Be Positive

Theme: Gift,
Style: Acrostic,
Device: Simile

Because it is the only way possible to survive
Each thought of mine is devoted to her to revive.

Passing on the fluid of life from my body to hers
Occasionally stopping, to check if she is better or worse.
She’s my only love, just as each day has only one night.
I want us together like the two eyes that share the same sight
To make sure we are bonded without separation
I give her the gift of life, without any deliberation.
Venting out my blood to her to save her during her complication
Every last bit of my B positive blood is ready for the donation.

High-koo

Day 1:
Theme: Screen,
Style: Haiku,
Device: Alliteration

a good godly glass,
the red rain, rising roof high,
have intel inside

A Twist to the Tale

The Foxes and the Grapevine

The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog
and into the vineyard she hastily did jog.
She reached for the grapes that were held high
and when she couldn’t, it did sigh,
“Those grapes are sour – not for me to hog.”

Saying so she went her way
Searching for a different choice of prey.
But following her, came another fox
who entered by jumping across the gate’s locks
and sighting grapes – he entered the fray.

Abandoned

I have been taken.
Forcibly forsaken.

Barely surviving, to provide for another’s comfort.
Squeezed and packed as a parcel, unable to contort.

I live, caged in someone else’s house.
Missing my home, children and my spouse.

Back there, they are praying silently with hope
Thanks to their prayers, I am able to cope.

I work in this region that is foreign.
Land, when compared to mine, is barren.

All these plants look like a fake.
Even the water feels like a mistake.

The worst part is that my tears cannot be seen;
They melt silently into the blue and green.

A small dedication to all those forcibly taken from their homes to serve elsewhere.

A Story Of Sacrifice

This is a story that began when stars were formed from dust.
It is the history that speaks of the sacrifice of love and not lust.

This ballad sings the story of four – Aakash and Prithvi.
With them, Indu and Savitha – characters four and three.

Day 12: Cloudy Conscience

Today’s Prompt: Write a post inspired by a real-world conversation.
Today’s twist: include an element of foreshadowing in the beginning of your post.


The solitary sun was high in the sky,
With no one to disturb – the ground, it did fry.

I was, as usual, left out alone. My best friend was investing his time with his girlfriend. I wasn’t jealous although I did feel that I could have done with a better company than my earphones.

Today’s Prompt: Go to a local café, park, or public place and write a piece inspired by something you see.

Today’s twist: write an adverb-free post.


The Familiar Stranger

I awoke late, thanks to the pressures on my blog
And raced to the bus stop – placing a jog.

Once inside, I get a ticket to my destination,
I settled down for my journey to my educational institution.

I spotted an old couple sitting side-by-side
Something about their faces made me forget the ride.
