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.
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?

Trust light to shine itself
Trust the shadows to find light
All is not dark forever
For light shimmers on shadows
What’s hidden uncovers itself
At some point or the other
Trust in time
Patterns are meant to shape
And change itself along the way
What shines has shadows
And shadows shimmer too!
Keep the faith
Shadows will find the light
All is meant to be well and bright.
Who says the page is empty?
There is poetry that is waiting to emerge
Who says the mind is blank?
There are surging thoughts full of potential.
Who says there is stillness in the silence
Stillness is overflowing with movements.
Who says the night is dark
There is light awaiting dawn!
A blank canvas is full of possibilities
Of creativity in all its flourishes in the flow.
There is the color of hope
There are patterns arising in perspectives.
There is forming and shaping of things to come
There is composition awaiting the sensing
All it needs is your faith in the envisioning.
For faith is all there is
In faith there is everything!
When I chose to study arts many years ago I chose it because I loved arts I was drawn to it just as much as I was drawn the physics of artistry or the philosophy of science. I wanted to understand more, I always felt there is so much to contemplate and discover for oneself, to discuss and reflect with one another.
Today having joyful engaged with many professional paths in my career over the years in both mainstream and offbeat tracks, I am voicing what’s in my heart.
Speaking from the Indian perspective
in those days, arts was a stream not taken by the so-called achievers, it was not for those who wanted to study management and have mainstream careers. It was way to become a future teacher or an artist. Not too many career options were thought to be open for the arts graduate. It was often ignorantly assumed that those who did not do well in Math and Science subjects will end up with the arts.
I knew then how wrong it was to segregate people into water tight compartments and more so to differentiate between subjects as unimportant and unnecessary. Unlike the times today, where every field of study has great scope… arts was given a frivolous status.
Thankfully over the years from literature to performance art from entertainment to edutainment, the range and the scope of art and its application grew to encompass a lot more.
Education suddenly realized the holistic approach to education and started integrated methods of education. With awareness came the realization that nothing exists in a vacuum.
There is interdependence in between various subjects and there are areas that are common to two different pathways. And in the intermingling new thoughts emerge and evolve in time.
Truly so, arts is interwoven in the tapestry of life and living. The way we are, the way we move and chose to flow with life everything is part of an artful flow . For life is an art in itself.
Today more than ever this very art is making life bearable.
There is a sudden leaning towards the arts, to poetry, paintings and prose, to dance and music, there are takers for all things’ art.
Perhaps as a means of entertainment, to simply sense the finer things of life in the interim period with nothing else to do. But art and its application has so much more to offer, in every season, to lift us from our banal mundane existence and creatively enrich and empower our hearts and minds with engaging experiences.
Trust art, to always deliver beyond the apparent.
And despite everything
The flowers continue to bloom
Trees bear fruits
Sun shows up every morning unfailingly
Birds fly free
Nature keeps its pace
Life goes on.
We are reborn every night
As the beam of sun shines upon us
Every day, we are restored with hope
And faith in the consistency.
Every night awakens to a new day
At the dawn of light
Darkness gives way even in the presence
Of a single ray of light.
Such is the power of light
To instill hope faith and trust
In the possibilities awaiting us.
To envision and uncover our undiscovered light.
To overcome the shadows
As they recede & fade away
For light makes the world more beautiful
As nature is all aglow, in its pristine glory.
So if you are feeling overshadowed in this now
Keep the faith, for your ray of light
Is just around the corner to meet you.
Keep the faith! You will step into the light!
Have you seen the whales breach
In such confidence they soar upward
They even maneuver a twirl
And fall back in complete trust
In the support of the water below.
How beautiful an example can mother nature give
Of unfolding grace in trust and confidence
Much of our lifes story can be just as beautiful.
When it is in a flow like that
When we rise in success with faith
Being completely confident of our purpose
When we surrender in complete unflinching trust
Knowing there is support and love flowing in the roots.
Why are humans rising and touching the stars?
Why are we progressing phenomenally
Yet why are we crash landing at times?
Why are we failing?
While it is the faith in ourselves that may take us upwards
Bu the lack of trust and support for one another brings us down.
Perhaps we need to learn from water
How to be flexible in its fluidity.
To be adaptable in its buoyancy
And then we too can rise again with every fall.
For inspite of every ability we have …
Support from our family and friends
Matter more than we know!
Wouldn’t you agree?
When you have faith in your roots then every leap of faith is of a trustful knowing
That no matter how far you reach you have a home to come back to!
Story behind the photographs
Yesterday I posted a verse that came to me inspired by these captures. Here is the link https://wp.me/p6a0yZ-4CX
There is more to these photos…
While visiting Lourve Museum in France and while walking around those endless galleries of amazing artists and their creativity galore, my eyes turned to a glassdoor near the flight of steps.
I chanced upon this wonderful sculpture on the roof top of the facade, reaching out to the yonder as if to tell something… I filled in the blanks.
Sometimes we are so deeply caught in the maze of life around us.
But if we only care to look beyond it all, we are inspired to see so much more.
Art is in the way you see life.
Art is all around us and is but a perspective of the nuances.
All you need is the heart to appreciate.
Can you waltz on ice?
When winters turn grim and cold
Can you create joy an cheer?
Even in moments of melancholy.
Can you see a silver lining of hope?
In the dark dreary night to help you cope
Can you see beauty in every dusk and dawn?
Letting go of fear & doubts in the twilight hours.
Can you instill trust in another & move in faith?
Inspite of not knowing the way as yet.
Can you believe you can lead the way?
Inspite of being in a maze in the now.
Clearly then you are dancing in this moment.
Clearly you are waltzing on ice.
Came across this beautiful picture share
And couldn’t help take a second glance
Credits go to the photographer fully for this amazing photograph.
Leaving me to question in awe
Is this a piece of heaven on earth?
Leading me to another question
Is heaven in a piece of your soul
Sought to be sighted in some faraway land?
Perhaps it’s nearer home.
Not milky ways away.
Heaven is the gasp of breath you take.
Heaven is in the tree of life.
Heaven is full of hope and wonder.
Heaven grounds you home or leaves you awestruck.
Heaven speaks from the heart.
For heaven knows …
Have you found your piece of heaven?
Trust yourself you will know it.

When wisdom flows
It sees no borders that bound
Humanity speaks for itself
Beyond the east or west
To let go of the trivial niggles
In the unity of understanding.
Of the bigger picture…
There is much wisdom in integration, in finding meaning in the divergences.
What a poet relates to the truth in humanity.
What a scientist relates with theories of relativity
Are all drawn from the same well,
Of cosmic vibrations,
Of conscious awareness,
Of the eternal truths of life.
Where wisdom flows
There is Universal consciousness
Here is a beautiful conversation I came across between the great minds, of Albert Einstein and Rabindranath Tagore…..when the two met and spoke at length.
Do take time to read this interesting dialogue between them in this article link below.
We are vulnerable beings
And yet in that vulnerability is strength
That resurrects us while unnerving us.
Beyond conflicts is the emergence
All transitions in time to the transcendence…
In spirit and soul.
