Hold fast to dreams

For if dreams die

Life is a broken-winged bird

That cannot fly.

Hold fast to dreams

For when dreams go

Life is a barren field

Frozen with snow.

Relationships are like birds…

Relationships are like birds,

if you hold tightly they DIE

If you hold Loosely, they FLY

But if you hold with care,

They remain with you forever.



The Soul – Bird

O world-ignorance,
You have shackled my feet, 
I am free.

You have chained my hands, 
I am free.

You have enslaved my body, 
I am free.


I am free because I am not of the body.
I am free because I am not the body,
I am free because I am the soul-bird
That flies in Infinity- Sky.
I am the soul-child that dreams
On the Lap of the immortal King Supreme.

Sri Chinmoy

Birds Flying in Line With Feathers So Fine

Five blue birds sitting in a tree,
The first bird said, “Look what I see.”
The second bird said, “Look what I see.”
The third bird said, “Their feathers are so fine.”
The fourth bird said, “Quick, let’s fly away!”
The fifth bird said, “No, let’s all stay.”
Then a black bird said, “Let’s win!”
“Join us, and we’ll be ten.”

Well, all the birds flew together
In all kinds of weather.
Through the blue sky,
All ten would fly.
Till own brith summer day,
the blue birds in the tree did stay.
The black birds kept flying in line,
Leaving their new friends to pine.
Once again they were five and five!
