You rule our hearts naturally,              You are our dearly,  
You smile so graciously, You breathe so gently,
You speak so softly,
You move so delicately,

In every way remain blessed lovingly,
Now and for multiple decades to come,
You remain our precious, niece, our only one!

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.

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

Who are you?

Be clear. To fly high, the mind, like the sky, ought to be clear.
What are you? 
You are your mind,
You heart, body, soul.

You are the ‘are’
Not yet the ‘were’.

So you are:
The present,
The breathing 'you'.

You are the time you have left with you.

So when you ‘do’ something,
With your body,mind, heart and soul,
You actually give yourself whole.

To what?
That you decide.
How you dedicate your life.
Your focus,
Your time here,
You either 'spend'
or you 'devote'.

For what use,
What purpose,
You choose.

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

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!

Dedicated effort

Follow the light within
Spend time in what you love to do. Do it well. Do it to perfection. Then raise the bar of perfection and challenge yourself to do more and better. Break your own records. Compete with yourself. Be it your passion for Art, Academics, Sports, Service to the planet. 
Go on. Where you put your total devotion and time, it is your dedication. Effort in such a focused way brings success. Devoted time with effort towards perfection is dedication.
Dedication makes legends.
Find out what holds you. What beckons you. What appeals to you. Know your passion. Then go pursue it tirelessly. Make it your HABIT.
Success will salute you, magically the universe will conspire and open doors for you. Follow your heart. Follow your own light.
