Ripples of Ripples!

Tick tock..
Tick tock..
Tick tock..

The clock kept ticking..
As a new blog was created..
As I wrote my first post..

Tick tock..
Tick tock..
Tick tock..

One post..
Next post..
Few posts..
And here
Another post..
It’s still ticking..

Tick tock..
Tick tock..

The shrill is sweet..
For it marks time..
A special moment..
And it chimes to shout out…

Here is the 50th post..
On the 600th day of the first Ripple..

It’s time to throw back a quick glimpse..

I started blogging as a complete novice..
Just to spill out few words of my thoughts..
After 600 days, I’m still a novice,
Yet my brain is being filled better everyday..
Better than I could have ever dreamed..

What I thought I knew,
At the start of blogging
Has undergone a radical change..

My old beliefs were shattered..
Fears were crumbled..
Still I am trusted..
Just to be myself and
Still be better than awesome..
For new paths were discovered..
And a new journey has begun..
Within my thoughts and beyond..
In the blogosphere and beyond..

The more I read and tread,
The more I learn and realise,
How much vast the ocean is..
And how tiny a drop* I’m in blogging..

I thought I was looking
At a part of the world..
I now know I’m just looking
At a pin hole on
The outlines* of blogosphere,
Which makes me awkward..

I wonder why*
I ever thought that
I could be worthy of blogging..

And I now realise that,

The simple moments of life*
Have turned into
The treasured moments of heart,
With the joy of
Appreciation, Belief
And Compliments
From the Dear ones of blogosphere..

The life is not just about growing..
It also includes struggling and
It’s about not giving up..
It’s all about writing*,
Even through storms..

It is all about learning to stay afloat..
You just keep Jiving your way*
And you would eventually end up
In the path you are destined to..

You don’t choose a path.
The path chooses you..
And all you could hope is,
Let the walk* be filled with beauty..
And let’s not be blind to ignore
The beauty in the mundane..

When the eyes behold beauty,
Our lips light up with a smile..
Let’s spill out all our smiles here and there*
And let us straighten the world
With the curve of our lips
And the spill of our pens..

And here above
Are the eight bloggers,
Who got struck
In my compass,
With their unique charm,
To guide me
Into various realms
And have accompanied me,
In the travel of my blogosphere..

There are lot more bloggers
And pointers that have led me to here..
They had been of great help
In unravelling
My knots of thoughts*

I could have got lost
And would not be here today
Even if one of them
Were absent or invisible..

I’m reading writing living* here..
And that’s not a mere living
But it’s living the dream* life..

Let my soul talk*
And let that touch* yours..
Let you not be a Martian*
But let be a sweet Mithai*
When your heart speaks*
To hit on the like button..

It is possible only coz of YOU..
The one who’s reading this..
Till this post, till this line..
For you have been with me..
So long through the journey..

Now let me ask you,
To follow the stars..
Spread through my post..
For these are the stars
That brighten up
my dark nights
and are my companion
at my glowing moments..

Now I’m going at a loss of words..
For the simple two words “Thank You”
Is so short to express what I feel..

As I go in search of words..
I hear that sound again..

Tick tock..
Tick tock..
Tick tock..

The time stands test
To our trials and treasures..

Let me hear many more tick tocks..
And let time hear many more treasures..
Of mine from you…

Tick tock..
Tick tock..
Tick tock..

P.S. – I’m sorry that YOUR blog hasn’t find place in here yet.. I do thank you from the depth of my heart.. For reading till here.. You are indeed special to me.. Which is beyond the realms of words.. 😉


Thank You!!!

  1. Do our minds work at the same frequency? I was thinking of writing a similar post to include the names of my WP family and here I am, a part of your family 🙂 My version will also be coming soon 😉 Loved the gesture. Thank you so much Aadhirai 🙂 Really touched 😉

    1. Hahaha.. I’m glad I raced you ahead this time.. 😉

      There were few ideas I had and I similarly find them implemented on one or the other of our friend’s blog and I felt this same way!!
      I guess that’s what made the transformation from mere followers to family!!

      Now I’m looking forward for your version of this!!

  2. WOW!! that’s awesome Aadhirai..
    I too really enjoy blogging and writing..
    I really love reading your posts as well..
    But then I moved to blore and there has been some changes in my life,
    so was coping up with those that I kinda missed reading your stuff,
    and after long it is really refreshing to read your posts….

    I loved these lines especially,

    ”You don’t choose a path.
    The path chooses you..
    And all you could hope is,
    Let the walk* be filled with beauty..
    And let’s not be blind to ignore
    The beauty in the mundane..”

    keep writing..
    and I would try my best to cope up with your pace and read your posts.. 🙂 🙂 🙂

    Best wishes Aadhirai,

    1. The pleasure is mutual dear..
      You were the first follow on my blog and how could I miss you to join this party..

