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.


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

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.

Good Morning

Notice colours around you. Visualise them with glitter too.
As you go 

About your chore,

And still have

To finish many more,

Hold thankfulness,

Remember many yearn

For this normal-ness.

May peace and calm pour,

In your heart-core.

May good luck knock

At your life's door.

Have a blissful morning,

And a very lucky day.
May this day be calm and nice.

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

Hold hope today

May hope perch on your heart today
When you choose
To hold hope,
You find ways
To be bold and cope.

When you choose
To hold hope,
You are positive
And open to
Possibilities.

Hope brings anticipation.

Anticipation brings
Excitement.

Excitement brings
A bounce in your step
A smile in your heart
A sparkle in your eyes.

Have a hopeful day
with anticipation, excitement, positivity.

Wish you a bouncy, smiley, sparkly day today.

Have a Sparkly Day

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

On this day

Good Morning
Make peace,
Decide to deliver
The promise.

With ease,
Say what matters,
Let go grudges,
Just release.

Choose to cherish
The choice of ease
The choice of peace
The choice of release
Choose.
Have an easy day.
Good Morning.
Choose well.

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!

Come, December

Come, December.
Come, December.

Let’s wind up
Moments heavier,
Better un-remembered,
Hopes unanswered,
Souls departed,
Tears shed.

Let’s pack away
The Covid taandav
It did one truth endow:
We all go,
Here we may be-
A year more,
A week less,
A day more
Or a few decades,
For sure,
We do not know.

Come December,
Help us overcome.

Come December,
Bring a cool 2022
With tides better,
Bring laughter
Lots of joy too;

Let’s love greater,
Let’s all live
Closer and on lesser.

Come December,
Help us vow
And always remember
To add love everywhere
We come and go.

Let's pledge too,
To preserve Nature,
Multiply laughter
To be kinder,‘humaner’
Make our 2022 lovelier
While we are here.

Life is a gift, unwrap gently, accept or change, live fully!

Have a laughterful day and a happy morning.

Scores of laughters on shores of life
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 pure
Will many ails cure.

Laughter is the best medicine

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.

Colours of Fall

The charisma of colours
The palette's overtures
Leaf-falling reminders
Nature's gestures
All welcomes
End in departures.

I have breathed
Since
47 13th Octobers,
Who knows,
Maybe ordained
A few 'mores',
To accomplish
A few endeavours
And complete
A lot more chores.

Here's October
With 31 days galore,
Maple leaf carpets
Welcoming 2021's
Last quarter.





Collecting life in moments

A day full of possibilities

Through small actions
Just think each hour,
Within your power,
What can you do?

You've 7,200 minutes
Plant seeds
Of flowering trees
Just for minutes 15
To find one morning,
Smiling flowers 16!

Left with 7185 minutes
Imagine how much life
You can fill in these!

Have a positively action-filled
And happening day.

May you choose to:
Nourish, accomplish,
and flourish!
Take care.

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

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!

NURSERY RHYME: Vary very very

One more poem kids! Enjoy😇🌷🌼🌻🌺🥀🌹🏵💮🌸⚘

Sunflower, a sunny flower,
How I love you,
You are bright and sunny too.

Lilac and lavender,
Forever, a floral wonder,
Soft like velvet
Are Violets to touch,
I love you so much.

Roses red or Lilies white
Daisies pink or Marigolds more,
Next to what
By whose side,
Go in my bouquet
I can't decide!

Blue bell, a true blue
Upright, smiling bold,
On my palm a delight
So light to hold.

All flowers we like,
Love their sight
And sweet smells too,
None are alike
All vary very,
Just like me and you!
