The Daily Post-Blank

Posted on


My mind goes blank

in depression I sank

I search for

strength, courage and a straw

to swim across this phase

a wave of hope

comes searching for me

it brings not a straw

but a sturdy plank

Now whatever comes

I am ready to face

In gratitude

I pray and thank


Happiness is…

Posted on

happiness is looking into the innocent, cheerful, smiling eyes.

Sitting under a tree at, its trunk keeping my back straight. Weather is very pleasant, cloudy , cool breeze, giving a hint of rain. I’m all alone , enjoying the surrounding, full of trees.

There comes a dog . Looks at my face. Perhaps for any sign of like or dislike. Founds agreeable. Come close hesitantly. Sniffs my feet,then hurriedly licks my feet and runs away. Comes back again. This time more confident. Wags its tail, again licks my feet and goes away.

Suddenly comes a squirrel, stripped, cute, just 4 inches away from me. Looks at my eyes. I’m sitting very still. Not to frighten it away. We are both looking at each other. It takes me as a statue, perhaps. I can’t keep long without blinking. I blink. The spell is broken. It runs away.

This is the first time a squirrel has come so close. I feel sorry. I could not take its photograph but I’m happy,very happy.

It takes so little to be happy.

The Daily Post- Survival


old rule for survival was
the survival of the fittest
new rule of survival is
 the survival of the richest,
survival of the shrewdest
survival of the wickedest
and the survival of those who know
when they can’t change the direction of the wind,
then adjust the sails to reach the destination.

The Daily Post- Abandoned

Abandon negativity forcefully
embrace positivity with whole heart
though sometimes it may seem impossible
but practice will make you smart
