Your time, your day

Your day Your timeDon’t waste itAway, away, away,Be happy, Say happy,Do happy.Life’s happening,With it, justSwing and sway,It’s your time, Your day.Do what You deniedFor yourself Yesterday;You said ‘later’ Your vague wish,Make it true, Make it come Your way! Don’t leave it Until later,Into a future ‘someday’,You said ‘tomorrow’,Your ‘Tomorrow’ Has come today, Well have itContinue reading “Your time, your day”

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.

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”

Dualities of Life

When you are in a somber mood, meditate on these words. Just sit thinking of the unexpected in life that throws us out of gear. In your thoughts, reflect on how often we are imbalanced in our understanding of the dualities of life. We seem to only want the good, the happy, the wellness/the healthy,Continue reading “Dualities of Life”

Good Morning

The day has dawnedOnce more reflectOn your intent,If you want to feelLight and content.Match intent With values high,Align them with words And realise them In efforts and deeds.Once more reflectOn your intent,If you want to feel Light and content.Once more feelThe quality Of the wordsOn your tongue.Taste their truth,Savour their flavour.Some don’t need To beContinue reading “Good Morning”

Don’t feel like

If you don’t feel like Starting the day, Your chores and duties Confuse and overwhelm you, The sigh is longer And heavier than usual,Then sip your coffee slower, Remind yourself,’I choose to be braver’Breathe and feel The air expelled, Close your eyes And imagine The clouds moving,The day tooWill glide through.You will lose some,Win oneContinue reading “Don’t feel like”

In between silences

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

I walk

I walk. Sometimes, I walk away From an uninvited Walk-in visiting memory, Sometimes, I walk To reach nowhere, But to walk away From the need To reach Somewhere. 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”

COME, SEPTEMBER!

Bring some melodyLessen the cacophonyCome,September,Heal the ailingBrighten the paling.String hearts together,Make tempers milder,Come,September,Let’s hear melodies,Begin soothing Heavy, hurtful memories.Come, September,Remind us our cheerAnd patienceAnd put our livesBack in forward gear.

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’.

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.”
