Phases

Image
Do you remember the night, the crescent Moon shone red?
Rising in the horizon just when the Sun had set?
Feeling out of place, she still arose,
Confident yet mysterious,
A sight to behold.
Unveiling a part of herself
To comfort Darkness.

A little more she revealed each day,
Shining brighter along the way.

Do you remember the Night, she never came?
When the Sun had set and in the horizon we gazed?
And then we knew, 
Cause we peered hard,
For there she was wearing a cloak of Darkness,
And how the Stars shimmered brighter than ever,
Rejoicing the grand reunion
Of Celestial grandeur.


A Jigsaw Puzzle

Image
Your Life's like a puzzle,
Did you know?
Add one piece today
But you might have to remove one the next day.

The ones that fit will stay,
The ones which don't will go away.
Enjoy the puzzle, it's just a game,
A challenge- both pleasure and pain.
Cherish each piece, cause it'll be beautiful,
But don't get attached, 
For it might not feasible.

Remember to keep moving the pieces
Till you can see
What a beautiful masterpiece it has come to be.

Happiness

Image
A cold winter evening,
Hot chocolate & marshmallows,
A good book,

Warm feet,
Happiness.

Early mornings,
The soft chirp of a sparrow,
A new rose bloom,
The fragrance of lemon grass,
Hot tea.
Bliss

Smiles all around you,
A tear gleaming in the corners of your eyes,
Hard work pays.
Quiet joy.

A call from your loved one,
Your pet waiting for you by the door as you enter,
Traveling into the wilderness,
A kiss under the stars,
Sea shells and star fish,
Making someone smile,
Dancing till your feet hurt,
Meeting a long lost buddy.

Happiness is simple.
Isn't it?

Autumn

Image
Faint golden sunlight sparkles 
Through the thin foliage of the Oak
As another golden leaf falls down
On the pathway 
Laying to rest
Amidst the hundred others.

In the crisp chilly breeze,
Even the mighty Oak shudders
As winter approaches steadily
Cloaked in white.

Nature paints in beautiful colors 
Even as she lets go
Of old dreams
For newer miracles.

Have you observed?
You are a beautiful sight too
When You are vulnerable,
Awaiting magic with no inhibitions.
An Autumn within.

Counting Colors

Image
Some days it's orange, some days it's white,
Some days it's blue, nice and bright,
Adorned in golden, she loves to slip away, 
Always loving to have her way.

Today she's dressed in purple hues
Speckled with a reddish blue,
A beauty that she is,
The Sky, 
Have you ever wondered about it too?

Dancing in the Rain

Image
The shadows shift rapidly,
The Sun makes way for the dark clouds,
Big, fat raindrops fall to the ground,
Quenching the thirst of people all around.

Water puddles as far as you can see,
Frogs skipping away,
The tiny green shoots peep with glee,
While the Koyal in the tree is quiet today.

The rains have their own charm,
For humans, plants and animals alike.

Bright green leaves dotted with sparkling drops,
Waves in the sea dancing merrily,
Birds ruffling their feathers,
The soul of the Earth rejoices with every shower.


When you're happy & you know it, clap your hands!

"Raindrops on roses
And whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things"
The words from one of my favorite songs. One of those numbers which always bring a smile to my face and instantly cheers me up. Happiness to me is a light headed feeling, of not wanting the moment to end and a glowing face. Now, who wouldn't want it to last forever? But well, it's only the absence of something which makes you appreciate it all the more. Without sounding too philosophical now, I'll now write about those which give me my dose of endorphins! 
Flowers, birds, butterflies, trees, treks, mountains, seasides, puppies, et al (except any reptiles :P) make my ears perk up! Well, you've got it right- Nature and wildlife- my weaknesses. Being amidst nature makes me the happiest. And add to that the company of my favorite people- I'll be in heavenly bliss! Travel for me always needs to be …

Dr. Oetker FunFoods- Have you tried it yet?

Image
Most of us these days have no time for a proper sit down breakfast. However, breakfast being the most important meal in a day, I usually end up grabbing a vegetable or an egg sandwich. I'm always on the look out for new cheese spreads, jams or just plain mayonnaise. So, that's when I came across the variants of mayonnaise from Dr. Oetker FunFoods. Apart from the plain mayonnaise, I also picked up the Tandoori and Burger mayo. All of these are eggless- so there's no need for the vegetarians to worry! :)

I usually make a plain mayo and lettuce sandwich when I'm in a rush. Other days I prefer sandwiches with vegetables in them. I mostly use finely chopped capsicum, carrots, onions & minced garlic. Add lemon juice to the mixture along with the mayo. Mix well and add it onto a slice of buttered toast. Cover it with another slice of toast. And voila! Yumm! Try it next time. You can also add cabbage in case you do have lettuce. 
Since quite some time now, I avoid tea in the…

Wonderings

Image
I wonder if the trees whisper , When their leaves rustle and swish in the breeze.
I wonder if the moon yearns, To come out in the day sometimes.
I wonder if the gushing water in the river, Rushes forth to reach somewhere.
I wonder if the tiny grass cry out in joy, When Dawn sprinkles dewdrops everywhere.
Oh, so many miracles, I cannot help but wonder.
How it would be if I could hear them chatter!
