Morning lights

the anger

In the wind

Is not there

Anymore

The storm 

Has passed

There is 

Joy in the wind

As she giggles

And the chimes

Ring…

A sparrow chirps

As it turns along

With a wind turner

White blossoms…

Sway & dance

Along with wind…

After a long night

As sun appears

Bringing in

Mellow yellow..

On a morning…

In February ..

A day…

Has just

Begun…

In all

It’s glory



A poem

Purple

One can like it…one can hate it…but one colour which no one can ignore is the colour purple

It is bold,regal,strong,and an aura about it…

When there is a hue of purple in a colour palate …the other colours some how looks dull

Mauve…lavender…violet …many hues…of the purple

A week Back…had purple staring at me from different corners in the balcony …and a purple sun bird flew in too…

Although I couldn't photograph in the balcony…got a pic of him on a near by bush…

Purple..a colour I love…to see only in nature…and never on me…

A shade…which I intentionally avoid in my wardrobe …as I find it too bright..

 

 

 

A wild flower…some how has landed in a pot in balcony

 

 

 

 

This is an amazing bunch of flowers…purple ,yellow,white..all in a single plant

 

The stunning purple sun bird

 

Purple…always attractive…

 

Subtlety

Sometimes….as the sun sets in the west…the other side…takes on a different hues…

The colours…so subtle…elusive …& so light …pleasant…

There is that light pinkish hue..which covers the skies…the sea…everything looks alike…

The silence…the serenity …the peace…as the day ends….has a very calming effect…

Oranges…yellows…reds…take a back seat…

 

All one needs…are the subtle colours…to soothe a stressed mind

 

 

 

 

Being subtle….sometimes is good..,

 

Group of fish

An evening…at sea shore…is always relaxing …

And ocean never ceases to amaze you…each time one finds something new,interesting…

It could be just a tiny shell…or a migrant wader…or just the colour of the waves…

Or like this evening…we saw a sort of fish dance…

Hundreds of them…in different group …swimming together…in one direction…suddenly jump out…& in a second they go in too…

This in proper scientific way is called schooling or shoaling…

Although no one knows the real reason…it is said …that it could be just a social gathering…spending the late evening..or they may be trying to evade the predator…

 

Whatever the reason is ….it is a sight to behold…the symmetrical ripples in the dark blue evening sea…that delicate lilting sound of the splash they create…

Tried to get few good shots…but quite tough….

 

 

They jump back immediately..

 

And all that is left…are those blue ripples…

Fish marks…??!!!

 

May be

 

Sky full of teals

It is more than 2 months…since we visited goa…one morning…when we went for a drive through the country side…near a small village ..at lotulim town…we saw a lake full of teals…never had I seen such huge group….

Whether they just floated…or they just flew in groups …that sound of the wings…or their calls…it was so very noisy…chaotic…

But…strangely…the chaos was soothing …

Here are a few pics…

 

 

 

 

 

 

It was teals…everywhere …skies..water…& on land…midst those grass …

A sight…may be …rare…& just by chance

 

An evening…& a lot of seagulls…

The winter months…in oman…attracts lot of migrant birds…

 

And…one evening…we found a sea of seagulls…covering the entire length of the shore…

It was late evening…and by 6 …as the sun set…they all flew out in groups..pairs…alone…to wherever they would rest at night..,and these are some pics…as the light changed…and it was dark…

At around 4.30pm

 

By 5.30 they started flying out…

 

 

 

 

 

The last group….

 

And…this was a family of sooty seagulls…decided to stay …may be waiting for the fishing boats…and the nets…and for an easy catch..,

 

It was all quiet now…except for the swooshing of those frothy waves….
