NaPoWriMo Day 30:

Yay! I did it again, fourth year in a row 🙂

Today is the last day of NaPoWriMo 2020 and I’m super excited that I completed it successfully, following all prompts to the ‘T’. It was quite challenging this time, with everyone at home due to lockdown but I’m glad that I got all the support from family and came through cheerfully. Thanks to all my readers and fellow bloggers for reading and commenting on my posts and keeping me motivated. Congratulations to everyone who completed a month of writing!

And last, but not least, our final (optional) prompt! The challenge today is to write a poem about something that returns. 


I feel alive, everyday


Spring revisited us;

The blossoming flowers enchanted the butterflies,

Pearls of dew came back every day to wake up the florets-

To resuscitate their beauty,

Heedless that they will perish in the act, at the kiss of the Sun

Sun, that never failed to bless the Earth, every day,

Every day, since decades, since centuries



I’d slept with a heavy heart; again

Premonitions, encumbrances, reservations

Somehow found a way to eclipse my mind, every time

Restraining my rationality,

Captivating my verve

Fuelling my resentments, questioning my vehemence

Unsolicited, each time



But with the first rays of Sun that announce dawn

Hope always managed to sneak in

To reinstate my faith in Universe

To act as the wind beneath my wings

To rekindle the spark that night had doused

And I rise like a phoenix

To face new ordeals, to feel alive again; each time!
