Giving way for the new!

Yesterday the flower was in full bloom
Filling the senses with unabashed beauty
Today it gently wraps into itself
Knowing it’s deed is done
Letting itself move into the background
Retreating as a way for another to bloom.

There are moments in the sun
For one and all
Such is the circle of life
How gracefully the flower accepts
The truth of life and living
Every flower leaves a lesson behind
As it disappears into the sunset
You are born to bloom
Life life lovingly!

Thankful

To dance is to move with all of you.

To dance is to have hope in the living.

To dance is to feel the spirit of life in the movement.

To dance is to know the value of time.

To dance is to feel the rhythm in the beat.

To dance is to sense the subtlety of life.

To dance is to acknowledge the life in every moment.

I am thankful…to the art of dance ūüíÉ

Energy is omnipresent

In the quantum level
In our cosmic consciousness
Our energies, transforms itself
As a pattern in the making
Charting us along
the evolutionary pathway.

Our imagination is energy
Of the source code
Dancing in all its uniqueness
Yet energy at its core is oneness
For all is interdependence
In the interweaved tapestry
Of life and living.

Collating confounding concepts Conundrum of collectives
Of creative connections into
Coexistence in collaboration

Of potential into the possibilities
Modifying thoughts to morphing ideas
Energy may alter in shape and form
Yet the truth of energy is omnipresence.

Circle of life & living





Life and businesses

Circle of life and living
Nature leaves many lessons
The falling  leaves
Are an excellent metaphor…

Learning to let go
In  hope, trust and faith
Of the balance the circle
Is an indicator of the adaptability.


Business is a big leap of faith
In every business
That has thrived  and survive
Inspite of the changing seasons.



Seeds to a plant
Plant to a tree
Trees begin maturing
Like life is meant to flow….

Buisness too are meant to grow
As the processes are strengthened
Nourishing &nurturing the foundation
Harnessing synergies  in the energies.




There is growth in the momentum.
There are dependences and beliefs
But like the nature of life
Old has to make space for the new…



To flourish and sustain
The seasonal setbacks
And survive the storms
In the winds of changes.






In the blooming and blossoming
There in is the budding of new ideas
Like ideas that flow by nurturing
Life is meant to flow…by nature
Such is the circle of life and living.


These verses came forth after reading¬† a very thoughtful share by my dear friend @Ali Anani , who mentioned rightly so that the post might be of interest¬† to me…. so to him¬† dedicate this post in gratitude ūüôŹ

ARTISTRY OF CREATIVITY ‚Ķ

Sharing one of¬†my musings written¬† way back in time… came across it in my feeds.



To me what is fascinating about the Artistry
in the artist is the path he chooses
to channelizes his Creativity .. ‘

Every artist is unique ….

Working in tandem with his own techinque

Every stroke of the brush guided in the silence of a visual imagery

Marks the stark passion in the heart of divinity

Sculpting and painting the patterns with conviction

With personal care beyond concern or consternation

Blending in the tones and .. while sketching a grass blade

Molding to the hues in every shade ….

Life is a canvas colorful or otherwise

Care to see the value beyond the price…

Life & Living



There is an art of life and living
Be freehearted in giving.

Sense every nuance of this now
Express the love of life in this moment.




Tune in to rhythms playing in life
Like the dancer who dances
Emoting through the movements
Tuning into the  awareness in every step

Dance with all of your being.



Connect unabashedly
Life and times move swiftly
Regret never the moment lost in doubt
Engage with this now passionately.



You will give yourself the greatest gift
The gift of living than simply existing.
You will fulfill the purpose of your being.
You will  make your life worth living

Two women



Sharing a lovely piece of poetry

Two women, two different roles
The one who gave birth to me
And the one I gave birth to.

One gave all the love she had
The other got all the love I had

One strived in the life chosen for her
The other – for the life she chose

One made sure I didn’t have tears
The other ensured I face my fears

One hears my voice to know if am well
The other can read my face and tell

One had her eyes moist as she saw me go
The other made my eyes moist as I let her go

My past and my future when shall meet
Will be a picture ever so complete
Two women, two different roles

If only I could be a little like them,
The one who gave birth to me,
And the one I gave birth to.

Two women, two different roles.



Can simply say

Love is the bridge…
Betwixt & Between

Live life lovingly!‚̧

The Creator’s Touch

A dear friend shared this video clip with me yesterday and I immediately penned these words…



The creator flows
Envisioning…
Creating patterns 
In the living
Every phase
Deeply connected
In the tapestry of life

Everything has a reason to be…
Every shape, every line
Speaks of life lived
Every shade, every colour
Every tone & every tint
Portrays the truths of living
Every curve depicts
The fullness of life.

