Success

Gleaming cars and marigold showers,🌻🌻
Red carpets and ivory towers,
A whiff of success,📸💰
The poisionous perfume,🍷
Ignites the flickered spark to flame and fume.💣

Rough Cut Life


It is a tad bit sudden, for the others cruel,
To be discovered  that you were no fool,
So, silently opens the blooming flower,
Preceding a fragrance, form the dredges to the high towers.

From the jagged black rock shines the sparkling stone,
If one had not seen, none would have known,
Out from the darkness of others where it appears, it beams,
To the jewelers eye it catches ,it gleams,

To have risen up separated, from being blamed for ways of others,
Why jealous do others feel ? And envy others feel? You can try and appeal,
Are we to know when to rise and fall?
Who to support and whom to stall?
But ,
Support we must ,stall we must,
Rise we must and fall we must,
And such we fall that we turn to ash, to turn to dust,
yet,

 Then the time goes, wind blows, and tumbling white water flows,
The dust rises in throes, scattering and compressing,
 Funneling, caressing and shaping,
Turning into statues, monuments ,and tall buildings,
Tall ,strong ,hard ,set in platinum and gold,
Magnificent, unique, superb and splendid,
Articulate and candid,
A rough cut stone ,a rough cut life.

Waiting For The Muse

Hello friends! Has it ever occurred that you love to create and that creativity just doesn't come to you? OR you have a favourite band/ musician and you are waiting for them to release a song and you wait and wait? But isn't it also true that the adventure is in the wait and the chase? Life's destinations are the same, its the journey that is the challenge. Well here is a poem on the Muse! Enjoy!

Waiting for the Music

Is it that the flowers speak to the bees?

Or the leaves whisper to the trees?

And the shimmering dark ponds, gaze at Venus at night?

And when shall the moon shine out that light?

As we wait for the whistling winds to blow,

In the distance the fireflies glow,

When will we hear the music sweet, we ponder and wonder, we look, we seek?

When shall the muse strum her songs?

 We have been waiting  just far too long!

And thus we gaze and thus we wait,

On her door steps and near the gates,

When shall she open her bolted doors?

And send her mellifluous music across the shores?

A Happy Life Song


Hi friends! We all want to be happy and healthy  in order that we are able to withstand the adversities in life. And thus so, lets’ laugh a little. When I was growing up I watched a movie called Mary Poppins in which a gentlemen loves to laugh,starts floating in air and makes every other person who visit him also laugh and float, and  feeling sad he comes down to earth. ‘I love to laugh ha ha ha’ goes  the song. Its just great to be a little silly in life. Laugh at really impossible situations & problems you will see the brighter side. Of course it doesn’t mean that if someone falls down or gets killed in a terrorist attack you laugh like a maniac! But smile at difficulties, and maybe a solution will come to you. Laughing by itself crates the necessary hormones equal to an intensive work out and instantly makes you feel invigorated. Not only do you feel elated but you spread happiness all around. So if the heart is happy then so shall the rest of the body be, all beating fast like the drums in a metal band. Why is it that when we hear a fast beat our mood lifts? And thus so you shall too be able to lift yourself to the beat of your heart and sing a song of happiness to everyone.

Sing a song of happiness,

Sing a song of love,

Sing when you cry or feel sad,

And at times when everything is getting on your nerves,

Sing when you feel the joy,

Sing as life goes by,

Sing cause you want to be merry,

Sing and things will not be too scary,

Sing and you shall have no worry,

Sing and you will see life clearly,

Sing a happy life song.

Want Not Worry Not

Hello friends and readers, here is a rebound moment for your Jedi. A small thought to ponder on.Has it ever happened to you when you are in the pits of your emotions and then just start feeling happy and enthusiastic? What is it, what happened? Was it a change in the mind or was it return to sanity? And that is what it all is about.

I came to understand that happiness lies in the heart. And once the heart is happy health will follow. The harder you fall the higher you rebound and meet success and peace.

We all get stretched to the limit like an elastic band and some of us do snap. But if you do feel that you are being stretched to your limits and cannot do it anymore, always remember that you are not alone. Search and you shall find in each heart lies sorrow because we want too much.

How about for a change, letting go certain wants and getting out of comfort zones? Do try and you will meet new experiences which will make you grow. Let It Go. Let it Go. Let it Go...
Want Not Worry Not!
Think Not and Wish Not
And you shall clearly see
That it is the empty shell in which you hear the Sea!
And things are not as hard as you feel,
So let happiness flow........

Return of the Jedi!!

Hello is there anybody out there? ( Pink Floyd- please correct me friends). Those who are still reading. It has been an very hectic and complicated year for me. Sitting atop 8000ft alt. Where connectivity depends on the amount of clouds and rain causing havoc. I have been out of it. BUT I am back and life is beautiful!! Being dependent on nature I realize how small and insignificant we all are in this world, and that life is an experience which you must cherish at each second. Just watch a butterfly flit and  in seconds you will see beauty in all its simplicity.

Hope you all are well. Hope to be interacting with you ( if any still n )

bye and may the 'Force' be with you!

Connect - Disconnect


My dear friends, my readers, has it ever happened that in the usual humdrum of life you suddenly just disconnect and see yourself in a vacuum, as if from outside in? In that moment, you just get a perspective on your own life and situation at times. In these last three months, I too took an outside in view of my life and priorities. I disconnected from the internet to connect back to it in a refocused manner. This can happen when one faces an event which moves them. Well, for me it was the loss of my grandmother whom I really loved. I was not able to meet her due to certain factors for many years, and when I did meet her with my whole family, she was really happy and said that ‘I am so glad you came with your husband and child’. She was admitted to the hospital a week after I left and passed away silently in her sleep. In her last few hours, she spent in singing all the songs she knew from nursery rhymes to patriotic songs, before she fell asleep, she took my sons name and said repeatedly how overjoyed she was that she had met him, and closed her eyes to this world.

The poem below is not about my grandmother, it is about introspection and prioritizing.
 

Connect -Disconnect
 
Power on-

-
Ready,

In silence,

All work done,

I wait in the stillness, with fast music behind,

dogs barking,

and the child giggling away near the TV,

and the fan above swishing ,the lap top humming,

Some thing to inspire me?  Memories?

Cursor ask questions flashing  I  I  I  I   I  I   



I am ready,

Sitting, looking at my own paintings on the walls, with mistakes which only I can see,

The sofa and the silk cushions,

The flowers still fresh in their crystal vases,

The pretty red carpet and the bamboo lampshade hangs on, sitting in one part of the room like me,

I complete the picture, a decorative peace which fits in all around the house,

 
 
I am ready,

Who’s bell is that? No, not mine.

Who’s car is that? No, not for me.

My phone on my side with 150 contact numbers,300 facebook ‘ likes’

But no one to talk to or to listen!

‘This phone number does not exist'

The caller is busy , please stay on line’

 ‘All lines are busy at the moment, please call later’

‘Server down’

Oh well, that’s enough conversation for today!

I am ready.

Ready in silence. I  I  I  I   I  I   

Hibernate?

Shutdown?

Restart?
