Joie de vivre

“Walk as if you are kissing the Earth with your feet.”
― Thich Nhat HanhPeace Is Every Step: The Path of Mindfulness in Everyday Life

joie de vivre

I’ll take you out into
the sunshine,
where wild flowers dance.
I’ll enfold you in
soft canticles,
to love at first glance.

The birds will be
our symphony,
under cerulean skies,
we’ll consume
the sweetest nectar
with transparent butterflies.

We’ll bask in fields of splendour,
beneath rustling trees,
and soak in
dreamlike atmospheres,
just doing as we please.

When the sun bids farewell,
amidst these
ambient pleasures,
the stars will light our universe
with such radiance
to treasure.

And when the time comes
for repose,
we’ll doze on clouds
of blessings,
and sup at banquets of delight,
drenched in the
fragrance of heaven!

Captivated

“Time spent with a cat is never wasted.”
― Colette

exploration

I watch you
explore the garden,
this moment is all you know,
birds are aware of you
they noisily observe your show!

Your curiosity
captivates me,
I don’t let you out of sight.
Each flower
and each blade of grass,
hold the possibility
to delight!

You’re new
to nature’s bounty,
and the mystery of things.
I’m entranced by your
exuberance,
and the joy that you bring!

Dance

“We should consider every day lost on which we have not danced at least once.”
― Friedrich Nietzsche

dance to the resonance

she danced to the resonance
of whispering trees,
cradled by the taste
of invigorating breeze

the swirl and rhythm
of what hope should mean,
intoxicated silence
in zero gravity

euphoric tempo summoned her
breath,
and in stillness of mind
she lived her strength

Nature’s sweet gifts

“In one drop of water are found all the secrets of all the oceans; in one aspect of You are found all the aspects of existence.”
― Kahlil Gibran

washed in glory

Immersed in magnificence,
I’m transcended to light,
in reservoirs of renewal
restoring my sight!

Transforming moments
eternally exist,
in cosmic reflections
of Nature’s sweet gifts!

Counted among the stars!

“Stop acting so small. You are the universe in ecstatic motion.”
― Jalaluddin Mevlana Rumi

transcendent

Who are we among the throng of
main stream life,
but fragmented images
on instagram,
obscure voices on twitter,
trying to be heard above the din
of mediocrity!
To never stop hoping,
even in the
maelstrom of media frenzy,
that justice and peace
will cry aloud!

But are we merely snapshots of ourselves,
set in timeless motion,
with smiles that mask our insignificance?

We yearn to be known,
to be loved,
and deep beneath our imperfections
we feel the breath that gives us life.
Our souls quake
at these fabrications!

In the silent womb of longing,
we realize
that we are counted among the stars!

Though,
in self-obsessed boulevards
of malcontent,
we cannot always see beyond the indulgence
of worldly wants!
Glittery tinsel that won’t
absorb the pain
for long!

Yet He who has counted
every hair on our heads,
and perceives our thoughts
from afar,
also knows our rising
and our falling.

And underneath this tiresome ache
of insignificance,
we find ourselves one with all that is,
bright lights
in a mystical Universe.

We must rise above the tempest
of hatred and violence
that threatens our planet,
and beckon each soul
to join us,
and be saturated
in grace and love.
We are transcendent Earthlings
attempting to transfigure
the trajectory of
destruction!