In the creators touch
Art becomes artistry
In the state of flow
Where the creator
Merges with his creation
Emanating soul to the art.

Imagine

What if?

A place of stillness

Columns of concrete

Standing silent

Affirming its presence…

An artists work

Of imagination

Creativity is a flow

Imagination transcends

Artists beyond dimensions

Illusions dances & shifts itself

From real to surreal.

Technology enhances imagination

Giving wings to its flight

Here I have simply used it

To sense its effects by thinking

What if?

Which picture strikes you ?

What are your thoughts on it?

Imagination is full of possibilities.

Please share…

I just did.

Here is the original picture I took in France and enhanced it digitally.

The picture is of this uniquely interesting sculpture by Aurelie Nemours one of the emblematic figures of geometric abstract art..

Situated in Rennes France these columns are called….The 21st Century Alignment. It is a monumental work: 72 gray granite columns, four meters and fifty high, arranged on a concrete rectangle and punctuated by the course of the sun.

What looks like simple blocks of stones, is a modern contemporary art,
they pay homage to the Carnac stones of Breton France the largest collection of megalithic stones erected by Pre-celtic people which are also said to have astronomical connections.

On caring…





Life and living¬† can be both beautiful¬† and challenging beyond compare…

Touched by these heartfelt  words I came across so much that I just had to share..






‚ÄúTake me out to the street, son, I still have good legs. If I walk with you, I won’t feel old ‚Ķ
Invite me to your home, son, Sunday morning; to share your good table and feel accompanied …
Talk to me with love, son, don’t challenge me or shake me; we old people are like children we like to be pampered, to smile without discomfort ‚Ķ
Celebrate my birthdays, don’t criticize my follies; I’ll try to be brave, even if bitterness arises ‚Ķ
Don’t push me away from you, don’t talk to me in anger; I still have my mind clear, the memories of the past ‚Ķ
Come visit me at home, my son, I will not ask you for anything; just your presence and contemplate your face …
Don’t leave me sad and alone, don’t put me to bed; the doctors are wrong, the pain is in the soul ‚Ķ ‚ÄĚ






On Caring…

Care to give of yourself
Someday you may need it too!


Age is no bar
To create a value
For age is just a number.

Experience of living, matters.


Treat life with care
For life comes a full circle.



Life can at times be lonely
Make time to be present
In the life of those  who need you.


Just a bit of your time
A kind word or deed
Will make all the difference.




Express kindness
Your near and dear ones
Need to sense it.
Show empathy
Share the love.

A Matter of Attitude

Between the ‘will do’ and the ‘might do’

With a ‘will do’ attitude
A lot can happen
With a ‘might do’ attitude
Lies the difference
Between the done thing
And the may be done.

Perhaps it is the certainty
That emnates from confidence.
That makes things happen
It is all, in the way
You perceive as you project.

Keep the faith going strong
For people trust your words
Your belief in yourself
Shows, in the way you carry your self

Attitude makes all the difference
Life will evolve for the better
Until then, what truly matters
Is your positive attitude!

WISDOM OF STILLNESS




I listened  to my heart
Every day
As it shares from within
And I write them out as words
Sometimes as verses
At times its measured
In moderation.
Its a zen moment
For there is clarity
In just a few words shared.


Then there are times

They flow like a river
A torrent in a current
Patterning  itself
In its own making
Words come through me
As if it needs to be spoken
Sharing the sensitivity
Of the moments at hand.
I listen simply with rapt attention
For in the slightest flutter
In every movement in the moments
Or the depth of silence
There is wisdom in the stillness.

Be you, its simpler.



Value the life you have in this now

You are powerful in your uniqueness

You are your best friend

Make friends with yourself.

Trust yourself to know the way.

You will find your truth

Most importantly

There is no one else like you

Like who you are

Choose to be you

As you are

It’s simpler.

Be you.

Pool of Peace

Sharing my artwork here with my musings on Peace.

In the forest of your mind
Wanders many creatures
Of thoughts,
Great and small
Playing the game
Vying for attention
Fighting for Survival
To be heard and to be listened to
To be acted upon and manifest itself.

Your history and future
Dancing a tango with each other
In this present moment
But in-between and betwixt…

There is a space of quiet
Of all pervading calm
Within lies a lake of stillness
Or call it a pool of peace.

A watering hole of wisdom
A centering space of simplicity
As all illusory creations of the mind
Partake in a regeneration.

As the thoughts refresh themselves
The mind collects itself once more
All is Serene and tranquil inches now
Peace pools in and life evolves…
