“Creativity takes courage”

I was going to write today about my nostalgic feelings after watching the movie Rocketman as it brought back so many of my childhood memories. This man Elton John, who brought so much of happiness to people’s life through his music, was actually suffering and was never loved. It made me very sad and inside me I was sad and was reading every article and information that I could get on Elton John.

“The function of art is to struggle against obligation” 

There’s a period where you suffer through and then a period where you compose yourself and express it so its out of your system and today exactly that’s what my plan was, until!!!!

I read a post on my facebook which one of my friend posted it about another Kathakali artist whom I know as well. This friend is an artist besides a tech professional and often goes to India and within Bay Area to perform Kathakali, an art that originates from Kerala. Originates doesn’t mean that you own and no one else can learn and master it or be creative with an art.

The post that was shared was from 2016, however this friend shared it now and apparently I know the artist about whom they posted about is from northern India and loves Kathakali form of art and he learned and he performs all over the world. Part of his performance he has achieved lot of name and fame for his performances and he has got lot of rewards and one of them is from the Ministry of India as well.

“Art is not always about pretty things. It’s about Who we are, What happened to us, and How our lives are affected” ~ Elizabeth Broun 

When I read it was about this person getting the Ministry award and bunch of Kerala folks criticizing the artist and claiming that he is not doing Kathakali but something else.
I mean a form of art no matter where it originates, but if someone else masters it how can you get jealous? How can you not promote the artist for loving your art and appreciate his effort? Thats basic human instinct! But you being an artist yourself? How can you not support your fellow artists no matter whether you know them or not… they are artist and what I believe is true artist they always support other artists. Because they know the effort that one has to put in and in return they don’t get much other than appreciation.

“The job of an artist is to offer a sanctuary of beauty to an ugly world.” ~ Jeff Goins

I was really disappointed to see something like this shared in social media.
Why can’t we human be human and not be jealous and selfish?

Disappointing!

Adios to this day!

 

As the day is setting in,
So is the poetry month,
Been a ridiculously fun,
Yet a challenging turn in,
It was good to wind up here,
Than carrying it along inside,
Enjoyed the journey of poetry,
Thanks for supporting,
From Sun to Moon to the nature
Inspiring to keep up the game,
Sometimes it was for them and
Sometimes they were for me
A beautiful relation we live together,
Adios to this day with the hope,
For many more Dawns to come 😉

My Love!

 

I was waiting eagerly for him,
Sometimes I blamed it on the clouds,
They must be hiding him from me,
Or sometimes wondering if it’s him,
I ignored this time as I can’t take the stress,
If he really loves me he has to prove it,
And yes, I was stubborn and determined too,
But then, impatience creeped in and started looking for him,
To my surprise I saw something that I thought to be streetlight,
But naughty him, was trying to trouble me,
Disguising himself and fitting right in between the leaves,
The apple of my heart was right there with promising nights!

The suspension bridge that connects everyone!

 

The suspension bridge of San Francisco,
The pride when see from that far on the plane,
Makes home so beautiful with value and love,
The one mile wide bridge that connects the bay,
The wonders of the modern world at San Francisco,
Taking off from this place where many wants to land,
For the liberal and humanistic approach at this city that I live in,
The one that was once the longest and tallest in the world,
The orange vermilion color stands out no matter how far, or foggy it is,
Always the pride of home that’s Golden gate for you all 😉
~ Dawn

Perspective!

 

Houses and high rised buildings,
Sign of a progressive nation,
Flyovers and bridges become monuments,
Billions spent over there to keep the name and fame,
Different sizes and shapes, different heights and lengths,
All these and yet homelessness everywhere,
A perspective on earth that would make you think…!

The selfless love ❤️

 

The selfless love you get from them,
Is just that you also can’t repay them,
No one else, but them misses your presence,
And the touch, the feel, the warmth all in one,
It’s the expression of love and missing,
Somewhere we have a connection with,
That’s why we don’t speak but share same feelings,
Who says love is blind? It’s an expression,
It needs to be expressed whether someone returns it or not,
Care more for them as they don’t yell or abuse you,
They can’t even share their pain with you,
Love them for they don’t give you anything other than love 💕
~ Dawn

Home is where your loved ones are!

 

Home is where your heart is,
Home is where you’re content,
Home is where your loved ones are,
Home is where someone is waiting for you,
Home is where you live because,
A visit and a visitor always have a timeline 😉
I also had to meet the timeline,
In three days had to come back,
With results, plans and timelines,
Three days gave me attachments with team,
Yet longing with my loves ones,
True, Home is where your loved ones are…
And they are there and here too !
