Happiness- Grab it!




Smiley Flower Happy!

i try to hold it-
the desperation of an ant
winding its way up the path
carrying the weight of day's hours;
survival is tiresome
but, the dawn seeps through a crack
everyday, every morning
to give us the strength  
so that new avenues are born
...journey's end brings new beginnings
walk a mile and touch the sun rays
Happiness and joy will follow....
enjoy the moment and live the life!
Happiness is yellow, crisp and warm
---  it instills new strength and vigor.
every creature- intelligent or not
wades through the burnishes 
     ....of the harsh sun
when the sun whirls onto your windowpane
open your eyes...
sipping the first cup of tea,
turn the knobs of the radio
tune in to hear a music-
singing a morning hymn...
Enjoy the luminous and pure break
-a lulled time, half-conscious, dream-like
with feathers of gold

We all start our day at some point. And we all seem to start it differently. Some of us hop online to check social media, others dive in to email, still others eat breakfast, exercise, or pack lunches for the kids. There’re a million different ways a morning could go.
For many of us, early morning is also a time of the day we can be alone, without demands and distractions. For me, listening to music is the perfect morning practice that awakens the body, focus the mind…

  1. A refreshing time of day to be sure--better after the rest and dreams of sleep, but yellow as you say, and a break, a definite break in whatever is tiresome. Thank you, Panchali

  2. I like "Happiness is yellow, crisp, and warm! What a perfect visual this is. And, yes, when the sun whirls into one's window one should open one's eyes! One should NEVER hide from happiness. I liked reading about your morning ritual, Panchali!

    A simple operation to start the morning. But it goes a long way to sooth the heart.. Music is certainly mesmerizing! Great lines Panchali!

  21. Beautiful lines you have weaved Panchali. Mornings truly define how the days turns out and consciously embracing happiness during that time goes a long way.

  22. Wonderfully written. As you mentioned, we all start our day in different ways and starting the day by doing something that would make us happy would definitely give it a good start. But we should clearly know what makes us happy, that's the challenge here :-)
