Inexplicable impulses

Magical tapestry of words…

“I’d enlist a hundred reasons, each more complicated than the last, but the simplest, most elegant yet true reason would be that there are some things that one has, had or gets which only point towards the interplay of divinity. She is one of them, and I would’ve been the greatest egotist fool to let her slip away. She might be a tease, a subtle hypocrite, a pretentious presumptuous snob stiff upper lip. But what counts is that she’s my tease, my subtle hypocrite, my pretentious presumptuous snob stiff upper lip. And she’s at least right about this thing- we realize the importance of something only when it’s about to slip away. The vandals of time and distance can do what they want. And we’ll do what we want. And we’ll be happy. Because we did it our way. A military salute to that thought. Did I also forget to mention- I love her.”

The Skill of forgetting

Nimble steps, a bee descends upon a flower,
For this while, it entered the secret garden therein.
Only Sweet love and soft caress of petals,
Next moment, takes off into the rugged terrain.

Slight fragrance dances to the wind’s song,
But with a faint whisper, it has moved on,
Moments we spent were savory, precious,
I loved you and you loved me, that’s all I remember.

Color Coding

While red burned in passion, with a piercing stare,

Pink stood in a corner, unfazed by red’s glare.

Red boasted of its hungry vigor for grand genesis

But pink warmed that moment with an innocent kiss.

 

While red spoke of painfully burning fervor n desire,

Pink was happy and jolly, frolicking with friends…

While Red pined, day in and out, for a love fiery,

Pink, blue, green, orange and yellow made merry.

 

Red needed to chill a li’l , to enjoy such a love,

That only a true friend gives, but freely…

 

One day, Red saw pink outside above the grass,

Looking up, she was all around the sunshine…

Reveling and bouncing off the yellow sun rays,

But, her laughter paled red in sunset’s intense hue.

Pink didn’t crave those gallant ballads,

Pink just skipped off, slipped into blissful sleep,

While red lay awake, dwelling on its flaming intensity.

 

The truth from within, hatred erased,

Lonely fervour only maketh distaste…

 

What you truly have, and what you thoroughly enjoy,

As pink knew always, is that you give away, in joy.

Tears

Don’t cry for someone who won’t wipe them away. The one, who will wash away your tears, won’t make you cry.

Do whatever you will. Only that will happen that has to happen.

It is a humongous illusion that your “love” can leave you. If he/she does leave you, then it is temporary – they will come back in this lifetime or another. However, you need not pine, cry bucket loads of tears or struggle with the pain of separation – because the truth is that the only satisfying, real love can be given to the moments of your life.

Hug them close, hold them dear, sketch your time in vivid, breathtaking detail and you will have no dearth of love.

Nothing to lose

Your love is like a precious gift. However, everyone has a different capacity for receiving and giving love. If others reject your love, it does not mean that your love is inadequate; it means their ability to receive it is not enough. Perhaps, at another time and place things would have been different. If someone does not return your love, you DO NOT go back empty handed. You have grown a little for having the courage to follow your heart’s desire. You are a little more loved by the universe, by nature and by all those near you.

Anatomy of the Heart


heartflow.png

Let’s get straight to the heart of the matter–the heart’s job is to move blood.Day and night, the muscles of your heart contract and relax to pump blood throughout your body. When blood returns to the heart, it follows a complicated pathway. If you were in the bloodstream, you would follow the steps below one by one.1.Oxygen-poor blood (shown in blue) flows from the body into the right atrium.2.Blood flows through the right atrium into the right ventricle.3.The right ventricle pumps the blood to the lungs, where the blood releases waste gases and picks up oxygen.4.The newly oxygen-rich blood (shown in red) returns to the heart and enters the left atrium.5.Blood flows through the left atrium into the left ventricle.6.The left ventricle pumps the oxygen-rich blood to all parts of the body.

Do right and left seem backward? That’s because you’re looking at an illustration of somebody else’s heart. To think about how your own heart works, imagine wearing this illustration on your chest.Sure, you know how to steal hearts, win hearts, and break hearts. But how much do you really know about your heart and how it works? Read on to your heart’s content.Put your hand on your heart. Did you place your hand on the left side of your chest? Many people do, but the heart is actually located almost in the center of the chest, between the lungs. It’s tipped slightly so that a part of it sticks out and taps against the left side of the chest, which is what makes it seem as though it is located there.Hold out your hand and make a fist. If you’re a kid, your heart is about the same size as your fist, and if you’re an adult, it’s about the same size as two fists. Your heart beats about 100,000 times in one day and about 35 million times in a year. During an average lifetime, the human heart will beat more than 2.5 billion times.Give a tennis ball a good, hard squeeze. You’re using about the same amount of force your heart uses to pump blood out to the body. Even at rest, the muscles of the heart work hard–twice as hard as the leg muscles of a person sprinting. Feel your pulse by placing two fingers at pulse points on your neck or wrists. The pulse you feel is blood stopping and starting as it moves through your arteries. As a kid, your resting pulse might range from 90 to 120 beats per minute. As an adult, your pulse rate slows to an average of 72 beats per minute. The aorta, the largest artery in the body, is almost the diameter of a garden hose. Capillaries, on the other hand, are so small that it takes ten of them to equal the thickness of a human hair. Your body has about 5.6 liters (6 quarts) of blood. This 5.6 liters of blood circulates through the body three times every minute. In one day, the blood travels a total of 19,000 km (12,000 miles)– that’s four times the distance across the US from coast to coast.The heart pumps about 1 million barrels of blood during an average lifetime–that’s enough to fill more than 3 super tankers. Lub-DUB, lub-DUB, lub-DUB. Sound familiar? If you listen to your heart beat, you’ll hear two sounds. These “lub” and “DUB” sounds are made by the heart valves as they open and close.

“The” guy

Find a guy, who calls you beautiful instead of hot.

Who calls you back when you hang up on him.

Who will stay awake just to watch you sleep.

Wait for the guy who kisses your forehead.

Who wants to show you off to the world when you are in your sweats.

Who holds your hand in front of his friends.

Wait for the one who is constantly reminding you of how much he cares about you and how lucky he is to have you.

Wait for the one who turns to his friends and says, “…that’s her.”
