Roses in the farm

Photo Credits: Janewheeler.co.uk

It was spring as I remember

Her face beamed,

As zephyr brushed her hair

She smiled,

Seeing roses in the farm

Singing aloud,

Waiting for her man

She wrote another song

Seasons passed…

Woke up with a jolt,

She looked around the empty room

Rubbing her eyes,

She gazed through the porch

It was snowing,

And there were no roses in the farm.

 

LOVE ONE ANOTHER

LOVE ONE ANOTHER
Love one another, but make not a bond of love.
Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.
Fill each other’s cup, but drink not from one cup.
Give one another of your bread, but eat not from the same loaf.
Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone.
Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music.
Give your hearts, but not into each other’s keeping.
For only the hand of life can contain your hearts.
And stand together, yet not too near together.
For the pillars of the temple stand apart.
And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other’s shadow.
-Khalil Gibran
A very practical poem by Khalil Gibran which holds meaning in all eras. What I understand from this poem is Love is good, however, too much of it is smothering. We like being around people who care for us and love us, but the moment that love starts chasing us as our shadows, it puts our existence in obscurity. An important lesson taught here by the Lebanese poet that love each other, respect each other but do not make your heart and soul dependent on each other.

April, Autism, Awareness

aut_awareness_month

Here comes the April exclusively for the Autistics. This post is dedicated to my friend’s autistic brother and I know, though it’s bit difficult to put up with them but you love these innocent harmless and intelligent beings.

                                                       Accept them, Love them, Understand them.

Rainy Valentine’s

valentine rainHaven’t seen Rains in February

Is the city all teary?

It longs to see the true love,

Like cupid mourning doves

Each drop yearns to rehear,

Those lyrical Shakespeare

It is painted red today,

To hide the greys of everyday

Can’t it be colored all the time?

Celebrating each day as Valentine’s.

Goodness of pets

Say hello to my new pets – Mama Mia. Yes that’s their name.  LovebirdsFrom the picture it looks like as if they don’t know each other but they are infact lovebirds. It was their first day at home when they were quite wary of their new surroundings and so were kind of perplexed. Now after almost 4 days I know why are they called lovebirds. I can’t stop admiring them when they are canoodling each other at night. When I first saw them doing it, I couldn’t keep my eyes off from them but they are such intelligent beings as when they sensed the intrusion, they slowly contained their composure. Since then I now don’t gaze them but let them have their moment.

I don’t know if it’s true or not but it is said that lovebirds keep one partner for life. Since the time I have brought them home I feel so poetic at nights, they have brought back the inspiration in me. I am glad I got them home as they have made my nights utterly romantic and philosophical.  That’s the goodness of pets. And I want to pay them back, so here’s Keats (one of my favorites) to my lovebirds.

“Softly the breezes from the forest came,
Softly they blew aside the taper’s flame;
Clear was the song from Philomel’s far bower;
Grateful the incense from the lime-tree flower;
Mysterious, wild, the far-heard trumpet’s tone;
Lovely the moon in ether, all alone:
Sweet too, the converse of these happy mortals,
As that of busy spirits when the portals
Are closing in the west; or that soft humming
We hear around when Hesperus is coming.
Sweet be their sleep.”
John Keats to Fanny Brawne

A new way of PDA

If you are single have you ever envied any married couple? I have always wondered how newly married couple publicize their whole love affair on social networking websites. This can be counted as a new way of Public Display of Affection (PDA).  I am not a fan of the mushy long write-ups by newly weds about their ongoing marital life. Their periodic gushing and regular updates on how amazing their last night date was, is repelling.  I mean I am sure they are in love which is why they married in the first place but telling it aloud to public again and again puts a doubt on that very love. Is it not juvenile to thank your partners on completion of a week,  month or an year; I thought it’s a duty of a spouse to keep the other one happy, thanking them just demeans the whole idea of marriage. I would be more interested if somebody displayed their marriage as not an amazing one as they thought it would be.

There could be a lot of hypothesis that explain this unwanted social networking displays.

One is that such couples are so much in love that they can’t contain it and it becomes necessary to involve others as happy comments by latter such as “Lucky You”, “Happy for You” make the couples feel that they have done something extraordinary.

Second is for publicity I think, before marriage they were used to of a lot of attention which of course starts reducing after they are hitched, so fear of that losing territory encourages them to post just “anything”.

Third could be they want all the people to know that Marriage is not such a bad thing as it is deemed as and they prove it by professing the endless love between them. This is also one way to make all those singles feel bad who think they are cool.

Fourth is my favorite and probably the most common reason and it is that they are just jobless. They have been exchanging deep feelings about each other in private but when they get bored they want to involve more people in this game.

More annoying part is when other who are ok to such immature confessions throw stupid comments. But they are fun to read.  I know it’s a free country and love is something which needs to be shared and all stuff..blah blah but I would still tell such people to Get-a-Room please.

Till death do us part..

2014-01-10This picture was clicked today (January 11th), a bright sunny  winter morning. I want to dedicate my post today to my pet.

CoCo, I know I scold you a lot of times and we fight at times when I don’t agree with something you want to do but my sugarpie I want to tell you, you are the greatest joy of my life. You bring so much happiness in my heart that sometimes I can’t contain my emotions and write blogposts on you. You, unlike other obedient pets, keep me busy, not giving me time to ponder on stressful things. I may sometimes overlook things you do for me, but I always have you in my mind. I think bringing you home was the best decision of my life though I say otherwise when you chew my favorite slippers or run after stray dogs with your leash on, keeping me baffled, but I know the truth. You are my “Dennis The Menance”.  I don’t know what would I do without you.
