A Little Injury

Day twenty nine of NaPoWriMo. Today’s prompt is to write a poem in the style of I Remember by Joe Brainard. Another true story. I remember, when I was about ten, I remember, I was playing around, I remember, being in the front yard, I remember, I had a stick or twig, I remember, it […]

The Mysterious Lady

Day twenty eight of NaPoWriMo. Today’s prompt is to write a story in the form of a poem. Also the poem should start from the end and then work it’s way to the beginning. Thankfully I have had this story that I’ve been waiting to pen down. This is a true story. I wonder if […]

Banking

Day twenty seven of NaPoWriMo. Today’s prompt is to write a poem with long lines. Each line is to have seventeen syllables. This is an instance from today. A gust of hot air, kept blowing across my face, my trip to the bank. The most boring place, with plenty of processes, no one seems to […]

The need for Feminism

Day twenty six of NaPoWriMo. The prompt is to write a poem that’s like a sea shanty, but with a question and answer style. With the answer being the same for every question. I thought of a few recent political campaigns that used this. I thought I’ll dig up a campaign from the past which […]

The Glutton – A Biography

Day twenty five of NaPoWriMo. Today’s prompt is to write a poem taking a line from a different poem. I chose to take a line from ‘three little pigs’ by Roald Dahl. I know how full my tummy’s bulging, But that’s never stopped me from wanting, To eat till I can’t eat anymore. That’s the […]

Pollution

Day twenty four of NaPoWriMo. Today’s prompt is to concoct a poem out of two sets of words. One set of words that are distinctly poetic, and the other set containing mundane words. Waiting for an evanescent cool breeze, Willing the traffic signal to turn green. Craving a break in a bucolic place, Trapped in […]

Choosing a career

Day twenty three of NaPoWriMo. Today’s prompt is to write a sonnet. The type of sonnet was left to our discretion. I thought the English Sonnet looked the easiest. Four days behind on my challenge I don’t want to make things worse for myself. All of us at some point of time wonder, What we […]

Coral Reef

Day twenty two of NaPoWriMo. Today’s prompt is to write a poem observing earth day. A long time ago, when I was in school, I watched a documentary on TV. In a few moments I was mesmerized, T’was the most stunning thing I’d ever seen. A planet mostly covered by water, Surely had to have […]

Gingerbread House

Day twenty one of NaPoWriMo. Today’s prompt is to write about a fairy tale or myth from the perspective of a character who is of lesser importance. I thought I’ll choose the perspective of an inanimate but important character. I lived in a jungle for quite some years, It was the only home I ever […]

Mithrandir

Day twenty of NaPoWriMo. Today’s prompt is to write about something or someone without mentioning about them. I thought it’s time to try fanfiction again. Looking like a frail and fragile old man, Vanquisher of the Balrog, Durin’s Bain, Beneath his wise, calm and mild exterior, Is a powerful force during his time. The rider […]
