The Quality of Patience

Nothing can be built in a day.Not an individual’s character, neither careers, nor businesses, nor lives, neither cities, nor countries.Nothing can be built in a haste.Not a home, nor a design, a device, not a game, nor a song or a tele-series.Nothing can be learnt in a day. Not a subject discipline, nor playing music,Continue reading “The Quality of Patience”

A morning wish

Temporal time ticks,We move, as it kicks.Breeze in the hair,We pick a warm wear.Neither time,Nor breeze,Do we see,But one shows us,Our lifetime limit,The other shows us,What’s it to be free.Use temporal time well,But use leisure better.Enjoy the breeze, The outdoors and The good weather.May there be a zing, Right under your wing,As you follow dreams,AndContinue reading “A morning wish”

Enter November!

The month eleventh,Cool in the desert,Cold elsewhere,Freezing minus ten,Speeding to year-end.Glance back perhapsThe time did lapse,Memories we made,Some of laughters Some of regrets.We lost some, We found some,People gone, People come.Thanksgiving month,Gratitude to hold,Tomorrows to behold,With fervour,Enter November,Let’s thank all those,We forgot to remember.

Brought nothing, lost nothing

Born empty handed, Leave empty-handed. Live with love and light. When here we landed,Weren’t you and me,Both born empty-handed?Then let’s live life,Without hate and strife,Unassuming and light,Choosing love: Not might over right,Decide none to exploit.Lets feel from The depths of our heart,And reach great heightsThrough our open, Un-burdened, mind,Always to ourself remind:To keep our thoughts,Continue reading “Brought nothing, lost nothing”

Have a laughterful day and a happy morning.

Laugh a lot more, May your laughter,Just nonstop pour,On laughter increase,Your score more.Let laughter,Reach your core,Like the rushing,Waves on the shore.Life’s not forever,It’s now or never,Genuine, laughter pureWill many ails cure.
