~::~ Starry Wishes ~::~

never_seen_stars_by_destinyblue-d7w2dzi

She wished upon a star surreal

A wish she thought was unreal

Beautiful life, a fairy tale

Even happy endings prevail

And that someday they’d walk down the aisle, as couple

 

It happened on a starry night

She walked home in the pale moonlight

She almost tripped upon a stone

And he helped lest she broke a bone

That was the day they first met, pure love at first sight

 

They kept meeting ‘neath cherry trees

They met even when the lakes freeze

Their fates tied by heavens above

It was meant to be, timeless love

Until on a doomed night he was called to the seas

 

Every day she stood wistfully

Reminiscing their moments fondly

The cherry trees, the lakes & moor

And now the future seems unsure

Yet she wished upon every star passionately

impatience_by_destinyblue-d8muebh

Hot

Coffee

Warming me

Cheering me up

On cold wintry day

Harsh breeze grazes my neck

Making me squirm & search warmth

In depths of scalding caffeine

Scattered across orange horizon

Are wispy clouds blocking a rising Sun

~::~ Soppy Reveries ~::~

___the_waters_of_march_by_picolo_kun-d8mv4cg

I stood there waiting ‘neath the trees

My curls blown astray by the breeze

                A cloud burst from murky sky’s seams

                Sending down showers like jet streams

The wind bellowed with howling screams

While I stood, upholding my dreams

Of fairy tales and knightly themes

Mellow moors and dancing moonbeams

The sky lights up and showers ease

While I’m lost in my reveries

~::~ 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 ~::~

 10250326_985909228104339_4188116652871711702_n

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!! 😀

~::~ Cobbled Lanes ~::~

11008389_971190676232443_8843203530992173357_n

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 😥

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! 🙄

~::~ 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!
