An Armour Of Courage

Title – An armour of courage
Name – Rupali Gore Lale

After being bound by shackles of low self worth ,
the lady was saturated with negativity .
Somewhere , the self respect within her retaliated .

The woman set herself free and ran in glee ,
she explored new lands and new horizons ,
she wore wings of wishes an armour of courage,
took flight in a world of opportunities ,
the mademoiselle mustered perseverance ,
she took the stance of confidence .
She failed at times , even faced her fears .

With a leonine bravery , the queen of her life
took charge and won the war of success
in the eventful world…

An Armour Of Courage

O Red bird, o my Santa bird

Title – O Red bird , O my Santa bird

O Red bird , O Red bird ,
Please fly to safer skies
And bring some blessings for us ,
An invisible virus has brought a lockdown ,

O my Santa bird , O my Santa bird ,
You are dressed in red , just like Santa Claus ,
Please be our Santa Claus and
fetch some gifts for us ,
but this time , please gift us
better immunity , strength
and remedy from the Covid virus ….
So that we can resume our routine ,
Out of our home’s radius ….

O Red bird , O my Santa bird ,
Please fly to safer skies
and bring some blessings for us ….

Books – an acrostic poem

Today is the ‘ World book day ‘ . On the occasion of this beautiful day , an acrostic poem written by me . 

Title – Books 

Words are magically woven into stories , essays , poems and much more ,

Occasionally , there are ruthless words , often inspiring words ,

Reading can take a reader in an era , a past or even in future ,

Like a time machine , how adventurous are the sci-fi s , fantasies and fairytales !

Daring and inspiring readers to do something worthwhile with their life .

Bringing hidden talents of the knowledge seeker to the surface ,

Offering different outlooks and opinions , about many topics , 

Oratory skills are developed during book reading ,

Kindling an aim to explore . 

Dreams and diaries ,

Analyzing varied situations ,

Yearning to learn and read more and more.

Without readers , books and writers cannot grow , in terms of creativity . 

So , even if you are someone thinking of gravity , intensity , brevity or eternity , continue to support books , love and read books – anywhere you get a chance to read – in a bus or by brooks ! 

Happy World Book Day !

Love of my life

The ballroom is aglow ,

why , oh dear , will I feel low ,

when you are with me ?

My heart dances with glee ,

it is your magic , that I see ,

brightening the room .

We are revolving ,

we are evolving ,

in this journey of romance .

Oh dear , am I in a trance ?

Thankfully , I can hold your hands and dance dreaming of our future , together …

Come joy , come sorrow ,either today or tomorrow,

we will be there for each other ,

we are made for each other !

Love of my life

Falooda

Food is a necessity , but certain foods do not take time to be a temptation , an indulgence . Desserts are a great extension of a meal . They represent a human need to make space for luxury and not feel guilty about it ! To beat the Tropical heat – kulfi , gulkand , rabdi , Basundi and Falooda are great options . Falooda is my personal favourite . I follow the recipe of my mother , for making Falooda at home . Falooda is a beautiful layered drink . Layers of soaked Sabja seeds , soaked vermicelli , milk , rose syrup and Vanilla ice-cream , in a long glass ! A visual , sensory delight ! The red rose syrup , when blended with white milk and vanilla ice-cream , gradually turns a pleasant baby pink ! A culinary composition awaiting to be eaten … Eating each spoon is a divine bliss !Instead of vanilla ice-cream , malai kulfi also can be used . Falooda is an Indian dessert . It traces its origins to Iran . In Persian culture , this dish is called ‘ Faloodeh ‘ .

My Elfchen for Pink , inspired by Falooda. Hues. sweet , soft spreading rosy vibes enhancing a Falooda glass Pink

Shining strings of music

Shining strings of a sunlight soaked guitar , play music , radiating solar power ,

Energizing strings of sitar spread positivity among listeners

Music is a soulful connection ,
irrespective of any musical combination
Music spreads waves of sheer joy ,
refreshing minds , free of any ploy !

Music is like a child ‘ s innocence ,
Suffusing an aroma of spiritual incense !

Music laments and regrets lost moments and
perishable things ,
while , it also celebrates life

Shining strings of music

A colorless world

If every colour vanished from this world….

What would remain is a colorless world,

The hueless world…..

The shadeless Earth …..

The ‘ No chrome ‘ mirth…..

All the earthlings would look like ‘ Colorless architectural model blocks ‘ ,with sculpted features,bodies and contours…..

The vision would be more strained.

The ‘ touch and feel ‘ would be more dominant …..

The ‘ audible  test ‘ would be more prominent,

Life would be a bland dish with :

Missing greens of leafy greens,

Missing browns of brown bread,

Missing reds of red cherries….

A painter would miss his colour palette , he would be sketching more and more ,sans Les coleurs…. Et Les fleurs ? Flowers would be chunky,aromatic masses…

Chemistry’s crush with colours and Laboratory tests would be put to rest .. ..

Some will feel Bubbles and Balloons filled with Air,

Some will feel like steams and streams of Water,

Fire’s ire will be tough to recognize …

A writer will write on a colorless paper, with a colorless ink ….. Who can read except, maybe, micro-organisms- the merry microbes!

Engraving, embossing, etching will be fetching many takers, doers and customers!

A colorless world

Life- an assortment of offerings

The days were rising and setting speedily, the demands were increasing greedily….

Divinity was overloaded with never ending desires , demands and wishes!

The space was a storehouse of infinite celestial bodies,

The human mind was a reservoir of infinite possibilities!

Nature harbors organisms of varieties-

Some parasites , some spectacular sites!

The mind has a place for thoughts of multitude,

Some thoughts are toxic and desperate little parasites,they erode the productive quality of the mind!

Some thoughts are nectarine and soothing ,noble plans!

Salute to Life and her assortment of offerings!

Krishna, Music and Nature

I feel joyous ,when I listen to music.

The musical journey of listening has some mystic!

The flute sends waves of fleeting peacock feathers , flying and mystifying further ‘ the divinity of Shri Krishna ‘….

The deer and the peacock look endearingly at the musician.

The celestial heavens shower stardust on the meditative music.

The woods look wonderful and woo her wild creatures with her emerald , green charms, woody world and stoic soil. There is always some musical note , being played ,by some animated animal or the other….

The ravishing Rivers , bouncy waterfalls, serene streams, binding brooks flow and keep the life moving….

The pondering , but peaceful ponds ,the laid back lakes , surrounded by blushing ,lush green bushes await the arrival of rains and enjoying the song of the reigning rains!

I see Shri Krishna , smiling affectionately ,in the aesthetic arts of Nature!
