Greetings to all those literary worms out there! Myself, Mugdha Deshpande, a teenager who likes to do many things including writing stuff, travelling to new places, exploring the night sky, playing with paints and reading books.
Ever since I was a small girl, I have had this passion of turning feelings into words.
As every writer would say that she writes because she loves to express through words, I would no doubt say this; but at the same time, I would like to add that I write to string the beads among thoughts, words and ultimately people. Language is that thread which binds souls, connects hearts and in the end weaves a beautiful fabric of entities with similar or even different thoughts.
So let us toghether delve into the magic, power and magnificence of words!

The sun woke up stretching its wide arms.It spread its shine on the sea sprawled beneath. The pure rays of the rising sun fell onto the waves, blending them with a golden aura..The waters of the sea sparkled, and the sea too woke up for a new day..

It stood shining in the early summer sun,Tall and mighty and yet so beautifulThat tree with all its leaves sprawled,Was simply a sight to behold..Its old trunk bore no sign of its age,It looked as if it had a got a new life,With a pleasant smile, it embraced the warmth..Winter came with a chilly eye,Cold … Continue reading The Evergreen Diadem
