I feel like the rainbow
with its colourful arch of radiant layers.
I feel like the sunflower
with its ‘smiling’ bright yellow petals.
I feel so mellow
for my heart is overjoyed by words of well-wishers’.
I feel like a strawberry, with its bright red glowing skin;
a bit flushed with the happy rush of the blood;
for the compliments and humbling appreciation
showered on me by one and all around.
I feel like the epitome of calmness;
the calm on a luscious mountain top,
the beauty of the green shades with meandering roads below,
nature’s beautiful creatures and the sounds playing heavenly music,
running water exemplifying the purity of the path it takes.
I feel as fulfilled as a lama would
with the realization and acceptance of all.
Having done the good not for the self
but for the good of mankind, for all.
I feel as special as Niel Armstrong
who reached the moon and back
setting a record, making into the books of history.
I feel grateful like none other
for the love I am getting from everyone around.
I feel free as a bird soaring high in the sky.
