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

Keeping him in her memories

Keeping him in her memories

It had just been a while since he was gone. Her world revolved around him from morning to night. And now, he had just been cruelly taken away from her.

Her mind just kept wandering back to the last time she saw him. The day was as hectic as it could get and she had never ever been this busy. While she had been a tyro at the start, she had built a strong career in the decade she had worked at this organization. And things had just kept getting busier. She didn’t even have time to bid him goodbye while leaving home. Little did she know that that was the last time.

She kept reading about rebirth and also hoping for a message in a glass bottle from him indicating that he was fine.

She believed – If you are a dreamer, come in.

 

Note: The line – “If you are a dreamer, come in” is from Shel Silverstein’s poem Invitation as published in his book Where the Sidewalk Ends.

Photography: Focus on the subject

Focus is generally the central point of attention and activity. For photographers, it’s all the more important to keep the focus on a specific subject so that their photographs are able to tell their stories.

The focus was on the sunset and the lovely colours in the sky

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.

New York has so much to offer to anyone and everyone whether the individual is a leisure tourist or a business traveler. The city changes its colours across seasons and from day into night and vice versa.

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?

Ten Word Story: Night #AtoZChallenge

Ten Word Story: Night

Nights of torture gave way

to mornings of relative calm.

I am taking the A to Z Challenge 2020 with Blogchatter and my theme is Microfiction

 

Life by the window seat

Life by the window seat

Sometimes it makes you lose yourself amidst the clouds.

Sometimes it takes you to lush green fields and valleys.

Sometimes it takes you to mountains far and beyond.

Sometimes it gives you a sneak peak of the coastline.

Sometimes you experience the day and a lot of light all around while at other times its the night and only the loneliness and the darkness that sticks around with you.

Sometimes you see the snowy winter while at others times you feel the hot summer or the monsoons.

Sometimes it takes you to a world you have only dreamt of.

Sometimes it makes you forget your emotions and brings a smile on your face.

Sometimes it makes you think of your troubles and brings a tear to your eyes.

Life by the window seat is sure to give you all these experiences and more.

Skywatch Friday – Dusk at Sentosa Island, Singapore

Skywatch Friday: Dusk at Sentosa Island, Singapore

“There’s a special quality to the loneliness of dusk, a melancholy more brooding even than the night’s.”

Guest Post: A visit to the Bhangarh Fort

Bhangarh Fort

Bhangarh Fort

My whole body has been shaking for an hour now. It’s as if all my body parts have been jumbled up aching every bit every inch. My car can’t find a patch to smooth the tyres and give my bones some relaxation. Before making the trip to Bhangarh Fort, I googled about the place and read about the spooky stories related to the fort paying little attention to one of the comments that gave the exact picture of the journey as I had experienced.

My sudden holidays had forced me to make a short trip to the Sariska Tiger Reserve. But the main attraction of the trip was to visit the horror fort that I had read about so many times.

The D-Day had finally come and I started for the fort early in the morning. Due to the crowded roads, I reached my destination at around 11am. It is not allowed to enter the fort past 5pm as it is said that at night there are ghosts flying all around.
