It’s All Between HERE & THERE….JNW’s One Word Photo Challenge: Distance

North Bay hills….
Areal view of Mumbai
Sunset at a distance, Andaman
Ships and trawlers in the distant horizon, Goa
Distant hills, Kaziranga, Assam
Distant sunset, North Bay, Andaman
Distance
Para sailing….
Mumbai before touchdown on Indigo flt
Water sports in distant horizon, Goa
Helicopter show
Look closely and you can see the North Bay lighthouse on the left of sunset; Andaman
A lone Tusker in Kaziranga, Assam

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Windows

My ventilator window
Close up of window of sheroo’s room
My father’s clinic…
Side window of our bedroom
Another bathroom window
Painted the side windows of my dog’s room… the reflection of colours on the room’s walls when sunlight fell on them was awesome
Windows in my father’s clinic

Glass painted my ventilator windows.
Painted windows in my father’s clinic… looks beautiful when the sun light streams in
Bathroom windows, glass painted
Painted the drab bathroom windows with glass paints
My mundane terrace window that overlooked the stairs

Escape From a Chaotic World

download

By:- rANJEETA nATH gHAI

So many overwhelming thoughts;
Ricocheting off my mind.
Huddled in my duvet,
Dwelling on what to write,
Again, I begin to ponder.
As my mind spins with chaotic speed.
In comparison to mind and thoughts within,
Hearts are wild creatures
Buried deep in cages of our ribs.
The mess it creates is so familiar.

*

Hugs. Kisses. Insults. Tears.
The arguments we start and.
The hurting words we utter.
The heartbreaks we suffer and,
The broken pieces we try desperately to repair,
And the feelings that make us fall apart.
I know, it sounds pathetic.
But love…
Love is just so chaotic;
Strong, confusing and stubborn.

*

Sleep is my new friend,
Quietly laying, disappearing inside my duvet,
Ready to completely shutdown.
The only novel way to get away,
From all these tragic and chaotic emotions.
My mind wends its way through
The narrow streets of memories.
Windy roads of the day spend and,
Some detours and side alleys of plans rescheduled.
But I’m happy…as I now slide down towards heavenly asleep.

A Seemingly Endless Wait

www-paintingsgallery-pro_kharchenko_victoria_waiting_large_226940

By:- rANJEETA nATH gHAI

Pacing till the front door and back
Only to peek out of my door
To check the streets again minutes later.
Looking through the window
And watching the street outside.
I check for every person that passes
Before stalking back into my room.

*

I welcome distractions and doorbells
That sends me running to the door,
Hoping for some information about your bus delayed.
This waiting game has always frustrated me.
I can feel the anticipation,
Weighing heavy on my chest.
Why don’t you call home using the driver’s cell phone…!!

*

I go back to my room and try and distract myself
I write and chat with other people on social media;
Facebook. Whatsapp. WordPress.
But still, can’t find a topic that won’t let the worry show.
For every minute that you’re late
Thousands of thoughts cross my mind
And mind you not all are positive.

*

Even though my fingers itch…
To yank my car keys from the key stand;
Open the garage and pull at my car’s front door,
I find myself pausing by my front door and
Wondering when you might come knocking.
Then just as suddenly… I hear the sound of the door open
And am I relieved that you’re back home….!!!

*

“It was just a regular traffic jam on the bridge mum,”
You say nonchalantly, as you head for your bedroom to wash and change
And I start laying out the lunch,
On the table for another meal together.
