The Challenge Words!
EBB & Flow
Glued on to the screen,
addicted to ebbs and flows.
Dude it’s stock trading.
Difficult to hear
when strong winds are blowing in.
Let that fall away.
Deep in the forest,
Sunlight ebbed darkness crept in.
Happy to share that I learnt a new word while concocting this post – Psithurism. It’s pronounced as see-tha-ree-ism, which means the sound of rustling leaves or wind in the trees. Source: Wiki (not available with Thesaurus.com), For pronunciation: YouTube.
Sea waves ebb and flow likewise.
Our lives otherwise?
This is a kinda eulogy to one of the finest actors Indian Bengali cinema had produced, named Soumitra Chatterjee. He passed away yesterday in Kolkata at age of 85 following Covid complications. Lots of childhood memories for me, with he playing a lead detective agent (like Sherlock Holmes) in a book series, followed by films, for an Oscar winning director, another gem named Satyajit Roy. Read in the news
That shooting star ebbed,
Shed plenitude of glitter.
Deluge of flashbacks.
And finally, one with the prompt words in the title, breaking the rules. 🙂
Ebb and Flow
Garboiled with these words,
As they almost mean the same.
A lame excuse though.
