Migrant

The winged explorer,The sky-migrant,The global gliderThe borderless flyerThe bird Tell me, Do you look backTo your first nest,To your first branch,To your first tree?Do you only fly onward,Do you only move forward,Never glance backward,Never sigh,Just fly high?Me too, a migrant,Between cities,Between tongues,Between thoughts,Between my originAnd final destination, Here and now, on earth,Only pursuing Peace isContinue reading “Migrant”

Grief

Grief is never brief.From it,There’s no relief.Let it shedFrom your heart,Autumn after autumn,Leaf after leaf,Tear after tear,Drop by drop.Bare eyes,Bare branch,Bare heart,Just continue to live,Dhak-dhak, dhak-dhak,Beat after beat…As you walk on,Mile after mile,Remember:Life is brief,Accept grief,With it reconcile,Try once more to smile.

What matters.

Doesn’t matterHow yesterdays were.Or tomorrows will be.Keeping well now-Just ‘now’ matters.The effort to gather Yourself once more,Rise to healing,Like never before.Remember:No half death, No half breath, No life,Without strife.To renew effort, Be determined, Do not withdraw,Live each moment well,In negativity,Please don’t dwell.Take a deep breath,Choose wellness,Choose strength,And choose health.In this moment,Live fully well.

So what now?

Let’s say,What you did dream,What you did chase,Was a slip between The cup and the lip.You may sulk, screamPine for what is not,Won’t let it just go,Oscillate to and fro-Pendulum-like, movingWithout progressing.As you observe,Surely you know,Back and forth, Forth and back,Ask your self,What in this lifeDo you really lack?

What’s better?

What’s better?A smile tugged Deep in your heart,A tickling hopeOr ‘having’ it all?What’s better?An aspiration,A sense of wonderOr feeling empty,Though seemingly possessing stuff, More and more,’having’ it all?From the mindsetThat ‘having’ it allIs happiness,You chase stuff to ‘own’.You never find Your purpose, your call.From the heart-setOf ‘pining’ for moreOr pining for What is not,You setContinue reading “What’s better?”

Have a laughterful day and a happy morning.

Laugh a lot more, May your laughter,Just nonstop pour,On laughter increase,Your score more.Let laughter,Reach your core,Like the rushing,Waves on the shore.Life’s not forever,It’s now or never,Genuine, laughter pureWill many ails cure.

A daily celebration of the Divine in you

The best way To observe The divine Is to be kind In thought, Word and deed.The best way to pray Is to share and care For all fellow beings And living beings Who cross our path Or happen To be around us.Share and care!

Eyes

Your eyes reveal KindnessSadnessMadnessLaughterAndGlitterOrBitterAndAngerKeennessMeannessCuriosnessBoredomOr just dumb,Desire or dream,Or shielding shrewdAnd outright rude,A guilt sheerOr fear clear?Truth sneaks out From your eyesAndReveals bothYour rise, your fall,Gives a glimpse Of your soul.Eyes know your ‘all’,Your wounds and wisdom,Your greed, your glare,They reflect it all.What stories silent,Sealed lips hide,Your eyes Whisper them all.
