What do I write….

Ic : Internet

For days and weeks, there are random thoughts,
I need to write, but on what?
Random flashes flickering in mind,
They fail to respond and go through the grind.
Topics, puzzles, pictures and figures,
Fail to set the neurons to trigger,
Trying to pen a few lines, to be poetic,
But alas, my writing seems so anemic …
Hope to thaw my thoughts out of its frozen state,
And have the verses flow out onto the poet’s slate !!

Happy woman’s day…

Ic : Google/Internet

Is she pretty, or are the flowers adding to her beauty?
Is she hiding behind a veil of  red roses, or are they are covering up her sorrow ?
Is she enjoying their fragrance or are they providing solace to her troubled mind?
Is she adorning a beautiful ornament or are they adoring her beauty?
Either ways we look at it,
A woman is as beautiful as the flowers,
And the flowers only accentuate her beauty.

Kudos and respect to every woman, this woman’s day and everyday !!

Stop, and find your way to Freedom

freedom

Ic : Internet/Google

Stop galloping, and you will breathe,

Stop going haywire and you will arrive at your destination,

Stop looking out, for you shall encounter ‘peace’ within,

Give a pause to talking, you will listen to the melody of life,

Stop crying and whining, to smile and enjoy the Creator’s Creation,

Stop yelling and you will connect with silence,

Stop holding on, and you will find freedom !!

Selfish, Are you??

Pc :Internet/Google

The most selfish creature on earth,
The perpetrator, who extracts every pennies worth,
Love is scarce, there is evidence of dearth,
How could I benefit, what’s in it for me, a blooming mirth.

Stress, tension, worries galore,
Human kind, who longs for more,
Never satisfied, seeking some more,
A little more, a little more, until, one is no more.

Mirror, mirror on the wall,

Who is the most selfish of all, Without doubt, it is mankind,

To the needs of others, who is blind !!

Birthday Blues ??

Ic : Google/Internet

No more colour clothes,
For birthdays in school,
For we have graduated from primary to middle school,
No more pretty dresses and open tresses,
Only chocolates in the box.
In between the book stocks.
The thrill of feeling special,
And receiving umpteen wishes,
Are a thing of the past,
Having grown up to be a big girl,
Have to study a lot..
Gone are the days of enjoyment,
Having fun ?? I guess it’s lost,
For growing up comes with a bag full of responsibilities on all fronts,
For the little freebies and fun,we need to go on a little hunt 😊😊

As my little girl celebrates her birthday today, she had a mixed bag of emotions this morning. She was happy it was her birthday, but sad as her school has a no colour dress policy, for birthdays from middle school… Just penned down a few thoughts based on my interaction with my her.

Smile..

Pc : Internet/Google

When we pose for the camera, we don our best smile,
To look good for eternity, we smile for a while,
The picture finds its place in the album,
Neatly stacked, put away for times to come,
Back then to the grind of life, we tuck our smiles somewhere within,
Deep slumber, encompassing the smiles…
Awakened, once again, when it’s time to run the next mile,
To pose for the camera, we smile for a while ….
Little do we realise, the world is a camera, we need to smile all the while 🙂

What you possess, you display,
What you sow, is what you reap,
what you give is what you get,
So, smile, and the world smiles back at you !!

WALK THE TALK..

emotions

PC : Google/Internet

We are all, at some point in time, angry with someone,

Filled with frustration against our loved ones,

Feel disrespected and unloved by near and dear ones,

And do feel trampled and taken for granted, at times, by someone.

We feel sad and dejected 😦

If we are feeling any of these emotions,

We are feeding these emotions.

It is a weed growing  within, stealing nourishment from the positivity within.

It’s a jungle of negativity in there, of unruly thoughts and we are feeling suffocated and strangled by them.

Believe me, it’s not someone or our loved one,

It’s us, who has all of these unruly emotions within, which we are showcasing.

Because, we cannot showcase what does not belong to us..

So, come my dear friends, let’s embark on a long walk, 

With a talk to battle the unsettling thoughts,

A walk to shed those extra pounds, which our mind has harbored around,

Let’s go within, to cut out those unruly weeds of negative emotions,

The feelings of anger, jealousy, sadness and frustration,

A journey within to meet our true selves and plant seeds of positive emotions !!

I do hope, I find enough people on this journey, I intend to take, whom I could  call my friends,

Please join me in taking on cleaning one weed of negative emotion, which we can mend….

Hope to hear about your little devil, which you would want to give up,

And make a conscious effort to keep it at bay…

Speak words of love,

Let our actions show care,

Yes, we might be angry or frustrated,

But, tomorrow, our loved one may not be there 😦

As we walk the path of life,

With our friends, dear ones or soulmate,

Let’s live, laugh and love more,

Before it’s too late to enjoy anymore !!

I wish, I could be a child again..

childhood

I wish, I could be a child again..

Reminiscing my childhood domain,

Fun, laughter, frolic and sweet pain,

I wish, I could relive those moments again,

Oh, how I wish I could be a child again.

Friendly chatter, pleasant and innocent banter,

Simple jokes, belly hurting laughter,

A small radio or a mobile transistor,

Ever satiating our recreational hunger..

I wish I could go back in memory lane,

Oh, how I wish, I could be a child again.

Chasing dreams of flying a plane,

Or even thinking of driving “BIG” trains,

Going up and down in the lifts, over and again,

I wish, I could grow up once again,

Oh, how I wish I could be a child again !

No fancy toys, just games insane,

Be it sunshine, wind or rains,

Floating paper boats, in puddles of water in lanes,

I wish, my present, were as simple and plain,

Oh, how I wish I could be a child again.

No phone ring-ring, no remotes for channel surfing,

No laptops, I-pads or mobiles for time passing,

We delved in our confused thoughts, curious minds tossing,

Taking us to the crossroads of life without an idea or inkling,

I wish, I could continue with the “NO STRESS” chain,

I wish I could be a child again !
