Sketchy Life #tankaprose

Once the fire was burning with anger. The flames rose so high that sparks were soaring in the sky. The Gods were so frightened that they ran to God Varuna and he arranged rain to calm the fire.

From then on, the fire seemed to have something attractive in the water. He found her cool and sweet. So when water falls on him, his anger calms down, but the water realises how hot the fire was and how difficult it was to live with him.

The two still love each other, but from a distance, as the water tries to get closer to the fire, it evaporates.

Your fragrance in me
reminds me of the rainbow
come back o’ my life
fickle mind is not stable
life without you is sketchy

Eugi’s Weekly Prompt – soaring

⭐ I had to give a home visit last week due to the low number of children in our school and so I couldn’t publish or visit your blogs. I apologise.

The education system is suffering as children drop out of school. Knowing their problems, we are now trying to solve them.

Thank you for reading.

Stay Blessed! πŸ’ž

  2. This is such a masterful piece of writing. The imagery is amazing and works perfectly in symbolizing how a relationship can be feel when things are out of balance and painful. But you’re not only a wonderful poet, Jane, you’re also a wonderful human being, and the work you do to help others (especially children) is truly noble and loving. Much respect to you, my friend. πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, dear Mike! My duty starts with the children and ends with the children. Children are our future. Talking or playing with them relieves our stress. Thank you once again ❀️

    1. Many parents have lost their jobs and our young generation is doing their duty but their future will be in danger if they do not complete their studies. They have the right to study. Thank you so much, dear Gwen ❀️
