A Time to Celebrate

(I just completed five hundred posts on this blog..)

I started this blog just for a lark

I had no desire to make a mark

Was searching for an outlet for self-expression,

And as reading blogs had been an obsession

I decided to take the plunge and start-

My aim was to write about anything close to my heart

The first few posts were penned in prosaic prose

Then one day, struck by writer’s block, I chose

To put my thoughts in the form of a verse

It was more exciting, so for better or worse

I switched (almost) exclusively to this form

Poems with rhyming verses are now the norm.

In my daily life, I take quite seriously

My profession, which forms my identity

But I am so much more than just a physician

This blog helped me extend beyond my vocation

I am a mother, a traveler, a bibliophile-

All these have a major influence on my style

Of writing, on this blog I tend to reveal

Everything for which I have passion and zeal

Then there are the challenges in photography

That spur me to capture in my lens every curiosity

Thanks to this blog, more skill I have acquired

In observing people and nature, now I am wired

To jot down ideas, keep my camera with me

To constantly provide fuel for my creativity.

**

The blogging community has welcomed me

With open arms, warmth and honesty

As the number of followers keeps growing

I am motivated to keep my ideas flowing

I thank all the readers who have chosen

To spend their time reading what I have penned

As I go forward, I hope my writing would stay

Heartfelt, honest and original all the way.
