Day 20. Dancing Heads

Pieces of sand or dust

with a spring serving as spine

painted with red, black and white

they dance in front of our eyes

serving a purpose

that even they don’t know

they don’t quit smiling

even on a knock out blow

Dancing heads on a dashboard

no idea where they will lead

Nodding their heads, Riding on ford

They trust the pilot behind the wheel

Aren’t we like those dancing heads

waiting for rest, until we crash

Bumping and shaking in a ride called life

Living with proud on edge of a knife.

  1. These are called talai-aati bommai — head-shaking dolls and they are from my father’s home town. 🙂 So happy to see your poem here about them….and to say we too are like them — shaking and smiling as the road of life takes us here and there. I pray to have as much faith in my pilot and to keep smiling all along the way. 🙂 thanks Vivek for your beautiful words. 🙂

  3. There are, of course, some unfavorable factors to freelancing.
    One important level is that should you work as a freelance paralegal you will not be eligible for the varieties of advantages that you would have in working for a legislation agency or a non-public attorney.

    If you happen to feel that such “perks” as basic health insurance and other such benefits are essential, freelancing wont offer you these benefits.

  4. Well like Mommy said, once we love each other and love the world that Jesus died for,
    that?s a type of worship. When we think about God and listen to the sermon or in Sunday School,
    that?s a method of worshipping as a result of we are learning how great
    God is and He likes that. Or once we sit round
    and inform each other what the best issues about God
    are. You understand how a lot you like hearing people say how smart or cute you boys are?
    Well God likes after we discuss collectively about how
    great he is.? Daddy answered.
