THE HOURGLASS

Posted on Updated on

 

THE HOURGLASS

Other day I purchased one hourglass a scarce commodity now

Looks simple antique vintage designed calls on for attraction

Made of brass superannuated letters engraved also says London 1885

Glass blocks sand known for transparency

It has been my latest play; sand falls down inverted starts again

Sand particles minute, every drop depicts gravity, heaps of sand change shape

Fascination for device watcher’s time stands still in enchantment

Flow smooth though, time runs out particles reveal fraction of seconds

With it during play stunned to know life moves so fast

Ordinarily in life‘s tenure its obscure, OMG! Time flies such speed

Amazing! Sand being pulled down concludes one time measure! Humans being pulled by sensual pleasures complete one cycle of life

Many such products or things inspire us to correct life in realization of blissful state

Ancient timing tool likewise has many things to tell and teach – THE HOURGLASS

ONCE UPON A TIME

Posted on Updated on

ONCE UPON A TIME

Once Upon A Time —- Just Born

Pound of flesh full life

Fresh as morning full promises

Wrinkled skin closed eyes

Sound of cry to live life ahead

Once Upon A Time — 6 Months

Bright eyes penetrates heart

Smell of flesh fragrant deep breaths

Carried by all kisses received everywhere

Mother’s warmth fed for life

Once Upon A Time — One Year

Standing on legs balancing life

Innocence spills showered by love

Being lovely dressed wetting clothes

First year birth celebration passes by

Once Upon A Time —3 Years

Holding hands walking straight

Taught by signs learning language

Done wrong or right hugged and kissed

World wonders seen wonders world see

Once Upon A Time — 5 Years

Ready to school thoughts of play

First friends meet no blood relationships start

Teacher’s word ultimate life homeworks begin

Joy at peak world influence untouched

Once Upon A Time — 9 Years

Mischievous traits talent artistic aptitude show up

Right and wrong societal venom infuse

Getting smarter to be among smart world

Enthusiasm brings joy playful learning process

Once Upon A Time — 14 Years

Body metabolism changes felt

Sense of attraction towards other sex

Focus on deeds getting sharper

Ambitions start building up

Once Upon A Time — 18 Years

Emotions sentiments start making marks

Relationships formed remain in mind evermore

Grandiosity of appearance opulence of good health evince

All the more urge to love and to be loved

Once Upon A Time — 21 Years

Fixing goals actions to accomplish

Economic gains foremost priority

New circle of friends gala time

Good and bad habits form seeking pleasure

Once Upon A Time — 30 Years

Choosing life partner offsprings result

Life immersed in toto into worldly affairs

Best of times being spent

Success achieved aspiration to attain more successes

Once Upon A Time — 45 Years

Stress strain erupt from working and home ends

Life responsibilities at its peak

Materialistic accumulations all for happy moments 

Sincere efforts hard work law of nature presents fruits

 

Once Upon A Time — 60 Years

Looking back life passed like a jiffy

Not all fortunately some tend towards spirituality

Memories bring solace agony of past times

Time in abundance for relaxation

 

Once Upon A Time — 75 Years

Most friends relatives vanish from scene

Wrinkled skin looks change unimaginable

Disease and disorders uninvited guests

Enhanced zeal to live cheerfully in smiles

 

Once Upon A Time — 90 Years

Back into cradle again but a little big

Feeble body fragile mind is the plight

Dependence to lead and conduct life

Consciousness still inspiring and illustrious

 

Once Upon A Time — After Death

Remembrances commemorations celebrate some for few days

Kith and kin crave in hearts times well spent

At places loved ones hang photos on wall seen in albums too

Once upon a time it all happens in human life

Storm of Troubles

Posted on Updated on

Storm of Troubles

Like storm they come creating blackout

Shaking my thoughts inserting awful feelings

Pulling my basement make me shudder to breathe for life

I stand by my robust stem and roots

They shy in shame go out of sight for a while

In habit of creating hell on earth

Hiding and seeking craving to step-in

Only to come to see my daring tough looks

I possess no rooms for unwanted guests

Solution lasts for them is only to escape

Everyone in life faces troubles and problems be it financial, emotional, relationship break ups or health. Some face it much early in life or later. All of us have been dealing with them when they come one after the other, in a way we get trained.
There comes a time when all troubles come at a time like a storm and there lies the test of time. We have to face and handle them with patience and intelligence. We have to see them right in their face show them how strong we are and can be. Seeing back how we have come through in life having to solve and overcome such situations was our capacity and bravery. So we now have to show more of it when it has come like a storm. The more scope you give the more they enter inside. Keeping them at bay is a meticulous task.

Your arms like octopusy tentacles

Posted on Updated on

Your arms like octopusy tentacles

Your arms like octopusy tentacles

griped me into your fold.

Unaware of facts of love

stunned to see myself in goosebumps.

Intimacy to the core of fondness

magic of fascination turns into inflorescence.

