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.
