Ephemeral Harbours

There is shelter amidst the squallAway from the wild seas and tempests blown from the EastA grip strong enough to hold a ship together, that was barely holding herselfHow could harbours be as strong as they have?How do these harbours stand in the days of late?How would they fare?Do they carry on with such strengthContinue reading “Ephemeral Harbours”

A Garden of Light

It wasn’t the lights that attracted her to the place of pleasure and exhilaration,but she was beckoned by the calls of her childhood memories. Back when everything was different and she had the assurance that today would be just another day and tomorrow was something to look forward to. It was a truth that sheContinue reading “A Garden of Light”

Upfront

An ethereal passingJudgements taintedA repulsive truceAn accord of bloodThat poured onUnceremoniously The wild yet caged creature screamedIn a voice far from solitaryIntents cascading into a prismatic spectrumColliding and fighting for dominanceA menagerie of sphinxes and sirensDeathless apparitions of the fleshThey speakA voiceless languageErupting like fireworksRupturing grey skiesAnd mired in a heavenless spaceOf hellish respite

The Long-Awaited Goodbye

Dearest Oblivion, I come to you again to bid you farewell. I shall leave you, and no doubt that I shall try to forget you. We humans tend to forget things as the conscious mind is a labyrinth of words to unravel, so if there are more strings to untangle, I’m afraid that nothing muchContinue reading “The Long-Awaited Goodbye”

“…the courage of stars…”

Within the first few seconds of the video, we see fragments of light joining together, back to the source. The footage of fireworks in reverse emulated the formation- the unity of these small sparks of light into a significantly brighter spiral of radiant glow. A halo. An orbit that moved inwards. Back together again. BackContinue reading ““…the courage of stars…””
