Dilemma—Poem

Should I,

Shouldn’t I,

Is it difficult,

Is it easy,

Will I succeed,

Will I fail,

Path seems long,

Path isn’t that far,

Shouldn’t I give it a try,

Shouldn’t I return at once,

No—I must try,

No—I must go for it,

Yes—I must believe in myself,

Yes—I will succeed.

The Silver Lining—Haiku

Looking upwards, at moving clouds,

Their freedom, makes me envious,

But the Silver lining, makes me joyous.

My Garden Today—Red Rose

Every morning, after awakening, I head straight towards my small garden. It’s a beautiful feeling to be amongst the fresh blooms, admire their beauty, talk to them, exchange smiles, and breathe in the fresh air.

Flowers teach us important lessons of life. They coexist, without being jealous of other blooming flowers around them.

In spite of their short span of life, they keep smiling, spread joy and happiness to whoever comes near them.

They only give, and do not expect anything in return. Make it a daily habit, to spend some of your time, amidst the greens.

You will feel recharged and rejuvenated.

So, What Are You Thankful For?

Every day is a blessing.

The first time, when I learnt about ‘The Thanksgiving Day,’ I was curious about the significance of this festival. Thanks to the technology, I was able to understand the importance of this wonderful festival, by Googling it.

As I understand, the festival is celebrated to be grateful for everything we have in this mortal world. Have a sense of gratitude, and express it, by words and deeds. I liked the reasons and why not?

We have the habit of taking the things we have, for granted, rather than expressing our appreciation or gratitude for it. We must do it as much as we can.

The idea of celebrating festivals in India or anywhere else in the World, is to celebrate the gift of life, to spend quality time with the loved ones, family and friends, to spread happiness. And whenever we do all this, good food and decorations are obviously there.

What’s the benefit of doing all these celebrations?

The benefits are rejuvenation, and the generation of plenty of positive energy and positive thoughts.

The thought of expressing gratitude for what we have in life is amazing. When you start counting your blessings, you will be amazed.

The Sunshine, the moonlight, the river, the seas, the rains, the crops, the forests, food, home and the list is endless.

Not to forget, Our freedom and our education.

Then our family, parents, spouse, children, siblings, friends— again the list goes on.

So, what are you thankful for in life? Please mention in the comments.

Happy Thanksgiving Day. 🙏🙏🌺🌺

The Colours of Nature—Poem

Vibrant and fragrant,

Bright and jubilant,

Oh! The lovely hues,

Affluence overloaded,

Some flamboyant, others shy,

Some fiery, others delicate,

I bow to the ultimate artist,

Feeling alive, and calm,

My soul in sync, with the creator.

Climbing Up—Poem

Planted on the ground,

They move up and around,

No fear of falling on the ground,

They remain uncrowned,

But they inspire me to climb,

Their beauty makes me spellbound.
