Words scrawled across the skies

I took this picture when I had visited Rameshwaram recently and it seemed like the perfect backdrop for this poem.

Glide away...

This journal from Matrikas is quite possibly the best journal I've seen. Since the day I received it, I haven't been able to stop looking at it fondly, it is that beautiful and captivating. It has these therapeutic colouring pages that can immediately calm you down or add a spark to a lazy monotonous work day.
They come in four colours with four different motifs on the top and I opted for this dark blue one with the gliding fish and the word 'glide' incorporated into the gold embossed motif. Thank you Matrikas, this is a kick-ass product and I can't stop raving about it.  Purchased a few more from Amazon.in to give as gifts to friends. This is the reddish one with a feather embossed on it and the words 'write' scrawled nearby. This is the pretty dragonfly greyish journal with the word 'fly' at the tip. And here's another look at my favourite one, love this navy blue colour and the pretty fish with tail and fins like angel wings... gliding through…

'Cause you're my love, he replied softly.

And the Saviour’s Presence runs deep in this man,
So deep, that whenever he is near I am filled with peace.

It’s unexplainable, this effect he tends to have
He makes us aware of the same Divine Presence within us.
I acutely realize how fortunate I am to know him and call him a friend.
He has revolutionized our church, turned it into a second home 
Where friends and family converge often to make it what it is today;
A place buzzing with activity, goodwill and positive vibes.
Truth be said it is his energy and zeal buzzing in all of us 
Making us come alive to the magic of being.

Part of this magic of existence is change, evolution - law of nature;
It is inevitable, we will ha…
