Transition of Thoughts

Weaving thoughts into words

Dread: My first solo e-book of short stories

I have always been very observant about whatever happens around us. A lot of my short stories and other forms of micro fiction over the years have always been based on what I have seen and what I feel may happen. The ability of humans to survive all odds and come up trumps is what keeps me going.

Each of the five stories in this e-book is based on my thoughts and experiences of the way humans survive in difficult situations.

There are so many of us who work late at night, don’t we? Haven’t we ever felt nervous on what could happen? A safari sounds like an experience of a lifetime. But what if things go awry? If you are on the way home and suddenly run into a tragedy happening around you, how would you react? Do you just run away? We all wait for that perfect holiday with our family. But what if the perfect holiday turns into a perfect nightmare?

The lie that changed their lives

The lie that changed their lives

Their relationship

had already broken up

the day he had lied.

 

While he did try to

apologize, she didn’t budge

one bit as “Actions speak louder than words”.

 

She just continued

staying on for the sake of

her family.

Summer day

Summer day

A new summer day gave way to blue skies where some of the cirrus clouds tried to coalesce together.

Life

Life

Life is like the waves in the ocean,

sometimes there are ups

while at other times there are downs.

 

When there is a lot of good happening, there could be so

much of it that people start

to get out of touch with reality.

 

So when the ‘bad’ comes along,

people are stunned thinking as to

what hit them.

 

A mix of both the good and the bad is

what makes life worth living as one

keeps working to turn around the ‘bad’ into the ‘good’

and to turn the ‘good’ into something even better.

Survival of the fittest

Survival of the fittest

‘But man is not made for defeat,’ he said. ‘A man can be destroyed but not defeated.’
– The Old Man and the Sea (1952) by Ernest Hemingway

A struggle to live

amidst the horror of death

without oxygen

 

A struggle to live

amidst loss of livelihood

and hopelessness

 

But also a chance

to readapt and rethink our

way of life ahead

 

But also a chance

for survival of the fittest

in more ways than one

First day of summer

First day of summer

It had been a long hard winter with coronavirus wreaking havoc day after day. It was heartbreaking to see people struggling for their lives as the medical community began to buckle under the constant stream of patients. The dark clouds of uncertainty hung over everyone’s life.

But the vaccinations provided a silver lining amidst these dark clouds. And as the first day of summer began, these vaccinations were speeding ahead and began to show that there was light at the end of the tunnel. As the sun shone bright, the brightness in people’s lives also began to take shape.

first day of summer

with the sun shining bright amidst

the beautiful sky

Dark night sky

Dark night sky

The dark night sky

so many stars wherever you see

peace and quiet around,

a time to reflect

 

So many stars wherever you see

that light up the night sky

in all its glory

 

Peace and quiet around

with miles and miles of desert

without a single soul around

 

A time to reflect

and introspect for everything

that has been and always will be

100 word fiction: In the woods

In the woods

PHOTO PROMPT © Alicia Jamtaas

Sam suggested that his cabin would be the perfect getaway for some fun times with friends. As the day wore on, the clouds looked ominous.

In the woods

They all had their share of fun and just when they were ready to call it a night, they heard a loud bang outside. Almost immediately, the doors and windows swung open. The moon was shining bright and the wind was howling. Suddenly and without warning, Sam was pulled away into the darkness.

And then he woke up with a start. He was sweating and breathing heavily. He was relieved to find himself in bed

Journey of life

Journey of life

The train chugged along

identical tracks, but the

surroundings kept changing

 

The journey of life

and death is the same for all

but people encountered are different

The day she was waiting for..

The day she was waiting for..

She was waiting for

this day but now that it was

here, she got nervous

 

This wedding was what

she had always wanted and

her parents agreed

 

Though it went well,

she became teary eyed leaving home

and had to avoid smudging her makeup
