Letting go…..


Hiding from the inevitable

Avoiding the breakdown

Denying the process
Come I say, come!

Full force and break me

Fill me with your pain
Drown me, then wash with you

Away the momentary anguish

Leave me cleaned and empty
My choice to feel the void

My blessing to fill with love

My clarity to know the truth
What’s truly mine

I can never lose

Yet given freely and abundantly replenish
This is the story of love

Never to be lost

Only to be gained
Wellspring eternal

Even for the mortal

Mesh, merge and mingle
Into every moment, everyday

Let transient slip and slide

And love shine and be forever bright

Diamond

Fragmented and splintered
Chiseled then polished
Raw yet cultured
Precious and undefeated

You are the diamond
Angularly brilliant
Independently worthy
Throughout the solitary fight

Sought for by the greedy
Hampered by mediocrity
Cajoled to conform
Yet still to stand alone

Wipe off the tarnish
Revere your elements
Withstand the pressures
Gleam from your core

For the Love of Words…

A a beautiful expression from my adopted brother this Rakshabandan season…

The power of a few heartfelt words surpasses all differences and distances, crosses all cultures and curtailments and enables embracement and acceptance…

Ordinary to Extraordinary

image
From child to adult
Tantrums and triumphs
Explorations to exhibitions

Delving in books
Exploring the possibilities
Discovering the unbelievable

Dreams being planted
Passions evoked
Worthiness unquestionable

Trials and tribulations
Successes and successors
All necessary forces

Failure or conquest
Lessons are learnt
Purpose evolving

Formation of character
Revelation of spirit
Eruption of heart

From moment to moment
Feeling the essence
Learning the jive

No goal to reach
Prize is constant
With unlocking of now

If ever ordinary
Can go to extraordinary
This is how!!

In your honor Roshan, pleasure to witness your becoming!
