Poetry is art

”Love – not simply a noun, but a verb craving to be felt.”

There’s a time for being ahead. A time for being at peace. There’s a time for being in motion. A time for being at rest. There’s a time for being vigorous. A time for being exhausted. To everything there’s a season. There’s a time for every purpose under the sun. 

The words above got stuck with me as I listened to them the other day.

No storm can last forever. Not even nature can create a storm that lasts forever. Hidden within every struggle is victory. Within every failure lies an opportunity. Hidden within yourself is everything you’ll ever need; power, love, compassion, joy, success and abundance. Every battle, and every difficulty molds you into a stronger human. As long as you know that you’re on the right path you’ll eventually end up where you want to go. There is and there was nothing like you, and there shall be nothing like you. Therefore, never seek to compare yourself with others. Nonetheless, let yourself be inspired by the people around you.

Realize that you don’t have any real control over how things will turn out. And isn’t that the beauty of life? To finally let go of the things beyond our control. Self-awareness is one of the most important elements when it comes to self-realization as it taps into the intuition and instinct. Trust the voice within; trust that you have all the answers you’re seeking. There are times when we’re so fully engaged in things happening in the outside world that we simply forget to connect with the vast world within. Rest assured; the more you listen to and trust your own unique voice things will start flowing more effortlessly, regardless of how chaotic life may seem.

”A journey of a thousand miles begins with one first step.”

– Lao Tzu

What better time then now to focus on how to enjoy life more fully, and bring what you desire to the world. What are you longing for? Now is the perfect time to start. Not tomorrow. Not next week or month. Now. A seed grows into a tree not in a wink of an eye, but with patience and humility over a period of time. A peaceful and calm mind is a powerful source of energy. Breathe new life into your being if that’s what you need. Listen to your body; what does it ask for? Rest? Action? Compassion? Excitement? Be still, and go within.

Advice for today (or any day for that matter); spend time in nature. Be playful, dance with her. Trust her. Walk barefoot if possible. Touch the grass, feel the ground underneath. Talk to the stars, laugh at the moon. Let the soft raindrops wash your troubles away. Embrace mother nature as she protects every step you take.

Take my hand,
inhale my breath,
we won’t die,
as long as we don’t fall
in love.

 

 

i see you in sunsets

in the light of
the Moon
in ocean waves
crashing ashore
in the purest snowfall
embracing the dark
in random smiles
i hear your laugh
in the simplest of things
where you always are

 

 

 

And if you think
his November rain
is too heavy,
you don’t deserve
his blossoming trees
early April.
He’s a once in a life time
season,
paving the way for
the winter,
and eventually
the spring.
This cycle of life,
cycle of you,
beautifully entwined,
while moving towards
the summer,
perfectly aligned.

– late night conversations with the Moon

 

 

Brief nanoseconds

What if we were just meant to
Look into each other’s eyes
For a brief second.
What if we were just meant to
Drown in that moment,
Just so we could learn how to swim.
What if we were just meant to
Wake each other up.
What if we were just meant to
Experience brief, flying moments.
Nanoseconds never felt before.
What if we are not meant to meet again.
What if I carry you within my heart.
What if you wouldn’t mind,
More of these brief nanoseconds.

 

 

You say my breath
Calms down
When I’m next to thee,
I say your eyes
Speak loudly
When they lay on me.
Not each others,
Still your breath
Pounds faster
When you’re next to me,
As my eyes tranquil
When they lay on thee.

 

when you least expect it,
come what may.
when you least deserve it,
or so you say.
it makes you question
all you’ve experienced
thus far,
everything from
life-on-earth
to your
inner-north-star.

 

 

Don’t promise me
Forever
Promise me
This moment
One sunrise
At a time
