Kites of Life

Kites of Life

Many a kind… they do unwind
The colours of kites… are the colours of light..

In a tiny twine… they form a line
Connecting…and Combine so fine

Though so far… viewed in par
Control in you…though flaws occur

Mind is your kite, Heart is your twine
Blending both…makes your life Divine.

Right Wrong

What’s right… what is wrong..
Never we heed… to dive beyond..

The path we choose, is the path we lead
Right or wrong.. change seldom screams.

Gone with the wind, gone with its sails
Ever do remember.. That truth never fails.

Crave

All we do is crave..
From dreams to actions,
From actions to directions.
All we do is crave.
Time to think is what we lack,
Time to heal is what we never peel.
All we do is crave on heels.
What we need..What we don’t,
Is never ever asked within..anymore.
All we do is crave for more.
Be the crave in Kind
Be the crave in Joy
Be the crave in Peace
All we do is crave for all others than these.
True to your heart, True to your soul..
Crave for love that ignites thy soul,
Crave for life that binds thy soul.
All said and all done..still
All we do is crave..

Don’t worry my friend…

Don’t worry my friend…

People step in and step out from our lives…
They are the lessons, we learn, in life.
Varieties of people…differ by heart and mind,
piercing and delighting our moments of many kind.
Listen to your heart, listen to your soul…
break all the rules that smell foul.
I may not be your advisor, nor your preacher…
A listener I am, a lending shoulder I am, for you.
Don’t worry on the past;
nor on the future.. as it’s always, a tomorrow.
Today is the day, Today is your cast…
the moment to live…the moment to last.
Smile your way that makes millions their day…
Being happy is simple, Making others happy gives your heart, an ample dimple.

Live High

Live high with no sigh..
Outlooks arrive… for words to derive.
Calm as a clam.. Strong as a storm…
Dwell in thy life.. beaconing your norms.

Rings of Life

On a fine morning, whistling through the blues and thumbing through her phone, she eyed a circle of knowns flashing through the lights on her device’s screen. Lounging aback and whiling for some time, passing through spectrums of memories, she realised she entered the ring of life, not just once but once again through.

Rings of life are memories afresh making our moments alive, keeping the spark within to glow and glitter. Another day to be happy and ever after!

Our stay @ Amanti Cottage

We had an awesome stay and amazing time at the cottage. It’s a stupendous place with artistic splendour decorated inside out in parallel to the modern world.
– The garden is a pure bliss. It’s calm, clean and tidy. You can have a glimpse of the birds that visit the garden everyday. During our stay, two red parrots visited and my kids feed them with the grains that were kept handy in the cottage.
– The Kitchen and Living room are of modern standards with all accessories made available. Only thing we found missing was a blender. Apart from that, the kitchen is superbly equipped with all essentials. The fridge is equipped with jams, breads, eggs, butter, peanut butter and milk for morning breakfasts.
– The Living room is huge with a big flat screen tv and a dvd player with a huge collection of dvds. Me and my kids watched the “The lost world” movie. It was fun. The sofa is so very plushy and made our backs super comfortable.
– Each of the bedrooms were graced with grandeur and style.
– The bathroom has a spa!!! That’s a wow wow wow… Once you get in, you won’t want to come out. That was my experience while I was in the spa with my kids. Neither did they want to come out nor did I 🙂 lol.
– The cottage is equipped with a centralised heating system which worked wonders during our stay. The beds had electric heating blankets which did their job to their best.
– The carport is huge and our 8 seater wagon fitted in perfectly.
Overall, our stay at Amanti cottage gave us some evergreen moments and everlasting memories to take along. Thanks to Kim for accomodating us in such short notice and making our stay memorable forever.
