A Blog is Born

Diamond words strung along
In a pretty pattern make a song

Bigger words thrown astray
Mightier and more profound is an essay

Words can also be spoken by men
A play is what happens then

Sometimes the words can go on without close
This distinguished form is called the prose

I can talk of people and how they live
And that my friend, is called a narrative

Stories in short with words just a few
Are fables that gave Mr Aesop his due

Throw in some rhymes, and frills and lace
Then poetry stares right into your face

There are the sonnets, ballads, limericks and more
And dramas, their epilogues and tales of yore

But when you write something that into no category will fit
Just call it a blog and publish it! :-)

most of our blogs will not fit into any category and hence we have no other option other than to call it a Blog.
