Being very excited on exploring the beauty of Serenissima, with her love, Amanda waited for Dariel at the spot they had decided. She frantically gave eager glances at her watch, every minute or so. At once, the skipper from within the water taxi alighted asking her, "Ma'am are you waiting for me?", taking off his... Continue Reading →

Three Line Tale #18: Awakening

Yes dear Cory, in the same flea market, I took to pickpocketing, that being my first and the last time. "How did that happen, grandpa?", questioned little Cory.

Sands of Time

On the fine sands of time,With bated breath, mine,I stagger, fall, get up fine,With might again, I climb. The dunes beat me off rhyme,All blow against: wind, clime,The inner conscience whines,"Nothing in hands of thine." I grip in my hands, sands fine,The more I fist sands refined,The grains slip, in swift lines,From the weary hands... Continue Reading →

Like the red hot temper of blazing fire, Thaws the low cold temper of icicles Like the growing warmth of deep desire, Conquors the cool decree of discipline Like the heat of flowing blood acquires, Control over cold bondage of loyalty Like long lost warmth of real love dire, Quells the thirst of lasting cool...

Lost words

The gates to my mind's runway, Clearly latched, no escape way, Shut on all that can fly away. Thoughts and words, in array, Ripe and set to fly, all that way, Crash-land sans going faraway. Sitting with pen, paper that day, Blank and blank for hours, I say, Banging my head, doing all I may.... Continue Reading →

Touching cotton clouds white…

To touch those cotton clouds white, In colourful balloon, I'll fly high, I'll reach the heights, infinite. In it's shelter, the sun smiles bright, In the sky above my dreams afloat lie, To touch those cotton clouds white. Hangs about my heart, a little fright, It's outstared, with courage's eye, I'll reach the heights, infinite.... Continue Reading →
