Meraki

Each time you pick up your pen and only truth flows out

Each time you let your paint brush reflect your soul on the canvas

Each time you stir that pot, filling the kitchen with the aroma of pure love

Each time you plant your garden with tenderness

And watch life grow with awe

Each time you let your heart speak with conviction

Each time you immerse yourself in your dreams

Losing yourself so you can find yourself

And drown in the longingness to create-

consumed by your art,

Each time you flow through life

Leaving a bit of your sparkle in all you do

And you the creator become the creation-

You are choosing to create with meraki:

Meraki that makes you unique, meraki that makes history.

When you choose to live life and create

With meraki.

The entire month of April, I am blogging from A2Z powered by #BlogchatterA2Z

    If you spilt Mera Ki, it means ‘What is mine?” in Punjabi. I think your soulful post answers that question too.
