Red Roses

A smile like sunshine beaming golden sparkles,
A smile as pure as honey,
A smile so genuinely full of cheer,
A smile so infectious,
A smile that triggers a sparkle right thru’  the eyes,
A smile that lights up the dullest of moments,
A smile that spreads joy n kindles happiness thru' a warm glow,
A smile that trigger a flutter deep within the heart,
A smile that naturally turns on another one to follow,
A smile that's the fountain of felicity,
A smile that makes despair and troubles seem so far away,
A smile that makes you feel hope's only a stone’s throw away,
A smile that says the whole world is yours,
A smile... real n priceless!

The Perfect Light

Wanna be engrossed in whispers of  woods,
 Wanna watch angel clouds hit mountain tops florishing raindrops,
 Wanna feel gentle wind  strokes n soft raindrops delicately brush away,
 Wanna watch the violent waves  kiss the shores,,
Wanna feel golden sand wriggle away delicately,
 Wanna watch dancing stars in the wilderness of night,
Wanna get lost in the isolation n peace in darkness......

 Wanna go down the memory lane,
nostalgically gathering those carefree moments of childhood,
 Wanna feel the aura of that inner self, sensitive n natural,
 Wanna hear  words that the soul speaks......
Sometimes being alone is ecstasy,
Sometimes solitude n hearing the enchanting music of silence is

On the wings of a butterfly....

dancing tulips 2

Like each blooming bud,
Unique and poignant,
You are special

Like each butterfly that evolves,
Joyous, graceful and distinct,
You are special

Like sunshine and rainbow,
Warm, blended of mesmerising shades,
You are special

Like the morning mist,
Soothing and pleasant, gentle and tantalizing,
You are special

Like rain and snow,
Drenching cool, pure and enchanting,
You are special

Like breath and life,
Naturally complimenting,
Wings spread over this mighty ocean,
Sharing this beautiful path of wonderful ups and lill downs of life..

Taking flight…...
on the wings of a butterfly

Soaring in the clouds,
boundaries unknown
vast and deep….

Caressing wind, 
melodies of musical whispers,
Watching sleet and snow
pain unknown,
Darkness sloshed amidst dusk n dawn,
Rhythmic beats,
Emotions snuggled within

Sweet solitude from radiance within,
Spreading wings,
beginning another journey,
 fearlessly flying higher than the mountains,
nothin to hold back,
nothing to lose,
A moon's glow complimenting the inner soul,
In all beauty n splendour,
sweetness n grace,
Glide along....

High Key Romance 2

Sunsets, fiery red yet mellow n soft
like your eyes on mine,

Delicate tender petals of roses
 like new love gentle in your fingers' touch,

Blushes of  early spring blossom..
Strawberry stained lips setting ablaze fire,

Passion unknown
 exploring mystical love,
Unseen colours
celebration of passionate love...

Eternal beauty...

Natural Bridge

Beauty, ever so blue,
grace, serenity, everlasting peace,
racing swiftly to embrace,
searching for thy beloved,
unfolding umpteen secrets held on shadowy mist,

Sweetest serenade in its music,
like lovers whispering sweet nothings,
meditating hearts beating to the language of soul,
an eternal beauty,
 showing off its beauty and grace…

Kissing Goodbye was never so exhilarating….

Walk in the Clouds flash warning (this is a ticker running thru the screen, I am not spending time in getting that ticker thingie on, but that's how i wanted it to appear:)) : One of the posts contesting against my own set records for the LONGEST CLOUD PATCHES…if you have walked upon the clouds by an error click, here's a golden chance to hit escape!

Does fear show up when you would have ideally loved to do it? Does fear show up each time you want and attempt it? Is it a set boundary? Who set it up? Does it film your thoughts each time you want to release and dissolve that boundary set in your head…Well, these were the questions thrown at me sometime back and cheerz to that moment, I decided it was high time and more than time up to confront one of my biggest fears.

