Tell us about a time when everything actually turned out exactly as you’d hoped.
Photographers, artists, poets: show us PERFECT.

That house, that car
that dream job is mine
I can do wonders
With a wave of my magic wand

Pride knows no reason
No logic, no emotion
Looking up at the skies
One forgets the ground under

An inflated ego
Swelling with pride
Strayed by delusion
Claims mastery over nature

Every wave in the ocean
Was created by water drops
Can the wave forget
Its origin, its cause

As we eat that morsel of daily food
Do we spare a thought
For the farmer, the sun, the rain, the plough
The trader, the workers, the driver ,the mother?

So when everything works
Exactly as you had hoped for
Do not forget the unseen efforts
That make miracles happen!

The Essence

April 30, 2011 17 comments


From the moment we open our eyes
To the instant that we sleep at night
A miracle unfolds in front of us
And yet we are oblivious

The clouds at dawn rise
And the sun rays shine through
Dew drops on flowers shine
And birds fly high into the sky

The inspiring beauty of morning
The ball of fire rising
A gentle wind blows by
Amazing , wondrous and spectacular

Looking at natures splendour
My mind cant help but wonder
If so captivating is your creation
Then how infinite must be your beauty

You are the essence of life
You create, sustain and destroy
The life force that enlivens everyone
Unborn, indestructible and immutable

Inconceivable, pure and eternal
I cannot fathom you
Yet I seek to know you
Every moment of the day

Shower your grace upon us
So that we revel  in your love
So that we may feel your presence
Every moment of our lives

Shower your grace upon us
So that we co-exist with nature
So that we learn to share and care
Every moment of our lives
