I enter dark streets engulfed by a fog of undefined feeling -deja vu strikes Have I been here before? Have I smoked a cheap brand exchanged small talk before driving away…. I guess not… but it is a life someone wanted me to lead someone I loved and lost… https://lifeafter50forwomen.com/2020/09/21/what-do-you-see-48-21-september20/
Brewing Thoughts into Words …..
Wild and untamed
Why won’t you obey
And why won’t you be summoned
You come often
But the moment is a mystery
And the hour, a surprise
A delinquent who delights
With those feelings you infuse
And the journeys you enthuse.
Take me now and do what you may.
Will you bring me romance
Spark the tidbits of pleasure in my mind
And sweeten the words caressing my page.
Or will it be adventure
An excitement so palpable
With words that tumble pell-mell
From the echelons of dreams
Why not get my heart racing!
Drag me through dark halls of horror
And shadows of the unknown
All the emotions you bring…
Love when I’m broken
Dread when I’m safe
A sprinkle of fantasy bliss
And the euphoria of sensual ecstasy
How I crave you when you’re here
And miss you when you’re gone

It has been years, but we are assigned the same co-teaching class again. Echoes of past trauma arise, and with them the familiar tension and gut cramping.
But I am not the same as I was, then. I can practice relational Tai Chi. I am water.
It’s time to flow.
take one breath, then another
and stay in the moment

It is a movie that keeps me glued. Maggie serves me lunch on the couch in front of the TV. Lucky to have a wife so understanding…. Suddenly, the movie stops, and a moderator is asking some questions related to the movie. The audience has to guess what will happen next, and type it out …
“Why should anyone want to shift these statues? They have been a major attraction for visitors to the museum, and pictures get splashed all across social media.” The Curator of the Museum was furious at unplanned moves. “Actually, Sir, we have shifted all the wax statues from the other side to another section….” The junior …

This is what NLP practitioners call Version 1 (what actually happened) and Version 2 (what/how we remember and propagate ahead) of an incident.
hindsight so clever, but
perhaps of little value
actual occurrence blurred
by foregone conclusions
seemingly without qualm
and grave consequences
may lead to one’s demise

I think of you, and poems sprout
A thought or couplets – all yours
I see you wherever I look
Are these thousands of forms – all yours?
Let us divide the garden here
Give me thorns, blossoms all yours
Everyone I see has a broken heart
Are they infatuated or victims – all yours?
How do I express, blame or complain?
Defence lines are tailored – all yours….
Translated from original Hindi piece here
फ़िर आया ख़याल तेरा, फिर निकले आशार नए
ये ख़याल तेरा है या आशार तेरे हैं
जिस सिम्त देखता हूँ, तू ही नज़र आता है
तू ही बतला क्या रूप हज़ार तेरे हैं
चलो आओ करें इस गुलिस्तां का बॅटवारा
रख लो तुम फूल सभी ख़ार मेरे हैं
हर शख़्स लगता है मुझे चोट खाया हुआ
इस शहर में क्या सब बीमार तेरे हैं
क्या करे कोई तुझसे शिकवा गिला अमित
अपनी सफाई में बहाने तैयार तेरे हैं
