BEING A LADY…

Published May 17, 2012 by aquaturtleme

I feel so special being a lady

The Lord’s tenderest creation

With a very tender and delicate mind

Ebbing & flowing for

A small pussy left alone in the street

A street dog stoned

A hungry  old man

Laying in corner of a railway station

A homeless mother trying to protect her baby

An insane girl thrown in the street

A small boy who has no friends

An old woman waiting in a faraway land

For her children & their kids to come home

A cancer patient struggling with pain

A mother who has lost her son

A soldier’s wife watching news

with trembling heart

An innocent victim in the jail

A girl molested

A fearful woman

almost running in the dark

to reach her abode

A labour injured in a construction site

Lone survivor of a tsunami

A cheated wife

A suspicious man

An abandoned baby

A child trapped by a beggar gang

A tortured kid

An accident victim

& so so many in trouble

In similar & varied situations…

All humans feel for all these

But being a lady

Leaves me much more sensitive

And empathic to these situations

‘Coz a woman is the softest creation of God

Leave alone the so many

Exceptions available in nature

LOST TIME

Published May 17, 2012 by aquaturtleme

On many an idle day have I grieved over lost time. 

But it is never lost, my lord. 
Thou hast taken every moment of my life in thine own hands. 

Hidden in the heart of things thou art nourishing seeds into sprouts, 
buds into blossoms, and ripening flowers into fruitfulness. 

I was tired and sleeping on my idle bed 
and imagined all work had ceased. 


In the morning I woke up 
and found my garden full with wonders of flowers.
