THE OWL'S CORNER

Orations

“Why collect all your hopes in one place,

Hoping hope will brighten up your world.

Let the light of hope be speckled in unknown spots.

So it can surprise you with a twinkle here and a sparkle there

Or simply remain out of sight, keeping your hopes alive”

THE OWL'S CORNER

Eclogues

“I still walk on my two feet

Though I dance an altered dance

Then again,

You did leave your color on me,

My fair one”

THE OWL'S CORNER

Monologues and Dialogues

“Not biologically but symbolically speaking,

The labyrinths of the ear seem to lead to the labyrinths of the mind.

Are there labyrinths in the eyes too?

How else do we not see what is shown and not hear what is

told? We just absorb what we want to. And respond how we

already wanted to.”

THE OWL'S CORNER

Stories

“I wake up to a soft mountain sun, tenderly washing my

face with its light. I visualize my eyes turning a shade lighter,

emulsifying with the warm golden hue. Divided between the

desire to see what is outside the window, where the sun seems

perched to watch me, and the comfort of soaking in the sight

from my bed, I choose the latter. I am equally keen to watch

what is to unfold.”

THE OWL'S CORNER

Pathos

“He never got a chance to see his skeletal frame that had

nothing to offer to her. All he saw in the mirror of her eyes was

an exceptional man with a heart laden with fresh blood,

beating just for her”

THE OWL'S CORNER

Satire and Sarcasm

“The older I get, the clearer I can tell that wisdom,

intellect or even civility are not the virtues to go after.

I am building the nerve to accept the unwise me. I now can see

the ones who stay closer when I am at my foolish best.”

THE OWL'S CORNER

Life Aphorisms and Epigrams

“And then she decided, “Not everything I witness can

be served up.”

Review by Abhilash Ruhela, Top 500 Reviewer on Indiblogger, booksareworld, dna-of-books and other platforms:

I am not a great fan of books that are in form of anthologies or short stuffs. But few books are really magical which are written with pure heart and feelings. One of such books is written by Priyanka Sharma Kaintura with the name “My Jiffies”. The book is published by Notion Press and comes with the tagline- Narration of moments, Unadulterated and Unpackaged.
