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”

How about…

How about…Smiling Without any reason today?How about…Singing With(out) tune today?How about…Joking and laughingOn yourself today?How about…Giving up a ‘must do’ today?How about…Facing towards the Sun and simply being happy today?

A beginner’s mind

I wish you, An idea new.I wish you,A beginner’s mind,No past to rewind.May your heart,Hold anticipation,And affirmation.May your eyes,Find more possibilities,Than see otherwise.Go ahead this week,Hopeful, not meek,Follow your dreamDoubt-free, Go, seek!I wish you smile,As you walk,Mile after mile,With a spring, In your feet. May soft petals be underneath your feet now and always.

Half full

Half full and fuller,Very cool and cooler,May your riches multiply,May your effort intensifyNot a fool or a loser,Be in gratitude forever,A heart brimming overWith hope and loveFlowing clear,Trust in yourselfStronger,Faith in yourself deeper,May blessings On you always shower,May Grace be Your invincible power.

I’m not sure

I’m not sure What love is,But I know Kindness is pure.In the end,What changes the story, What matters totally,Is how well you treatThe one you claim to loveIn thought, word & deed.

Heard?

Hush,Heard the whisper?A sound softer,But so much sweeter?Hush,Heard the whisper?A sound quieter,Yet so much truer?Hush,Heard the whisper?A sound fainter,Yet so much wiser?Hush,Hear the whisper:A sound, a murmur,That’s Softer,Clearer, Fainter,Sweeter,Truer,Wiser.Listen to your heart’s whispers today.

A morning wish

Temporal time ticks,We move, as it kicks.Breeze in the hair,We pick a warm wear.Neither time,Nor breeze,Do we see,But one shows us,Our lifetime limit,The other shows us,What’s it to be free.Use temporal time well,But use leisure better.Enjoy the breeze, The outdoors and The good weather.May there be a zing, Right under your wing,As you follow dreams,AndContinue reading “A morning wish”

Enter November!

The month eleventh,Cool in the desert,Cold elsewhere,Freezing minus ten,Speeding to year-end.Glance back perhapsThe time did lapse,Memories we made,Some of laughters Some of regrets.We lost some, We found some,People gone, People come.Thanksgiving month,Gratitude to hold,Tomorrows to behold,With fervour,Enter November,Let’s thank all those,We forgot to remember.

Sundays

Sundays, lovely sundays, No rushing to work,No hopping on buses, Or catching trains, Or missing subways.No early wake up call,No hurry, no haste at all,No alarms ringing,Lazy waking, And lazier rising.Leisure short and sweet,Sunday’s a treat!But this Sunday,Get busy,Get ready,Decorate the home Bright, all lit.Favourite foods cooking,Special savories Yummy, spicy and crunching,On Diwali sweetsDon’t yetContinue reading “Sundays”
