Poem - Dreams keep us alive!



Travelling in a giant ship,
to a destination unknown,
surrounded by waters strange,
far far away the bright Sun shone,
The long journey can boggle,
and render the mind lifeless,
the Sun can give the warmth,
but cannot be reached by the flightless,
Some enthusiasm is needed every moment,
to make the obsoleting life thrive,
like sun, achievable or not,
our dreams keep us alive!

Poem - Inspiration


Blank canvas, like blank mind,
wonders how it would finally find,
colourful thoughts to dance on its surface,
and an artist so kind.

Kind enough to spend some time,
choosing among colours rouge, azure or lime,
put these into a beautiful landscape,
or paint some memories from his prime.

His prime focus is to pick up the brush,
and decorate the canvas without any rush,
he had the talent, but couldn't create,
as a river of inexpression, towards his mind gush.

Gushed in with immense and formidable force,
the artist tried to defend, couldn't judge its source,
stayed there for next few months,
gradually inexpression was succeeded by remorse.

Remorse pronounce enough to suspend,
the creativity that was naive to transcend,
the mountain of fear, doubt and uncertainty,
and to imagine what waits on the other end.

End reminded him, why did he start,
the commotion of the outside world, instilled a spark,
from within his soul came a voice,
'This is your moment to leave your mark.

Mark my words, I free you from hesitation,
You have been already chosen by the creation,
to be born from your brush dancing over the canvas,
Canvas like life, becomes alive with a touch of Inspiration!'

Art - Land of peace

Hello Everyone,

Hope you all are enjoying the weekend.

I managed to finish the below digital painting, titled "Land of peace" last week. A total of 10 hours were invested in its making.  I loved painting the myriad hues in the sky and the floating fluffy clouds.


I am really liking the digital medium as I can work on multiple paintings at a time, one on easel and one on iPad. Digital paintings are quite forgiving, things get good again in few strokes. I have planned to work atleast one painting per week in digital medium. Hopefully I get time to achieve this. Keep tuned for more posts!

Poem - How far



How far can one reach, to fulfil their dreams,
When they remain silent, and their impeccable flair screams,

Not every year, day or hour, but, every moment they spend,
Thinking and working, to accomplish what they intend,

Every bliss, every distress, on the way they face,
makes their journey even more, worthwhile to retrace,

First destiny takes over them, its will they defy,
to change the reality, on their dreams they rely,

After tireless combat, finally they taste the victory,
the writer's pens are ready, to write the history,

Like a proud mother, Destiny blesses them and smiles,
She Laurels them on covering countless unendurable miles,

How far one can reach, to fulfil their dreams,
Destiny wants to witness, their odds and extremes.
