Happy Teacher’s Day

Should I thank you life?
Should I thank you Life,
For what you have taught me?
It is irreversible and unforgettable.
You give no second chance
There is no time
For a backward glance.

You have set
The toughest lessons
And sudden twists
And unexpected turns
And all this
On slippery and steep pathways,
With no promises of getaways.

You give no hint
Of the next test
So brutal are your methods of teaching,
So Life, tell me
How do I thank you,
For being my ruthless,
Ultimate Guru?

The answer-less questions of life

May 2022 arriving soon

Come (what) May,
Let’s positive stay.
May in May,
You healthy stay.

May in May
Your wealth
Increase day by day.

May in May
You laugh
And happiness
Come your way.

May in May
Flowers grow
In your path
And sweetly sway.

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

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

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?

Grief

Grief is never brief.

From it,

There's no relief.

Let it shed

From your heart,

Autumn after autumn,

Leaf after leaf,

Tear after tear,

Drop by drop.


Bare eyes,

Bare branch,

Bare heart,

Just continue to live,

Dhak-dhak, dhak-dhak,

Beat after beat...


As you walk on,

Mile after mile,

Remember:

Life is brief,

Accept grief,

With it reconcile,

Try once more to smile.

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…

When you laugh

Laughter beautifies you!
When you laugh,
Your heart sings,
Your laughter sounds
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 smile๐Ÿ˜Š.

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.

Heartfelt

All that is true to self is heartfelt.

All that is heartfelt is sensitive.

All that is sensitive is caring.

All that is caring is loving.

All that is loving is gentle.

All that is gentle is delicate.

Like the breeze

Gently touches

The soft petals

And makes the flower sway,

Lead a heartfelt

Gentle day today.
