Ellude 

Trapped, I look around at the invisible bars that confine me.  Unable to move, unable to explore, we lie in our dimunitive spaces. Leading our lives, incarcerated and plodding along in this pedestrian lifestyle.  A convict in our own skins.  My mind however, the ever elluding escape artist, it plays truent with the constitution of…

Its that time of the year!

The Tree is out is all its glory, stands tall, adorned with tinsel, eclectic ornaments and lights. On it hangs baubles gold and red, glittery gift boxes, golden luminous reindeer and bows! Berries and bells further adding to the enchantment.The golden star shimmering right on top. Fairy lights twinkling away. The slight nip in the…

The Longest Mile

On the starting line I stand, my heart pounding against my ribcage. Alive, the heart beating, pulse rising.  My nervous fingers shiver as i tighten my laces. Nervousness taking over, my entire body quivers. The mind flooded, with a 100 memories, memories of hope, of sacrifice, memories of what it took to reach this point….

In Concerto 

As i switched on the music , the sound of the piano spoke to my soul. I felt at one with the music. Each note whispered to me , whispers full of promises , whispers full of hope , whispers that gave me goosebumps , whispers that stirred my soul.  I was lost in a world…

Pigtails and Popsicles 

The little girl that i once was , spent many a hot sunny day after school , all dressed in her school uniform , hair tied into little pigtails , treating herself to popsicles and beating the summer heat. Ice pops have been a huge highlight of my childhood , as I presume might be…

As the curtain falls

As the curtain falls , we see the young knight enveloped in  silence and calm. As he sat by the banks of the river, motionless , as still as a log of wood.  He has been so brave for so long , as his life turned into a battlefield , never showing to the world,…

Paradise Island 

Yesterday morning, I woke up to the sounds of pouring rain, as it crashed into my window, as it fell torrentially on the trees , wiping them clean of all the dust and mud and grime that had settled during this past burning and boiling summer. All the birds had gone into hiding, probably having…
