Caged Birds 



I stand here by my window looking outwards

In a house across the street are pairs of newly caged birds

Parrots , sparrows and some fancy exotic birds all in a single cage

I knew in that tiny contraption, they were filled with ultimate rage

Maybe their wings were cropped and space scarce

I have seen their movements change in due course

They’re a restless lot , their struggles relentless

But their desire to fly is boundless

To the owners, they are just beautiful pets

A sense of ownership , something to possess I guess

But to these birds, this is sheer hell

How in happiness would they possibly dwell?

Birds are natural dancers

And they are such graceful prancers

In fact everything alive is meant to move

To be nourished in frredom for it to grow

it was never meant to be still and stuck in tiny places

That is why God made this world so huge with expansive spaces

It was meant to fly free

It was meant to be.

It seeks fulfillment as it flies

Across the sky and watch the world go by

I hear their songs of sadness as they chirp everyday

They aren’t singing tunes of hope, life for them is bleak and grey

Its more a woeful cacophony than a melody

Perhaps as the time goes by, they will learn to live by

And accept their new surroundings

But alas what a waste of wings

If only they hear the plight of these hapless birds

And sense the sounds of silence, what a waste of life’s joy in flight

Cos their clipped wings can never flap in delight…

Whose loss is it anyway?

Is what the world might indifferently say

And perhaps justify as karmic cycle being repaid

Alas! Isn’t another vicious cycle being relaid?

Sharing these reflections written a year ago when I was living in the city of Mumbai where hearts are big but living spaces small like any other bustling city. I have moved on to a much greener city and today it is truly a blessing that my terrace opens out to a protected patch of forestland and I often find myself refreshingly awakened early morning, hearing the cheer of the chirping birds .

 On a rainy day I  can often find a peacock perched happily on the branch of the nearby trees.  Seeing the joy in the flight of these birds and at  times getting lucky to catch a sight of delightful murmuring of birds in the horizon  definitely makes my evenings truly enthralling. Savvy

Wonder of You!

       Wonder of You! A Visual Verse By Savvy Raj


Have you ever wondered about the divinity of the Creator?

In the blade of grass as much as the man.

The atoms arranged to efficiency

With a difference of the sheath but with a life essentially.

Designer Magnifique! Beyond knowledge beyond wisdom.

Source code of life itself … Creator who created you?

Dawn to dusk…Desire to deliverance

Attribution to Retribution

Beyond time… beyond Eternal

Tireless and Relentless,

Of Passion at play!

Simple and Sublime, patience so humbling.

Ultimate Designer and Creator of Souls

Root to Pinnacle

Salutes of Gratitude!

Bows in Reverence,

Of the ubiquitous omnipresence!!!

A Waltz with Nature


Image Courtesy Google Search

An invitation to dance
with nature in all its glory…
Connect to its abundance
And reveal its many a untold story!

Embrace its enchanting greenery
Relate to its healing ways
Regale in the beauty of the scenery
Rejoice in every swing and sway…

In these blissful  interconnects
Realising its infinite wealth
Acknowledging the pure energy that emnates
Through every conscious breath!

Savvy Raj

P.S The above picture speaks to me to treasure and respect  the beauty of nature  in all its glorious hues…

And in the crispness of  morning and the warmth of sun kissed light

In a garden so charming a dancing heart takes flight…’Savvy

Energy in the Synergy!


A Sense of it all!

I am because you are & we are because they are ...

Let us  all care to value the strength of the interconnects in the interdependence.

Sense of Infinity

I stand here amidst the stillness of trees

Gazing up at the enchanting evening sky

I watch the crimson sky fade into oblivion

Hail the twinkling stars sparkling like diamonds in array

Enshrouded in the misty cape of pink and blue sky.

Even as these autumn trees play their part

In bringing the vision closer home

Captured in their silhouettes

Is magic in the sky

And the mystic of the forest

Amidst it all there is delight that dumbfounds.

Of awe and amazement and of wonder in the whimsical

But most of all, is the connect to this now

In just sensing the beauty of this one moment in infinity.

 Simplicity Paradox

Are we  actually simplifying complexities or complicating simplicity?

Simplicity dwells in the complexity

And complexity is just tangled simplicity

In the designers intelligence

Both dance hand in hand

The meaning we choose to perceive

The connect we choose to establish

The intention we choose to deduce

At a point in time

Can make it irrefutably simple

Or irrefutably complex in the understanding

The Simple truth holds all the complex potential

In an untangled arrangement

The very arrangement is a fodder for imagination

For continuity in ingenuity

In the momentumn of thoughts

The complex gives birth

To new pathways in the patterns

Promoting in the propelling

A curiousity in exploration

Of simplifying the confounding complexities.

History is replete with stories

Of complicating the simple truth

Of the being …in the boggling for answers

In refuting and regelating

Our beautiful ball of blue

This Circle of nature was assumed

Once as square in shifting  perspectives

Meaning perceived in perspective dimensions 

Unfolding with the understanding of that era

Moving on in time to deconstruct the construction

Of breaking down codes of assumption

Of restructuring in the resurrection

Of recognition and the refuting

To understanding the circles of yin and yang

The dance of polarity

The duality of nature

The death and the birth

As part of the circle of oneness

Of life and living .

Simple resides in the complexities

Complex is just simplicity turned upside down

Perhaps as humankind increased in numbers

The simple was to profound

To answer the multitude of mulling thoughts

In different directions

Due to the innate nature of man

To wonder in awe

And thus the simple no longer seemed simple

To solve the emerging enigmas

Delving into the simple

Intelligent design was questioned

In Scientific temperment

In philosophical propositions

Until creativity creates connections

And new expressions in the exploration.

To deduce deduct and denote

Infinite patterns of potential

Making sense of of uniqueness in the self similarity

As the irrefutable simpliity of it all.

In the search for answers

To simplify the complex

Or to complicate the simple

Many paths present itself

Every path is infinite in possibilities

The question is are we ready to walk the path.

And what we evolve into while walking the path of choice?


In search for simple truths we encounter the magnitude of complexities underlying the simplicity . Simplicity elegantly serves itself but the paradox of simplicity is in the complexities of finding the meaning and accepting such simplicity  as the ultimate truth of the being. Savvy Raj
