Blessed Moments


Blessed Moments.
(OSI Prompt: Fancy)


I FANCY
Those few moments
When I ceased being me,
Dissolved
To
Be one with you.





I found real me then,
For those few moments….

Looking up

One Single Impression: Grace


Dancing stars
Always inviting to join
To play

Unaware me
Busy in petty games,
Ignore.


His grace and
I look up

…And smile.

Caught in the process



 Champion of the cause she was.
No child labor – for she cared for children,
Fighting very hard for the cause.

Visiting places,
Meeting likeminded people,
Presentation on cause,
Explaining,
Interviews,
Discussions on TV…….

So important was fighting....
For the cause,
It took most of her time,
Most of her energy.

She hardly had any time
For her children,

Champion of the cause she was.
Known as such.

Crazy craving


Since ages....

My relentless efforts 
To merge with you
Is on.....




We meet,
We are together
We embrace,
Yet never one.
You remain you.
Stubborn.  Hard.
And I have to retreat.





Yet that crazy craving to be one with you
Makes me try again and again
Again and again……

…..Someday you will give in
And……. it will be all over.

No wanting
No desire
No craving
No loneliness.

Lonely not.

Dear friend,
We met,
We talked,
We shared, we played,
And we loved.
Hours passed
in as many moments.

                       


When it was time to go,
You left.
                   
Here I am left alone….





Yet my heart is filled with your innocent love.
My mind feels light & confident.

I can sing.
I can dance,
I can laugh,
I can read,
I can write,
I can dream,

I float in moments of
Oneness with you.

Alone I am.

Lonely not….

OSI Prompt: Lonely

Child Within

I pretend to be independent…….
Yet there are times
I want to be taken care of,
Want to be looked after,
Want to be led, held by my finger.

There are times
I just want to drop all my guards
And be carefree…

There are times
 I want to cross borders
Want to rebel…..

Yet know that I am loved,
 safe, secure,
Taken care of,
Need not worry…




These are the moments…….
I feel lonely.

Cleansing


Don’t feel like reacting,
Keeping still….


It gets heavier…..


Silently...

Eyes get wet
Filled….

It slowly drops out,
……flows……

Washing away
Many illusions.

Smile passes my face,
As I feel lighter.

Just do it


It is difficult….
…..but I will ‘try’ said she.

What she meant was,
If it is done, ‘I’ have done it
If fails, it was difficult in any case.

‘Try’ is tricky
Diplomatic,
Sitting on the fence-
Head I win, tail you lose.
Non- committing
Half hearted, at the best.

Instead, 
“just do it”
takes long way.

A different approach


Trying life

Tired me

Till I stopped trying


Now I am a relaxed witness.

OSI Promt: Try

Unexpected Guest



I wanted her.
I tried very hard to get her,
She was always in my mind,
She was always in my heart,
But she kept eluding me.




One morning I got up,
And got involved with my work,
I forgot her,
Working hard with all my heart




While I was busy working,
Someone knocked my door,

It was she! His grace bestowed.       

Success is her name.
