Happy World Poetry Day 2018

What an apt description of writing and poetry in particular! Please enjoy Shikha’s lovely piece.

Purple Pants

Writing is a vulnerable process. Pulling your guard down and decorating all your thoughts on a store window rack  in just 26 alphabets.

So on this poetry day I sincerely wish for all of us to be strong enough to break down that wall, dress up its evaporating contents on a glossy paper and rebuild the structure again. Then repeat.

And in the end be strong enough today and everyday to do it all over again.

Happy Poetry Day everyone!

Best wishes

and much love,

Spring’s Celebration

*Spring is my favorite time of year.  So in honor of the first day of spring… 

The first blush of spring.  When the flowers begin their peek out of the soil seeking the sun.  A time of New Beginnings.   A time of Rebirth and Fresh Starts.

What a joy to behold!

Fun With Spam

**I don’t know how many of you actually look at the Spam that you get in your comments.  I do.  I have found many of the comments to be funny.  I’ve been adding some of them to a draft for a while, until I had a few that I thought you might enjoy.  Below are some Spam comments that I’ve received and my comments on them.  I hope you will think they are a funny as I have.

Moon Child

My Moon Child.

With alabaster skin and a

Stardust twinkle in your eyes.

You walk among the blooms

Kissing each with dew as

The morn approaches.

You sleep away the sun


To kiss the flowers

Once again

Under the stars.

Mind Matters

If you look at the graphic above, you can see that a lot of things encompass Mental Health.  I’ve written about Mental Health before, particularly Depression, since I have had personal experience in this.

I usually watch CBS Sunday Morning on Sundays.  I woke up later than usual and missed a great deal of it, but happened to catch a piece that actress Glen Close was doing about Mental Health.  She has had personal experience with it as well because it runs in her family.  This is a link that will give you the highlights on the entire show’s broadcast.  There are some wonderful links included in the article that you should check out and a video of Glen Close’s interview.

On Poetry and Publishing

When was the last time you BOUGHT a book of poetry?

When was the last time you READ a book of poetry?

I’ve been tossing around the idea of publishing a book of poetry.  I would want to go the traditional route of publishing.  I LOVE poetry.  I enjoy reading poetry.  But WordPress these days, is pretty much the extent of the poetry I read.

So I started poking around the internet and came across some pretty popular books from Barnes & Noble to Amazon & Kindle.  So there is a lot of popular poetry books coming off the presses.  Good to know!

RIP, Stephen Hawking 1942 – 2018

RIP Stephen Hawking. Please enjoy Lucky Otters Haven’s tribute.

Lucky Otters Haven

Like many others, I was deeply saddened by the loss of Stephen Hawking at the age of 76.

This is a man who was given two years to live in 1963, when he was first diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s disease.   He proved his doctors wrong.

Hawking was living proof that no matter what obstacles or challenges you have, you can still reach for the stars.   He did in a big way.    Stephen Hawking’s body may have been a terrible burden to him, but he was blessed with a beautiful mind that allowed him to open doors to the universe and let the rest of us through.

I just saw this picture and had to share it because I was so moved.  I have no idea who the artist is, sorry.
