The tinkle of my anklets had become silent with time And now a whiff from the past Stir sleeping memories No anklets on my feet And yet the chime resonates There is no dais And yet my feet they dance to a soundless melody...

in body, mind and soul... (pic courtesy : http://ejournal.eumind.net/.component/imageGenerator.php?fileName=%2Fha%2Fhtml%2Fejournals%2Feumind%2Fproject%2Fwww%2Fhumanrights1%2Fmedia%2F%2FCathedral+JCS%2FCathedral+group+4%2Fimages-1.jpeg&cache=1&cachePrefix=.cache)
teetering on the brink
hovering over another world,
never visited,never ventured but in dreams... (pic courtesy: http://www.gettyimages.in/detail/photo/woman-at-sunset-standing-on-beach-of-ruegen-high-res-stock-photography/112158283)
Its been awhile the vales had been silent the waves had ebbed the soul lulled to slumber and then from the beyond again a beckon... shhh...A plea; do not awaken sleeping thoughts the time is past do not reckon...
that which was, ceases that which is, remains that which cannot, doesn't;
let bygones be bygones... (pic courtesy: http://theviewspaper.net/wp-content/uploads/She-Sits-Alone.jpg)
a thought is born unbidden
it shall not find words to adorn
deep inside the soul it remains
hidden, unspoken no words shall escape my lips, my thoughts shall remain caged - hear my silences ,understand, respond... the loveliest thoughts are left unspoken...
when the skies darken
the wind caresses my hair
the crimson of the horizon
spreads across my cheeks
I close my eyes and find you beside why is it that on such days as this
I feel you are not afar
but somewhere near...
a world deep inside, a world separate, a world far removed... and then some fetters drag you in,suck you in, you tug, you pull to stay afloat... the ripples recede,the waters are placid once again, you sink into the illusory stupor until yet another stone is thrown into the river of life..
the sound of my name on your lips
the call for me in your voice...
to listen, to respond, once again... to have spoken, to have listened, retracing some steps from the past... the heart is gladdened; and the present is enlivened
surly faces rapt in centered zones
the conductor though was in a witty mood
chirping merrily random comments
slowly, warily glances exchanged,smiles flickered
the world inside the bus had become a warmer place...
When I think about my most beautiful thing, I can only think about moments in my life that have spurred exquisite joy, untold gratitude within me. Such beautiful moments have been splattered on the fabric of my life at random moments , enriching its hue and texture. Moments that I've been aware of as being most Special Blessings even as they unfolded into the weft and warp of my present. Moments that I enjoyed while experiencing them and watching them with full awareness. Moments that I highlighted and then set them aside in the recesses of my soul, knowing that I would want to revisit them , savouring the richness and the flavour over and over again in the future.
Some such moments fell into my lap during my recent stay with my brother and family. It was a most beautiful time that I had with them and I kept on gathering the sparkling gems of memory each day. The love and the care that was doled out to me by the dollops, I lapped up greedily. Small, simple daily gestures of affection, care and consideration borne of love had my heart brimming with joy and gratitude. It was sheer delight to spend quality time with my brother, sister- in-law and my two darling nephews. I do not know what Tomorrow may bring, but I do know that the sacred memory of the last two months with my brother's family, I'll cherish until my last breath.
