It is a grand wrap for 2021, with 6 of my poems part of this beautiful anthology of poetry and flash fiction – FromOneLine (Vol.2).
Writing in a few words and within limited characters is a great mental challenge. When you have to create using only the provided first-line prompt, it becomes all the more interesting for the writer.
This anthology brings together myriad perspectives and creativity to these first-line prompts. A perfect Christmas gift with a colorful cover and an accompanying bookmark, with talent overflowing through its pages. The second FromOneLine Anthology has been published as an A5 paperback book. It features 41 prompt lines, 113 authors and 457 poems, and flash fiction.
These lines were specially written for the prompt #blindman by #moonmystic. With all our vision we are unable to discern truth from falsehood, genuine people from the fake ones.
What the blind man sees Is more intricate than Any emotion deep Or touch we feel Without true sight With power infinite Sensing silent tremors Buried in murky souls Hearing gentle murmurs When tender hearts spoke With all our vision We know neither fair nor evil For all we know is a countenance Feigning affection or Shielding the devil
It was a rainy day when I heard Tears of a fairy in the rustling leaves Glistening droplets sliding gently From flamboyant Gulmohar petals Taking the fire and fury of summer Into the arms of autumn-in-waiting
There is a sweetness In the bronzed days It is Nature’s scent In honey-tinted tresses Auburn sprinkle of cinnamon Ginger, molasses of her skin She treads on truant sunrays With crunch of dry oak leaves And golden whispers of seasons Caresses me with faint touches Of an orange autumnal breeze
