Midnight drama

The zenith moon
looked askance
as heretic dark clouds
gathered forces
to camouflage her
celestial beauty
Balefully, she
shooed them away
for trying to disallow
her from basking
in reflected glory.

Globe trotting

With the barrage

of news from every

corner of the world

about civil unrest,

political bankruptcy

and inclement weather

having put paid

to my wanderlust

I am putting up my feet

and surfing the net

as I don’t like feeling

at home on a vacation.

Tongue tied

Words are elusive today

Teasing from afar

Having a laugh at me

I want to summon

All of them

To let you know

How I feel

To pour out my feelings

And provide glimpses

Of the secret crevices of my heart

But I am left fumbling and floundering

stuttering and stumbling…

Till they have mercy on me

Er…I hope you don’t mind waiting!


With a heavy heart
she boarded the flight

Leaving for home did not fill her with delight

Love’s journey had come to an end

She sat forlorn with her head bent

Blinking back tears that fought for release

A deep voice asked if she would vacate the seat please

She turned to curtly tell him off

Her eyes widened, she almost fell off

Smothering a yelp of surprise

She smiled through tear filled eyes.
