Weekly Gratitude – 17 #SoulfulSunday

As each day disappears into the night I feel incredibly grateful for making it through. 

I started to type my gratitude for the week and I couldn’t put anything that had transpired in the week in eloquent words. 

Because there was nothing spectacular or remotely excitable happened that I could share on this page. I found myself struggling to put a twist on the mundane things that had happened or even to say that I survived the week with my back pain constantly following me around. To be honest, it’s a big win – we ate well, we shared laughter, we picked fights, we slept well on some days and not so well on others – it was a regular week with regular events. And for that, I am incredibly grateful, although, this is not a great content-worthy topic to share. 

So here I am sharing a piece of verse that cropped into my mind as I sit with nothing to share.

When unsure,
let the mind do the talking,
let it start slow,
let it find its pace,
allow the words to flow,
don’t wait for the fireworks to begin at once,
slowly but surely, there will be magic
so what, if it is just a few sprinkles of pixie dust,
the star-studded sky is more brilliant than any fireworks
when the words flow
at its pace,
there will be magic to follow
the scribbles may take another form in due time–
a work of art,
a piece of poetry,
or simply a line stringing together words
holding your thoughts,
often, that’s all it takes
to slip past the unsureness!

I am winding up this post with gratitude in my heart and nothing special to show for it.

  1. That poem is so eloquent, Vinitha! I loved it. You’re so gifted, my friend. Your poems feel so rich in the imagery and rhythmic in how effortlessly they convey so much within them.

    It was lovely to hear that you did actually have a normal (read uneventful) week. I think, the “regular” can sometimes be our biggest blessing in life, you know, especially when things are unsure around us. I’ve been through so many shocks and surprises lately, that I crave the “regular” these days. Hope the back pain is slowly getting better and you are on the mend. Take frequent breaks and rest the sore area as much as you can.

    And do keep writing and sharing your beautiful poems as you always do. Wishing you a productive and pain-free week with ample opportunity to indulge in art and poetry. Go easy and have a great rest of the week, dear.

    Love n hugs

  2. A regular week with regular routine with nothing major happening are also the days to be grateful. But yes there was back pain troubling you and despite that you managed to carry on with your day to day. Your poem states so beautifully that if one slows down and lets the mind to work at its own pace, it is capable of creating something – something worthy, which you have shown here.

  3. Loved your poem. After going through a roller coaster of emotions in the last few weeks, I would welcome an uneventful week, where you can predict just what will happen. God Bless you!
