- My heart will never be free, To push aside the longings I still feel, My eyes will never forget, The fields of patchwork green Soft rain so real, In my dreams I keep searching For those paths I never find........... There're many suspenses,sorrows,surprises stored for the next minute in this world. Meeting you is also one such surprise i hope. I'm embarking on a journey with a hope on this surprise springing world. I believe that there are many pleasant surprises in store for your future.......!! ALSO I VERY MUCH LIKE, LOVE THESE LINES OF ROBERT FROST...WONDERFULL LINES....... "The woods are lovely, dark, and deep.., But I have promises to keep.., And miles to go before I sleep.., And miles to go before I sleep... !!"

Months passed and one day the head falconer informed the king that though one of the falcons was flying majestically, soaring high in the sky, the other bird had not moved from its branch since the day it had arrived.
The king summoned healers and sorcerers from all the land to tend to the falcon, but no one could make the bird fly. He presented the task to the member of his court, but the next day, the king saw through the palace window that the bird had still not moved from its perch. Having tried everything else, the king thought to himself, "May be I need someone more familiar with the countryside to understand the nature of this problem." So he cried out to his court, "Go and get a farmer."
In the morning, the king was thrilled to see the falcon soaring high above the palace gardens. He said to his court, "Bring me the doer of this miracle."
The court quickly located the farmer, who came and stood before the king. The king asked him, "How did you make the falcon fly?"
With his head bowed, the farmer said to the king, " It was very easy, your highness. I simply cut the branch where the bird was sitting."
We are all made to fly -- to realize our incredible potential as human beings. But instead of doing that, we sit on our branches, clinging to the things that are familiar to us. The possibilities are endless, but for most of us, they remain undiscovered. We conform to the familiar, the comfortable, the mundane. So for the most part, our lives are mediocre instead of exciting, thrilling and fulfilling.
So let us learn to destroy the branch of fear we cling to and free ourselves to the glory of flight.

Good one i would like to share
From Jackie Chan's scrapbook for October 2005 i found this
"While going through some of the fan mail we receive, I came across a poem that I particularly liked. It was written by a lovely woman named Haarsha, who lives in South Africa. I wanted to share it with you - I'm sure you'll like it as much as I do!
Wandering through the thickets of challenges
I saw a light at the end of the dark forest
The vines broke loose, the earth cleared a path
For me to make my way to bathe in its warm rays
The light gave to me warmth without asking
It changed the way I see, and the way I live
Oh so grateful my soul has become that now
Without it asking, I shall give sincerely indeed
What will a light need? What does a light need?
What can I give it? How can I make it brighter?
So what if it will not see my earnest attempts?
So what if it knows not of my appreciation?
My heart, with every beat will sing its praise
My every breath will nourish it with hope
My eyes will always look into the light
And fill its soul with every ounce of love I have within
It's a promise I have made willingly
It's a promise I will keep faithfully
It's a promise to the oblivious light
A promise made with love and sincerity
A promise, the light will know not the value of,
A promise so precious to me none the less,
That, which will remain in my soul, even
Until the day I meet with the angels in heaven.
By Haarsha Balraj, 25 April 2004,
Johannesburg, South Africa"

அவைநேரே இன்றெனக்குத் தருவாய் -
என்றன் முன்னைத் தீயவினைப் பயன்கள் -
இன்னும் மூளா தலிந்த்திடுதல் வேண்டும் -
இனி என்னைப் புதிய உயிராக்கி -
எனக் ஏதும் கவலையறச் செய்து -
மதி தன்னை மிகத்தெளிவு செய்து -
என்றும் சந்தோசம் கொண்டிருக்கச் செய்வாய் ...
தோலை வலிவுடைய தாக்கி -
உடற் சோர்வும் பிணி பலவும் போக்கி -
அரிவாளைக் கொண்டு பிளந்தாலும் -
கட்டு மாறா உடலுறுதி தந்து -
சுடர் நாளை கண்டதோர் மலர்போல் -
ஒளி நண்ணித் திகழும் முகம் தந்து -
மத வேளை வெல்லும் முறை கூறித் -
தவ மேன்மை கொடுத்தருளல் வேண்டும்.......!!!