Eyes locked to unlock chapters

of the love saga in the making.

Deep in the blanket of love

silent inner spirits feel the warmth.

Sudden shift in nature’s attitude turns conducive

music of nature brings pleasure adds essence to the rendezvous.

Two bodies welded to become one

from time zone have gone into timeless.

All senses extract joy and pleasure

bodies yearned and are enthralled.

Devoid of desire to be in earthly realms

eternity be in your arms like octopusy tentacles.

Moments Worth

Posted on Updated on

 

On the eve of Valentine 14th Feb I post this to dedicate “All Lovers” of this world of Past, Present and Future 

Moments Worth

“Moments are for a few moments and are time bound; they have their beginnings to endings, they are to be worth. We are anxious of their coming and cherish their going . How long, far, near and great are they worth. They bring joy”.

These words are in ‘Quotable Quotes’ form.

The same words in a ‘Poetic’ form

Moments are for moments
Time bound are they
Worthiness matters
Own their beginnings till endings
Anxious of their coming
Cherish of their going
How long
How far
How near
How great
Moments are worth
Bring Joy

Hello! You Both!! Mind! & Body!

Posted on Updated on

 

Hello! You Both!! Mind! & Body!

 

My salutations to your friendship
you both, have been such good friends
anybody, for that matter would appreciate and applause.

 

Having been my guests all through
been so close to each other
you act, like as if you are the big hosts.

 

You work by the seconds
make know of your after effects to one another
bring happiness and sorrow to each other.

 

You are more concerned, of your own self
having to reside in me, 
shown all causations of pleasure and pain.

 

All through you have been doing and acting your ways
having not cared, what shall be
repercussions on me.

 

Over a period, you caused stress, strain 
invite certain diseases and mental problems
aren’t you not fed up?

 

Now, I have come to know, that
I have been taken for a ride by you both
this will not do, henceforth.

 

 I now want, you to listen to me
you have not heard of Meditation and Mindfulness
I now teach you, some lessons on that.

 

I pray, you obey me
as I am giving you both the conducive atmosphere
you needn’t worry, I go by your ways to mend.

 

Oh! Body, you are constructed of the five great elements
you mind, you are made of space and wind
therefore, are such your acts.

 

In the present moment
this is what you are to do 
keep away past, think not of future, strictly.

 

Enough of wandering
in the mundane world
find solitude, that shall bring joy.

 

Realise! Who you are
you are not what you were a second back
you inhere within me.

 

Therefore, practice the methods of meditation
mindfulness is what shall bring you into the path
freedom is what shall be achieved.

 

I am the source of your existence
derivation of joy is from me
I am the bliss.

 

After death I get rid of you,
shall leave the planet
who knows, if I shall get you both back.

 

Now is the time to know,
cleanse, yourselves to capture back
the kingdom of silence, in which is all and complete.

 

Mind karma, gather blessings, seek the Master
change is what is needed, balance and transform
Hello! You Both!! Mind! & Body!

State of Meditation

Posted on Updated on

State of Meditation

Meditation in situ

Eyelids drop curtain
Close screen to mundane world
Ears bidding goodbye to outer sounds
Sounds of silence bloom
Bodily attached thoughts renounce
Habitation of bones, blood and nerves cast away
Skin starts sensualising astronomical cool
Terrestrial body consign to oblivion
Realms of inner being manifest
Ubiquity of bliss felt  
Self experiences expansion
Encounters universal presence

Meditation Aftermath  

Gradually eyes open
World offers to view
Poetry of creation
Sparkle in eyes result
Mark two red wine glasses
Awareness of joy fails to resign
Reminiscences of worldly ties attract
Mind dwindles in dilemma
Forces into the routine
Habitual actions hence take stroll
Nevertheless mind hankers to
Meditate again and again 

Meditation Repeats

Retrospective effects compose
Afterthoughts full of joy
Elated mind permits to act  
Darkless light offers bliss
Heart centre blossoms
Personality elevates to spiritual vibrations
Knower of knowledge becomes known 
Exaltation to formless state
Showers of benedictions occur
Being silent witness to inner and outer worlds
Thus – the Growth, to receive reverence
One of the One merges into – ‘the One’

I am pleased to share the ‘State of Meditation’ in my own words; I hope you receive it in its right perspective. There are various ways to meditate of which I would not want to elaborate. But I have presented in three classifications, the first one to know how it is and how it influences on the one who meditates, the second is the feeling as to how it influences even after finishing meditation, the third is what actually happens when we meditate regularly and what the results of Meditation actually should be.
I wish and feel, fresh Meditators or those who have begun or who are adepts would take the Best use of the lines as they are the study and years of practice. Ultimately it is that goal to be achieved. Thanks
I have posted this on the eve of New Year 2018 –the 1st Janu 2018.  
I WISH ALL MY READERS A VERY HAPPY AND PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR
