Happy New Year, Folks!!

Hey there my readers, it has been a while since I was here wasn’t it? 🙂 Yep, but now I am back. The New Year has arrived, and with it has brought a mixed start, filled with a lot of surprises, joy and little shocks. Let me first wish you all a very happy and prosperous 2010. I’m not back poetically as yet, but yes, I shall be.. perhaps later on today. Right now, I am at my seat in my office. Yeah, I got my first job and so far, I am enjoying it. The workload will be more later on of course, but for now, the first day seems to be going smoothly.
Another joyous surprise was my friend Amity doing the double at Acrostic Only, having won both Poet of the Month, and Most Active Poet of the Month, for December. Congratulations to her for this wonderful achievement and may she get many more. It was an honor sharing the Active Poet badge with her for December too. I’ve also become addicted to farmville, but it is sort of a good addiction. It is helping keeping my mind calm.
The little shock was NOT getting a Best Acrostic for any prompt I attempted in December. It was the first time that has happened, because I’ve got atleast one every month previously. I guess I’ll be writing lots of acrostics this year, and trying to hone my poetic skills. Coming to that of course, I thank every reader for his/her wonderful support last year.
I’ll stop here for now. Will come back with a poem perhaps later this evening itself! Cheerio and all that! Oops, nearly forgot. I’ve changed my pen name. I’m now officially, “Leo, The Amateur Poet”. I’ve only to change the sign to add “Leo”, which I’ll do once I get home.

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
