Prompt Nights – We tend to smile in the exact same language – [27]

smiling of eyes
sincere and pure emotion
the eyes never lie

when someone smiled at me
it pierced through bad things of life
all was well again

a ray of sunshine
a smile is so contagious
you pass it on

the presence of heart
sharing a smile is a gift
it lights up the world

Prompt Nights – On Popular Demand [1] – Silence


hush, my dear, hush
I kept my silence
longer than I thought
but then things are
bubbling up inside
they’ve got to be released
or else I pop or crack up
you said things won’t change
you said you won’t ever leave me
you said you love me no matter what
you said a lot of things
things that made me tingle
things that made me melt
but oh, how naive I could be
I thought you won’t hurt me
I thought you won’t leave me
I thought things would be the same
let me tell you this right now
I cried, I felt the pain and hurt
and then time helped me to move on
I knew it wasn’t my loss, it was yours


the weather’s brilliant – was able to swim!

snorkelling under the sea
deep silence of nature
admiring life down under
fishes and corals
sharing experience

Adventurous as she was, she walked further and further from her friends
They have agreed to hike the Black Forest and other places at the weekends
Looking at all the exotic plants and trees, she didn’t noticed she’s getting lost
And that she’s moving around going back and forth and the paths crisscrossed
By the time it was getting dark, she didn’t know what to do, how to get help
She bumped into something mossy and spooky, that’s when she uttered a yelp
Only silence in that eerie place, she’s imagining a lot of different scenario
Will she be killed by bears, will she die like a saint, this is what she foreknow
She waits; such tight corner she has entered and she doesn’t seem to get out
“Help! Can anybody hear me?” she wish for someone to help her find her route

silent prayer
conversation with God
in the Cathedral

no one around
a place to contemplate
and forgive the past

such stillness
the trail to the mountain
reaching the summit

admiring view from the top
oh what a blessing

a benediction
sacred sign of quietness
commune with nature
