Because (Weekly Photo Poem #6)

Because despair is an important emotion to work through.

Because finding purpose is important.

Because vulnerability and reality are inextricably intertwined.

Because strength flows most true when you accept all parts of yourself.

The Leap (Weekly Photo Poem #5)

What would you do if you had to take The Leap?

The STRANGER In The Mirror (Weekly Photo Poem #4)

That strange alchemy, you and a strip of reflective glass.

What does it say about you?

Are you someone you know, you recognize?

Or are you, a STRANGER?

Waiting For Revelation (Weekly Photo Poem #3)

There’s something about some nights, isn’t it? They seem to be imbued with the gift of revelation, with magic… almost…
What will the night REVEAL to you?

Why, I Wonder? (Weekly Photo-Poem)

We need to answer this fundamental question. We need to know the answer to ‘WHY?’

Sunday Photo Poem For You

It’s been so long since I’ve been here! But I’m back! (Again!)

How are you? What’s been happening? How’s life and blogging treating you? 

For you today, I have a Photo Poem! (Thought I’d give it a whirl! :))

And I hope to bring one such poem to you every week.

With poems old and new, profound and ephemeral, let’s see where we go…

So here’s the first one, it’s all about that indescribable thing — the moment:

The Glowing Moment

 

A Wedge of Wednesday Wisdom

Wisdom I’ve gained this day:

Your first responsibility is to try and be open and vulnerable to yourself. Admit any aspects of shame, fear, anger/anguish, etc. you are carrying around. Explore ‘weaknesses’, don’t hide from them. Connect to everything about your self. 

That’s when true, integrated strength, a sense of purpose and connectedness begin to emerge. You begin to ‘flow’ in the world again. 

Start exploring the interior landscape. The rewards are myriad!

Mist N Moon (By Radhika Mukherjee)

Starblood

starblood

Did you know that blood smells of rust?
That our starburst mangled bodies die to awaken?
That in all the liminal space of time—
Truths unfold in ontological puzzlement,
Amazed at their own impertinence?

For what is anything amid infinity?
And where’s the space for infinity in our small is?
The renderings of visions wild,
All these data streams of forever dreams—
Will we ever truly reconfigure?

There is a silent, screaming, streaming smile—
Unfolding.
There is a thunderous rapture building—
Just out of reach.
Walk into the whirlwind—

Ascend!

Our Particular Shadows is a collection of 7 pieces of micro-fiction, each bite-sized story more poetic than the next. It is the first book of the Shadow Stories and features various ‘selves’ in their quest for light amid their very own shadows.
