F(r)amed Fruit

Here hangs a mango, neatly framed

As the King of Fruits, it is highly famed

Starts out green, grows in sheen

Gathers mass without pause

Round and fleshy it slowly turns

And soon a fiery yellow it burns

Now, a parrot or squirrel might get to it first

If you wanna beat ’em show some zest

Even When You Face a Wall

P1000164 2.jpg

Even when you face a wall,

Remember there is life

You can grow, blossom and give out fruits…

Possibilities plenty—

Change your path, Go over the hurdle, or Break the block…

May every wall spur action!

 

Note: When I see this fresh tree, full of life, in front of the mossy, dilapidated wall, I feel the contrast and the endless possibilities in life. Hence the poem above!

 

A Small Presence

A rose

Strikes a pose

I stop mid-stride

Absorbing the loveliness, bonafide

A small presence

Making a big difference 

In the dreary surrounding

Standing as a blessing

Oh beholder, take care

To see benevolences that stare!

‘Ghostly’ Cat Takes Shape ;)

On a trip to a beach resort, I saw a cat walking on a roof, intending to climb a tree close by.

My son is extremely fond of cats, and I wanted to take some photos to show him. But then, I failed to focus properly and the result was a series of ghostly images. However, I liked them quite a bit and hence sharing!



One Little Bird

You come to the tree

and twitter away

Exhibit some spirit

and hold me in sway

You jump about

With restless energy

And commune with your mate

in complete synergy

Watching you every morn

And hearing your song

Gives me joy

All day long
