Struck

Photo0404

it struck sideways with a scraping sound,

and moved ahead to sit in alignment,

with the victim, not being itself a culprit,

so to emanate from beyond 2 m visibility-

shouts, complaints, some swears-

but after not very long, wheels whirled

and it continued, swaying us in its gut,

shuttering my eyes for a nauseous stupor

.

I am linking it up with Friday Flash 55.

Looking for an emerald…

Travelling between

the thin line of

reality and fantasy,

looking for an emerald

that resides in me,

.

I stumble through distant paths

get burnt by dragon’s tongues,

 I climb the mountains

to see no sun

but be struck by lightning

in search of something

that is nowhere

but inside me,

 .

I dwell in darkness

feast on my own dead skin,

split open my eyes,

looking for that island

where I think the stone is;

 .

fantasy becomes reality

when I last return home,

and find some drops

falling down my open eyes,

they glint with a distinct sheen,

and I realize,

they are the dear stones,

I was looking for,

in the realm of fantasy,

 .

all the time,

them being overlooked

by my heart,

but present

in my own reality.
