I am here

Far from home

I want to go back but

There are lot of restrictions

The flights are suspended, borders closed

Daily I check for flight schedules to see if I can

Get booking to fly to my home country

But I am disappointed every day

But I am still hopeful

I will get there soon!

When the pandemic broke, a lot of people who were out of the country for work, business, or vacation were stuck in foreign countries. This poem is a reflection of their…

Reena’s Exploration Challenge 143 — cool grey slate

Cool, grey slate ….. by Jade Li/Lisa

Tao Talk

Surveying cool grey slate,
Shapes form, then colors
Rainbowed characters drawn
Shade shift, flavors pique
Sensory extravaganza

But only in our minds
What is is a unidimensional
Flat map of what could be
How do we inflate the dream
Into three dimensions?

Winds, planets, satellites
Water pools, veins, capillaries
Mountains, valleys, caves
The greenleafs and furred
The scaled and naked ones

Three dimensions lush, full
But still an empty caricature
Without holy, magic things
Meandering in, between spaces
Hearts, souls, cosmic synapses

Light

Light …. by Aishwarya

Kitty's Verses

Fireflies, in clusters,

Enough,

To be the light in darkness,

Collectively enlighten.

The Sun,

Doesn’t,

Hold back his radiance,

Awakens attributes aplenty, unsolicited.

Light radiates in abundance,

Bottling it, shrouding in darkness, only to be obscure,

Let inhibitions be bygones,

Uncork the spark to shine on forever.

47 words.

Thoughts behind the poem :- Uncork the light to radiate around. Don’t hold back.

Acknowledgements :- In response to Reena’s Exploration Challenge # 142. Thank you for running the challenge, Ma’am. For rules please refer here. Thank you all for stopping by and reading.

End of an era

We open the house after a couple of years.  Spider-webs, furniture covered with old sheets and a skeletal kitchen greet us. My thoughts go back to the days, when the house reverberated with sounds - cackling laughter of children, my mother-in-law’s tyrannical instructions to all for doing things in a certain way and the cribbing …
