Think how

In the cycle of NatureIn life and deathEven dry dying leavesAdd colour to Nature In their FallIn their last seasonThey give us soulsBeauty for a reason:Every breath bringsThe reminder,Do something worthwhileMake someone smile,Perhaps is the lesson.

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.

When for no reason

Sometimes for no obvious Or explicable reason, You may just feel Your heart is heavier, Your mood is low, Your reflexes are slow.Usually around this time,Same day, same time,In the past, You have faced,A devastating setback.The heart has not forgotten,The mind has not overcome,But you have moved on.At such moments,It helps to do Pranayam.Meditate.Be gentleContinue reading “When for no reason”

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.

Good Morning

As you go About your chore,And still have To finish many more,Hold thankfulness,Remember many yearnFor this normal-ness.May peace and calm pour,In your heart-core.May good luck knockAt your life’s door.Have a blissful morning,And a very lucky day.

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.

Find joy today

Connect with Nature,Find joy In clouds taking On shapes,moving, changing.Find danceIn leaves and flowers swaying.Find tunes and songs,In birds chirping And streams gurgling And the breeze whooshing.Find joy.Sigh out worry,Breathe in joy.Have a day filled With joyful moments.

On this day

Make peace,Decide to deliver The promise.With ease,Say what matters,Let go grudges,Just release.Choose to cherishThe choice of easeThe choice of peaceThe choice of releaseChoose.Have an easy day.Good Morning.

Being just me

No I didn’t prioritize Folding clothesCookingHouse keeping.I wrote verses.My apologiesFor fresh fruit,Salad mealsAnd just washedUnfolded, unironedClothes.I deliberatedOver lyrics,Rhythm, rhymesAnd word tricks.To sweetly suggest Being a woman I can multi-taskComes with a risk:I need my rest, My ‘me-time’,To hum my rhyme.What I can,What I will,What I won’tI decide,You don’t.

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.

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.

Sometimes I walk Away from expectations Unreasonable, stifling. I walk Miles and miles. Sometimes I walk To sort out My own journey, Meet my thoughts halfway, QuestionContinue reading “I walk”

Draw the line.

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.”
