Finally.

It’s time again that the fingers dance
as something from within emerges out
It’s time that these little babies
known as words
have finally come out
How much did they get on my nerves
like a kid, oh, so adamant
How much did I feel a void
with a dull blank page
staring at me
yearning for some company
and its imprisonment!

It’s not words maybe that I crave
but this feeling of release that they bring
It’s not the ink to which I cling
but the stream that words flow in.
It’s the rapture,
the intense emotions that they capture.
It’s when mind feels rested while doing its work
It’s when a nudge is all I need and have
It’s when all I remember is a gush.
When similes and metaphors flash in mind
and the movie of life is set to rewind
it is then when I welcome my friends back
and keep them forever on this page,
knowing how they love being in this cage!
Free, and alive like fresh love in air.
Filled with pure bliss and nothing else to spare!

Until I write…again!

Hello words! Where have you been? I thought you were hiding in my silence. But when I peeped through the covers, I found silence is sleeping too, alone. I have been searching for you, dear words. What do I do to get you back again? Get a new dose of wisdom, maybe? Read something that stirs my soul? Where do I get these things? Oh dear words, you are so, so missed. Please come back in my life.

Change is good – just a ramble!

I don’t like monotony, not even in emotions. As much as I like to be filled with happiness and feel it in every cell of mine, I also like the intense anger that flows through me and brings out the power in me. I also like to cry my heart out when I feel sad. I like the feeling of anticipation, when I have to eagerly wait for knowing about something that means a lot to me. So yes, a constant state of emotions doesn’t appeal to me. I like ocean because of the waves. I like playing with colors to bring the new ones. I like boredom too as when it reaches extremity, it gives birth to creativity and to change!

blessed are the hearts that love!

Isn’t love beautiful? You feel happiness overflowing to find them in joy. You cry when they cry. You love them so much that you would rather choose to suffer yourself than see them in pain. Their smile makes your day. Their worries bring frowns on your forehead. You would care for them each time they cross road with you as if they’re still a small kid. You’d feel so content to find them comfortable when they’re travelling. You’d fight the world to protect them. And your biggest fear would be to be without them.
What a blessing it is to love!

P S I missed you all. 🙂
Now is the time to write again.
See you around!

It’s raining words today!

It’s time again that I have started to miss writing enough to start doing it again! I really missed typing down something like this. Writing is like, I don’t know an old friend who I  haven’t been in touch with since a long time now? There is an initial resistance which is followed by the same reassurance that it’s the same old friend. (S)he was right there for me all this time. Why doesn’t everyone write? I don’t know that. But for me, my words are my friends. They keep bubbling out from me. When I restrain them, they wait for their chance to come out. These words are like a sudden rainfall that happens out of the blue and it makes me feel so good to meet them again. Words can give joy, bring wisdom or hurt. They are powerful. Just like the people in my life. To be filled with words is like I just can’t hold it anymore and I will have to find something. A pen, a notepad, just anything to pour all this out from my heart. Words are mine. They originate from me. They are an identity of me just like my face? New words emerge but the old ones are protected and still keep traces of me with them. Sometimes words are also a form of communication with something that is both me and at the same time beyond me. They are a bridge from my mind to my soul? Words are also my gift to the people I love. They help me in expressing my affection to them in such an easy way. Words are also my friend in that they help me clear my mind. Also I feel good that they help others’ minds too. With words, I make new friends too. New people start knowing me through my words. They develop a friendship with them and unknowingly form a small bond with me too. Words are like spa, they rejuvenate and refresh. Sometimes the readers, and sometimes me. Words are a little session of meditation. Words are a small time spent with me. Words are also an appeasement to some readers who can relate to what is hidden in them. Words bring out new teams where people share the same thought process. And sometimes words are a sting that strikes something and makes someone a little uncomfortable for sometimes it speaks the bitter truth that someone doesn’t like to hear or expects to not be heard.

