Life In A Coffee Mug

Life In A Coffee Mug

1 min 211 1 min 211

Grass root for the soil

Birds roost in the trees.

Flowers blossom on the plants

Love blossoms in the bosom


Bees buzz on the flowers

Mobiles buzz in the ears

Dews fall in the morning

Dues fall in the month beginning


Nature’s nature is nurture

Man’s nature is to suffer

If Man can become one with nature

He too becomes one of nature’s creature.


Harmony is life

Disharmony is strife

In our incessant drive to strive

We forget the moment to live


Ceaseless waves in the ocean

Waves of thoughts in the mind

Can the waves keep the self- centredness?

Of the ego at bay.


Time keeps the movement

So do my moods are ever inconsistent

If thinking can be switched off and on

Bliss would be the life, I swear upon


I hope these words give you meaning

It is all from the various gleaning

It is just a fellow traveller’s cue

For the maze of life, just a clue.


Follow your path as you may

That does take you far away

From the day to day life that is gritty

You may disagree, but don’t have self-pity?
