    Sail
    By Bhavya Gogia

    Sailing through the winds,
    My heart stops for a while
    I seem to soar above in heaven
    While the water's pushed behind
    The rumbling of the waves below
    The echo of birds in sky
    Two of us in a boat
    Are leaving the world the behind

    The water is too cruel
    Blue waves as merciless knives
    Cutting through the plants and fish
    Who seem to pay their price
    The underworld is busy
    In the affairs harsh and wild
    Two of us in a boat
    Are leaving the world behind

    We adore our pretty flowers
    And birds come follow flying
    The sun shines on your complexion
    And I have left my crying
    You take the oars while I,
    Sing for you to never sigh
    Two of us in a boat
    Are leaving the world behind

    What would it feel like to leave all that hurts the soul (you) and move forward to where it belongs? Going with the one to whom we belong? The one who is the path and the destination, one who will sail us through this Bhavsagar (ocean of miseries)

    This journey is all yours. You and God, he sails you sing, go on and never weep again. Take along all those things that link you to him, take along your love and gift it to him and finally submit yourself to him ��

    (Today I complete four years on Miraquill ��)

    Call

    By Bhavya Gogia

    My flawed words, my flawed mind
    Intertwining with your perfect smile
    They cause me pain
    I am devoid of all joys
    Prithee come to me,
    Oh wonderful boy
    Oh blue hued one,
    The one who steals jewel like hearts,
    Trace mine too,
    With your feet soft and sweet
    Come end my patience too
    Where I stand, I can't retreat

    My anxiety hurts my mind
    I fall scared and light
    Like a feather detached
    From a bird falls on sight
    Oh God who conquers evil,
    Oh one who set things right
    Come take me away from this dark
    Please lead me to the light
    I don't know a prayer,
    My mind's a big void
    Come make me breathe again
    And paint me red and white*

    I wanna see some peace
    After bitter agony and pain
    I wanna feel a petrichor
    After thunder filled rain
    You are blue like the clouds
    Fall on the barren me,
    Come heal my ailing heart
    Come set my soul free
    I know not another,
    Like yours a sweet friend,
    But all I know is you,
    On you I hence depend

    Prayer of Eight Verses on ShriHari
    By Bhavya Gogia

    The one who is the Holiest, Purest, the Great Father
    Who is the Primeval Lord, The Nurturer and The Primeval Soul;
    Who is the God of the Entire World, Victory be to him who enchants the mind of World,
    Who has Eyes like Lotuses, and who destroys the bonds of World;
    Who is the beloved Husband of the one residing in a Lotus(Kamla- Lakshmi Ma), Who has a navel like a lotus, and who is a youthful boy,
    Who is the Father of Cupid, and who steals the mind of even Cupid!(Cupid is capable stealing the mind of even Great Yogis, but not our Lord's, instead his mind is stolen by our Lord);
    Who is the Lord of My Mind, Who killed the demon Madhu, and who is Very Enchanting,
    Who gives Liberation, Who killed Mura Demon and Who shines in My Heart;
    Who is the friend of Cows/Vedas(Go) and Who in turn is loved by them(Govind Gopriye) Who descended in the form of a cowherd boy/Who descended as the nurturer of Cows,
    Who is loved by the Group of Gopis(Cowherd Damsels), and Who is the Very Purpose of Existence for the Residents of Gokul;
    Who has a black body, and eyes like Moon(Shashi) and Sun(Ravi),
    Who is the elder brother of SheshNaag, and who rides on ShriGarud;
    Who is the Lord Vaasudev (Vaasudev means the Lord who is the indweller of all, every being resides in him) And Who wears a Garland of Vaijanthi Flowers,
    Who bears Vasundhara (the Earth who bears the weight of all, Hari bears such Great Earth on himself as Sankarshan and Varaha), and wears the garlands of Leaves of Vrinda(Tulsi)
    My obeisances to Such Narayana (Narayana means the base/abode of all beings) Who is the best/Supreme Man,
    Who sleeps/rests in Waters(Neer) and Who eliminates the Obstacles of Men.

    Happiest Janamashtami to everyone! ❤️❤️❤️
    The countdown is over now and the birth anniversary of ShriKrishna is finally there! The God who is the heart throb of simple damsels to sophisticated yogis was born on midnight, his deeds are loving and a reservoir of unlimited joy for all beings. His nectarian words inspire every genius out there. To such Bhagwan, I pay my heartfelt obeisances!

    This poem/prayer is a special one in the sense that it contains eight verses and every word in each verse beings from the same letter. Its an older prayer I wrote 2 years back but couldn't post. For this occasion it seemed perfect! However, I couldn't plan a surprise for my little Krishna though he did surprise me by coming to my house in beautiful vigrahas. Oh ShriHari, how would I even bless you? ��

    Prisoner to Fears

    By Bhavya Gogia

    Brimming with love, filled with care
    With arms ready for a heartfelt embrace
    Mind full of thoughts about loving beloved
    With affectionate heart which was true
    Believe me, my Lord, Oh Vaikunth Madhav
    I swear, my feet ran towards you!

