Written as part of 52 Weeks of Gratitude Challenge which I’m attempting this year.


My neighborhood

Week 35 – Thankful Tuesdays

Calmness is useful when you’re a poet. It helps to think, and sometimes even to hear thoughts. I’m thankful to be living in a residential area of the city where there’s not much hullaballoo from the traffic or noisy neighbors who make a commotion for little things. The area is quite serene too; there are some trees, and houses with gardens and the occasional lovable stray dog. (It’s not that there’s a lack of stray dogs, it’s only the lovable strays that are occasional.) My neighbor has two adorable girls who adore me and come to talk to me often. Children bring back the smile so easily when I’m feeling down, and they know how to. They don’t leave me alone, and keep talking about their day, what they did in school and such. I’m quite blessed to have moved to such a neighborhood I think, and I’m happy to be there.

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.
