Wonders of Nature !

Bird 2a

Sometimes I just,
Sit by myself.
Not doing anything but,
Just spending my time.

Gazing up at,
The sky and the clouds.
The birds flying by,
Even aeroplanes !

In the night,
The dark blue sky,
The bright yellow moon,
And the shinning stars !

The beauty of nature.
For us to,
Enjoy.

Bring peace,
To the mind,
And,
Joy to the heart.

Do you know,
How fortunate we are ?

As all these
Wonders are,
Blessings from above !

For us to enjoy,
To be happy
In our lives.

To bring peace,
And
Joy to the world !

Gifted Hands !

Keys 1

Gliding smoothly
Along the keyboard
Keys come alive
From those
Gifted hands !

The melodies
So wondrous,
That reach up
To the skies,
And heavens above !

For the Fairies
Elves and,
The angels
To dance.

T’is said that,
Music is the
Voice of
The soul !

So your soul
Reach up,
To the skies.

To travel
Far and wide,
Across the seas.

To other lands,
Far and near.
For many a soul,
To sing and dance,
And clap their hands !

Fear not child as,
God given gifts,
Are to be cherished.

Not to be
Played around,
Or cast aside.

As in the end
Ti’s not you,
But they
Who will
Bow down !

Thoughts !

Holland 5

Endless thoughts
In my mind
Running fast
Like a fast
Moving train !

The past
Sweeps away
And the
Future is born.

I want to
Move on
Just like,
The train.

As time too,
Is running,
Like the train.

Some of the
Minds are
Not alert.
Not aware,
Of another’s thoughts !

Each one
Runs their own race.

Some are fast
And
Some are slow !

We each
Are born free souls
To run our race
In our own times.

Why do they not
Understand this ?

~ Deepa Nilamani ~

Empty Words !

Empty 1a

I have no time
For
Empty words
or
Useless gossip.

Putting down others
Or
Dragging the past.

Talking behind
The
Back of others !

I spend my time,
Doing my work.

In,
My own little world
To upgrade myself.
To keep me going
With no harm
To others.

If I do no harm
To no one
Even you,

Why ? Why ?
Do you Not
Let me be ?

All you wanted
Was given to you.
I was all good,
Until you took !

Now,
What do you still,
Want from me ?
Flesh and bones
That is left of me ?

No sense of
Good or bad.
Simply
No clue
What purity is.

Or else,
You would
Never have,
Tresspassed
My, sacred space !

Robbed my things,
To confuse me ?

Consequences
There will be !

~ Deepa Nilamani ~

A Gift !

Healing Hands 1

For all the
Long hours
Of praying.

For all
What I have done
Given and shared.

For all the
Sacrifices
I have made.

For all the
Injustice and cruelty
I have tolerated.

For all the
Ingratitude
I have borne in silence.

You have heard and
Seen me !

I, do not
See you !
But you are there
Watching me !

What do I say ?
How do I thank ?

A long awaited
Dream
Coming through !

I have to
Be patient
This I know.

As there is much
Learning to do.

At times of setbacks and
Let downs in life.
You have come
Giving me strength.

I need to always
Keep this in mind
That Almighty God,
Is taking care of me !

Hands That Help !

swami-2

With Extreme Gratitude to, Shri Sathya Sai Baba !

Some may think that,
He is false,
Are mistaken,
Ever more.

We are,
Just mortals,
Down below.

Who are we ?
To judge,
The powers above !!!

He watches you,
Through,
Day and Night.

Whispers child,
That’s not right !

If I have,
No time to pray,

Child,
Holier are,
The hands that help.

I ask not for,
Fancy things.
Those that,
We leave behind.

Guidance,
Every step of the way,
All I ask you,
Everyday.

Challenges came,
One by one.
Sometimes,
I would fall and cry !

Silently,
He watched over me
Tossing and turning,
In the stormy sea.

Tests and trials,
Hard work it was.
Sometimes I thought,
I would fall down.

When it was hard,
I cried out,
Swami this is,
Too much for me !

When is it,
Going to end,
Tell me !

Its always,
The darkest,
Just before dawn.

True to the words,
Morning was born.

Bright as ever,
The sun came up,
Chasing,
The darkness,
Away from the light.

A new day,
A new life,
To Begin again.

Dear Swami,
With Gratitude and,
Thankfulness,
I bow down to you !

~ Deepa Nilamani ~

A Blessing !

aatha-5-2

Sometimes,
So much is,
robbed from us.

Denied,
Suppressed and
Controlled.

That,
We become lost,
Not knowing,
What to do,
Where to go !

But then,
Life can change,
Just overnight.

Just like the,
Seasons of,
Mother earth.

Just like,
Rain,
Ending the drought.
Bringing back,
Mother earth to life.

Human life too,
Bounces back,
As we are,
Part of mother earth.

Life works in,
Mysterious ways,
Suddenly things,
Come back to you.

At a time and ways,
You never thought,
Even more than,
You ever dreamt !!!

Precious and priceless,
Gifts so rare,
In the world,
None can compare.

Never to be,
Held back,
In selfish deeds.
Never to be,
Taken away from you.

But,
To share with,
Others in need.
To mend and,
Heal their broken hearts.

To lift the fallen,
To their feet.
To light their paths,
In every way.

And then,
Leave,
As graciously,
As you came !!!
