Round the corner

You may feel low,

You may have had a blow,

But dwell in hope,

You'll surely cope,

Just round the corner,

There's dawn again and light,

There's sweet delight.

Diwali's the highlight.

Declutter and decorate,

Goodness let's opt for

Each and everyday,

Kindness let's celebrate.

In each and every way.

Diwali is a festival

Of lighting diyas,

To drive away darkness,

Not just of the Amaavas,

But also the despair

And focus on inspiring

Others and ourself,

Spread love and light,

Share wisdom, show care.

From our heart,
Prayerful, kind and pure.

Kanhaa Poem

The  Kanhaa Poem: 1 
By Amita J Sanghavi.
19/8/2022.

Krishna, krishna!

Heading straight

To the Haveli,

We stop at the phoolwala

And his tokri,

Our steps halt

As we bend,

Flowers to the soul,

Bliss lend:

The moment

Of spotting fresh blooms,

Mogra and Prajakta,

Bringing a bright glow

On our face and our heart,

We bend to touch the petals,

And the softness

In the Marigold garlands,

How we love to hold!

And now hurry to visit

Krishna in the temple,

Inhaling incense,

Lotus scented agarbatti

Lighting lamps for real,

Chanting aarti in chorus,

As we drape blooms

Around His neck,

And join our hands,

Overwhelmed

With real Darshan

In our 'ami'-filled eyes,

As our blue Kanhaa

We behold,

The maakhan chor,

And His mesmerising,

Mischievous muskaan

Forever heart-held,

Come let’s celebrate,

The birth of

Our Divine consciousness

On Krishna we focus,

Govind Hari, Gopal Hari,

We chant in chorus,

His feet,

The ultimate Sharan

For us.

As evening arrives…

Choose to visualise rainbows
May you silent the noises of worry and stress and fear. May you find your peace as you use words of hope and thoughts of love. May the mind retain and recall your favourite music, your favourite songs, your favourite flavours and beautiful memories.
May your heart be filled with contentment and courage.
Ensure the mind sees the silver lining

Good Morning

May this day
Be perfect
In a way
That makes you
Smile a little more.

May this day
Be perfect
In a way
That you
Feel glad a little more.

Wish you a little more
Of all the very best
You deserve and desire.

The other half of 2022 arrives


To sun-hot May,
The summer-bringer,
In days few,
We bid adieu.

How very soon,
Arrives June,
Along comes the monsoon,
May the rains grace,
Cool the land too,
Welcome, 'warm' welcome,
To the second half
Of the year 2022.

Lets remind ourselves,
In New Year resolutions
What did we decide,
But simply couldn't do?

Its never too late,
Begin today,
It's still May.

Uncertainty is okay

Wait…
Uncertainty:
It is a gap,
A blur,
The distance,
Between the answer,
And its question.

It is the time
When we have to sit back,
Not knowing,
What's next in line,
Feeling fear and lack.
Its best to wait,
And let the universe,
Gather its intelligence,
And put the best stuff,
Together for us.

Uncertainty is quite
An humbling experience.
It makes us patient,
And lean on faith,
And seek divine guidance.

Just breathe.
Just be.
May the universe conspire,
And may you wait out;
For those who wait patiently,
Also serve.

Accept uncertainty,
Let life unfold.
In the face of uncertainty,
Be stoic, be bold.

Gallery

Have faith

Watch flowers bloom,
Listen the birds sing,
Bump into bunnies
Scurrying and hurrying,
Dancing and hip-hopping.

Rise and shine,
With love and faith,
Of all the divine,
And in God's trust
May your soul be refined,
And in blessed love,
May you remain entwined.
Remain blessed

Anticipate

The next moment

Anticipate

Something wonderful,

And something pleasant

Is about to happen.

Life happens in moments.

Have a day blessed with

Hopeful, peaceful,

And lovely moments.
The moment before flying…

Migrant

Smile more
The winged explorer,
The sky-migrant,
The global glider
The borderless flyer
The bird
Tell me,
Do you look back
To your first nest,
To your first branch,
To your first tree?
Do you only fly onward,
Do you only move forward,
Never glance backward,
Never sigh,
Just fly high?

