A mail to me this morning made me stop and smile and tap into gratitude with all my heart.
It was from my reader and friend now over the years, who has been extremely supportive of my journey through the vision and verses.
A share of kindness and appreciation can be the spring well of creativity. A few lines in dedication to this kind and caring soul….
My dear patron,
Your compliments inspire me on my path
Your words encourage & your belief supports
Recently you asked about my art, vision and verse …
You asked me, where I create from
You asked me, how long it takes to form.
You asked me from where warmth and positivity spring forth in my words.
Life they say is the best teacher guide and mentor
Perhaps in the siftings of life and living
The colours of my art emerge
Perhaps the sounds of words felt deep within
I sense again in the verses I write
Perhaps the blow of incessant hot and cold winds of changes
Mellow my words with moderation
Words are powerful I deeply believe
As I had written somewhere earlier too
In faith hope and trust
I care to send out my thoughts
That they may shift the perspectives
Of another’s thought to turn to the positive.
That they may bring the very same contentment
in the reading and sensing
to awaken the spirit and let their soul shine
With love and gratitude
in the realisation of all that is.
That I feel deep within.
Beauty of it all is
That life continues
To be a great impactor
In the winds of changes
There is much to understand and know
New learnings new knowings
That teach as they are happening the now.
The trick is to be open
and allow it all in the flow
To assimilate and acknowledge
This wealth of wisdom between you & me.
So I thank your questions here to me
As it awakens my spirit now to
Brave new frontiers of creativity
But with deep responsibility.
Thank you for the pause in my thoughts
You invoke with your caring query.
Significance of creative endeavours
Arise first from curiosity and concern
That propels new paths and purpose…
In this journey of life and living.
