Highway Plant

Everytime I travel through the highway,
I see green plants planted in the middle of the road for dividing the lanes.
Beautiful – I should say,
But who is taking care of them?
Who planted them there?
Who fixed their fate?
I believe we won’t be able to stand in the middle of the highway for atleast an hour.
Who has the patience to persist –
The smoke from the trucks,
The heat of the sun,
The harsh polluted wind,
The not-so-gentle rain &
The never ending noise of vehicles?
Patience is a million dollar virtue,
But we have a choice. Don’t we?
What choice does the highway plant have in it’s life?
Do we even give it a choice?
Still, it never fails to make travellers happy.
Maybe, it is a living proof that no matter where we are, we still have something to offer for the betterment of Life.
Stay blessed Highway Plant!

Night Sky

Everywhere I see…
White dots all above me !!!
The stars stay quiet in the silence of the night.
All that I wish to see on Earth now is dark:
Our Sun has gone to rest for the day.
The memories of the day flashed in my mind.
Did I forget to smile ???
I don’t know…
Is the sky – nothing, but an empty space ???
My soul failed to give me an answer…
Who will answer me ???

Love

What will they think of us?
Who knows their language?
Do they think in the same way we think…
Or, just pretend to make us think that way…
What is their language?
Love, my heart says…
Maybe…Love is a language !
If so,
Then it is the most powerful language in the world.
It’s the language which makes
Birds chirp,
Dogs bark,
Lions roar and
Sun shine…

Be the Miracle

Miracles are awesome…They always are…
Every soul longs for one thing or the other…
Sometimes Big…Sometimes Small…
However, the possibilities of a miracle happening to you is always narrow…
Be grounded in Hope…
Hope requires endless Patience…
And Patience is a million-dollar virtue…
There is always a possibility of an awesome miracle happening to you…
You try to unravel the mysteries of our universe –
But, the mystery is beyond human understanding…
The Sun goes down in the evening…
Make sure you see the Moon…
Rain Clouds pour rain in all places…
The Rivers fall from mountains and rush to the ocean…
The Thunder claps and vanishes…
The Rainbow gives sheer joy…
The peacock dances with no worries…
You always expect a miracle to happen…
Miracles may happen or not…
But, never forget the fact that ‘You are a Miracle’…
BE THE MIRACLE!

Sunshine

My watch shows 5.45 AM.
I can barely hear a violent sound.
Harmony fills the air.
I am standing on the seashore…
Literature has described the breaking of dawn in a million ways,
I could remember nothing.
All I could hear is the sound of waves hitting the shore.
A fisherman gets ready to start their day.
An elderly couple starts their morning walk.
A tea master starts to prepare tea.
A bird flies off her nest.
A traffic policeman starts his day duty – and
I am hearing the Church bell ringing boldly.
Up came from the sea –
A light to abolish darkness of the night.
Little by little – He conquers the darkness.
I felt the warmth in my soul bit by bit.
The day starts in no time.
My watch shows me 6 AM and I am starting my day.
Never will I forget my usual dialogue I say to my friends:
Even if the moon fails to reflect light back to Earth,
The Sun keeps shining…
Be like the Sun.
