For a host, a guest is always a ghost
If he has come, the host becomes dumb.
But still he has to talk, or else the guest starts off about his folk!
He is not liked, because of his terrible sight;
Today, the day is sunny, and the guest who has come is funny;
He has a long nose and small eyes that look like flies.
His old fashioned coat, looks like a big boat,
His large pants make you visualize military camps
He is so fat, that on the chair he sat, mewed like a cat!
He must have sat on the large armchair with the help of a mare!
Or the table would have made him able!!
He eats almost everything, till he goes in the house is left with nothing!
He sleeps so soundly on the bed, as if he is dead,
He seems alive only because he snores so loudly that it trembles the doors!
Don’t mind, I promise if I become a guest,
I won’t be a ghost to the host.
I love my guests the most,
And never tell them “Get lost”!!

Yes, I know this poem seems a bit not too promising. Two days, since I created my blog, I was wondering about what to write for the first post. There were a few good ideas and I admit some even better than this. But this poem of mine seemed the most special one because this is the first one I ever wrote. It's a bit childish but then, when it was written, I was a child!! I am reproducing the poem “as it WAS” without any editions....I hope this won't be taken as a loss at decision making, but as a profound attachment with my first write up!!

Anyway, don't be disappointed by the first post...there is a lot more to come, not only poems but all that I want share with the ones who take time to go through posts of a beginner like me. I will try to devote some time to this blog amidst the so called busy schedule of mine. If I say writing is my life, it's absolutely an exaggeration. But I will add that it’s my passion for sure. I am bad at expressing ‘all I want’ through speech. Whenever I am very happy or very sad, the first thing that comes to my mind is WRITING!! Be it a thank you or sorry, a smile or scorn, criticism or cynicism, love or friendship, for me, writing is the best option!

And one more thing, the name for this blog “ABHIVYAKTI” has been taken from an incident of my life I always wanted to forget. But recently, I realized that “NOTHING CAN BE SO BAD THAT IT CAN’T BE WORSE”. And hence, I have stopped running away from things that scare me...Now I embrace them! I do love the name – ABHIVYAKTI.....

They say I am a person of ‘TOO MANY WORDS’. I work for a newspaper and the editor is tired of making me get rid of my prolixity! I thought maybe I should find a place where I can express myself as I want to and what would have been a better option than a blog? Still I’ll try to express in as few words as I can! (As if I haven’t written a lot in this post itself!!)
