The Autumn Leaf !

The winds came along,

and blew me away.

I let myself loose,

and was taken away.

It wasn’t a long journey,

from heavens above.

But one that I have waited,

worth all the love.

I swirled and danced,

for I lived for this moment.

There is magic in the air,

The woods are all fragrant.

The colours are bold,

The winds breezy and cold.

Its time I finally fall,

For I have lived it all.

I am the autumn leaf,

Basking in all glory.

I lived all the seasons,

And that is my little story.

Life shall move on and I will be reborn,

And once again the autumn will sweep me along !!







Waiting !

(An autumn tree waiting to wither)


A mother waits for her child,

In city or in wild.

Like the peacock waits for the rain,

Thundering or mild.

The summer waits for the Autumn

The autumn for the rain,

The little furry friend wishes for an angel,

In hunger or in pain.

(Waiting for some nurturing and love)


A farmer waits for the sunny days,

So his harvest stays.

A soldier waits for his holiday,

For his family that awaits.

Life comes full circle,

we all wait for a good life.

Hoping and keeping the faith is all that we do,

that truly keeps us alive !!

Weekly Photo Challenge – Waiting –


Nurturing Angel !

Standing tall in the mountains,

My existence always unsung.

My silence is conjectured,

My strength truly muffled.

For decades I have withered and stood still and old,

Gave those priceless little gestures worth its weight a gold.

I am pretty, I am strong

But of all the life in the Universe, I have survived long !

The Transient Life !

My little piece of Transient


The seasons come, the seasons go,

With the tick and the tock, the times flow.

For I walk along the path of change,

The love, the fear and the times of  strange.

The waters drift, the mountains grow,

Autumn brings along the love of snow.

The seasons come, the seasons go,

With the tick and the tock, the times flow !

The perfect ‘Imperfection’ – Life in little hopes !

All my childhood, my mother, like any other mother, was always beaming with endless life lessons and never ending preaches on how to live life and how not to. And like any other normal child, I was never interested !

All through these years, when I am a grown up married some one in her thirties, I know now how much I cherish those moments of frowning in my childhood when I was being preached over something at the dining table and when I wanted to eat the food right in front of me, but I couldn’t because my mum was telling me – how careless I can get with my life !

Life isn’t about the choices we make, but more about the ones that we don’t. Those years of childhood, I always dreaded to be an adult and always imagined about how I am going to preach others in my life once I am there. And now, as double an adult, I want someone to tell me that there is a way to go back to your childhood days and that you can always be in that life for the rest of your life.

No, I am not talking about my childhood here, neither am I talking about the life lessons that my Mom has never been out of, even today!@

All I wish to put across is, life isn’t about asking what you want always. It definitely isn’t !! It is always about, what you didn’t ask for !! Trust me on that !

The time when we stop asking GOD for things to happen our way, life really amazes you beautifully. The more we ask for things to happen His way, the more we realize what we have been missing for so long.

My prayers revolve more around the gratitude that I wish to express to Almighty for all the things that happened in my life the way they did, but most importantly, for all those things that did not happen the way they did not or the way I asked them to happen. I would have lived (maybe) even then, but perhaps I may not have had the wisdom of knowing this nectar of life and to acknowledge the way it works.

And no, my life is not perfect ! I am a confused soul, trying to find answers to many unattended questions, trying to seek balance in her married life, making enormous efforts to get in the best of health – and still trying to follow the endless life lessons that her Mom is giving her till now 🙂

Every time I broke, got rejected in life, looked down upon my capabilities and every little time I was hated for the reasons best known to God, I emerged with more gratitude, strong enough to tell me that it isn’t the end of world and it doesn’t stops here. I am not someone famous and neither am I preaching to lead a perfect life – just another soul trying to put in words how grateful she is for this life and hoping to be never without hope in life ! 🙂

Well, all I wish to put across to you my dear diary (and to all the beautiful souls reading it perhaps) is – putting your hands together in a prayer position and just saying – “Thank you God for just everything !” is all you need to do, for you do not know what it would have been if it was the way you asked for, otherwise !

