Positive Cookies is on YouTube!

It has been a long gap.
Diwali is over since long and still I could not come to blogger for a post. I do miss writing on this platform. That is why, I am back this Saturday. 
I am here to share what I was upto for the last month and a half in my blogger absence.
As I love exploring new things, this year my goal was to start a YouTube channel. I like reading inspiring quotes and sharing them.
Some of you might remember my debut at A to Z Challenge was also about sharing quotes. I shared my favorite quotes from popular and favorite books.
I liked the warm response that "quotes from books" feature received.
This response made me explore new medium - YouTube.
Yes, I have created a channel named Positive Cookies and it has 6 videos so far.
This past month I leaned a lot of new things about this vast and highly popular network. It is exciting to start something new. This was another wish on my 2018 wish list. I am glad that it has started. 
Here is the logo of my channel.


Light up because it is Diwali!

Diwali is my favorite festival and Yamini MacLean has written a beautiful post about Diwali. I am sharing photo response - A diya.
Here is wishing everyone a lots of love, health and prosperity on this auspicious occasion of Diwali.
Do visit the post MenoFest... Shine a Little Light!!! Also, spread light and illuminate your posts with  photos of lamps or candles.

Sound of Autumn

Happy Wednesday!
Today, I have some free time in the morning. That is why, I decided to write a quick haiku response. This post is in response to haiku prompt on Autumn theme by Chèvrefeuille at Haiku Kai.
In my previous post I welcomed the beautiful season.
For this post the writing prompt is "Autumn's Voice".

rustling of the leaves and the birds chirping on trees music to my ears
I hope you all are having a nice week. See you soon!

Welcome Autumn!

This haiku is in response to theme 'autumn' by Chèvrefeuille at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai.

I had to take little break from my blogging (again!). It just so happens that I announce my come back and have to skip blogging following days.

I miss writing and reading blog posts so much. I do not use app for writing my blog post. So, the only thing remains is my laptop. It was behaving a little odd for a few days.

I had to search a lot for a correct fix for 2-3 days. Everything is back to normal now.

This is my first post in November. Here is my haiku welcoming autumn.

I hope you will like it.

Crisp, colored leaves
Covering the ground and streets
A gentle wind sweeps

 I will get busy again at home! We have a festival coming up. It is 'Diwali'. It is a festival of lights. Very auspicious festival! This is just to inform the reason behind my absence from blogging for coming days.

Wish you all a very Happy Diwali (even if you will celebrate it or not).

Have a nice weekend!

Haiku on dreams

Monday Greetings everyone!

I had a really wonderful weekend. It was all thanks to wonderful blogger community.

Today, I am writing a haiku on one word prompt DREAMS.

One of my favorite fact about dreams is that even animals dream. Isn't it fascinating?

Let me share the haiku now.

imaginary, with hint of reality dreams wake me up

Have a nice week ahead. Or better, have a dreamy week!
See you all soon.

Haiku on waves

Saturday Motivation.

Today, I found out that Kristjaan Panneman at CARPE DIEM HAIKU KAI has started a new feature. He will be introducing some unknown Haiku poets in the history.

I think it is a wonderful initiative. I am looking forward to upcoming posts to really gain some knowledge in haiku poetry and history.

Please go check out the post at : Carpe Diem's Leafless Tree #1 introduction "beautiful waves"

The reason for this introduction is - I'm submitting a haiku response for this wonderful "Haiku Kai" community for the first time.

I wish everyone a very happy weekend. Have a nice time!

cold, bubbly often frothy waves moving forward leave ripples embossed

Haiku on weather

Friday is here!

The weather is slightly cold since it is raining in my part of the world. It has been just a few days without the rains and it has started again. 
Weather is really unpredictable these days. The October heat is ruling the afternoons and rains in the evening. 
This odd weather is my theme for haiku of the day - 

Always uncertain, moody Weather never tells... next moves in advance!
Today my garden will be more happy...drenched...a surprise visit by rain! :)
I wish everyone a very happy weekend.
Please do share your encounters with this moody weather. I would love to read them all.

Welcome back to me!

I am back!
Why am I announcing this? 
My last blog post was a haiku (rain) published in September. It was a month ago.  The reason I am announcing my presence is to bring your notice that - 
"I did not publish anything for last 30 days or more."
Here is my account of all the things that went right/ wrong in the past month (just in terms of blogging!)
Daily Blogging:  Last month, I decided to post one blog post every day. I was very sure of doing this because I had a theme planned as a challenge for myself.
Daily Haiku:  Haiku writing was something I discovered accidentally while surfing blog world. I thought this micro poetry writing was exciting. It was also challenging to express the ideas in few words and three-line 5-7-5 syllable formats.
How did I do? I would rate myself a 6 out of 10 for this question.
•    First of all, I could post for only two weeks  •    I wrote exactly nine haiku posts
One of the most important reasons I could not post lately is because of the incons…

Haiku - rain

Monday greetings everyone!
I hope everyone had a nice weekend. I am in the third week of writing haiku a day. I must confess that I have not been writing like EVERY day. But, I am trying to be consistent with my blogging.
The one word prompt that I have decided is 'rain'.

September is officially the last month of the rainy season. Hence, the one word prompt popped in my head.

Here is my haiku -

As usual the arrangement is 5-7-5 syllables in three lines.

this monsoon season
my paper boat is ready
for the backyard pond

Do share your rain memories or poems with me in comments.

I wish you all a wonderful week ahead.
