten how to see,
See how beautiful life is outside our fake shell..
We forgotten how to make stories and tell..

We travel in our “safe” metal cocoons everywhere,
Running day and night, here and there..
Take the time to take out the old cycle you own,
Ride it down the street you everyday see, but have never known..

We forget to think how it feels to be free,
Think how much of the world, we’re yet to see..
Ask yourself where we’ve lost the simplicity,
Cause I see lanterns lit by electricity..

My Descent.



This week, show us your interpretation of descent.


The world at my feet….

Oh they scared me!



Trick or Trick

It’s Halloween, and you just ran out of candy. If the neighborhood kids (or anyone else, really) were to truly scare you, what trick would they have to subject you to?

I am always terrified of noisy kids…so here it is what it would take to scare me…hahaha.

Its Halloween, give us candy,

Make sure you give it to us,

Or else you know our modus operandi,

So better not create a fuss.

Its our right so we ask,

No point in hiding now,

Its not that big a task,

Come and take a bow.

All night we will be at your door,

We will not let you sleep,

Some will lie and cry on your floor,

We will tell all you are so cheap.

What a night!



Trio No. 3

Today you can write about anything, in whatever genre or form, but your postmust mention a dark night, your fridge, and tears (of joy or sadness; your call). Feel free to switch one ingredient if you have to (or revisit one from previous trioprompts)

The night was dark and eerie,

The winds blew cold,

My stomach growled with hunger,

No one was home I was told.

I rushed to the kitchen,

Looking  for food,

The fridge was in sight,

Thinking of food I drooled.

I cried tears of fear,

As I saw what was inside

They were cut fingers of a witch,

My fear I could not hide.

As I stepped towards the kitchen door,

It was like a dream,

But as I opened the fridge door,

I realized it was Halloween..
