Shelter my heart


Shelter my heart with your smile,

Let rays of the hope meet the dove.

No years which matters are force

But light radiating through love.


Shelter my heart with your peace

While  climbing mountains to the top

The path might spread out and release

The calmness embracing the hope. 




What kind of tears
do the wishes face?
Lonely through my space
walk away from fears.


Dancing with the Faith,
singing to the Moon,
smiling always soon
to the Morning mate.


Get embraced by Sun
and washed by the Rain,
out of any Pain,
still Believe and Run.


Questioning the days
answering through nights
to my higher flights,
Wishes get their ways.


New Horizon

Is Winter, is cold and is rain,

Through all our feelings. And nights

Are  coming to paint all the same 

With shadows, by sparks moon on lights. 

Nottinghamshire, UK

Is question, is mind and is hope

Through all our thinking about.

Embracing the faith tight and cope

With life’s answers given to doubt.  

Nottingham , UK

While digging the silence  and mind

I’m striving to see  eyes of truth.

I’m watching through space and regard

All mornings, fountains of   the  youth. 

Dubai, Arab Emirates


Bucharest, Romania

Deva, Romania



I’m stepping



London, UK


I’m stepping to play on my game,

While world from outside answers mind,

Through evenings I’m grabbing the frame

Of questions which hard tie me blind. 

Hunza Valley , Pakistan 


I’m stepping to act on my dreams,

According to plan, worth desired.

The lights from inside caught my fears,

The shadows are playing so wired. 

Nottingham, UK 

I’m stepping  to sit on my table, 

While questions are  digging   my  space

Nor nothing, or all these, together, 

Embrace  me  on peace and relax.

The 26-year-old mother stared down at her son who was dying of 

terminal leukemia. Although her heart was filled with sadness, she also 

had a strong feeling of determination. Like any parent she wanted her 

son to grow up and fulfill all his dreams. Now that was no longer 

possible. The leukemia would see to that. But she still wanted her son's 

dreams to come true. 

She took her son's hand and asked, "Bopsy, did you ever think about 

what you wanted to be when you grew up? Did you ever dream and 

wish about what you would do with your life?" 

"Mommy, I always wanted to be a fireman when I grew up." 

Mom smiled back and said, "Let's see if we can make your wish come 

true." Later that day she went to her local fire department in Phoenix, 

Arizona, where she met Fireman Bob, who had a heart as big as 

Phoenix. She explained her son's final wish and asked if it might be 

possible to give her six-year-old son a ride around the block on a fire 


Fireman Bob said, "Look, we can do better than that. If you'll have your 

son ready at seven o'clock Wednesday morning, we'll make him an 

honorary fireman for the whole day. He can come down to the fire 

station, eat with us, go out on all the fire calls, the whole nine yards! 

And, if you'll give us his sizes, we'll get a real fire uniform made for 

him, with a real fire hat — not a toy one — with the emblem of the 

Phoenix Fire Department on it, a yellow slicker like we wear and rubber 

boots. They're all manufactured right here in Phoenix, so we can get 

them fast." 

Three days later Fireman Bob picked up Bopsy, dressed him in his fire 

uniform and escorted him from his hospital bed to the waiting hook and 

ladder truck. Bopsy got to sit up on the back of the truck and help steer 

it back to the fire station. He was in heaven. 

There were three fire calls in Phoenix that day and Bopsy got to go out 

on all three calls. He rode in the different fire engines, the paramedics' 

van and even the fire chief's car. He was also videotaped for the local 

news program. 

Having his dream come true, with all the love and attention that was 

lavished upon him, so deeply touched Bopsy that he lived three months 

longer than any doctor thought possible. 

One night all of his vital signs began to drop dramatically and the head 
nurse, who believed in the Hospice concept that no one should die 
alone, began to call the family members to the hospital. Then she 
remembered the day Bopsy had spent as a fireman, so she called the fire 
chief and asked if it would be possible to send a fireman in uniform to 
the hospital to be with Bopsy as he made his transition. The chief 
replied, "We can do better than that. We'll be there in five minutes. Will 
you please do me a favor? When you hear the sirens screaming and see 
the lights flashing, will you announce over the PA system that there is 
not a fire? It's just the fire department coming to see one of its finest 
members one more time. And will you open the window to his room? 

About five minutes later a hook and ladder truck arrived at the hospital, 
extended its ladder up to Bopsy's third floor open window and 14 
firemen and two fire-women climbed up the ladder into Bopsy's room. 
With his mother's permission, they hugged him and held him and told 
him how much they loved him. 

With his dying breath, Bopsy looked up at the fire chief and said, 
"Chief, am I really a fireman now?" 
"Bopsy, you are," the chief said. 
With those words, Bopsy smiled and closed his eyes for the last time.

