My Choice

I have the choice
The choice to stay at home
The choice to clap my hands or ring a bell
The choice to light a lamp or show a lit torch
But I have to be blessed
With that frame of mind
To join in a community demo
Creating sound, light and amity
Or sit in meditation
Letting my eyelids flutter soundlessly
My fingers joined in mudras
Letting the light of my soul
Shine through my eyes
Illuminating the world
A world full of peace, hope and felicity
I have the choice!46E0D456-BC3F-4964-A38D-4585B05AF737

About padmum

You could call me Dame Quixote! I tilt at windmills. I have an opinion on most matters. What I don't have, my husband Raju has in plenty. Writer and story teller, columnist and contributer of articles, blogs, poems, travelogues and essays to Chennai newspapers, national magazines and websites, I review and edit books for publishers and have specialized as a Culinary Editor and contributed content, edited and collaborated on Cookbooks. My other major interest used to be acting on Tamil and English stage, Indian cinema and TV. I am a wordsmith, a voracious reader, crossword buff and write about India's heritage, culture and traditions. I am interested in Vedanta nowadays. I am now an Armchair traveller/opinionator/busybody!
