Tall trees…

A photograph by Savvy Raj @France

Umpteen number of years gone by
Though I lost the count,
Nature got it etched on my trunk.
I can’t remember when I was a seed or sapling.
Today I stand tall being a witness to the passing seasons.
I wither and flourish,
With each passing year
My branches multiply tall and wide.
Though my hands try to reach the passing clouds…

My roots stand firmly grounded on the earth.
My secret of longevity
I adapt to Nature
Withering in Autumn
Clad in the snow in Winter
Rising to be alive with Rains
Flourishing in Spring.
Though I may look barren at times
My creeper friends cloth me in green
Till my canopy is filled with greens.
To nurture and nourish withstanding Time.

I am truly happy to share the above verses for this is one of my mother’s impromptu poems written in a flow, just a while ago, after I shared the above photo of a tree that I was drawn to capture with her.

Tall trees that seem to touch the sky …
devoid of leaves and blue skies with silver puffs of clouds floating by…

I am currently in France and while sitting in a bus stand admiring a tree at a distance, I decided to take this photo as I found myself drawn to capturing the vision of the sky from the ground below through the branches as a canopy of sorts.

Every manifestation of life is beautiful and significant in its own way. We often assume that a tree devoid of leaves is barren and ignore it. Yet there is so much to see and learn, respect & reflect from it.

I loved the above poem by her for many reasons one of which is because, it reflects the wisdom of nature, that flows through us all maintaining balance and sustaining us in life and living.

Power Of Love

Love is one of the most natural and yet the most complex of emotions

Where true love is, peace walks in…

Love is the unison of the heart & mind.

Love makes the world go around.

Love speaks beyond borders

Love leaves impressions in eternity

Love is a gift of nature.

Love is kind and giving.

Love is an expression of life.

Love emits confidence and ease

Love evokes positive creativity.

Yet…

Love is blind & beyond discernment

Love sees things for itself.

Love moulds itself in feeling &emotions

Love clouds the rational mind.

Yet…

Love changes the equation.

Love can mend the broken heart

Love hurts and heals.

Love cares and cures as well.

Love has many forms and shapes.

Love is the innate power of life.

Love can alter the course of life.

Love is life, well-lived.

Love is meant to evolve life.

Where love flows, life nourishes itself.

What is life without love?

Live life lovingly!

Be nice in every now.

The moment at hand is the only thing We really own…
Why wait for Christmas to be nice ?
Express appreciation, encourage another.

Share the goodwill &cheer in every season.
Be grateful and gracious
Be kind and caring
Be nice in every now!

Touching the nerve of truth

Touching the nerve of truth
It is not an easy task to confront
Cause to confront is to be ready for conflict
Be it any kind…
From mental social or physical and more
Conflicts are always unwanted.

But change is the only constant

And life moves on creating itself.

In any art and creative endeavour
Say even speaking & writing for that matter, there is much scope for influences and perceptions.

It is the nature of truth to transform
But not without chaos and confusion
Such is the nature of human frailty.

There in lies the strength of human spirit. (Contd)

On Interconnectedness

The strength of the interconnects run deeper than we can fathom.

We are much more interweaved and interdependent than we realise.

And the sooner we realize how much we need to coexist, the better we will be.

Art of Acceptance

True learning happens when we realize we are the teacher and we are the student.

And life teaches the greatest lessons without anyone uttering a word or at times in just the sheer presence of a good soul.

Likewise, as we live from our heart and open ourselves to realization and acceptance of new possibilities… true living happens!

Simple truth.

There was a question asked to Ramana Maharishi
Question: What is the best way to treat others?
Ramana: There are no others.

This is the simple truth of life and living well.

If only we can see how we are but reflections of one another then a lot of discrimination will stop right then and there.

Discrimination is the root of conflict.

To think one life as above or below another creates inequalities in mutual treatment and socialization.

Remember to practice non discrimination in life and living.
