The Miracle

Seven-year old Gia's mother was very sick.

Gia was heart-broken to see her industrious mother bed-ridden.

She could not afford to lose her only parent.

"Only a miracle can save her," the doctor answered after checkup. 

Gia knew where miracles were available.

She did remember the real-story her mother had told her.

Gia lost no time to visit that place- the local church.

That Lady In Red

She looked bewitching in the red off-shoulder dress.

He just couldn't wait to lay his hands on her.

He put his right arm around her lissome waist and holding her right hand in his left, entered the hotel's elevator.

He continued his conversation by saying sweet-nothings to his ladylove. 

He was aware that all his activities were being watched.

The Treasure Hunt

A multi-billionaire died.

His fortune was to be equally divided amongst his grandsons.

As per his will, a secret treasure would belong to the grandson, who cracked the clue-

"Sandwiched by water and greenery- no access by road even if you try; 

After reaching, you'll find it guarded by the one with the keen eye..."


Entire estate could be accessed by road.

Where was the treasure?

You, Me, And You #UMeUBlogHop

You once professed your deep love for me- 

Believing you, "You & Me" merged as one! 

I accepted your "Team WE" proposal & identity;

Complied with your ideas of intimacy & fun. 

Fought with my upset family; it was you I chose.

Just you in my heart & eyes, I severed all my ties. 

"Till death do us apart", we took our holy vows. 

Our inter-religion marriage would sure win & rise. 

They warned- "All this is a lie, eye-wash, smart plan"-

I was yet another virgin prey for you & your group. 

Promising you my all, I offered myself as your top fan. 

Consumed by your love, I was the flavour in your soup.

I dreamt my life would be an eternal honeymoon-

With you by my side as king, I'd feel like a queen.

My high castles in the air collapsed pretty soon.

You metamorphosed into a beast, unheard & unseen.

I tried to keep my faith, persevere, & to keep pace, 

You & your family forced me into the conversion.

I was simply a prize-trophy, forgotten after the race.

I bore you heirs; you exploited fruits of our relation.

Make Hay While The Sun Shines

"It's you, again!" the border security-officer encountered Raunaq.

It was Raunaq's fifth cross-border trip via his truck that month.

"Am sure you are smuggling something inside this stack of hay”.

"Please check, officer. I’ll wait." Raunaq confidently said just like he had said before. 

The border-force checked.

They even used metal-detectors.

The Bluebirds

The bluebirds were nowhere to be found.

She was trying to spot them like crazy. 

She had always wanted to research and write a book about the bluebirds. 

Many could be spotted in that eco-zone where she had grown up. 

Wasn’t the spot near the river their favorite place?
