Embracing Solitude

 In solitude she dances, graceful and free,

A girl who's alone, yet blissful is she.

With radiant smile, her spirit takes flight,

Embracing the beauty of her own inner light.

Her laughter echoes through the silent air,

No company needed, she's content to bear.

With every step she takes, a world unfolds,

In her solitary realm, she finds treasures untold.

Her heart, a sanctuary of tranquil peace,

She weaves her dreams like a tapestry release.

For in her solitude, she's never truly alone,

For nature's symphony and her soul are as one.

In her own company, she discovers her worth,

Embracing solitude's gifts, she finds rebirth.

Alone, yet happy, she dances with delight,

A girl who has found solace in her own beautiful sight.

Echoes of absence


Echoes of absence, 
sorrow's cruel art, 
aching voids remind me of your depart.

Solitude's Embrace

In solitude's embrace,
I find my inner peace,
where my soul dances freely,
and worries find release.

Life Update | Three Makes Baby

WOW! It's been 3 years since I have updated this space. I used to hop on over here to read a few of my favorite bloggers but never left my footprints via comments. Without further ado, let me share my life update. 

The title of this post might seem out of the line or odd to you but the one who has or is living with the pangs of infertility would understand it. 

I am not going to show you the harsh face of infertility and how it makes or breaks relationships in this post but share how the years of struggle led to a baby. Yes! I am a mother of a toddler who is now 2. My baby made me a mom on 3 March 2020. 

The title is inspired by the book Three Makes Baby: How to Parent Your Donor-Conceived Child by Jana Rupnow. I haven't read it yet but the title is intriguing for the ones who have become parents via donor eggs/sperms and who are unfamiliar with Donor conception.

I was diagnosed with Premature Menopause which I have explained in this post -  Life With Premature Menopause on my other blog - Aai & Baby V dedicated to infertility, motherhood, and parenting.

I had shared a post of my journal entry  - Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish back in 2017 in which I had mentioned about infertility is affecting my mental health. 

I have Premature Menopause or Primary Ovarian Insufficiency which meant I had only a few eggs which may or may not be healthy. So my doctors' advice was to use donor eggs. It took me a whole year to accept this reality and when it was absorbed thoroughly I was ready - mentally, emotionally and physically which led to the path of IVF. 

Using donor eggs meant my baby does not share my genes but does that mean I am not his mother? Absolutely no! Even science defines me as his biological mother.  You can read all about my Donor Egg - IVF in this post in which I have opened up about my fear, anxiety. I can talk a lot on this topic but I want to keep this short and subtle. 

Ending this post by sharing photos ( I love taking photos, they are perfect keepsakes) and with the hope to come here often and sticking to what Anne Frank says on writing which is my blog description.

A teardrop fell on my cheek
(after a long time)
When I read you

As it traversed further down
Our conversations came alive
(Historic for us)

Why? This "why" pesters me
We shouldn't have met?!
(I never would've felt "love", then)

The teardrop fell down
Unanswered my question
Leaving me forlorn
Longing for you, forever
