Mountain (The Daily Prompt)

Climb every mountain,
Ford every stream,
Follow every rainbow,
‘Till you find your dream.

Connected (The Daily Prompt)

I will not let go,

no matter what

Connected are we,

love will never depart

The tree branch from the right hand side tree grew towards the left one, on its own and intermingled with it. Resulting in what you see as a ‘connection’. We saw this unique image on a safari trip and I clearly remember our guide for that day calling it the ‘Love Tree’. Love sure has no boundaries.

Blank (The Daily Post)

Emptied heart

Emptied soul

Wiped away slates

Past no more

Starting over

Renewing life

Baby steps

Present is better

Decisions taken

Happiness is bound

Does not matter

Future unknown

to leave a live

DRAGON out of your calculations,

Fork (The Daily Prompt)

Life’s choices that you make

may not always be accepted

But always remember to choose

the path that feels right for you

It may not glide with the tide

and that’s okay, it’s alright

Everyone has a fork in their lives

It’s up to each person to decide

what’s best for them and

lead a wonderful life

Countless (The Daily Prompt)

Countless are the leaves

perched on the trees

that brings us the wonderful

summer breeze

but soon these trees

are hacked mercilessly

limbs torn apart

to make some space free

when will we learn

that actions like these

will lead into nothing but

Dream (The Daily Post)

Last night she had a beautiful dream

Where he was a king and she was a queen

I know, sounds silly but oh what the hell

It’s only a dream so can’t say much there

But in this dream she truly felt

An out and out princess with love so dealt

She felt like the cynosure of his eyes

Literally as if time had stood by




The crawling, the cuddling, the kisses and hugs

They now have stopped and she can’t do much

So instead she turns her heart into steel

And live with the ones she gets in her dreams

Brick (The Daily Prompt)

Built in 1852, it is amazing that it’s even standing! Unfortunately we did not get a chance to go inside and look at the beautiful stained glass windows. But the bricks used sure are sturdy for it to survive all the way till now.

St. John’s Church, Dharamsala, North India.

Pensive (The Daily Prompt)

Far off eyes

pensive mind

lost inside

about life

Where did it all go?

Is it too late

to live again?

When one hasn’t lived

in the first place
