The ballad of balloons & other poems

 Poem 1 - The Ballad of the Balloons-

A few blue balloons flew skyward
Time & Gravity
killed their hegira
But the kids eye's were still lost
In the vast skies

Poem 2 - An escape to death:

Hegira from heights
Thy rain drop alights
Torn wings in loaned swings
An escape with torn capes
From thy pan, plop into fire 

Poem 3 - The distant echos...


Ensconced amidst
Thy rumbling heart beats;
Echoes a mild melody;
Listen close; you may hear
Her smile;

Poem 4 - SOS

In paltry beats
some billion feats
Thy earth's heart
thumps & bumps
Thy tabernacle

thy home become.  #stopterrorism

The Helpless - A 55 fiction

The Snap:

The Tale:

“I don’t want to go to the dentist” Her chubby voice gurgled.
“Please papa….. Please….”
“hmhm hmhm”

The kid pulled his hand gingerly.

“I really don’t want to…..”
“hmhm.... Okay.” he sighed.

The kid calmed down for a moment, a bare moment before then her voice crackled as she sobbed.

“I am sorry, papa but my tooth .......... still pains” 

Author's Note:

The idea behind the 55 fiction is to emphasize the unsaid reality that is left out of the story-
 the kid who did not take care of her teeth despite the warnings of the parent, The helplessness that chokes her father when she is suffering from pain, the innocence of the kid when she is apologizing for something as simple as taking care of your teeth.
