A poem i guess may be simple , stupid and weird but it is just what i felt doing !
RUNAWAY

I want to run away from the world so wide,
I want to run away to the wildness alive,
I want to runaway from the worries alike
I want to runaway just far and wide.
It is not that I fear to fight back,
It is not that I detest to stand up,
Nor is it that I don’t like to live
Still I want to runaway …
Runaway just far and wide.

In to the world of natural life,
The splendid ocean and; the sprawling green fields,
The resplendent sky, with the eagles so high.

I want to sleep in the oceans’ bed,
Just like the pearl cosy in its shell,
I wish to race with the dolphins under,
Mermaids as friends and the bubbles for air.

I want to runaway to the deep green mysteries,
The forests nestling the rare big beasts.
I want to befriend the elephant by the river
Blindly follow a herd of lovely deer,
To feel the hares so fluffy and fair.

My hunger drained with the dry figs and berries,
The silvern stream to quench my thirst.
I want to hang on the bark of the tree,
Play the see saw and the swing for free
Sing with the birdies nestling on top!
Sweet little squirrels to watch and smile.

The open skies and a big bear hug,
Just with the fireflies glowing around.
A good night’s sleep with the moon to guard,
The animal kingdom to watch me all night.
I wish to make huge snow man,
Follow the reindeer and watch the seals
How I could just runaway to the poles
And freeze up with the white soft snow!

I want to run away in to this vast blue sky
Like butterfly or a nightingale
A parakeet or a white eagle
All I want is to fly around.

I wish to feel the wind against my face,
Want to chew the milk white clouds
I just wish to kiss the moon...
Stay with the gulls hovering the waves
That first dew drops as soft as silk ,
feel against my skin with the cool breeze around.
Pitter patter falls the rain drops,
wetting the earth for a new lease of life.
The peacocks around merrily dance about
swaying to the rythm of the falling drops
the animals around just hide about -
to escape the lash of the silvery drops !

Lo! i wish i dance with joy ,
splashing around the puddles just like a child.

I wish to just runaway .

Away and away and far away I just want to run away!
Run away from the madding crowd..
Run away from the world of white lies,
World of miseries born for selfish goals.

Just to live one moment sinless, so nice;
swaying to the tune of the nature’s song of joy …
smiling till my dimples squeak so softly
Elated at living a day so nice .
a day just mine and only mine!

Runaway …
I want to runaway!

Day 57: Manjadikuru (The Little Red Seeds)

Do you guys know about Manjadikuru ? They are the little red seeds. For anyone who is from God's own country or is familiar with Kerala wouldn't have missed this. There is something special about holding them, playing with these seeds. Usually, most homes will have a small 'uruli' or a bowl filled with these beautiful and shiny red seeds. In most Krishna temples in Kerala, you will come across a small 'uruli' with Manjadikuru. People believe that it is lucky to take these seeds with both hands and just play with them when you visit a temple. Some even leave a couple of coins as they do this.  In Guruvayoor (my favorite place), you can see a big 'uruli' with manjadi. 

So, why and how did this become prevalent ? It goes back to a story from the past. Many years ago, there lived a poor lady in northern Kerala. She was an ardent devotee of Lord Guruvayoorappan (Krishna) and always wanted to visit Guruvayoor.  She could not afford to buy any offering (nived…

Day 307: Happy Chingam !

Today is Chingam 1 (to be read as onnu). It is the new month according to the lunisolar calendar. This month is also called as Avani and Shravana. So, why is this month special?  This month marks the beginning of the festival season back home and the it is fun to have small celebrations through the months until  mid- December. It is also the month of Onam (Harvest festival in Kerala).

The first festival we have this month is the 'sacred thread' changing ceremony for men/boys who wear that. This is followed by usually the birthday of little Krishna and then the elephant-head god, Ganesha. Then comes Onam followed by the beautiful month of Navaratri or Durga Pooja. So, the big set of festival season is here and here is a wish to all of you on Chingam 1. Wishing you all blessed and excellent months ahead. Have fun!

Day 315 : What's on your bucket list?

Bucket List. A term that has become popular much after the famous movie with the same title in 2007. The term would have probably taken after the euphemism 'kick the bucket', which was again popularized in the movie, 'It's a mad, mad, mad, mad world'. The 2007 movie was a massive hit and how would it be not? It had Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman in the lead. The term was meant to have a list of things you wish you can do before you leave this world.

It is like a goal list that can evolve as you grow and change perspectives in life. I used to have a wish list that worked as a to-do list mostly like a work list for short-term goals. However, off late, I have decided to make one and keep it as an ever evolving list.

The first one on my list as of now (that was from the past too) is to get my biggest degree in life. Hopefully I will tick that one off my list soon.

Do share your thoughts on your list and how do you plan on getting it all checked out.

Love,
M
