AMONG MERMAIDS OF THE DEEP


That’s the way it is with trouble

Sometimes It just comes knocking

Collateral damage

Sometimes it diligently courts

Then it’s true

Some trouble is more troublesome than some

I had never dreamt of a lifetime as a swimmer

And definitely not in the dominion of mermaids

Mermaids of the deep

And wheels

It all began with one wrong decision

That early morning

On the fateful day unforgettable

Of the famous

Now infamous operation

AUSPICIOUS


Continued from last week’s ONE MOMENT IN TIME

“Right where they are now…wait a minute!” Came a gentle whisper as he lowered his hand, eyes fixed on the couple. He was peculiarly zeroing in on the lady’s arms. His counterpart had a fair understanding of the shades of moments and their accompanying significance. This one was not impotent.

The Patriot’s eyes were suddenly overflowing with life as the peasant duet came closer. He stood petrified, in a fixed gaze, as his counterpart looked on, mouth wide open, hands stuck to her chest. He reached out for the bundle of joy handed over to him in what depicted a flawlessly rehearsed script. Continue reading “AUSPICIOUS”

ONE MOMENT IN TIME!


Another day! A morning. At sunrise! One may as well have called it dawn…Yes! Especially that one… Dawn! Sometimes it’s all one and the same word, others one and the same thing. The distinctions on the shades there-in do not always stand out. Because the sting of the mundane renders one too many numbed til it doesn’t really matter.For one already saw it yesterday, there it is today, as expected, with tomorrow a sure bet in occurrence and fashion alike.

THE LION CUB


It is the captivating story of a grand mystery air craft on a global rendezvous whose coordinates a master pilot set in place and went to sleep before all things. As it maneuvered the intrigues, turbulence, and finer details of the eventful flight, he soundly lay asleep…for he securely held all cords together. He was surprisingly at hand exactly on the touchdown schedule to receive his guests and declare the “Mission Accomplished.” Continue reading “THE LION CUB”

THE SPECTACLE OF THE NATIONS!


We quickly gathered around a visibly distraught Joe as he narrated his sensational ordeal.

“What an embarrassment. What wastage squander! My moment. The  glory that never was. I have no idea what happened right there. Everything backfired at the very last moment. All my senses crumbled at the countdown. I just couldn’t keep my head when it counted most. It seemed all I could think of was the idea of elephants drinking water!” Someone within the room struggled with much difficulty to hold his laughter. Continue reading “THE SPECTACLE OF THE NATIONS!”

A MATTER OF LIFE AND DEATH


Growing up wasn’t always easy, especially walking at night! Such dreaded moments were synonymous with unique first hand encounters with the world’s extinct and mystical species such as the dinosaur, angels and demons. Strangely, I was never armed with a camera any of those nights so I was unable to prove my point to any one! A flashlight presented a magical touch in a moment like that; tranquility, order and clarity instantaneously restored. Continue reading “A MATTER OF LIFE AND DEATH”

SOMEWHERE OUT THERE!


I know he is before all things and in him all things hold together. When all is said and done, there is such a place as prominence in lowliness. Better still, dawn after absolute dusk. There are times you know it best when you’ve lived it. This was one of those. Let’s just say I was a slave…with a touch of greatness I guess! Continue reading “SOMEWHERE OUT THERE!”

Ground Zero


Never in the history of the Nation had such large-scale panic been experienced. From the palace to the populace reality about the immensity of the threat facing them was dawning on all. The ominous poison from the sting of Sennacherib spread like a plague. Great fear had seized the land. In a defiant show of might, he had paraded his chief officer, the supreme commander and his field counterpart all seasoned warriors to deliver the spine chilling message to Hezekiah and the Nation that demanded nothing short of  unconditional surrender.
