The Fall Leaves…!

Everywhere I turn to 
I see the trees decorated with yellow and orange leaves 
A rich kaleidoscope of brilliant colours 
Some red, some brown, some mixed 
Elegant in their magnificent grandeur
Hitherto, those were the green leaves
But fading, turning into colourful colours
Creating a glowing contrast
Amazing hue
Radiant leaves yet their life is ebbing away

They were once the lush foliage of the summer
Now in a tidal pool of decline as they bow to death
Yet in dying, they exude glamour
But the rhythm of nature must be obeyed
And the trees must shed their leaves
And the leaves must fall and be trampled upon
For every living thing must bow when the time is ripe
And the ground is the recipient
For nothing last forever

War And Peace….!

I woke up today reading different versions and analysis with regards to the spate of killings in our world and especially this murderous lunacy of yesterday.

It’s quite frightening. Disheartening too, with trails of excruciating pains to the families caught up in these unfortunate incidences. No doubt, we live in uncertain times and the World seems askew. Man’s invention has become a weapon of mass destruction. Nothing is in sync anymore. I’ve read different views, opinions, and possible solutions to abate these ugly incidents happening around the globe. These ungodly acts instill fear into us and most people become too scared, afraid and frustrated… Not knowing who’s to be hit next. Some become too edgy and desperate for solutions. Some further wear a coat of hate towards others different from them. Towards humanity.  Continue reading

The Daily Prompt – Coincidence!

And the lady died.

Could it be a strange coincidence that she died on her birthday? I am yet to understand this phenomenon which happens occasionally in the passage of time.

Not just that she died. She died under very strange circumstances. She was a sister to a friend. A tear dropped from my eyes as I read her obituary on my Facebook Newsfeed three days ago. Continue reading

The Daily Prompt – Sympathy!

I remembered when I lost my father some years ago, expressions of sympathy flooded from across the globe by people who are connected to my family one way or another. Friends and family members and even strangers who heard about his demise wanted to reach out to us with their compassion. Some, who have experienced the death of a loved one empathized with us and shared their experiences. Continue reading

The Exit Of A Music Icon…!

Farewell to Donald Ray Williams.  

And we miss a legend of country music. He bowed to death on September 8, 2017, in Mobile, Alabama due to emphysema at age 78. 

You were among the pioneers of good country music.

Thank you for the inspiring songs. Thank you for the great music.

Listen to the Radio! My Best Friend. I Believe…. Were among the tracks I really enjoyed.
