The Turns

As the wheels turn, she feels both strong and weak. Riding uphill, she found the freedom that flying didn’t offer.

She wished the clock turned back, to leave those words unsaid, so that their relationship wouldn’t have taken that turn.

His solicitude followed her in all turns of their lives; Both returned back to normal, but that’s a new normal.

The last two tiny tales above can be read collectively or also be treated as individual ones.

Unlit Days

He’s injured. She slipped away from healing.

Butterfly Effect

Butterfly effect implies a huge effect being produced as a result of every small action. But, don’t we also create dire consequences by failing to take strong decisions at times? The following is a micro poem penned with this thought.

With each decision, colours spread.
With each indecision, colours piled.
Wings flapped, now with added tenacity!

Dream Comes Alive

“She was distressed looking at the slow-moving days until her victorious move on the dais was recorded in slow motion.
