Micropoems: Precious Gift of Words

Writing isn't just the art of choosing the right words at appropriate places, but also it's in recognizing the point at which and the places or people where we should not use our expressive heartfelt words at all. Some micropoems on the precious gifts of words...


Words are a precious gift
Gifting them to cold hearts
Crushing own heart
In return!

Poem Residing in Your Heart

Today I was struggling  with writing a new poem and for some moments I felt, I can't write anything now. I had an empty feeling without writing. Then, my poem enlightened me to overcome the false empty feeling. Here is the secret my poem told me today...

Poem: Enliven Eyes With Hope

Yesterday I was looking at the hibiscus flower on my desk. I was surprised to see the beauty of the flower before ending the life. We love buds, we love flowers. They are beautiful while blooming. But, yesterday I realized their beauty even when they were fading in the evening. I couldn't resist to capture, the message of a fading flower for the world.

Although, it's the end of the month and the challenge, for our poetry love, it's the time to begin a new challenge.

Poem: Waves of Thoughts

Some micropoems on Anxiety tweeted earlier.  

waves of thoughts,
restless 
when you're not around
feel absolutely lost.

~~~o~~~

these anxiety waves
without you 
unbearable

~~~o~~~

those soothing waves of love
with you 
become
waves of sadness
without you

~~~o~~~

the vicious circle of anxiety
waves of anxious thoughts
and stress of anxiety
give power to each other
circle continues 

~~~o~~~

stop for a while
list clouds of worries
list anxious automatic thoughts
experience them vanishing
keeping realistic

Stotram: You Are With Me

For the past eight days we have been praying Maa Bhagawati in various forms like Mahayoga Sadhana, Kundalini Shakti, Sadguru, Kulaswamini, Women. We even had Darshana from some village temples. Today is Ashtami, 9th day. Yesterday, I felt very relaxed and absolutely free from all the doubts keep bothering our mind due to ignorance.My ignorance - Agyana and thoughts  confined in the material boundaries disappeared by praying and thinking about her presence. I realized her power and why She is Shakti. Today's poem is in the form of my conversation with Devi Maa. The first poem is a hymn to Maa and the second one is in the form of assurance by Maa to her children.

The prayers I could express for all the Navaratri are my heartfelt emotions written in tears.


My Prayer to Devi Maa: 


Millions of names you have
Still
They cant describe you completely
Millions of hymns sing your glory
Still
Theyre incomplete till today

Poem: Do We Really Worship Devi Maa?

Today's poem is dedicated to the worship of Devi Maa in the form of women.

Yesterday I participated in a Twitter chat (Check with hashtag SpiritChat) on celebrating Divine Feminine. My thought about best way of celebrating the supreme power is ending the gender bias. When we worship Devi Maa, the major focus is on rituals and worship in the form of Murti. However, our devotion to Mother Goddess won't be complete till we won't work rigorously to stop the crimes against women and gender bias. Today's poem is all about womanhood.

Hymn: My Life - Sadhana

Today is the third day of Navaratri festival and this year, worshipping Maa Amba in the form of Kundalini Shakti. My life is blessed by Mahayoga path of Sadhana. Sadhana is a life long journey towards self-realization. Mahayoga Sadhana is the worship of Prana - in simple words the worship of our involuntary breathing. Today's poem is a hymn to Maa Kundalini Shakti. Since the auspicious day of Deeksha, in the journey of life and Sadhana,  Maa Bhagwati has become my greatest power. Whenever I think about how Sadhana protects her devotee every moment and how she has blessed my life, tears start rolling....words start flowing.

Poem: Leadership Void

The political era we have been witnessing in recent years seems to be turning into more and more immature leadership. Is it the influence of social media that gives a feeling of power by creating followers' army to attack, abuse the opponent or trend 'whatever' to prove the power to the world? It's quite difficult to analyze the inconsistent policies of Indian political parties these days.

