5th Anniversary!

Doodle by my daughter

8th May, 5 years ago, I took my first step into world of blogging.  From my first post, to about 850+ posts till date, from an absolute novice to a published writer along with many online publications now, it has been an incredible journey of learning and growth.

As my blog Radhikasreflection celebrates its 5th anniversary today, I would like to thank each one of my readers for their constant support and feedback throughout. Some of you have been with my here, right from my initial days.  Heartfelt gratitude to you my dear friends. Will look forward to your amazing company in the journey ahead too.

I sit at my table, in the alcove by the window

as the white curtain sways to the zephyr,

wafting in, with the fragrances of a world beyond,

drenched in life’s palette, in a motley of colors.

My ears soak in those whispers of thoughts,

their essence permeates into my being.

 I gather the scattered unspoken words together

cajoling them into an expressive frame.

I breathe life into them, birthing my poems,

radiating a genuine warmth of emotions,

that emanate from the core of my soul.

My cup of gratefulness overflows with your support. So a big thank you to all my blogger friends. Do let me know what do you like about my writing?

I would like to leave you with a special request.  India is grappling under an intense wave of the deadly pandemic, do take a few minutes to send out a healing prayer to India and the world. Hoping all the collective efforts will help us come out of this dark phase soon. Thank you!!

Stay safe and stay blessed ❤ !
