Even When You Face a Wall

P1000164 2.jpg

Even when you face a wall,

Remember there is life

You can grow, blossom and give out fruits…

Possibilities plenty—

Change your path, Go over the hurdle, or Break the block…

May every wall spur action!

 

Note: When I see this fresh tree, full of life, in front of the mossy, dilapidated wall, I feel the contrast and the endless possibilities in life. Hence the poem above!

 

“Be”

Life can be

befuddling

bemusing

belittling

bedazzling

beguiling

But in all this, there is a lesson– there is “be”

Advice

We want to have

A say in everything

But, seldom have the data

To say the right thing

 

Opinions are welcome—

That’s our perspective

But, forcing specific decisions

Is far from supportive

 

So, when someone has troubles

And wants a solution

We must listen with care

And guide them to one!

 

 

Watch Your Relationships

Watch your relationships.

What is it one can reconcile?

Differing opinions

Varying personalities

Contrasting behaviour

But.

One cannot reconcile

Differing principles

Varying values

Contrasting character

Watch your relationships

Decide where you want to be.

More important,

Decide where you don’t want to be!

Nature Has Answers

Nature has answers.

The cuck-koo of the koel
The chirp-chirp of the sparrow
Sounds that assuage
Many a little sorrow

The blue of the skies
The cobalt of the sea
Sights that lift
Many a broken spirit

The aroma of flowers
The fragrance of wet soil
Smells that soothe
Many a troubled mind

The sweet of fruits
The crunch of nuts
Tastes that nourish
Many a famished (or fatigued)tummy

The cool of a soft breeze
The feel of a warm sun
Touches that enliven
Many a dead hope
