Gather Yourself…

Gather yourself

Like you do
Flowers for prayers
In the morning
One by one
Till your basket
Overflows

Gather yourself
Like you do
Strands of silk
To weave
Into something
Exotic

Gather yourself
Not because
You’ve come apart
But because
You are the part
That completes

You

Tell Me…😊

Is it only me
Or
Do you wait too
For the hook
Of a new book
To sink into you
And grab
Your heart
And mind
And
Take you
To an unknown world
You always wanted
To find…?

Or else
You might wander
And
Another book ponder
Leaving the first
Unread
Half its words
Unshed
Like clouds that form
But
Do not rain
Even though you wait
In vain…?

Sometimes… 

The dance is always within us

Sometimes we forget the rhythm 

The song is always within us

Sometimes we forget the lyrics

The story is always within us us

Sometimes we forget the words

The answers are all within us

Sometimes we forget the questions

Everything that we need, is there

It’s just that we forget…. 

Morning Thoughts 

Woke up to rain today morning

Heavy grey skies and slight breeze

Ruffling the fresh leaves on trees

To lie in bed or simply walk out? 

No need to deliberate, curse or shout

I wore my keds and simply walked

Through gentle rain, drivers gawked

Down I went as the road curled

With droplets landing like little pearls

On my weathered fleece jacket

And worn out keds

I saw the world through drops on my specs

And this thought then unfurled

Am I a world in a drop

Or a drop in the world?

A Bird Thinks…

A Bird Thinks…
Deep and safe in the bushes, it’s time to make a nest

Perfect, secure and comfortable, a quiet place to rest

I’ll have to work fast and hard, short list a bush or two

See if it fulfils my criteria, that is the very first thing to do
Now, collect the most flexible twigs, make sure they are the same size

They’ll be easy to curve and mold, make a perfect bowl to hold the precious prize

I’ll work fast and furiously, letting nothing get in my way

Soon, when the nest is ready, thats where my lady will stay
The eggs come soon enough and there is excitement in life anew,

Between caretaking, safeguarding and nurturing there is little else to do

Oh! The babies are so small and helpless, they fill my heart with pride

I’ll take care of their every need, I’ll never leave their side
They are growing up so fast now, how beautiful they look

Stronger and sturdier by the day, giving back more love than they ever took

Life is so perfect now, my lady, my babies and I 

I wish I could hold on to it, delay the time they’ll want to fly
One day when I come from work, I’ll be greeted by a different sight

The young ones, on the periphery of the nest, ready for their very first flight

Their joyous laughter will fill the air, I’ll try and steady my heart

Despite trying to slow time down, it’s finally time to part
They are ready for their maiden flight, I give them a tip or two

But deep down I know they’ll manage, they’ll know the right thing to do

So, fly my babies, fly high, new journeys you undertake

Remember, no matter where you go, our love will follow in its wake….