Ridge (Transmogrify)

Night falls on my angles of miss,

Days  burning just trying escape, 

While asking the spring for the bliss, 

While drawing the hope into shape.


The flowers turn round to the life 

The Stars are  dancing with Moon.

Whilst time through squares just flies

Still nothing to bring to the tune.


I am seeking my own on the bridge 

Which drives  to the Sun, far away.

While running to catch  on the ridge

All  senses that kneel me on pray.








Water poem

“Human nature is like water. It takes the shape of its container.”
― Wallace Stevens




“Don’t be ashamed to weep; it’s  right to grieve. Tears are only water, and flowers, trees, and fruit cannot grow without water. But there must be sunlight also. A wounded heart will heal in time, and when it does, the memory and love of our lost ones is sealed inside to comfort us.”
― Brian Jacques, Taggerung



“Water does not resist. Water flows. When you plunge your hand into it, all you feel is a caress. Water is not a solid wall, it will not stop you. But water always goes where it wants to go, and nothing in the end can stand against it. Water is patient. Dripping water wears away a stone. Remember that, my child. Remember you are half water. If you can’t go through an obstacle, go around it. Water does.”
― Margaret Atwood, The Penelopiad


“Anger is like flowing water; there’s nothing wrong with it as long as you let it flow. Hate is like stagnant water; anger that you denied yourself the freedom to feel, the freedom to flow; water that you gathered in one place and left to forget. Stagnant water becomes dirty, stinky, disease-ridden, poisonous, deadly; that is your hate. On flowing water travels little paper boats; paper boats of forgiveness. Allow yourself to feel anger, allow your waters to flow, along with all the paper boats of forgiveness. Be human.”
― C. JoyBell C.


“Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. The river was cut by the world’s great flood and runs over rocks from the basement of time. On some of the rocks are timeless raindrops. Under the rocks are the words, and some of the words are theirs.
I am haunted by waters.”
― Norman Maclean, A River Runs Through It and Other Stories


“Cry. Forgive. Learn. Move on. Let your tears water the seeds of your future happiness.”
― Steve Maraboli


“You never really know what’s coming. A small wave, or maybe a big one. All you can really do is hope that when it comes, you can surf over it, instead of drown in its monstrosity.”
― Alysha Speer


“Until justice rolls down like water and righteousness like a mighty stream.”
― Martin Luther King Jr.



“In one drop of water are found all the secrets of all the oceans; in one aspect of You are found all the aspects of existence.”
― Kahlil Gibran


“Always be like a water. Float in the times of pain or dance like waves along the wind which touches its surface.”
― Santosh Kalwar


“I read once that water is a symbol for emotions. And for a while now I’ve thought maybe my mother drowned in both.”
― Jessi Kirby, Moonglass


“Life in us is like the water in a river.”
― Henry David Thoreau


“Water is the driving force in nature.”
― Leonardo da Vinci


“They both listened silently to the water, which to them was not just water, but the voice of life, the voice of Being, the voice of perpetual Becoming.”
― Hermann Hesse, Siddhartha


“You can’t trust water: Even a straight stick turns crooked in it.”
― W.C. Fields


“All is as if the world did cease to exist. The city’s monuments go unseen, its past unheard, and its culture slowly fading in the dismal sea.”
― Nathan Reese Maher


“You are water
I’m water
we’re all water in different containers
that’s why it’s so easy to meet
someday we’ll evaporate together.”
― Yoko Ono


“Where the waters do agree, it is quite wonderful the relief they give.”
― Jane Austen, Emma


“The places where water comes together with other water. Those places stand out in my mind like holy places.”

“It is the mission of each true knight…
His duty… nay, his privilege!
To dream the impossible dream,
To fight the unbeatable foe,
To bear with unbearable sorrow
To run where the brave dare not go;
To right the unrightable wrong.

To love, pure and chaste, from afar,
To try, when your arms are too weary,
To reach the unreachable star!

This is my Quest to follow that star,
No matter how hopeless, no matter how far,
To fight for the right
Without question or pause,
To be willing to march into hell
For a heavenly cause!

And I know, if I’ll only be true
To this glorious Quest,
That my heart will lie peaceful and calm
When I’m laid to my rest.

And the world will be better for this,
That one man, scorned and covered with scars,
Still strove, with his last ounce of courage,
To reach the unreachable stars!”
― Joe Darion, Man of La Mancha

Surprise me September

There run  through the time

The river of dreams,

While looking  to mine 

All hours to mean.


There flew  through the space 

Nice smiles  from the hope, 

While looking for grace

Of the life to involve.


There comes in the mind

Bouquet of the choices

Which ask for a kind

Of  following  voices. 


Today may I count 

On what should  remember

While jumping the bound.

Surprise me September!
