Dance as you are.

Dance even it’s in your own heart

Dance with all of your being

Dance to flow through in life

Dance to free yourself from unwanted

 

Dance to let go of the pain you feel

Dance to speak your own truth

Dance away your restless thoughts


 

Dance to bond with this now

Dance to share from the heart

Dance often dance from where you are!


Dance …As you are! Just Dance!

In Synchrony

Today I am happy to be sharing both my vision and my verses in synching with the flow… Have enjoyed this process of many learnings in blending my art to merge and emerge along the way… 

I would love to have your feedback on both my painting and poetry.  

 

Presenting My Artwork  Synchrony.

In Synchrony

What is it that powers and energizes our movements?
What calms and eases us in.
All is, in the flow…
Of our breath in this now.

And how it can flow enveloping  and encompassing,
Connecting and complementing each other like an elegant dance!In the inhale and exhale

All is in the learning
To flow and dance with life!
In Synchrony!

The Art of Envisaging

Creativity births and shapes itself through artists, time after time in eternity.

Art is a deeply personal experience and yet quite symbolic to a generation in time.

What today constitutes the Modern & Contemporary Art will soon become relics of the past that tried to catch up on the times.

Here is one such simple artistic vision in recent times that moved a chord in me.

What a particular work of art makes you feel, is more important than what it looks like.

Wouldn’t you agree?

What makes you turn towards an art?

What kind of artworks attract you?

Zen state

When words propose in a flow
That is persuading and all pervading
No matter the rhyme or form
It becomes poetry
Creating a zen like feeling
That makes you want to be
In that state of awareness
Inspite of knowing
Everything moves on…

Have you ever been enticed by the eloquence of words?

Personally I have many favorites

But these profound words by Gibran deeply impacted me…
Your children are not your children. They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself.

Infact all the lines that follow are equally poignant as well as profound.

So much wisdom in those words for life and living.

Which is your favorite piece of poetry?
Do your remember those verses vividly ?

Would love to know!

Nuances of expressions

Sometimes art simply shapes up in the nuances of expression.

Every artistic expression

Speaks of a certain experience

Of a narrative from a perspective

That can both personal or impersonal.

Yet it deeply connects the art & artist.

In those unique circumstances

That may birth the flow & the shaping.

And when the art becomes a spectacle.

The spectator interpretations

Can be equally enigmatic

As much as deeply interconnected.

All in the nuances of the artistic expression.

What did you see first?

I came across this arresting piece of artistry

That evokes many emotions…

This is a beautiful gem of a sculpture.

What did you see in this artwork first?

There are two birds depicted by this amazing artist.

Which bird caught your eye first?

For me it was the lustre in wings of the bird on top that caught my eye .

What about you?

Any contemplations on this?

Do share!

Art knows better

abstract art artist artistic

Art feels complete for the artist
When there is a contentment
From within that this is enough!
And that the expression is fulfilled

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

While the artists feels contentment
For the viewer, it is a beginning
Of endless possibilities
For each thinking is unique

art artistic bright color

Juxtaposed between the artist and the admirer
Is the art which is created
Out of a thought and intention
In colours and hues
In texture and design
Unparalleled in its very uniqueness

Awaiting another interpretation
Another contemplation
Sharing inspiration for more creativity
Sharing perspectives in the envisioning

Art knows better,
To simply be as it evokes emotions
In its journey to fulfill itself
And that is how it completes itself.

Art speaks

Art speaks…
When does the artist know the art is complete?
Is there something as complete for an artist at all?
For art evokes endless possibilities in creativity…💙

Reciprocity

 


Good writings have the power to change your mood, from gloomy to happy, inspire, and motivate.
Without readers, the writings however good, are like the beautiful moon shining over a desert.
Though the writers, may write for self-expression, the appreciation of a reader motivates them to create more.
They both are complimenting each other.
If good writing makes even one reader happy the writing has found its purpose.

Anjana

These are a few words from my mother’s reflections on Writing and Reading which I found deeply inspiring. I take this opportunity to offer my sincere appreciation and gratitude to all my readers for after all there is no writer without a reader.

Happy Fathers Day! God Bless Dads!

This is one of those moments when writing and sharing stories from our lives bring us a deep sense of connection… with our readers and ourselves in gratitude for the learnings. And there is that sense of magic sensed in our hearts which evokes poignant feeling of fond memories of the people that are attached to it.

