Take Care of Nature

20180323_114225

Nature has many moods

It rains when it cries

Shines when it smiles

Storms when it rages

And erupts when furious

Quakes when it’s repulsed

Thunders when it argues

Snows when it’s aloof

And breezes when content

It dries up when helpless

And floods when baffled

If we keep nature in a good mood

We can enjoy rest, air, water, and food

Else nature has forceful ways

To decimate all without trace…

The Five Senses

20190504_0735402972544288240757293.jpg
Just a collage for the five senses

The cuck-koo of the koel
The chirp-chirp of the sparrow
Sounds that assuage
Many a little sorrow

The blue of the skies
The cobalt of the sea
Sights that lift
Many a broken spirit

The aroma of flowers
The fragrance of wet soil
Smells that soothe
Many a troubled mind

The sweet of fruits
The crunch of nuts
Tastes that nourish
Many a fatigued palate

The cool of a soft breeze
The feel of a warm sun
Touches that enliven
Many a dead hope

It is Dusk

A bird is back

To stop in its nest

It is dusk

Time to rest

A hush steals in

The sky turns golden

It is dusk

Come to soothen

Darkness descends

The world shuts down

It is dusk

Your oats… are sown!

‘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!



Earth Day

A ‘mogra’ plant has sprouted several buds.

 

What does Earth Day mean to me?

I pondered over it an entire day

 

If I can feel or establish

A connect with earth

Then every day would be Earth Day

Not just for me, but for everyone

 

Having a terrace garden of my own

With a few flowering plants and herbs

I had a chance to observe

At close quarters

The behaviour of plants.

And it is helping me

Develop an intuition

About their condition.

 

“Why are the leaves yellow?

What are ants doing on this plant?

How come water is draining away?

When will this bud bloom?”

 

I have activated a connection

That can deepen

And help me scale and work out

Self vis-a-vis Earth

Have you thought about You vis-a-vis Earth?
