Warning To Self

Warning 2

 

Hey everyone!
Sorry for being MIA for so long. I was on vacation and also had a bit of a writer’s block!
To help me get out of the writer’s block and get back into the habit of writing again; I decided to revisit an old poem of mine. Rewriting this poem was indeed invigorating and I now feel more motivated than ever to pen down my thoughts!

May The Fourth

On account of Star Wars Day, here’s a small poem dedicated to my dad! We are all avid literature and cinema aficionados in my family but my father and I share an exceptional love for sci-fi and thriller films especially the Star Wars and Star Trek saga.

This poem recounts the very first time my father narrated the story of Anakin Skywalker to me when I was just 5 years old. After that, we made it a point to watch them all together by renting the DvDs-unforgettable memories! And now, nearly 17 years later, I am gearing up to see the final instalment in the cinema with him.

Without my father; I never would have understood the Star Wars mania or fallen in love with the Skywalker twins, Han Solo and countless others and for that; I am forever grateful to him.

Lastly, May The Fourth Be With You!

NaPoWriMo Day 30

NaPoWriMo Day 30.

The final day has arrived! For today, the prompt was to write a minimalist poem. As someone who is extremely fond of long, winding poems; this prompt was definitely challenging and it took me a long time to find the perfect prompt.

As a person who is quite hard of hearing, this poem reflects on the day I got my advanced hearing aids and wore them for the first time. A truly emotional moment, it made me realise how everyday sounds are often taken for granted and labelled as background noise while for some people like me, it’s music to the ears.
Ps. Thank you for sticking with me until this very end. It was an incredible NaPoWriMo 2019!

Happy Reading!

NaPoWriMo Day 29

NaPoWriMo Day 29! The penultimate day of National Poetry Writing Movement is finally here.
Today’s prompt was to pen a poem that mediates an emotion from a state of tranquility which is actually inspired by William Wordsworth’s definition of poetry. Taking a leaf from ‘Meditation’ by Charles Baudelaire, eminent French poet, this poem too addresses a feeling— gratitude.
Having almost reached the end of NaPoWriMo, I am indeed grateful to all who have supported me and I love you all!

Happy Reading! (And a big thank you!)

NaPoWriMo Day 28

NaPoWriMo Day 28! The prompt for today was to write a meta-poem i.e. a poem about poetry itself. Funnily, I had already written a meta-poem on NaPoWriMo Day 5 (My ‘Villian’elle).

However, I decided to stick with that theme and thus, today’s poem is also a villanelle about poetry. (And it was definitely easier to write this time round!)

Happy Reading!

NaPoWriMo Day 27

NaPoWriMo Day 27! Today’s prompt was to do a remix of any of Shakespeare’s sonnets. The sonnet I have chosen is Sonnet 60 which begins with the lines ‘Like as the waves make towards the pebbled shore’

It deals with the finality of time and is an incredibly complex, thought provoking sonnet. I can only hope I’ve done justice to it!
Happy Reading!

NaPoWriMo Day 26

NaPoWriMo Day 26! (Part Two)

The prompt for 26th April was to pen a poem that uses repetition in some form or the other. Although split into two, I have incorporated this prompt throughout the poem.
Here’s part two of the poem ‘Monsoon: A Definition’

Happy Reading!
