a tiny whit of time

A tiny whit of time
caught in a time warp
without wings nosedived into deep waters
withdrawn into mother earth’s amniotic sac

a feckless mama’s boy
a dour misanthrope
destiny’s child
bedevilled by occurrences
suffered a fate!

but there, in the mother’s womb
there is enough water for the feeble fragments
to be swaddled in fairy mother’s embrace

every night the moonlight simmers gently
variegating it into prismatic multihued lights;

by and by the scrap of time emerges
from the time warp
to stretch its legs,
tiptoes out of the water
and sails close to the wind
that tiny whit of time

Eugi’s weekly word prompt ‘Fairy’

Published by Smita Ray

Smita Ray is the mother of two lovely kids and hails from northeastern India. Her perpetual displeasure arising from the hypocrisy in the society underneath the semblance of religion, culture as well as the conditioning for compliance urged her to put down the impressions in her mind. In her spare time, she likes to have some culinary adventures along with her kids trying new recipes or crafting. She describes herself as -- a soulmate, a life alighted on the earth catching the rhythm passing by her. A tinge of joy colours her world and lays its feet on the land where revellers are awaiting her to get into the groove.
