The Moon & The Girl

Day 80

Not so soon called out the moon,

If only I could see you a while longer.

Alas, she turned her back again

And walked into the room.

Every day the scene would repeat

The moon would wait patiently

To get a glimpse of her deep dreamy eyes

Oblivious, the girl stood in the darkness of the night

Looking vacantly at the moon

With longing and hopeless desires.

Trees without Leaves

Day 79

The trees have shed their leaves

Only the bare empty branches remain

Looking like a wrinkled old man’s outstretched arms.

Can Do Better?

Day 78

I wish the world becomes a better place to live.

No misery, treachery or guilt.

All I wish for is –

Happiness, harmony and peace.

Each of us spread love, bring smiles

and care of the betterment of the other.

We need to be better humans with every passing day.

Is it fair for me to still hope this way?

Driving Away

Day 76

When long stretches of empty roads begin to unwind

You secretly wish the journey never comes to an end.

All that surrounds are lush green trees,

Under the overcast skies.

Colourful bougainvillea leaves,

a book and a friend for company.

Soul of a Dragon

Day 74

Long and lonely she stood

Waiting for the storm to pass.

Many dreadful, angry faces crossed her.

Not one friendly, helpful smile.

“Just a little while longer.”

She said to herself.

Soon came the time,

With a shrug of her shoulders

and a quick sudden pull,

She tore off the shackles,

Unfurling her dragon wings full.

A deep breath later, she took flight,

Leaving behind humanity and all of it’s supposed might.
