~::~ Lonely Warrior ~::~

This time I’m combining 3 prompts, one that I created for myself! ;)

My close friend Rajlakshmi posted her trip to the Wollongong Harbour on her photoblog – Twinkled Eyed Traveller

Somehow my muse started frolicking around for want to make that pic as an inspiration and with Sunday Whirl and Three Word Wednesdays giving me such wonderful words I just had to get it all out of my system!!

So my darling Raji, thank you for the pic and here’s the poem! (I hope I did justice to your pic)

~::~ Lonely Warrior ~::~

Perched by the blue pristine waters

I sat hopeless and dismayed

Yearning for an eager soul

To tread along my lonely quay

Like the winding river

Uncut by life’s ephemera

I stand my post day and night

Guiding sea-vessels to terra firma

 

Cobalt sober sky as my umbrella

Delicate flowers by the harbour

Jagged stones evolving the shore

With foamy waves hitting in ardour

 

Cobbled pathways leading downstream

Filled with shiny round tiny pebbles

Glistening dew drops like fresh cut diamonds

Lay nestled among the grass petals

 

Awaiting a content soul

On dark murky nights

I stand there fierce and tall

In my white armour, a lonely knight

~::~ Sinister Mister ~::~

This week’s Magpie Tales prompt was pretty darn scary!

It did leave me shivering!

But here’s my take!

~::~ Sinister Mister ~::~

clown 1

Sinister looking clown

New in downtown

He stands there tall

By the decorative wall

Pompous red nose

Clandestine repose

Sparkling sapphire eyes

Sly impish guise

Secretive appearance

With an evil essence

An all pervading smirk

Leaving psyche berserk

Sending shivers down my spine

As we walk by the gargantuan sign

Trundling by the store mighty fast

To get away from the gigantic cast

Scared to my wits I jog away

While he stands tall, smirking my way!

~::~ Cobbled Lanes ~::~

My close friend Tarun posted this pic he had clicked in Leuven and somehow my muse prodded me to write something for the pic. And I promised him I’d give him the picture courtesy so tingu dude – here’s the poem for your pic and thanks for inspiring my muse!! :D

~::~ Cobbled Lanes ~::~

Narrow dusty lanes

Pebbled floors with stains

Cycles parked by walls

Children creating squalls

Summer’s on its way

Schools out, yay!!

 

Cobbled narrow lanes

Rusty window panes

Temperatures soaring

Birds all chirping

Gentle zephyr blows

Flowers and bees repose

 

Through myriad winding lanes

To the walls, Bicycles chained

Summer’s just begun

Playful spirits undone

Until next year’s snow fury

People happy and merry

~::~ Midnight Wanderer ~::~

This time it took me 3 days to complete this poem :cry:

But I’m glad that i completed it.. I started off with an abstract genre and somewhere down the line a story just creeped in! :roll:

~::~ Midnight Wanderer ~::~

images

Night subdued

Moonlight’s cue

The silence expelled

Like an Angel’s Spell

He lost track of time

In her voice sublime

Like the science of chemistry

He fell in love helplessly

But fate’s act of smite

On this saintly night

His destiny withheld

Until wrestling heart bled

All love lost

And loneliness accosts

With overflowing memories

Yet heart’s empty!

Like a crack in the mirror

Life changed forever

Like sinking pebbles in lake

Near existence filled his wake

And now like the breeze

He wanders among trees!

~::~ Silence ~::~

Now that I have brushed off the layers of dust that had gathered my blog, I am trying to write more.

Phew! Getting back to writing is tough, it is! There were days when everything was an inspiration and I  could write 3-4 poems a day and then there is now – where it takes me 1-2 days to complete one poem!! :cry:

So well, here’s another poem from the struggling poet factory! :oops:

~::~ Silence ~::~

cherry_blossom_night_by_esmira-d3h7bmd 

In my dreams

Sifting moonbeams

I feel at peace

My heart’s at ease

I sit gazing at iridescent moon

Oh this silence is such a boon

 

Moving through clouds

Like a loner in crowds

Silvery mist swirls around me

‘neath cherry blossom tree

I sit gazing at iridescent moon

Oh this silence is such a boon

 

Harmonized glimmer of million fireflies

Attributing onset of a titian sunrise

As russet rays pervade the sky

Time to wake up, my heart cries

While a merry songbird croons

Oh the silence was such a boon!

~::~ Dusty Chaos ~::~

Finally, I decided today was the day I’m gonna dig my dead blog, clear it of the dust that had gathered from an idle writer-blocked mind and thought – this is it. I’m gonna revive my blog, no matter what it takes, no matter how dumb, stupid or idiotic my writings get –  I am gonna start with a clean slate!

But I needed inspiration, like an artist searching a muse –  I sat down with my laptop wondering where to start and dang! – Rajlakshmi posts a prompt for Magpie Tales and well that’s where I thought I should begin! The Magpie Tales Prompt –  neat idea! And so here we are back to writing poems, giving the idle mind a muse to work on, an inspiration, a place to begin with!! Identical to the dust that had settled on my blog – here’s a Dusty Chaos for the prompt!

~::~ Dusty Chaos ~::~

action figures Edith Vonnegut

I clean the house and clean again

But the dust never settles

Sometimes it just swirls around

Standing like tea-leaves in a kettle

 

I wash the pans

Vacuum spiraling stairs,

And even tidy the cellars

I sweep the chimney

Wipe the doors

And even cobwebs on pillars

 

I clean and clean my house again

For the dust bunnies never leave

They curl upon figurines of toys

While I brush them in my grief!

 

I clean my house and clean again

And yet the dirt just lingers

I feel there are angels flying everywhere

Firing curses through their fingers

 

I’m tired of trying to clean up

I ain’t cleaning, no more

I don’t care if angels scatter dirt

Like mini polka dotted décor!

Exasperated, I give up

Let filth be piled up on the floor!
