Weaving thoughts into words

Moonlight

Moonlight

It came as no surprise to anyone when she entered the shop and found it inhabited by fluffy cuddly creatures. She had always seen a lot of people bringing their pets or kids coming to the shop to play with them time and time again. In presence of these creatures, the kids seemed full of verve. On full moon nights, the shop used to organize pet friendly events for people to play and bond with these creatures. Their aim was to move thoughts of animal lovers away from the froth in the name of animal protection by other groups. Though the shop’s owner knew that his shop was in imminent danger from these groups, it didn’t stop him one bit. He was more than happy working in the shadows of others to do his bit in taking care of these creatures.

Summer was at its

peak though without power, he

slept beneath the moon

Hikes

Hikes

These are desperate times for economies around the world. Hikes of all kinds whether its in utility rates, ticket rates, hotel rates, prices in retail and more maybe required to prevent a number of organizations and countries going bust. But on the other hand, hikes will discourage people even further as there are millions who have lost jobs.

The most important thing for almost anyone is to ensure that they are able to put food on the table. All the other luxuries may have taken a backseat for the foreseeable future. Life has become all the more intense and it is a far cry from the fantabulous days before the pandemic when money hunters didn’t need to do much at all as everything seemed hunky dory. The struggle for survival is on as the pandemic has given people a mirror on their actions from the past.

From spring to summer,

the pandemic left millions

struggling for it all

Birthday

Birthday

Over the years, I have always been lucky to spend my birthday with people I care about. While I was never interested to celebrate birthdays with too many people, I remember the ones during school days when my parents used to invite a few of my good friends home. After cutting the cake and the exchange of gifts we used to have a nice meal at the restaurant of my choice. Surely not too fancy but an evening well spent nonetheless.

Birthdays with friends and

family are the ones which

are cherished always

Flight

Flight

At first, she was scared that the weight of her

wings and gravity would make it painful

to fly but her mother calmed her down.

 

Off she went flying over the mountains and

the sea discovering a new world which

was both beautiful and threatening.

 

With time she started to enjoy flying be it

alone or in a flock so much so that

waited to fly off each day everyday.

Ruby had always obliged his requests but

he didn’t bother to help her out when she

needed some thus leaving a bad taste in the mouth.

Imagination

Imagination

While his imagination ran wild on

what could he be confronted with on the other

side, flatus had gotten the better of him.

Shining moment

Shining moment

I have been lucky to have had a lot many shining moments over the years. But if I had to point out that ‘one shining moment’, it would be the first time I got published in an anthology. It had just been about 2 years since I began blogging and to be part of a paperback in such a short time was nothing but a dream come true. I was still learning the ropes of blogging (I still am 11 years down the line ;)). But back then, it was still early days in my writing journey and that experience was my first step into the world of publishing. Thankfully there were a lot many interesting authors and bloggers out there always ready to help and support.

As the skylarks were

in flight, the young ones joined in

to learn the new tricks.
