This week the letter is 'E' and I dabble in the Fiction. Open to critiques!

While she stood by the waters, the silence echoed the story of her life.

After five years of companionship that faced the turbulences of life to triumph over the enemy and the soul, he ditched her for death.

The dove-eyed lass with a feeble body took over the reigns of the sea and the cause of the people – his people and now her children.

The longing for him never left her but the love he had bestowed upon her during that short spell proved deeper than the sea.

His body had left her 25 years ago but the soul he left behind for her – his eternal love.

While I flew with the Flu

As good, as it can get things are improving on this side as the family is recuperating from the ugly flu. It is such a dreaded disease. All the joints, bones, and muscles pray for compassion and the nerves are a wreck. You wonder if at all you would have grasped that a little virus could control your life for almost a week.

Pray if only you had listened to the clattery sounds of your bones and the whizzing sirens that shook your chest. If only, but, then it is too late. To add salt to your open wounds the entire family takes a corner each of the house.

Oh God, show some mercy!   Promise I shall listen to the silent rants of my body next time. This is the thought that never leaves you until you leave the bed. Afterwards, Well “I am a shoemaker” Promise, what is that?

The deadly cold is probably the taken most casually but the effects it has on the body are hard hitting!

"I hate you" is all I  say to the Flu!

D is For Doodling

Doodling Back to Health

While I was captive of the Flu this is what I did. Spare me if it looks childish but then this was all I had to keep myself busy - DOODLING!

According to Wikipedia, "A doodle is a drawing made while a person's attention is otherwise occupied. Doodles are simple drawings that can have concrete representational meaning or may just be abstract shapes."

Whereas, according to dictionary.com when used as a verb, (used with or without object), doodled, doodling.to draw or scribble idly, to waste (time) in aimless or foolish activity or else, Dialect. to deceive; cheat.
When used as a noun it means a design, figure, or the like, made by idle scribbling or Archaic. a foolish or silly person.

No matter how foolish an activity it may appear but some studies suggest it good for the brain.
Personally, also, I feel as if it helps do away with the hollow feeling or emptiness that surrounds oneself.


While I was in school the back of the hemline of my uniform used to be adorned wih doodles, so did the pages of the notebook during boring lectures. Now, things are different but the attraction towards scribbling and doodle still has not lost its charm.

The pictures used above are the property of an idle mind that belongs to the author of this post.  ;)

Do you scribble or doodle to shun away the unwelcome gloom or in your day dreaming time?

I am in general a strong person and take things in head on.  However one thing that gets the better of me is cold or flu. Right now I am suffering from severe cold and high fever. It sort of takes away the life from our body.

As if we are at the mercy of this merciless  miscreant. Panic strikes for  the cells of our body lose their zest to fight back this four letter common cold.
I read somewhere that it is the most widespread disease though often not taken as seriously.

Have you ever suffered from a bout of cold that made you feel helpless? 

P. S - As I used my phone for publishing the post I may not be able to comment on your blog posts but will try and be there soon!

Bound by Love

She remembered nothing except for a trip down to her hometown some fifty years back; a trip that changed her life forever as it was here that she fell madly in love with him.

Since their marriage until a month ago every day around midnight, she would play the same piece of music on that piano much to the annoyance of the neighbours.

Ode to Scarcity

Sweat covered her head to toe
Bad omen was in store

Cold hands tried to drown her
Deep waters
She could see no shore

Who is back here?

Well, my coming back to ABC-W after an incomplete round is no big deal. ABC-W round 18 is back and another chance is here to make it through the end. The second letter for ABC-W week two is B and I am playing with word BACK!

Old English bæc, of Germanic origin; related to Middle Dutch and Old Norse bak. The adverb use dates from late Middle English and is a shortening of aback.
