Scree – A Poem

The path was strenuous and rough,
the boulders draped with screes,
the world shrouded with ghoulish grime,
the aura had a sadist charm

The avians, the fauna all vanished the scene,
the trees howling with a ​devilish scream
the clouds a shade darker than before
Grayness gripped the ocean’s shore

And in such nature’s caper
she sauntered ahead
one step at a time,
refusing to give up

many times she crumbled and fall,
but never deterred
for she was a deviant soul

Newark To LA

Ckonfab

Today I was on a coast to coast flight from Newark to LA. As much as I am a morning person, I dread early morning flights. Besides, yesterday evening I was in a water park, making it all the more difficult to convince myself to get up 4 in the morning.

I somehow made it to the flight. And as I entered the plane, I saw a sleepy looking flight attendant forcefully greeting her passengers. I don’t know what came to my mind, and in that moment of trice, I thought of playing a little prank on her.

I greeted her and asked, “in the morning rush I didn’t check the gate number. Hope this flight is going to San Francisco.”

Her lethargic self got some renewed energy and she declared that I was on the wrong flight.

I smiled and told her that I was just teasing her. She…

Three Posts Using the Word Whimsical

Hey Dear Fellow bloggers, hope your week is going fine. Here is my next attempt to write three different posts using the word “Whimsical” –  A Thought, a poem, and a flash fiction. I am providing links to all the three posts below. Let me know your views and thoughts.

Always appreciate your presence here. Stay Charming and Beautiful.

Whimsical – A Thought

His eyes whimsically played with her thoughts and she puckishly made her musing go wild

Whimsical – A Poem

His fedora tilted to an angle covering his visage
and his eyes hanging from the lorgnette
blurring in the shades of his miscreant vice
the visceral feelings held closely to the frail smile,
the words skeet rapidly without making much sense

He tried his whimsical wit but then to no avail
such was the aura she draped him with
whenever she appeared unannounced
in the thoughts of his deviant mind

Whimsical – A Flash Fiction 

She was a mystery, no one knew where she came from. She hardly spoke and often used her alluring smile to respond. Her gothic looks were not helping either, for everyone wanted to accost her. And her reserved stature only made her more desirable. The men tried everything, cajoling, coaxing, telling tall tales, wearing the best attire, but she didn’t pay any hood and kept locked her mystic demeanor in her well-knitted cocoon.

Years passed on. Few lost interests, few new ones added to her admirer list and some surged back when they saw her gorgeous sight. But nothing changed, she was as mysterious as before.

And then he appeared with his 5’o clock shadow and carefree eyes. His puckish wit and sensuous talks peeled her inhabitation one layer at a time. Then one day she breached her self imposed limit. She looked into his eyes and with a soft harmonious tone enquired his name. But the tables had turned this time, he gently smiled and assumed silence, for now, it was his turn. A vengeance from some past yonder resurfaced at that momentary trice.
