Life as it is, has to be enjoyed in sips. Slower the sips, delightful the taste that enhances the pleasure beyond imagination!

Food for life..... Hidden behind doors...

I dig in to read more, write more, paint more.... anything and everything. Have compiled a few of my free writes. Intend to publish eventually. Start here - baby steps. More next month!

Crimson Survival
Love to wake the sun though crimson yet, a promising reverie   the few golden hues wipe my pain, I'm fine; the soothing breeze warms my spine   head held high I am not a leaf nor a branch  to be swayed I'm a trunk  strong not frayed   love the morning sun love the glow love the hope a hope to fight the blow!

A hope when you are at the end of it. How you draw strength from within. The most important source of all.

Prodigal Me Still, look up and move on...
Dooms day And I walk on Still head held high Don't wanna give up No matter how hard Blow after blow On my heart Blow from up above He gave me all  I didn't care Didn't take care Got too much of everything Love money and everything in between But  I have been prodigal Now its payback time One by one  He is taking it all Slow slaps of fate For the prodigal me Will I ever learn? Hopefully. So, I still hold my head high And sigh, Tomorrow is yet another day ! When you have everything, one fine day you do realise how you have wasted that was bestowed upon you!
