All about me

Explain why you chose your blog’s name and what it means to you

The circumstances and events that shape my life are like the images in a kaleidoscope.  They are ever changing and ephemeral.  These events have shaped  me and influenced me and make me what I am. I write here what comes to my mind or based on daily prompts.  There are also random bursts of inspiration  – A creative flow from the deep recesses of my mind. An outlet to express my emotions.  An expression of love, a celebration of success, an inspiration on the joys of life and a search for the truth.

I would also like my writing to inspire noble causes like education for the poor, standing up against injustice and corruption, racial injustice and other ills in our society.

As I watch these events go by I know they are but like changing seasons reflecting different moods.  I hope that my writing will serve to inspire you the reader to find something in common.  I hope that my writing can be a voice for those who have no voice.

Above all, I am reminded that I am just a witness to all this.  I am part of a wonderful community of bloggers  who  can write to inform, to educate, to share, to lift the spirits, to lighten the mood, to seek the truth, to inspire with poetry, stories, art, travel and photography.

Out of breath

October 25, 2014 Leave a comment

We all seem to insist on how busy, busy, busy we constantly are. Let’s put things in perspective: tell us about the craziest, busiest, most hectic day you’ve had in the past decade.

Frantic  feet shuffle to and fro
Cars and buses zoom across the street
Its yet another busy day
In the concrete jungle

For some its the rush to work
For another a rush to to catch the flight
An opening ceremony to address
A closing down sale that cannot be missed

A woman with labour pain screams
An ambulance siren  cries for attention
A wedding to attend here, a birthday party there
People scamper  in all directions

Our cravings multiply day by day
No control to our indulgence
You have everything you need
Yet there is a void so deep

Where is your destination, O mind!
Thoughts keep shuffling like a pack of cards
Have you found what you seek
Is it glory, love, success or revenge?

The world outside is just an illusion
Senses chasing objects of desire
Turn back from this mad chase
What you seek is within you
