Glimmers of hope

Winter chills
Soft snow
Frosted faces
Warm woollies

Hot chocolate
Cups of cheer
Christmas Spirit
Jolly season

Giving and receiving
Autumn leaves
Barren trees
Icy peaks

Blizzards ring
Howling wind
Biting cold
Frozen river
Drifting snow
Spells of darkness

Awaiting the sun
After the snow
Melting glaciers
A glimmer of sun

Summer skies

Shining sun
Smiling faces
Warm welcome
Spring is here

Lush and abundant
Bounties harvest
Artists delight
Beautiful blossoms

Colours of spring
Arresting hues
Breathtaking scenery
Flourishing nature

Spring turns Summer
Rising temperature
Mango season
Tasty treats

Sweltering heat
Icy popsicles
Slurping icecreams
Lime and lemon

Iced teas cold drinks
Quenching thirst
Parched earth
Dried lands

Blazing sun
Scorching sands
Sizzling days
Humid nights

Awaiting relief
Summer to rain
First shower
Fragrant earth

Heavenly delight
Rainy holidays
Feeling cool
Corn on cobs.

Cheap thrills
Small puddles
Splashing water
Rain coats and caps

Unfolding umbrellas
River on streets
Muddy water
Flooding roads

Chaotic confusion
Delayed trains
Traffic stops
People stranded

Rainy days turn dreary
All wet and weary
Hoping for relief
From incessant downpours

Awaiting a change
Of the Season in question
Life is circle
Of seasons in cycles

Each births and gives way
For another, on its way.
Amidst it all
Are those little glimmers of hope

Understated and unsaid
Unseen and unspoken
Little joys of being
That makes you make it…

Through yet another day.

These glimmers of hope
Though seasons may change
Hope is here to stay!

Savvy

Well, this one turned out to be a really long walk through the seasons!šŸ™‚ But seriously, as I started thinking of the changing seasons, with winter knocking our welcome door, I realised how much harsh winter could get for someone far away as well. So it goes for the other seasons…

Yet every season is a magical gift, and leaves us with glimmers of hope!

We do need our seasons to come and go like they always do, one after the other for then, all is well with our world. šŸ™‚

A little more…

A want of more
Than what one has
A little more of everything
And then some more

The stakes keep rising
For fame, name and wealth
For success must be achieved
No matter the consequence.

Such is the nature of life
Of curiosity wonder and awe.
Without wisdom of moderation
Wants continue to grow.

Greed and avarice
Raises its hood
Life turns material
And ripples of chaos reigns.

When ripples turn still
There is union in the being
From desire to contentment
Fulfillment in the realisation.

When wanting evolves to knowing
In understanding, all is within
Both the wants and the knowing.
Seeking sublimes in silent awareness.

Savvy

When I shared my verses on Life and living … https://savvyraj.com/2018/10/23/life-comes-a-full-circle/

There was a message from one of the readers that made me reflect and write on the very nature of ripples in life and living. From the chaos of change to the stillness of sublimity.

Journey on…

Journey on until you meet yourself
For embedded along the path
Of many echelons of time
Life leaves imprints in the living

There will be many experiences
That makes your soul cry
Out in pain and pleasures
Of sensing connections
Beyond this lifetime.

Journey on nevertheless
For in meeting the many
Moments that seem enmeshed with you
You are closer to yourself

In the travelling along

Comes moments that seems
To speak straight to the heart
Of the truth of your being

All is familiar, there is deja vu

And you know the scenario only too well

For you know you have been right here.

All else is immaterial and immaculate.

You won’t need any guide
Then as you partake the joy
Of this meeting with this being
You know you have found your self.

On Success

You create the state of success

And you never rest on your success

Success is in the courage to continue

Your perseverance, your passion and purpose.

Success is consistently inconsiderate

Success demands much focus

as it supplies momentum

Beyond self limitations and doubts.

True success is the knowing

In your heart of contentment

Of a life well lived and loved

Success is who we are

Success is in each of us

Awaiting a discovery

An unearthing of potential

To sense life’s possibilities

If you believe ur abilities,

trust your instincts and

give it your best shot,

Success is sure to follow…

Puzzles are meant to fit

We may not know how or when
We may often question why
We may feel ousted by fate
Our sense of destiny is at play

But if only we could give
trust a little chance ..
For when the time is right
Every piece of puzzle fits in perfectly.

For puzzles are meant to fit.

Creativity & Appreciation

Creativity is propelled
In every appreciation of what is…
For creativity feeds on creative thoughts.
Every life is creative in its own way.

Unique is the human mind
It takes strength of the interconnects
And creates expression of its own being.

To acknowledge and appreciate another
Is to open the channels of creativity
In accommodation as much acceptance
Of the infinite potential of possibilities
That arises in the moment.
It gives wings to create & explore more
It widens the gamut of ones horizon
But most of all it creates a balance
Between action and inaction
Between creation to pause in gratitude.

To honour the beauty that abounds
Lifting off clouds of self absorbtion.
To witness in wonder of sheer awe
And joys of nature and nurture.
A much needed act so share
That nourishes creative instincts
To create some more.

Savvy

Writing is an art. Steering and shaping thoughts to create and inspire is an exploratory journey. In learning to write, and widening the scope of creativity, the experience of reading others work, and sharing reflections of and with others is a expansive phenomena for any writer to improve their work.

Appreciation is an evolved response that is a double ended tool to instill & invoke creative flow in the self and others.

Savvy

Every artistic endeavour flourishes in exploration and discovery of the creative abundance. In understanding the nuances of the interconnects that manifest, greater perspective is revealed.

Every artist inspired or is propelled to create by many facets of artistic energies and it’s interplay.

What is truly wonderful is in the depth of creativity lies utter humility in the realms of the learnings yet unravelled.

Conscious Independence

As we celebrate our Independence day in India, may we care to value the underlying philosophy behind the word Independence … the ability to voice our uniqueness and express our individuality amidst a global platform.

Truly, Independence is a birthright that allows us to freely express ourselves, but along with it, is a sense of responsibility, a duty to empower the within as much as the world .

Channelizing the creative flow of freedom of expression to positive outcomes for the larger good is a responsibility for every individual. It is actually the simple way to create a life of well being with in and around each of us and for the world at large .

As we are after all an interdependent world even in our states of independence…. that to me is valuing and practicing Conscious Independence.

Happy Independence Day!!!

May we always Dance the dance of independence and freedom.

May we tune ourselves to connect with joys in tandem.

May we always remember and value great souls lost in martyrdom.

May we acknowledge that the strength in the interdependence is never random.

May we always respect our roots and learn to follow our inner wisdom.
