A – Z poetry : “Z”

A long awaited – Z !

Zindagi mein kya hai kami,
kyun hai aankhon mein ye nami,
zara sii khushi,
zara sii hasi,
zara saa pyaar,
zara sii takraar,
bhar de zindagi mein bahaar
(What scarcity do we have in life, why are our eyes tearful, a little happiness, a little laughter, a little love, a little tiff, fills life with colours of spring)

Zamane ki ye zanzeere,
todd ke udd chale
hum jeene apni zindagi,
iss zamane ko chod chale
(We break these chains of the world to fly away,
To live our life… we leave the world behind)

zaya yuhi na karo ye zindagi
zakhmo ko pyaar se bhardo
zamin se jude raho aur
zabardast udaan bharo
zahir karo apni pehchaan
Jee bhar ke Jee lo ye ek kimati zindagi.
(Do not just waste this life
Heal the wounds with love
Be in touch with the ground
and soar high above
Manifest your identity
Live this precious life to the fullest)

Moving On…

move on

Time went on and
so did I
finally gloomy winds
said a good-bye..

The sun rose
and shined with glory
life started to write
yet another story..

The breeze promised me
that the waters will be calm
dreams went on
holding future in my palm..

I saw the moon
which gave me solace
and I walked ahead
to a bright new place..

moving on

A – Z poetry : “W” (another entry)

World of My Own

Where the seas end in dying gasps,
where the sun splits into a whole half,
where the rain and soil they meet in glee,
is that from where it comes to me?

Where the end of sorrows is but a thought,
where a world of peace is now long lost,
where dark thoughts seep into deep deep depths,
is that from where it comes to me?

Where, into the deep caverns of the mountains of my heart,
where…will it lead me…I wonder…
Where now lies the hope within me…
poem…my poem…where life I see…

Where from do you come to me,
Where…through what…I beg to thee,
where is thy reside, thy long lost abode…
poem…my poem…where life I see…

my world

A – Z poetry : “V”

VALKYRIES

 pic

Victory for those who  dies courageously,

Valuable are the souls who fought nobly,

Valhalla awaits the arrival of the brave ones,

Vanity is never a pleasure for the destined sons…

Vendetta brings on the verge every clan,

Velour clothed men die in valor,

Valley of Fjordane echoes with trots,

Valkyries arrive with a predestined notch!

Vanquishing every evil of the region,

Vanish the storming Valkyries in the verdure,

Versing a true form of Valiance,

Vignetting the history of Odin and his warriors! 

Written by the incredibly talented poetess Soumya! Must check out her blog and book…

A – Z poetry : “T” – another one

let_life_happen

TUSSLES WITH LIFE!

Though we want to enjoy

Though we want to be carefree

Though we want to let it go

Though we want to let life happen

Tis’ we who are scared?

To take the plunge

To do what we want!

There are plenty who say it is a mind-game

There are equally plenty who play lame

Time, duties bound us they say,

Tremble they do, when life makes them its prey!

The question is to live life willed by our wont?

The question is to risk it all and be selfish?

The question is, “Are liabilities important?”

The answer is break free!

The answer is the chains that bind us are our own creations!

The answer is do not get lost, and let life happen!

revive

Reminiscing the days,

Remembering the one that got away.

Reason says, “It’s okay”,

Regretting is such a waste.

 

Remove yourself from yesterday,

Recognize your mistakes.

Recall it wont hurt you anyway,

Remind yourself of today.

 

Reality sinks in,

Rays of truth are blinding.

Radiates like the bright sun,

Revoking all evil.

 

Rebuild your life,

Restore your faith.

Reflect how you changed,

Rest assured that, you’re okay.

queendom

Quest for Queendom

Quench your Qualms

and Quibble not;

Quit to Quaver

and ignore the Quandary.

Start your Query

and Quest for truth …

then life will follow to the Quick

Do not be Quaint

nor be Quadruped;

Question deeply

and ponder your Quotes.

Find that Quality

in Queerest Quarters…

then you will get that Quid pro Quo

Embrace the Quirky

and do not Quip;

search for Quiet

and use your Quickness.

Quiz all Quantity

and Quite each thing…

then Queendom surely is to come…

A – Z poetry : “P” (another entry)

Paralympics

Phenomenal Paralympics

Paragons of courage,

Phenomenal was the stage,

Paralympics was the occasion,

Proud was every nation.

Pain had no place,

Pleasure on each face,

Participants with such high spirits,

Pleased audiences with full credits.

Performances like heroes,

Perception of the world was transformed,

Practicing sport like never before,

Praiseful waves stormed.

Paralympics instilled in every human being,

Prevailed only one feeling,

Pointless is the disability,

Precious is their ability to create

Provided with even such fate.

Pistorius is one such person,

Privileged I am to mention,

Persuaded his desire to be the best,

Placed was he above the rest.

Provided such immense inspiration,

Paradigm of champions at heart,

Priceless is their endless contribution.

pearls-of-wisdom

Pigeons which sing
Peacocks which dance
Petals of love
Perfumes by chance
Purple dreams of
Pleasant tomorrow
Prosperous moments
Parting with sorrow
Purity of e​motions
Patience of mind
Peace of heart
Prosperity hard to find
Poems of joy
Portraits of strife
Pictures of bliss
Painting of life
Pearls of memories
Pleasures of rain
Peers and friends with
Promises of meeting again
Painful memoirs of
Poignant distress
Peppered on which lies
Priceless success

Seasons of Awards :)

Inspiring Blog Award and a Versatile Blogger Award from Shilpi

Very Inspiring Blog Award from Rachna

Its always nice to get awarded for something, and even better when you don’t expect it at all. My heartfelt thanks to Shilpi and Rachna.

versatile blogger nominations

~ Thoughts on Versatile Blogger Award ~

The sheer sub-title of my blog – “versatility is not an over-rated virtue” explains my stand on this.

Everyone is special, unique and versatile. Everyone can multitask. It is just a matter of recognizing your self.

very inspiring blogger award

~ Thoughts on Inspiring Blog Award ~

There are two sides to the same coin, hence someone who inspires others is in turn inspired by someone else.

For many days now, I have been thinking, who inspires me? After a lot of thought I realized a lot of people and a lot of things inspire me.

So is it good or bad?
Am I easily inspired/manipulated or should I think I am surrounded by inspiring things by default.

Maybe it is a state of mind.

Many resolve to Gods and prayers when they’re low. I just look at people and things around me and it elevates my faith.

Even the feeling that I am inspiring inspires me!
