ಹೂವಿನ ಮನ..

ಹುಟ್ಟಿದ್ದು ನಿನ್ನೊಡಲಲ್ಲಿ, ಮರಳುವುದು ನಿನ್ನ ಮಡಿಲಿಗೆ, ಇರುವ ನಡುವಿನ ಜೀವನ ಅರಳಿ ನಗುವ ಹೂವಿನ ಮನ.. ಇರದುದರೆಡೆಗಿನ ತುಡಿತದ ಮೋಹವಿಲ್ಲ. ಮರೆತ ಹೃದಯಗಳಿಗೆ ನೆನಪಿಸುವ ಹಪಹಪಿಯಿಲ್ಲ.. ಮರೆತದಕ್ಕೆ ಶೋಕವಿಲ್ಲ. ನಾನೇ ಮೆರೆಯಬೇಕೆನ್ನುವ ಅಹಂಕಾರವಿಲ್ಲ , ಮತ್ಸರವಿಲ್ಲ, ಸೋತದ್ದಕ್ಕೆ ಹತಾಶೆಯಿಲ್ಲ ಹೊಸೆದು ಹಾಕಬೇಕೆಂಬ ಕ್ರೌರ್ಯವಿಲ್ಲ.. ಮನ್ನಣೆಗೆ ಮಣಿಯದ, ಎಲ್ಲವೂ ನಿನ್ನದೇ ದೇಣಿಗೆ ಎಂಬುದೊಂದು  ಆತ್ಮ ಸಮರ್ಪಣೆಯ ಭಾವ. ಇದಲ್ಲವೇ ಸುಂದರ, ಸ್ನಿಗ್ಧ,  ಸಾರ್ಥಕ್ಯ ಬದುಕು..  ಕಮಲ ಬೆಲಗೂರ್.

ಸಾಗಿರಲಿ ಕಾಯಕ, ಬದುಕು ಮುಗಿವ ತನಕ..

ಹೊತ್ತಿಹೆ ನೊಗವ, ಭಾರಕೆ ನಲುಗಿದೆ ದೇಹಮಿಡಿದಿದೆ ಮನವುನಿಡಿದಾದ ನಿಟ್ಟುಸಿರು.ಕ್ರಮಿಸಬೇಕಿಗಿದೆ ಇನ್ನೂ ಕಾಯಕದ ಹಾದಿ. ತಪ್ಪುವ ಹೆಜ್ಜೆಗೊಂದುಧಣಿಯ ಚಾಟಿಯ ಸ್ಮರಣಿಕೆ. ಕೊಟ್ಟಿಹೆನು ಕತ್ತನು, ನೊಗಕೆ,ಮುಂದಿದೆ ಬದುಕಿನಕಾಯಕದ ಹಾದಿಯು.ದಣಿಯದಿರಲಿ ದೇಹ,ಮನಸ್ಸು ,ತಪ್ಪದಿರಲಿ ಹೆಜ್ಜೆ,ಸವೆಯದಿರಲಿ ಹಾದಿ.. ಸಾಗಿರಲಿ ಕಾಯಕಬದುಕು ಮುಗಿವ ತನಕ.ದಣಿದು ಸೋತ ದಿನಜೀವನವು ಬಹು ಭಾರಬಲು ಘೋರ.. “ಜೀವನದ ಓಟದಲ್ಲಿ ಗೆಲ್ಲುವ ಎತ್ತು ಕೊಟ್ಟಿಗೆಯಲ್ಲಿ, ಸೋತ ಎತ್ತಿನ ಜೀವ ಕಟುಕನ ಕೈಯಲ್ಲಿ.” Stay tuned, Until life is over. I’m carrying the yoke,Because of the burden the […]

The lost pursuer amidst the sand dunes.

Nature may do its bestto stop mankind.But man will not stop,With greater freedom ofmind.In the blazing sun,Endless,unboundedEternal Sands,Far and wide,a vast Sea of magnificent Sand dunes showcase theunique patterns.    Lost amidst the sanddunes, making footprints inthe sandAre you a pursuer or a traveler?Travelers come and go,Their footprints blown away in the Seaof sand.your own eyes deceivesyou by the vision ofmirages.Only […]

Life in reality isdifficult,I don’t want to livein loneliness, waiting for good daysIt doesn’t matter how I feel.Instead,I want change, I need a change.To believe in peopleis,A dignity;A roadmap to bringsociety,closer inthese difficult and unexpected times..Things are never perfect,But every single changea bold step towardsmaking things better..Instead of giving a few coins, Give the time to […]

When the whole sky is yours, why do you choose to be trapped in the “world wide web”?

Knowledge is wealth,If ignorance givespleasure,What do you choose?The choice is up toyou.You have to be astrong winged bird that sings aloud.When the whole sky isyours,Why do you chooseto be trapped in the”world wide web”?Never forget that lifeis an adventure.Today’s youth live in an altered idea ofsocial life, created with the helpof social media whichseems to be a realparallel […]

The light of hope

Life is stuck in thedark,Fear fights logic witha regressive mindset.Fear robs your precioustime.You are not aloneHope for tomorrow’sblissful morning andleave all the painbehind.When things don’t goaccording to your plan,Follow the path of hopeBecause life livesamong hope..If there is a tunnelthere’s always light at the end.No matter how dark it is, life shines again,delivers you toyour […]

Eternal light is beyond our desires..

In the midst of thedarkness of the night,we have many stars tolight up our path.Sky smiles back at us.Stars patiently expresstheir presence,The moon wants to bebehind the cloud, amidst the glitter ofthe stars.  May be he wants thedeep darkness aroundhim.Light at night can be asymbol of life onearth,  meaning “the end of thenight.”But darkness proclaimsand nurtures our truewisdom.We need darkness forsuch […]

Accept the gift and grace of nature..

Scattered pink flowersare welcoming,On the way to thebride’s life.Perfume from thethousands of rose petals thatsurround her, With a breeze brings anew lease of life. Her gentle nature ismirrored with pleasant, softshades.. Accept the gift andgrace of nature,Death and life arecontinuous ..A flower leaves itspride, And fulfills itspurpose of life bygiving, passers-by a sense ofhappiness with its scent.The rose petals aretrying to conveythat a flowers […]
