Let’s make #PoetryPositive this December #BlogChatterProjects

#PoetryPositiveDecember is the month for celebrations – of sharing smiles, of sharing warmth as the cold winter comes along. It is also a time to look back on the 11 months that went by and ask ourselves “Where did the year go?” December also is the time when we remember and cherish some of the best moments of the year while we make plans for the year ahead. But this December I have a task at hand – that of making #PoetryPositive .

 

We always wish to be happy. But most of the time, we tend to overlook the happy moments. Sometimes it is because we look at bigger things in life to make us happy and hence overlook the little moments of joy that come our way. There are also times when our happy moments are overshadowed by moments of sadness.

 

I’ve been writing poetry quite regularly for some time now. If you are a writer then you are first a reader. But one thing that struck me is that most poems these days are poems of sadness, anger and anguish. That disturbs me a lot! I know sorrow is a great motivator to write, but sorrow shouldn’t be the only motivator. There are positive poems but more often than not they are lost in the din of negativity.

 

I want to do my bit to bring more positivity in the poetry space. This December, I am taking up a project with Blogchatter to make #PoetryPositive.

 

This December, I’ll make a conscious effort to write more positive poems. That’s not all! I’d like each one of you to write a poem that sends out positive vibes. The more the merrier! I’ll be posting my favorites of each week on my blog!

 

While I’ll be writing and sharing positive poems I like, all you have to do is this.
  1. Write a poem that’s positive.ย Write a poem that makes you feel good, write a poem that brings a smile on someone’s face.
  2. Choose a medium of your choice – Blog, Instagram, Twitter or Facebook ย and post it there.
  3. Use the hashtag #PoetryPositive and tag me if you can.
  4. Search for the hashtag #PoetryPositive and read others poems too!
  5. Look for my weekly updates for the poems I loved!
  6. Keep writing more positive poems and keep smiling more!

 

I know life is not a happily ever after. But, it is also not a happily never after! So this December, with the festive cheer, make #PoetryPositive .

Leaving you with one of my old poems :

 

It is in little moments like this, I realize how beautiful life is. As I journey through life I often forget, To count the blessings that I get. I choose to look at things that are bad, And I fail to remember the gifts I had. But as I stare, gazing at the setting sun, A wave of realization sweeps leaving me stunned. For so long I’d been doing it all wrong, I now realize my life has been a gift all along! . . . . . . #TheWriteWorld #poet #poem #poetry #instapoet #poetsofig #poetsofinstagram #writer #motog5splusphotography #writersofig #writersofinstagram #instagood #instacute #instalove #instapoem #poetrycommunity #poetrylove #igers #instadaily #poetrydaily #poetryblogger #focus #life #travelkarnataka #sunset #skyporn #traveldiaries #hampi #igersbengaluru #i_clicked_it

    That is indeed a great idea, Reema!
    We so need some positive words to motivate us, lift our spirits on gloomy days and urge us to keep doing our best, to look for the silver lining and to be happy and grateful for what we have.
