Happy Anniversary to Poemattic!

It has been two years since I joined WordPress and the fascinating world of blogging. The experience has been most gratifying and I have been inspired by so many of my followers and readers. I am proud to be among such profound thinkers, peacemakers, lovers of the arts, photographers, and all others who share their day-to-day experiences and the rigors of life.

I have cried with a few of you during hard times the loss of love ones. I have laughed out loud with some of you at the wittiest comments and posts. I have been mesmerized by the creative art work and photography that transports the soul and the imagination to other realms. Thanks to my community of bloggers and to all my followers for what will be very memorable memories.

My life has changed for the better. I follow some pretty interesting bloggers who not only offer a fresh perspective on things but also open new pathways to joy and fulfillment. The blogging experience has given me a quiet refuge to speak from my heart and opportunities to help me check and reevaluate my poetry, my purpose and what really matters.

I think I am ready to reach out for some bold goals. I have submitted several manuscripts for publication. I never had the confidence to do that before. I will accept rejection if I am turned down but I am also thinking I may self publish. Time will tell. I will be still and patient in the now waiting for the moment that will be.

My baby grandson is teaching me some valuable lessons about unconditional love, patience and the simple pleasures of life. He marvels at the simplest things. He relishes every moment with just himself. He listens in attention when the birds sing and the dog barks and delights with the caress of his tender chubby cheeks. The amazing world of new wonders and discovery is heart warming. These few months with him and my six-year-old grandson inspired me to write more poetry for children.

So thanks to all of you for your support and inspiration. Happy Blogging and may poetry always be a source of happiness. Celebrate with me today by sending my blog to someone you know, Making a comment and/or by clicking like. 🙂
