love shouldn’t be mediocre
don’t waste your time on anything
that isn’t soul deep.. passionate..
heart wide open love
life is too short for mediocre
when you are here to experience
to the depths of your being

“In your light I learn how to love; In your beauty how to make poems...”Rumi “Pseudo” A poem by Soni Shalini( copyrights reserved)
PSEUDO.... World has drastically changed its course guys,
Changing the stream of our core values ——-. Today we do not need validation of God, parents and peers for our achievements,
We sit for approval of our so called social media friends.——— We shout, I am insecure, I need your reaction for what I am doing.
And what next, we keep on posting our non authentic life to impress others——
Keeping keen eye on responses,
hastily, switching on and off our cellphones——
Cool posts and kind comments make our day,
Anything unfavourable breaks us into pieces——
We are naive enough to understand, how fake these may be,
Looking shiny from above, maybe blank and bleak from within——-
This is nothing but irony of our present day living,
Poor we disregard our authentic life for a fake existence——-
Today, life , happiness, growth , image and status are our social media feeds,
We have given it ample power to build and break us——- We need to know, stories, quotes and comments are not conversation,
Just an invitation to change other’s perception——-
We ignorant humans don’t realise,
And go on and on misleading our authentic lives——-
Know that Life, much greener is waiting on the other side,
A life of wholeness, a life of authenticity
A life full of creativity, ingenuity and infinite wealth... by Soni Shalini ( copyrights reserved)

Here we’re sitting, into the fire they’re spitting but calls for more wood on deaf ears fall soothing the limber timbers fears of settling sparks burrowing between their furrows and purveying to us larks on down below from where we watch their glow and consider what it would take for the towers to wither and burn. The way the branches reach up and around and churn. From down here we’re wheezing pushed back by the breathing of her roar yet enthralled when the tambour does sore our finger itching from the gasoline pour. Now it goes low and that line we tow sinking low and drinking in the peppered glow. I’ve had enough now and I’m gonna sleep, how: curl on up and settle my but in a hammock drinking in the fires breath and dream of bannock.

e, invece, ci siamo

Been on a bit of a creative hiatus since writing and releasing my zine. It’s something I’ve wanted to do for a long time and now it’s finally done!
It’s been one of the funnest and also scariest things I’ve published because it’s so from the heart and everyone reacts to things differently. I never really planned much of it, I kind of just pieced it together from bits and bobs. It’s called Soup 🍵
I’ve sent it to some people I appreciate (asking around for people’s adresses is a lil bit creepy, I’ve realised) but now I’ll have it available to anyone who might be interested. If you’d like one, send me a dm and I’ll pop it in the mail to ya xx

We dream through the night,
We leave in early mornings,
We arrive in the evening at a new land,
And we open our room's window towards west,
Basking in the warm glow
Midst the coldness of faraway land,
And then once again during night
We wonder about the early light
Falling on the curves of this new land
We've arrived in.
And then comes the second morning,
When we wake up to realise
The dream has turned into reality,
We stare at what's been presented to us,
The gift of the Gods,
Laid in front of his children.
And that's the act of travel,
Taking you not only from point A to point B,
But taking you from within,
To the reality of your dreams.

By His mighty hand he is able to calm the storm
While being gentle enough to hold us when we're torn
He commands the lightning to strike where he desires
It’s the power of the Lord which he admires
But his mind is now in a state of confusion
Reminded by a statement in its conclusion
The ruler of this world waits for him to curse your holy name
Despite his own abject circumstances you remain the same
He lays his requests to you and waits expectantly
And you heal him from his suffering so insistently
The wind sings its song of praise to Yahweh
The ripples of the sea expresses His agape
In His truth we may remain rooted like the trees of the earth
In His grace we can finally experience a life of joyful rebirth
He has never relinquished from you His promise
But persists in supplying you with a feeling of solace
