Time to PONDer

pond
I have always been fascinated
by ponds – big, medium or small. 
Some are natural,  others may come
with lovely sculptures or refreshing fountains.
But, my favourite is the pond that has healthy
well-fed Koi swimming in it.
I visited a Catholic church recently and
I was delighted to see a beautiful pond
with a statue of Jesus Christ.
And when I took a closer look
I was thrilled to see a group of energetic
Koi swimming in the pond.
Just watching the Koi makes me glad.
I feel peace within and at the same time intrigued 
by these amazing Koi, for they embody  
a  kind of quiet beauty and mystery.
And I can’t help but ponder
on the importance of
love, unity, and friendship.

Let’s start the race!

xb2020x2
I live in a country where
we are still defined by our race.
Some say,
it’s to preserve our own culture and heritage.
But I beg to differ as
over the years had caused much
discrimination and discord.
And those in authority are
killing our spirits
with their on-going rhetoric
for popularity and votes.
We need to see ourselves as 
one nation, one human race.
Let us join our hearts together
to push for change 
no matter how difficult
or long it may take
for the sake of our children
and future generations.
The time is now, my friends.
Let’s start the race today!

World Peace & Harmony

Remembering 9/11

World Peace & Harmony

– Shyamli Suneesh
Peace is glory, peace is dignity,
peace is love and peace is amity.

Birds fly freely high up in the blue sky,
Flowers bloom and cherish when spring arrives.
Dews settle on leaves with deliberate happiness,
As bees buzz excited around their hives.

Why aren’t we as happy as they are?
So free, so elated
and no complaints at all.
Take the morning paper in your hand 
and you’d find destruction all over land,
going around in evil bands 
making peace and harmony banned.
War, conflict and destruction everywhere
arresting our accord even while asleep 
Oh! God now is so very rare
And is peace today that hard to keep?
People are killed 
every now and then.
Oh! Isn’t there anyone who’s skilled,
to place the eminent gem
of tranquility and unity.
I woke up today morning,
to enjoy Mother Breeze.
She says if we’d stop roaring
and take everything with ease,
we’d surely succeed in gaining world peace
As trees and flowers sway
and the wind runs over my face
It brings in a new ray of hope
that world peace can still return
“May the World Live in Peace and Harmony”
