A Person Lost Within Me ..

 A dedication to all the words that cross your mind during dark days. A dedication to your endless reluctant and hesitant tries to console yourself, to the hopes developed out of the most hopeless situations, and to yourself when you really were by the wrath of time.
                When at the end it is between YOU and Yourself….

A person lost within me, Call her name she might respond.

A person lost within me ,call her name she might respond,
Tell her she has a home, she might look beyond,

Tell her bad days always pass,
Tell her bad dreams don’t last,
Tell her its not always the night,
And at the end the sun will rise,

Tell her the Aayah as she may please,
“Indeed with every difficulty there is ease” (Al Qur’an 94:6)
Tell her there is a cure for every pain,
And an apology for each disdain,

Tell her it’s all up to you,
Just to test what you do,

‘You might stay firm and let the storm move past,
or You may loose yourself and depart with the storm at last.’

The painting used in this post was just a random painting that caught my attention in my college library and later on I found it to be one hell of a perfect interpretation with reference to my context.
It is by an artist named Haroon ben Abid .I find this painting, the vibrant colors, the true artistic virtues, the expressions and the silent message it gives .. all very deep and impressive.
You can check out his other paintings and sketches at his Facebook page linked below.

Coincidental Warmth

So it has been a year since I started blogging or I guess even a few months more than that.
Initially I was kind of regular in writing and updating things but eventually due to shortage of time I just couldn’t. Now I visit this blog not much frequently and I post just occasionally.

From day one it was just kind of a coincidence that whatever I used to write or paint/sketch was somehow related to the Writing or Photo Challenges.
And since then it has been a series of consecutive coincidences .. Whatever I write or draw is linked to the Weekly Challenges.
I like it this way 🙂

This time I am just flashing back at one of my previous sketches. Again a sunset because sunsets are simple and the best indication of warmth, beauty, hope, determination and diminishing disappointments.
The idea behind this sketch was just the glory of mother nature .. a huge tree and that’s it. Simple and short.

But in the process I eventually started adding yellow, red and orange .. finally making it a sunset again.

In the making ….
Fianlly ....
Fianlly ….

Yeah …  so fond of making sunsets.
