An ode to the Ordinary!

Doodle by my daughter

The cover of my book depicts an essence of commonality

 it pens reflection of  my gratitude, to the many silent doers

 highlighting their sensitivity towards a humane life.

Ordinary lives of people, making an extraordinary difference!

Unlocking their repertoire of goodness

they leave a trail of kindness,

 soothe another’s pain, feed a hungry mouth

they gift a moment of lift, to the lesser fortunate.

We don’t need heroes in capes, we find many among us

who choose to make a difference, in their own small way.

Their selfless service, serves a sliver of humanity

in today’s disintegrating values of the world.

An ode to the ordinary, making an extraordinary difference!!

Through my eyes…

Corona and its impact grips the world

 media spews fear in the minds of people

blowing things out of proportion.

Amidst all the negative pandemonium

they fail to highlight the rays of hope

emanating from kind souls

who reach out a helping hand,

infuse positive endurance.

I have realised, to see the world

through the people that surround me,

not through the blare of the breaking news.
