The Alchemy of Writing

A pen knows the language of the land.
One dipped in soul, activates many…

Writer is an artist with a form–
that sings with the music of heart
and flows fearlessly on the canvas of imagination
Writing can be as subtle as the breath…
and as literal as the word.

What’s even more magical is the shape-shifting of creative writing
When a soul’s longing transforms itself
in word, on paper, in print,
travels readily across the oceans, infects the field,
meets another eye, ear and heart–
shifts back into fire, water, spirit–
rekindles many souls and the earth…
and hibernates to be rediscovered in future…

Writing is alchemy
Its an ancient discipline of transforming
unformed emotions into shining words
After each para… I am born anew

Writing is healing
It channels wounds
A secret passage for tears and scars
To find their salvation

Writing is a great sacred ritual
When I write, I am dancing with my soul
With the discipline of a samurai
and surrendering of a devadasi

Do I write or am I written…
By the great pen of life
Filled with deeply felt experiences
On the paper called humanity

All arts are great expressions
Soul yearning a creative from
Writing is special for here the masterpiece
Is the writer himself (herself)!

Free the Artist within…

You know what…WIP (Manish)
Lets free the artist within!
For all art surfaces from the heart.
Lost song of our undocumented parts.

Art is nothing but the expression of fearless love.
And Artist is none other than the one,
who takes risk and dives deep in his own soul…

to make the unseen seen
to name the dare not
to blow the facade
to nurture the unborn

Living on the edges of our collective unconscious,
he sees the contrasts and contradictions
and dies a thousand times
to let the new birth from his heart.
he is the womb and the midwife…

Art is never complete but always whole
And artist is his best work-in-progress…

There is one in you
One in everyone!

Tap into
Step into
Rise upto
The artist in you..
and you will see beauty in your longings
and purpose in your pain

For, if you can liberate a soul
You are an artist!
