The sun is the body which sustains the life and existence. Before this humongous sphere of raging fire, you learn the value of love and sacrifice and the power of forgiving and forgetting; to let go of the negativity which pulls you back, and rise again to your true spirit!
The moon is the soul of the night sky; spreading the message of sobriety and humility; not blinding you with its brightness, but adding luster to the plain and lifeless, with its subtle and soothing glow. Yes! clouds do come often to overshadow, but nothing can dim the light that shines from within…
The stars reflect your attitude to shine amidst the darkness and ambiguity. It ain’t no matter how small or big you seem to be; face the challenges and just keep twinkling…
I am perched upon the edge of a brittle branch
holding on to it as long as I can
waiting for a brisk autumnal breeze
to pluck and carry me away,
away from my little abode…
And I’m afraid of this wave of change
Of what it will bring to a delicate thing like me
Ambiguity surrounds me
as I twist and twirl
and make several turns,
cross endless boundaries
and swing to and fro
to finally rest on the ground…
And there I found
many more like me
lying there lifeless wanting to explore but waiting for a push…
But then, I was airlifted
the sun glowing through my translucence
not blinding me with its brightness
but adding to my undiscovered glimmer I found myself at a height, I doubted I could ever reach that those who dare to fly can only achieve…
Alas! the moment didn’t last long
as I glided off towards the world beneath,
twisting and twirling again
But now I wasn’t afraid Cause’ I have seen the ‘lift’ and I have seen the ‘glide’ And I have seen the spiritless and I dared to take a chance I dared to be different…
This picture reflects such a strong message. It calms the ever-chattering mind and gives so much peace and solace; pacifies the soul and fills it with sobriety. The trees swaying with the wind convey that sometimes we must let go of things which disturb our inner peace. At certain times, we must refrain from being a rebel and just go with the flow. We will definitely alleviate; time heals the pain of grief. We just need to synchronize with it and let ourselves loose; not bonding with the complexity.
Another message is that, people who are great and noble-minded do not show off their worth or rank. They are humble and can easily bend, for good and betterment. Just like those tall trees who bow without shame, while the short ones are as stiff as pole, desperately trying to make themselves more conspicuous. People who are for-bearing and forgiving do not have to grasp attention, their deeds and righteousness is evident.
There is something peculiar yet satisfying about nature. There are so many things to learn from it; most important being humility and harmony.
The towering mountains, humongous seas and oceans leaves you in awe. You are forced to bow in front of them. I feel awkward and dejected when people talk about “conquering” mountains. It’s actually the mountain that let’s you pass through it, with utter patience and humility. Hadn’t it been benevolent enough, people would never have climbed it and instead faced it’s wrath.
People living in the shelter of nature share a mutual understanding with it. They respect nature’s beauty and in return, nature cocoons them with tenderness.
Everything under nature lives in symbiosis. The first drop of rainfall cheers up the parched soil and quenches its thirst. The limpid glory which rests itself upon the soft glossy bed of a leaf, looks like pearls which embellish the surroundings. It seems that nature heals those who wish to live in it’s fold.
So, when you go out for adventurous trip, do remember to pack with you, humility, trust, low demands and empathy along with raincoats and boots.
You will find your path more easier to walk on and journey would be all the more pleasant.
I can very much compare myself to a nocturnal species like owls!! Having fondness for nights, I tend to appreciate it’s beauty and uniqueness as compared to other times of the day.
The clouds in the night sky look as if some grey water color has spilled on the canvas of sky. With stars doing the highlights, the canvas looks absolutely mesmerising !! An occasional streak of lightning also contributes to the beauty of the scenery.
Standing in the balcony, one must pay heed to the nightly choir of our knightly insects. Such amazing creatures they are!! – Celebrating their warrior spirit as well as heroism amidst solitude and solace, instead of making it a great show!
The petrichor and the herbaceous aroma of the foliage gives one’s nose, plenty of pleasure. It also calms the mind, leaving you in a fantasy land.
With all the beauty, night carries with it, it also gives me a pleasant atmosphere to work as well as concentrate.
Someone has rightly said, that beautiful things are not boastful or pretend to be bright in the daylight. Instead they shine when the world is dark and asleep…
The raindrop that feels cool on your face has gone through a lot of heat and pressure. It has survived the storms of distress and suppression, but still remains pure and clear. It is only because of the heat, that the raindrop has discovered new realms and colors of the universe.
These storms are a complimentary and unwanted item in every one’s plate of life. It’s how we embrace them and change the odds into evens, while still maintaining our original form.
“We will appreciate the brightness only when we face the darkness”
