Guest Post – Chandri Asnani

Day Five for our poetry guest posts here at Writing and Works and today sees Chandni Asnani joining us. Her work can be found at her blog The Twilight Firefly.


Hii people, I’m Chandni Asnani. I live in Indore, India and I’m currently pursuing B.Sc in Computer Science from the same city. I’ve always been passionate about writing and it’s almost been 10 years now that I started writing.

It was like, I had no idea, no clue if I had any such kind of talent in me, I was just like any other normal girl, but that one day changed my life. I consider that particular day as the turning point, that one day just made me what I am today!

It was one day when I was in class 4, my English teacher told me to write a poetry for the school magazine as I was good at her subject. So, I went home and suddenly thought that I should try writing something by myself. And yeah, with Mumma’s help, I was able to write a few lines, pretty childish, but they were still okay! 🙂

And after that, I started enjoying it, those lines, anyhow making words rhyme, that art, and expressing myself in the least words possible, that choosing any random topic and writing whatever comes! You won’t believe I’ve written on every stupid topic from parrot, doggies, horses, birds, to dolls and still others I don’t even remember! Haha, how I hate opening that wretched diary I used to love writing into when I was a kid! 😛

I’m thankful to everyone, my parents, my school teachers, my school principal and my friends, they’ve always encouraged me to write more and more. I was even known as the ‘Miss Poet’ of my school!

Now, coming to why I enjoy writing! It is because of writing that I’m relieved from half the tensions cause it helps me forget every damn thing and helps me come back to normal! I can’t survive without writing. Writing marks my existance, writing is life, writing is love, writing is the ultimate satisfaction, writing is the food for my hungry soul!

And poetry is something that I find really appealing, I always admire the rhymes, the hidden meanings behind words, the emotions that one can convey in those limited words is inexplicable! I love writing poems! 🙂

What inspires me to write? There are several things which urge the writer inside me to come out and do the magic! The first one is situations, and my feelings! Every emotion makes me write, be it sadness, depression, jealousy, happiness, anger, frustration, or whatever else. I can’t stop myself. The emotion has to anyhow come out on the paper!

The next thing is appreciation. Whenever I’m praised for my work, it boosts up my confidence, my faith in my ability. Another thing is Deadlines! I don’t know how, but deadlines bring out the best in me.

Here’s a recent poem written by me. It describes various types of Art.


Art is an expression,
A source of eternal elation.
An imprint of your thoughts,
The voice of a gloomy heart!

Music is a rhythm,
The rhythm of a heartbeat.
Mesmerizing, hypnotising!
Heeling the deepest wounds,
Adding colours of love,
Pacifying the soul!
It’s a fiery passion,
A rejuvenation!

Dance is an echo,
The echo of a broken heart.
Unspoken words,
Voicing dormant desires,
Depicting every emotion,
Forgetting all sorrows,
Teleporting you to a world,
A world full of bliss!

Poetry is the utterance,
The utterance of a voice,
Long suppressed!
Words set ablaze,
Words so powerful,
Melting a heart of stone!
Like a caged bird set free,
To conquer the blue skies!

Art is creativity,
A love so pure,
A zeal so true!
Art is the celebration,
The celebration of being YOU!

Yeah, I do know the fact that I’m just a beginner right now, there are sooo many things I don’t know about, sooo much still left to discover, to improve, I don’t even write that good and I don’t know if I even have a particular writing style, but I hope one day I’ll be able to write like all of you wonderful people. I’m learning something new everyday, thanks to you all and thanks to WordPress!

    This was cool! The last line was so deep, I felt chills down my spine(the positive chills just so you know)
    Well I seem to differ when u say that dance is an echo of a broken heart! Dance is also to express bliss too!
    Just so u know … I m not a dancer ( okay, I am a bathroom dancer) but I just felt that dance isn’t just for broken hearts!
    Also in the stanza of songs .. There’s a typo, it’s supposed to be healing instead of heeling … I guess … 🙂
    Any ways, the poem was great! Especially the last line

  2. Lovely observations Chandni and such a feeling of celebration in the freedom of your style! I really enjoyed your poem. Best wishes. Anna x
