Light & Dark

A Florette  for OctPoWriMo- Day 31

31 days, 31 poems and all I can say is I’m truly grateful that with this Florette, l have completed the challenge of OctPoWriMo -2020. This is the first time I have taken up to writing poetry continuously for a month. More than just writing verses, I learnt of various forms; of course, for an amateur like me, it was always challenging to keep up to the syllable count and maintaining the meters and rhythm. But then, as always, despite the million flaws in my writing, my dear fellow bloggers were always there encouraging me every time I tried a new poetry form, inspiring me💛. Thank you all, for the love and support throughout.😊

What if we lived without darkness
Just enlightened in our brightness
Would we have valued its true worth?
As we do in this good, dark Earth…
Now I know why we need both, to restore balance.

Hand in hand, the duo set off
And we decide who leads; it’s tough
They say light and dark co-exist
Seems right as I live in its midst,
Embracing its value, though the journey gets rough.


Thank you for reading 😊😊

I Am…

A Free Verse written for OctPoWriMo – Day 30

I am, yours sincerely,
A poetess of inky nights;
Mild in her demeanour,
Weird in her verses
Curious of the lights
That seeps in to inspire
Forever shut minds.

I am, yours truly,
A whisper of your thoughts
That echoes in your silence
A word of your dreams, oddly strong
to make your eyes twinkle with hope
Call me out when fear brings you down
For, I am you, your faithful friend!!!

Thank you for reading😊😊

Meandering Thoughts

A Octain Refrain written for OctPoWriMo – Day 29

As vague thoughts meander along
Quaint contours construing our lives
Whistling past our intricacies
Jolting us to where we belong…
We are vagabonds, here to bond,
Till we halt amid the wild throng
And leave them with some memories;
As vague thoughts meander along…


Thank you for reading😊😊

A Journey Of Choices

(A Lannet written for OctPoWriMo – Day 28)

Journeys set on mysterious pathways
Decided by our choices all the way
To reach a Paradise, the goal of all;
Yet our choices display disparate paths
Encumbered with nearly-right alternates
We flounder but name a mortal who doesn’t.
Though some be made right, timely forgiven,
Not all grave mistakes can be forgiven.
One’s choices that birthed the gravest sorrows
Own it, sincerely and wholeheartedly
Maybe, that’s what can be rightly done; as
You stand blemished in your choicest choices.
Destiny reveals one’s paths, my belief;
Do remember to celebrate each step!!!


Thank you for reading😊😊


(A Free Verse for OctPoWriMo – Day 27)

Ancestors, veiled beyond time,
Yet a part of them alive,
In prayers and remembrances,
by those of us who believe.
Seeking their blessings, accepting their graces,
I feel magic sparkling between the past and present.
As we cherish the goodness of our heritage,
In the warmth of friends and family…
May we remember with warmth, love and respect
The past that brought us our present to an even better future.
