Flesh and bones lie in a heap
Men, women, children weep!
Bloodthirsty, the weapons they wield
Remorse none for their sinful deed
Nor shame, or dread, or fear deep
How long this power will they keep?
Remind them how the tides swell
Listen carefully to the death knell;
When evil prevails, dark forces abide
Anguished voices fail to subside
Karma watches, records does keep
Seeds they sowed, so must they reap
Time renders mercy only to the meek
The Punisher arrives and will seek
The fearsome who now fearful seem
Bloodied swords will lose their sheen
This twist of fate, how events turn
Destiny can make, break, and spurn,
Tormentors humbled, tormented so
Cowering cowards, all in Death’s row!

I am just ME … a soul streaming across constellations, over eons of turbulent changes and tranquil noises, perturbed by the visions that engulf me and ruffled by the oft complacence that challenges the change. Yet, I must travel further across the galaxies, in search of the ultimate metamorphosis. Until then, I sojourn in this life, engrossed in my earthly callings of a wife, mother, professional, writer, dreamer, and seeker.
On this blog you will find a spectrum of fiction, poetry, reviews, thoughts, snippets, inspiration, experiences, voices, concerns, excerpts, and everything that the soul has gathered in her fold, over years of reading, searching, finding, losing, and discovering. I regularly indulge in various creative pursuits, like crochet, experimental cooking, reading, and writing, and I hold a managerial/editorial role in a financial services organization with a global footprint.
For a long time, social media hijacked my personal writing space, as I was sharing more on Facebook and writing Tweet-sized poetry on Twitter. Social media is instant but temporary gratification. Ultimately, a writer needs their own space, and personal blogging provides that space. I had started a blog more than a decade ago but all things need to be infused with new life, emerge in a new avatar, and so it is with my new blog space.
Let your love and encouragement pour into Blue Pen Strokes.
