Surrounded by books from epics to golden treasuries to song books, I have marvelled at the skill of poets from ancient to modern times. As alluded in Shakespeare’s Sonnet XVIII, poetry is eternal.
As long as men can breathe or eyes can see,
So long lives this and this gives life to thee.
I am intimidated by all the giants that have written the World. The emotion they delivered through each and every word, each and every letter haunts me. If each one of the poets is as big as the Milky Way, I am smaller than an ant. The only thing I can do is look up to them in awe.

There’s no conclusion, at least, not yet. Follow along on my journey as I attempt this self-imposed challenge. Hope you enjoy!
I’ll be using words as prompts for the first 20 days. I chose the final prompts and their order with an online random chooser from the prompts my family and friends gave me. Here’s the 20 prompts:
For the last ten days, I will decide the topic on my own. As a very indecisive person these la...
The spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings: it takes its origin from emotion recollected in tranquility.
This is the famous definition of poetry given by Wordsworth. In the same book he calls his poetry ‘experimental’. According to him, it is the poet’s business to embody in their poetry...
I have always been captivated by poetry. I used to think that all that rhymes is poetry. Soon, I found out that is very very far from the truth. Rhymes are not always poetry. Likewise, poetry doesn’t always have to rhyme. In fact, I understood very recently that rhymes, meter, caesura and so on a...
That is why, I decided to challenge myself to a 30 day poetry challenge. I will write one poem everyday for thirty days. No excuses. So, at the end I’ll have 30 poems to show for the challenge.
I don’t expect any of the poems to be any good. But what I will promise is that I’ll write each a...
But, I can write too. I cannot write good. But I too pour my passion into my words. It is my shortcoming that the passion doesn’t reach the readers. That is why, I need to improve.
I have understood that I don’t really write as much as I need to. A friend had recently reminded me of the wor...
This challenge will begin on 1st July with the first poem and continue without break until 30th July.
On 31st July I’ll be posting the final blog post in the series containing all the links to the 30 poems.
I may share my experience about doing this challenge in a separate post if I h...
I am giving myself the liberty to post bad poems. All the poems will be written from the heart but my words don’t always co-operate with me. But if I sought for perfection in every poem, I doubt that I’d even post one poem.
The ultimate goal of this challenge is simply to have 30 poems at t...

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
