Good morning

May all go well today.May troubles melt away.Wish you a bounceIn your step, Happy and childlike,May your heart sway.May the day be simpleMake you just smile,And show your dimple.

Time

Spend your time well.It’s the only thingWe have no clueWhen it will be over.Think about how muchWe need to push ourself To accomplish today.Your journey and mine,Is like a sip of wine,Time gulps us over,May it go slower.We live the distance, From presenceTo absence.We breathe the distance,From soundTo silence.We traverse the distance,Our journey together,Some dayContinue reading “Time”

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.

Happy Humming Morning!

TodayWelcome thoughtsOf hope and peace,Negative thoughtsJust release.Allow not DisappointmentTo stay too long,Bring back hope Invite love warmlyAnd insist laughterAlong to accompany.Its your heart Your mind, your soulYour choice to control.As hope brings A smile along,Hum a song,Hum a happy song.Happy Humming Morning!

Re-try, re-fly

In this steep flight, You tried, you fell.At you, the world Will love to yell’Fail fail fail’.To your SelfYou will tell:I will perch a while,Then re-fly, And aspire A higher sky.Life is a vast ocean,I remain resoluteI am far above All this negativity And fearful commotion.I have succeeded In a million things, Done everytime betterInContinue reading “Re-try, re-fly”

Post pandemic do’s and don’ts

Do not ask folksHow they are,They may not Want to recallMany a scar.Say,’Good to see you’,I’m here to help you.Do not presume All’s well,Maybe they choseOn issuesNot to dwell.Say,’Whatever it is, May you heal, It will take time,Want some ice waterWith a squash of lime?Do not share How awesome Your staycation was,Some have had toContinue reading “Post pandemic do’s and don’ts”

In between silences

In between silences,A few words Fly in,Birds from farawaySkies of ideas,Carrying a new story,In sheer poetry.

Anticipation

Step out With a feelingOf anticipation.Do resolveTo learn fromBoth experiences,Bitter and sweet,The life lesson:Duality is the norm,And co-existence is To go with the flow,Or choose to decideYour own journey,And harder your boatYou must row. Continually emerge Stronger and evolve.Embrace a pinch Of true dynamismRemember wrapped inside the nagging problem,Hides the solution.

Compassion

Halt a moment,Stop! Save a child,Listen to the lament,Life for love is meant,Rise above discontent,Revise your intent,And choose to be,The One to helpTo nurture and care, And let each of usTo the ‘other’Be truly’God-sent’.

Reflect calmly to find your balance

Meditate to findThe balanceBe mindfulOf how you feelKeep your mind Very still.Meditate to de-stress,To worries release,To realign,Receive peaceAnd reconnectWith the Divine.

Draw the line.

Life is not about just having. Life is more about living. Life is more about experiencing rather than accumulating. Money is no doubt very essential for enabling empowerment. There are no two things about it. But to live less in order to earn more and just have more at the cost of too much stressContinue reading “Draw the line.”

One day at a time

When in life,There’s no rhythmThere’s no rhymeNo laughters chime,A tear glistensYou can’t even sigh,Your breath feels muffledEach time you inhaledIt felt like an effortAnd you struggled,At that juncture,When every nerveYou feel will rupture,Just be in silent pleaReally pray to the Divineand sense the silenceAnd hear the quiet,Say to self,One day, at a time.

The tabula rasa state of mind

I love my mind,In the ‘tabula rasa’state.I like it:My ‘re-energise’ phase,From ‘doing’ to just ‘being’. I reflect, read more. I love my mind,Uncrowded, on ‘rewind’I refill the soul, the heart, the mind.Reading other’s voicesand fresh new words,I imagine meFly high Like a bird,To a new world. It is essentialTo be vacant, A pre requisite ToContinue reading “The tabula rasa state of mind”

A day comes

A day comesWhen what mattered,You must let go.You just know,You give up.It is the day You are justa little less aliveBut you survive.Like the cat’s last lonely walkaround the street,In extreme heat.Losing hope,To find a biteTo chew, to eat.Both you and the catSo much alike,Until next dawn,Both just survive.Will the catWithout the hat,Not named Tom,NorContinue reading “A day comes”

Pause. Ponder. Lift yourself higher.

Getting older is inevitable. But growing older is slightly different, because when you grow older, you don’t lose the sense of humor, the ability to wonder, feel the curiosity and the sense of enthusiasm as well as the sense of marvel. Are you growing older or getting old? It is a decision. Your decision. Isn’tContinue reading “Pause. Ponder. Lift yourself higher.”

Thank you Michelle, for being so YOU

We slip into despair-  into tears,  into fire,  into deep ocean. And a Youtube video Reaches. Michelle’s reminder falls into our soul Like sundrops  Helps us gather ourself, Lifts us, shifts us We watch bygones, Like a dead, Dried leaf strewn, Breezes away from the Tree, May we release dry Dis-serving thoughts Free.

Mommy muses…

On the purple couchShe does belong,And she sings along,Between numbers divine-Ruth B’s ‘Lost boy’ She plays again,And humming Trampoline,By amazing Shaed and Zayn,My princess shifts,In the next moment,Taylor Swift’sMelody drifts. Outdoors, the VirusCovid 19 corpses pile,Indoors 24 by 7, Locked down we copeTo keep alive hope,Try home remedies so naive,Praying they do survive,Days elapsed moreContinue reading “Mommy muses…”
