Mountains of Muscat

For the love of the mountains
Today there is a rare 

And unusual clarity

In the skies

and one can see

The faint outline

Of the highest peak.

May our minds

Always have such clarity

And may we be granted

And blessed such visions

That guide us

Into the unknown

With calmness

And divine sublimity.

Good Morning World!

When for no reason

Sometimes for no obvious   
Or explicable reason,
You may just feel
Your heart is heavier,
Your mood is low,
Your reflexes are slow.

Usually around this time,
Same day, same time,
In the past,
You have faced,
A devastating setback.

The heart has not forgotten,
The mind has not overcome,
But you have moved on.

At such moments,
It helps to do Pranayam.
Meditate.
Be gentle with yourself.
Do some new artwork.
Read a new poem.
Smell the flowers.
Direct your attention
To chanting or prayers
And observe meditation.

Reward yourself
With care and compassion.
Instead of avoiding
The feeling, be with it.
Accept it.
Improve on self-preservation
And self-care.

This too shall pass.
Hope you have a good life ahead.
Nature helps healing, so does Silence

Sip slower today

Savour the sweet Kahwa moments
Hush the rush,
Chai or coffee,
Sip it slower.

Now or noon,
Evening or later,
Find your Me-time,
To take a breather.

Hush the rush,
Chai or coffee,
Sip it slower.

Relax deeper,
A little longer,
A few moments more,
Inhale the aroma,
Exhale Life's drama.

Hush the rush,
Chai or coffee,
Sip it slower.

As you sip,
Bring the cup,
To your lip,
Smile wide,
Let worries slip,
And grudges slide.

Hush the rush,
Chai or coffee,
Sip it slower.
Relax, you are worth it.

So what now?

Let's say,
What you did dream,
What you did chase,
Was a slip between
The cup and the lip.

You may sulk, scream
Pine for what is not,
Won't let it just go,
Oscillate to and fro-
Pendulum-like, moving
Without progressing.


As you observe,
Surely you know,
Back and forth,
Forth and back,
Ask your self,
What in this life
Do you really lack?

I’m not sure

πŸ˜‡
I'm not sure 
What love is,
But I know
Kindness is pure.
In the end,
What changes the story,
What matters totally,
Is how well you treat
The one you claim to love
In thought, word & deed.
Love without integrity is no love

Wordless

Remain in Silence

Wordlessly yoursπŸ˜€

The Sun Poem

Aspire and explore like the kite!
As the Sun 
In all its glory
Outshines, radiates
And lights up
All our Earth,
May you feel its warmth
And realise your potent
To its fullest,
Shine your brightest!


May you move
With the times
Like the Sun:
March across
The horizon,
Skyward,
Forward.

May you choose
To smile and keep
Your sunny side up!
HAPPY MAKAR SANKRANTI!

Oman Environment Day

πŸͺπŸ«πŸ’šπŸ’™OmanπŸŒ΄πŸŸπŸ¬πŸ‹πŸ³
The palms loaded
With dates sweet,
The oceans stretch
From Muscat to Musandam
And many miles more,
So blue and so green,
With golden sands
on the endless shore,

A treasure of marine life
May it thrive, multiply,
And ships anchor here,
Day and night
There's lively cheer,
Sailors carry stories
From far and wide,
Oman welcomes them all,
With arms open wide.

8th January we reserve,
To vow and promise,
On this day every year
This bounty we'll forever
Nourish and preserve,
Oman's Nature
We'll always cherish
And daily nurture.
Oman, my dear Oman

Glide into 2022

2022, fresh as dew
Glide gently through
Few hours more
Into Twenty Twenty Two.

Merry or morose,
Some memories
Life deposited,
And some precious
Beloved memory-makers
Death withdrew.

Some doors shut,
Some did open for you,
To glide smoothly into
Twenty Twenty Two.

To reach the state ideal
You and I got to deal
With what we do,
How we feel.

So soar high
With Hope, fly
Do your best,
Just try and try.


Wishing you
A year New,
May your energies
Declutter and clear,
And your hope,
Rekindle and renew.

Wake up,
With a dream
Fresh as dew,
Rise, be wise,
Welcome 2022.

Morning of Memories

Memories are like mountains
The fog hides them all
And the sun
Reveals as we recall.

Some days memories
Play hide and seek,
A clouded mind
Struggles for detail;
Other days, memories
Refuse to leave,
All visuals you retrieve.

Memories.
Mountains far and near
Sometimes a smile,
Sometimes a tear.
