Apple cart upset!

IMG_6167

Life’s milestones and achievements
Chronological and geometrically
Predictably livable
Despite being boring
Suffocating and imprisoning

All is fine
So long you follow
Societal norms.

This is how it’s suppose to be
This is what we’ve been condition
To believe.

Due to apparent successes
Fallacies repeated
Failing model denied.

Causal factors
Consistently appear
Inherent in basic human nature.

Aspirations for potential,
Desire
Passion
Growth;
Turn up unexpected at any given time.
Apple cart upset!

Membranes broken
Barriers busted
Cries for freedom.

Now labeled
Wild
Unruly
Lost.
Apple cart upset!

Can I let them roll?
My apples?
Of pain
Regret
Neglect
Sorrow
Passion
Desire
Growth

Or just pick them back up
Assemble
Square up
And box….

Happy 19th Birthday

Young lady!
Who are you?
Big brown eyes
Spirit of the stars
Beaming power and light…

Young lady!
Where are you?
Skipping little steps
Spirit of the adventurer
Inviting intrigue and wonder…

Young lady!
What are you?
Precious wise soul
Gift from God
Showing love and kindness

Young lady!
Why are you???
Find your reason
Ultimate opportunity of life bestowed
We wish you all

so you can unfold…

Poof!

What used to upset
Rock, overturn my boat,
No longer controls
The sway of my day

No matter the shock waves
My steel rod nerves
Come from my heart’s
Tranquil waters

The ripple and waves
Grow and threaten,
But I’ve learn no fight
Is quite the answer

Steer instead
With kindness and faith
And strength will arrive
To save the day

A little focus
A lot of love
And oh by golly
The demons have gone!

Bloom from Love

img_3748

Gloriously my heart opens
What can I possibly fear

You shine your love
So direct and radiantly

Through the many miles
Scaling the galaxy

Tireless, relentless
Never to be absent

Whether a ray or blast
With clouds attempting to overcast

How could I not
Be ready to receive

Each day I bloom
My core coming through

In all my glory
It is you I have come to know

You teach to be constant
Stray not from the focus

Each day making the effort
Is so partĀ of the play

My beauty is the reflection
The peace, the love
You shine my way

Challenge

Challenge

You are in this universe.
Is this not evident?
You stand on this here earth
Breathe this plentiful air
Do you not?

Or

Is the universe in you?!
What?! The stars above?
The mountains and canyons?
The seas and oceans?
This glory of God?!

How could all that be contained in me?! You ask..

Close your eyes
How deep can you dive?
How high can you fly?
The challenge is there..

Did you even know this?

Your depth is in
What lies beyond
Within,
Constantly sustaining
Constantly renewing

Learn how to soar!
On the wings of this flight
The breeze so fresh
Time is rendered ageless.

The possibility is here
Whilst you are breathing, alive
How can you know? you ask
Have you not yet felt gratitude? I ask

Have you not felt awe?
Have you not yearned for more?
Dig deep, inside and out
Scratch beyond the surface..

Past this illusion
The mundane, the routines
Find courage
Find your worth..

Then live as King
And servant both
As the greatest gifts
Both are acknowledged and unfold!

 

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!
