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!


Wild Almond Tree

Walking by the wild almond tree

Looking up to read its secrets

Amidst the bright green leaves

The spreading branches

The numerous nest homes

I felt a strong presence

A support system

Where many lives came and went

One life that stood

As if for eternity

Watching and waiting…

“For what?,”

I left wondering

With a quiet sigh and smile…

Note: this beautiful tree stands at All India Radio, Chennai, along the Bay of Bengal.

Where does a flower grow?!

We usually see flowers growing near the top of a tree.

On a recent shopping trip, I was surprised to see one flower growing right near the base of a tree.

Here it is for you to see – and either feel surprised too or think of times you have seen a similar sight!

Special Days


Blue Sky

Fluffy clouds

Fresh leaves

Strong trunks

A visual

So lovely

Made me

Look up

And smile

And imagine

Idle afternoons


Just staring

Dozing dreaming

Reading thinking

Bird watching

Insect observing

Animal interacting

Special days…
