Magpie Tales -#01/307

This is my very first attempt at poem writing after ages, i know it sucks but just thought of posting it any way since i wanted to try the Magpie Tales. So the objective of the blog is “This blog is dedicated to the enjoyment of poets and writers, for the purpose of honing their craft, sharing it with like-minded bloggers, and keeping their muses alive and well.” 

So the funda is simple, a picture is featured and you got to write a post using this image as an inspiration and here i am with my stupid crazy imagination !!!

Somehow the image is not being displayed due to some censor issue so you could click this link to see the featured picture, CLICK HERE . This is my first (#01) post of the many magpie tales(#307) and here goes my poem 🙂 🙂

Her angelic closed eyes
holding tons of surprise
Those dark long tresses of hers
as intoxicating as last nights glass of liquor
Her smooth soft curvy voluptuous body
as she tosses in the bed sending out radi
This woman i wana hold
with whom  my every breath unfolds
Waking up to her as she cuddles in my arms
moving my hand across the bed to snooze the alarm
Finding few more minutes before i could wave her goodbye
as my finger dipped in paint completes her kohld eyes!!!

P.S – This one seriously needs some review and feedback. I suck at poetry that too English

 

QUOTE CHALLENGE – DAY 3/3

Happy Sunday everyone!!! I am a day late to post my Day 3 challenge but i have proper reason for it and that being it was a Saturday yesterday 😀 and its meant to do either too many things or nothing at all. Am not telling which one did i do 😛

To end the 3 Day Quote Challenge nominated by my friend MADdy the theme i have chosen is someones teachings that really inspires me. You can see a big poster of his in my apartment a huge one, you can find his image as my desktop background, so much so that am pretty sure the next tattoo that i do would be definitely related to him and that is Gautama Buddha. 

Just his image brings in so much of peace and solitude within me which i can’t put in words. His life story has so much to teach us besides the enlightenment he showed to people during his sage days. Below are my favorite quotes by Buddha that really inspire me.

The rules are pretty simple and easy to follow:

# Post three consecutive days.
# You can pick one or three quotes per day.
# Challenge three different bloggers per day.

And my nominees for the final day are:

#1. Debra (Cultivating time is all about what you can make of the time you have in this world)

#2. Rochelle (you should not miss out this blog, a blog dedicated to some real bold views and posts)

#3. Noorain (if you are a foodie am sure you ll love this blog so head out to this yummy 😉 blog)

When Love Arrives – Did you know, will you know???

What is love? Did you know when love arrived, would you have known when love had arrived at first in your life, did you know when love left ?Most of us have our own version of love in our heart and head, which certainly changes if you have fallen in and out of love in your life. Today i don’t want to talk about love but would want to share something with you all that i was introduced by my close friend Vikas (during office hours 😛 ) and now i am addicted to it, that i listen to it everyday once.

 I came across this Spoken Poetry by Sarah Kay and Phil Kaye who have beautifully expressed love in their poem and in its spoken form.I sincerely request you all to listen to this, if you haven’t and would love to hear your thoughts and comments on it. 

So when Love Arrives, welcome love and make love comfortable and when Love Leaves, Appreciate and Respect it and make way for more Love!!! Love brings out the best and worst in you, love helps you grow as a better person every time Love Comes and every time Love Leaves!

P.S. I am sure few would have already watched this and have been following them, this is for the ones who didn’t know. After all blogs are supposed to share what you feel and know!Isn’t it???

Lyrics:

I knew exactly what love looked like
in seventh grade
.
Even though I hadn’t met love yet
if Love had wondered into my homeroom,
I would’ve recognized him at first glance.
Love wore a hemp necklace.

I would’ve recognized her at first glance.
Love wore a tight french braid.
Love played acoustic guitar,
and knew all my favorite Beatles songs.

Love wasn’t afraid to ride the bus with me.

And I knew,
I just must be searching the wrong classrooms;
just must be checking the wrong hallways.
She was there, I was sure of it.
If only I could find him.

But when Love finally showed up,
She had a bullcut.
He wore the same clothes every day for a week.
Love hated the bus.
Love didn’t know anything about the Beatles.

Instead,
Everytime I tried to kiss Love,
our teeth got in the way.
Love because the reason I lied to my parents.
I’m going to… Ben’s house
Love had terrible rhythm on the dance floor,
but made sure we never missed a slow song.

Love waited by the phone,
because she knew if her father picked up
it would be, (heavy breathing)
“Hello, hello… I guess they hang up.”

And Love grew…
Stretched like a trampoline.
Love changed.
Love disappeared
slowly, like baby teeth
losing parts of me I thought I needed.

Love vanished like an amateur magician,
everyone could see the trapdoor but me.
Like a flat tire,
there were other places I had planned on going

but my plans didn’t matter.

Love stayed away for years.
And when Love finally reappeared,
I barely recognized him.

Love smelled different now,
had darker eyes,
a broader back.
Love came with freckles I didn’t recognize,

new birthmarks,
a softer voice.
Now there were new sleeping patterns,
new favorite books.
Love had songs that reminded him of someone else;
songs Love didn’t like to listen to
so did I.

But we found a park bench that fit us perfectly.
We found jokes that make us laugh.
And now Love makes me fresh homemade chocolate cookies.
But Love will probably finish most of them for a midnight snack.

Love looks great in lingerie but still likes to wear her retainer.
Love is a terrible driver but a great navigator.
Love knows where she’s going,
it just might take her two hours longer than she planned.

