#AtoZChallenge 2017 – F for Fortitude

Anjali sat on the front row of the wedding hall. She looked beautiful in a peach colored lehenga, and simple jewelery to accessorize.

“Do you, Rachel, take Pavan to be your lawfully wedded husband, from this moment on till death parts you?” she heard the minister ask.

“I do.”

As the bride and groom walked down the aisle, Rachel smiled at Anjali, her best friend. She had fallen in love with that smile the very first time they had met.

“If only you knew I had imagined my future with you too,” Anjali thought, masking her sadness with a smile.

My theme for this April is something I call ON SHORT NOTICE. The topic for the letter F is Fortitude as suggested by Sreedeep, in the previous post. As I’m publishing this post very late, I will be writing on a random word from the dictionary for the letter G. The suggestions part of the theme will continue on the post for G though. Thank you!

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.
