At One Point In Time

just a little while
a shooting star appears
the heart jolts in joy

a face 
of anxiety
when kissed
by the sun
at midday June
under the canopy
of blue

Denying Marks Of Time

behind patted powder
lies nicely those wrinkles
marks of the past
yet wisdom keeps growing
fresh and supple
ironing out the wrinkles

This is my first participation in One Single Impression Prompt 280 : Wrinkle

If They Could Recall

In the pin drop silence of the night, sudden sounds of rain pouring,
at first just in little forms, I wanted to count them one by one
when the sounds became so beautiful -
like tiny drums' rolls the minute little droplets burst one after another upon touching the roof surface,
then they glided down the gutter and gathered as a small lively pool at the end of the road.

I started shivering when the coldness cloaked around, 
did the droplets feel what I felt,
 did they ever think the moment when the sun would drink them up, leaving no traces at all, 
just a remembrance of where and when -
would they be shivering?

Time, how it moves on with no u-turns,
It teaches us to face the bumps and potholes of life,
It would be nice leaving those gruelling moments behind,
Closed in the history of time, now open for that light -
which isn't too far away and will be reached at some time.
Time moves on and on, let's follow it and enjoy the ride!

B l a n k

It is invisible in the whiteness of the sheet or darkness of the night,

It is there and it is called B L A N K,

And it does occupy the mind,  at times ideas all frozen,

B L A N K rules!

B L A N K ?

There was once a pretty girl called Lyne,
Who wanted to become a beauty queen,
She groomed herself everyday,
With beautiful flowers in her hair,
A crown in mind made her forget to stay lean.
