Breakthrough!

ImageCredit to unknown photographer

Strength in the grounding

Here is a truly powerful image

Speaking volumes without a word.

Depicting the power of nature

Breaking through a rock…

Life cannot be undermined

It finds a way to flourish

Nature has a way of nurturing itself

To survive against all odds.

The strength of the spirit

The intention of the soul

Courses through its veins

Until it finds a path to grow

Rooting itself steadfastly

Its grounding is its strength

Nourishing the life

To stay centered .

And grow it does and how…

Spring through summer

Come rain or shine

No autumn can last too long …

As that seemingly leafless tree

Springs forth a hopeful bloom

Sharing the fruits of life and living.

As the seasons change….

Breakthrough are a way of being

Course correcting itself no matter

Finding its bearing in full bloom

Nature is meant to thrive!

Illusions in the Reflections

Reflections in the stillness

On a patch of water

Reflections of sunlight

On a passing cloud

Reflecting colours

We humans have named…

The truth of clarity

Is the freedom in the uncertain

What seems to be, may not be

What is, may be not

What is apparent, may be invisible

What is assumption, may become a contradiction

Or simply delusions of our own imagination.

Or simply a clarity of illusions in the reflections.

Savvy

Was watching the reflections of sunlight dancing on this patch of water on the window sill of my terrace one evening. I was mesmerized by the fleeting cloud it had captured and its amazing colours that held my fancy for a long while…

An Expression Of Manifestation.

Image credits: Fb Group Unique Trees

Saw this photo on a Fb group share and I couldn’t help pause and wonder about this expression in manifestation.

How beautifully it has orchestrated its creation

How artfully the artistry of photography has captured this brilliance of creation.

Every where we see nature emotes in magnificent awe-inspiring ways, the wonders of creation… in the trees, be it in a little leaf , a bud, in aging bark & trunk of trees , in the cloud paintings up above in the canvas of the sky or even in the dance of the waves in the sea…🙏

Heart of Art

Consciously or otherwise,

whether it is…
In Steering the words that flow, toward a larger purpose.
In Channelling the ideas that spring forth
In Creating artworks with a splattering of colours

Art draws expressions from wonder
Art thrives in the heart of the being.
Art flows through in movement & solitude…

When the he(art) speaks, the artist listens
For Art is life and living an art.

Illusions & Reality


What is illusory ?
What is reality?
What is I and what is you?
Both so intermingled in the intersection.

Creating new perceptions
In the making of reality
Charting through illusions
Decoding the delusions…


Of assumptions of the invisible
Of judgements of the  intangible
Of connections in the uncertainty
Virtual seems true & truth virtual.

Between the apparent realities
Diminish the blurry lines of truth
Many lives are lived, in one life
Or perhaps there are many lives after all!

Mystic of life

A dear friend shared this picture on social Media and it left me contemplating…

We are born to connect

In one way or other

For a purpose larger

Than our individual self

There is light that we have

That we ourselves may not know

The potential of, that manifests

To serve at the right time.

There is always a reason

For this now, so rise above despair

And look onward and upward

The way is forward in faith

To live and help heal some more.

No wonder its said ‘Hands that help

Is holier than lips that pray…’

We are carriers of hope

That pass on for posterity

Our life is intricately weaved

In every moment of our being

Through the echelons of time

For a reason, we may or never know

Such is the ‘Mystic of life’

In all its brilliant manifestations.

Attitude of Gratitude

Gratitude is a beautiful attitude.

Both in the giver and receiver.

There is certain change of heart

Life evolves for the better.

Yes how beautiful it is

When we begin and end the day

With the grace of heartfelt gratitude!

There is a pool

I received this beautiful forward years ago that I cherish. And I so enjoy seeing it every once in a while.

A few musings…

There is a pool
I often sit by
with my thoughts
In fact all of me.

Its a pool that inspires
Creativity in collaboration
Its a pool that invites
Connections in association.

A pool of collectives
That move me beyond
The rut of mediocrity
To an all expansive space.

A pool of equanimity
That keeps me balanced
A pool centered inside
That aligns it all to the core.

A pool is an interesting place, as it is allowing yet contained.The circle of thoughts, in a pool allow space of contemplation.

Without the hurry and haste, to sense the moment as it is.

Every now and then choose to sit with/by your own pool of peace sensing the peace you already have.

Dancing Lights!

I was a little kid when I first came across this beautiful word Aurora …and then I read about the Polar Lights and was truly fascinated.
Back then I read as much as I could find in books before the age of the internet.

For many of us so far away from the poles this is often impossible to imagine beyond a blue sky… let alone the dancing lights.

Resharing this poem which is a dedication to Nature’s dance in the sky… all in the depth of my awe & fascination.

Spectre of brilliance
An opera in the sky
A dance of dazzling lights
Of colours flashing through.

Luminescent beyond compare
Magical spectacle of brilliance in the flow
An undulating waltz in the yonder
An unveiling of earth’s myriad wonders.

Such an ethereal vision
Mystical northern lights
Unbelievable, unforgettable
Awesomeness beyond mere words.

Razors Edge

On the razors edge, there is poignant elegance

Beautiful poise, precariously in balance

Amidst the fury of the fire raging beneath

She stand resolute in her calmth

Not helpless but in knowing nature’s ways

That in time, all is well back to base.

Beauty on the outside burns off into the ember

Leaving an ashen pile of dust to remember.

Yet deluding the fury in being uprooted

In the strength of the grounding firmly rooted

Leaving an evergreen picture of poise

She has that stoic stance of grace.

A pose of composure on destiny’s face

In spite of a life abruptly denied

She is the beauty of grace personified!

Waltz of the lights

Waltz of lights on the water….

Down the memory lane

A boat, a river, and I.

A canal trip on the River Reie

Beautiful Bruges at night

Shimmering lights

Dancing on water

Ever so gently

Creating a moment

Worth a capture!

Rainbow Of Hope

When the world wakes up to a day
To see the harmony of existence
Exemplified in a rainbow
The world will change…

When the world connects from the heart in empathy
Than with mere words
Then those connects will transform the world 🌎

The world is changing itself
But old habits die hard
Sad truth is all thats wrong with the world today is man-made.

Beyond the darkness is light
Beyond fear and doubts
Lies possibilities in hope
All is meant to be well.

Whats your focus on?

Choose to focus on building than breaking

Choose to generate than disintegrate

Choose to see the hope than hopelessness.

Where and what is your focus on?

Focus on good choices,

As you clarify your intentions

In appreciation than criticism

You begin building bridges

Of hope in possibilities

You create hope than insecurities

Your focused positive approach

Yields you to do more, much much more!

Magic of Christmas

Christmas Memories

Vibrant hues of Christmas Colors in all its vividity!

Joyful Christmas Memories indeed! Sharing the cheer and goodwill…

The Antwerpen Christmas Market is spread out over several streets and squares lighting up the entire historical centre of Antwerp beautifully into a huge and happening zone to stroll around in…Glowing in the night!
Beating the winters chill
Sitting by warm fire pits…
Sipping hot glühwein!And the mistletoe?
Well its no small branch
But a giant one indeed!
Fit for all the crowd that gather under
Just to share the Christmas cheer!

Power of Ripples

On Kindness



A ripple of kindness goes a long long way….


One little  movement from the heart
One tiny step to help
One single act in compassion
One bit of genuine care

Have the propensity to travel far
And influence many to kind deeds.
That await  for a sign somewhere
Remember the power of the ripples.
