Monumental Moments

From time to time, we come across moments in life.
Powerful, painful but poetic moments
that go through you like a sharp knife.

It is these moments make your life
feel as if it were a work of fiction.
These moments, so surreal,
are enough to be an addiction.

Some as simple as seeing someone
you just happened to think.
As hurting as three friends walking alone
in three different directions.

They mark not just differences of opinion.
They mark a choice of different decisions.

These moments are hard to forget.
Their lasting impressions are forever set.

These are the moments that you will remember
that bookmark the book of your life, forever.

These truly special moments are the ones that we should grip
just as special as a proposal – the milestone for a relationship
or the first handshake that sows the seed of friendship.

For such painful moments of separation show us that,
if they are enough to care, we care enough to be hurt.

Remember these moments forevermore.
Not to reminisce or cherish,
but to remember them till we perish
as the moments that that shaped our life from the core.

It’s Been A While

My sincere apologies to all my followers for my absence. I’ve been a bit busy lately and haven’t given my blog the attention it deserves. Although I did my best with the blogs I followed and visited them. And yes – a few developments:

  1. I’ve updated the “And The Award Goes To…” post. That is, I have added the five random facts about my humble self.
  2. I’m going to start with Flash Fiction for Aspiring Writers – Something to keep my blog up and active.
  3. And once I get that up and running – depending on the response, I plan to post my prose-poetry on a weekly basis. (Remember Cloudy Conscience?)

That’s all for now – catch you all at my flash fiction and poetry pages 😉

Day Eight: The Familiar Stranger

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.
