The Magicians Story

Three Line Tales (TLT) is a challenge put forth by Only 100 Words. The Challenge is to write a three line tale for the supplied image.

Here is my take for the Week Number Twenty Six:


No one believed when he said he was the greatest magician ever.

Then later, there was no one left to believe that he was the greatest magician ever.

His magic had disappeared everyone leaving behind only the tents!


Poetic Desk - LR

Words combine together,
They clutter and gather,
They add the tune,
They add the melody.

Thoughts take words,
Words go phrases,
Phrases extend lines,
Poems thus shine.

Poems from imaginations,
Poems from reality,
Poems from fiction,
Poems from fantasy!

Through the messy desk,
Comes the clean gist,
They add the feel of good,
The deserving must and should.

Inner Soul

Indian Bloggers


In the paths we voyage,
I just gather,
You assume we are together!

I am just like you, in you,
I walk with you,
Being you.

I am identified,
I am ignored,
I am unnamed and unstated.

I am not owned by any,
I am still here,
Surprisingly, I am still along.

I am not yours,
I won’t stick for long,
I will leave you once, unsaid.

I opt my way,
Inner soul.

I would like to Thank Dileep Naduvinamani for the inspiration to pen down this poem.

Time and Grow – Haiku

This post is written for Ronovan Writes Weekly Haiku Challenge Number 105.  The words given for this week to write a haiku are time and grow.


unwanted hairs grow,
get introduced to scissors,
recurring times tale.

Syllables Per Line: 5 7 5

You see how we trim or cut out the unwanted hairs? That’s what we need to do with unwanted problems too!


Success, What’s That?


How is the magnitude measured? Is there a direction?  Does it have a single look-for definition? Is otherwise everything a failure? Is it related to individual? Does this accomplishment bring its own consequences? Let them remain the questions. Some questions are good if they remain unanswered.

‘He was successful in conveying the message’
‘The scheme was successful’
‘The event was a success’
‘She succeed in the business’
‘It was a successful marriage’
‘The satellite launch was a success’
‘His life was a success’

Do you see the degree in each of the cases above?

Take the scenario below, there could be a different individual at each level:

‘He auditioned for the movie’
‘He got a lead role in the movie’
‘Movie saw a successful 100 days’
‘The actor was nominated for the Award’
‘He won the award’

There is success at each level. One looks for and finds happiness no matter where it stops. All that one needs to do is to agree and accept that there is no explanation for success and it’s ultimately the happiness and content. Well, that comes with maturity. Peace.

The Lonely Wave



Like a lonely wave of the sea,
That hated to touch the sea shore,
He preferred to stay alone,
He was for himself.

Like the dirt in the sea,
That disturbed the serenity,
Life had cruel lessons,
He was for himself.

Like the hardness of the water,
That never failed in presence,
There were people to mock,
He was for himself.

Like every wave had to end,
That had to touch the shore,
Everything washed away,
He was at peace.