      Yes, over time things change, life moves and grows forward..

      Though I do remember you more than I visit your blog, I’m also guilty of not following them as I used to in the past..

      And out of those lines you mentioned, the first two lines belongs to to my friend Jithin and those are the opening words in the intro for his new book.. Do check out that book and all other blogs too.. 😉

      Whatever you do, wherever you go, let all the goodness find your way and the smile keeps glowing and growing forever..

      My Best and Hearty wishes to you!! 🙂

    1. Oh dear bright star.. You deserve a special thanks for being mundane.. Oh sorry.. I meant your Mundane Monday Challenges.. It has made me post more and eventually make my constellation bigger..

      Haven’t you heard of the Chaos theory.. 😉 I am indeed making whirlpools somewhere.. 😉

      And a little secret for you, the wisher of whirlpools.. My previous tagline was “Yet another flap of a butterfly”

      Wishes for you to become brighter and a celebrity so my constellation becomes special.. 😉

      PS: You could search for the chaos theory just in my blog.. 😉

  3. Now..
    this is bad…
    and really bad…!!

    Firstly congrats on your 50th post dear and happy to see you writing forward; unlike me 😀
    And thanks for the tag !!!
    [I am second in this list !!!! I dint know that!!]
    At-least that gave me a reason to keep my blog alive !! 😉
    The poem was really wonderful, bringing in everybody through their description 🙂 It was really cool !!

    And “bad” because; my “Come back post” was planned in something of this sort 😀
    ***I really have no idea as to when would it happen; but i had a plan 😛 **
    But you implemented it way,way better than me ..
    Good for that !! 🙂
    Keep writing and be the awesomeness you are 🙂

    1. I see most of us think alike.. And I am really glad to be ahead and implement it before you people..

      And I just wanted to throw in a surprise for you.. Hope now I am excused for troubling to revive your blog.. By the way, please don’t be so humble to say so about your come back post..

      I am eager to see how you are spinning out this idea.. So please don’t deny the pleasure of your readers.. 😉

    2. Now, I am also waiting for your comeback post 🙂
      I wrote something of the sort a few days back on my blog, just a post but not poetry when I got back after a break.
      So, yes, a lot of us think alike. We differ only in the choice of our words…

    3. Hey hi 🙂

      And based on my dedication there would be a dozen more come back posts to be posted in the future 😀
      Anyways do stay connected once I am “back”

  4. Congratulations on your 50th post and reaching Day 600. Awesome! I have read many posts on celebrating milestones but this one takes the cake!
    A beautiful poem and thanks for the shout out. It feels good to see fellow bloggers doing better and discovering things anew.
    P.S. I would love to hear more about the ‘shattered beliefs’ and ‘crumbled fears’ 🙂

    1. Thank you so much for being part of this party and for sharing the cake.. 😉

      People are in general not-so-friendly-and-appreciative was a terribly ignorant belief of mine which is being shattered to the tiniest possible pieces with all the support from my wonderful wp family..

      I do write, but could my writing interest or inspire others was a fear which is again crumbled by these wonderful people..

      Thank you so much for being so sweet and curious.. 😉

    2. I too started writing for that same reason and few of my initial posts were from pretty old ideas..

      But I would be lying, if I say I don’t care at all about my stats.. They are obviously encouraging and wonderfully boosting the ego and very importantly, those were also a factor in improving my confidence in my words.. 😉

      But thankfully I’m not yet addicted to those and I think I’ve still not lost that “writing for myself phase”.. 😉

  5. That was a beautiful surprise Aadhirai!
    I was intrigued when in saw those blue marks, but I didn’t realised what they were for. The first recognition came with ‘smiles here and smiles there’ but then again I dismissed it as just a phrase you had used. Then I went down till the end of the post to know the meanings of ‘*’ only to be pleasantly surprised. As o read ahead,I was really glad to see my blogs title in poem. That’s such a sweet gesture. Thanks a lot!
    With to see that 1000th post soon !
    Happy blogging!!

    1. Is it really 1000th you meant?! That’s too overwhelming..

      Thanks for that wonderful comment!!

      I’m so happy with your kind words.. My mission accomplished.. 😉 The surprise was exactly what I wished for all my dear friends..

      It’s my pleasure to have you on my follower list as well.. 🙂

      Keep Smiling.. 🙂

    1. Hmm yeah.. I shouldn’t be crediting you at all for inspiring me.. 😉 All the credit goes to me and me only for learning from you.. I should go edit that post and kick out your name… 😛 😛 😛

      Even at the first thought, I know you would recognise sarcasm better than anyone else, my dear bro.. So I’m not having any second thoughts.. 😉 😛
