Q – Quietude is Queenly #AtoZ 2018

C31A35E4-4963-4586-BC3B-8E7DA7751F18

Quietude is queenly
You need not a crown to be a queen
You need not a throne to rule your acts
Stay unruffled, hold your poise
Control yourself, be the queen
Embrace quietude
Make friends with serenity
Rise to the challenge
Rest on your throne
Be the bigger and better person
Peaceful hearts hardly quarrel because…

Quietude is queenly

BELIEVE in YOURSELF

62E4EC9A-DE6A-458D-BA69-3FCE58497391

Believe in YOURSELF
When no one believes in you
Celebrate YOURSELF
When no one celebrates you
Learn to appreciate YOURSELF
When no one appreciates you
Be honest to YOURSELF
When no one is honest with you
Be true to YOURSELF
When no one is true to you
No one owes you anything
But, you owe everything to YOURSELF

Do not fret,
Do not sweat
Do not cry,
You just have to try,
To BELIEVE in YOURSELF

N – Neighbourliness is Noble #AtoZ 2018

C31A35E4-4963-4586-BC3B-8E7DA7751F18

Neighbourliness is noble
Who is my neighbour?
Anybody, but me
Good friendship, little chats,
A little kindness, and empathy,
Great support when needed
No one has got a halo but
Anyone can say, “Hello”
In this little room called earth
Ain’t we all neighbours?

Neighbourliness is noble

M – Moderation Is A Must #AtoZ 2018

C31A35E4-4963-4586-BC3B-8E7DA7751F18

Moderation is a must
Strike a balance, yet be the best
Neither underperform nor overachieve
Give some space, respect the boundaries
Neither neglect nor abandon
Be mindful, maintain your poise
Moderation makes life meaningful
Even excess love becomes
A tiresome smothering,
And excess attention becomes
A harrying obsession,
Life is all about balance because…

Moderation is a must

Disrupt Me, I Plead

IMG_2093

Disrupt my will
Teach me Yours Lord,
Disrupt my emotions
Teach me self-control,
Disrupt my stubbornness
Teach me to follow You,
Disrupt my desires
My heart pursues after Yours,
Disrupt my temperament
Let me be Spirit controlled
Disrupt my well-laid plans
Let Your Hands guide my path,
Disrupt me, Lord, I plead
Mould me to be like You

“I may not like it, it may seem unpleasant and discomforting; but I’m fully persuaded You mean well. For Your thoughts and plans for me are thoughts of peace, hope and a brighter future.”

L – Loyalty is Laudable #AtoZ 2018

C31A35E4-4963-4586-BC3B-8E7DA7751F18

Loyalty is laudable

Put a price on friendship
Loyalty points for sale
Go to, sell all you have
Make an ample payment
Own unswerving devotion
Reassuring to know
Someone’s got your back…

Loyalty is laudable

K – Knowledge is Kinetic #AtoZ 2018

C31A35E4-4963-4586-BC3B-8E7DA7751F18

Knowledge is kinetic
Endless streams of data
Dynamic, constantly evolving
Core of human existence
Break the chains of ignorance
Liberation is power!
Information is life!
Don’t be left behind because
Flowing waters never grow stale
But, stagnant waters stink with time
And so does the human mind…

Knowledge is kinetic

H – Happiness is Helpful #AtoZ 2018

C31A35E4-4963-4586-BC3B-8E7DA7751F18

Happiness is helpful
Like a mouthful dose
Of sweet medicine
On a sad rainy day;
Take a spoonful,
Gulp down an overdose,
Don’t forget to share
Those happy smiles…

Happiness is helpful

F – Fun on Fridays #AtoZ 2018

C31A35E4-4963-4586-BC3B-8E7DA7751F18

Hurray! It’s Friday!
It’s time for fun
Relaxation for free

Stretch those ankles
Watch a movie
Catch up on a book
Run a mile or so
Or simply just be
It need not cost much

Whatever makes you smile
Whatever way to relax
Make the best of the weekend
Have some fun on Friday!

Wrinkles and Mascaras

B0610367-1523-4810-AA2C-A1C552A1907B

Wrinkles and gray hairs
Inevitably we grow up
Inevitably time passes by

Wrinkles and gray hairs
The future is ours to shape
Que sera sera

Inevitably we shall lie
On the beds we made
When we wore
Stilettos and mascaras

Love Poured Forth

CD7C4A4C-2869-414A-8320-71CC72A80812

Light a spark in her heart
Watch her love lit up
Hold her heart like an egg
Watch her guard yours
With her life

Her love is like a butterfly
That makes special bonds,
With the petals that receive her
Tenderly and warmly;
She’s not desperate for love;

But,

She is willing to share hers,
She has so much to give
So much more than you know

So,
Only he who gives his heart
Only he who pours out his best
Can enjoy the best of her

Until Summer’s Glow

let me go
hide not my valise
winter’s chill
a timely signal.

travel through time
find our keepsakes,
wear my smiles
as love’s true necklace,

warm fragrance,
your cheeks
like sweet lavender
they shall steer me home,
when summer’s glow
breaks forth from above.

That Which Will Be

That which was,
That which is,
That which will be,
All things –
The good, the bad,
The beautiful, the complicated,
All, began in the mind;

Thoughts are like seeds
Coursing through the mind,
Resulting and growing into
Grand trees,
Grand deeds,
Grand designs,
Grand words or
Grand theft, unfortunately;

Don’t underestimate
The power of your IMAGINATION

imagination

“Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers, but whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on God’s law day and night. That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither – whatever they do prospers.” (Psalms 1:1-3)

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.

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.
