A Fairytale

Broken castles
Dead genies
Unkilled monsters 
Unsaved princesses
hopeless screams
Armour pierced ----

No fairytale

Dear Me

PROMPT: Dear Me  | GROUP: In This Together

Dear 20-year-old me,

You should be a freshman in an US university(hopefully) around this time. How's everything going on? Is uni life as you've always expected? Do you find the true self you crazily dreamed about in the new cultural environment? I know it is all a bit hasty, as you, like me, always need some time to break the cocoon.

Three years away and I know you still love to look back. Still indecisive. Still sunk in deep thoughts...

Home is a small charcoal pencil

Home is clay under my fingernails and in my hair
Home is watercolors blending on a page
Home is my sketch-full sketchbook
Home is eraser pieces everywhere I look
Home is acrylics and paintbrushes
Home is art

The Home I lost.

PROMPT: At Home  | GROUP: In This Together

I breathed the cool air of the beautiful Katoomba falls, I stood at the bottom of the huge Stone walls of the Blue Mountains, I walked on the long wooden bridges that lay amidst the great trees all around and heard the gushing of water and the sound of small birds. The green surrounded me as I walked. 
I stood in the streets of one of the many small towns of NSW. I saw the small shops and the roadside...

To - You Know Who You Are

To...

You know who you are. This is such a state of turmoil.

Who are you now? Are you... free of this mess? Are you home, safe and warm in his arms? Have you been outside with friends, laughed and walked in the sun? Laid on the beach, watching the stars? Written stories with the view of a sleepy beachside town?

Simple things, everyday things, things I did every day... Mere months ago. And now...

Look what's happened. Look at...

Wilder Than Wild Thoughts

PROMPT: The Peace of Wild Things  | GROUP: In This Together

When I'm blind
Fear constricting my lungs
When I've taken the poison
Head wracked with pain, I've been stung

My thoughts run wild
I couldn't control them even if I tried
This overthinking, it won't stop
What can I do when my brain's been fried?

If I can
If I can remember
I go back to the river
Or in my head, back to that September

Cool sparkling water
Runs down my face and hands
Running back down to the...

Predictability

FREE WRITING  | GROUP: In This Together

Recalling a day,
When the bed begged me to stay,
As the alarm clock bickered,
 
The appeal of my room,
When leaving too soon,
For the desk at the office,
 
But now stuck at home,
Aching to roam,
Restricted by a virus,
 
Entertainment exhausted,
Plans thwarted,
Attempts at normality quickly aborted,
 
It’s increasingly dull,
Falling into the lull,
 
Of days without dates,
Hours without minutes,
And life without spirit,
 
Diary left empty,
Boredom aplenty, ...

The Night Sky

PROMPT: The Peace of Wild Things  | GROUP: In This Together

When I stare into the night sky
blinking stars reside in my eyes
---- their flickering light beacons 
the darkness around a girl
heartbroken and perplexed, so that
she could see her path ahead

O the night sky
canvas of life on which 
I wish I could paint a permanent smile
the night breeze gently patting my hair
lovely grass giving me the millionth hug
purest peace budding in my heart
with the magic from afar

Under the night sky ...

On a Hilltop

PROMPT: The Peace of Wild Things  | GROUP: In This Together

A lonely hilltop is the best place to
    Find the settled feeling, that
        You are under control
            Of everything

A windy hilltop is the best place to
    Calm distressed senses, making
        You feel scared for 
            What could happen

A grassy hilltop is the best place to
    Hide, when everywhere else
        Seems to be crowding
            You, suffocating your space

A high hilltop is the best place to ...

Where the Wild Things Aren't | Poetic

PROMPT: The Peace of Wild Things  | GROUP: In This Together

Peace and quiet
Breeze carries away the worries
It's nice here
Where the wild things aren't
Stream trickles by
My hair floats on the water
Small fish swirl by my face
Where the wild things aren't
Nobody bothers me
Light and silent
Flowers and clover sprinkled everywhere
Where the wild things aren't

Water

PROMPT: Extraordinary in the Ordinary  | GROUP: In This Together

A mirror, yet transparent- all dependent on the sky.  Holds a thousand mysteries for those who could not fly.
A single drop's a traveller, travelled across the earth by flight. Identical in all its glory, a sparkling, enchanting sight.
Nourish the earth a flood from heaven, natures battle, an Armageddon.
Without it the roots would not grow, or the soil lush and open.  Connected as one is a drink for the thirsty, a voice yet so unspoken.
A shower of...

Dear Me,
... Anvita Varma. That's our name right now. I wonder what it would be in the future. I'll always be a Varma. But, my hope is that you are reading this letter when you've had children and grandchildren of your own. You've retired and are diving through old memories. Nostalgia and all that. Maybe you found baby videos and pictures, writing from when you were in grade school. You always did love to write anything. You tried your...

The Beauty of our Mother

PROMPT: The Peace of Wild Things  | GROUP: In This Together

    Growing up is hard. It's absolutely scary. I've realized that the older you grow, the easier it is to see the darkness that lurks in all corners of the world. In our childish eagerness, we fling our rose-tinted glasses off, excited to find out what more the world has to offer us. In a way, I guess I am happy that my parents still try to shield me, even though it gets quite annoying sometimes.

darkness, dissipated

PROMPT: The Peace of Wild Things  | GROUP: In This Together

when darkness floats in,
threatening to smother 
all happiness and love,
i find solace in the simple things.
a pretty leaf,
a flower that survived despite the odds.
with the clear sky above me,
it is impossible to feel shut down.
instead, i feel alive.
sun, wind, rain, night.
all parts of nature and life.
and i remember that, 
though the darkness persists,
there are the stars to shed light
on those that look up.

I’m really close achieving one of my dreams, finishing a novel, and I’m truly excited about it, like she is. Whenever I feel like my dreams are too big to reach, I always listen to this song to lighten my mood.
