Autumn-Takes away a piece of me

Megha's World

I stand here

barren,

naked,

those leaves on me

keeping up the 

decked up pretenses

trying to satiate my 

inconsolable heart

not to lose hope

and lose that spark

my languid arms 

is the stark reality

of the emotions 

being stripped off me

one by one as

they fall 

scuttling towards their

seasonal death

a sign of my weary heart

the coltish life

emerging from the stupor

just to witness the last leaf

falling to the ground.

Christine Ray – Composition of a Woman Like no Other

Read this farewell post to my writer friend Christine Ray from Sudden Denouement
When you get such a glowing and warm farewell, you know what kind of person you have been.

A Global Divergent Literary Collective

“The world needs strong women who will lift and build others, who will love and be loved. Women who live bravely, both tender and fierce. Women of indomitable will.” – Amy Tenney

I don’t know who Amy Tenney is, have never heard of her, nor read anything other than the above quote, (that I know of), that can be traced back to her, but after reading that very quote, I think Amy Tenney may know Christine Ray.

If the heart of the Sudden Denouement Literary Collective is the impressive collection of writers and their work, editors and their passion, readers and their appreciation, then surely Christine Ray has been a potent infusion of life for us all.

For the past two years, Christine Ray has been a valued, and much loved, member of the Sudden Denouement Literary Collective. As a writer, Christine is nothing short of impressive. As a poet…

Megha's World

eddie-howell-606908-unsplash.jpgThere is nothing new in this world

or the place where I’m in

counting the minutes lost by the clock

with no hands

our body is outlasted by our bones

our only testament in the world

hollow and brittle

they can’t tell the truth

no matter how voyeuristic your life was

they are buried numb and mute in the 

rotting soil

they outlive us,

they are marks of the immortality

but they are numb and mute

the rocks of the tomb are 

battered and degraded,

as the hands bring me into it

rocks are all silent 

in the stone-hearted people,

reeking of the dark pain

carried in the hollowed eyes

of the people around me

everything is stale

and reeks of the stench

of the pain and jealousy 

they carry in their hearts

but I’m fresh as a daisy

my body still warm

as I’m being lowered

in the freshly dug grave.
