Blessed!

My wrinkles hold many memories tucked between their folds,

to be buried with me.

Today, I look into the mirror,

 proud of each scar I carry, each joy I experienced.

As the moonlight casts its lambent glow,

I smile, celebrating my journey of life.

Random Musing – A Peek into the Future!

Anna Loenenko@unsplash

The rapid technological strides, paints bold strokes of change,

of the world that may be, in the times to come.

Flux of artificial living, incarcerates all things natural.

Emotions ossified by automated wiring of the heart

 bereft of feelings, nonchalant cryptic conversations ensue,

measured capsules, replace warm home cooked food.

Thoughts of people audible through a scan,

robotic intelligence commands erudite brains,

human touch lynched by technology.

Man, lives on a programmed existence.

A century from now, way of life may be unfathomable!

Are you in the Present?

white how now are you? neon light

The mind travels without an agenda

awakening the memories of the past, from its slumber,

hijacking our today,

 into the unknown fears of the future.

 Oscillating between the two ends of the spectrum

our “now” sacrificed at the altar of this tussle.

The key is just a simple choice we make

from the millions of moments that weave our life

lease not, your present, to yesterdays and tomorrows

for they are tenants who only add heartaches and anxieties.

In this transient world, all that matters is “Now”,

for the living in the present is the best gift to self!

Haiku – Future & Hope!

In response to Ronovanwrites haiku challenge # 228, to use the prompt words Future & Hope!

This time I have tried to provide a stark perspective to the two prompt words.

nature-845849_960_720 1

Earth dies a slow death

blinded by man’s greed, she chokes

hope for future, bleak!

world-3258866_960_720

Few spirited souls

champion the cause for clean earth

the future has hope!

The Past, Present & Future!

Recently I was watching a rerun of the Bollywood film “Dear Zindagi” on television. A beautiful movie where the protagonist is overwhelmed by an incident of her childhood, which reflects on her present life relationships.  Her personal life seems to be in doldrums. A chance meeting with a Psychologist, helps her resolve her problems giving her the confidence to view life with a beautiful perspective. Definitely, a movie many can relate to, worth a watch!

There is one line in the movie which the therapist uses during one of the sessions. “Don’t let the past blackmail your present to ruin a beautiful future”.  Such a profound statement, isn’t it?

Life can throw quite a few unpleasant challenges at us. Many, we shrug off, some teach us a lesson, while a few hurt us, blemishing our personality to a great extent. At times, we reel under its burden, unable to shrug it off. This manifestation definitely needs to be addressed and set right, else, it could eclipse our future too!

 

The indelible scar of the past

meanders in the mind’s crevices

whispers secret messages

forays uninvited into dreams

entraps the present

sings haunting lines in hushed tones,

emerges from obscurity

to cast a gloomy shadow

on the future.

Untangle the web of antiquity

steer life on course

before,

the hollow memories of yore

pushes the soul into

an abyss of no return!

The recurring dreams of the horses running berserk tormented Amanda.

Staring at the same picture in the papers along with a news item a few days later, sent jitters down her spine.

She recalled the gypsy woman’s prophecy at the carnival, “Visions of the future will haunt you”!

Twin haikus!

In response to Ronovanwrites weekly haiku challenge #213 to use the prompt words TIME & MOVEMENT
