Calling All Creative Minds/Poets and Artists on a Poetic Collaboration – “Happy”!

image copyright neha 2022

Hello Everyone~

It’s been a while since I have done one of these but thought it was a good time to do a poetic collaboration on things that make us happy. Could be a piece of toast, a beautiful day or a kind gesture…I think we need to see more of these during these times…

If you are new to my blog you can see an example of a previous collaboration via this link. Everyone is welcome to participate and I will add your contribution in the order they are posted. You can post your piece in the comment, please ensure to post the actual text not just a link in order to be considered. You can post multiple times. Hateful language will not be tolerated and will be promptly removed if posted. The collaboration will be open until 10 pm MST April 30, 2022. As usual, I will start it off, and I hope many of you will join me in making this yet another beautiful collaborative effort!

And the daydreamer,
followed her dreams,
in the open roads,
of spring.

Blossoms bend their heads
in the breeze moving
through this meadow.

Hummingbirds twitter.
Sun is warm.

Knitting Makes Me Happy

When I have nothing else to do I sit

and knit and knit and knit all day
only getting up when its time to pray
then back again to the needles to fit

I knit for babies I knit for kids

I love to mix the colours bright
I love to knit pullovers tight

and now for the hands the mitts

I find the mind involved and away

from all stress strife and things astray
I feel happy that I have the skill to make
clothes for others to keep warm and awake

for me its a reading calculating book

I see beyond the normal outlook
I see the stars rainbows in stitches
away stays sadness magic and witches

Its good to have this as a hobby

pray count and blend happiness
stay focused on The Good Scheme
Be blessed in heart smile in the dream

Stretched out on the lawn
bathed in warm sun
we idle with you, our travelling son
spend time on important things
laughter, love and
space to simply be

She adjusted my jacket collar ,
smiled a that looks better smile ,
with that simple gesture I felt happy ,
I felt loved .

Under the moonlit sky

I saw you for the first time

I was awed for you were glowing

Like the millions of stars in the sky

But you didn’t see me then, maybe because you were crying

And I found it impossible not to approach and ask you “why”?

You turned towards me, your lips playing a sad smile

You said you wanted to fly

You said you wanted to let out a happy cry

You said you wanted to dream

However hard it may seem

But you couldn’t

You were fading away with the melancholic night

You asked me to stay, to help you dream

You extended your hand for me to take and with you, fly

But I turned away

Because my love,

I too, was fading away

Under that moonlit sky.

The scent of a smile
Rejoicing the air
Pure moment of bliss

Thank you for the bottom
Of heart melt with
Honey precious light

Happiness Comes

Happiness comes in waves
like the rhythm of the sea;
Boundless energy bringing
Pure love and joy
to your every breath.

Morning coffee

The noise of the grass cutter.
A quiet breakfast is out.
The noise gets louder.
I cringe as I drink my coffee.

Then I get a whiff so soothing.
The smell of freshly cut grass.
The smell of coffee; its taste.
The noise fades, I enjoy my coffee.

Free Verse

The first time I ran out of rhyme,

I felt like it was a crime,

as though travelling on an unfamiliar path,

lost…

but then my eyes gazed on the wild flowers,

and my feet felt the softest green,

and suddenly my heart was ok,

with the cost…

of what ‘they’ called,

a ‘free’ verse.

Meandering Heart

With the weather like today,

as the green glimmers in the sun rays,

my heart refuses to stay,

inside…

 

It wants to fly with the breeze,

dancing with ease,

with the sway of the trees,

touching the sky…

 

With the weather like today,

as the green glimmers in the sun rays,

my heart meanders away,

outside.

Happy Friday!

Those mornings when your eyes refuse to open,

and you wish it was the weekend…

and you wake up with with sigh,

thinking you are just a day shy,

but as the sun hits your face,

you are ready to embrace,

the alluring ‘almost’ of Friday,

happy.

Liberation of the mind

In the darkest of night,

when the stars were hard to find…

I found,

my liberated mind…

free in the dark,

and free in the light…

free to jump,

to reach new heights….

free to cry,

and free to smile…

and free,

to ponder for a while….

the love I hold for you,

in this liberated mind.

moonless night

Music of the cosmos

Perched on the branch of silent reflection,

you drift with the moonbeam,

to the stars,

your heart lost,

to the music of the cosmos.

Soulmate

You come to my life…

like the long lost melody of my soul,

like my heart’s forgotten scroll,

like the cool breeze after summer rain,

the one who cradles my pain,

like the traveller walking on sunshine,

who brightens my days,

and lightens my nights,

You come to my life.
