All things beautiful

Often in our humdrum busy routine
we forget to give a glance...
a glance at everything dear
a glance at many things near
a glance for some things common
a glance at few things rare

Often in our fast paced lives
we forget to peek...
a peek at how our neighbours are doing
a peek at the gushy river flowing
a peek at a simple dewdrop
a peek at the fallen log

Often in the rush of our everyday lives
we forget to glean...
glean the rushing of the time
glean the mystery of rhyme
glean the long lost lores
glean the reason for many closed doors

Often as time flows past
we forget to see...
see the ordinary things in life
see the extraordinary cutting of a knife
see a simple smile
see the cause for going the extra mile

Wake up and open your eyes
beauty and illuminance are in your sight!

These are bright and beautiful thoughts, that must come from a person with beautiful thoughts!

A gentle reminder to stop and smell the flower and do a random act of kindness:)

Lovely Mithe!

SMRITI said...

This was just So beautiful Mithe...Reminds me of the start of Lage Raho Munnabhai and the things that Vidya Balan says about not having time to notice... Every little thing has beauty...only we dont see it.

Very well Put Mithe..Hugs :)

Just call me 'A' said...

methink that one of the most important things we forget is to say 'i love you' and 'i value you'....
This is soo beautiful Mithe. I sigh after reading it all. Now i will head out to smell the cold wind and check out the beauty in the tree twigs.
BTW, speaking about noticing things, I realized the the song 'words' in your playlist sounds different. There are two voice recording. Is one of those voices yours? :)
