Roots

via Daily Prompt: Roots

trees-1949497_960_720.png

When you spread your toes wide

And stand on the ground,

Imagine roots growing from your feet,

Deep into the earth around.

When your roots are strong,

Anything seldom goes wrong,

You are grounded firmly and benefits you reap,

With values and morals running deep.

When your roots are weak,

Your future is bleak,

A spectator you are, standing meek,

With no roots to nourish and seek.

Roots are existence, uprooted they die,

They strengthen and nourish,

Give life to cherish,

Without roots, we will all perish.

 

The journey continues..

question-mark-1456854__340

A flurry of thoughts,

A scurry of emotions,

A hurry to reach your destination,

A blurry sight of vision,

A tussle between a confused mind and a demanding brain,

A reason, good enough for devastation…

 

It is then, you require,

 

A space for breathing,

A room for silence,

An ear to listen,

A hand to hold,

A shoulder to rest your head on,

Eyes to shed tears,

And just be…

 

And then you feel,

 

A shower of blessing,

A touch of warmth,

A kiss of love,

A hug with power…

From a parent, a loved one….

Which brings back the avid energy,

To control your emotions, and restore your connection,

And to walk the path of life to reach your destination….

The journey continues, as life is a series of such situations.

 

Being opaque.

Being opaque is –  holding oneself back,

Blocking our thoughts,

Suppressing oneself,

Constricting the flow of life,

Feeling suffocated….

All of this, to please someone, to keep relationships sane, to look good, to belong.

We all go through this in some form or other, and hence, we end up not living our life to the fullest, we are unable to enjoy life or allow life to happen to us.

If only, we could break free of these shackles….

If only, we could be like a prism to reflect all the colors of a rainbow…

If only, we could practice being transparent on a moment to moment basis, we could see the clear reflection of thoughts, feelings, colors and life.

Journey of the mind

via Daily Prompt: Cranky

face-636092__340.jpg

The journey of a random thousand mayhem thoughts,

Up and down, round and round, till they form tiny clots,

Clots safely tucked up in the brain,

Fears, apprehensions forming a chain,

Unfair demands, dying passion causing pain,

Feeling suffocated and claustrophobic and in strain,

Stacking layers of unaccepted demands and tears and self refrain,

Maintaining composure and peace to keep relationships sane,

The clots hemorrhaging, to put us through agonizing pain,

Oh Mind !! You cranky little devil, cease to take me on a journey of a thousand mayhem thoughts in vain.

Timely Help

time-1739629__340.jpg

A timely nudge from your friend, when you are busy playing mischief in class and the teacher has arrived,

A timely recollection of an answer, when time is ticking in an exam,

A timely wake up call to get ready for school/work,

A timely hug, by your loved one, when you are upset,

A timely help, when you are lost in a lonely unknown street,

A timely acknowledgement, when you are low,

A timely advice, which changes the course of your life,

A timely run into the metro, when the door closes shut behind you…

There are a number of instances or times in life, when we do get timely help, in different forms, which pulls us on to the right path at the right time, don’t you think so?

Do share any instances from your life, where you have received timely help…..would love to hear from you all.

On the cusp of fear, emerges faith,

On the cusp of faith, emerges hope,

On the cusp of hope, emerges life,

On the cusp of life, emerges death.

It is a fraction of a moment,  when the two curves decide to meet at a point. It marks, the end of one and the beginning of the other.

Live every moment, for you know not, when the curves meet. Live like there’s no tomorrow. Live like you can make a difference today and now !!

Country, States, Cities, we mark our geographical boundaries.

I, me, mine, we mark our physical boundaries.

Each soul, encased in a body, marking it’s territory, protecting it, trying to keep it safe and secure…

But, there’s only one world, one universe, one globe, one power, one sun, one moon – No territories, No boundaries. We are all bound by all that is “ONE”, which proves that we are one species, the human species, with different souls and different bodies.

Let’s celebrate the “ONENESS” and be open to the gift of universal love and affection.

Let’s receive, let’s project and let’s give out love….beyond me and mine. Let’s extend our territory.
