A promise is what i want!!!



Is it a promise?…

A bright morning…the birds chirp…the sky a beautiful hue…a promise of a beautiful day

Hands intertwined…hearts given…vows exchanged…a promise of a bond of a lifetime


A hot summer’s afternoon…the sun hidden...the dark clouds dance …a promise of falling silver

A pregnant lady…hand on her belly…a curve on her lips….a promise of life and nurture


A handshake, firm and welcoming …a smile so bright… a promise of friendship and loyalty

A country of billions... a leader talks....a promise of hope and change

Aged and wizened, duties done, welcoming the deathly visitor...family around…an unsaid promise of care and devotion…


A word given to a child…a task to be done…an unbroken promise of trust and belief



A promise made...a word broken...the sound of shattering glass...never to mend

ah very nice take on the topic..


A word to a child…a task to be done…an unbroken promise of trust and belief

Very nice thought this one..


Was thinking of adding this to your list :)

Unspoken words, a dreamy silence, just some hints. A promise for a golden friendship and perfect understanding.

**A word given to a child…a task to be done…an unbroken promise of trust and belief


I think this can be a really difficult one to make, cos if you've made this one...be sure to keep it up or break hearts ...

paisley said...

very thoughtfully put together... i wonder how many promises will fall into the broken glass category by the end of time....

Joy said...

Brilliant. esp the last one.

Lucy said...

The broken-glass syndrome. A lovely and hopeful piece. I enjoyed The Kite Runner, too, but I felt the urge to cry for days after reading it...I've seen the author interviewed several times and he is an amazing person!

My turn, my turn :) Applause and more applause. Very beautifully done..so many emotions centered on promises kept and like glass can easily broken if not handled with care. But they do leave a long lasting mark either way. Striving to keep those promises is life really, is it not? Loved the thoughts that came to mind after the read, thank you.

Keshi said...

Raghu said...

promises... as days pass by, I realize that they are difficult to keep than to make!

keeping up your promises, however difficult they are is probably what makes life worth living!

Its a lovely post and I lived a few emotions as I read through.

Thinking aloud said...
