“When Known Hearts Meet”
“When known hearts meet after a long, long time, the joy derived is so much; even the ocean falls short”
The other day with my family I had a chance to meet or rather made it a point to meet, which was pending since long. We had number of times missed the opportunity to meet these loved ones, who were an extended family.
Over a period of time, I should say almost four decades of friendship and sharing of family values. We till today cherish the days we shared along with the elders in the family. Both being business families did have their ups and downs, so the family moved to a nearby town and have been living there.
My father was a favourite of them and always brought joy to everyone. They had loved his company and he being a foodie was served delicious food by them. They even invited us all for dinners, breakfast or lunch. They in return were invited by us and that was real joy. We all used to go on short trips and picnics.
After they moved from our town it so happened that they lost the elders and we our father. Now, except our mother and their mother all elders have gone.
When we went to their home we were overwhelmingly received and served with Bhel Puri and kachoris ( Indian Snacks) we spent about 4 hours with them, while leaving we did all the pranams, namasthe while hugging my wife our old aunty expressed “Hum itna khush hain ke samundar bhi kam padta hai” ( “it is so joyful that even the ocean falls short”) I was moved by the words and today I present it as Quote for you all.
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
“Life Scenes seen are temporary waves of Life from Birth till Death are just like on a screen.”
The same subject I have written a Haiku and have published yesterday the title I have given to it is “JUST A SCREEN”.
You may read the Haiku in which I have mentioned about it in prose. There are some attractive images too.
JUST A SCREEN
Life Scenes Seen On Screen
Temporary Waves Of Life
Birth Death Just A Screen
In this Haiku I would like to throw light upon the life scenes one sees from birth till death. They are temporary and they are displayed before us like just on a screen.
Let us now contemplate on Life as the subject is sensitive in nature and to be pondered. Just let us think of the people who have lived and gone on this planet since ancient times. In all their lives they have seen all types of scenes may be they might have enjoyed them or suffered seeing to them. At the time of the view everything seems to look so true and real to everyone.
Howmuchsoever we love the food we eat, while eating we are so much engrossed in it, but we do not remember what we ate during the last week. The same case with anything we love or hate. We are involved so much, that this life itself is as if a permanent affair. As life passes by we tend to forget the scenes in which we had totally put ourselves into it. So what about those scenes which had come across and gone which we thought were so precious or were worth to discard.
Let us take the example of a movie that we see on the screen of a movie theatre. The scenes come and go, the movie ends; we enjoy, get involved in the movie and come out.
So also, Life from Birth till Death shows us continuously scene after scene as if everything was real.
The great scriptures too proclaim that life is like the screen; it provides those scenes for us to see in between Birth and Death. I would not want to mention about these lines found in the scriptures or in which books they are. It is again a very elaborate subject.
If you would want to know you can refer any of the Great Spiritual Doctrines of the East or West (Granthas – it means books of the spiritual doctrines in the language of Sanskrit)
You may not necessarily look to the doctrines but just have a thought put it to test. In one corner of your heart or mind you shall feel it is so.
Coming to the subject; Life scenes seen like on a screen are temporary waves of life from birth till death are just like on a screen.
Mouth, Eye, Ear, Hand Properly
Or Relations Spoil
This is a Haiku Poem, a Japanese form of writing Poetry
I would like to give more information to new readers who would want to know about Haiku writing, in my previous Haiku I had given the basic information.
Communication in this world today or since ancient times is a very important tool for people to live; live in harmony.
These days in our regular course of life we tend to ill communicate or sometimes not communicate at all.
Today there are various means to communicate but still we do the mistake of not communicating properly.
With me the experience goes on a daily basis with my own employees, my own beloved, my daughter so on and so forth.
This leads to the unnecessary straining of relationship and tension, which would lead to unwanted disorders and diseases.
Therefore the above words came in my mind, which knowingly become a Haiku and unknowingly a Quote.
So, therefore I put this post under my ‘Poetry’ and also on ‘My Quotes’ Menus.
Below is the link you can refer to for writing of Haiku
Characteristics of haiku
The following are typical of haiku:
A focus on nature.
A “season word” such as “snow” which tells the reader what time of year it is.
A division somewhere in the poem, which focuses first on one thing, than on another. The relationship between these two parts is sometimes surprising.
Instead of saying how a scene makes him or her feel, the poet shows the details that caused that emotion. If the sight of an empty winter sky made the poet feel lonely, describing that sky can give the same feeling to the reader.
I also insert here some Images of even animals as to how they communicate and be communicated.
