Melodiously happy


She wears sunshine like a cloak
Dazzling in her sheen n brightness
Stars in her eyes
Which lend a sparkling ✨ twinkle
Brilliance in her smile dazzling one n all
Moon sits on her head like a white crown
Enveloping her in its beautiful peaceful soft brilliance
The meadows whisper to her
Inviting her to walk in their midst
The flowers wink ๐Ÿ˜‰ at her mischievously
O’ gentle one
Come here n stay in our midst
She gives a naughty smile
N wanders off
To destinations n paths unknown

Death came knocking

Death came knocking
I stood at my window
Looking out
Death said come with me
It’s time
I looked at him long n hard
He said u were given enough time
What did u do with it
I looked at him closely
N wondered
What did I do
Was I ever there for someone
Did I help people in my lifetime
My life flashed by me
In a spontaneous moment
Some wanted more time
N some went knocking at the door of death
N ended their young lives
Value each moment
Some want to live
N r not given the opportunity
N some go away too soon-

Self Acceptance

So many untimely young deaths due to suicide n depression. What is the cause of it.. Have we set very high standards of self acceptance... Are people so lonely that they do not share their fears n short comings with even their closest friends... where  are We emerging as a society ... Are we truly Humane ... do we have time for people when they truly need us.....what do we have to prove to anyone... Shouldn’t we teach them to accept themselves n value as they are .. we are all beautiful creations of the Almighty.. special n unique in our own way... you’ll  are truly beautiful n special.. n do not let anyone take that from you... failures n pain is a part of the journey... they make us strong n humble .. value that too... good morning people.. have a lovely week ahead ๐Ÿ˜Š

Women

Women
She was a tender loving soul
Cocooned in a misty softness
Her heart was crafted by a multitude of emotions
Her eyes were windows of her soul
When they looked at her
She looked as soft as cotton candy
Yet there was a hardness within her
And insurmountable strength
Which she drew from the deep reserves within her
The softness in her eyes
Could turn into the warrior
Which she was
She stood at the forefront of chaos
At the start of the battle
The battle in and around her
She plunged deep into the chaos
Without batting an eyelid
She won the battle of life with love n sword
Women !!

An ode to my father’s memories

An ode to my father’s memories
34 years ago u left suddenly for your long journey... the house where we had so many memories with you ... we were leaving and moving... packing our belongings n memories. I still remember that moment so clearly when Mummy told me  to go n check my  room  for the last time, to see if , I had packed everything. I went into my room ... looked closely n silently around ..  the window where I waited for you to return from work.. the corner where I would play .... where I would read n learn from you .....thinking of all those beautiful moments ,I had to pack in my tender little heart. I packed it and tied it with a string and placed it deep within me. As we left the house , one last time , I turned around and looked at the door willing it to open for one last time. Alas! It never opened again and I ventured into unchartered waters , unaware of what lay ahead-

Journey of life

In the journey of life. I have come across one thing and which made me Wonder. Genuine loving caring people are actually so few. People who touch your heart n soul. We meet people but how many actually leave an imprint  and impression. How many people do u think of when u have your quiet moment. There might just be a handful. But there are some people who leave their imprint on your soul n heart for life. So many people who I was fortunate enough to meet as a child have still left their mark on me after almost 3 decades. Welcome everyone in your life . U might not be fortunate enough to meet those people twice. Good morning people. Have a lovely weekend ahead n keep smiling ๐Ÿ˜Š-

Woes of children

Woes of children 
Give me a pill which will help me to forget pain
Give me something which will kill my hunger for life
Give me something to numb the pain
Give me something to dry my tears for life
Can you give me something which will not let me feel pain again
Which will not let me cry
again
Woes of children
From the war torn regions
We don’t have food
We don’t have water
We don’t have shelters
What we have
Is pain
A deep searing pain
Tears of blood
Scars deeply embedded in our hearts n souls
Yes this  is what we have
The music we hear
Is the noise of explosions
Splintering glass
Drones
The rhythmic drum of the drone
The deafening noise of the
bombs
These are rhymes n rhythmic music
This is the world we know
A ๐Ÿ˜” sad , horrific world-

Gypsy

Gypsy
She always loved that word
Some called her gypsy for her spirit
Some for her thoughts
But when she heard the word
Something in her always made her feel free
Free in her thinking
Free in the twinkle of her eyes
Free in the saucy grin n
Free in her whole being
Free in her infectious laughter
The Gypsy in her wanted to travel
Through the length n breath
Of the universe
Leave her mark
She closely identified to the gypsiness
In her free soul
The Gypsy queen
Free n unbounded
She surges deeper n higher in her flight of life-

Think about ourselves

Often in life we r taught or rather conditioned to think about ourselves last . We r always taught to put others needs , emotions n feelings first. Ours is not important n can come last. But then what happens to us. We r left with a truckload of negative feelings which in turn affects us emotionally n physically. One important lesson I have learnt is I also matter. I’m important too and no one can understand this better than the person staring at you from the mirror. Don’t feel guilty for putting yourself first. We owe it to ourselves. As others r important  too, your first priority is yourself. Like I always say” Sweetheart this life is totally your responsibility , no one’s coming to save you”. Stay strong n stay true to yourself. Good morning people... have a lovely day n a superb week ahead n love yourself to the moon n back ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜

Take the world in it’s stride

The search goes on in each  one
But the search for each one of them is different
Some search for the stillness
Some for the yearning in the soul
Some for love
Some for more
But what I learnt
The being rests
When the soul is happy n rested
N that you only gain by
Being true
Being loving
N living
Being kind
The mantra is simple
Be yourself
The world will adjust
If they don’t
You still carry on the path
Destinations unknown
I travel beyond
N look for my path
No not where it shall take me
Take the world in it’s stride๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

Peace

Peace
The dying children
The grieving parents
The young widows
The hungry
The orphans
In the world today
Laden with chaos
Steeped in the blood of innocents
Somewhere children r deprived because of war
Somewhere it’s the system
As they all gather together
They cry for peace
They shed tears of blood
Heavy hearts n heavier souls
Where is there peace
Take us to yonder
Where we can breathe
Where we can laugh
Where there is no sound of bomb
Where there are no cries
Where is such a peaceful heaven
Is there any place like that today? Deep in chaos
We all breathe-

Emergence of 2020

Emergence of 2020
As I sat under the canopy of trees. With the  chirping of birds the soft sounds of nature. I felt deep serenity within me. My warm coffee ☕ mug lay enveloped in my hands. The soft breeze . Only sounds of nature gave me company. As I sat deep in thought thinking of the past decades . Few memories came unbridled to my mind. Few lay completely forgotten . Just a gentle sprinkle of moments. The sun lazily painted its hues in the sky . I kept looking at it. Then smiled n just said a simple Thank you. Blessings n Gratitude. The crux of life . Gratitude defines what shall be laid out in the future. Leave the rest to what shall be. Have a Rocking day and a blessed year ahead. .. Don’t forget your smile๐Ÿ˜Š
