    Books To Read If You Love Insta-Poetry ✨

    Hey there and welcome back to Readably Yours! Today, we’re talking about Insta-poetry and my absolute obsession with it. Insta-poetry is a form of short-form poetry which is quite popular on social media platforms like Instagram or Twitter, poetry that is associated with digital culture and has transformed to align with the ever-changing attention span of people that grows shorter by the day. In fact, insta-poetry has contributed to the sudden rise in poetry readership, especially given that it feels exceedingly relevant to young adults on the gram. The poetry is accessible and relatable, very brief and gets a lot of engagement. Although, this form of poetry has faced a…

    Stillness in a Restless World

    How difficult could it be to embrace 07 minutes of stillness on a Sunday morning? Fearfully difficult. 07 minutes of thoughts cascading into my head, beating against my skull. 07 minutes of my eyes fluttering in vain, anxiously waiting to be unsealed. 07 minutes of listening to the sounds of nature woven into humanly sounds. 07 minutes of unfocused breathing, guided in conformity with the screeches of my ceiling fan. Maybe, just maybe, I should stick to exploring the world with my eyes open and brain clamoring. Maybe, it’s easier to live that way, unsheltered and oblivious. Read my previous Daily Poems here: And get ready to dive into the…

    Little Things | Daily Poetry

    There’s something so conflictingly amusing About the small things in life – The things that are so simple and yet modestly extraordinary. A warm cup of coffee during the cozy winters, A smile from a random stranger you met on the train, Drops of dew dancing on the leaves, Fresh rain and the heavenly smell of petrichor, Gentle waves of wind carrying echoes of hushed secrets, Adults laughing somewhere in the midst of a tiring day, Feeling at peace among a cacophony of noise and chaos, The hug of a friend releasing so many troubling thoughts in your head. But do we ever take a pause to cherish these little…

    Choosing Your Tribe: The Kind of Friends You Need!

    So last night, @alwaysaugst_medic and me had an in-dept discussion about how we are definitely the average of the people that we usually surround ourselves with. We develop the habits and characteristics that our friends empower within themselves. And so, it’s really important for you to find a community of people who are supportive and wish the best for you. People who want to see you grow. Friends and family who are non-judgmental about the choices you make and the things that you decide to prioritize at certain stages in your life. All in all, if you’re somebody who’s still building their tribe, you would do so much better in…

    Innocence Unleashed | Daily Poetry

    Prompt: (Skyler’s Prompts) What’s an identity you’ve had since childhood? Innocence Unleashed. What was I like as a child – Some days docile, some days wild. Always screaming for what I felt was right, Tiny girl in pigtails, always shining bright. Could write through the noon, and read through the night, Some days she’d growl – but don’t worry, she didn’t bite. Would cry for tubs of ice cream, freezing and cold, Always lacked patience, couldn’t wait to grow old. A two-foot long kid, thinking she could scare, Everyone around her, with the fierceness of her stare. Dancing through the halls, she’d sing a little song, And push through academics, with…

    Breaking The Chains of Sacrifice | Daily Poetry

    In the past, simply missing one day of a challenge would often demotivate me to the point of giving up. However, this year of 2024, I’ve chosen to embrace imperfection. Which means, I will constantly remind myself (through actions) that a single missed event won’t determine my overall success. So, I’m pushing forward in the NaPoWriMo challenge, knowing that I have the opportunity to make up for Day 6 at a later point in time. Just a tiny note to self 🙂 Prompt:  Write a poem about personal sacrifices and the complex emotions that come with making them. In this tiny world, where ideas constantly evolve and bloom, We puny little…
