Friends At Gunpoint!

via Daily Prompt: Uniform

Running around in the paddy fields they spent their evenings practicing for the Army recruitments. Together they dreamt of becoming Soldiers to protect and fight for their beloved motherland, shoulder to shoulder.

But little did they know that their country would be partitioned one day and that fate would bring them face to face in the most unaccepted manner…

In a Uniform facing each other at a gunpoint!

Beautiful Skies

via Daily Prompt: Trace

She stood at the window staring out at the vast expanse of the sky, her eyes reflecting the crystal blue canopy. There was not a Trace of the last night’s storm. The clear skies and calmness that followed after the thunderstorms always amazed her.

She found strength in that. If the skies could scream, bleed and cry the whole night and still be this calm and beautiful the next morning then so could she!

A Beautiful Mess

via Daily Prompt: Exposed

“And I have Exposed myself to art so that my work has something beyond just the usual potter” – Beatrice Wood

We too should expose ourselves to arts and try to engage our minds in creative pursuits. After all what’s the use of being just another drop in the countless streams?

Dare to be different, dare to fall off the map. Acquire a few skills, read a few good books, learn something new!

Maybe then, you will have truly lived your life. Your life may still be a mess…but it will at least be a Beautiful Mess!
