Nine Hundred

Each word, each line
Each thought I relive
Effort put, times nine
Desire more, they give

For each sorrow gone
New paths are found
A fresh smile is born
To spread all around

Milestones are many
Passion remains same
Finding new friends
Stay true to my name

No destination here
A journey magnifique
A moment to admire
Then continue to seek

With each step taken
A new lesson learnt
New dreams awaken
Old hurdles are burnt

Each drop of ink spilt
Each beat, my heart
Knits a magical quilt
Loves this poetic art

With this post, my blog turns 900 posts young. Thanks to all friends, who I’ve got through this journey and who’ve given me that push at much needed times. Cheers.

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.

  11. Leo,
    Congrats on the 900 posts that is amazing. I really loved your poem and you are an exceptional rhymer. I also have to give you props for calling me on my poem. Everybody always thinks it’s about a man and it’s not. It is so the ocean, always has been.
    Thanks for the read

    • hi LoLa.. thanks for the wishes ๐Ÿ™‚ glad u loved the poem and the rhyme..

      yeah, I could tell.. there were lines there that were filled with the sounds of ocean & seaside..
      thanks for reading mine too.. ๐Ÿ˜€

  12. Nine hundred you say? Wow!

    I love the final stanza the most. This is how I see my life and the ink I’ve spilt–or the keyboards I’ve worn through.

    Well done. I must peruse the other 899.

    • yeah, 900 ๐Ÿ™‚ some are mine, some are guest posts on milestone times ๐Ÿ˜€ yeah.. last verse is relatable for many I think, Jgrow… please feel free to peruse them ๐Ÿ˜€

  13. Wow–congratulations! I’m so new to blogging, I can’t imagine ever hitting your mark.

    You picked a great piece to celebrate with: The last stanza in particular painted a great picture for me.

    I’m happy you enjoyed my dancing piece, too. Some of the inspiration for it was friends who say they can’t dance–if I can get back at it after all of the mucking about surgery has done with my feet, I’m no longer going to accept that excuse from anyone!

    • when I started, I didn’t imagine 9 posts even actually, Julie.. ๐Ÿ™‚ you might get there soon too..
      glad you liked the piece.. thanks very much for dropping by..

      I know.. I can dance, but like I said, two left feet ๐Ÿ˜‰

  14. Leo!!! Job extremely well done this piece is absolutely lovely!!! so glad I stopped by! Thanks for sharing!!!!

  15. 900 posts? WOW! I’m only 8 past 100 right now, I just opened the blog up since November 09. Very good poem, and the pen truly is mightier than the sword, but again, you have to use the sword for when the pen fails.
