Nest- The Daily Post

Posted on

Nest- The Daily Post

Come quickly with me lest the sun sinks into the luring west!

So there’s light to see where an eagle built its lofty nest.

Daring, youthful thinking slipped into this proud bird’s brain.

Or was it confident trust resting in its regal veins.

You see the tree the eagle chose its days in which to live

Looks old and weak and gnarled, like naught it ere could give.

You may be the mighty eagle.

You may be the worn out tree.

No matter what your role is here.

There is still a need for thee.

A Month of Mini Writing Challenges 2017-Day 23

Write a poem about an alien.  Any length.

Limerick- An Alien

When in my life  I haven’t seen an alien 

How can I write a poem about an alien 

Once I saw it in a movie

It looked funny but not loony

It looked intelligent and not barbarian

A Month of Mini Writing Challenges 2017-Day 20

 Write a poem in under 20 lines inspired by a myth, legend or fairy tale.

 

Once upon a time
to live happily ever after
People used to induce in life
Love and lots of laughter
( Now they fight on minor issues)
Inspired by shortest fairy tale by D.M.Conner
Once upon a time,
in a land far away,
they lived happily ever after!
The End.

Harmonize- The Daily Post

We were poles apart

So different in looks and choices

Different were our views and habits

Still, we were

Destined to come together

In the name of  love and friendship

We took a leap of Faith

Sometimes going seemed tough

But 

Compassion and compatibility

Some compromises 

Our ability to agree to disagree on some matters

Giving space to each other do whatever we like

Made us bond together

And God blended and blessed us

To harmonize the song of our life

A Month of Mini Writing Challenges

A Month of Mini Writing Challenges

I stumbled upon this challenge very late. It is already 27th Sep.

The theme is –

  • Day 27 – Write a poem inspired by the theme of “home” in less than 10 lines.

Home Sweet Home

Home is where the heart is

The heart is where the love is

Love is where the compassion is

Compassion is where the understanding is

Understanding is where the friendship is

Friendship is where the compatibility is.

When all these make 

The four walls and the roof

Then there a sweet home is.

Fight

Success in life

Is all about

To know

The right time to fight

And the right time

To take a flight

The Daily Post- Inevitable

Posted on

Inevitable

Inevitable is

Failing and falling

Inevitable is

Life and death

Inevitable is

Faults and failures

Inevitable is

Disappointments

But never give up

Faith, courage and 

Dedication

As giving up is a sin

And an obstacle

In your path to win

The daily Post- Longing

Posted on

Longing

What do I long for?

Love? Friendship? Company of people? Peace?

Sometimes I feel very lonely

And the more lonely I feel

the more lonely I want to be

I don’t want to talk to anyone

Don’t want to mix with people

I just want to dwell in my gloominess,

Submerge in my sorrows 

No materialistic pleasure can calm me

Can give me peace

So what is it I want?

Who can understand?

How I’m feeling

What I’m feeling

What I’m longing for

Perhaps I yearn for that great comfort, calmness, peace, delight? 

I felt when I was in my mother’s lap

Enchant Your Everyday- Light

Posted on

 

Enchanting my everyday

by allowing the light of knowledge

to enter every nook and corner of my mind and heart

Let there be no darkness, no negativity

only light of love, peace,

compassion and understanding

shall dwell in my mind

let there be full understanding that

we are all kindred soul

‘ Faith in Almighty

Connects us with each other

We all are soul mates’

 

Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light. –Albus Dumbledore

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.”
― Martin Luther King Jr.A Testament of Hope: The Essential Writings 
Give light, and the darkness will disappear of itself. (Desiderius Erasmus)

 

 

Light the Lamp of Thy Love :

In my house, with Thine own hands,
Light the lamp of Thy love!
Thy transmuting lamp entrancing,
Wondrous are its rays.
Change my darkness to Thy light, Lord!
Change my darkness to Thy light.
And my evil into good.
Touch me but once and I will change,
All my clay into Thy gold
All the sense lamps that I did light
Sooted into worries
Sitting at the door of my soul,
Light Thy resurrecting lamp!

~Rabindranath Tagore

Flight

Enchant Your Everyday: A Month of Loving the World

Day 16- Flight

God has not given me wings

perhaps it was never intended that I fly
but to my mind
were given thousands of wings
to fly above the clouds
to discover new lands
to never sit still in one place
however, may I  try
with the mind of a wanderer
and the body tied to the earth
I make my life enchanting
by not to take a flight
when I see others in a plight
~ Indira
