#Writer’s Ouote Wednesday


Confession time:
I almost repeated Colleen’s quote for today because it resonanted something in me and that is gratitude to the medium of expression. I know I always celebrate writing and putting forth what you believe in as against what another said off-handedly. But today, I realised again and more intensely that my journal, blank book, keyboard, laptop, pen all need to be celebrated too!

To all my media for expression, thank you, I celebrate you!

Writer's Quote Wednesday_100216

I chose an Anne Lamott quote also. For the times I didn’t really understand, yet I kept writing and in the end it made sense to another in such a great way, I’m grateful and I attribute it to GRACE that never leaves us where it found us. May this quote inspire you as a writer to never leave a life the way you met it. If that life is a good one already, add your best to it, leave your touch in that life. I just touched yours by the way. wink

Out of the flame



Out of the flame came

A rare gem that has been tamed

Life’s beat made humble



Admirer from past

Whose love a week didn’t last

Boasted of great heights

I love poetry anyday. Thanks Ronovan for the challenge #83Gem&Flame. For the 2nd Haiku, rather than use ‘Flame’, I chose ‘Admirer’ and for ‘Gem’ under the noun – Pride (meaning to treasure), I got ‘Boasted’.

Please read up the article on my picture source. I chose the Citrine gemstone because it represents my birthmonth.
