A Beautiful Blessed Day!

Every morning is a proof
Of another shift in her axis
By our mother earth.

We are wiser by a day
After each and every night
To emerge anew at dawn.

Let our dawn spring forth in freshness
Of our spirit for living life well.
Let us discard the spurious.

Let us work with empathy for nature
Respectful of their presence in our lives.
For we are made of the very elements of nature.

Nature is in each of us.
Earth wind fire and water and space…
We are a force of nature.

Let us move with care
Let us proceed with dignity
And never take ourselves for granted.

Let us recognize the infinite intelligence
Bestowed in our being by nature
Let us be the best expression of our being.

As we move closer to our authenticity.
We will resonate to the truth of our life .
We will move closer to the purpose of being.

A beautiful blessed day to you all!

On Happiness




A beautifully expressed sentiment.

Happiness is hard to find if you go searching  but if you choose to create a moment  of happiness for one another you have made the moment  happy.

Keep sharing & spreading happiness
Keep sensing the happiness in you.

On Letting Go

“To be truly happy and contented, you must let go of what it means to be happy or content.” – Confucius

What is so difficult about the letting go?

Is it the fear of not being able to have it again when you need it most?

Or is it about the holding on to memories that were?

Or is it the attachment to things that is most difficult to release?

When we realize how dispensable we are and how transient is our being…

We will begin to see the world with a fresh pair of eyes.

We will know, nothing is given

Neither our lives nor our nature

Every manifestation must evolve

To another state in the flow

Then we may perhaps be able

To accept letting go as part of the flow!

Your Three Words

Your Three Words…

These last 3 days of sharing my artworks has been quite an enjoyable experience. It has opened up new vistas of thoughts in envisioning.

My Painting on Day 3 was titled :

The Spirit of Dance

Many of your Word interpretations were quite in synch with it.

Wanted to reflect the simple joy of dance movements in the freedom of being, each as unique as the dancer.

Thoroughly enjoyed reading and responding to each of your creative responses for all three of my artworks.🙏🏼

All of your words are truly incredible and so very imaginative.
Thank you so much for joining in this little experiment in creativity.
Hope to share more of my works and continue this series in the future.

Speaking about my artworks that I posted…
All these Artworks are my paintings from back in time that I happened to chance upon again. I wanted to see if they still meant the same to me in time. I then thought of sharing it in a post the way I did, just for the little collaborative creativity and joy in the sharing.

The multitude of meanings in it, for each of you and the interpretations put forth in the responses were truly each a journey in itself.
In these times of lockdowns the world has had time to pause and reflect and has perhaps chosen to engage with varied creative enrichments in much deeper and fulfilling ways.

Do let me know if you enjoyed playing along these last three days as much as I did.😇

Thank you all again for traveling alongside with me and my artworks for the last three days, as we mutually forged new paths of perceptions in the perspectives. 🙏🏼

Hello my dear readers, Every day for three consecutive days I have been sharing one of my own paintings from my Artworks Collection.

Here is my Painting share on Day 3:

Please write the first 3 words that come to mind the moment you see it

Every painting has been shared without the title. I would love to understand what your meaning is for the painting. The next day I will reveal my original title and intentions for the painting.

Lets together see if what I have tried depicting through my painting has reached you. Or better still you may have your own interpretation which I would love to read. Pls do share.

My painting share on Day 2 is

Titled : Vortex

Random impressions in the expression.

Signifying the dance of thoughts in the space creating a vortex through the patterns formed in the dynamics of the flow.

Deeply appreciate the amazing creativity that flowed from all of you for this post.

What was quite unique was how many attributed this to flames and fire . I suppose it had much to do with the color red. It was beautiful to acknowledge that every word you used to describe the painting sets off on a serious of trajectories in contemplation showing the vividity of our unique thoughts.

I look forward to reading your words on today’s artwork.

Must add, absolutely fascinating word interpretations to yesterday’s painting.I appreciate you for playing along and contributing with your interesting word choices. Some of your words have truly made me think again, so thank you for that! Please play on, I look forward to your words to my picture today.

As promised… Day 1: My yesterday’s painting share was titled Faces I ave always enjoyed and love drawing the human face & profile. I created a face in a face and kept shaping the profiles, side by side depicting the many dimensions to the face, as I continued to flow through with it. There is certainly a whole lot of blues depicting the moods and the mind. My interest in drawing the human face also made me write these two poems:

https://www/savvyraj.com/what-makes-a-face-interesting/

https://savvyraj.com/every-face-tells-a-story/

After all there are so many facets to the faces we see around us.

How many faces did you see, I wonder?
