Poetry of the Stars..

I gaze at the night sky, Full of joy – and cry, For I long to fly Up to the stars that sparkle in the sky.   What adventure awaits me; What peace and tranquility it must be, To transcend to that level And unfeignedly be able to revel.   Engaging with the stars – I will, Until I make myself ill; There is no right or wrong about them; They simply exist for us to marvel at them;   They light up the darkly sky, Revealing heavenly wonders to the eye. Truly I say unto thee: Join in with me at gazing at the wondrous sky And stand, rapt in awe With your head held-up high.   Let’s attempt to fly Amongst the treasures of the sky; Let’s be mesmerized by the constellation And reconsider our situation.   Leave all your worries behind And let’s instead make ourselves blind To this superficial reality That has plagued our mentality.   Join me … Read entire article »

‘..Rajarishi..’ by Kay Salady

A princely sage looked down on me And whispered his philosophy With sparkling eyes, so caring and true His words of wisdom pierced right through This rebellious mind of mine That isn’t quite as good and kind As I’d aspired myself to be He saw beyond my dignity To the heart and soul of me He pointed toward the common good The selfless act of brotherhood He sang a song – the sound of peace The breath of God that brings release That welcomes all earth’s children home As we, together, whisper, “OM” Kay Salady is a writer based in Arizona, USA.

It is on this joyous moment that makes worth of all the bloods and sweats of thousands of Indian freedom fighters. I salute them for their unwavering courage, determination, and the dream of swaraj that makes them immortal in the historical chapter of Indian freedom movement. At this present moment, we, Tibetans are living in such traumatic era of foreign invasion, which resembles that of India during the British rule.

Modern Times

Making my way around in life, I have come to the conclusion that I am one of many billions of people who must conform to a life of continuous, familiar rituals:  like everyone else, I proceed to the supermarket  to perform my ‘hunter-gatherer’ duties. As I enter this perplexed ‘Colosseum’, it dawns on me that you must defend yourself like a ‘gladiator’,  or be crushed by the mad ‘rush’ of confused ‘Neanderthals’ attempting to shop. Once I make it to the checkout, the glare of the ‘assistant’ drives me catatonic – so much so, that I don’t even attempt  to interact with her. At  home – which happens to be an appartment suspended 12 feet in the air, on the first floor – with a cube-shaped, 3-dimensional ‘box’ for a living room, linked … Read entire article »