Common sense

Common sense

In life and living simply knowing when to say, share, pause, or even stop is an art of mindful living.
Just as you may know to seize an opportunity. Sometimes even good relationships are lost because of sharing unsolicited advice & information.
So it is important to see subtle indifference to glaring signs of disinterest and change this way of dealing with people especially with customers.

 

Pesky Habit of Pushing Forwards.

On the subject of Forwards especially through WhatsApp, all of us may have been having this kind of meaningless forwards come our way from acquaintances. Some of them sharing every kind of isms there is! So here are words that need to be said. From a customer
To all who share endless forwards
A checkpoint in goodwill.
Every WhatsApp forward can be disturbing or distracting for another no matter the content.
Please remember to think twice before polluting an already crowded cyberspace.
There is enough knowledge out there to find if one wants to, anything at all!
In business, sometimes clients are lost because of these unsolicited shares. If you find that a client is not responding to your share by acknowledging it, then please discontinue bombarding them with your forwards every day.
Perhaps it will help save you a client. 😇Instead, how about being creative and enterprising instead? Why not write a blog, express and share your heart away. Those who identify will always check in. And you would be only happier for you will feel it’s worth your while.
At least you will have it all together in one place.

Have you had experiences of endless forwards coming your way?
How do you manage it?
Do you feel overwhelmed or even delete it without opening it?
Do you feel bombarded with all kinds of unsolicited forwards every time? Do share your views on this.

Practice For Life

The Platform of Life.

Every life births its path
Life teaches to evolve itself
Life trains and tests us along the way
The path of life is our platform.
The power of choice
Rests with us
To practice, the lessons learned
In this platform of life.

Power of Practice

Our thoughts words deeds
Can become mindful in time
All it needs is practice.
And more practice.

If you wish to think good: Practice
If you wish to do good: Practice
If you wish to speak well: Practice
If you wish to cultivate good: Practice

On Goodwill & Gratitude

Our life is simple or complex
As we care to think of it
For no matter, the state of life
We can care to see beyond ourselves
There is a world that survives
On the fringes of existence
The stark truths deliver us
A reality bite of how privileged we are.

Wherever we are in this world
If we are alive and well
If we have a roof on our head
And sustenance to be nourished
We should consider ourselves blessed
And choose to care from our heart
As life can be lonely & feel a little lost.

There is much going on around
That we cannot solve
But often enough
There is much one can do…

All it takes is a few words
To make another’s day
Giving and sharing goodwill
A kind word, a genuine smile
In hope and trust.
To leave the world in a better place.

The truth of life is that it challenges
Every minute of our now
In one way or the other
But then instead of seeking more
What if we began living with gratitude
Learning to enjoy this now as it is
Living beyond simply existing.
Then perhaps we can truly say
We are alive to the life in us.
Experiencing life in all dimensions.

Who is an underdog?

Meet Wiggles Our Lionheart Lhasa❤

Animal Rights Awareness

Yes adopt an underdog
But by no means think
That of some sad brown little creature
They come in all shapes and sizes.

Think no less of them
For they are so much more
For they have had it truly tough
Life has been challenging enough.

Resilience and tolerance
Is in their bones
But love is flowing all the same
Through their beautiful hearts.

Some are amazingly warm and loving

Some are fearful & some too friendly
And some a vision of cuteness but all just simply abandoned.
Some are street dogs, with the highest immunity.
Some are just born in a little special way
They are all just as beautiful and have a right to be
Like you or me.

Meet The Happy Faced ‘Buddy ‘of Wiggles.

Meet The Happy Faced ‘Buddy ‘of Wiggles.

There are many that are sadly discarded
By inhuman puppy mills.
Created in the most unethical ways
How can one life torture another so! The bane of humanity
That sees no hope for them.
For they are apparently imperfect
In some odd little way. They may not be the strongest
Or the most beautiful
But that’s what makes them special
Just the way they are!

Meet Tia Our Black&white Beauty

Make some space in your heart
Adopt a dog that needs a home
Every dog gives unconditional love
Reach out your hands for a paw.

Choose to adopt a dog with love.
Pleases don’t buy, you are simply encouraging
This heart-wrenching trade and trafficking
Of million innocent hapless little lives. So much cruelty by so-called human
Please think before you join in.

I implore you to not ask
For a pet of a particular shape color or size or breed. There are many puppies culled because of your unethical desires.
Respect creation and sustain this world
choose to love and adopt a pet.
Take a step to change one life today!
