Week 2 of My Fifty Two Weeks Journey with “W”

This is my second week of of the fifty two weeks journey of writing a poem starting with letter “W” for Write Anything Wednesday.  This Wednesday started rough with some computer virus affecting my computer.  Everytime I click on wordpress.com, my computer will ask me, yes ask me with a loud enough voice, to call the number on the screen to clean up my computer while the blue screen of death would stare back at me.  I am sure if I had called that number my computer would have been really, really cleaned. By the time I cleaned my computer and was ready to start, I was mentally drained.  I wondered loudly why did I sign up for this long journey and then without any warning, today’s starting word literally fell into my laps ( or to my keyboard?).  Yes, I found my word for today.  WONDER.  Now I have to figure out what do I write starting with “Wonder”.  I will wonder about it during my Chinese New year lunch with my friends.  This is the Year of the Monkeys but I promise you it is not going to be any monkey business. Till that time, my dear readers, I leave you to “Wonder” what it is going to be.

Wednesday, sorry Write Anything Wednesday

It’s that day of the week again that I had signed up earlier, to “Write Anything”.As I said last week, I had written nothing and sometimes I had written something, but never anything. So last week I had to look for anything to write. I think I found anything at last. After looking far and wide, deep inside me and outside, I have finally decided on Anything. For next one year, starting February 3, 2016, every Wednesday, I will write a poem the first word of which will start with the letter “W”. Why? Oh, even why starts with a “W”. For the simple reason that Wednesday starts with the letter W, wonderful starts with the letter “W”, world starts with the letter “W”. Shall I go on with my ramblings? Even WordPress starts with the letter “W”. Is it a coincidence? I do not think so. I have the first word for the first and the last poem in mind but now I have to start my journey to look for the other fifty words starting with the “W” that I can write a poem with. I hope I am up to the challenge. One thing I can promise you, the poems may be wonderful, wise, wacky, whimsical or wicked but will not be boring. See, there is no “W” in boring.  I will try not to write anything political so that I don’t have to write about Dubya.  Oh, I am OK to write political because Dubya’s name does not start with a W.  Phew, that was a scare!

Enough of Anything for one Wednesday. Now it is time for me to wander in this wonderful wide world.

Just Some Thoughts

First attempt at blog post for Blogging 101

I started blogging two weeks back during the last part of 2015.  It was my trial to reach out to the community of poets that blog regularly.  I had started writing poetry about two years back as a way of expressing my feelings.  For nearly two years, I kept my writing private as I was not sure if any of my poems was worth sharing with others.  I had been sharing them with my family members and few of my friends.  It is their encouraging words and gentle push that brought me to the world of blogging.  As I was a complete novice to blogging, I jumped into the opportunity provided by wordpress to learn blogging in a more formal way through their Blogging 101 course.

My main interest is in poetry and I am following blogs mainly related to poetry.  However I do enjoy reading creative writing and photography also.

So here is my first post to blogging 101.
