Tempest Tossed

B4E2A3FE-2DC4-41E4-893E-084D6C13019F

Tempest tossed
I am overwhelmed,
Hassles brewing around me
Wondering, worrying what will be,
Broken, bruised, I fall to my knee
Seeking from this pain to be free,
Then I hear a still small voice
Saying, “My child rejoice”,
I am always on your side
All you need, I will provide,
You are safe in My palms
In the hollow of My hands.

See How Far We’ve Come

AE01BB6C-D316-47B0-9203-76ECACC82DA3

See how far we’ve come,
You were my first crush,
I was your first love.

Silver, gold or
Treasures, I want not,
Though days be cold
Or nights very hot
With you by my side
Now and always, my friend,
I will tackle on life
I will be brave to the end.

See how years have gone past,
I am your love heart,
You are my sweetheart.

Neon Fountains

5C9AE3AC-991F-4212-B1D5-6F22BE288890A93B9F4F-05A7-4D25-9ED7-530F3FB47C164D0FF079-B18A-490D-83DD-25056C9A58ABF212BFF1-6A57-45E8-8F7B-17A7EA0EBDE9

These are little water fountains glowing with neon lights from underneath giving them beautiful variations of colours. I took the pictures at Piccadilly Gardens in Manchester during this last Christmas. Altogether, I took 233 pictures using panorama features on my iPhone. 😀😀 I was struck by their beauty. These are a few of them.

You can watch it here. I found this link on YouTube.

Seas and Sails

Seas and sails
Skies and stars
Horizons afar
Our hearts adore
Break the routine
Explore the new
Fire in my soul
Fire for change
Take a flight
Untie the sails

Success favours the brave
Success favours those who dared to risk

Put A Bow On The Rain

8C541F39-4D13-4755-B654-A3927B9A1378

Put a bow on the rain,
Bid the floods farewell,
Say to the sun, “Spring up!”

Add silver linings to clouds;

A spoonful of hope,
A spice of sanguine,
A sprinkle of love,

Stir, stir; believe, believe;

A blink, another blink,
A thousand sleeps,
And when dreams come true,

Dance like no one is watching.

Living Behind Brick Walls

D8E24998-841A-401D-82AB-CBFE47D4D0D4

Masked thoughts,
Many a life hidden;
Masked words,
Agendas concealed,

We smile but are pining
We nod but are hurting

Barricaded within shut doors,
Prisoners of our own perceptions,
Reeking of subtle disguise,
Words and hearts uncorrelated;

We are professional masked men,
Living behind brick walls,

Let’s live a mile more,
Let’s be free.

Evoke – A Love Tale

The more he thought about her,
The more he realised
She was more than a friend to him,
She was his saviour,
She was his angel from God;
The thought of her evoked nothing more
Than sweet wonderful memories
Of a future they will spend together

But first, he has to pop the question…

The Brave Incy Wincy

6DFFF8D0-13B5-479B-9B52-E23A096D7D26

“Incy Wincy spider climbs up the spout
Down came the rain and washed the spider out
Out came the sunshine and dried up all the rain
And Incy Wincy spider climbed up the spout again”
(Nursery Rhymes)

Up Incy went
Down the rain came
Down Incy went
Up the sun came
Up Incy went….

And on and on and on it went
Till all the rains had gone away
Then out the sun came and stayed
And Incy went up and up and up
And stayed up

Brave Incy Wincy never quit
Brave Incy Wincy never gave up
Be like the brave Incy Wincy
Be not a quitter

“The duration of the incessant rains never stops the sun from shining thereafter”

Kiss Away My Tears

Kiss away my tears,
Waltz off my fears,
Bid farewell to your
Sentimental allergies,

Search my soul,
And find,
The open book,
My emotions;

Hunt for them,
You will know
Who I am,
What I love;
You will find me,
There.

The Question

Writers Envy

What I fear most when I appear at the gates of Heaven is a question:
“My son, why did you kill the sparrow?”

I raised my BB gun and aimed;
At the end of the cold steel barrel
sat the sparrow singing its song
of joy, and happiness, and innocence;
I pulled the trigger and let fly the BB;
The golden pellet raced through the space
of a moment and entered the sparrow’s
soft, downy white breast and raised
a puff of tiny, fluffy feathers;
Then time slowed to a motion so fluid
I could see the tiny red spot appear
and spread on that harmless, flawless
Soul.
Then my world grew quiet when the singing
stopped as Life flew from the tiny breast,
And I grew somber as I watched the
little bird fall dead from its perch and lay
lifeless on the cold, hard dirty surface of
the…

Happy New Year!! Happy 2️⃣0️⃣1️⃣8️⃣

5441D503-EF34-471F-94A8-F5B6F79F9D31

From the last seconds of an old time
To the first minutes of a new time;
From the dim shadows of one sunset
To the bright rays of another sunrise;
From the dusk of the evening
To the dawn of the morning,
From the fall of an old era
To the rise of a new era,
A New Year emerges!

New hopes, dreams, visions, resolutions,
New opportunities, second chances,
New loves, couples, friends, families,
An exciting thrilling newness to life!

Happy New Year to everyone!
Happy 2️⃣0️⃣1️⃣8️⃣

Making Memories, Making Mistakes

90899EE4-970A-416F-86F5-AF51AE615DA6Sing your last songs
Dance into the night
Write your sweet poems
Let words take flight

Another year ran away,
Hear, her sister comes,
Riding fast on the wings of Hope
Many people await her coming

We cried, we danced, we loved,
We lived, we played, we fought
We believed, we prayed, we dreamt
We worked, we searched, we slept

Finally we shall sleep again tonight
To honour the last sleep of the year
To wake up to many rosy days,
Many thorny days; to wake up, alive

Finally we bid farewell to yesterday
But not to its bittersweet memories
Gallantly, we ride into the morrow,
Into the New Year, our New Hope

To do that which we always do,
Growing old and growing wiser;
Making memories, making mistakes,
Learning from them.
