Assorted Drabble

The Astrologer
He became very troublesome and used to bombard my email requesting a paid reading. In the letter he sent: my name: gender: date of birth and place were highlighted. So I wrote back to him: why can’t you use your telepathic powers and guess all of it. The bum is so irritable and persistent. He is a fucked up swami!

The Con Man
I have received this strange mail saying that we are from such and such a university in the Gulf and we have seen your profile in a job site and want to employ you. Please contact us; the university name and Gmail is given. At first I thought that they were genuine but when they asked to pay for the visa and travel I realized to my disillusionment that they are fakes.

Ode to Psyche

Dancing
Gently
In the wind…..
Carrying poems
On your wings …..
Metaphors perch
In the solitude
Of autumn …..
Time becomes
Metaphor….
A gaze,
A haze
Of beauty ….
A trope
To adore
