I really like to disappear now a days. And let this be known to you, I’m not one of the Horsemen. *Hehe*
Anyways, looking through my Facebook timeline I found an old poem written by me back in 2011. Yes, it has been 6 years and I had totally forgotten about it. I liked it’s ending so shared it on my ‘Words of Aqua‘ blog.

Thanks for being here,
Me and my work can easily be found on ‘HelloPoetry‘ now. If you want to take a look
do visit the site, it has got many good poets/writers there.
Or you can just type “Ali Qureshi Poet” or “Ali Qureshi Poems” in your google search box to find my work there.
I know I love long and boring post scripts. I hope you don’t mind, if you’re still reading that is!
For I have reached a place where I can post once in every short a while. I might not be posting as much as I have posted before and you might think that’s just too bad as I know you were really looking forward to read some more enlightening posts from me.
Anyways, I have scheduled a poem (around 8 hours from now) on my other blog so do read it when you have the time.
Thanks and keep on reading,
As I’ll be moving to another city in the next few days so might not be active as much.
I leave you with this Haiku:
We Will Meet Again!
Thanks for your tuning in,
I’m dropping by to give you all some updates:
1. Have been having these long talks and debates with fellow writers (professionals and amateurs) over what’s really good and what is not (after reading some written material of mine or theirs).
It all boils down to a few phrases:
‘I think’ or
‘In my opinion’ or
‘I’d prefer it to be like this’.
The point is to never go in guns blazing and say:
“There’s a grammatical error.”
And later come to know it is just one’s preference.
I always try to ask the writer/author of a text, if I think there is something not very usual among what they have written, by saying:
“You meant to write that, yes?” and such.
If there’s a much better way to convey your doubt(s) at what someone else wrote, which might not go with you, please do share.
2. One of my pieces (poem) got mentioned earlier today in a blog post.
Thankful to the blogger who felt the need to mention it as something she prefers others must read!
I’ll leave you with these words:
“Never take a literary person lightly;
each of us writes for our own reasons and influences.”
Recently, I found out that one of my friends, from school days, have decided to start blogging on WordPress. It is really nice to see someone from one’s actual life to get involved in the same things one does. It is a way of supporting and being supported all at once.
Adding to that, another piece of my work “Delusions or Reality?” was published in my other blog and have received lots of likes, yet I hope someone will let me know how my work is really.
You all might say: “Getting likes is not enough for you?”
I think, getting greedy aren’t I?
Thanks for all your support,
