Fleeting Beauty at Christmas

Note: The collage below has the pictures taken by my very talented friend Parker! Hope you like it. Also the prose below is created in exactly 100 words!!


Fleeting fine beauty said..

Deepest-darkest winter hours,
Twist turn dance frisk in, freezing a moment,
Shiny wink,
I bat my silver lashes,
Fleeting beauty, falling head over heels...without a sound,
Touching the soul, other side of the windowpane,
Settling smoothly, waiting willingly,
Lingering and dreaming of him
Knowing all would be hard,
Knocking would hurt;
Knotless admiration is worth knowledge!
Graceful spark from the confident core!
Tiny yet so intricately inimitably joy formed.
Considering a contribution this Christmas,
“Before rays trace me, look at me, my love!
Warmth in me is the coolest thing...
I felt melting in your arms”...
... fine Snowflake said!

young Indian Bride

Swirl spins eddy goes the world
Curl the eye shadow deep within
Mellow down the sleek cheeks!
Sealed lips with red tone sheen;

Wavy locks, speaking scores of lines
Sweat sweet, bat your lashes
Flame under the sapphire sky
Whispering feather plea to fate

Melody mingle in every move
Standing in the shallow
Unruffled emotion crept soon
Brewing premise awhile really slow

Smile O Smile! Solar flair!!
Dousing in mystery
Stretch fragrance forever
Rising in tranquillity

Brilliant angelic young bride
Begins to believe in being
Beautiful blossoming butterfly
Heart beats truly skips acting shy

Barely reciting apprehension
Before the whole comparing impression
Beyond the promising comprehension
Committing to care and considering compassion!


* To 'bat your lashes' is a piece of 1920s slang meaning to make eyes at someone, the idea being that the enormous false eyelashes in vogue at the time looked like bats when your eyelids fluttered.

** Beautiful picture 'young Indian Bride' is captured by very talented 'Vijay Raghavan', which actually inspired this prose! Interestingly, the prose complies exactly 111 words.

Holding Hands - 55fiction

Note: 55 Fictions is precise form of micro-fiction that refers to the works of fiction limited to a maximum of fifty-five words.
A joy to discover something new!

~ The beautiful picture is captured by my very dear friend ‘Vijay Raghavan’! Thanks buddy :)

55fiction : Holding Hands

Little did she know that he loved her heartily!
That he would never hurt or hinder.

Shivering, trembling soft hand motivated to hold his hands;
He held her tender hands tight giving a slight hint,

Only brace, holding breathe,
She kept her head up,
Passion flows beyond blessing,

Her feet above the floor,
Eventually trusting!

my love my child@ Vijay Raghavan
my love my child (c) vijay raghavan

Okay this is when the whole world types in Google page to find out "how to hold a girl’s hand"...I wonder is it really that difficult. I could not think of laced fingers or curled up hands in an intimate relationship but a warm momentum of letting free followed by faith in building a bond!

For me, holding hand is just as deep and devout as competing to accept the person whole heartily.

Whether they are warm hands or cold, gentle by touch or rough by grasp, hands brings out the person’s persona fairly by choice. It is a convincing certain circumstance of a challenge to make a person feel comfortable and cared!

Perhaps greeting in a personal secured space, gears to hold hands brings a genuine lift in soul!
