a forced break

It has been a while now that I have written any blog post. In fact, I haven't written anything at all for quite some time. I have missed quite a few submission deadlines, some contests i wanted to participate in and even cancelled travel plans.The reason being this debilitating pain I've been struggling with for the past few months which won't let me focus on anything, let alone write or even sit at the computer for an extended period of time. Nothing serious, (I hope) and with time, perhaps, I\ll be back again...(at least I intend to)... to bother you all with my bad poetry but meanwhile i thought it only fair to let all the readers, visitors and the handful of my blog followers know why I have been playing truant lately. Thanks to all of you who are still visiting regularly. Please bear with me some more.


by this day's end
if I may come home whole, 
life might be good--
for now, I'm glad to see trees
and the light shining through them

I'm so sorry to hear you haven't been well, Sanjuktaa. I've missed your posts. Take good care of yourself, and hope you feel well enough to write again soon!

Oh, no! I'm sorry to hear about your pain. No wonder I'm not seeing you around that much. I know how it is to deal with pain. It can be depressing. I've dealt with that because of my back. I remember forcing myself to sit in front of the computer for the Feb. NaHaiWriMo.
I hope you get better soon. Try to think positive thoughts. Sending you healing light.... *hugs* Chrissi

I wish you the very best and pain-free days. I've been struggling to write myself, distracting by another kind of pain. You'll see it on my blog eventually. Everything becomes a poem, right?

So sorry to hear you are unwell and struggling, my friend. Healing happens in its own time, and so I hope you can take this time to be kind to yourself. Sending you lots of love and hugs for your journey.
