SHORT STORY | A December Story

Image credit: Autumn was definitely something I looked forward to, but when autumn comes, winter is to follow. The very realization paints a shadow over the beauty of Autumn. But I’d be a fool to let that diminish the beauty that surrounds me like a blanket. I picked up the dried leaves, wanting to paste them in my journal, so that the beauty of autumn would remain immortalized in my memory. As predicted, nature brought winter, and snow covered every inch of the ground, making it look white and angelic. But the fact was, even hell wouldn’t have been as cold as...

Poetry | Penchant of Sunrise

Image credit: The sun is entirely devoid of darkness It overpowers the universe with its intense flare Feels like an enormous volcanic wind scratching the surface of earth It prides on the mere fact that there can only be ‘one’ who radiates the gleam Temperamental by nature It can be mildly soothing or menacingly fierce Rules with an iron fist and is afraid of none No room for emotional attachment, As blaze is constantly fuelled We aim to be that To transcend all the limits that has been long established To emerge as the imperium that would always...

Poetry | Surging Bulls

Image credit: Rosenfeldtown   Rampaging bulls carve a mighty path beneath an unruffled veil crashing through intricate lattices of sobriety Bells in the sanctum peal over the roar of thundering hooves – tolling ‘Calm! Calm! Calm!’ as gallant pillars erected in times of despair stand firm against the rampaging surge – a surge that started from a sock A sock of unmatched quality soaked in insidious splendour rumpled and thick seeping viscid ick permeating the air with H2S flavour mingled with the insufferable perfume of insouciance It leaves a rancid trail in which blood red toadstools blossom and thrive vacuously...
