Clandestive Vs Phantasmagoria

Clandestine affair
Phantasmagoria trailed
Plans drawn thoughtfully
***
And Clandestine done
Phantasmagoria trailed

Memories cherished

    1. Thanks sir...
      I tried to mean this:

      "It was a clandestine affair. They planned something. As they planned, they were able to envision how it would be (Phantasmagoria). Later, the plan was executed. What remained was the memories which trailed in their minds (Phantasmagoria again)"

      I hope that I was able to convey this thought...

    and the first lines near the same, but evoked quite different feelings....

    1. @ a good atheist : Clandestine affairs are always scandalous.

  4. Hmm, rhyming, but trifle difficult to get to the root of what you intend to convey

    1. I wanted to convey this:

      I hope I did justice.

      Thanks Anil :)

  5. Hello greetings.

    I had to refer to the dictionary to understand the meaning of Phantasmagoria . A jaw breaker indeed.

    Clandestine affairs always end in Phantasmagoria and cherished long after the Clandestine affair is done.

    Best wishes

  7. Planning our lives and activities does produce great results (although impromptu can be fun!).