    Then halted suddenly, as the waves rushed
    Of thoughts, insecurities and my low deeds
    In my lowly mind, full of fear of the world,
    I was scared to my last breath Oh ShriVishnu
    I stopped myself altogether at your door
    But I swear my feet ran towards you!

    My mind which wonders about your wonders
    About your beauty, your grace and charm,
    About your mercy filled rain cloud persona
    Was then just filled of melancholic blue
    Tears filled my eyes, my heart clasped pain
    But I swear my feet ran towards you!

    My worthless mind which adored bitter ego
    Told me how low I was, I had no standard
    To embrace you Oh Father, it called me bad
    I felt helpless and trapped without rescue
    But before succumbing to my pain and grief
    Believe me, my feet ran towards you!

    Happy Father's Day!

    By Bhavya Gogia

    Dire circumstances when fill me with grief
    There is a haven which provides for relief
    On the arid soil, like pouring showers anew
    Blessing my days, my future, my views
    That's how I feel when I am with you!
    Like the flowers which are nourished bright
    With constant and ample sunlight,
    Like the night which is glorified with moon
    And the welkin with stars obtains value
    That's how I feel when I am with you!
    Pouring wisdom on the barren landscapes
    Of the naive mind and its empty escapes
    You fill the voids incurred by gloomy blues
    With words of worth exuding nectarian truth
    That's how I feel when I am with you!
    When thorns of pain make my heart bleed
    I think about your smile and feel released
    I love you Father, and forever would I do,
    One day I will make you proud of me too,
    Because that's how I feel when I am with you!

    Birthday of Bhagwati
    By Bhavya Gogia

    Sitting on a high branch on the tree
    Which I climbed this morn, I began to think
    The Surprise to present to our Mayya,
    To please her, what should be our gift!?
    I call upon Pitaji whom I find lost in thought
    While he is sitting beneath collecting fruits,
    He looks up and understands my silence,
    While I began to think about his own,
    'We're thinking the same thing, my buddy'
    He answers before my eyelids blink,
    So I jump, he catches me, and we sit there
    Together on the bench, both of us think
    'Dad I am your bud, we need Ma's parrot'
    And both of us turn our gaze at the other,
    'Akhila!' we spring! beaming at the thought
    And I go calling the lil one of my mother!
    Hari smiles as we both come running
    Excited joyously hand in hand,
    "Oh I know, I know what to do" says Akki
    While she picks a stick to draw on sand!
    One after the other, she describes and draws
    While me and Raghav sit as students
    Obediently we listen to my sister, her plan,
    And squirrels gather around for information
    'No time to waste' I take her hands in mine
    Hari nods, as we head to the village market
    "I'll go collect decorations" he goes on own
    While she counts the money in her pocket
    Making purchases from our pocket moneys
    We buy the supplies and head to our cottage
    While Akhila enters from the door cleverly
    I enter the kitchen from a window unnoticed
    I hid the stuff, as they expected from me,
    And the evening of beauty passes by,
    As the clock strikes 5 at dawn, we're awoke
    By ShriRam's voice and his eager eyes
    "Oh! Lets get to work" and our trio heads
    To our work base, the kitchen to say
    With clean hands, we set the groceries atop
    And commence our jobs assigned that day
    While me and Akhila work with food & drinks
    Hari strings the flowers, perhaps decorating
    The room is full of lotus scents and sweets
    And he puts a charm preventing early waking
    "Its 7!" We squeal, Ma wakes and Dad rushes
    To her room beside her being her first wish
    Then he closes her eyes with his blue palms
    We each take her hands, to lead to her gifts
    He slowly opens her eyes, while people rise
    From under the tables adorned with love
    Each of us spark in unison 'Surpriseee!'
    While ShriRaghav gives her a loving hug!
    On the lofty table sits a magnificent cake
    Along with sweets, rasgullas, barfi & halwa
    Relatives bring jewels, presents of all kind
    For our Janak Dulari Kishori Sita Mayya!
    She whose magnanimity knows no bounds
    Is garlanded by the flowers strung by ShriPati
    She beams with joy blessing all with love
    While all hail the beautiful & divine Bhagwati
    ©shrihari_nandini

    So this is a surprise planned by me and my sister Akhilavandana along with our father ShriRaam for the birthday of our Mayya Sita ��

    Do you know how Raghav praised Janaki?
    Akhila narrates it to this way!

    He says,
    "Your name Sītā means the one who has risen from furrow (in Sanskrit).
    In English, I will tell you what each letter signifies. ❤️

    S- Selfless. Your care and selflessness knows no bounds. You accompanied me to the forest without thinking about the dangers lurking there. You always think about my welfare.
    I- Inspiring. Your courage, determination, strength, love, everything about you inspires me and our devotees.
    T- Trusting. You always know that I would be there for you. You did what nobody else can do. Whatever difficult situation you were in, you faced everything and had full faith in me. You believe me and this belief makes me what I am.
    A- Amazing.

