I am drawn to the sea
and its salty spray,
my thoughts preserved,
far beyond the shore.
I am lost,
I am found,
with every wave,
from the sea I was born,
and to the sea,
I will return,
when I leave.

She is more than just
a beautiful girl.
She is everything
that is beautiful
about the world.
New found habits - Writing prompt
Look at the world now, look how much it has changed. Do you remember how life used to be, before lockdown? Do you even think about it anymore? Most of us have gotten used to this life. The life with a mask, the life with restrictions on travel, the life with sanitizers and thermal scanners. This pandemic sure has changed a lot, especially in our daily lives.
I for one, get to stay at home and work, which is nice in a way, cuz I don't have to go to office, I save on monthly expenses on food and travel, though rent is still being wasted, every month, but I've no choice. But this feels like the new normal. I stopped this and that, cause basically I can...
What was the last thing to catch your mind
and captivate your inner dialogue?
What were the whisperings you heard
in the corners we dared not gaze upon?
Is it just a brush with the hand of madness
or has it sunk its talons in deep
are the voices framed in unison
or is the dissonance keeping you from sleep?
Is the white knight still talking backwards
with a tea party in full swing
or did the delusions finally subside
into your familiar fever dream?
This game of questions has no apparent end
nor is their much hope of enlightenment
at the bottom of the empty inkwell
Sometimes, we become stuck in the same routine and seek comfort in the way things are now. It feels the safest and most familiar to you. When you tend to see the world darker than it truly is, a part of you starts to believe there is no love, friendship or passion that can bring any light back into your life. We remain alone and discontent only when we have given up on our desire for love, connection and something to be passionate about. @PLECCA

Things I have gained
My balcony has one chair.
I think this isn't fair.
It was supposed to be two.
Looks like my sky isn't Blue.
The storm is here.
I don't have fear.
I like the wind.
I have not sinned.
There is no need to fall
I have had it all.
I have everything to gain.
Just a little bit of pain.
I sit on this chair.
Storm is trying to scare.
It has started to rain.
The thunder is insane.
I love it to the core.
I just want it more.
I am the drenched one
Letting it out until I'm done.
So happily enjoying the storm.
I am now in full form.
This Storm has got me trained.
For the things that I have gained.
When you have been gravely injured and think that you can no longer stand up, perhaps there is a thing called "faith" that helps you stay strong and helps you face everything that comes your way.
When the your eyes are filled with darkness , faith is the lamp that will guide your every steps in night.
When you feel lost and lose hope, faith will make you believe that everything is possible.
Faith is all those prayers that we
say hoping that they will be answered.
Faith is the evidence that makes us believe on the existence of unseen powers.
when the time is harsh and you feel troubled just keep faith and you will surely get through...
I long for you.
If you are the fire,
I am a forest of hope,
eagerly awaiting your flame.
Rage like the wind,
let it carry you to me,
so that we may burn together.

Casi desfallecido, aun así se levanta a mirar su anhelo, su estrella - ¡A mil años luz se encuentra! Le grita la razón - Mas él ignora razones, en la penumbra de su noche levanta el rostro hacia su estrella, la que desea abrazar contra su pecho inútilmente, la que le baña el rostro con su luz.

You all must have seen a TED talk or TEDx talk sometime in your life. Imagine YOU are invited to one such event.

How does it help others ?
At times we tend to learn from experiences from other people. Because they hav...
I remember the time, that I used to post prompts week in and week out. Much of my creative edge has been lost over the last few months and Corona has only made it worse, in the sense a more lazier, lethargic me.
It's been like 3 months or so since the lockdown first happened, and recently most places have actually opened up, maybe in light of the falling economy. I am one among many, who got work from home, and probably one among few, who prefer to actually work from home.
In this writing prompt, you're to write how Corona has affected your daily life, some may have lost jobs, some may have to go to work, some love work from home, while some just want to get back to off...
The heat slides out into the evening
clinging to humid accolades
without even a hint of cooling shade
in the arms of our summer sauna
where another Tuesday unfolds
entwined in addictive melodies
spiraling out of another game
of mixtape roulette
Where a twist of the unknown
hits every note just right
and we sing along
bleeding out at the top of our lungs
and knowing every single word
that tells the story we want to be
echoed in guitars and power chords
Flip the tape and let's go again
one more song
one more dance
It's just what we need tonight
