Warning:Week Forty Seven of My Fifty Two Weeks Journey with the Letter ” W”

We are always warned by somebody or other about something or other.  Warning labels are part of our daily life.  We have warning about our health, our finances, our education, our retirement, etc., etc., etc.  We are so dependant on warning as if without warning our life can not go on.  However we sometimes do not get any warning about some of the most important things about our lives.  The recent passing away of Alan Thicke is a warning to all of us regarding the fleeting nature of life.  I am sure the people of California would be more than happy to get enough early warning regarding impending earthquakes.

However sometimes even with warning signs flashing, people either tend to ignore at their own peril or find it hard to believe.  Such was the case of the recent election in USA.  Though there were plenty warning signs that the results may not be what majority of the polls were predicting, lots of people either were complacent or chose to ignore those warnings.  Now it is time to pay the price for ignoring those warning signs.  The events of last month and half are sending enough warning signs of things that are shaping up to revoke and repeal many of the progressive achievements of last few years.  Accepting the results of the election does not mean that we will have to acquiesce meekly to all the rhetorics that are flying around.  Acceptance does not mean to be resigned to one’s fate.  We need to stay engaged in the process, pay heed to the warning signs and also warn and educate regarding the perils of abject surrender.

As I an marching towards the completion of my yearlong journey with the letter “W”, I am realizing many of my Write Anything Wednesday posts are taking a subtle political tinge.  May be I will take some rest at the end of the year and regroup my thoughts.  Maybe this post is a warning to me that I need to open up more to other ideas.  Whatever it may be, for week forty seven of my fifty two weeks journey with the letter “W”, I start my poem with the word ” Warning”.  And my dear readers, I am warning you, the poem definitely has a political tinge.

Poetry is my passion. I am not a methodical writer. I have no set topics to write about. What I feel, perceive, think about, I will like to share in this blog. I open my mind to the world. Like the weather, sometimes my poems are cloudy, sometimes stormy. I always like to see sunshine streaming through the leaves of trees, so I hope I can share some of those sunshine with my readers.
