July

July
The rain clouds,
Bring relief,
To the lands,
Thirsty and dry;
It's July.

Nature seems to ask not
When, what, who, where,
And why:
Some places flood,
In July,
Some are too parched,
Still very dry.

Clouds and life,
Both are so random,
Dear July,
Please put everything,
Back in tandem.

Dear June,

June, the summer holiday month
Dear June,

A lot in the world,
We find, is out of tune.

As you are coming soon,
May I remind you,
To use all your powers,
To bring relief showers.

Relief from war,
Relief from hate,
Relief from pain.

A good amount of rain,
Enough of food grain,
Please would you bring,
Energy that's new,
And fresh and healing?

Pack along,
A hopeful song,
To be sung in chorus,
Let's sing all June,
Notes in a merry tune.

Please pack all these,
And lots of good luck,
With you, as you come,
Dear June,
My dear June.
May June be cool!

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.

Teach your daughter this:

You are empowered 

If your bank account is

surplus and sufficient,

Your house help is

Regular and efficient,

If you are well-trained,

On raising your profit

quotient,

And no one dares to

Stop or question,

Your spending decision.

You are empowered

If you walk to work

Without being taunted

Or made to feel guilty

To not first give birth;

But instead encouraged

To up your own worth,

And decide if you are

Ready to bring

A life on earth.

You are empowered,

If you have your

Own house and

Medical insurance,

Not empty promises,

or false โ€˜futureโ€™

assurance.

You are empowered,

If you are not distracted

To โ€˜appeaseโ€™ as

An object of beauty,

Rather raised with

self -defence skills

And busy raising

Your immunity.

You are empowered

If your effort is

Rewarded,

Your results applauded,

But most of all,

Your smile is tear-proof,

You enjoy being

Your truly unique self,

Not pressured to be

A colour, a height,

A certain weight,

That you need

To โ€˜improveโ€™.

You are not empowered

If you are obsessed,

To be accepted by others,

or

Give yourself up,

Just to be 'approved'.

The luxury of time free,

Fill it with pleasure.

Or play musical notes,

With self be content
Or get folks together.

That you find dear,

Or get into sports gear
Or walk, explore Nature.

The luxury of time free,

Fill it with pleasure.
Enjoy it to full measure!

Spread fun and cheer,
Refresh and respire,

Or sleep deep and deeper,
Let the mind declutter,

The power of leisure
The luxury of time free,

Fill it with pleasure.
Enjoy it to full measure!

Choose what brings
Peace and adds cheer,

Regain your energy,
The weekend is here!

The power of leisure

Enjoy your day!

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

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.

Good Morning

Choose and align your thoughts.
The day has dawned


Once more reflect
On your intent,
If you want to feel
Light and content.

Match intent
With values high,
Align them with words
And realise them
In efforts and deeds.

Once more reflect
On your intent,
If you want to feel
Light and content.

Once more feel
The quality
Of the words
On your tongue.
Taste their truth,
Savour their flavour.
Some don't need
To be voiced
Right away;
Some never at all-
Use discretion for all.

Let negative thoughts
Perch and fly away
Like the birds,
Don't nestle them
Or turn them to words.

Listen to a prayer,
Keep your mind clear
Focused and well- lit,
With hope and effort.

Make the day brighter,
The mind to the Self
Cannot be an enemy
Rather make it
Freer, friendlier,
Focused, calm, brighter,
Like the sky in summer.

Good Morning, good day!

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.

September, here’s ‘orders’ to all 30 of you!

MR.SEPTEMBER, DO BEHAVE!
Mr. September!

As you have arrived,

Here,

Sign your bona fide:

You'll be kind

To one and all.

You won't barge in

With unexpected stuff.

You'll not spoil

Any plans or

Snatch any smiles

That are wide

And grins so 'on',

You won't make

Anyone forlorn,

Especially

As this Covid,

Has gone on and on.

You'll do your best,

Be hope-fulfilling,

Generous and giving

Letting all just rest.

And you -

September 2nd,

I see you sneaking in,

As you are here

So fast, already!

Come on, fix all

That's messy

Make all things steady.

Forget not

The orders I gave,

Mr.September,

You better behave!

(G๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„D M๐Ÿ˜„RNING ALL.
I HAVE INSTRUCTED SEPTEMBER IN GENERAL AND SEPT. 2nd TO BEHAVE.
๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„)

Happy 2nd September morning!

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 more๐Ÿ’.

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!
