Don’t know how you do it..


It is nice yet astonishing on how you care and remember to bring, the little things I enjoy which I keep forgetting.. like the The sweet almonds for my empty jar, The peat moss for our windowsill plant, The ceased color for my dried palette, The hershey’s  for my late-noon cravings. The re-fills on my french perfume, The lost ribbon ... Read More »

How do I love thee? By Elizabeth Barrett Browning


How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. I love thee to the depth and breadth and height My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight For the ends of being and ideal grace. I love thee to the level of every day’s Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light. I love thee freely, as men strive ... Read More »

Coloured Toys By Rabindranath Tagore


When I bring to you colored toys, my child, I understand why there is such a play of colors on clouds, on water, and why flowers are painted in tints —-when I give colored toys to you, my child. When I sing to make you dance I truly know why there is music in leaves, and why waves send their ... Read More »

My Cup Has Overflowed

my cups

I’ve never made a fortune, and it’s probably too late now. But I don’t worry about that much, I’m happy anyhow And as I go along life’s way, I’m reaping better than I sowed. I’m drinking from my saucer, Cause my cup has overflowed. Haven’t got a lot of riches, and sometimes the going’s tough But I’ve got loving ones ... Read More »

Dreams By Langston Hughes


Hold fast to dreams For if dreams die Life is a broken-winged bird That cannot fly. Hold fast to dreams For when dreams go Life is a barren field Frozen with snow. My Thoughts: An invaluable truth explained so robustly in few lines! “Life is a broken- winged bird” is what I think is one of the most perfect metaphors ... Read More »

The Arrow and the Song By Henry Wadsworth Longfellow


I shot an arrow into the air, It fell to earth, I knew not where; For, so swiftly it flew, the sight Could not follow it in its flight. I breathed a song into the air, It fell to earth, I knew not where; For who has sight so keen and strong, That it can follow the flight of song? ... Read More »

I walked the dawn to kiss the rays…

Walk the dawn to kiss the rays

Many gravels got grounded coarsely under my barefoot. Though there was silence at this serene time,  if listened warily, Even this sunken silence could be musical. To my wonder, I inhaled the air consciously, As it served by breath with something unique…  It was moist, earthly and refreshingly cool. Then the swelling sun arose so prominently, I surrendered my sleep ... Read More »

Phenomenal Woman By Maya Angelou


Pretty women wonder where my secret lies. I’m not cute or built to suit a fashion model’s size But when I start to tell them, They think I’m telling lies. I say, It’s in the reach of my arms The span of my hips, The stride of my step, The curl of my lips. I’m a woman Phenomenally. Phenomenal woman, ... Read More »

If I Can Stop By Emily Dickinson


If I can stop one heart from breaking, I shall not live in vain; If I can ease one life the aching, Or cool one pain, Or help one fainting robin Unto his nest again, I shall not live in vain. My Thoughts: This is a short thought-provoking poem that helps us to unfold the true essence of humanity . ... Read More »

Barter By Sara Teasdale


Life has loveliness to sell, All beautiful and splendid things, Blue waves whitened on a cliff, Soaring fire that sways and sings, And children’s faces looking up Holding wonder like a cup. Life has loveliness to sell, Music like a curve of gold, Scent of pine trees in the rain, Eyes that love you, arms that hold, And for your ... Read More »
