Equilibrium(Sunday’s Haiku)

Stack of boulders

bravely stood ere the sky

through a magic touch

Life can be compared to that stack of boulders. We may have dissimilar ways of piling things up in our lives. Naturally, we have different strategies, priorities and dreams. However, we should always remember that our thoughts, words and actions should always be in great harmony whatever happens. Or else, the ramparts we’ve once made will fall and eventually turn into ashes. Be sure you are living the life of your dreams. Just don’t let your dreams decay.

“Happiness is when what you think, what you say and what you do are in harmony” Mahatma Gandhi

What Shall I Write?

What Shall I Write?

(Sonnet IV)

What shall I write in this world full of words?

This question often muddles my cognizance.

Long hours of discerning dissuades my moods.

So, whisper me your thoughts even in a trance.

Shall I write about the splendor of nature-

Its fecund landscape and verdant vegetation?

The lakes, rivers, and seas- unsoiled and pure!

Or marvel in the ethereal beauty of His creation?

Shall I write about the love story that I once had-

From the time it blossomed until it withered?

Perhaps no one can subtly narrate it even a bard

For it once made me scarred and fragmented.

 Shall I write over and over again?

Or let those thoughts crumble in pain?

I was one of THEM!

Hello everyone! It’s been a while since I penned something here. I miss all of you so much! Sending my kisses to everyone!

Well, these days have been very noxious to me! There were copious things to do and think about. But surely, those things couldn’t stifle my voice. So, here I am.

Yesterday, I was flabbergasted once again to read another nomination from Gail, my sister and friend here in WordPress. I loved how she encouraged me with her kind words, and how she’s been lifting my crumbling spirit whenever I needed it. She is indeed AWESOME!

How infinite His love is.  He sees how and when to cheer us up. All glory to you, Oh Lord!

I was one of THEM!

I mistrusted myself many times. More often than not, I used to think that I am a worthless being-

That I’m not good enough.

That nobody will bother to listen.

That I am just a freak hoping for someone or something.

That I can’t be one of them-happy and contented.

But, I was wrong! Very wrong!

I have realized that no one can make me feel inferior but myself. I have allowed that inferiority entered, and it infected my whole system. It was like a dreadful malady that spread all over my mind and body.

I was grateful then that I’d waken from that curse before it completely took me.

It’s not what they think. It’s what we think of ourselves.

It’s not what they say. It’s what we say in silence.

It’s not what they do. It’s what we do in their absence.

It’s not about them.

It’s about you.

 It’s about our God.

Have a lovely day, everyone!

God bless you!

God loves you!

What is your Story?

Each of us has a story to tell.

My story is not over yet.

Everything that transpired in the past

has led me to where I am today.

 

I am not afraid of my scars.

Each and every scar has a story,

and the fact that the lesions healed

 reminds me that things get well in time.

 

I write my own story.

I can change the way my story goes.

I can introduce new chapters every day.

I can twist its plot to make it interesting.

 

I appreciate those who come along,

but I am entrusted to myself.

I am capable of building my dreams

and achieving peace and happiness.

 

I am a writer-

a writer of my own destiny

where I am my own hero.

Thoughtful Thursday:Lord, Teach us to be Humble

Let us not be afraid to be humble,small

 and helpless to prove our love for God.

The cup of water you give the sick,

the way you lift a dying man,

the way you feed a baby,

the way you teach a dull child,

the way you give medicine to a sufferer of leprosy,

the joy with which you smile at your own at home

-all this is God’s love in the world today.

-Mother Teresa-

May we all find joy in humility!

-Lebana-

Time is Love

“Time is very slow for those who wait

Very fast for those who are scared

Very long for those who lament

Very short for those who celebrate

But for those who love, time is eternal”

-Shakespeare-

 

Time is love, my dear!

The greatest gift  you can give

to the one you love.

It might be terribly short.

Seize the moment while it’s yours!

Lebana’s Tanka

 

May all your days be filled with love!

 

Love,

Lebana
