A mortal's weapon

Bullets eternal

PENCIL-A mortal's weapon....completely agree with you.

That is an awesome poem- short and to the point (pun intended) and so VERY and sometimes heartbreakingly so- true.

Hi Sumit,

How you doing? coming to your space after a long gap.

Nice Haiku , really liked it.
Yup it has the power if used wisely ..and can be destructive if used otherwise.

Take care.
Have a super Sunday.

Like this a lot... A play on 'the pen is mightier than the sword'... well done.

Deepika said...

Rightly put. Actions or weapons can never have impact that words can get. If someone realises, the scars of pencil wounds live longer than anyother weapon.
Nice one.
BTW you aren't updating since a long time... Hope to see you back soon. :)
