The winner’s streak


Photo By William Stitt

Have you ever?

Tried to spin a tale of the people you meet, ever so clever?

Wondering where they hail from?

Wondering whether they’d be quarrelsome,

Wondering what they do for a living?

Wondering whether they are masters at their field, or just to their jobs they are clinging.

You’d wonder,

And you slowly begin to ponder,

Thousands of people you meet,

Lakhs* of stories for your treat!

A person ever so different from the rest,

Drawing glances from the best,

Making you feel, it’s a sin to be unique,

But I’d say it’s a winner streak.

100 words

       Lakhs* :- A hundred thousand

  1. I love your poetry of wondering what the people in images are doing, thinking, and feeling — it’s the process I go through when working off a prompt and find yours ever so hopeful! Thank you for joining us again this week with such a lovely poem and tale ❤