Me too, a migrant,
Between cities,
Between tongues,
Between thoughts,
Between my origin
And final destination,
Here and now, on earth,
Only pursuing
Peace is worth,
I perch for a while,
I just have one lifetime,
So, I search for peace,
From mile to mile,
And ultimately realise
Peace itself perches
In my heart and my smile.



Peace is within.

Joy is in fleeting moments
Connect with Nature,
Find joy
In clouds taking
On shapes,moving, changing.

Find dance
In leaves and flowers swaying.

Find tunes and songs,
In birds chirping
And streams gurgling
And the breeze whooshing.

Find joy.
Sigh out worry,
Breathe in joy.

Have a day filled
With joyful moments.
Whatever bothers you, just let it go…As Maya Angelou says,’Joy is a freedom. It helps a person to find his/her own liberation.

Forward.

To smile and keep
Your sunny side up!

Safed Jambu tree

Love apples, Safed Jambus
You stood below
Ready to catch
The jambus
I would throw.

I climbed up
Branch to branch,
Tried to pluck the jambus
You spotted and told me
To reach out
With the sticks
We tried to tie
Together by and by.

Those hidden in between
The lush green leaves,
The jumbo white jambus
Were our absolute treat!

A fresh fruit so simple
Brought a dimple,
With your pretty smile,
As we took no while,
To munch into
A huge juicy bite
Relishing it quite.

The moment felt so right,
A venture unplanned,
Our afternoon filled
With masti and delight,
Fun in bright sunlight,
Feeling excited galore,
Plucking fruit more.

A sense of accomplishment
We felt so content,
A fun day wherein,
Our wishes fulfilled💚.

I remember so clear,
Our girlish might,
Our sheer cheer,
As you caught
The jambus white
In your palms safe,
Without a scratch,
Wow I would say,
'What a catch!'
As though we played
In a cricket match!


The fresh lingering taste
Of the safed jambu,
A tree laden with fruit,
Within its shade,
We too grew.


My dearest sister,
My naughty accomplice
In our days of childhood,
Romping and climbing
Our great exercise,
These moments of picking fruit,
In my memories I salute!


As years passed by,
We chased work,climbed
The ladder of success,
We now fondly cherish
White jambus' tree,
We so much love,
Since our days carefree!

The tree stands tall, jamoons now unplucked, just fall

Sister, live long!

Happy 50th Birthday and Many Many Happy Returns of the Day!
Dearest precious Sister,
On your birthday 50th,
May joys multiply,
May health restore.

May you live long,
Fitness to you belong,
For decades to come,
Remain cheerful and well,
By the Almighty, blessed.

May you laugh more,
Be loved our beloved,
Enjoy delights galore.

A shower of blessings,
Wishing you happiness,
Health and wealth,
With lots of good luck!

May you always be met
With right individuals,
At the right moment,
For the right purpose,
On this day and always!

HAPPY 50th BIRTHDAY TO YOU
So proud of you!

2022

Step in to 2022 with a dash of lemony zest!
Think new
Learn new
Speak words few
Actions positive,
Kindness do renew

Its 2022

May you be surrounded
By fragrant flowers,
Blessed with natural
Healing powers.

Its 2022

May you decide to rise
Out of the past
Let go, live in the Now,
Question less, use less
Of 'Why me', and just be.

Its 2022

Make peace,
Courageously say 'Adieu'
To all that happened,
Before 2022.

Yes, its just
Another morning,
Until you choose
To make it new
By what 'new' you do.

Blossom and thrive

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.

Rise

Achieve today!

For I have refined
And redefined
Achievement.

Not wasting time
Is an achievement.
Letting go worry
Is an achievement.
Laughing more
Is an awesome accomplishment.
Making a new bond,
Having a new friend,
Is an achievement.
Turning a sad memory
Into a sad smile
Is an achievement.
Praying for myself
Is an accomplishment,
Praying for others
Is an achievement.

I pray all of you achieve and accomplish today:
My way. My redefined, refined way.
Have an achievementful day! Good Morning!
Achieve this!

Good Morning!

Awake fresh!
A new day
Fresh as a leaf
Keep it tender
And fresh as green.

Start a clean slate,
With no regret
Forgive and forget,
Move on, go on,
Celebrate this new dawn.


Have a fresh green day!
May your heart feel tender and be a Gorgeous, fresh green!

