The shape of things 

SHAPING ….Artwork by Savvy Raj

There is in the shape of things

A reason why

Like the night and the day

They say nothing is accidental

There is always a shape to things

A reason for design

A reason for pain and pleasure

A reason for order and disorder

A reason for imbalance

As much for equilibrium

A reason for the confusion in chaos

As much for emergence of clarity.

One thing leads to another

Patterns develop out of nothing into something

Those who are in the front

Become waybearers for those who follow…

In the ensuing connections

Forms take shape of things to come

Matter combines to eloquently express

Succintly abrest the brevity

Or in hyperboles of creation

All is yet in symmetry

Emotion emits acceleration

Life destructs and creates in continnum

To evolve itself in the shape of things to come.

Waltz of the birds

Watch this magical murmuration

In divine interconnection

Countless birds in a dance of symphony

Creating patterns in rhythmic harmony.

An enthralling aerial display.

That moves you with its magical sway

Makes you wish and wonder why

These flock of feathers fly this way!

In the swing and the sway
And the rise and fall
The flight of these birds
Interweave a cohesive harmony.
A rare sight both elusive and enigmatic
Orchestrated with brilliance
Perhaps simply waltzing with abandon
Perhaps to ward off the predator
With such seemingly chaotic order
Every dancing heart will delight
In acknowledging with awe
This dance of sychrony!

Savvy

Watch “European Birds at Baramati Pune” on YouTube

Here is a bit more on this beautiful phenomenon in the sky.

When the heart dances…

When the heart dances

The body moves

The spirit sings

The soul senses

Joy abounds.

It doesn’t matter what dance you love …. what matters is that your heart loves to dance 🙂

Windows of the Soul

Waltz of the Eyes

If eyes could speak
They would say a thousand words
May be more
Yes eyes speak more than words can tell
Have you seen eyes up close
They say much more

There is defiance denial
Hurt and humility
Fear and pain
Sadness and confusion
Longing for approval
And anguish of anxiety
There is judgement and approval
Brazeness and courage
Hope and trust
Mystic and magic
Enigma so magnetic
And yet there is also
Surprise and innocence
Charm and grace
Kindness and Generosity
A Light of Love
For life and living.

Waltz of the Eyes indeed! Speaking much without words that portrays the undeniable truths of life .

How much life experiences can speak through these windows of our soul! Check it for yourself … so much to read in there. May be you can see much more ….do share!

Thank you dear Efi for mentioning Stavros and this beautiful lilting music…’Waltz of the Eyes’ in my earlier post.This waltz is truly bewitching! 💙💙💙

Be all that you truly are!

In the inclusive and expansive attitude towards love for the self and fellow beings we emit a vulnerability that is actually the power within us all to heal and mend and shape us for the better.

With every hurt that scars the soul perhaps we may end up in restraints of our own doing. We fear to think beyond the boundaries, like the frog in the well … trying to seclude and exclude and end up confining ourselves within the walls we sadly create.

We are so afraid to express ourselves that,with our measured movements, of what might happen, or what others may think, we live in cocoons choosing to exist in doubt and insecurities. Perhaps, we may be stepping in our own way, instead of unfurling with all our innate potential the magnitude of our being.

Our life’s journey cannot not be about fear and doubt… for they will not allow us to take a step. And life is about movement, about understanding in discovery, why should life be suppressed in any way?

Think well
Walk with intent respect the space within and around you.
Speak with clarity and with conviction.
Express the self in faith and confidence.

Choose to see life unfolding positively
Allow space for spontaneity in trust, acknowledge it as the expression of your unique self.
Sense your potential and envision the future in hope.
To be all that you truly are.

On Togetherness

On togetherness

The question is are we strengthened or divided in time spent in togetherness. Nations that are close in proximity hardly are together like people who may live together seemingly close knitted but hardly feel united in spirit.

The picture above intrigues me…

Entwined hands in a show of unity

Three different shades of skin

Starkly different in tones and hues

Blood beneath it all is the colour red

Alive in this now and together

They seem bonded by life

Yet this show of togetherness is a far cry

And belies the truth and reeks of racial struggles of times bygone.

Light medium and dark

These three sheaths of skin

Speak volumes of the unspoken rift

They tell tales of discrimination

Of slavery and class differentiation

Of power struggles and domination

Of the oppressed and the oppressors

Of distances in between

Of privileged and underprivileged

Is this show of strength in unity … Is it

An illusion of togetherness

A kiss and tell in feigned innocence

Or a facade put forth

In the very bliss of ignorance

One doesn’t know

Like we know not how souls choose the body to live to enjoy or endure it through a lifetime.

In the blissful togetherness!

Our world today may have woken up in bits and pieces.

In awareness of equality of the sexes

With respect for beings alike

With value for human dignity by far

Yet there is ongoing war and terror everywhere

Women are not safe anywhere

As predators lurk,

Children have to be watched over carefully

None feel safe any place anywhere

And peace is the need of this planet …in this now

If there is anything that may help bridge the gap

It is the awareness of the humanity in each other

And the strength of the interconnects in the interbeing

True togetherness is a trustful knowing in interdependence

In acceptance of one another in spite of their unique differences.

These reflections in verse format are my hearts cry that poured through the verses addressing many ills and evils of society.

Namely lack of tolerance, inequality, indignity, racial discrimination, body shaming, gender bias, atrocities on women ,child safety issues as much the forest fires and global warming and not to forget the threats of terror,war and more.

We are simply making it more difficult to live in this planet with each other by our egoplays, taking one another and our world for granted and need for domination without a consideration of the consequences of our actions.

Why can’t we coexist in peace and in strength of unity in this beautiful ball of blue?

After all it is the only one world we have.

Waltzing beyond the walls!

A visual verse

Wrote this impromptu poem after seeing this clip shared by my dear friend Efi from https://efisoul63.wordpress.com/about/

yesterday on my post Creativity: A matter of approach https://wp.me/p6a0yZ-2Em

Watch these amazing and spirited performers daring to dance like so…

<a href=”http://

“>Waltzing On the Walls

Waltzing beyond the Walls
Art lives in betwixt and beyond the walls of assumption
A dance happens in the letting go and in the gumption
Take away the fear of falling down and failure.
Take away the fear of doubts and see what the spirit can endure…

Soul dances leading through the spirit and the body follows
Unshackling conventions and freeing of limitations that hollows
Defying the elements and daring to dance
Shaping new frontiers without losing form or stance

Spirit of life I bow to thee🙏
You are beyond all decree.🤲
