Pritha's pomes

Some rhyme, romance and a wee bit reason maybe, bear with me ?

To my Lord of all contradictions…

Pristine as a snow clad mountain; You are in the hues of twilight

Destroyer of evil with anger unleashed; You are the easiest to appease of all Gods

For One who swallowed poison, Your name is “auspicious”

Serpent bound and covered in ash, Your thoughts dispel every bondage

Epitome of every sensual thought; You free us from our own egos

Your matted locks, the very wellspring of Eternal Purity

You are Shiva, You are Parvati,

You are the One where the ‘Twain met and remained immortal

To You, I offer my self,

Without You, I find my every contradiction

Within You, my every resolution…

Weekly Writing Challenge: 1000 Words

thousand words

A thousand words to write my dreams?

A thousand wings to make them fly?

Not really, I do not need that much

A song in my heart, maybe a thought too shy.


A thousand ways to tell a lie?

A thousand words to prove a truth?

Is life really that verbose?

That silence wouldn’t see me through?


A thousand colors to paint each day

A thousand stars to count each night

I want it all and more this time

Tarry a while my heart, before you take flight.


A thousand battles to be won within

A thousand more rage without

Some worth fighting, some not so much

A thousand moments of self doubt.


A thousand joys and then some more

A thousand sorrows with tears galore

Take your pick, live your life

For every moment lost, even a thousand wouldn’t suffice…


The challenge said a 1000 words for a given image, … these are mine.. less than a thousand but they are the ones that came to me when I looked at this image…
