Ode to Spring – A poem

Tulips with rosy faces in gardens blush

Their petals color the landscape like nature’s paintbrush.

Thundering Spring clouds,

herald the ancient call to till the rows

As farmers pray for ploughs

And for rain from heaven’s windows.

As if in response, sudden Spring showers,

water brooks and streams and flowers.

All nature stand in awe of one of the world’s greatest kindness –

The Earth awakening from self-imposed darkness.

Ah! Spring, your gifts are plenty:

Food to refresh the body,

Balconies of blooms for the soul’s delight,

And, your silent splendor

reminds us that,

at least once every year,

we receive the beauty that we Hope for.

Private Reflection – What is the meaning of “instant”?

“What … is instant? Nothing is instant. Instant rice takes five minutes, instant pudding an hour. I doubt that an instant of blinding pain feels particularly instantaneous.”

Weekend Meditation – The magical gift of letting go – A poem

The coming of Spring as you know –

Teaches many things:

such as the magical gift of letting go.

For, after all,

who among us sits at their front door,

steadfast in a heart longing full of Spring dreams

awaiting its glorious golden gleams,

beckons waning Winter to come back in?

“Be content with what you have;

rejoice in the way things are.

When you realize there is nothing lacking,

the whole world belongs to you.”

― Lao Tzu
