The Artist of my Soul

What do you see #47 Oh to find the one Who knows you more than any Never to be yours Who are you that sees me so clear A voyeur who prowls my soul And drips between its layers Daring to divulge Secrets I did not know I had. How in so short a time…

Masterpiece. The value in us all.

Reena’s exploration challenge. What I’ve done What has been done to me Encounters of every ilk Trials that have shaped my resolve Nightmares that have come true And dreams that are now due. Not many see The good I’ve done The kindness I show The subtle trims I make And the happiness designed for others….

Irresistible. A Shadorma sequence #poetry and #prose

Colleen’s weekly challenge. Moonlight touch Soft and arrousing She calls me Her whisper An intimate allusion Shameless with mischief My heart flutters… Faint caress A smidge upon skin ‘I want you’ She tells me Undaunted in her desire Audacious with need Her seduction, enthralling. Signs of lust A glint in the eye Winks of love…

The path we walk alone. #poetry

what do you see #46 Take a breath Calm your heartbeat A thump!…A sigh!… Step by step No time to lose Breathe… The journey is long And the day is hard But who knows what wakes in the night Sands that change Dunes that come alive Winds that thirst Quiet… Tread lightly… The shadows grow…

Syllabic transitions. Living a dream

What do you see #45 Watering beauty Arching ripples of wonder Marvels made from dreams See the miracles that bloom When man and nature combine Lost in splendours of innovation Human dreams weilding nature’s tools She watches light’s refraction Twirls beneath its spectrum Glistens in its bliss In that moment Dreams come true And hope…

Celestial Virtues #writephoto (tanka, prose and cinquain)

Twilight’s crescent moon Am I wrong to love you so To share my secrets To trust in your clairvoyance How far will optimism go The moon is a symbol of rebirth, Its cycle is true and does not falter. Am I then right, to whisper earthly dreams beneath its ethereal glow, to place hopes in…

Saved by the book. #micropoetry

Destiny’s rails. A cinquain and prose collaboration.

Aishwarya and I composed this together. It was a much needed relief to do this with her, especially given the anxiety that was tainting this week for me. The challenge of writing this together has livened my mood and I’m now bolstered to kick this anxiety. Okay, here’s the collaboration. Aishwarya wrote in plain italics…

More than just words

what do you see #43 Can you show me where your love lies, Amidst these remnants from suitors, Pasted on the canvas of my heart. Can you tell me If love were a letter, what words would you use Would you write the pleasures concealed behind your virtuous lips, Scribe those desires too shameful to…
