Daily Prompt ~Dust in the Wind

Posted on

Daily Prompt- Dust in the Wind- Have you made your bucket list? Now’s the time — write about the things you want to do and see before you become dust in the wind.

 

The Things I Want To Do

 

Whatever I’m today 

Because of the choices I have made

By following decisions I took

By following the path I choose 

And do whatever I could

In given circumstances.

Still some desires are there unfulfilled.

Though my age may not permit me,

I would like to climb The Himalayas

Travel around the world

 Dance on the clouds

 Go on a voyage

 Fly with the birds.

 But this is what I can still accomplish 

 Sing a lovely song of love and peace

 Write a poem on friendship, compassion and compatibility

 Give a smile to everyone I meet

 Help someone living his/her dream

 I pray to God please help me to fulfill

 Whatever whimsy ideas come in my mind

 Before I become dust in the wind.

 

 

 

Everyday is Friendship Day

Posted on

Somewhere in life

There must be someone

To take your hand

And share the torride day.

Without the touch of friendship

There is no life, and we must fade away.

My take on friends and friendship

What are friends there for ?

If not for 
Care, concern and adulation
For being comfortable
In silence and communication
For supporting each other
In every difficult situation
For helping each other
Without humiliation
For accepting each other
Without any discrimination.
———————————

Some Haiku(s) 

1- Friendship can unite

     Different species together

     Miraculous bond

2- True friend and friendship

     Most rare and valuable gift

     Treasure it with care

3- Love, trust, compassion

    Synonymous with friendship

    True friends are a bliss 

4-  If all religions 

      Shed their animosity

       Friendliness survives

5- Who cares for color

     When bond of love is strong

     Friendship matters more

black and white

 

Size does not matter

Caste and creed may be different

Friendship cares for none

affection

Friends! What’s your take on friendship, share with me .

ESE’ S WEEKLY SHOOT&QUOTE CHALLENGE – WINGS

Something opens our wings. Something makes boredom and hurt disappear. Someone fills the cup in front of us: We taste only sacredness.

Rumi

Birds have wings; they’re free; they can fly where they want when they want. They have the kind of mobility many people envy.

The butterfly doesn’t know how long he has to live, but that doesn’t stop him from spreading his wings and his joy.

It is well to fetter the wings of our fancy and restrain its flights.

From your parents you learn love and laughter and how to put one foot before the other. But when books are opened you discover that you have wings.

Helen Hayes

“Give the ones you love wings to fly, roots to come back and reasons to stay.”

Monthly Peace Challenge: Peace Child/ PLEA OF A CHILD

Monthly Peace Challenge: Peace Child-

 PLEA OF A CHILD

I am born innocent, full of love and peace.

I am born neither Hindu, Muslim, Christian nor Sikh, Jain or Buddhist.

You brand me with a label of religion without me knowing what a religion is.

Instead of teaching me love, friendship, compassion and compatibility, you teach me to hate people of other religions.

You teach me to hate people of other religion, ideology , color, caste and creed.

I request all the teachers, parents and elder person, please stop teaching me anything.

There will be differences between us as no two people can think alike but we will manage.

We will play, fight and make up if we are not taught to carry on fights on the basis of ego and arrogance.

If you stop fighting with each other and start living in peace and harmony we will automatically learn that.

If you will give respect to people of other religion, caste and creed, you will not have to bother with teaching me anything as we children are  incarnation of love and peace.

*******************************************************************************************************************

The Child-Angel

They clamor and fight, they doubt and despair, they know no end
to their wrangling.
Let your life come amongst them like a flame of light, my
child, unflickering and pure, and delight them into silence.
They are cruel in their greed and their envy, their words are like
hidden knives thirsting for blood.
Go and stand amidst their scowling hearts, my child, and let
your gentle eyes fall upon them like the forgiving peace of the
evening over the strife of the day.
Let them see your face, my child, and thus know the meaning
of all things; let them love you and thus love each other.
Come and take your seat in the bosom of the limitless, my
child. At sunrise open and raise your heart like a blossoming
flower, and at sunset bend your head and in silence complete the
worship of the day.

Rabindranath Tagore

B4Peace- A Party For Peace.

Posted on

B4Peace- So this months challenge is to plan a party that will ripple peace to the world-Kozo

A Party For Peace.

I’m not a party person so the very idea of party  scares me, moreover, I never had a chance to organize a very big party as peace lovers are much more in numbers compared to those who are destroyer of peace. I’ve met thousands of people who wants peace in this world. All religions preach love, compassion and peace so how come there is so much unrest, terrorism, violence, wars in this world. How come handful of people in their greed of money and power can teach and spread so much hatred amongst people in the name of color, caste, creed and religion and if it can be taught so definitely love also can be taught.

I’ll request my wonderful friends Kozo, Archita and RaraSaur to help me organize the party and I’m sure these kind souls will help me.

All peace lovers are welcome to my place  with their great ideas of how to teach love and compassion and remove hatred from people’s mind. Since this is the party of peace lovers so there is going to be a lot of fun, music and food to suit everyone’s taste.  In the end we all will sing a song,

‘One Song’

of love, compassion , compatibility and peace.

 

 ‘One Song’- ‘Rumi’

Every war and every conflict between human beings
has happened because of some disagreement about names.

It is such an unnecessary foolishness,
because just beyond the arguing
there is a long table of companionship
set and waiting for us to sit down.

What is praised is one, so the praise is one too,
many jugs being poured into a huge basin.
All religions, all this singing, one song.
The differences are just illusion and vanity.
Sunlight looks a little different on this wall
than it does on that wall
and a lot different on this other one,
but it is still one light.

We have borrowed these clothes,
these time-and-space personalities,
from a light, and when we praise,
we are pouring them back in.

Optimist

Six years old Grandson,  whose both feet had been amputated,  when he was four had long back  accepted his disability and tried to be  always happy lest grandma becomes sad, suddenly requested his grandma-’ I want  shoes ! ‘
Grandma, who was taking him for a ride on his wheel chair,  looked sadly at him.
‘ Don’t look so sad dear, I want them for my best friend, he cannot buy shoes and cannot play without them,’ said he.
Grandma lovingly  showered blessings on him.
He laughed ‘ One day, with your blessings  I am going to  climb Mount Everest like ‘Tom Whitekar‘ and ‘Arunima Sinhama ‘ .

( Tom Whittaker (born 1948 in York) was the first disabled person to climb to the summit of Mount Everest.[1]

Whittaker’s right foot needed to be amputated following a car accident in 1979. Following this serious accident, he regained his strength and continued climbing.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tom_Whittaker_%28mountaineer%29

Arunima “Sonu” Sinha (born 1988) is the first female amputee to climb Mount Everest.[1] She is also the first Indian amputee to climb Mount Everest.[2][3]

She was a national level volleyball player who was pushed out of a running train by thieves in 2011 while resisting them. One of her legs had to be amputated below the knee as a result.

A fine quote from ‘ Healing into Wholeness

 

“Give everyone whose life you touch feel worthy. Give everyone a

sense of their own worthiness as a person, a sense of the true

wonder of who they are. Give this gift and you will heal the

world”. Neal Donald Walsch

 

If we can heal the world, peace will automatically follow.

The sea does not reward those who are too anxious, too greedy, or too impatient. One should lie empty, open, choiceless as a beach – waiting for a gift from the sea.

I would like to say to people, open your eyes and find beauty where you normally don’t expect it.
