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 !!

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 !!

Little Things….

Little things.jpg

Simple things in life are free,

A hug, laughter and a smile,

A pat on the back, wouldn’t hurt, once in a while.

A word of praise, a compliment,

A simple appreciation,

Could add to one’s emotional achievement.

A thank you note, a caring stroke,

A kind gesture to light up fellow folks,

A little practice of gratitude, wouldn’t hurt, to bring about a change in attitude.

It’s never too late to begin our journey,

To enjoy the little things in life,

Let’s extend a helping hand of kindness and laughter to someone, today,

As we spread our wings, to reach towards the sky !!
