Somewhere over the rainbow...

                                                Ooo oooooo oooooo oooo ooo ooo ooo
                                                              Ooooo oooooo oooooo
Ooo ooo ooo
Ooo ooo ooo

Somewhere, over the rainbow, way up high,
And the dreams that you dreamed of,
Once in a lullaby.
Oh, somewhere over the rainbow,
blue birds fly, And the dreams that you dreamed of,
Dreams really do come true.

Someday, I'll wish upon a star,
Wake up where the clouds are far behind me.
Where trouble melts like lemon drops,
High above the chimney top,
That's where you'll find me.

Oh, somewhere, over the rainbow, bluebirds fly,
And the dreams that you dare to.
Oh why, oh why can't I?

Someday, I'll wish upon a star,
Wake up where the clouds are far behind me.
Where trouble melts like lemon drops,
High above the chimney tops,
That's where you'll find me.

Oh, somewhere, over the rainbow, bluebirds fly,
And the dreams that you dare to,
Oh why, oh why can't I?

Ooooo oooooo oooooo
Ooooo oooooo oooooo
Ooo ah, ah, ah... eh ah ah, eh ah ah ah ah...

An awesome song that I recently heard....the more I listen to this ...the more my heart smiles.

Tracy my friend, this is for you :) I salute for who you are !!

A date with graffiti :)

Hi friends

Last few days have been amazingly arty   :)
I had a date with graffiti :)

Yes I grabbed the opportunity to attend
 a workshop held by two graffiti artists 
Ruben Sanchez and eL Seed
 here at The Archive in Al Safa Park.

Enjoyed every bit of it !!
You can very well see this in the photos here :)


Now that was absolute fun
 and look at the colors vibrant and
 emitting so much positive energy !!

Hope you all are having fun too....
busy in and out making preparations for
Christmas and New Year !

Now this is what is on my table...

"Some day our souls will be one
And our union will last forever.
I know that everything I give
Comes back to me.
So I give you my life,
Hoping that you will come back to me."

Much love to all of you...may the spirit of the season bring you new joys :)

Dance of the Divine !

Neon shades of light
spreading arms...wide and bright
my feet ...moving rhythmically to glory
each tiny step shimmering with an untold story.

Every single trace of sunbeam
driving away many shadows
sprinkling gold on soft clouds
adding sparkle to open windows.

I swirl and I twirl...
leaving a trail of I lift my feet...
singing beauty...dancing dreams...
in unison with my heart beat !

Pure unspoken love
flowing through my eyes
filling the infinite between the souls
adding warmth to the sunset skies.

Connecting those little dots of joys
stretching my smiles...kindled with poise
I wander...seeking for the beautiful...
the bountiful... and in exuberance I rejoice!

As I spin and spin ...I liberate...
and surrender...all that is mine...
I embrace the unknown
celebrate and soar to the divine !!

Drop the story...

Hey my beautiful friends

 The weather in my part of the world is brilliant..
.it's raining outside and I absolutely love rain
It makes me feel like a peacock  :)

It gives spring to my feet..
I feel as if 
.something down inside me is waiting to burst  open into light...

 my box of paints beckons me to create joy..
.to surrender my mind and slide into the bewilderment...

and so here I am to share my joy and exuberance with all of you!!

This week has been quite eventful...
and among all the other beautiful things which I had a chance to do...
the Universal Children's Day on the 20th was awesome !!
I had the opportunity
 to be with amazing kids with special needs 
and take a workshop in Al Safa Park here...

Each one of them created a bouquet of Special Roses 
as I called them.

The four simple steps were very easy to follow
 and the result was not only surprising 
but simply stunning !!

Nature in the surroundings...
beautiful weather... 
cool breeze ...
beautiful friends ...
 the MAGIC of ART ...

 and those priceless smiles 
what else could I ever wish for !!

Recently read "Drop your are not your story!
Yes let's stop complaining...she said this...he said that...I am heart is broken and so on...
stop crying over the one is interested to know...
let us make every moment beautiful
and bring smiles to our family and friends !!

Happiness in a glass and more :)

What on earth 
could be more luxurious 
than some relaxing music ... 
some tubes of paint ...
 a brush in your hand ...
 a sketch book on your desk ...
 and a cup of coffee !!!

I am sure you all would agree :)

Recently I had a chance
 to visit a super cafe called Spill the Bean...
and it's here that I got a chance
 to enjoy this absolutely fabulous cold brew with dates...
So I thought of capturing
 the happiness I experienced
 in a glass and share it with you all my lovely friends...

Well yes I have painted this
 using this wonderful, 
ground heaven called coffee as my medium...

This is how it was served... in a glass ...
are you drooling ??

I also did this "Sunny side Up" !

Hungry ???

The oranges and the yellows
Of the sunshine
The melodies of the cuckoo and
The parrots on the line
Walking barefoot
On the green grass
Anklets kissing
The dew drops
Chasing butterflies
In the garden
Collecting match boxes
Just for fun
… all remind me of you , my love !

Falling soft upon the fields
The rain…sparkling…tinkling
Jeweled mango leaves…
The endless flights
On the tree swings
The paper boats
In the puddles
Those doodles
And the riddles
… all remind me of you , my love !

The happy colours
Of a sari
The mysterious folds
Of a pagri
The ringing bells
From the temples
The stories and
The fables
The joys
Of the festivals
The memories made on travels
…all remind me of you , my love !

Paradise …
In your skies
Rustic smell
Of your soil
The warmth in your cool,
Whispering breeze
The embrace of the morning mist,
Oh ! …eternal bliss
The spectacular seasons
The beauty that beckons
… all remind me of you , my love !

you belong
To the entire world
I can truly sense
Your divine presence
In my little heart!
I sit here…miles away
My breath inhales…there
Your light…my love…
My India

Through my eyes !!!

Hey my awesome friends... 
The words you just read reflect my love for my country...India :)
This poem along with the artwork has been published in The Indian Trumpet
It indeed is a splendid magazine about all things Indian.
Do visit their portal and enjoy :)

A pilgrimage within

“I am not this hair, I am not this skin, I am the soul that lives within.” ~ Rumi 


The time passes by
I ask...
I receive...
I hunger for more...
the days pass by... I smile

I seek...
I discover...
I explore for more...
the days pass by... I smile

I breathe...
I sit still...
I live each heartbeat...
the days pass by... I smile

I look within...
I see love...
love ...within love... within love...
the days pass by... I smile

I dream...
I begin...
I live...
the time passes by...I smile :)