    And so we celebrate our Mayya, Bhagwati Sita's birthday to please her and get her blessings ��

    On Mother's Day
    By Bhavya Gogia

    As I began to write something
    On the outstanding woman I call my mother,
    The blank pages give an empty stare
    And fill my mind with huge despair
    Oh she's cool, she's gorgeous no doubt
    She's wise of course and I wanna make her proud
    She gives me love, I will get from none
    And if I know a live goddess, she is the one
    But is that enough, the pages ask me
    The words adoring her are infinitely many,
    But what portion of my self centered heart
    Could I give to her, as she does selflessly?
    To give her something, mere words to say,
    Would be like giving the Sun a ray of light
    To give her a present to show our love,
    Would be showing God, our little might
    Well, one who bothers about my well being,
    Since the day I took my first breath,
    What gifts could I ever give her,
    Which may repay my ever flowing debts?
    As I ponder over my helplessness,
    The blank stares answer back,
    There's 'nothing' you can give to the one,
    Who dedicated her life to selfless love
    When there's no expecting, and only to offer
    The soul becomes like God, they say
    While we reflect on the rarity of such state
    We experience its irony every day!
    Why would I compare a mother to God
    When God's love is called 'motherly' by all
    Why would I think I can repay her love,
    I'd rather stay in the debt forever more,
    Therefore I pray to the almighty today,
    Is to grant her beatitude, all blessedness
    She never grieves, her smile be sempiternal
    And showers perpetual happiness!

    HAPPY HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY TO ALL AMAZING MOMS

    Birthday Boy ShriRam
    By Bhavya Gogia

    The day's arriving, the auspicious one!
    But Oh The Ruling Lord looks fumed
    What did you do or perhaps I
    Even Sita Mayya seems confused
    Well, I know, I did some mess
    But we need to make him smile again
    While Shri Hanuman sings his eulogies
    We sit together to make a plan
    "Look" I say, "like a child,
    His baby face sprouts a pout"
    "And we don't even know why"
    Says Ashu Di, "or what is it about!?"
    One thing leads to another
    And we come upon an idea
    But this would not be easy to hide
    From either Raghav or his Siya
    So we plan to include
    Our Ma in our little plot
    While I execute this, Ashu Di
    Goes about informing the whole abode
    So I enter the chambers of our parents
    And climb to Mayya's lap
    While Raghav sits with his phone
    As if busy on Vaishnav-Chat
    So I quietly exit the room
    After sliding the secret letter to Ma
    And she smiles acknowledging
    And appreciating our idea
    So the day comes, the Navami of Chaitra
    But everyone quietly does daily chores
    Raghav raises an eyebrow, in surprise
    As he keeps staring around and all
    But no one seems bothered
    So he proceeds towards his throne
    Moving with his pout on,
    He picks up his bright blue phone
    But as he sits at the couch
    All the lights go off, it's dark
    Then a glowing figure appears in the middle
    Its Ma, with her lovely charm!
    Her golden glow emanates the room
    As she sings his eulogies with love
    While everyone emerges from the shadows
    Each in a different bright colour!
    We dance and sport and form the scenes
    Beloved to his heart and soul,
    We celebrate and enact upon his Katha,
    While food is served to the lovely God!
    Some fondle him, and decorate his hair
    While some relatives offer a sweet
    Some give presents and elders shower love
    While little children press his Feet!
    ShriRam lights up, his face is brightened
    As Ma Jaanki caresses him along
    He seems impressed and every voice chants
    "Long live our Sweetest Lord!"
    ©shrihari_nandini

    Okay, so this idea most twenty first century devotees like that ShriHari should've a phone and a Vaishnav Chat (app like insta perhaps invented by me ��), so that every Vaishnav, every devotee, could chat with him easily.. So I added this element for fun.
    And, I am not lying ShriRam was really making a face these days... And Sita Ma also looked confused.. So Aarsha Di told me to fondle him, like really he smiles when you give him love filled attention.
    So don't ignore ShriRam today, play with him, love him, worship him, celebrate the day and MAKE HIM HAPPY!

    Pic: My SiyaRam (I called them Raita cuz Ram+Sita= Raita ��)

    Jay ShriHari! Jay ShrimanNarayana!

    Blue Daffodils
    By Bhavya Gogia

    Softly tracing the steps of love
    He traced the terrace of my heart
    He of long arms enchanted
    My lowly life and its every part!
    He gave it purpose, I felt it now
    Waving off my endless sins
    He painted my life in such tints
    Extracted as if from blue daffodils

    Carving off the ugly manifestation
    Of my thoughts, my misfortunes
    He hid every pain under the veil of love
    And resounded my life with lovely tunes
    Until now, with stars and moon
    The empty void, I knew he fills
    But he proved the veracity of mercy
    He, with hue of blue daffodils

    In the bitter nights of November
    He brought forth for me a renewing spring
    With his glow, illuminating my self,
    About his glories, he let me sing
    What's the purpose of bragging my pleasure
    He who felt, would know the thrills
    About the blessings of the one with Feet
    Softer than blue daffodils!
    ©shrihari_nandini

    I received ShriHari first in November, 2017 ��

    Jay ShriHari! Jay ShrimanNarayana!
