Well Jingle decided to honor my flimsy attempts at poetry and gave me an award. Now I’m a poet, and not a bad one at that. Thanks fellow friends, bloggers, poets and Jingle.
You guys made my day…everyday
I would like to nominate Kavita for week 27. She is one of the best poets I have ever known.
A day Lost. A Night gained
Morning starts with sun raising
I start with anger raising
Heart has won
Reason is none
Mind is gone
Today is lost
This is my thought
Make the worst of the day
All went well
Pain to dwell
In me & In her
I haven’t said it yet
She punished herself
Now I punish her
Knowing I punish myself
This was supposed to be the worst day
On her best day
Then came an angel
To show me
Enough of Me
Now I become Myself
Enough of the insanity
To walk towards joy
As confusing as I sound now
I was then
But with a Kiss
and three words I made her Day
Happy Birthday Mom!
Forgive me for not being myself.
The first poem
I wrote my first poem about a crush I had in college. That surprised and shocked me at the same time. c’mon me poetry! But it was something. Subsequently, I lost the motivation. I couldn’t imagine myself as a poet.
Easy to rhyme than to write
After reviving my blog, I came up with the 30 minutes a day plan. But it was difficult to just cut large posts into 30 minute writing slots and some work days ended really late.
On one such night, reluctant to give up, I decided to write a poem in 30 minutes – To Rhyme Or Not to Rhyme
Surprisingly it came out better than I thought, I tried several times after that and response from you guys was great. But more importantly I found it easier to write a poem
and then Jingle found me and the rest is history…
I was also honored by a few more awards from writers/bloggers that I admire. (Sorry for the delay guys, I’m not good at this awards thing. Lisa, sorry i missed yours)
Here they are in no particular order
Thank You Ollin! I hope to start a similar project some day – All the best for your novel.
Thank You Hoiden. You are a wonderful poet!!
Thank You Jingle for this. You are plain awesome 🙂
This one is from Amanda. A dear friend and one of the first poets to believe in me (thanks for subscribing my posts). Check out her poems and fun food recipes.
Now I’m not good at following rules. So I leave this here with an implicit message – You are all wonderful. Every comment in this blog is a treasure I cherish. THANK YOU!