Love is messier now;
not as simple.
Love uses the word ‘boobs’ in front of my parents.
Love chews too loudly.
Love leaves the cap off the toothpaste.
Love uses smiley messages in her text messages
And turns out,
Love shits.

But Love also cries.
And Love will tell you, “You are beautiful.”

And mean it.
Over and over again,
“You are beautiful.”
When you first wake up,
“You are beautiful.”
When you’ve just been crying,
“You are beautiful.”
When you don’t want to hear it,
“You are beautiful.”
When you don’t believe it,
“You are beautiful.”
When nobody else will tell you,
“You are beautiful.”
Love still thinks,
“You are beautiful.”

But love is not perfect,
and will sometimes forget,
when you need to hear it most,
“You are beautiful.”
Do not forget this.

Love is not who you are expecting.
Love is not what you can predict.

Maybe Love is in New York City,
already asleep.
You are in California, Australia,
wide awake.
Maybe Love is always in the wrong timezone.

Maybe Love is not ready for you.
Maybe you are not ready for Love.
Maybe Love just isn’t the marrying type.
Maybe the next time you see Love is twenty years after the divorce.
Love looks older now but just as beautiful as you remembered.

Maybe Love is only there for a month.
Maybe Love is there for every firework,
every birthday party,
every hospital visit.

Maybe Love stays.
Maybe Love can’t.
Maybe Love shouldn’t.

Love arrives exactly when Love is supposed to.
And Love leaves exactly when Love must.

When Love arrives,
say, “Welcome, make yourself comfortable.”
If Love leaves,
ask her to leave the door open behind her,
turn off the music,
listen to the quiet,

whisper, “Thank you for stopping by.”

Spread Love !!! Spread love through your writings, poems, views!!!  –Sneha(gal from the Islands)

Quotes that inspired me!!!

As per Google, the definition of Quote is pretty simple it says – repeat or copy out (words from a text or speech written or spoken by another person) . So simple right?? But aren’t these simple words by some random person leave a huge impact on our lives simply because it contains a wealth of wisdom in a single line.

Read my post on  – How do QUOTES help us???

And there are handful of such simple lines that have kept me going whenever i fell, lost track, lost hope, felt cheated, troubled and crippled in the head. These words changed me as a person, the way i think and even they way i feel for that matter.

I owe a lot to the people who have inspired millions of us from their life experiences, help us give words to how we feel .

—— Quotes that have inspired me and many like me am sure ——

2. “When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left and could say, I used everything you gave me.” – Erma Bombeck

3. “Even if you’re on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there.” – Will Rogers

4. “Self -sacrifice ? But it is precisely the self that cannot and must not be sacrificed” – Ayn Rand, The Fountainhead

5. “Never be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the ark. Professionals built the Titanic.” 

6. “Dance is a song of the body. Either of joy or pain” – Martha Graham

7. “Life is worth living when you realize that there are a few heart beats to be missed and a few kisses to be received” 

8. “Life is a pendulum between a smile and a tear” 

9.  “When you came in this world you were crying but the world rejoiced..do something that when you die world cries and you rejoice.” 

10. “Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see a shadow.” – Helen Keller

11. “It’s not about waiting for the storm to pass..it’s about screaming with the thunder, running with the lightning, and learning to dance in the rain”

Finally the  quote that keeps me going every single day is 

“SHE STOOD IN THE STORM , AND WHEN THE WIND DID NOT BLOW HER WAY, SHE ADJUSTED HER SAILS” – Elizabeth Edwards

Fears of love – rather fear of falling in love – Philophobia

Anisha Joshi – no better way to express that feeling when your knees go weak the second time, yet you don’t wanna risk falling down!!! I am sure many gals have been through this including me and the feeling you described is so perfect! Thanks a ton for giving words to our inhibitions and our fears. 🙂

Lets raise a toast to life

She doesn’t know what it is

She thinks of him at times

She wishes to be with someone like him

It is a new feeling, in a new way

She gets the jitters while talking to him

You can feel her heart running a marathon

You can see the shine in her eyes

You can see that smile in her lips

But, she is not sure

She is too scared to fall in love AGAIN

She is strong enough to fall in love for a second time

But, undoubtedly weak to let it go for a second time

Today, while she enjoys talking to someone special

She feels this has happened before

She feels the same

She feels the same fondness and appreciation

She feels the same likeness

She feels like dancing with the daffodils

She feels like singing

She feels the life

But, she also remembers how it all…

How do QUOTES help us???

“Alone we can do so little; Together we can do so much. – Helen Keller”

Well that’s exactly how i feel about QUOTES. I think we have that inspiration within us, a kind of instinct, a spark and each one of us has that spark of inspiration within us, quotes help us connect with that spark. 

These are tried and tested over the years, these have motivated people to follow their dreams ranging from self help, to be focused, to trust relationships and people in it, to be disciplined etc etc.  Its like you are walking down the dark tunnel and all of a sudden you see light at the end of it that makes you rejuvenated and confident once again to gather all your courage and to just move towards that light finally leading you to your GOAL. 

These are not just words some random people have said, but they are those moments lived, experienced some out of failures, some out of success some by merely being in that moment and from different walks of life.  As humans, we always prefer following patterns and so these quotes deeply impact us, we could totally relate to it and we end up learning from it.

And the best part about the QUOTES is – they are short, sweet and yet leave us thinking so much about it. These are like little reminders to boost our spirits and refocus our day.

So my next post following this are all those quotes which have inspired me, boosted my moral, helped me know my worth, imbibed in me simple words like discipline/trust/love/passion/focus cause without which life would have no meaning , so stay tuned.
