Grey isn’t What I’m Meant to be …

Life is somewhat grey
Just monotony
Lost and lonely …

Don’t you know?

Only when you stay
Life is colorful ….
A hopeful glow
Echoes of brighter joy
Birds sing cheerful songs
Rays of sunshines warm my cheeks
My yellow dyed dreams return …

Now it’s grey
Everywhere …

When will you come?
Without you, I feel grey ….

Don’t you know?
Grey isn’t what I’m meant to be …

  1. Awesome poem! You have an extraordinary talent to express your inner voice.
    I understand that life can sometimes feel grey, monotonous, and lonely. However, it’s important to remember that there are also moments of colour, hope, and joy that can brighten our days. It’s during these moments that life becomes vibrant and meaningful.

    When you choose to stay present and appreciate the small joys around you, life can indeed become more colorful. The beauty of nature, the cheerful songs of birds, the warmth of sunshine on your skin—all these experiences can bring a sense of happiness and rejuvenation. They have the power to awaken your dreams and infuse them with a yellow hue, symbolizing optimism and positivity.

    While life may have its ups and downs, it’s essential to cherish these moments of brightness and hold onto the hope they bring. By seeking out and embracing these instances of joy, you can transform the greyness into a colourful tapestry of experiences and emotions.

    The great Himalayan range in the Kashmir Valley is a breathtaking spectacle that commands awe and admiration. Its majestic peaks, soaring to unimaginable heights, stand as sentinels of nature’s grandeur. They create a stunning backdrop that captivates the senses and leaves an indelible mark on the soul.

    Imagine standing amidst the lush green valleys and gazing upwards, your eyes tracing the snow-capped summits that pierce the sky. The Himalayas seem to touch the heavens themselves, as if inviting you to explore their secrets and discover the mysteries hidden within their folds.

    The beauty of the Kashmir Valley’s Himalayas lies not only in their sheer magnitude but also in their serene and ethereal presence. The mountains exude an air of tranquility, as if they have witnessed the passing of time and hold within them the wisdom of ages. Their silent grace imparts a sense of calm and introspection, inviting you to pause and reflect on the magnificence of the natural world.

    In the early morning, as the first rays of sunlight kiss the mountain peaks, a magical transformation takes place. The snow-capped summits are bathed in a golden glow, painting the entire panorama with a warm and inviting hue. The interplay of light and shadow creates a mesmerizing dance, highlighting the contours and ruggedness of the mountains with an artistic touch.

    As you venture further into the valleys, you’ll encounter a tapestry of colors and textures that harmonize with the grandeur of the Himalayas. Crystal-clear streams meander through the landscape, their gentle flow a testament to the purity and vitality of the region. Verdant meadows dotted with wildflowers add a vibrant touch to the scene, as if nature itself is celebrating in a riot of hues.

    But it is not just the visual splendor that enchants the senses. The Himalayas of the Kashmir Valley have a profound effect on the spirit. Their presence invokes a sense of humility, reminding us of our place in the vastness of the universe. They inspire introspection, contemplation, and a deep appreciation for the wonders of our planet.

    To witness the beauty of the great Himalayan range in the Kashmir Valley is to witness a masterpiece of nature’s creation. It is an experience that transcends words, an encounter that evokes a sense of wonder and reverence. It is a place where the soul finds solace, where the heart finds inspiration, and where the mind finds peace.

    Stay blessed always.
    Best wishes.😊🙏

    1. Dear Arun Singha Ji,
      It filled me with a sense of awe to read your thoughtful prose.

      Thank you so much for taking time and writing to me here and sharing your thoughts and feelings with such artistic expression.

      I don’t know what to say to reply you. But I know I have a lot to share …

      First of all, I absolutely have no talent of such a volume as you expressed, but it’s a great feeling to be encouraged in such way.

      Yes, I hold on to the Hope and enjoy little things in life. You are right. We can always transform the greyness into a colourful tapestry.

      Life has its ups and downs. If people fail to appreciate the small joys around, one might fall into despair and depression … and I m not going through that path surely …

      About Kashmir, it’s aptly described, “Agar Firdaus bar rōy-e zamin ast, hamin ast-o hamin ast-o hamin ast.”
      For me it was an once in a lifetime experience. I experienced a different me there with undefined sentiments, feelings, and warmth in heart. I was mesmerised to witness the timeless beauty of Kashmir and it had its moments within my soul.

      Definitely there is something over there. That’s why may be I was at a lost for sometime after coming from my Kashmir trip. All things that I usually experience here seem so meaningless and it was hard to return to mundane matters after such amazing soulful moments in Kashmir. Guess what! When I reached the peak of the Apharwat mountains through the second phase of Gondola ride, my eyes were wide and awake and twinkling with joy and excitement. Never ever I was at such edge of a snow-capped mountain all around where my two eyes saw white heavenly view as far as they could …

      I did skiing, sledging, hiking⛷️
      The skiing was a difficult part. I had a trainer who was so gentle and helped me overcoming my doubts and then I was able to ski on white board all around for sometime and it was the best experience ever.
      Then at one time I found myself hiking a bit up without single soul with me. Then after sometime, I felt like there was something spiritual gifted souls with me who were accompanying me towards the path…. When my consciousness came into existence, I got a shiver and felt a heavy urge to come back from that solo exploration into that heavenly path …
      Yes certainly ‘mysteries hidden within their folds’….

      It certainly has its profound effect on my spirit. True, a journey to Kashmir is a journey to find yourself.

      However the poem is a gentle expression from a lover’s point of view. How an ardent lover misses her beloved when he’s away. While waiting for him, her life seems grey …
      ☺️ I’m not sure if I could express it well enough or not, but I did love the photograph I shared… I took it during my gondola ride in Gulmarg. Hope you liked that as well.

      Best wishes to you too.
      Stay blessed. 🙏😊

      2. Hello Arun Singha Ji,

        There’s so much compliments for me which I do not deserve.Being positive about all the good words though and feeling humbled. I wrote what I felt like sharing. And you’ve inspired it all. Thank you for your valuable time here and spreading positivity.

        And I hope you’ll fulfill your dreams of experiencing those mountains sports soon … it’s really so exciting and fun there …

        Well, I have read your article on ‘The Power of Friendship’. Liked it and I believe as you said, ‘true friendship can flourish among individuals from diverse backgrounds, enriching our lives with their unique perspectives and experiences.’ True! Just I wish to be away from the unholy friendship which are not good in anyways.

        Meanwhile I have also read your Journey through Books part 1 and 2. I wish to read the other parts as well. Quite an interesting journey!

        You are a very eloquent writer.
        I wish you all the best.
