Those days…

dove-3426187__340.jpg

There are days in life,

When things just happen,

Thoughts just flow freely,

We feel satisfied and content,

Full of life, happiness and energy..

                                  *

There are days, when we don’t need phones, gadgets or televisions,

The days when we can just hum and sing along for hours,

The days when we can cook a meal with all love flowing through..

                                 *

The days when we practice compassion and gratitude,

The days we have oodles of patience to deal with the tantrums of our little children,

The days when we are able to put up with the whims and fancies of people around us,

The days when nothing can possibly trigger our anger  and irritation.

                                   *

Those are the days, We meet our true self,

That’s the way we all are created,

That’s the way we are all meant to be.

                                   *

So, lets adopt a simple smile,

Imbibe a little peace and calm,

Lets have a little laugh till our stomach hurts,

And lets keep the stress away for a while.

                                   *

Lets all become a little aware,

And  put it into practice..

For a day might arrive,

We can just go with the flow of life,

Give ourselves another chance,

To dance and sway to life’s trance.

The Invisible Thief…

via Daily Prompt: Invisible

When our mind is still

And totally at peace,

When our mind is tranquil

And we are in a state of bliss,

The sole invisible thought enters as a thief

And gains access into our mind,

Creates waves and ripples to play havoc within,

It robs us of our peace and state of bliss,

Leaves us with a thirst in our mental abyss,

Our mind longing for inner peace,

But alas, everything we try is amiss..

We long to belong,

To the invisible energy,

We again begin to work our way,

Through the countless thoughts,

Which are now seated in our mental bay,

We have to come to terms with reality

And live our life with renewed tenacity,

Till we find our mental peace,

By driving away the invisible thief !!

 

The referee

A strategy requires energy. Energy of the brain to think forward, to plan, to get the approach right, and a lot of people belong to this category, who plan out their strategy on a detailed and minute basis to optimize the game plan of life.

But, not to forget, there is a blueprint of our life with the Master Strategist. A plan for every one, and everyone with a plan. An approach and master plan to connect us to the game called life. So, whatever we plan and whatever strategies we make, the last and final call always is with HIM – the referee. No wonder then,  it is said, man proposes and GOD disposes !!

Let go : Release

To release, is something, which does not come naturally to us humans. We have the tendency to hold on to things, people, wealth, thoughts, life & so on..

I guess, this tendency stems from the fact that if we release the hold, we lose control.

The fear of losing something, makes us hold on to, and we get entwined and entangled in life, like the roots of a tree.

If only, we could all,

Release the aches and pains,

Release the thoughts that refrain,

Release the unexpressed emotions,

Release and let go of the pent up frustration,

Break open the shackles and chains,

Tied up, within, to hold us back in vain,

Release the fears and unwanted self imposed restrictions,

To liberate the stress and accumulated apprehensions.

To free up and create space within,

And release the dormant energy within,

Let go of the unfulfilled incompletions,

Scan ourselves, to release the unwanted,

Detox our mind, and achieve all that we wanted.

Let us release, when we still have energy and Life.

We do not have another chance,

For, when we let go of our breath, we release our life.

 

 

 

Haibun – An artists composition

The melodies of my day, dancing along the happy and the sad keys. Some beautiful memories of fun and frolic playing the happy keys. And, while I am upset and disturbed with the notes of arguments and misunderstandings with my near and dear ones, I am swaying to the tunes of the sad keys. I turn my mode, to one of introspection, to get a blend of harmony into my notes. The musical notes calming my nerves and soothing my anxious energies. Synergy with my energy triggering the artistic passion in me to create and give a beautiful art form to my tangled thoughts.

Patterns and notes,

Blend to perfect harmony,

Lending a thought to my creation,

Oh ! What a perfect combination !!

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.
