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.

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

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.

And happiness
Come your way.

Flowers grow
In your path
And sweetly sway.

For this to happen,
Let's together pray.
In May, may peace come forever to stay.

Good morning

Wear dimples of grace and gratitude in your heart, and beauty will peep out of your smile.
May all go well today.
May troubles melt away.

Wish you a bounce
In your step,
Happy and childlike,
May your heart sway.

May the day be simple
Make you just smile,
And show your dimple.
There are miles and miles of smiles just because of your smile.

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.

How about…

Being Sunny today…
How about...
Smiling
Without any reason today?
How about...
Singing
With(out) tune today?
How about...
Joking and laughing
On yourself today?
How about...
Giving up a 'must do' today?
How about...
Facing towards the Sun and simply being happy
today?
Being Sunnier, Sunniest today?

A beginner’s mind

All fresh, all new and filled with anticipation💗
I wish you, 
An idea new.

I wish you,
A beginner's mind,
No past to rewind.

May your heart,
Hold anticipation,
And affirmation.

May your eyes,
Find more possibilities,
Than see otherwise.

Go ahead this week,
Hopeful, not meek,
Follow your dream
Doubt-free,
Go, seek!

I wish you smile,
As you walk,
Mile after mile,
With a spring,
In your feet.

May soft petals be underneath your feet now and always.

Half full

Half full and fuller,
May you sing, dance, live cooler
Half full and fuller,

Very cool and cooler,

May your riches multiply,

May your effort intensify


Not a fool or a loser,

Be in gratitude forever,

A heart brimming over

With hope and love

Flowing clear,

Trust in yourself

Stronger,

Faith in yourself deeper,

May blessings

On you always shower,

May Grace be

Your invincible power.

Feel joy and laugh fuller

Worth

Is the thought worthwhile or worthless?
As a thought visits,
Check its worth
Allow its presence
If it is of positive
And of good essence.

Worthless thoughts
You must discard.

A thought worthwhile
Is the one that
Brings you peace,
Or a smile.
Me and my thought

I’m not sure

😇
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

Heard?

Hush,
Heard the whisper?
A sound softer,
But so much sweeter?

Hush,
Heard the whisper?
A sound quieter,
Yet so much truer?

Hush,
Heard the whisper?
A sound fainter,
Yet so much wiser?

Hush,
Hear the whisper:
A sound, a murmur,
That's
Softer,
Clearer,
Fainter,
Sweeter,
Truer,
Wiser.


Listen to your heart's whispers today.
Hear your heart whisper…

The luxury of time free,

Fill it with pleasure.

Or play musical notes,

With self be content
Or get folks together.

Peace and adds cheer,

When you laugh

Laughter beautifies you!

Like a bell that rings,
Your soul sighs
And your mind heals,
How light it feels!

Like a ray,
You spread joy
Mile to mile,
When you smile😊.

Smile and laugh more,
Increase your
Joy score,
Hope you aren't being
A grumpy bore!
Just laugh it off, whatever it is. Choose your battles wisely; let go the rest.

Wishing you a super rich day!

Smile wider!
Smile wider. 
Grin broader.
Chuckle louder.
Laugh longer
Beam brighter.

May you be blessed and showered with these riches today!
Grow rich in joy!

As the day unwraps

As the day unwraps
Its seconds
Its minutes
And its hours,

May it contain
Plenty of gifts
A wealth of laughter,
Some ideas that sparkle.

May it contain
No ill will,
May all sick heal.

Have a day of riches
And fulfilled wishes.
Unwrap…

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!

Morning!

Think high
Usher in a mission,
That takes you close,
To realise your vision!

Usher in a resolution,
That guides your move,
And your every motion.

Usher in a celebration,
2023 is few weeks away,
Optimistic, do stay! 

Make it a magical day, 
Do your very best,
In every possible way,
And then let go, rest
Accept God's will, pray!
Usher in new ways, and be
at the
‘Top of the world’
Today!

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!

Good morning. Today: Use your wings

Fly higher, stronger, longer.
Imagine

Imagine
Flying on the wings
Of 'YES' thoughts,
Think of great things!

Imagine
Flying on the wings
Of positivity
And all it brings,
Seek skies beyond dreams!

Imagine
Flying on the wings,
Of peach pink pages
Filled of words
Of great possibility,
of realised potentiality.

Just let go thoughts,
That are self-limiting,
Break free,
Grow and bow,
Like a tree!

Envision,
A multitude of views,
Thoughts,
In all positive hues,
Words,
In many shades of ink,
Eyes wonder-wide,
See all ideas link.


Welcome to this world,
Of imagination unfurled,
Get up, realise it all,
Plonked on a sofa,
Dare not sit curled!

Rise, arise, awake,
This morning
Is as good as you make!
Make it better,
Imagine now-
How,how,how,
Go go, go now!
Best morning ever!

Happy Children’s day India!

A poem for kids:

'My Train Journey'
'My Train Journey'
My train journey
Was just lovely,
I met kids
Who were funny,
We laughed a lot
At each station
Hot snacks we bought.

Chhuk chhuk
Chhuk chhuk
Chug chug
Chug chug
Went the train,
The rhythm felt
Like a refrain.

I know not when
A thug came
A thief he was,
Who stole a pack
Of my croissant plain;
I thought to complain,
But my train started
So it would go in vain.


Chhuk chhuk,
Chhuk chhuk,
Chug chug,
Chug chug,
Went the train,
The rhythm felt
Like a refrain.

I watched peacocks
I think I saw a fox,
I now closely guarded
My chocolate box.

And all the while
As the train sped
Mile after mile,
Thinking of Granny
My face had a smile.


Chhuk chhuk
Chhuk chhuk
Chug chug
Chug chug
Went the train,
The rhythm felt
Like a refrain.

I slept off then,
And didn't know when
My station came!
As I heard the name
Mumbai CST announced,
I rushed at the door,
And almost fell
On the station floor!

Thank God on board
I was travelling light,
Quickly Grand Pa held me,
And hugged me tight.
Chhuk chhuk chhuk chhuk,
chug chug chug chug

A morning wish

Have a breezy easy day😇
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,
And execute duties,
With a determined Will.

Wish you a day,
Of accomplishments,
Full of fine vibes.
Breezy moments of life

Saal Mubaarak

May joy fill up your heart!
May your new year 
Be filled with cheer
Your mind crystal clear
Lots of lovely time
Spent happily with
Your near and dear!
Wishing you
A happy, healthy
And prosperous
New year!

Enter November!

Are you shawl-ready?
The month eleventh,
Cool in the desert,
Cold elsewhere,
Freezing minus ten,
Speeding to year-end.

Glance back perhaps
The 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.

Gratitude is the best attitude

Sundays

Sundays, lovely sundays, 
No rushing to work,
No hopping on buses,
Or catching trains,
Or missing subways.

No early wake up call,
No hurry, no haste at all,
No alarms ringing,
Lazy waking,
And lazier rising.

Leisure short and sweet,
Sunday's a treat!
But this Sunday,
Get busy,
Get ready,
Decorate the home
Bright, all lit.

Favourite foods cooking,
Special savories
Yummy, spicy and crunching,
On Diwali sweets
Don't yet start munching!

Shop to shop hopping,
Shopping, more shopping,
Getting busy inviting,
And rangoli making.

Celebrate and cheer,
Diwali's here!
Get ready!