Felt often, that in some cases, it’s more easily said than done and it occurred to me each time I wanted to break open from this fear, which I realized I was actually holding on closely to. Each time someone convinced me to try it out and I thought I should and get off this mind block of fear, there was something drastic that pulled me back and I trusted this freaky instinct or rather it monopolized my thought process. Don’t know how it took birth…there was no specific instance though…

Not a fear of being judged nor a fear of saying the truth…Its something I had tracked long back, accepted it, but never managed to confront head on...Its about the fear of heights, referred to as 'Acrophobia' in real terms. Played a rather nasty role in my life…nasty in the sense I never could enjoy heights even though I loved the beauty in it, it was this fear that curbed me most of all. Felt horribly sick and uneasy being in shackles of this feeling but it requires lots more than that to overcome it .. When I visited lovely locales on heights and refused to look down the edge to enjoy that beautiful feeling of standing there experiencing the carefree breeze hitting and admiring that view…enjoy that exhuberent feeling of being on top of the world! Cliffs scare me to death…while others enjoyed it, much as I would have also loved to! For the love of doing it, I would hold on to someone for my dear life and stand there for a few minutes and give up with a dizzied feeling left behind…motivated by Fear!

Looking down from heights while in aircrafts, glass cube elevators or looking down from the 17th floor of a room that is secured with glass panes from top to bottom - I enjoy but when it comes to looking down from top of heights where it is open ended, boundary less with nothing to secure you, that's where it creeps in…for e.g. Those various peaks at Mahabaleshwar referred to as 'Points' …that is the scary part, where the phobia kicks in…looking down from there creates a weird feeling in my stomach, a huge vaccum…it’s a horrible feeling in the head is all I can say and the role it played was crucial... To a certain extend it drained out the passion in my life. It's not that fear is a terrible thing but somewhere it started controlling me on this bit !

Actually DOING IT
It all happened on the last day of a 2 days ‘Leadership Forum’ I attended. These Forums bring in quite a lot of excitement in our organizational set-up. To start with you have the opportunity of interacting various people spread over countries lots of knowledge sharing and of course you gather useful chips that immediately gets into head and you absorb it like a sponge and the rest of it of course to throw off the window as soon as you are out of the session. Well, there were great ones on a loved feeling "Success"..very interesting pieces actually, group discussions, presenting your ideas etc. During one of the exercises we were made to list down Fear Factors..well people had different fear factors, which prevented them from opening up ideas, coming out with out of the box thinking, being bold to express novel ideas, fear of being rubbished, fear of failing, fear of being judged and so on and so forth…and I listed mine too, honestly..

Any ways fear factors discussed…debates et al happened. In that group of all of 35 members, I was the only one with this typical fear factor…neways I thought it ended there..knowing little what was going to hit me later…

The end of our Leadership Forum was a mini ‘Rappling’ exercise with gears and professionals to set you up on that adventure and cheer you up, if you really required it. From the seventh floor of a building terrace walls to the first floor terrace. That was supposed to be a fun venture ending for two days of a knowledge sharing platform..Well, the thought of it gave me jitters and I anyways made a master plan to wriggle away… I sort of procrastinated on anything that I don’t want to do, I started off with this one too…. Now that the team members and the faculty knew a bit of each member in the team, they took it easy too, left me at it, I was all excited to see the other's doing it and typically screaming wooowwwww, cooool and this one really resembles Spiderman n all of that blah, laughing it out, while suppressing my own fear…Well, all good things don’t last forever, no? Only some do and this exuberant feeling of enjoying others at it didn’t last too!
Bottom line..none of my tricks seemed to click!

34th member of the team done with his adventure on rappling…the last one left HAS TO do it too…since there was a fear factor involved there was lot of sensitivity too…either it was holding on to it and living with a unreasonably sick feeling or conquering this one time and getting over it once and for all... Finally, I made up my mind. You can imagine the scene with people coaxing, convincing and cheering and the lump in my throat and my eyes almost heavy, butterflies nowhere around but rambling in my stomach…didn’t leave back an iota of strength and guts I possessively held...booted and got belted to strings…made up my mind actually (did that once more)…that moment helped me go one step beyond my fear factor…I looked down from there and I could only see colleagues who had encouraging looks down those 7 floors…the first move was to let go off that support of the terrace walls and hold on to the string and get my hands off the wall, I was so close that I didn’t want to look back now…it took me about 15 minutes to get over that meta-anxiety…that feeling of being scared…the conviction to embrace fear…deep breaths…keeping calm and a moment to cling on to the rope………….….….
I was there and I knew I was going to make it this time...

It took me 15 minutes to make up my mind after being belted and to take that first step but the rest of the drop was just pure exhilaration…

It just takes DOING IT...It was all in my mind….kissed that feeling Goodbye and chucked into the big sea
Treks, Mountain views & hot air balloon rides (always loved these adventures)…Here I come with the warmest bear hug:))
