WDYS # 170 -A Roundup post

How often we look to others with envy

Thinking that they have what you desire

The dreams of envy often dissolve as we wake up

WDYS # 169 -A Roundup post

Looking deep into the eyes of nature

I feel ashamed that we aren’t looking

After our home as we all should have been

That we have not paid the immense debt

That is owned by each and everyone of us

A debt of gratitude to Mother Nature

For feeding us, sheltering us and nurturing us

The tears of remorse fall from my eyes

I am ashamed that we have fell so short

Of the duty that we should have fulfilled

Looking deep into her eyes, I see her sadness too

➰➰➰

“Eyes of green envy
line the insides of her Anahata chakra heart,
paves a forrest of reflected paths,
limbs scream.
She aches to find her tribe, hidden in the log mine seas.
Her eyes drip peals of emerald pearls,
rooting woven branches that sprout through the cracks
Rejoicing what’s lost…… redeemed. “

WDYS # 168 -A Roundup post

Tired

She sits

Between the statues

She has sculpted precisely

Her passion to give identity, personality

To pieces of marble, or wood

Immense satisfaction generated when lifelike forms emerge

Through sweat and aching muscles she liberates dreams

Her hands calloused, her arms aching, her heart gladdened

WDYS # 167-A Roundup post

I found a pair of old boots

Abandoned in a forest, forlorn

To cheer them up I planted a few ferns in them

When I passed the place next, I was happy to see

That they were blending nicely with the nature

Nature can make the ordinary beautiful, just by its presence
