HAIKU #99 My perception

Alone not lonely
Familiar with my footsteps
Walking trail -a friend

Random-PEACE Reflection of their expressions

The cause of many sufferings

Happiness an illusion

Never stays for long

Never consistent

Always dependent

Still everyone is running

Trying to own it

BUDDHA did not go in search of happiness

Neither did Kabir or other great Saints

For them there was nothing to be achieved

With my limited observation

I could say

The common bond they shared

Is

The serenity and calm

The love and generosity

And

Their state of Inner PEACE

Random – Tea

Desi chai of Jammu

While having my morning ☀️ tea, my thoughts took me to the world of this magic beverage.

The tiny leaves may be the only one (not sure) having so varied tastes and colors. And every tea lover has his/her unique taste and style of making. A “cup of tea” is our companion, supporting us in our good times or bad times.

For me it created a few very precious friendships and lots of Memories. 💕.

Today I thank the first planter of T😇.

Am I doing Charity?

Someone asked me
What you do for charity?
I said ‘nothing’
Silence !!!
Then a look of superiority
On the other face
Is the charity a great deed?
Well I do not think so
I feed a hungry mouth
That is kindness
I wipe tears of pain
That is compassion
I stand by someone
That is sympathy
I never ignore plea for help
That is duty
I embrace every being
That is humility
I stand by my dear ones
That is love
I is not my ego
That is consciousness
I am what HE choose to make me
That is why I am nothing
But reflection of HIM
My acts are not for others
That is my true self

TANKA #2 – Simplicity way of life

Where will I find?

The freedom for all to move

Without boundaries

In harmony and at peace

Co-existing Mountainside

Roads are meant for all, not just for vehicles. Humbled by scenes like these, I feel that all is not lost. We are still a sensitive race

HAIKU #79 Natural Togetherness

Welcoming others

They know nature has plenty

Our greed destroying

 

One of the most humble experience watching these sheep grazing at lush green mountains of Kud. Not once they tried to push each other away. We the so called humans may be the only one always wanting other’s share too.

Tanka #1 Trees – lonely magnificence

My mute companions
Tall,ageless,rooted trees
Silent witnesses
Holding secrets of mankind
Can you please whisper to me?

Dear friends,
Most of the shoots have been captured while moving. From Jammu &Kashmir to Himachal Pradesh the magnificent and ever changing beauty is a treat for eyes. I always think that there may be so much hidden treasures in the trees, which are there for generations to generations. They are intriguing with their shapes and colors. Some naked without the protection of their coverings (the leaves) stand tall and proud in their beauty.

Let’s take care not to destroy them for our selfish use because our life span is just a fraction of theirs. And they are the Symbol of hope and prosperity for human lives yet to come.
