Incongruous Thoughts

My two pence about life, death and choices in life

The question is ‘What happens after death‘? Do we go anywhere beyond? Do we still have some sort of physical restrictions or do we keep roaming the vastness of space unawares to the living and we ourselves unmindful of all thoughts? Do we still manage to touch and feel? One thing is for sure; our lease with the physical form that we carry will end. And with it shall end a life time of cravings and desires; burdens and borrowings; sufferings and sorrow; happiness and love??

An Ode To The Unsung

What is true beauty? The one shown outward, or the one that comes from within?

I was walking by the side
Of a lovely pond
On a delightful spring day,
When I noticed a flower blooming.

I decided to wait and watch
As the petals showed me,
The unseen beauty; a treasure trove,
A pleasure well hidden!

I must admit that I was lost
Forever under nature’s power
A force so overwhelming on my solitude;
A bliss unknown – unfolded to me!

The Incomplete

Life is probably incomplete without (these) subtle meanings to mundane things!

That which is given
Purporting only to give
With no expectations
Will touch the soul
Much deeper than the same superior act
That is done for the own self
And with the intent of showing
Pity and sympathy!

That which is preached
Simply to preach
With no malice in words
Will emboss in the heart
Much stronger than words
Those teach the same fine things, with
An attempt to instill
Fear and contempt!

Peace – Lost and Found

Will there ever be true peace?

Man finds the perfect way to attain peace
And in a moment of generosity decided
To write it down for the future to see!

Another came and had a look at it and thought
‘These are words worth more than gold’
And shared it for more to see.

Then came another who felt he should probably
Publish his views on the great document.
And yet another felt he had found a flaw!

The Tower by the Sea

A tower by the sea; an icon in our life – forgotter; a comparison…

The tower stood lonely
Rocked by the sea;
The tower, told to be made of stone,
Was bent on guiding thee!

Years of struggle with the water
A forlorn sight it wore;
It was no great warrior
But a fighter nonetheless!

Waiting for her estranged kids
Guiding them all ashore;
The tower gleamed back into the darkness,
A noble crown dost she own!

When hopes are dashed amidst the rocks
With all hell breaking loose
The ocean turns out to be a deserting friend
Lo and behold – a faithful beam is seen!

Footprints

A lifetime enjoying all feelings that one can think of and finally what do we leave in the end?

Here we go,
Walking on the shores of life
Speeding all the way!

We walk the line,
Like ants following one another
Crawling all along!

The shore is long,
And the waves are strong;
Pulling and sucking us all.

The sand is a quagmire,
All mushy and squishy,
But nevertheless we trod along.
