Father's Day

Fathers' day is celebrated in honor of all the amazing dads in the world.  It is a celebration that allows us to show gratitude and affection to our fathers,  something that we often need to be reminded to do. So,  Papa, I hope you like this poem.  It is my way of showing you how much I really love you.
    Dear Papa,
You are the foundation, 
That holds our family together
You are the pillar, 
That supports us

I am the sea,
And you are the beam of the lighthouse

As you like to say,
Our love ,
cannot be measured in inches, 
nor in miles,
For our love is larger than

I'm currently in Barcelona, Spain, travelling with my family. We reached in the evening ,following which we went out for dinner. After dinner, we walked around a bit, and I saw a beautiful piece of marble. It was oddly shaped, and it wasn't white, but to me it was marvelous. Here is a poem I wrote about it:

Strings of Black,
On a bed of grey,
Meander into each other,
Creating the perfect marble

Pure white it may not be,
Nor may it be in a square,
Dark and Mysterious,
This marble that hangs in the air

The marbled sky,
visible in between two trees, 
is a splendid view,
The marble of the sky.

Unfortunately, I forgot to take a picture of the sky as it was yesterday. If I can see a marbled sky today, I will be sure to update the post, and add in the picture, though it may not match my description.

Summer Challenge Update

As you may already know from one of my earlier posts, I have signed up for The Big Book Challenge, hosted by bookbybook. I have finished reading my first book, Death on the Nile [ Agatha Christie], and was advised by Sue[ author of bookbybook] to read another one. Death on the Nile was only 416 pages, and I'm afraid this book is even shorter. I plan on reading Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, which is 407 pages.

Challenge yourself this year, and sign up for the Big Book Challenge here. You have until September to read at least one book which is longer than 400 pages.

The fjords

This is a poem I wrote while in Norway last year. We were on a ferry and out on the fjords [ inlets of water surrounded with cliffs on both sides]. I hope you like it


A bird finds its way around,
looking so small
on the vast land it calls home.
The mist on the highest mountain,
Is naught but clouds,
Though from a distance,
It might look grand
A promise of fresh showers,
Granted by the gray sky
 lay unspoken yet heard
The plain of glass,
that lies flat on the ground,
Is the water,
No longer controlled by the wind.
The bursts of colour that dot the green,
Are houses along the shore,
Right before we enter the fjords.

Summer Challenge- I'm done with Book 1

For the big book summer challenge[ hosted by bookbybook], I planned on reading only one book. That book was "Death on the Nile" by Agatha Christie. As mentioned in my last post, the book was 416 pages long. Big, but not too big.
It was an AMAZING BOOK!!!! Oh wow! I absolutely loved the feeling of befuddlement  that I felt throughout the whole book. 
 When Poirot started to explain who the murderer was [ or in this case, who the murderers were], I realized that as a reader, I was a part of the audience that was listening intently to Poirot's speech. I love how Christie creates characters who seem so unlikely to do anything harmful, who seem so mild and gentle, but turn out to be murderers.
  I think that the beginning of the book was slightly confusing for me, because I couldn't remember the names of all the characters, and kept going back to the first chapter. I preferfed the ending of the book to the beginning.
 It's sad that three characters had to die before the truth was uncovered, but I think that the plot would have been incomplete without all 3 deaths. Oh well...
 As I mentioned earlier, this was an AMAZING BOOK!!!

Summer Challenge Update

The Big Book Summer Challenge is a challenge hosted by bookbybook. I have mentioned the blog in another post, so you can read that here. The challenge is to read one or more " Big Books"[ anything over 400 pages] this summer.
  The challenge started on May 22nd, and ends on September 7th. I am starting really late, but I have only just found a book over 400 pages that I would like to read. I am reading Agatha Christie's " Death on the Nile", which is 416 pages. I plan to read only this one book, but if I end up reading another book, I will be sure to post an update. If you want to join the challenge, you can do so here.
 I hope you join and challenge yourself this summer. I'll try to post some updates on the book as well, but they will just be short progress reports.
Well, it's time to start reading...

Phenomenal Woman by Maya Angelou

" I'm a woman,
   Phenomenal Woman,
   That's me"

This is the confidence that each woman should have. Each woman should know that her beauty lies not in her smile, hair and clothes, but in her touch, her laugh and her work. Because all women are " women phenomenally, phenomenal women".

This is a poem I wrote as a part of a creative writing workshop a few days ago. The workshop was hosted by Duckbill. To find out more about the Duckbill workshops you can go to :

I hope you enjoy the poem.


I hear a ripple,
caused by children plodding through waves

I hear the cacophony,
of seagulls hunting for fish
I hear the swish of their swoop,
As they capture their prey

I hear the chatter of parents,
As their children play
I hear the wail of a child,
As his creation is swept,
Away by a wave

I hear oh so many sounds,
At the sea's side,
I hear oh so many sounds,
By the sea's shore
