Creative day


Sound of lawn mower

Singing myna, hopping sparrows

My haven for writing,

Embracing this form of day

I have fallen in love with life.

Lately, I’ve been noticing this change in my writing habit that stillness of night creates hindrance in my creative writing process. During the day when there’s the sound of life on the street outside my home, my mind remains active.

This morning, when I could hear the sound of lawn mower in my neighbor’s garden and twittering of sparrows on my terrace, I was thinking nothing but this very line that “I’m in love with life”.

This post is response to Silver’s Weekly #Tanka #Poetry Prompt Challenge #5 SHAPES & HEART.


For heart I’ve used love and for shapes, I’ve used form.

    1. Hi Deb,
      Thank you for finding this poem beautiful to read. It’s been a long while that you left a comment on my blog and due to unavailability of internet connection, I was not able to respond you.
      I’m so happy to get back to writing here 🙂

      1. Oh boy, I was without internet for a week once and it seemed like forever!! I’m so glad you are connected again. I have been thinking of you and thought it’s been too long since I’ve visited you and must pop over and puff here you are!! That’s the Universe at work. I’ll be stopping by!! 🙂

            1. Ohhhhhh I was pronouncing puff differently as I was reading your comment versus how it was meant to be pronounced in my comment, funny. My comment was pronounced like poof, like you just appeared, and actually that’s how I should have spelled it now that I think about it. It all makes sense now! 😁

    1. Lawn mower really did the job, the night before I tried to write it but couldn’t do it and in the morning while listening all these voices, I enjoyed writing it 🙂
      For me this kind of noise is the beauty of life and I’m in love with it 🙂
