In a moment, dies
Dreams,crushed by grasp of old lies
Fallen angel cries


Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.

  1. Beautiful Lines!!Overwhelming effect!!Tears will not blot away the crushing lies but there is always a sunny spot. Somewhere in the world, there will be the best, for dreams to come alive!!

  2. An angel on earth does cry everytime she falls! But thing is, an invisible angel helps her get up and start a new life…beautiful lines as always Leo…angelic thoughts you have…:-)I have written a Take two on the prompt Angel…:-) Do check!!!

  3. @Rumya,tears will blot and the sun shall shine on her yet again, but for a few moments atleast, the darkness shall reign in her life. the dreams will come alive once she realizes she has to search the light again! :)glad u liked it.

  4. @Amity,yes, that is true. there are invisible angels to help her get up, but they come after a few moments, not as soon as she's down.thanks and glad u liked it. have read ur 2nd take already.

  5. I have learned that if our dreams are crushed, we need to make new dreams. We never know where our path takes us, but to dream is to live. I want my angel to fly.

  6. Dear Vinu, Good Evening!No,Angels will not cry.They smile and spread smiles.We do have angels to safeguard us.They reach us at teh right time.Angels on earth don't have wings.Unless the dreams are crushed,we will not strive harder to attain new goals. Wishing you a lovely evening, Sasneham, Anu

  7. I LOVE that- the image, the haiku, the comments others have said. I actually see hope that she will take her moment absorb the sadness and get back up to do what she does best. Excellent take on the prompts.

  8. @Rob,yes.. thats true. new dreams are needed. but for a moment, the dream seems far away… for a moment, that angel seems down. the angel shall fly again surely, but just one moment it does feel out of breath..!

  9. @Anu,hmm… i didn't mean the angel literally.. the angel in mind while writing this post was a little one, who has been abused. that angel feels so torn down, that she does't know how to fly again soon. sure, unless dreams are crushed, the striving hard to to regain them won't happen.. but how they are crushed will have a bearing on the mind too acc. to me.

  10. @Patti,thank u. glad u loved the image & the haiku. yes, there is hope to absorb the sadness, but for a moment the sadness will stay on the surface, refusing to sink in. once the moment lapses, the rising can start. 🙂

  11. @Ramesh,yes, angels do cry, for in that moment, they forget they are angels and the pain blankets them… once the moment passes, they smile again! 🙂

  12. Well, I wrote about crying angel too…Angel will cry but she won't stop flyinng, because she is angel! Hope everyone have a angel in our life, to guide us floy through all the darkness in life.

  13. Picture and words in perfect harmony. A lovely piece. I came to your site from 2 links on my site Carry On Tuesday, but I can't find your contribution to this weeks prompt!
