Abstract

Abstract is undefined,

Abstract is beautiful and infinite,

Abstract is unfinished and unrefined,

Abstract is darkness and light.

Raw and unprocessed thoughts are abstract,

Fear and imagination, the mind and perception,

are all so fluid and abstract,

The flow of life and the science of creation,

Is a piece of  abstract art, by the divine artisan !!

Nuance

via Daily Prompt: Nuance

Nuance, is the foundation stone,

In the misunderstanding zone,

You intend to convey with a particular tone,

The affected, has to put up all alone.

So begins the journey of false impressions,

Which is based on a misinterpretation,

Which causes a good amount of confusion,

And, of course, does not meet your expectations !!

Nuances of the statements, we miscalculate,

Small instances, inviting innumerable debates,

False judgements and misinterpretations,

Leading to many misconceptions.

Disagreements, squabbles, differences and fights,

It’s only about proving  a point to be right

Let go of your inherent instinct to jibe,

Let us all have a happy and positive vibe !!

Nervous

It was a few months back, when I was watching the movie “MS Dhoni – The untold story”, with my daughters. All going fine, a few comments, usual household scenes unfolding at home, while watching the movie, relaxed and easy.

There comes a scene in the movie where there’s an accident, car and a van collision. The sound projected in the scene almost makes your heart skip a beat, shaking you off the calm and sombre atmosphere of watching the movie. The sound hit us all of a sudden and my little daughter gave a nervous shriek.

A  few days later my husband was watching the same movie. Nearing the car accident scene, my little one said, ‘Papa, you are going to get a heart attack’. We were all puzzled at her statement and my elder one immediately got on to her job to say,  you are not to talk like that. It’s not done. To which, my little one blurted out, why? The other day while watching this scene, even I got a heart attack.

We all understood the intention of her statement and had a hearty laugh.

Vivid

I have been to different places and have fond memories of those beautiful places. But the most vivid memories, are the ones which relate to nature, culture and people. Looking at nature, enthuses me and gives me varied lessons, one of them being, be it anywhere in the world, mother nature does not differentiate between her children.

Different time zones, different times, one sunrise – bright and radiant.

Different places, different plateaus and mountain peaks – mighty, encompassing  and powerful

Different continents, different seas and  vast oceans – lifelike and crystal clear.

Different planes, different deserts, huge forests –  Impressive, extensive and rich.

Different areas, different birds, different flowers – colorful, vibrant and realistic.

Different countries, different religions, different people – eye catching, warm and striking.

Different dialects, different origins, one language running deep all over the world – LOVE.

Desire

When we desire,

We aspire,

To reach higher,

To want more, and to acquire.

We raise our expectations,

We raise the bar,

We try hard to cross the bar,

But neither we reach, nor are we at par.

In one more page of life,

We are penning friction and strife,

We are sketching sadness,

In the lookout for happiness.

We think, happiness is elusive,

Looking for it in the outer,

Little do we realize,

It’s neatly stacked in the inner.

If you want to be in the good books of life,

Pen down contentment and peace,

Aim for desires, which you can reach with grace,

Satisfaction, happiness, you’ll surely find, with ease.

Hesitate

via Daily Prompt: Hesitate

stock-photo-young-slim-woman-has-to-decide-between-two-directions-girl-in-white-full-of-doubts-and-hesitation-440995552-1

Hesitate not, to leap forward,

Hesitate not, to reach the sky,

Hesitate not, to march ahead,

Hesitate not, to live life full out,

Hesitate not, to offer a helping hand,

Hesitate not, to share a bite,

Hesitate not, to spread a smile,

Hesitate not, to give out love.

BUT,

Do take a moment  to,

Hesitate, before you react,

Hesitate, before your anger bursts,

Hesitate, before your action hurts,

Hesitate, before you are curt.

A combination of  ‘Hesitate Not’ and ‘Hesitate’ moments, is what situations are all about.

‘Hesitate not’, to share your thoughts 🙂

Quicken

It’s time to wake up, come on, hurry up, get out of bed and get going with your morning activities, and make it fast, else you’ll end up missing your school bus…

So, starts the dialogue of the day in most houses between parents and children. C’mon finish your bath quickly in five mins, come have your breakfast, make it fast..

“But mama, I’m so sleepy, can I sleep for a while?” No way, you should go to bed  early at night so that you are rested completely. You chose to play with your sister and while away your time.You can’t afford to sleep now. C’mon, hurry up and eat your food.. and so on…

A relaxed, stress free child is what we are all blessed with. It is we, the parents, who burden them with unnecessary stress, teach them to hurry up, teach them to multitask, teach them excessive anger, push them to achieve more, to the extent that it quickens their heart beat….

It is then we realize, Oh Gosh ! My child is stressed out.I need to teach him to relax and be stress free. But then, it’s too late. Stress is wired into their being and system.

The irony of the whole situation being, we teach the relaxed child to become stressed and then expect a bottled up child to relax and loosen up.

Couldn’t we just allow them to be just children, enjoy nature, allow them to play with their siblings, be gentle with them. In most cases,it’s the parents stress that’s being transferred on to the child. Isn’t it sad and true ?

 

This is what we get…

baby

 

This is what we make them to be..
