Life Is A Suitcase…

white luggage

Did you know that life’s a suitcase

In which we journey through this maze?

You put the things you feel you’ll need

As you trundle along at your own speed

Good portion of love

Inside your trove

Helpings of smiles

Will go a mile

Family and friends can come along

They are always there to keep us strong

A dash of life skills is worthwhile too

A pinch of resilience without much ado

Good thoughts, positive vibes are simply a must

With good faith and in God we trust

Sometimes some run out of space

They end up with a bursting suitcase

Sometimes we over anticipate

And end up paying for excess luggage

Though life may have it’s bumpy trails

But if we pack with some essential stuff

We would enjoy it as we set sweet sail

That my friend would be good enough.

Bliss is waking up late on a beautiful Saturday morning, lounging in bed, cocooned beside the warm body of your loved one and talking about everything and nothing.

Bliss is eating a robust, nutritious home-made breakfast, smiling about nothing and everything, and generally feeling happy.

That’s my bliss. So, what’s your  bliss 😉 ?

Mundane Monday · Photographs

Mundane Monday #1…

Photrablogger says,

This is a challenge created to find beauty in almost everything. The challenge is simple : find beauty in everyday mundane things, capture the beauty and upload the photographs.


I was chopping this bell pepper and was so excited to find the baby one tucked right in the middle. It delighted me. Yes such a mundane act made me feel happy about the circle of life. I hope I didn’t kill a baby bell pepper 😉
