One With The Stars

I am one with the stars
A specie from astral terrains
I am made to soar high
Higher than the eagles nest
Hence, my tent have I pitched
Far far above
Far far away, from
The shackles of mediocrity
And the snares of averageness

I will not downgrade myself
Nor shortchange my future
I cannot settle for anything lesser
Than who God made me to be

If Love Had A Formula

7AD2A5ED-EBF6-4351-9553-DEFA5646E89E

What is love? How do we define love?
Is it just an emotional outburst?
Or a lifelong commitment?
What are the limits, the boundaries of love?
If love had a formula, what would it be?

Love is seeing the best in yourself
Love is seeing the beauty in others
Love is subjective
Everyone is lovable

Love is simple and complicated
Love is intriguing and intricate
Love is neither gullible nor suspicious
Love is not a quitter

Love is finding what makes someone happy
And doing just that
Love celebrates our strengths
Love ignites our passions
Love makes us human and humane

There is perfect rest, total trust and
True companionship in love
For true love, has no fear in it

Love believes, hopes and endures
Love is our cheerleader

If only love was straightforward,
If only love had a formula,
Fortunately so, there is no formula
For love is the secret formula for love

Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder
So is love

There is faith, there is hope, there is love
There is beauty, excellence, power
But love is the best of all
And love conquers all

Valentine Haiku – God’s Love #2

Flashbacks stunned his five senses-
Sin ravaged parched souls;
Love’s rescue- a quenching spring.

#Celebrating the wonderful love of God

Notes:
Past memories amazed and lectured his full being, memories of his old life- how sin took advantage of his longings and ravaged his soul mercilessly. But through God’s Love, he was rescued; his thirst was quenched with springs of Living water.

Give A Large Smile

Give a large smile
Pretend you don’t care
Lock the door
Change the locks
Unmask your heart
Stare at the mirrors
Deep from the core
Let out a scream
Beat your chest
Release the tears
For help and healing
To the Holy One
Who loves you eternally

Please, I insist

Reach Up, Reach Out

9FA342AE-B947-45B8-A960-A9BA8D8EBF97

Your scribbled words
An enigma,
Your spoken words
A mystery,
Sudokus are made
For scholars;
Demystify the letters,
Unravel the illegibility,
Unmuzzle your freeness,
Reach up, reach out;
Send an invite to the Holy One
Who loves you eternally.

Anomalies

C30090AF-1973-4FC7-9A57-399D96E0AE6E

Kings on barefoot
Subjects on horses

Worker bees make a feast
Queen bee hunts for honey

When meerkats roar
And cheetahs quiver

When self is enthroned
And the voice of God ignored…

Anomalies tend to become lifestyle when voices of reason are unheeded.

We Are Trustees, We are Creatures

F302C0DF-63F4-4A24-B389-B9D03188679E

Emotions are different
(Fragments of thoughts) put together,
They are like (colours swirling) and turning within us,
Always (changing), never the same
Everyday, every hour (we are fighting a vortex) of emotions, fighting their overwhelming pull into a vortex of self-centredness,
It’s our constant (tug of war),
We secretly but desperately look around (in furtive glances)
(Searching for sympathisers), for helpers, for anyone who can empathise with our struggles,
But most of the times (alone, we are)
Trying to be human, trying our best to stay loyal, truthful, selfless and (committed to choices) that we face every day.

But the secret to choosing the right emotions and reasonings, is to remember that (we are trustees of our mundane hearts) and lifes. We are stewards of our lifes on earth and this should guide us in making the right choices.

We are creatures,
Created to make the right choices,
Created to serve God through serving others.

Notes: To understand this post, please refer to my previous poem Trustees of A Mundane Heart.

Trustees of A Mundane Heart

F302C0DF-63F4-4A24-B389-B9D03188679E

Emotions,
Fragments of thoughts,
Colours swirling,
Changing;
We are fighting a vortex,
A tug of war,
In furtive glances
Searching,

For sympathisers;
Alone, committed to
Choices;

Trustees of a mundane heart,
We are.

“Everywhere I go I see You right there; In the beauty of nature You shine all around,
For You are everything and everything is You; Precious Jesus, a wonderful wonder You are” (Nathaniel Bassey – Lovesong)

“Why?”

1C3996A5-2F0A-4A8C-A076-43FE6F121162

Children sometimes profusely asks,
“Why?”
They never get tired;
Yet, this word produces in us
A bitter taste the older we get;

Children wonder about everything
But adults wonder about specifics-
Love, pain, suffering, hope,
Adults ask and worry about tomorrow;

Sometimes, “Why?” has an answer,
Sometimes, no answer at all exists,

At such times,
Let us stop worrying
Let us start trusting;

Not worrying about tomorrow,
But trusting that our tomorrow,
Is in the safe, steady Hands of God.
