A Year Gone By

 
Today, Writering! turns a year old. All the growth, all the maturing has led it to this point where there is only one direction to follow. The road goes on. Writering! is now a year old, and still growing.
 


As a year goes by,
I reminisce.
On all of life's stories I have seen.

As a year goes by,
I think about
All of the ones I wrote about.

All of life's woes and joys that I wrote about.
All of my experiences, my imagination and my plight.
All has been seen by my pen and this space.
As I write on about it all at life's gentle pace.

It started as a means to an end.
From the Road that was to never end.
Now this road is a year worn.
And it is strong and it goes ever on.

And the writing, now a passion, no more a hobby.
Stronger, more arduous than I could have imagined before.
The man in me has grown as has the ink faded on my pages.
On pages lying over a book bereft of ink and life's stages.

A chapter now begins, as a year has waned on.
The chapter of my life continues on this space in my words.
For all to read, few to comprehend fully, I write on and on.
About all I see, feel and believe is possible.
The ink flows on, to drown another year in itself.

The flowing ink, so clear,
Portraying a journey of a very funny year.
May there be more of love and less of fear,
In these yellow pages of time and life, that I hold so dear.

Happy blog-o-budday. As I've mentioned time and again, one of my favourite things to do is come and rest on this page of yours, which I always relate to. Wishing for more such years and more such words of yours that never fail to touch my heart. :-)

Writing is a cathartic experience and a blog is more than just a platform to showcase your writing. You get to interact with such interesting people, engage in arguments and sometimes even find love :)

Richa said...

@Enchanta :
What a year it has been.
One worthy of the best of tales.
And more of them I shall now weave.
About the one that has now begun.

I hope to keep touching your heart in newer ways. This space means much more to me than it ever did before because of your very presence. :)

@Purba Di : You're absolutely right. Though I've rarely engaged in arguments, I've certainly done the others. It's all now an integral part of my life. :)

@Richa : Thanks a lot. I certainly will. :)

D2 said...