Happy Day

Make your mind 
A place of worship
Enlightened, carrying
Thoughts very kind.

Make your heart
A loveful shrine,
Blissful, thankful
Radiating the Divine.




The Light within, the Light without.

Happy Dhanteras!

Poem Title: 
‘Being rich’

Rich as in
Thought,
Word,
Deed,
Values.

Rich as in
Not indebted

Rich as in
Having
A
Child

Rich as in
Having a home
In each friend's house

Rich as in
Having a smile
And
Simultaneous tears

Rich as in
Having
More than enough
To spend
And enough to spare
For a needy

Rich as in
Having a home
Filled with
Colors
And coffee stains.

Rich in pain,
And therefore
Richer in forgiveness,
And rich in
Mindfulness of trying
Not to hurt another.

Rich in love
From a little doggie
And a pretty, tall daughter.

Yes, rich in faith
Extraordinarily rich,
In the knowledge
That miracles happen.

And richest
To have you
As a divine creation
In my life!

BY AMITA SANGHAVI

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 heights
Through our open,
Un-burdened, mind,
Always to ourself remind:
To keep our thoughts,
Words and deeds aligned.

In your presence,
In your vibes,
Let each creature,
Great and small,
Of all colours,
Of features all,
Feel you are harmless,
Listen to your heart's
Compassionate call.
Make compassion your passion.

A daily celebration of the Divine in you

Share and Care
The best way 
To observe
The divine
Is to be kind
In thought,
Word and deed.
The best way to pray
Is to share and care
For all fellow beings
And living beings
Who cross our path
Or happen
To be around us.

Share and care!
Pay kind attention to those around you. Each one has a story.

Mother

Happy Birthday Mummy
Happy Birthday Mummy

Our mother
Like you
There's no other.
We love you more
Than words can utter.

For us
You did ensure
The wealth true:
Confidence
In ourself
You grew.

We are strong
Do no wrong
Take on reality
Fight adversity
As growing up
We saw you
A mother
Like none other

Our mother
Like you
There's no other.
We love you more
Than words can utter,
We love you more
Than words can utter.

Eyes

Your eyes reveal

Kindness
Sadness
Madness

Laughter
And
Glitter

Or

Bitter
And
Anger

Keenness
Meanness
Curiosness

Boredom
Or just dumb,

Desire or dream,

Or shielding shrewd
And outright rude,

A guilt sheer
Or fear clear?

Truth sneaks out
From your eyes
And
Reveals both
Your rise, your fall,
Gives a glimpse
Of your soul.

Eyes know your 'all',
Your wounds and wisdom,
Your greed, your glare,
They reflect it all.

What stories silent,
Sealed lips hide,
Your eyes
Whisper them all.
When your lips rest
your eyes work best

Happy Humming Morning!

Happy Humming!
Today
Welcome thoughts
Of hope and peace,
Negative thoughts
Just release.

Allow not
Disappointment
To stay too long,
Bring back hope
Invite love warmly
And insist laughter
Along to accompany.


Its your heart
Your mind, your soul
Your choice to control.

As hope brings
A smile along,
Hum a song,
Hum a happy song.

Happy Humming Morning!
A New Dawn

In between silences

Sheer poetry
In between silences,
A few words
Fly in,
Birds from faraway
Skies of ideas,
Carrying a new story,
In sheer poetry.

Make this morning good

May you twinkle brighter today!
Make this morning good,
For those around you,
It will get better
So much more,
for you too.

Make this morning good,
For a stranger too,
It will be better
A zillion times
For you!


For every task,
Smile behind the mask,
Walk a little extra,
Do your best,
Be your 'ultra'.

You get to decide
Your coolest version,
Be outstanding,
In thought,
In word
And
In deed,
Do rise high.

Today just outshine,
Show your twinkle,
Be a star bright,
In someone else's sky!
Make this morning good for all around you, it will be better for you too!

GUESS, GUESS, GUESS!

Pause. Ponder. Lift yourself higher.

Getting older is inevitable. But growing older is slightly different, because when you grow older, you don’t lose the sense of humor, the ability to wonder, feel the curiosity and the sense of enthusiasm as well as the sense of marvel. Are you growing older or getting old? It is a decision. Your decision. Isn’t it?
