Feather on the water – a philosophical view!

Is it possible?

Is it possible to be in the middle of ‘’corrida de toros’’,

without a shed of blood on ‘’traje de luces’’

or to be involved in all worldly affairs without getting really involved,

keeping your soul intact & pristine

Is possible to be like feather on the water!

Patience is a virtue!

Waiting

A patient ray of sun awaits

behind the thunderous clouds

 Calm water is hopeful

beneath the fierce surface

Success is ready to ride

the wave of debacles

 and

a seed of hope smiles

behind the shroud of despair

knowing

all changes in an instant

in the blink of an eye

storm recedes and

life basks in sunshine!

Loneliness!

_DSC2054_1_1
I read a beautiful poem on loneliness written by Mark R Slaughter.

Lonely Life
Lonely on the land I walk,
Lonely cross the sea I sail,
Lonely air of beach I stroll –
This lonely life doth take its toll.

Lonely trek of woodland trail,
Lonely mist in haze o’ dawn,
Lonely spies the bird of prey
In lonely circles all astray.

Lonely be the dark of night
When sleep is but a yearning wish,
To dream of sweet companions close,
As wine would pair with diner’s dish.

Lonely do these thoughts me make
That draw my blood of precious life;
Replace with stream of flowing pain
To bless my veins with coursing strife.

Lonely years are now my friends,
Lonely cries bereft of sound,
Lonely tears that cool my face
In lonely life of sullen pace.

I Will Grow Tall!

seed
I will break my cocoon
Don’t care if beautiful or ugly
But will turn into a butterfly
Will break all the shackles
Don’t care where or why
But sure I will fly
Move away from can do can’t do plight
Never bother what is wrong or right
Whether the dark or sun shines
Rain comes or earth becomes dry
I am a seed who knows it all
Whatever happens
I WILL GROW TALL
