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.

You Are Strong…


When the whole world stops,
And there is nothing to hope,
You give your smile,
To convince me that all is well,
Oh baby! You are strong.
When my heart starts to bleed,
And it gets hard for me to breathe,
Then you hug me and kiss me to calm my mind,
I see the resilience in your eyes,
Oh baby! You are strong.
When it gets hard to take another step,
All I see are the walls and there is no way to escape,
You take my hand to go for a walk,
And show me a world beyond those walls,
Oh my baby! You are strong.

A Day In The Museum..

It felt good to spend a rainy day in the museum yesterday. The British Museum, London is one of the best museums in the world. Being in that place makes us feel how truly blessed we are as human beings when it comes to evolution, intelligence and talent.

British Museum is really huge and it may take a day to actually go through each and everything kept there. It’s good for children because my daughter enjoyed seeing antique clocks, treasure chest and sculptures.

I’m just going to share a few of the pictures that I took yesterday. Hope you will enjoy it.

An antique clock
Offerings to Buddha, AD 178
Ghost figure from Africa
You know from where it is….
A cash register!!
A clock!!
Mesopotamian!!

My Little Sunshine….

When my life turns upside down,
When I feel all alone,
When none of the things feel right,
When everything in front of me is an upsetting sight,
I see you running towards me,
To wrap your arms around me,
Then you give me your soothing kiss on my cheeks,
Did I ever tell you this?
That you are my little sunshine,
You are my little sunshine...

Forever…..

Saw pure love in their eyes,
When they were gazing each other's eyes,
A half a century of life together,
Still they love to have moments together.
Finding a person to love is a blessing,
But to be loved in the same way needs more blessings,
Their love and care for each other made my heart warm,
When I saw him tucking her to keep her body warm.
When they said forever in their vows,
They meant each and every word of their vows,
To be there for each other is not overrated,
Forever is not at all overrated.

Clouds….

“If you use your imagination, you can see lots of things in the cloud formations.”

Charles M. Schulz

Clouds have always been an attraction to my eyes. As a child, I used to look up the sky and tried to identify the shapes that the clouds form. To be honest, I still do it. You may think it’s silly but I can’t help it . Sheep, cows, fish, Jesus and fairies are just few examples that I have found. All the above images are taken on my phone on different days and times. Oh yes! I love to collect those pictures too.

Hope you will enjoy the pics and the cloud idioms, quotes and phrases.

Every dark cloud has a silver lining….
Under a cloud ….
On cloud nine….
In the clouds….
Head in the clouds….
Gathering clouds….
“Try to be a rainbow in someone’s cloud.”
― Maya Angelou

“Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.”

Rabindranath Tagore

Clouds in the sky very much resembles the thoughts in our minds! Both changes perpetually from one second to another!”

Mehmet Murat ildan

“The air up there in the clouds is very pure and fine, bracing and delicious. And why shouldn’t it be?- it is the same the angels breathe.”

Mark Twain

“Don’t forget: beautiful sunsets need cloudy skies.”

Paulo Coelho

Spirit

You will find the greatest human spirits,
In the hell's deepest pits,
Where people refuse to surrender to what happened to them,
And don't allow to be defined by the people around them.

There is an unrelenting human spirit in each one of us,
That helps us to fight any evil forces,
An undefeatable mind and a body in motion,
With courage, resilience, love and compassion.
