Last Night…

Sometimes, dreams try to talk to you


Last night I saw you on my way,
Talking to someone and walking away,
I saw you were all smiling and happy with your life,
While you made me to think all about my life.
Last night I saw you turned to look at me,
And your helpless eyes spoke to me,
I felt a twitch in my heart as I saw the sea infront of you,
Were you happy for yourself or for someone that you knew?
Last night I saw that you were saying goodbye,
While wind whispered in my ears all the secrets of your eye,
In that cold dark night I saw your tears coming through,
Last night I think I dreamt of you.

Beauty! Where is it?



With a flawless skin which has no sign of aging,
And dark long hair which can be really engaging,
Deep blue eyes which has an ocean inside,
Anyone would love to dive in without knowing what is inside,
She has a perfect smile that can lit up the sky,
But with a dark heart reflecting all the evils under the sky.



Other one is an epitome of ugliness that's how the world see,
With no facial features or perfect teeth,
People love to swipe quickly as her picture comes on screen,
But her acts of kindnesses are always honoured behind the screen.
Her eyes are doves symbolizing peace and love,
And hands so warm that can calm any storm with a touch or a hug,
She is a free spirit woman who you can never tame,
So, if I want to define beauty what it would be?

Under The Moonlight

Yesterday, while walking back from work I was able to capture this beautiful sight on my phone. What a sight!

The light of the Moon reminds us that when we share the light of others, we shine in our own unique way.

Suzy Davies

There was something about the moon. The way it reminded me of the hope I sometimes clung to. A sliver of light in all that darkness.

Michelle Chamberland

Perhaps everything can be solved by a walk in moonlight.

Marty Rubin

I slept under the moonlight and set my soul free, caged within jars like fireflies.

Stranger


Something strange happened today,
I got a smile for the rest of the day,
We met a charming lady on our way to the shop,
While I was rushing through and said my girl to chop chop.
This woman at an elderly age,
Was sitting on a wheelchair and looked like a sage,
She waved,smiled and gave my child a shake hand,
It gave me a feeling like someone has already planned,
To meet a stranger and to make my day,
I would love to meet a stranger like her everyday.

My sketch

When you are physically and mentally tired and all you need is something that can lift you up, what will you choose?

What I do is, I search for my pencils and when I find them, then it’s sketch time. So, here is my sketch today.

Hope you will like it.

As Years Pass By

As years pass by,
I wonder if would ever see anyone to whom I said goodbye,
All my friends from my childhood,
And the people who lived in my neighborhood.


The teachers who taught me the right from wrong,
My first crush with whom I never got along,
The people who encouraged me to dance and paint,
The grandma next door who told the story of a saint.


As years pass by,
I wonder to how many people I have said goodbye,
The people who once I thought that I could not live without,
Now, sometimes I think what was that about?


As years pass by,
I wonder how fast the time flies by,
If I could ever walk back my life,
I would never miss a chance to say a proper goodbye even though we had a strife.

“Every flower is a soul blossoming in nature.” – Gerard de Nerval

Like wildflowers; You must allow yourself to grow in all the places people thought you never would.

E.V.

The earth laughs in flowers.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly our whole life would change.

Buddha

A flower blossoms for its own joy.

Oscar Wilde

Many eyes go through the meadow, but few see the flowers in it.

Ralph Waldo Emmerson

A flower does not think of competing with the flower next to it. It just blooms.

Zen Shin

Strength


Strength is when you get up every morning,
And all you want is to do moaning,
Instead you decide to get dressed,
Believing that you are amazingly blessed.


Strength is when you are in a rabbit hole,
But try to put a smile on every soul,
And even when you are tired to take another step,
You lend a hand who have fallen on their doorstep.


Strength is when your heart bleeds,
Still take the decisions according to their needs,
Even though the person has hurt you so much,
You just hope for their happiness without any grudge.


Strength lies in our values and integrity,
It lies in understanding our talent and capability,
Strength is not only physical but emotional and mental too,
It's walking in the darkness keeping your head high and believing that you will get through.

The Heartbreak


You will be that pain in my heart that never gets old,
As your lies were taking chances one by one to unfold,
A scar in my heart that will always be new,
While you are partying with someone I knew.
Time heals everything they say,
Hoping that it won't be a lifetime and that's what I pray,
How could one can understand another's soul so deeply,
Yet can't see their betrayals
and be blind completely?
-JMJ

I wrote this poem while I was watching Grace and Frankie. It was actually Frankie who inspired me as she loved Sol and knew each and every minute details about him but didn’t realize that he was cheating on her for about two decades. Irony is that they were like soulmates.
