Poem: The Inseparable Core

It's the last day of November and we finished daily poetry writing for the entire month. Initially, I wasn't sure about writing every day because of health issues. I am happy that health stayed well and I could write new poems.  After four months of nerve palsy, December will be the first month, I won't have an appointment with the Neurosurgeon. 

The recovery journey for the past months made me more lonely, more anxious about the loss of work and eyes. I would wake up very depressed and defeated especially when the diplopia occurred once again after initial partial recovery. During the second episode of the disease, I couldn't see much progress. Then, I decided to devote more time to Sadhana, (spiritual practice). I hadn't stopped working. Living and working with double vision was heartbreaking. 

Seeing two images of everything and then focusing on the one to perform any task was the hardest thing to do. When one eye stops moving or both eyes don't move in synchronization, each eye shows its own image. I had to see two different images of everything, for every moment the eyes were open. I lived this challenge twice. Two images weren't equal. The image created by the affected eye would appear tilted. Moving eyes in any direction would increase the misalignment without any fixed rule of the vision created. It's almost impossible to articulate how I faced each and every day with diplopia. Diplopia has gone completely now, with medication and eye exercises  and I hope current progress will be stable without medicines as well. Paralysis and its recovery are absolutely unpredictable. Today, I have normal vision restored and I feel, it's the God's grace and answer to the prayers and wishes my friends.

For the last day of November, dedicating a poem to Mahayoga Sadhana with whom I spent the time of dismay of diplopia. The only time I could give some rest to my brains from two images was when eyes were closed. 

Image: Inseparable Core

You awakened me from the
dark sleep of ignorance
You revived my lost 'self' 

for the most vital perseverance
Whenever clouds of sadness
hindered my hope
You lightened up the dedication
to build the path to cope
Whenever I got overwhelmed 
by the circumstances and lost the direction
You showed me the very 

next essential step in the right direction
You cleared the noise of my
thought-generated uncertainties
You purified my mind to
discover the spiritually-assured certainties
You blessed me the courage to
walk again with the unfailing confidence
And blessed me the resilience 

to work again with the consistent brilliance
Whenever I got drowned in 
the darkness of depressed mind
Your blessings appeared with 

the light of rising sun and fortune shined
I bow to you again and again
for being the inseparable core of me
which constitutes my survival 
after life-shaking challenges and the true me.

Thank you for always being so supportive. Your support is itself a motivation to work on a new idea every day. I wish this beautiful month would never end. But change is the beauty of life. We will keep meeting with new poems, new posts and a new zeal further also.

Poem: Fervency

Tides in the mind
and words are quiet
Unwritten verses
and Unspoken voices
Speak that words can't
From heart to heart
A poem of fervency

Image: Poem Fervency

From heart to heart
Where words fail
But heart sings its fervency
Distance fails
Because heart reaches
Constraints fail
And boundless heart flies
to reach its destination
The poem of fervency
reaches from heart to heart

Poem: Heartsease

Reciting your name

With every breath, I inhale
By the fright

Text Image for Poem: Heartsease

What if this one is the last
And lived it without your name?

The fulfilment in the desperation
The heartsease in the restiveness
Your name,
Your love,
The faith that is you!

Poem: Meditation

Some lines on what I understand as meditation...

Poem: Meditation

Thoughts appearing on the plane of the mind
In the crowds of chaotic clouds
And slowly disappearing, evaporating
One by one in silence
Meditation transpiring on its own

Two flowers inspired me today's poem,

"Having friends like You."

Poem: Emptying The Emptiness

Past three months of the nerve palsy and its recurring symptoms caused some emptiness in mind. Many times I wrote about peace when I used to feel so. Today, trying to understand the emptiness.

Text Image for the poem: Emptying The Emptiness

Fetching words from a big hollow
From the emptiness, that appears in mind
The Emptiness has something in it
Trying to extract it
What's it?

Poem: I know I can

The assurance and the positivity Lord Krishna brings in the heart, 

I know 
I can
win against all odds,
win tough battles of life,
And create a world of my dreams,
Because I know,
You are with me,
Dear Krishna!

Poem: Words

It's the third week of the writing month. We have already finished two weeks of poems. It's going smoother than I thought in the beginning. All these days are full of learning new words and rules. Yesterday, I was so drenched in learning that for one moment I felt, my room is full of words and I am learning to feel all of them one by one. So today's poem is dedicated to words. 

Some have colors of rainbow
Some colored words have shades
Some have shades without colors

Poem: The Door To Peace

Today Kartik Purnima and Gurupurab - the birth anniversary of Gurunanakdevji is being celebrated. So today's poem is my dedication to Gurudwara and the teachings of Gurunanakdevji.

I may not have in-depth knowledge of Sikhism, but I discover deep peace whenever I visit the Gurudwara here in Dhule. And the devotees in Gurudwara, are so humble and devoted to the principles they believe, meeting them my faith in kindness gets strengthened. Also, during the situations of crisis, anywhere in the world, Gurudwaras across the globe are opened for all.

Poem: The App Called 'My Life'

I always try to keep my rational plus technogy-overwhelmed thought process as an Engineer and poetic thinking separate from each other. For today's poem, I thought to mix them, let's see what happens...

Testing words 
Valid, invalid, partly valid
Encoding emotions
In verses
Decoding heart
In poems

It's Kartiki Ekadashi, today, the eleventh day of the month Kartik according to Lunar Calendar. It's the day of Pandharpur pilgrimage or Wari. So, for today I thought to offer a poetic Puja to Lord Vitthala. Today, a hymn to Lord Vitthala. 

Scariest is
the thought of forgetting you,
For a single moment
I fear, I may forget you
But what I wanna say to you
Is never ever leave me
I am nothing without you

Poem: Melting

November has begun and many bloggers and writers are preparing for their next novel or poetry anthology. I have decided to try to write at least one poem per day. We did it in April, last time. Blogging every day is a bit difficult with a daily new poem. But posting poems or not, I will try to write, for sure. What I learnt from participating in different challenges is writing poems every day keeps mind fresh and free from writer's block. For me writing comes with realizations about self and life.

Here is today's poem. A lovely poem of a lovely conversation with the love.

My heart is melting in you

And you know it soothes me
And you know I let it melt
I let myself melt

I witness my ego melt
And it's when I don't want to open my eyes

Would shower love 
With my millions of tiny drops
