The Porpoise’s Quandary

The porpoise raised it snoot
from the cerulean water
and stared at the mighty schooner,
The ship was bellowing its horn
and fuming dark thick smokes
not remorseful a bit,
as it dirtied the azure draped skies
and the porpoise wondered,
who invited this unruly guest
to rattle the tranquility
and muddy my sight

Drop Those Guards

Drop those guards
make those egos disappear
the sly you pretend to carry in your eyes
let such pretentious false representation go by

And as you will clean
the cobweb ridden vision
you will see an azure
pristine clear skies
waiting for you
beaming with brilliance
a welcome smile
and it will take you in its fold
showing you how beautiful is this world

Be That Craziest Person

Have you ever tried taking a cold shower in the middle of extreme winter or have run in the midst of a summer when the temperature is well above 100 degrees Fahrenheit?

When is the last time you played with the kids, not like an adult coaching them but like being one of them?

Did you ever sing under the shower, screaming like a rock star or maybe dared to record your voice and played it in the car for everyone to listen.

When your kids are busy with their screens, have you tried telling them stories about your mischievous past, cracking them up in such a way that they forget about their ostensible video games?

How often you lie on your bed gazing the ceiling pretending to be a superhuman solving the world’s most difficult problem.

Have you tried living your life in the most unconventional, bizarre and unpredictable way? And if you have not, when are you going to? Life is too short to be taken seriously. Be that craziest fun loving happy person that you have ever known in your lifetime.

Enjoy The Thing Called Life

Often, I have seen people flounder when the plan they have nurtured for life fails. Make a plan to organize your life not to fluster your mind. After all, there will be no fun if life executes to a textbook plan.
Follow your heart,
organize your mind,
count your blessings,
rejoices your wins,
embrace your defeats,
and enjoy the thing called life.
