White Sands

White Sands

The white sands were a magnet for tourists,

while activities like paragliding and scuba diving were fun, hardihood was key

They loved lazing on the beach

and getting scuttlebutt from friends,

When they were bored

they acted as if all the information was recondite

Event of the Year

Event of the Year

It was an Annual Event but was it to celebrate over, he wasn’t sure.  In the beginning of the year, a lot of promises had been made which eventually turned out to be false. The employees had been taken for a ride to the extent that most believed that they would be rewarded and this had helped build sublime confidence in the team. But that wasn’t to be.

The peccadillos started piling up for the team month after month as the frustration began billowing up all around. The top two performers started to hammer tornillos into the wall to get rid of their anger. Finally they just walked out and ended up taking the willow medicine and using the pillow for a good night’s rest.

Betrayal

Betrayal

There was a lot that she was left to ponder upon as her friend who liked onomatopoeia betrayed her. He broke her trust by forcing a deal under duress. Despite being lucid enough, she was left penniless. Only divine intervention could save her.

100 word fiction: First day of summer

100 word fiction:

PHOTO PROMPT © C.E.Ayr

It had been a long and dull winter with a lot many snowstorms day in and day out. He was a perspicacious individual who always liked to be engaged in something or the other. For someone as professionally inclined as him, he had to find unorthodox ways to keep himself occupied.

And so at the first instance of summer, he took out his cycle. While he initially thought of the empty roads, he knew that cycling by the sea hearing the waves hit the shore felt blissful.

But as the rains came suddenly, he ran for cover under the gate.

Friends unfriended

Friends unfriended

A team of two dancers, a team of two friends,

they always hung out together

But punishment was an echo of her feelings,

when her friend’s actions were too much to not bother

Forgiveness meant being cordial and working in tandem

in the interim both of which weren’t acceptable to her,

And so with time, the wedge between them got wider

and wider and finally their relationship was wiped clean

Telescope of time

Telescope of time

Salvador Dali (no title given) found on Pinterest

“I am tired of the vitriol he spews whenever he talks. He seems to have taken quite a bit of advantage of the freedom he was bestowed with.”

“That’s so true. Some of his behavior with his fellow students and even seniors has been atrocious to say the least. And just the other day, he and his friends ended up creating such a ruckus in the canteen library.”

“We look at him through the wrong end of the long telescope of time”

Renner had been selected as the president of the school committee due to his all round performances in academics and sports. It was a unanimous decision. But little did they realize that he never knew the way to conduct himself when given a lot of responsibility. The school committee became his personal fiefdom so to speak as he did what he desired.

100 word fiction: Pandemic fatigue

As the days kept passing by and the seasons kept changing, they started to feel that the juice they had in the society had no value. Everyone irrespective of their social status was equally at the mercy of the virus. While initially, they were very eager to know more about the pandemic, fatigue started to set in over time making them incurious.

They were tired of all the negativity. But despite this, though there were days when it was bright and sunny outside, they didn’t deem it fit to enjoy themselves when everyone around was struggling to make ends meet.

She was there

She was there

He laid awake and said the name into the night. He was making noise by hitting the ark. She was obdurate even though it may have seemed asinine to anyone. While he was honest, her medium sized tricks were enough to illude and if caught to elude others.

She never looked at the arc of life through a prism of right and wrong. And then she was there. He tried to scream but couldn’t.

Tranquility

Tranquility

Tranquility is

the new luxury though one

shouldn’t be lonely too

 

Tranquility is

all I need for keeping my

dignity always

 

Tranquility is 

a choice but one needs to be

chary of strangers

 

Tranquility is 

bliss when one can even hear

the howl of the wind

Pandemic woes

Pandemic woes

The pandemic had a serious impact on their business so much so that they were left dumbfounded on what had actually hit them. They were forced to shut shop and the onus was on them to start afresh.

Pandemic woes

What better place to restart than the comforts of their homes in the countryside far away from the maddening crowds. And so they set off on the highway. It was important that they took a break to clear their heads and then planned their next move.

Pandemic woes

The greenery and the fresh air all around provided the necessary peace and calm to think.
