Reflection: A to Z Challenge

survivor-atoz [2016] v2

Cheers to a wonderful  experience in writing for A to Z Challenge – April 2016! It was really a fulfilling and enjoyable activity all throughout the entire month. What I enjoyed the most is the camaraderie developed between participants. Writing a post almost everyday and reading other’s work, leaving comments and answering back gave my blog more exposure and garnered me additional blogs to follow. Truly, blog-o-sphere offers a world in the net where people can be who they really are and can express themselves artistically in various writing styles.

My theme is poetry about life or love. Kindly check all my entries here. Of all the poems I’ve written for this challenge, my favorite is the 24th letter of the alphabet:

XENIA

We all travel in this life
Sometimes burdened with some plight
Our paths, gone out of sight
Aching to see a speck of light

She greets with a sweet smile
Coupled with sparkling eyes
Welcomes guest with open arms
A cup of coffee to keep them warm

Truly she have a heart so stout
Her company extends from North to South
So if you long to find some rest
Go to her house and be her guest!

 

I would like to express my gratitude to the hosts of this great blogging event. And to all my fellow participants – survivor or not, we all deserve a round of applause because we rock!

A to Z Challenge: Vanity

Staring in the mirror
No need to exert any effort
With this beauty I hold
Head turner I’m always told

Tantalizing eyes
Sweetest smile
Never fail to mesmerize
All are willing to pay a price

Such a victim of vanity
An object of other’s jealousy
If they can only realize
There’s more in me than what meets the eye
