Beautiful Exit


Oh Maple leaf I see you fall
You’ve led a life so very short
But I’m happy you fall before the cold 
Makes you frozen and distraught.
 
Oh Maple leaf I salute the way
Your departure can lift our heart
Now green, now red, now floating down 
What a poetic and graceful way to part!

Inner Spring of Love

I am bursting with life,
I am bubbling with life
For inside me is a spring that never dies

I am overflowing with ideas
I am jumping with enthusiasm
For inside me is a little girl who never grows up 

I am swamped with emotions
I am drowned in feelings
For inside me is a romantic who is steeped in love

And when my immediate world looks gray and dull
And when the surroundings seem lonely and drab
I dip inside and touch that spring
I peep inside and summon that girl
And then I experience being in love
Once again!

Oh I experience being in love again,
In love again, just pure passionate love
No persons, this time, no faces or names
But just the distilled essence of romantic love!

I become both Romeo and Juliet
I become both Laila and Majnu,
I become the love in all the movies I've seen
I become the love in all the books I have read
And I just bask in that accumulated feeling of love!

Not labeling, not describing, not analyzing-
Just witnessing, and enjoying!

Memoirs of a big-fat family wedding


The good and bad was rolled into one
The beautiful and ugly was rolled into one
The rough and the luxurious was rolled into one
The human and the divine was rolled into one
The easy and difficult was rolled into one
The boring and adventurous was rolled into one
But the moment I stopped labeling each thing
Life suddenly burst forth into loads of fun!
