Pride

Posted on

Life is a mixed bag of
hopes and disappointments
dreams and realities
victories and defeats
triumphs and disasters
sometimes you win
sometimes you lose
sometimes you have to  run against the tide
sometimes you have to run with the tide
make compromises
don’t lose your heart
don’t complain
count your blessings
be proud of what you have achieved
keep your composure
spine stretched
shoulders straight
heart full of gratitude
head held with pride

~ Indira

Leap Of Faith

Posted on

We were poles apart

Destined to come together

In the name of  love and friendship

We took leap of Faith

Sometimes our paths were dark

Sometimes they were bright

Our compassion and compatibility

Made us bond together

And God set everything right

Compatibility at its best

Compatibility at its best

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Metal

” What metal your heart is made of

If not melts with others plight

Instead of helping those

Who are suffering

In the name of religion

You choose to fight ”

(  Indira )

Cee says – show off some of your own photos that highlight items made out of metal .So here are they-

A Knock On The Door

Posted on

Christmas around the corner

The sweet smell of cake hovering around

Old couple 

Confined in a room

Holding hands 

Comforting each other

Remembering the old golden busy days

Of partying with children and relatives

Now everyone busy with their own life

 Old couple

 Forlorn

 Depression setting in

 Still

Trying to count their blessings

 Waiting anxiously

With a little hope in their heart

For a knock on the door

Celebrate, enjoy and party hard

But spare a thought for the lonely ones

Please don’t forget to visit them.

 

Take A Break

Posted on

When there is unrest or apprehension
When there is, in life a lot of tension
Take a break and retrospect.
When you overworked and very tired
When you are stuck in an old routine
Take a break and get a good rest.
When there are dissatisfaction and no fun in life
You think life is taking you for a ride
Take a break and meditate.

 

( My advice ” Take a Break ” was taken, very seriously and literally by my son.)

Weekly Photo Challenge: Renewal

Small disagreements

Cannot break the bond of

Love and friendship

Renewal is on the card

Forgive and forget

All the differences

Shake hands

Renew friendship

And party hard

Innocence

Posted on

Only children can teach us

Love without affectation

Trust without calculation

Friendship without discrimination

As their innocence knows

No artificiality and manipulation

 

 

Silence is golden- sometimes

Why it is that
foolish people are compared with donkey
and not with
cow, zebra, giraffe or monkey
methinks,
the answer is simple
as you may say
both don’t know
when to keep mum and when to bray.
( No offense intended for donkeys, they are lovely and hard-working. They are just stubborn, single-minded and will go to extreme lengths to get what they want, especially when someone indicates “No, you can’t have this. “)

Introspection

Posted on

sometimes a gesture of someone
starts the introspection
someone inside you asks,

did you try  hard to your success
or to get what you did dream
or got tired and gave in the midway
or blamed your stars
or cursed your luck
and let your dreams shatter away.

Hope you are the lucky one who can say
I gave my 100 percent
tried my best
and never faltered away.

 

Music

Posted on

“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.” ― Plato

Music is life, music is therapy,
Music can make everyone happy,
Music can drive  woes away,
Music can drive illness away,
If you don’t believe me,
and  need some proof,
just ask my buddies,
dear meow and woof.
They say,
sing, sing, sing all the day
sing,  sing, sing all the way
Sing in the day sing in the night
sing in the darkness sing in the light
sing when you are sad,

sing when you are happy
sing when your mood is snappy
singing just not drives ills away
singing drives the sorrows away
sing when alone, sing when together
sing when it is good or bad weather
sing in fright sing in delight,
sing songs together and never ever fight
