Wrap-Up

Wrap-up my journey today
Really thrilling while it lasted
Alternating euphoria and depression
Prodding me to continue on
Under self imposed deadline
Posting a poem before midnight every Wednesday

Web of stories with warm and warmth
Why worry when it’s always we, not I
Wish I could fulfil all want and need
Wonder sometimes the wisdom of continuing
Weekend warriors or wimp
Wounded hearts bleeding for women’s rights
Wildfires destroying weeds and wildflowers alike
Wedding bliss marred by bulging waistlines
Within us all is an insatiable wanderlust
Wait and waiting for wind of change in this world
Wheel of fortune never translates to winning
Walk in the woods thinking of what’s wrong
Weary wife keeping wake for family well-being and welfare
Writing in the wall of perils of climate change ignored
What do we know about
Wrong or right, wise or fool
Welcome to a world where fake news make us drool
Woven fabric of humanity stretched thin
Winter of the human race may be beckoning
Warning me that it is wrap-up time for
Wonderful fifty two weeks journey to come to an end

Wrap-Up:Week Fifty Two of My Fifty Two Weeks Journey with the Letter ” W”

Well, that’s it,  culmination of my fifty two weeks journey with the letter “W”.
While reading Wacky Wednesday to my kids, I never thought one day I will be traveling with W
Was it a whim that started this journey of posting to Write Anything Wednesday ?
When I started, I was not even sure that I will be able to complete this journey.
Whatever may be the reason, this was a fantastic journey.
Week after week, for last fifty two weeks, I had fun playing with a word starting with W
Wonderful friends I did meet during this journey, encouraging me to keep on posting.
Worthwhile it may not be, but I gained self confidence that I can stick to a goal.
Write Anything Wednesday  will continue, I may drop in from time to time.
Who knows, I may write about witch hunt in Washington DC next time.
We all know all good things must come to an end one day.
Whether I like it or not, today is that day.
Wrap-up time my dear readers and a big thank you to you all.

WordPress:Week Fifty One of My Fifty Two Weeks Journey with the Letter ” W”

It’s wrapup time. One more week to go and I am done with my yearlong journey.  But before I wrap up, I must say my thanks to WordPress.

WordPress opened a window through which I peered into a world that was hidden from me before.  I had no idea about blogging, did not know anything about posting a blog.  Wordpress gave me a platform to express my feelings. It allowed me to explore a medium that was dormant in my heart for a long, long time.  I made many friends across the seven seas, friends unseen or unheard but very near and dear to me.  Their words of encouragement have kept me going on my year long journey with the letter W.  Looking back over fifty one weeks, I think I must have been a fool to take my first step in this journey.  But there was WordPress at every step of the journey providing me with the much needed confidence to carry on.  Varieties of stories, poems, articles, the plethora of knowledge, each contributed something to this journey.

So here I am today, on the penultimate week of my journey, looking for a word that starts with W for my poem.  Where can I find a better word than WordPress for week fifty one of my fifty two weeks journey with the letter W to start my poem.  Hope my dear readers will agree with me.

Wise

Wise are those not distressed by defeat
In failure stepping stones for success built
Spring will definitely follow winter
End is never till one quits

Wise ones will not digress
Instant gratification is not their goal
Sure and steady will they move
Ensuring final victory theirs to behold

Wise men keep their own counsel
Insulting others not their creed
Silent when required, secretive not
Engaged they are, withdrawn not

Wise and worldly
Ingenuous and informative
Serene and strong
Endears the wise to one and all

Wise:Week Forty Nine of My Fifty Two Weeks Journey with the Letter ” W”

I remember reading a poem in my childhood that extolled the virtues of going to bed early and rising early.  Early to bed and early to rise; makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise.  It has been a long time since I had gone to bed early though I had been getting up quite early from bed to go to college or work.  Maybe that’s why I am not quite healthy, wealthy or wise.

Is it the same reason that we do not see too many wise people in modern society nowadays.  Recent happenings all over the world clearly demonstrate a lack of wisdom all around us.  Increase in wealth, sure.  Lot many people are filthy rich in today’s world compared to bygone eras.  For sure more people are healthy today compared to a century ago.  But do we have more wise people?

That made me think about what are the qualities of wise people.  That thinking resulted in the poem starting with the word “Wise” and that’s my post for week forty nine of my fifty two weeks journey with the letter “W”

Web

Web of lies that I spun
Entrapping people in its deadly grip
Berating my enemies to death

Web I spread far and wide
Ensnaring my victims
Bleeding then slowly till they die

Web world wide helped me spread
Empire that I could not have dreamt
By means ethical to grow full to the brim

Web so devious and bombastic
Empty with false promises trumpeted
Bewildered poor souls bamboozled

Web of mine is attracting new victims
Encircling like a vulture I survey
Bedazzled fools coming to play

Web so strong I weave
Enter at your own risk if you dare
Beware, once in, exit closed forever

Web of steel it is not
Entrapped in it one day I may
But till then time to enjoy and make hay
