Live Life Lovingly!

Life comes a full circle

23 Comments

Who has not felt ripples
At some point or another
Life comes a full circle
With its curves of ups and downs.

In the course of living
There will be many ups
Where the ego is boosted
And the spirit seems to soar.

And in the same breath
There will be many downs
Of grief despair and loss
Sometimes beyond compare.

As life continues its path
Between the nowhere and somewhere
Between the pain and pleasures
Know there is an art to living.

Call it the wisdom of moderation
To stay clear of tilting in the extremes
Of emotions that manifest
In life and living.

Sense it all, both pain and pleasures
For what is life after all
A little laughter to fill your hearts
And let your tears flow if they must
Just don’t dwell in it for too long…

Move on, learning to flow with life
You are no mountain to stand unmoved
Or stagnant pond collecting debris
You are filled with the wonder of life.

Just like trees, shed your pain
Like dried autumn leaves
Let go of your worries
Allow yourself to flourish again.

You are meant to flow
Like a stream in the river of time
You are meant to grow
And evolve along the way.

Choose to care and share
With your fellow travellers
For each life matters, somehow somewhere
To one and all, along the way!

Savvy

Wrote these verses for someone and anyone who is going through a rough patch.

Hoping for the best and sending in loads of goodwill.

  1. Thank you very much for sharing your beautiful thoughts and words in this poem 🙂

    Yes we are in a school of life and sometimes we receive bad marks, sometimes good marks – all is to increase consciousness, to learn from the good as well as from the bad sides – that this school of life may lead us some day to the “university of life” and beyond…

    Have a great time, my dear friend Savvy
    From heart to heart

  2. Super and brilliant poem Savvy. Yes Life is indeed like a mountain. Some steps are easy to climb during ascent, yet some extremely difficult even when one feels descent is easy. One experiences a gamut of turns some good, some not so pleasant. But overall if one enjoys the journey with smiles and positiveness, it becomes a smooth sailing and along with it we also inspire others to follow suit. The pictures are so apt matching your serene poetry. But then again, it is a beautiful art that you dabble with so effortlessly.

    • I was drawn to your line … ‘even when the descent is easy .. ‘
      We may never know perhaps how our lifes will turn out to be… truly there is much more at play in the cosmic level.
      But what manifests before us in this moment is what we need to handle and we are somehow miraculously equipped by nature even in its trying times to manage these moments.
      Thank you Ashok for taking the time to read and reflect here as well as your kind words of appreciation.

  3. Good morning Savvy!! Perfect post!!!

    And the seasons they go round and round,
    And the painted ponies go up and down,
    We’re all captive on the carousel of time
    We can’t return we can only look behind
    From where we came
    And go ’round and ’round and ’round
    In the circle game.

    Joni Mitchell, “The Circle Game,” from Ladies of the Canyon (1970)
