Often the difference
Is in the ability
In reaching beyond
To go the extra mile
For a cause, a passion
In dedicated perseverance
Towards a larger purpose
That is where life feels most alive.
Sharing a lovely piece of poetry
Two women, two different roles
The one who gave birth to me
And the one I gave birth to.
One gave all the love she had
The other got all the love I had
One strived in the life chosen for her
The other – for the life she chose
One made sure I didn’t have tears
The other ensured I face my fears
One hears my voice to know if am well
The other can read my face and tell
One had her eyes moist as she saw me go
The other made my eyes moist as I let her go
My past and my future when shall meet
Will be a picture ever so complete
Two women, two different roles
If only I could be a little like them,
The one who gave birth to me,
And the one I gave birth to.
Two women, two different roles.
Can simply say
Love is the bridge…
Betwixt & Between
Live life lovingly!❤
These words of Rumi deeply resonates here…
“I searched for God and found only myself
I searched for myself and found only God.”
Such is the truth, worth remembering in every breath.
“Inhale a prayer in every inspiration.
Exhale with gratitude in every now.”
A Message of Gratitude.
5 years on Word press
A mighty task for me
To stay on, dedicated
To my writings.
But WordPress gives the canvas
To paint my words every day.
It encourages from the background.
Never in your face or intrusive.
But silently keeping tabs,
On every learning curve.
Rejoicing by a share
On every milestone
It has been a journey
Of many learnings
Along the way…
To my fellow writers & readers
Yes, I am no poet
Nor a writer by profession
I started on a lark
To dance with some words
To process my own thoughts
And give vent to my feelings
In a constructive and fulfilling way
And express I did
And continue to do, till date
With all my fellow writers
And readers, love, wishes & support.
We are an ever growing circle
Emerging through our words
In the sharing we have grown
We have eased into each other’s hearts
We may not see one another ever
But we have connected in mutual respect
Of each others creativity.
Though the power of words
Comforted and understood
Accepted and appreciated
One another in our own little ways.
For we all know the power of words
That, one heartfelt word can change a day!
Thank you all for being here and hoping for a joyful journey ahead together for us all.🙏🏼
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!
Came across this profoundly touching and valuable take on life and how it teaches us lessons in living.
Sharing it here today.
A poem by
Jorge Luis Borges
I checked about this poet and learned more about him on Wikipedia….
Jorge Luis Borges Acevedo was an Argentine short-story writer, essayist, poet and translator, and a key figure in Spanish-language and universal literature.
To write is to express
And emote your feelings…
To read is to explore
And experience the writers work
In the sharing is the learning.
A writer can speak much with a few words
Or wax eloquent with charming flourishes.
Whatever the way whenever it touches the heart…
There is something acknowledged.
Sometimes great learnings happen in the sharings.
When you speak, the words are yours and the thoughts are sent outwards, so choose your words…
When you hear, the words are others and thoughts are inwards, so think positively!
The voice within us.
Your true voice is not only the one you speak
Your true voice is the one you may hear
If and when you care to listen
It may be just a whisper
It may be heard just by you
But it says all that you need to hear
And it may be worth listening to!
The voice within us
Speaks the truth of the being
It expresses what you may need
But do not know yet.
It guides the way
It is a heartfelt reminder
Of all things beyond the surface.
It may be wise, listening to!
Truth of life
Every horizon once reached
Reveals another beckoning at a distance
There is always something more…
Across and beyond the goals you reach.
The horizon beckons as it unfolds.
The magnitude of space & possibilities
To discover and understand
To explore and learn
That life is a journey
Of infinite horizons!
Do you work yourself too hard, Searching for a friend
Fear not, for there are many sailing in the same boat.
Finding a friend in another
Is seeing a mutual joy of being
With one another whatever the interest
In seeing not necessarily eye to eye
But sensing the heart to heart in life and living.
Blessed are you to receive a true friendship
And the onus is on you to truly appreciate it.
For no matter the years, friendship never die
If there is value for the friendship
Treasure the blessing of a good friend.
Nurture the relationship the best you can.
Have spaces in your togetherness
So that you gather life experiences to muse upon.
A good friend listens and speaks from the heart and mind.
A true friendship is often blatant to the point of being brutally honest.
All for the sake of evolving for the better
And such are the friendships that withstand the test of time.
Finding friends is wonderful
But staying friends makes all the difference.
In every moment of time…
Care to be rooted to the stillness in your movements .
Acknowledge gratefully this strength in the rootedness.’
When life pans out
All the colours of the spirit and soul
Just as much as the joy’s in the hues and tints.
There are many shades and tones that challenge…
The path is interspersed with light and dark
Reflections of light
Dance and disappear
Like the passing clouds…
At times an incessant downpour of density
Like unrelenting thunderstorms
Even flashing lights through without respite
Excesses have a way of wearing itself out.
Like the colours of nature
Are known to balance themselves out…
Accept to blend and flow
In the seasons that change
And yet stay clearly distinguished
Maintaining the beauty in their vividity
Know the night moves on to the day
All is in flow in the circle of life.
Do we remember to thank every day.
Yes most days perhaps not always. Sometimes life can be tough too!
Are we grateful to life?
Yes deeply grateful
But we often take it for granted too!
A reminder is sent along
In the most unexpected turns of events
Sometimes to value what we still have
To remind us to let go the frivolities
To spare a thought for the blessings
And offer a prayer for them.
And thus pause for a moment
In gratitude for the good and the bad
And all things in between
In knowing all is well
As all is meant to be.
