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 !!

Roses…

 

rose

Innocent like a little baby,

Attractive like a little sequin,

Resplendent like a magnificent ruby,

Elegant like a beautiful queen.

Oh roses ! You match the traits of a majestic warrior,

Bunched together, you are an ambassador of best wishes and peace,

You transcend all religions and cross barriers with ease,

You are sublimity personified at His feet !!

 

 

 

 

 

Dream..

Someplace, far away,

Under the soft blanket of the blissful blue sky,

Where there are no tears, no sorrows,

No fears, no stress, no hurry for tomorrow

I would like to stay and truly live my life..

Under the soft blanket of the blissful blue sky,

Where there is compassion and love,

Where there is a treasure chest of goodness to shove,

Where there are rains of peace and harmony from above,

I would like to stay and truly live my life..

Under the soft blanket of the blissful blue sky,

Where I could take a flight in the unchartered universe,

Where I could flutter around gathering the nectar from the life’s deep caverns,

Where I could be myself, without being torn apart playing different roles,

I would like to stay and truly live my life..

Under the soft blanket of the blissful blue sky…

Someplace, far away…

 

Life is fair?

To battle the fierce fears,

Which attack our sole soul,

We should sometimes be allowed to cry aloud,

And apply a balm on our sore heart to help us soar high,

We need to shear the ego & the ‘I’, and see life through the sheer “eye“,

And let go of some of our limiting attributes and sum up our life.

The underlying requirement of human life, is a Piece of Peace,

To tide over, our tied shackles of problems and limitations.

We tend to assess if life is fair, but the truth that matters is, in this journey how did we fare?

 

I have used homophones in each line of this piece and tried to bring out the gist of life. Hope you all enjoy it.

Chaos to peace..

Chaos to Peace for wordpress..

A whirlwind of thoughts,

Coming in different sizes, colors and hues,

Inflicting our heart and mind,

Confusion, disorder, chaos prevailing..

Leaving us in disturbed, stressful, and angry states of mind.

The onus is on us,

To dive deep within ourselves,

To tap into that untouched love, that peace and calm..

To put an order to the chaotic thoughts.

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 beautiful maiden..

via Daily Prompt: Brilliant

pray-1639946__340.jpg

A beautiful maiden, strolling in the garden,

Amid the creators brilliant creations,

Admiring the beauty of dahlias and carnations,

Amid humming insects and chirping birds,

Lying on the lap of Mother Earth,

Under the vast expanse of the calm blue sky,

Covered with a blanket of soft white floating clouds.

Drifting in  pure natural bliss, she had to let go of her short lived blissful elation,

Slipping in a chain of thoughts funneling  down into the dark abyss of her mind,

As she recalled the pain and agony of losing someone she really loved,

Her big grey eyes, forlorn with unfathomable emotion,

Continuing with the turmoil of life, which was far from a peaceful completion,

Her spirit and soul had been tattered,

The inner peace was all that mattered,

She prayed to Mother Earth, to embrace her with open arms,

As it would put an end to all her uneasy qualms !!

 

 

 

Global warming of emotions..

via daily prompt : grit

Grit, courage, resolve, strength are all attributes which are required on a day to day basis. We can see multiple instances of this all around us.

We very frequently torment our Mother Earth with various forms of troubles in the form different types of pollution, deforestation, garbage dumps, global warming to name a few. And I’m sure, it’s not easy for the mother to handle all of this. She definitely needs a lot of grit and resolve to deal with it.

Similarly, we too, in our day to day lives, accumulate a lot of emotional pollution (gossip, being judgemental, greed ),emotional deforestation (cutting down our tree of life by losing our peace, calmness and satisfaction), emotional garbage (frustration, suppressed emotions), and emotional global warming (anger, stress….) to name a few.

It is a given then, that we do need a cosmic, colossal and elephantine load of grit, courage, resolve and strength for our emotional wellness and to carry on with our complicated’ly’ created life !!
