This Moment

This Now’ is a just a flicker
In the vast endless space.
A fleeting moment,
That travels backwards in Time.
Never to return on its one way path.
Never blink your eyes, lest you miss
The beauty of the Moment.

Some moments well captured in this time frame.
Stays afresh like the etching on a rock.
A single moment, so potent
To change the course of your life.

A bliss or curse, depends on the Awakening Awareness of its Transcience.

Seek an understanding mind
Make no effort to stagnate,
As flowing is its innate Nature.

Senses wandering free
Unmindful of the other
Thoughts floating like clouds
Unconnected actions of body n mind
Aimless moments, effortless wastage
Unaware of the flow of Time.
Like sand seeping through the fingers
‘This Now’ dissolving in the past,
Creating a formless future, at what cost?
Potent moments become futile.

Detachment is different from disconnection.
Awareness is not aligned to alienation.
Make an effort to be consciously present
Not to miss a moment of breathe,
‘Be in the Now’ to witness the magic of Life.
Anjana

Sharing my mothers reflections here on the value of the moments. She wrote this after reflecting on my earlier poem

The Potent Now! https://savvyraj.com/2018/09/26/the-potent-now/

Just added some images to go with her thoughts.

The Gift of Life

To dance is to acknowledge the living you at this moment
In every move, the heart and mind is looped in joyousness
In every flight is the beauty of lightness.

To dance is to realize

The sensation of living

And to energize the self

As well as the surroundings

With this gift of life!

On Embodiment

Channelling Embodiment: Artwork by Savvy Raj

On Embodiment

Immerse yourself completely in your passion

Your every expression of it is what makes it tangible

As you direct your focus to its manifestation

As you keep moving from the abstract to the concrete

As you recognize the gifts of life and connect with it.

Your engagement will and perseverance will take you through

That is what creates possibilities beyond limitations.

To realise your dream, you embody it.

Amazing Nature

Breathtaking Symmetry

Amazing poise and amazing grace

Came across this picture online

And I couldn’t take my eyes off this one

This speaks for nature at its symmetrical best

In harmonious synchrony of creation

Every curve, shape, profoundly manifests

Nature in all its awe and wonder

A testament to divinity in life and living.

Savvy

There is moment of reckoning

As you face nature’s beauty in the eye

You are arrested by emotions

Welling within you in admiration.

I see the gentleness in those eyes

I am drawn to the patterns so pleasing

I am awed by the texture and shades

Creation so majestic in all living glory.

I bow in reverence to the creator of life.

PS: If you find yourself drawn to this picture like I did , do include your immediate thoughts below whatever comes to you . Am keen to understand and learn more… I would truly appreciate your effort.Thank you .

A Share of Blessings

“May the warm winds of heaven blow softly upon your house.

May the Great Spirit bless all who enter there.

May your mocassins make happy tracks in many snows,

And may the rainbow always touch your shoulder.”

A beautiful American Indian Cherokee Blessing that someone sent across to me. Thank you my friend wherever you are … 😊 This I share with all my friends here today.

Enigma & Elegance

On Black and White Artistry

Black and white may be excluded

From the family of colours.

But the tints, tones & shades

Find a family of their own….

In the enigmatic monochrome

And the elegance they exude

Borders on sheer simplicity

And dares on the utter sophistication.

In a world of colours that we may see

Using tonal contrast creates drama

Using light to capture textures.

Form and shape makes a difference.

Devoid of distractions of colours

Evocative captures, quality of lighting

Shifts focus on the ethereal elements

And accentuates the light and shadows.

Black and white photography

Flatters in a timeless way

At times it elevates, the subjects beauty

Creating an enigmatic dimension.

Presenting my artwork above

Titled : Chakra (Wheel ) above that felt right to me

Only in monochromatic elegance

Of Black & White shades and tones.

Triumph of transparency

In throwing off the apparition
Removing the mask of illusion.
Fighting off the facades in the making.
Baring open the simple truth of the soul

Lays bare the beauty of transparency,
In spite of the rawness of being.
There is the irrefutable truth of life and living.

Stark reality does not need to conspire
For everything is out in the open
No masking no faking, no facades
All is what it is.

In forging of a bond mutually
A relationship can thrive

In being truly accessible as much, as in accountability.

While barriers need to break through.

Honesty wins when transparency triumphs
Secrets out of the closet reveals a forthcoming forthrightness.
Trust regains its place in the sun.

Savvy

There is disarming beauty when one speaks in truth and honesty.

Transparency in speech and actions make vulnerability its strength.

That is the triumph of transparency.
