Celebrating 3000+ Wonderful followers!

Hello Everyone,

I am so happy to share that I have gained over 3000 readers following forgottenmeadows this morning. I started blogging about 3 years ago and I appreciate each and everyone of you who have supported me, from my very first post until now. I could not have asked for a better community or a better group of friends that I have gained in this journey.

Thank you so very much!

Much Love,

Neha

P.S: Although it is a great day of celebration, I am facing some woes from wordpress…I just noticed that it had somehow unfollowed  many of my close blogger friends…so if you haven’t seen me on your blog (via likes or comments) for a while, please drop me a message so I can follow again! I have already re-followed a handful!

Here are the rules:

* Mention the person who tagged you
* Answer the questions in full
* Don’t forget to tag up to ten other bloggers at the end

Here are the questions:

How did you get into blogging?

I got into blogging on a whim. I was not sure about what my blog would be, but I knew that I wanted to write. I had always enjoyed writing, and poetry is where I had found solace in words. This piece I wrote share what I hope my words will find: Let me find hope. So I wrote…Needless to say, I was overwhelmed by the love and support of this community…I got to interact with so many other wonderful, talented bloggers, some of whom I now call my friends, who gave me a sense of belonging in this blogging atmosphere. I may have gotten into blogging on a whim but I stayed in the blogging community because of the amazing experience I had (am having) with all of you, where I can share and read the words and photographs that come from the heart. I could not have asked for anything better.

What advice would you give to a blogger just starting out?

Blog about what matters to you, connect with the community, there is a whole new world waiting to connect with you and your work. 🙂

What would be your dream campaign?

My dream campaign would be to promote the power of imagination, for everyone to imagine and follow their own dreams to do what makes them happy. And to spread hope and kindness in all hearts.

Do you have a plan for your blog?

My plan is to continue writing and connecting with fellow bloggers, to learn their stories and share mine. 🙂

 

What do you think about rankings?

I am not too fond of rankings, I like to appreciate all work that is done with passion and from the heart.

 

Here are my nominees, please check out their blogs to view some amazing talent.

Writing to Freedom

Ashish-Vision

Lorrie Bowden

Ramblings from Jewels

Waking From a Dream

It felt like waking from a dream

of a forgotten paradise

that still sparkled in your eyes

like fallen stars

 

 

Stars that once stood high
Shining down upon a face
Uplifted in regard
Of a warm evening in paradise.

 

 

How does real life seem,
This waking compromise
Turning warmth into ice,
and abandoned cars—

Leaving me dry,
Without a trace
Of what I’ve now forgot—
I would fain discard
This breaking into rot!

 

But my satin eyes
wanted more of it
Tried closing my eyes
But the magic was over
& Ï could just sigh &
Think of it …

 

There will be dreams in our life
That we need to let go.
Because at times we do forget
As we develop so they grow.

 

Drifting in silence
Light softly breathing
filling each remembrance
without expectation

 

But, as your head turned you confirmed
That time indeed was flowing and
More than just a dream you held
my heart within your knowing

 

soft whispers in my mind
your loving voice a gentle reminder
wake and keep reaching for the stars
dreams are messages from your spirit

 

Touching the fabric of your sheets
Hoping to drive the sun light away

Praying to God everything is gonna be perfect
No more troubles, just colourful blooms
Atleast that’s what dreamland showed
Atleast that’s what you want.

 

 

remember in the softness of this early
dawn: although things are what they are
they may also be what they seem, listen
and recall the whispers from your dream

 

as the dark casts its final shadow
the light bends its knees for tomorrow
as the hidden dream mingles to the flow
it takes the scene all its own
and ended an erratic show

 

close your eyes and imagine
shadows dancing in the rain
ghosts of the past
dreams of tomorrow

 

Restless yet not awake,
Storms pulling me
Away from love we make.
Need an anchor, land~
Less of stars ☆¤☆
More of you.♡
