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: Zipped

Don’t spill the bean
Keep what you have just seen
Write it the water
And don’t ever falter

Don’t utter a word
Or try to be bold
Just shut up your mouth
To hide any doubt

Just play it coy
And don’t use your voice
Pretend you are mute
When there is dispute.

A to Z Challenge: Yearn

Longer than forever
Can’t get rid of you ever
I already cried a river
But failed to get over

How could this be wrong
When the feelings so strong
I can’t get enough of you
Of all the things that we do

Elusive as it may seem
I’ll hold on to my dream
I will fight for you dear
Losing you I can’t bear

A to Z Challenge: Wistful

Loving you in a distance
For I can’t stand a chance
Seeing you with my furtive glance
Causes my heart to dance

When I’m feeling blue
I just think of you
If only you are near
I will know no fear

I could lose my sanity
Willing to leave reality
Though I refuse to see
You and I could never be

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

A to Z Challenge: Unfuckwithable

HarriedI don’t give a damn
When they bring me down
Won’t lend them a frown
Though my world’s upside down

I just set aside
Hold on to my pride
It’s not worth my time
Even a penny or dime

You can’t see me pout
When facing a bout
They can’t stand a chance
Defeated? Not even once!
