The moon glow

Eerie silence

Not a foot fall to be heard

Taking a tentative step towards

The big moon glowing, obscuring the sun

The light, not silver like moonlight, nor golden sunshine

Still shows her where to go, she steps tentatively

There is no fear in her heart, no loneliness

She may be alone but her soul is brave

She stands tall and waits for the

Unknown, in the moon glow

Kiara’s Sunday Scribbles March 3/2019

Turn away from the hearth

Turn away from Mother Earth

Turn away from what gave us life

Can you turn away from what’s inside

The world is not dependent on you

It is you who needs what’s around you

The pastures are green and life is going on

Can you turn away from what you can see

How the world is shaping around us

Slipping and sliding turning upside down

Gripping the reality is of utmost need

Can you turn away from the reality

Perfect pair

They were like a couple of dancing birds

Colorful, coordinated and in perfect harmony

All their performances were par excellence

Object of envy from their contemporaries and

Adulation and admiration from the fans

Each act was an example of fluidity in motion

Wowing the audience with their skill and art

All the shows always getting rave reviews

Tuesday Writing Prompt February 26/ 2019

Today’s prompt:  From Go Dog Go Café:

The word “LIGHT” can be used in many different ways–noun, adjective, verb. What comes to mind when you hear that word? What is the  LIGHT in your life? How do you LIGHT up this world?

Use LIGHT or any form of it in a poem or short piece of prose.




Be the light in my world

I believe in your potential

I know that you will bring

Love and happiness to me

Be the light for the world

Bring joy and enlighten to all

Make life a little bit easy

For your fellow beings around you

Be the light of your own world

Give yourself love and understanding

Give a chance to yourself for making

Mistakes and learning from them

Be the light

Kiara’s Sunday Scribbles February 24/19

Built on the sweat and blood of those

We never see, never mention in our society

Those who gave their lives for the liberty

That we enjoy today without a thought of

What it took to get to this point where we are

Free to say and free to think, freedom that we

Take as our due, taken for granted, assured

That we are deserving of all this emancipation

We need to see and acknowledge the struggle

Of those who helped gain this state of liberation

Weekend Writing Prompt # 94

Word Prompt



The challenge is simple: each week you will be given an exact number of words you can use to write a poem or piece of prose.  You can use any format or style you like; go wherever your inspiration takes you.  The only rules are these:

• your poem / prose must contain this week’s word.  The word does not have to count towards the exact word count total – it can be in the title, or the first letters of the lines of a poem can spell it out – you can be as creative as you want as long as it’s there somewhere.

• the length of your poem / prose must match the number of words stated in this week’s challenge.  No more.  No less.

Distinctly indistinct

Nothing extraordinary

Just something plain

Indistinct and shadowy

Why would you or anyone

Give me a second look

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #75


The challenge this week is a pretty short one – just one word. If you have to look it up, consider yourself safe 🙂


There is no restriction on the format or the length of thepiece. It just has to be your reflection on the prompt from the core.

Write a post on your blog, and link it up with here with apingback, or copy-pasting the blog link in Comments.

I eagerly await your responses.

A beautiful mind

The beauty of the world doesn’t attract me

The reason is that I have seen many who are

Only pretty on the outside but rotten to the core

I like manners and graces but it is not something

For which I would give my trust or devotion to you

The money maybe important for now but it can go easy

Nobody can guarantee that the wealth will stay with you always

So what do you find charming, you ask for it is a puzzle

And very frankly I will tell you what attracts me to you

It’s something you can neither buy nor trade

It is the great intelligence that lives in your

Very beautiful mind

Searching for words


At times I suffer from a bankruptcy of ideas

The thought process being undermined by

Self doubt, and lack of conviction that attacks

My creativity, stalling the thoughts and depressing

The vivacity and agility of words

Seldomly there is a burst of delightful imagination

That comes to the rescue, and voilá

I have a beautiful piece of writing all complete

Shining with well placed tenses, nouns and adverbs

There is nothing wan or pale about this robust work

Three Things Challenge PL#6

Opening her door to the

Courier in the morning

What a pleasant surprise

Finding a lovely bouquet

Roses that are her favorite

But who has been so kind

There is no note accompanying

This very generous offering

Just then the telephone rings

A familiar voice at the other end

Asks,” did you like the flowers?”

Oh I love them but why today?

Nothing special, just wanted to

Let you know that I was thinking about you

3TC PL#6

Today’s prompt: bouquet, telephone, screwdriver

I couldn’t fit the screwdriver in, and I thought why spoil a good thing.



What do you see February 19/2019


The sailors look out in bemusement

Hardly believing their eyes, and it’s no wonder

These are not mermaids they had heard stories of

They are something entirely different and they are at a loss

And one of the older sailor asks them to step away from the porthole

Don’t you know the Naiads? he asks the spirit of the water, the nymphs of the sea

They will entice you, towards the deep waters mercilessly with their wiles

So stay back, and don’t make eye contact, lest their magic will turn

Your brain into a mush, controlling you to the extent that you will

Willingly step into the deep waters, regardless of you safety and life

They may look angelic but their tricks are evil bent on luring

You to a death to be feared by all men of the sea

As there is no death more horrible than

Drowning in the sea lusting

After these Naiads
