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.

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…

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.

Dualities of Life

In trying times, try trying harder.You can do it.
When you are in a somber mood, meditate on these words. Just sit thinking of the unexpected in life that throws us out of gear. In your thoughts,  reflect on how often we are imbalanced in our understanding of  the dualities of life. We seem to only want the good, the happy, the wellness/the healthy, the easy/ the comfortable, the best. Naturally. We must. That is absolutely normal and a must.
But when the co-existing dualities occur- the bad, the sad, the illnesses,the difficult times, the challenges, the disturbing scenarios, the unexpected: are you somewhat upset or totally upset? Are you unwilling to accept or just unprepared? Do you wish the bad times just go away?
But the dualities are there-they are just there.NO ESCAPE. The other side of the coin is just THERE.
Finding your equanimity and balance helps, and accepting what you cannot change and changing what you can, is within your means as you are bestowed with the powers language and discretion: our two empowering tools as humans.
So, go with the flow. Be patient in hard times, and use your good times to become better, with constant self-improvisation.

You can choose. You can do it.
Self improvise!

By Amita Sanghavi

Disentangle

From little to more,
We are entangled
In daily life
Our mind and heart
Tired and mangled.

Take a deep breath,
Now with force exhale,
And let it all go,
Repeat again and again,
Till you know
The heaviness is gone,
You don't feel
Overwhelmed and low.

To yourself
Just remind,
To:
Disentangle,
Distance,
Detach.
You can't always
Yourself grind,
Free yourself
From burdens,
From 'Musts'
And 'Shoulds'
Do not your mind,
So strictly bind.

Life takes care
Of itself,
There are times
To put in every effort,
To be in the front,
And at times,
It's your moment,
To let go,
With grace bow,
To hold back,
Withdraw and rest,
And pray for the best.
This too shall pass

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.

What if…

Comforting thoughts
If we've lost
A near and dear one,
May we find within
Patience and solace,
That they're resting
In a better place

What if
Death was for them
Rest and relief?
They could not bear
The suffering,
Take not the pain,
So left this life
And the soul reached
A beautiful realm
Much greater, higher.

Let us perhaps
Hold this belief,
To lessen the sorrow,
A comforting thought
Maybe we can borrow.

Accept fully,
This journey
To the other realm
Follows cosmic time,
Not an age in number
As in temporal time.

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

Don’t feel like

If you don't feel like    
Starting the day,
Your chores and duties
Confuse and overwhelm you,
The sigh is longer
And heavier than usual,
Then sip your coffee slower,
Remind yourself,
'I choose to be braver'
Breathe and feel
The air expelled,
Close your eyes
And imagine
The clouds moving,
The day too
Will glide through.

You will lose some,
Win one or two,
Just remind yourself,
I'll try better,
Worries I surrender.

A day isn't too long,
If things go wrong
I will set them right,
Effort and acumen,
And grace and grit
To me belong,
To me belong.

MAKE THE DAY GOOD.
You can choose.

Detach from Fear

Fear and fall
You may feel fear, 
Sometimes fleeting,
Sometimes intense,
At times momentary,
But seems ever-lasting.

Yes, its natural,
Yes, you have fear,
But I guarantee,
Fear you can conquer.

Having constant fear,
Your mind heavy,
Foggy and unclear,
The victory wheel
How will you steer?

Both feet
Not grounded,
One down,
One up in the air,
Won't you fall,
Come on,
Stand up tall!

Fall and fear,
Fear and fall,
Go together,
Neither is fair,
So do take care.

Don't remain uncertain,
With one shaky foot
Stuck mid-air,
Blank gone the mind,
Empty eyes just stare.

That's how it feels
When fear breeds
And doubt grips,
So stand alert,
Ready to go,
On your toes,
Defeat these two foes.

Fear robs
Your confidence,
In yourself,
In your capability
In your potent
You must trust

At any cost,
What's lost,
You must
Just re-earn.

The midnight oil
You must burn,
Re-prep, re-learn,
Slowly but surely,
Your confidence
You can re-earn.

Your faith
You must restore,
Do pay heed,
Do you hear?
Detach from fear.

Living is thriving,
Not 'safely' surviving,
Be in control,
Your road,
Your life,
Your car,
You are driving!

Life's thrills
Begin beyond
Doubt and fear,
Live life bravely
Fuel with excitement,
Drive mile after mile,
With a confident smile.

Regain my dear
Your strength
Your power.

Beyond fear,
There's much more,
So much more!
Push fear away

Re-try, re-fly

Build Resilience: Re-prepare, Re-attempt.
In this steep flight, 
You tried, you fell.
At you, the world
Will love to yell
'Fail fail fail'.

To your Self
You will tell:

I will perch a while,
Then re-fly,
And aspire
A higher sky.

Life is a vast ocean,
I remain resolute
I am far above
All this negativity
And fearful commotion.

I have succeeded
In a million things,
Done everytime better
In the first, second
Or next attempt.

I disallow
A single instance
To belittle
My esteem,
Or break
My confidence.

I will always
Choose wise,
To reach high,
Re try and re fly
To a new sky.

Never ever give up!

COME, SEPTEMBER!

COME, SEPTEMBER
Bring some melody
Lessen the cacophony
Come,September,
Heal the ailing
Brighten the paling.

String hearts together,
Make tempers milder,
Come,September,
Let's hear melodies,
Begin soothing
Heavy, hurtful memories.

Come, September,
Remind us our cheer
And patience
And put our lives
Back in forward gear.

Forward is the way

Compassion

May all choose Compassion
Halt a moment,
Stop! Save a child,
Listen to the lament,
Life for love is meant,
Rise above discontent,
Revise your intent,
And choose to be,
The One to help
To nurture and care,
And let each of us
To the 'other'
Be truly'God-sent'.

Draw the line.

Life is not about just having. Life is more about living. Life is more about experiencing rather than accumulating. Money is no doubt very essential for enabling empowerment. There are no two things about it. But to live less in order to earn more and just have more at the cost of too much stress and no fun is where we need to truly reflect and slow down on the chase, if we have inadvertently fallen into it in the first place. Life is more when you follow your heart with your mind open and in control. Decide where to draw the line. Its your life and your time on the planet is your greatest gift to live it fully and fulfillingly. Balance is the key. But do not wait too long to do what you really feel like. Do not keep pushing away your heart’s desires too far, too long. Go live well and live more💝.

One day at a time

When in life,
There's no rhythm
There's no rhyme
No laughters chime,
A tear glistens
You can't even sigh,
Your breath feels muffled
Each time you inhaled
It felt like an effort
And you struggled,
At that juncture,
When every nerve
You feel will rupture,
Just be in silent plea
Really pray to the Divine
and sense the silence
And hear the quiet,
Say to self,
One day, at a time.






A new day, a new way…be AWESOME today!

Be YOU and do MORE!
Work becomes effortless

When you perform

With keen interest

And sincerity.


When you do your best

Out of anxiety,

You block the flow

Of fresh ideas.


When you do your best

Calmly and with love,

Your ideas like a fount

Seem endless and

Excite you to do more.



This brings magic

To your work,

This is the 'extra'

In the ordinary:

The extraordinary.



Choose well!
