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
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
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
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.
On the eve of Valentine 14th Feb I post this to dedicate “All Lovers” of this world of Past, Present and Future
“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
Own their beginnings till endings
Anxious of their coming
Cherish of their going
Moments are worth
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
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
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
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
