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?

Oscillate

Oscillate

As the pandemic went on,

her emotions oscillated between hope and depression.

As the pandemic went on,

she was aghast in particular at people’s reluctance to follow key health procedures.

As the pandemic went on,

she felt her life going into a downward spiral.

Ashamed

Ashamed

Dominic bowed his head to hide his face. He felt ashamed of steps he took despite attempts to proclaim new beginnings.

When asked to save, he decided to spend. While others called him shallow due to his love for money, he considered it a deep paradox that having so much he couldn’t spend.

Eventually, it was too late as his temerity gave way to his shady dealings which marked his end.

Was his search worth the time?

55 word fiction: Music brings calm

She was an exuberant individual but did cling onto her failures from the past. She always had the fear that she may not succeed due to the setbacks. And so, when she found that she could take her musical instruments along on her space mission, she found it quite interesting. These would keep her busy.

Eyes

Eyes

He seemed shocked at what

all he had been forced to see

in that crazy house

 

Those greenish yellow

eyes told a thousand words as

he kept staring on

Coping with a crisis

Coping with a crisis

If possible,

we would emerge out of this pandemic by switching it off,

If possible,

we would fume less and smile more as the pandemic taught us that life is short,

Maybe this is just an aberration

for learning to cope with a crisis.

Wrangle

Wrangle

With him in denial, the wrangle continued. With the others adept at handling everything, he didn’t get anything in the end let alone a space to live. There was no luminescence in life.
