When I Posted my First Lines...


When I posted my first lines
Very unripe, just a few words,
Gleanings of thoughts some fresh
Some buried in yellowing pages
My fingers lingered, delayed
‘Who would read my words? ’
‘Oh, they aren't worth anyone’s attention’
But I kept on…inscribing, penning, posting
And asudden a note appeared, a footnote
That inspirited me, lit a candle in my seclusion
Kind words falling like gold dust, my pen
Was animated, thrilled
Those words still blink in my mind,
Resonating lilting sounds,
Kindle my thoughts and keep me going on
Now a cataract of favour, of comforting words
Falls in my space on PH and I bask in easement
That flows deep down into my soul

    It is lovely if someone can relate to our words, however I say we write because it is good to air our what is in our brain and I got to the point too, that I know only those people will read it, who has to learn something from these words. Remember like people attracts each other, to walk in life's road together and help each other.
    Your writing is just lovely, shows who you are, a very sensitive, lovely person. (Report) Reply

    The first step into the unknown can be intimidating and it may falter too! But if we keep moving, we gradually gain confidence and the first shouts of 'hurrah' will help us gain momentum and under new inspiration, we won't even hesitate to take a headlong plunge! A great write Jasmeen.....which has come from the heart! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
