August supermoon

I see her each month…

Full..bright …big…pristine…& beautiful

 

Each time I think…this must be the most beautiful moon …I have seen!

 

But…no…next time ..it will be more prettier…more perfect…

 

For now..I would like to believe…the best supermoon …I have seen until now…

 

 

 

 

May be that is her way of saying…

Look at me tonight…

 

And remember me

 

Till I return next month…

 

A bit better perhaps …

 

A beauty…that is soothing…and feel good…

 

Birds

Happiness….is birds….

A bird is such a feel good sight..,

Is it the colours…is it their songs…so it their flight?

To be free…to fly wherever you want…whenever you want…far away from everyone ..to just be in ones own world…with winds blowing on to your face..

They are so blessed…,

I often see birds..,this post is for birds in and around bangalore…

In that chaos of the city life …in a way bangalorean's are blessed to have lots of greenery…woods quite near to city…& thus attract lots of birds..

These are just few birds…there are lot many more…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Emily Dickinson 's words about birds are my favourite …

I hope you love birds too…

It is economical

And it saves going to heaven

 

See a bird…listen to it…& feel better

 

Occupying!

It is just not humans…who go and occupy some other country…by force..& against the will of the citizens…

It happens in bird world too…

Had heard stories about cuckoo bird ,laying eggs in a crow's nest,& unknowingly the crow looks after them as their own until the young ones hatch…

Got a chance to watch a pair of munias ..a type of finch…trying to occupy a weaver bird's nest…

The baya weaver makes one of the most beautiful intricate nest,with lot of hard work..

Compared to them munias are smaller in size…but they were such bullies…

 

 

 

 

We didn't stay for long to see what happened …

Although… I sincerely hope…the munias failed…

Yeah…

Someone's home…nest… Is solely theirs…

Lot of hard work…love..emotions go into it…

Occupying some one's home…land…is a big NO….

 

 

Butterflies

Like….flowers…the beauty of butterflies is free too…

They live only for few days…but spread joys…

There is no sight better than …a pretty colourful butterfly fluttering…trying to sit on a flower…or just floating so effortlessly in air…

Happiness …is a butterfly….

 

Wild…free…pretty…there should be a bit of butterfly in all of us…

Be joyous…& spread joys

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bangalore is full of butterflies…bees…wasps ….

A blessing

 

Wildflowers

Some of the ….best things are free…

And the bestest among the best….has to be…flowers…birds…butterflies….

This post is about the wildflowers …I saw during my last trip in and around bangalore….

Flowers are beautiful…but wildflowers are more than beautiful…

The fact that one finds them in the most unexpected places…makes it more special …

Those delicate textures…the soft colours…the subtle fragrances..wafting through the winds in the woods..and the little one peeping through tall grass…is indeed a sight…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

How much ever…all looks confusing…chaotic…somehow the wildflowers blooms…bringing in the much needed little joys

 

Amidst the mountains

When I feel like I'm stressed…confused…I prefer going into mountains…

Once there…something calms you…

There is lot of answers in that dead silence…

You feel better…

The songs of the tiny mountain birds….the pretty wildflowers …their scent filling up the mountain air..

The fresh water streams…the cold water as it flows…on the tiny pebbles…that musical sounds…little fishes…swimming…& when you put your feet into that…it is an instant therapy…

Then the changing lights…& the changing colours…it is a different world out there…

 

 

 

 

As I always believe…

When you wanna feel better….go to that heaven…& it is called mountains
