Teeny-Weeny Blessings

I felt what should I be thankful for,
When there are so much to pull me down;
Yet I realize many trivial things that
Make life more meaningful and grateful;

In hide and seek, chuckling with fun;

No matter how many times
Does he embrace, no matter.
Exhilarates my soul, sure.
No less than any one time

My sweet tomato, where did you go?

Mixing the soil, sowing the seeds
Sprinkling, watering, caring
Day by day, week by week!
Sprouts to tiny shoots
Leaves, flowers and then...
A tiny tiny tomato!

Profound joy

I said to my younger son,
 "Why do I love you so much?"
Without missing a beat, he said,

Augment your happiness
Abridge your sorrows
Feel proud of your success
Form a fraction of your days
Give momentum when needed

Put you on track sometimes
Who else could they be?
Friends, Friends, Friends!

Happy friendship day dear friends! Happy friendship day dear friends!

The buddies

Hi, my name is Alvin. I like dogs, they are so cute. So I'm going to tell you a story   about dogs.
now I'l tell the #1 story. Once upon a time there was 5 dogs, their names are B - dawg (boy),  Budha(boy), rosebud (girl),  budderball(boy) ,mudbud(boy). Ok then B-dawg said yo dawg  we need kid owners. Mudbud said let's go to the dog pound. Budha  said  now wait for the dog  catcher. The dog catcher is coming and he is going to put us in the cage.  Now we are in the cage, wait for the kids to come. Then its the next day. Five kids come and pick the dogs. All the dogs barked. At the kids home the dogs got new special dresses. Rosebud lived in a townhouse, Budderball lived in a mansion, Budha lived in a bungalow, Mudbud lived in independent house and B-dawg lived in bungalow too.

One time they went to the dog park and met a new friend. His name was Snowy. He was so soft. They went in the farms's path to go to the other side of the park. But it was getting too hot so they had to go back.
Then it was night when they reached home. They slept and then the next day Budderball just had a cake. He asked where is the beef  and where is the pizza? He ate nothing for breakfast. Then they went to the park and saw two dog nappers. They ran to hide in the woods near the park. Whe nthey came near to get them the dogs knew that budderball throws sand to eachother. He did that to the dog nappers. They thought the dogs were strong and went back to the car and hid.
That night they went to the under the stars movie. Then they saw the dog nappers coming. The dogs hid under the chair. The dog nappers climbed the theatre screen and then they saw every dog but it was a bad idea that they had ropes tied to the tree. So they go down very slowly.  And when they jumped down they were going one mile per hour. And then everybody was throwing popcorn and soda on those two nappers. When they got off the screen, they landed in two motorbikes and the people who owned the motorbikes got very angry and threw the nappers out of the park. They never came back. And then Rosebud said we win! And they all came out of hiding and they all barked to their kids.

This is the post by Alvin.

Will miss you, Loving missile man!

From poverty to Presidency
From sands to the sky
And beyond...
Soared a man, Yet not alone

Leading a multitude
Galvanizing generations
Sparkling dreams
Soared a man, Yet not alone

Inspiring the nation
Scintillating the world
Icon of humility
Soared a man, Yet not alone

Loving missile man
Saddening the country
Resting his soul
Soared a man, leaving us alone

We will miss you Dr.APJ Abdul Kalam! Rest in Peace! :-(

Bird feeder - recycled DIY

With their songs, they bring cheer
 Astound with the skills they bear;
Tunes of courtship, choice  of nesting
Backyard visitors cast a spell!
What can I give them, to stay a little longer? Will they like what I've made?

Cutout Collage

Henri Matisse (1869 - 1954) was a French painter and collage artist. He was recovering from a serious sickness when he was 21 and his mother gifted him a paint set. That's when Henri discovered his interest and talent in painting. He knew he had found his gift. He began to pain in a different way towards the end of his life.

Color Explosion - Welcome Spring

Robert Delaunay (1885 - 1941), a French Painter was born in Paris. He started painting at the age of 19. His artwork was influenced by the cubist painters of the time. In Cubism, artists depicted objects as if they were broken apart and reassembled, so that when we look at the flat surface of the painting, we see several sides of the object simultaneously. Delaunay was inspired by the son and colors of nature. He said, "Light in nature creates the movements in colors."

In 1930s Delaunay began a series of paintings called Rhythms of Circular forms.

Magazine pencil stand - DIY

I have reduced the use of plastic as much as I can and hate to throw the few which come in my way. No, I can't let them ruin Mother Earth. Wish we could get rid of these completely or find a way to decompose them. Out of the world, plastic!!! Well, coming back to the post, I had bought yogurt and it came in a plastic container. Savoured the yogurt and recycled the container, along with some old magazine. Double bonus that it had glossy papers. Here is what I did.

The awe of beginnning

Poetry has always captured my heart, has made me feel a bliss, has touched my soul, has resonated in my brain. The words stringed together, yet dance in all its individuality, awakening my senses, refreshing my blood like oxygen, poetry has always been something which enthralled me.

The poetic love in me has always been alive, making me appreciate nature and life. It has opened my eyes to completely different things, no matter small or big. Its a feeling of joy, feeling of sorrow! It makes me look at microbes and mountains, puddles and plains. A flower smiles at me, talks with me, so does a rock! Poetry makes me love, to enjoy various things, teaches me to see things which others don't.

Wonderful its going to be

While I count my blessings
Very much do I realize
What a wonderful year had it been!
With ups and downs, smiles and tears
Wrapping down many a memories
What a wonderful year had it been!

While I count my blessings
Whisking away my musings
Winding up the passing year
Welcoming the arriving new year
Very much do I trust
Wonderful its going to be!

Wish you all a very Happy Blessed New Year 2015! :)
