Emotions & Expressions

Small Steps

Yesterday I did the prep, Today I took a few step(s). Tomorrow I will walk, Day after I will run and talk. Growth happens in increments, Not on commands or sentiments. We thrive at different place and pace, Life is no contest or race.. From a seed to sapling to tree, Germination cannot be rushed,…

Sad days

Some days are just sad, Seems nothing can be done or had, Despite best effort to not feel bad, Things don’t work in direction of glad. Are those times just to be endured? Hoping clouds clear, equanimity restored, Sadness and sorrow cured, And normalcy implored. Sadness imparts vital life lesson, Like power of slowing down…

High Hill

The hill was high. Her spirit higher. The sea was deep, Her dreams deeper. The task was tough, Her persistence tougher. Sounds of distractions loud, Music of her dreams louder. Work was over whelming, The village encouraging. The pain was scathing, Her endurance towering. Standing on cross road(s), Decisions determine destiny profound. Choices surround, Attractions…

Life revolves around told and heard tales, Our biases adding color without fail. A story can have varied flavor, Like multiple tastes to slowly savor. So many tales to share and hear, Narrations changing from mouth to ear. Molded by observation and interpretation, Contoured with varying perception. Stories continuously change version, Of the same event,…

I like to retrospect year going by’s reels, Replay both facts and feels, Varied stages hold different appeal, Some truths slowly simmer and reveal. All actions…

Sitting with Thoughts

What did you do today? I sat with my thoughts. My inquirer asks-“what?” Then, a sly smile and naught. Some ask- how can you love to be with yourself? I wonder-why is it tough to be with oneself? My thoughts are great company. Take me on old and new journey. Is it unusual to enjoy…

Thanksgiving

Thanks for this life, For all that has been rife, Thanks for the lessons, Without them, I would not be this person. Feeling gratitude is not tough, Once we look beyond the rough. Roses too come with thorn, Challenges in life are to be borne, Some days will be fast, others-slow, Some bring contentment, others…

Maturity

Is maturity, a gain of perspective? Does it mean-more objective? Less reactive. More introspective. Do we finally begin hearing more and speaking less, Caring not just for outer, but how we insides dress. Can we casual comments and actions ignore? And not let every word or action, harbor, linger or store. Do we become more…
