Risen!

Fire 2aa

She said,
You know,
I know about suffering,
Trials and tribulations.

But then,
Once I fell down,
I was still pushed
Down, down and
Down again
To the very end.

Almost as if
I was crucified!

The voice said
Yes they did.
But,
You will rise again.

And,
She did!

A Mother’s Grief!

Mother 1aa

Ripped apart
From her children.

Over and over again
Through the years.

The mother cries
Her broken heart bleeds.

Her wailing echoes
Through the universe.

Thunder rolls in
With lightening skies.

Rains pour down
With lashing storms.

The universe wails with
The weeping mother!

– Deepa Nilamani –

As You Sleep!

Beautiful 10

As you sleep
In quiet slumber
May you receive
the,
Blessings sent your way!

Lulling your mind
Into a peaceful rest,
and
Filing it with,
Beautiful dreams!

To,
Awaken you
Refreshed.
for,
New aspirations.

To a
New day,
A new beginning.

With new hopes
and,
Full of Joy!

You Are Enough !

Double Rainbow, Washington Gulch trailhead, near the town of Gothic, near Crested Butte, Colorado USA

My child,
You are enough
Don’t you Know ?

So many care
But,
You are unaware !

Life is such
We have tests

The closer to God
The harder the tests !

Over and over again
I tell unto you !

But you forget
Leaving me in despair

You are born
With a gift
To colour this
Drab world

Do not forget
The whole world
Needs you !

Darkness and Light !

Light 3

Looking at Life
We observe
Some are good and
Some are mean.

Some are honest
Some are not
Some who are rude
Some polite to us !

Kind hearts
Compete
With those
Hard hearted !

Some who see
The world
Upside down
Lament

Oh
The world is cruel and
Man is mean !

But always
there is
Two sides

Sadness shows
What Happiness is !

The sun comes out
To show
The night !

We need the darkness
To know
The Light !

A Silent Prayer !

Pray 5a

She sits in silence,
Praying into the night.
To each and
Everyone around.

Family and friends.
Strangers alike.
She wishes them well,
With all her might.

No one hears.
No one knows.
No one answers,
Back to her !

Her voice,
Reaches up.
To the,
Heavens above.

Where,
God is looking
Down upon her.

He hears
He knows
He answers,
Back to her.

And,
That is all
She ever wants !
