Thank You!

Thank you is a magic word, all across the world.

Happy is one who hears it, grateful is the one who says it.

Available to all, so please use it.

No condition applies, no need to be shy.

Keep on using, you will be surprised.

Your world will be changed, when people realise.

Only if you try, it will never die.

Use it today, it will surely make your day!

Writing 201, Day 2: Gift, Acrostic, Smile

There’s a whole array of sensations and emotions attached to gifts, whether you’re the gifter or the giftee. The tension between packaging and contents, the joy of tearing through layers of wrapping, the surprise or disappointment of discovery once you know what’s inside.

Today’s form: acrostic

Acrostics at a glance: An acrostic is any poem in which the first (or last) letters of each line combine to spell out a word or a phrase, or follow the order of the alphabet.

If you’re feeling particularly ambitious, you can try creating acrostics using both the first and last letters of every verse — this is called (shocking!) a double acrostic.

Today’s device: simile

A simile, like its name suggests, makes a connection or introduces the idea of similarity between two concepts that aren’t intrinsically connected, leaving an interesting mental image in its wake. It’s a fancy name for saying that cake is like poison, or that a baby’s wails are as loud as thunder. If you’re up for it, include a simile in your poem today.

Make sure the things you compare are conceptually different enough. Don’t compare apples to oranges: compare apples to planets, or animals, or sounds.

  1. Such a beauty this poem is. THANK YOU 🙂

    I have a suggestion for you, my friend 🙂

    I always want to share good posts of my friends on FB, Twitter and Google Plus as I have accounts there.

    Could you please add those buttons to your post in sharing settings?

    I will be thankful if you do that!

    Love and light ❤

    Anand 🙂

      1. I am talking about Webpage only my friend. I see reblog options. BUt there are no Google/FB/Twitter buttons. You can add them by going to Dashboard—>Settings—>Sharing

      2. Hi Anand, I’ve conducted a poll and everyone who did it said they could see all my social media sharing buttons. Could it be some settings in your device that disable the view? ‘Cos I read your comment in Romanus’s post that you also couldn’t see his sharing buttons, which I could.

I'd love to hear from you...
