Writing Prompt: Million-dollar question

Why do I blog?

I blog for many reasons: 1. To come in contact with awesome people.

2. To learn what I don’t know.

3.To know about  different people all over the world.

4.To see what is common between us

Blogging has brought me closer to some awesome people I’d never have known otherwise. Imagine how wonderful it is to interact with some amazing people sitting right in front of my laptop. My few months of blogging was kind of disappointing,I didn’t know very many people and had no idea how to contact them. Then came my most delightful moment,Leslie whom I didn’t know started writing comments on my post, I was excited, I complained, no one reads my post,she told me to visit other blogs and write comments. I did that there was some response but nothing overwhelming.Then I discovered pingbacks, I was in touch with many of them and had a great time interacting with them.

I started reading all the posts, while doing so I hit Alienora’s Blog. It is one of the best ones I’ve read. When I read her posts I get the feeling how lucky I am to find her. I already am pleased to know different people from other parts of the World, Leslie from   Us ,Ali from Uk., Samir from India, Rainee from Australia, Su Lian from Japan. There are many from US and India. I know a few from Pakistan.

On my blogging journey I found out,we all think alike,we are kind, friendly and willing to help,whenever the need arises. What more can anyone want. I find contentment here.

You loved this green earth,

your smile exposed your inner happiness.

By joining the current of the universe.

You learned contentment,

That is why your heart was ready to steal.

This green earth belonged to you.

Today this indifferent earth and sky,

makes you look back.

your smile,  the happiness of viewing

they are singing the farewell song

leaving the village and its clump of trees.

You have painted that joy

and left it in my eyes.

I am alone today, I see with our eyes,

By staying in my heart you are enjoying it__

In the pupil of my eye you have

painted that charm .
