A blank white screen,
Stands staring at my face.

White letters,
Lay scattered on a black platter,
In front of my eyes,

Emotions unlock my mind,
And set my fingers on motion.

A new story is created,
And saved.

A writer’s lifeline.

Rising and falling
of waves —
Her breath

Hues of blue
kissed by the amber rays of sunlight—
Her smooth, glowing skin

and melodious breeze —
Her mesmerizing voice

marshmallow foams —
Her salty kisses

The unexplored depth —
Her dark secrets

Blackness at night —
Her soothing silence

Tsunami — 
Her unpredictable rage

All marine inhabitants —
Her priceless children

Ocean has life

Please save her.

Man is mortal
yet his quest for a long life
remains immortal
 — Chirag

We returned to our hotel room,
After a long journey,
I was exhausted, so was he.

The weather was cold,
He needed warmth.

He carried me in his bare brawny arms,
To the soft, comfy bed,
And gently lay me down.

Keeping me watch,
He removed his tops, then his pants.

He then hurriedly unzipped me,
And removed his towel.

He rushed to the bathroom,
To take a hot shower.

Leaving me alone and open.

I Trapped

“I live in a cottage in the deep woods. Come over for dinner, but not before 9 pm sharp,” an invitation too difficult to resist for a thirty-three-year-old bachelor.

Evan’s old car bumped down the gravel, screeching to a halt.

He looked at his watch.

Twenty minutes to nine.


Editor’s picks for the GiaB prompt challenge #8: Apparel

Photo by on

I would rather wear a priceless soul,
Weaved with the threads of compassion,
Kindness and love,
Than an expensive apparel,
That would soon be worn out and gone.

It’s time to show lots of love and support for the much awaited and outstanding editor’s pick stories for our fortnightly GiaB…


Thrifty Words Challenge #11: Late

Photo by on

Karen’s feverish body radiated heat like the burning charcoal in the tannour. Her barking coughs threatened to rip out her throat into pieces. She inhaled in short, quick gasps, desperate to revive her collapsed air sacs.

Too late.

She welcomed the deadly virus, not wearing her mask.

Now. No escape.

Thrifty-word prompt theme challenge #14: Fever

Photo by on

She pricked my finger to feed on a drop of blood.

I killed her in a fit of rage.

Now I suffer from malaria, dengue, chikungunya, yellow fever, filariasis, encephalitis, tularemia, dirofilariasis, Ross River fever, Barmah Forest fever, Zika fever, and Rift Valley fever.

Her grief-stricken family sought their revenge.