“Thank you God for all you do always !!”

Keep shining and spreading gratitude!


Ms Sunshine !!

The little miss Sunshine crowned her hat,
Donned the stilettos and walked the mat.

She tipped and toed and flickered her tinkle,
Glazed in the mirror, oh my, not a wrinkle.

She walked like a cat and reached out to him,
My light shines bright, please, don’t make it dim.

I am twirling and swirling and making my own merry,
I am the fondant and I am the cherry.

I am the sunshine and I shine my light on you,
I ain’t need no sunshine to make my way through.

You may have done your wonders – you ain’t my cup of tea,
For I walk away from you, Oh World, and I set me free !!

While I Thank…!!

Its Thanksgiving finally !

While I believe no single day can do justice when it comes to thanking the people we love around us, the blessings we receive from the Almighty every single day and the most beautiful memories we are able to make every single day while we live – it certainly is a day to just pause and reflect and say “Thank You” !

There is a lot that we need to be thankful for !

Thank you God, for allowing me in this beautiful world of yours and allowing me to see, feel and appreciate your all your creations !

Thank you for a beautiful family (my parents and my in-laws) that has been by my side in the moments of infinite love and support and in moments when I would have shattered without their presence. No words can ever describe the amount of love and gratefulness I wish to show my family for having me as a part of their lives and allowing me to make them a part of mine. From moments of sweetness, to a few when I annoyed them and a lot many that included my being childish, dumb and not being pleasant – they have seen it all and under all circumstances, just have held me in the most loving and caring hold of theirs, never to let me go !

Thank you for a an amazing husband, who in his own little ways, has loved me to boundaries unknown and even in times when I baffled him with my little tantrums, his love and patience just reminded me how lucky I have been. His support is the biggest I have and his love is the kindest I have known !

Thank you for granting my family the strength to make me who I am today and help me attain the best of knowledge to understand life better !

Thank you for granting me the wisdom to acknowledge your presence even in the most little things and knowing that every single decision of my life is connected to your approval of it and its disapproval too at times even, leads to the most amazing decisions we may ever be able to take in our own consciousness !

Thank you for that every little failure, when I cried my lungs out to you for having me put in that situation, just to realise how much you were bonding stronger with me and telling me you have my back always !

Thank you for all those times when it almost blacked out and life seemed unfair as we rode along with it, you always wanted us to pray a little to you and taught us to thank you even for such moments, just to realise the best always stood right away !

Thank you for those bad comments, humiliations and little unpleasant conversations with a bunch of people who came in my life on and off. While those definitely weren’t the best times of my life but even better, for they have taught me to appreciate your presence and feel your love even amidst the terrible times !

Thank you for taking away some people that you have, and keeping them safe in your hands – they needed your love perhaps a little more than I did, but to be sure, I know it wasn’t easy to have let them go. Thank you for taking care of them even now !

Thank you for keeping me strong, in those moments when I felt I have been secluded, and for showing me little gestures of your presence and assuring me that you still have my back..!!

Thank you for a body that is healthy and a heart that loves you so dearly !

Thank you for all that has gone, the way it has ; for all that is, the way it is and for all that shall be, for the way it shall be !!!!

For years now, we have been constantly fighting with ourselves, our thoughts and questioning our own values – asking why we can’t ever be happy. But, all I have known and realised in my little life is, I am very Happy ! My biggest strength inside me is Yours who helps me to know, how much I am loved by the people around me. And for those who unlike me, I am even happier, for they have the best of people around them to love, so what if they hold a different face.

I may always be short of words when it comes to thanking you dear God, but you know deep inside, how much I am !! Happy Thanksgiving !

If the only prayer you said in your whole life was “Thank You”, that would suffice – Edward Sandford Martin.
