November Rain

Bleached skies, blistered window panes
Dutiful warriors fighting the rain
armed with the spokes and black arch.
Incessant rains, incessant deaths.
Bleeding roads--bleeding green instead of red.
Helpless trees: do you ever repent
the death of a thousand leaves?
'cos you bring the rain
but the rains betray you...

You are too good...

I am inside a moving train
that wont let me
hear, feel, or smell you

You are far away
blessing everyone with flourish

blooming the blushing pink to red

replenishing the reservoirs

reciprocating your love
to the tree-tops and the grass roots

waking the slumbering leaflets
with your gentle pats and taps

letting the satin clouds sweep and kiss
its lady love at the top of the mountains

you are too good,
despite the streaks of rashes
that you create on my window panes...

Theory of relativity

Painstaking self-accomplishments made in the past five years looks far too easier and quicker than the goals that I plan to achieve between now and the end of the fifth year from now.

time off thoughts...

feet's feel of a dry restroom floor

crows that imitate the celebration
of a footballer's goal

work-life in fast lane and
life in safe mode

parentish body-language of an offspring

coherent flow of thoughts

retentivity of thoughts till you find a pen

delicious breakfast of dinner left-overs

self-indulgences of a martinet

an unintrusive stranger in a journey

Buddha

Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.

- Buddha

Some Thoughts

A wonderful painting is the result of the feeling in your fingers. If you have the feeling of the thickness of the ink in your brush, the painting is already there before you paint. When you dip your brush into the ink you already know the result of your drawing, or else you cannot paint. So before you do something, "being" is there, the result is there. Even though you look as if you were sitting quietly, all your activity, past and present, is included, and the result of your sitting is also already there.
~ D.T. Suzuki

I must learn to love the fool in me - the one who feels too much, talks too much, takes too many chances, wins sometimes and loses often, lacks self-control, loves and hates, hurts and gets hurt, promises and breaks promises, laughs and cries. It alone protects me against that utterly self-controlled, masterful tyrant who I also harbor and who would rob me of human aliveness, humility, and dignity but for my fool.
~ Theodore I. Rubin

My Current State of Mind...

Happiness does not come from doing easy work but from the afterglow of satisfaction that comes after the achievement of a difficult task that demanded our best.

~ Theodore Isaac Rubin quotes (American Writer and psychiatrist b.1923)

Your imperfections...

The maverick tooth that did not align with the others
The marginal squint that shows up on your portraits
The stubborn dimple that refuses to smile
The wanderer in you who meanders
The temper that stuns a tsunami
The mind that thinks
The tongue that stings

Eureka!

The sky thinks a lot on a cloudy day!

I am You

I tend to act the same good way I heard someone say about me
like how I try to be the replica of the portrait
in which others considered me to be handsome.