Planning to write my first book!

Hello,

I decided that I will write a book and this post is about the reasons why I’m writing it. It’s a bit vague to first talk about the purpose of writing, before even starting to write it. But, I will do it this way. I will write whenever I will have the urge to do so. 🙂 Here’s what I wrote in the same way, a few days ago:

Why the book?

  1. It will be a reminder. We often forget what we know already. This book will be a repository of the lessons learnt which should be remembered.
  2. It will allow me to connect, and encourage connection between people. We live in such a small world today, shrunken by technology and convenience. But, even in this connected world, are we really connected? Are we all not just like the tips of icebergs to each other? With this book, I wish to talk to all of you, with an open heart. I want people to really know each other. Communication can multiply our lessons, make our lives easier and can make us feel that there is more love and goodness around us than we think.
  3. Because, I want you to meet your new friend – you. Our life is entangled in the web of several unneccessary conditions and restrictions that we put on ourselves. Through this book, I wish to bring you closer to you.
  4. It will remind that we are powerful. Most importantly, my purpose in writing this is to spread the message, that we are all so highly powerful and how we can choose what we want, and stop being victims of circumstances and people.
  5. Because, it’s my dream to write. I have always wanted people to know me as a writer. With this book, I would live my dream.
  6. Because I finally got rid of these:
  • Someday, I will write. (Some day never comes)
  • My writing skills are not great (I am alright, and my skills will improve with time. I’ll publish it only when  I am sure it’s worth reading.)
  • Writing a book? Are you out of your mind? Who do you think is gonna read it? (You are going to read it. 😉 My friends are going to read it. Few people are definitely going to read it.)

And now, something about this post.

I’ll be sharing my journey of writing with you all. I am no popular person, but I have found my words help people. I have a strong urge to see this world happier. If my lessons/insights can help someone smile, my purpose of writing will be served. Lastly, I strongly believe that we all already know what we need to know. I am yet another simple person. The only special thing is, perhaps, I know that I know. 🙂

Please follow the posts, and stay tuned!

I promise to give my best, and  need your support.

A big thanks for reading. 🙂

Thank You WordPress!

It’s recent that I have started being active as a blogger on WordPress. And, I must say, I am so loving this journey! It’s great to have so many interesting people out there who are blogging. I enjoy the huge variety in the topics that I come across, while reading the freshly pressed blogs.

On WordPress, I meet people who have different goals and different lives, but they all have something in common. They all believe in the power of words. They believe they can bring a change.

With each blog comes a wish of the writer, which can be as small as a release (in the form of words) that the writer feels, to as big as a revolution. The writer might wish to sprout a seed of hope in the hearts of tired people, or (s)he may wish to ignite people’s interests in the fields of her/his interest or expertise. Each post comes with a hope that its words will affect someone in a positive way (here,someone may even be the blogger himself)

WordPress is a platform that can magnificently multiply the power of an individual. If it’s a post about someone who is undergoing a physical/emotional recovery and blogging his experience, WordPress makes it known to a lot of people, and the result –  a lot of blessings from them for the recoverer!

If the post is about a marvellous and admirable person, it spreads the information about this person in no time.

Every time I see the Stats on wordpress,  it  makes me happy when I find the readers all belonging to different parts of the world. It unites people and gives them a universal stand.

Just getting to know people who are eager about improving their lives is an inspiration.

Similarly, it’s really relieving sometimes to know, that our views about life aren’t ours alone. They are shared by other like-minded people.

Also, it’s such a pleasant thing to come across good poetry, it perches the mind for the time it’s being read.

And, the daily posts, and daily prompts from WordPress. What could be a better way to engage our brain cells and get them to work! It’s fun and I look forward to participate more in the same.

And yes, what a nice way blogging is to improve one’s language, and writing skills!

This was just to say thank you to all the bloggers and to WordPress!

Wishing everyone all the best in their pursuits. 🙂

One Love,

Avani