Poem: Yes, I am a Poet

Today UK-wide celebrations for National Poetry Day are going on. I just saw National Poetry Day trending in Indian twitter trends also. Poems and poets are beyond all the boundaries. Reading amazing poems and celebration tweets, I have proud feeling, "Yes, I am a Poet." I thought, why not have some love for poems and the bond between, you and me, that inspires me to write more? A poem dedicated to poets and their power.







Proud to wear the title,
"Yes, I am a poet"
I write for my soul,
Write for my love

Lord Ganesha with Prosperous Golden Aura

Today is Anantachaturdashi, the day of Visarjan of Lord Ganesha who has been showering the fervor and devotion upon all of us for the last ten days. On Ganesh Chaturthi, the first day of Ganesh Festival, I prayed to Lord Ganesha of Sarsabaug (Pune), to bless me with divine words to write poems. I hadn't planned it. But, the Kripa of Lord Ganesha is so great, I have been able to write a new prayer every day for the past ten days. Thank you Ganapati Bappa, my faith in you is strengthened by your powerful and prevailing blessings.

For my dearest Gurudeva's worship, today also tried to write some lines...

Poem: The Priceless Words by Gurudeva

Today is the 88th birth anniversary of my dearest Sadgurudeva H. H. Shri Narayankaka Dhekane Maharaj. Tomorrow we will be celebrating 5th blogging anniversary of Narayankripa. The celebrations have already begun by the poem today. 

Today's poem is a dedication to the priceless words, our beloved Kakamaharaj. Also, the self-thought prompt for today's poem is 'priceless'. 

When I started thinking about this prompt, I remembered Gurudeva and His teachings. 
He rarely used to criticize. I never heard negative words or even a negative tone in His words or work. Actually, He didn't teach or preach much. However, just listening to Him and reading His thoughts on Mahayoga has transformed my life. He only used to give guidelines 'if' asked, only a few priceless words. Here is the poem, dedicated to The Priceless Words by Gurudeva'

Poem: A New Life for Dead Thoughts

Poem: The Delusion of Democracy

Corruption and power have seemed to become two sides of the same coin. We, the common people, get the chance to feel like a super powerful person, once in five years. We feel proud for getting inked. However, later what we have to see is perhaps the delusion of democracy. A poem dedicated to the delusion of democracy. This poem is on a self-thought prompt 'delusion.'

Poem: Write, Write

A motivational poem for all the writers and poets and for the love of writing

20 June 2015

Poem: Enamored

Today's poem is a dedication to my love for Lord Krishna as the ideal leader. This poem is based on inclusion of six words highlighted in bold. Lord Krishna is mainly portrayed as a mischievous guy who was loved by women. However, I love Lord Krishna as a leader.  When I started reading about Him in Mahabharata, I found that so many lies and misconceptions are spread about Him. Even Krishna devotees sometimes mock Him unknowingly. Lord Krishna was a great warrior and a great leader. Also, one more reason, this poem is so different is that women, generally, are not believed to have their imagination or desire of love at such a high level, which can be related to the power of leadership that can bring peace in the world. Women are thought (by many) as some beautiful accessories for men. Can we imagine a love-story that begin with a strategic discussion for world-peace? Can we imagine a love-story where love begins with a dream (and the power to make it reality) for the humanity?

Poem: Fight

The victims of any kind of abuse, may it be physical, emotional, financial, verbal or bullying, over the time become weaker and weaker; mainly psychologically. Finally they lose the hope completely. In such situations, one thing victims should remember that they deserve the life and that's their right. I have been writing on verbal and emotional abuse for some months. Today's poem is dedicated to the victims to motivate them to keep the hope and their fight for justice, alive. It's difficult but...hope has light.

Ayyappa Swami Temple: Heaven on The Earth

Today I went to Bhagwanji's abode, Paramdham and just returned meeting Him. Surprised? We are told that we can meet the God after death and then how can believe His existence. I went to the Ayyappa Swami temple in Dhule today to  spend the peaceful devotional Saturday evening with Ayyappa Swami. The atmosphere is so devotional it's just like the Abode of the God as described in Puranas. The  temple becomes heaven during the Sandhya Samay - the twilight.
