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

    Holy Qur'an,16: 125, tells us to invite the uncouth with rational and intelligent thoughts.Discussions are possible in a cool atmosphere.54: 17,22,32, and40 tell to read the Qur'an and think on it.12: 111 tells to those who think there is good lesson and it becomes a guide.Let the believer poets use their power to improve the social culture progressively to a peaceful level(Islam) .Insha Allah. May Allah teach his children to teach and get educated both materially and spiritually.May your words be blessed by Him. It is simple and nice. (Report) Reply
