Nothing Good Comes Cheap

Big Gift

Glory.
We all want it.
Glorious future.
We all desire it.
But,
It comes at a price.
Hard work.
Seizing moments.
Dedication.
Positive attitude.
Passion.
Opportunity costs.
Patience.
Tenacious mind.
Glory.
Be prepared.
Nothing good comes cheap.

From Nature’s Bosom

IMG_3002

The sound of the brook
As it chatters aimlessly,
On this boulder I rest
Strong, reliable,
Nature’s resting place;
The serene breeze
Whispering softly,
My hair fluttering about;
Towering trees
In evergreen hues,
What beauty!
Several rocks, stones,
Scattered about
Yet perfectly placed;
Elements, unique
In their own right,
Yet in harmony,
At ease, at peace
Creating a beautiful world!
But for me,
I’m lost in this time and space
As I soak in these tranquil gifts
From nature’s bosom

Easy Starters

It is always easy to start something
To begin a task is not always that hard
But,
To maintain it, to sustain it
That is the real work
To improve with fresh ideas
To bring in creativity, fresh imaginations,
To keep the crowd running back to you,
To keep the hunger afresh in your audience
Well, that is the real hard work,
A penchant for success,
A drive for progress,
An inner passion to be the best,
A desire to be better each day,
Always make this hard work appear easy.

We Are Called…

 

img_1687

We are not called to adopt secular views.
We are called to promote godly views.
We are called to promote Christ.
We are called to be the change.
We are called to overcome evil,
We are called to stand strong,
We are called to promote truth
Only the truth can set us free

Golden Opportunities

IMG_2886

Golden opportunities
Precious moments
Transient seasons
Finite chances
Boundaries and limits
Of human existence
Treasure them
Capture them
Maximise them
Document them
At the end of it all-
They only become
Vague memories
Overtaken by events

Daily Prompt: Finite

Educate The Mind

IMG_2882

I see you
I watch you
I form an opinion
I make conclusions
I give a forced smile
I avoid you…
If only I drew closer
If only I educated my mind
If only I came to the realisation
That
My distance was unwarranted
My judgements were erroneous
My conclusions were incorrect

If only I drew closer-
You are not what they say you are
You are much better-
Humorous, goodhearted, gentle
Soft spoken, lovely at heart!

“Draw nearer, look closer, educate your mind
Things are not always what they seem to be.”

Daily Prompt: Educate

You Know, I Do Wonder…

IMG_2875

You know
I do wonder,
Why are You
So into me?
What is it
About me?
Why the death?…
Why the sacrifice?…
For me?
Who am I
To merit such?…
What good
Do You find
In me?
Why bother,
Lord?
Why?…
Still mesmerised…
Your boundless love…
Priceless

“For God so loved the world…”- John 3:16

By heart

An overt tale
Etched
Firmly
In Your
Heart

What
Do You see
In me?
What
Do You know
About me?

Lord
Take me
Hold
My hand
Open
My eyes
Lead me on
Show me

He’s A Human After All

He’s a human after all
Not to be forgotten at all
He’s a husband, he’s a son
He’s a nephew, he’s a grandson
He’s a cousin, he’s a brother
He’s a granddad, he’s a father
He has needs, just like you
He can be afraid, just like you
He likes to dance, just like you
He has a family, just like you
Oh politicians!
Oh parliamentarians!
Don’t treat them like pawns,
Or toss them like paper prawns,
They ain’t puppets at your beck and call,
They are just humans after all.

Daily Prompt: Rhyme

Forgive Us, Lord

Forgive us Lord!
Oh the quest for power!
And the innate desires
for worldly pleasures…
The desperate pursuit
for exotic materialism…
The momentary lapses
Of insanity…
And our arrogant egotism…
Oh, let godliness be
Our second-nature,
Let our visceral desires
Be to please You always,
And Your presence
Our habitual abode be,
All life long.

Synonyms for visceral: habitual, second nature, innate, inner, instinctive, intuitive.

Daily Prompt: Visceral

Three-Legged Chairs

IMG_2803

Have you ever been betrayed?
Have you ever been left in the lurch?
Neglected, to fend for yourself?…

Abandoned projects
Visions left in the lurch
Blogging websites deserted
Writers gone AWOL
Dreams unfulfilled,
Like an unfinished three-legged chair!
What is going on?

Thinking of Disney’s Toy Story…
If blog sites could talk
What will they say…
If visions had emotions,
How will they feel?

If dreams, aspirations, plans, etc
Could jump out of paper and talk
How will they react?

I think they may say,
“I had so much faith in you,
You betrayed me…
Like an unfinished three-legged chair,
I’m waiting… ad infinitum…

Daily Prompt: Lurch

You Put A Spell On Me

You put a spell on me,
Like one in a trance,
Eyes burrow into my thoughts,
Words burn within,
Spellbound- unfathomable love!
In a daze I open my life,
In a jiffy You dethrone my old heart-
Waterworks, in buckets,
Droplets of joy, ruined mascara…
Lies and lustful manipulations,
All gone!
Good riddance! Bad rubbish!
Divine metamorphosis!
Absolute transformation!
A new heart! A new life!
Saved… Changed… I am!

Daily Prompt: Trance

Beautiful Day

IMG_2777

This beautiful day,
Even more beautiful,
This bride, my wife,
Refreshing, this day,
Even more refreshing
The downpours, this rain,
Sending showers of blessings,
Sealing our day
With overflowing abundance
Of fresh scented love,
Marital fulfilment,
And unspeakable joy;
We found each other,
We found love;

And, the bridegroom
Smiles from his heart,
Looks towards the heavens,
As it rains its tender drops,
He smiles again,
Knowing he has found his soul mate,
His sweet gentle soul mate,
On this beautiful day.

To be married is not a willy-nilly decision made on the whims of emotions. It’s a decision which should be made on the bedrocks of unflinching commitment, unconditional love and unreserved friendship.

Daily Prompt: Willy-nilly

Editable Life

No matter how hard I try sometimes,
To perfect my path, to organise my life…
I try to edit, delete, format, cut…
But, it never stays perfect;
So in irony,
As much as I strive for perfection,…
I accept my imperfections, infallibility,…
And leave my life teachable, editable;…
Corrections-
Journey to perfection.

Daily Prompt: Organized
