  1. The Moonlit Gate

    Once every one thousand years, the moon circles closer than any other time, because it is so close, that it has a mysterious pearly white. I have heard many tales of this moon, being the cause of strange happenings. None of them I believed true. Until the day I found a gate of an old castle opened, with moon shining as brightly as the sun. A saddled horse waited, with a letter titled, “Wanderer of the Stoneless Fortress, Greetings.” With that, the gate closed, with myself trapped inside.

  2. My writing prompt will be ” a new dawn.”

    In the depth of the night , a raspy stale breath accosts you, and a moan ” Hai, maa, mainu bachale’Hai maa meriye, mainu marta”( oh mother , save me, oh mother , they have all but killed me.”) and you cringe in your heart, and draw the covers over your ear, and pray that this is not a plea for changing a wet adult diaper.(which it invariably is )
    And you pray for forgiveness, and for ending all suffering in the world .
    Oh Lord!! May your light shine through and may there be a new dawn.
