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”

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.

For some of us

For some of usFrom this day, today,This world will never be The same again.A few words unsaid,A few tears unshed,Will forever remain.For some of us now on,A hollow feeling,An emptiness,A sense of loss,A long, quiet silence,Will forever remain.This world will never be The same again.To those ‘some of us’Whose hearts have broken,I say, let usContinue reading “For some of us”

Who are you?

What are you? You are your mind, You heart, body, soul. You are the ‘are’ Not yet the ‘were’.So you are:The present, The breathing ‘you’. You are the time you have left with you. So when you ‘do’ something, With your body,mind, heart and soul, You actually give yourself whole.To what?That you decide.How you dedicateContinue reading “Who are you?”

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.

Happy Republic Day India!

May we move forward, Stronger,surer,together.May we move forward,To progress and prosper.May our diversityBring us strength greater, Make our minds grow richer,May we stride with pride,Holding hands of each other.

This too shall heal

The fact of impermanence We ought to hold Onto closely, Especially awarefully,Consciously, every day.Impermanence in lifeDoes remind usThat injuries of the heart,body and mind Do not hurt forever.This new injuryFeels heavy right now,Unbearable somehow,But its not permanent,Soon it will heal.Always rememberWe are all temporary, What happens to usDoes end, does pass,And so shall we.

When you laugh

When you laugh,Your heart sings,Your laughter soundsLike a bell that rings,Your soul sighsAnd your mind heals,How light it feels!Like a ray,You spread joyMile to mile,When you smile😊.Smile and laugh more,Increase your Joy score,Hope you aren’t being A grumpy bore!

A thorn…

If a thorn pricked,Hurt and bled you terribly,Would you intentionally Put yourself through That prick again? Then why let a memoryOf a day bygone A survived, bad, Injurious experience, Revisit, re-prick,Rehurt you repeatedly?Let go the past,Protect your heart,From hurting.Heal yourself:Replace the thorn,By revisiting Re-touching the petalsOf only the best Bygone moments.Let go gloom,May your heartContinue reading “A thorn…”

Daily

Days pass byLife goes on.What seems most important now, in retrospect, may or may not be of that much essence, that much consequence. For every ‘most important thing’ there is an option.Train your mind to dwell on Option B as seriously as Option A.Musts and shoulds also need to be let gone.Every moment is aContinue reading “Daily”

Brought nothing, lost nothing

Born empty handed, Leave empty-handed. Live with love and light. When here we landed,Weren’t you and me,Both born empty-handed?Then let’s live life,Without hate and strife,Unassuming and light,Choosing love: Not might over right,Decide none to exploit.Lets feel from The depths of our heart,And reach great heightsThrough our open, Un-burdened, mind,Always to ourself remind:To keep our thoughts,Continue reading “Brought nothing, lost nothing”
