Under the Umbrella

The Blogging from A to Z April Challenge was first held in 2010. The challenge is that we have to post every day of April, except on the four Sundays. April 1st is a theme with letter A, 2nd with letter B and so on till April 30th which will be Z themed. This year, I’m planning to do short pieces of fiction (not a series), or a poem based on a word with that letter.

Under the Umbrella

The wind blew the umbrella away from Umang and it toppled into her.

One look at her brown eyes and it was love at first sight.

As the rain fell, he held her close under the umbrella and walked home.

“I’ll take good care of you,” he said, as the stray puppy licked his nose.

Like last year, I’m taking the challenge along with my friend Bhavya. We’re writing on the same themes each day, and giving each other the themes on alternate days. Day 21, the word chosen by us was ~Umbrella~.

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.
