Dragonflies 

One late night..

When skies had open up…

No thunder…

No lightening…

Just the falling rain…

At one pace…

As I sat with my cup of late night chocolate…

Noticed…this pair of dragonflies…

On twigs of table roses…

Directly under those raindrops…

They seem to be asleep …

Not seem to be bothered…about the cold rain…

So much at peace…

Can we ever be like this creatures….

Pink flowers

As far as I remember…

My ideal world is pink…

A colour so soothing…it just radiates happiness…

There are colours…& then there is pink…

In a meadow…of wildflowers…each of those flowers are pretty…but I always pick up a bunch of pink flowers..

Anything is possible with sunshine…& a bit of pink…a quote I read…

And I agree with that!

I always dreamt of having garden full of flowers…& more of pink flowers

And some of it has come true…

Yesterday morning …I just felt like taking pics of pink flowers in our terrace garden …

I was surprised myself…that there were so many…

More the merrier…
And when there is pink everything looks beautiful…
Pink is love..

Pink is happy…

Pink is real…

Pink is healthy…

Pink is my soul colour …

Pinks on my terracea bunch of pink flowers…is all I need..to be at peace

Bean flower

A garden big or small…is a joy…& one learns to appreciate the little things…it offers…

A morning I saw a long bean vine…with many flowers…they were all in different stage of blooming…

I just took pics in my iPhone ..& later as I saw them…I felt it was like watching different moods of that pretty mauve flowers…

Some random thoughts …

A photo blog…of an ordinary flower..little joys….

Inside woods

Mornings…..inside forests….are just not beautiful ….

Can be very different too…

The sunlight thro those tall trees…the overnight raindrops …sparkling…the chill misty breeze…passing by…and a mix of so many bird calls…

Chaotic …but strangely peaceful…

Gaurs staring at you…with that expression…why now?

Langurs…amused…but seem to be not really bothered…

A waterbed with many water birds …

As we watched…an huge Python …having eaten something overnight….struggling to glide…roll ..out of water …then slowly disappearing into the thick vegetation…

Birds relieved he/she has gone…

But I just wondered…what if we step on it on the forestfloor…it just looks like a lifeless log!

Forests are serene…but woods makes one realise….how nature can be very complicated ….

Anything can happen…inside those deep forests

A morning in Bandipur forests

A soul satisfying flower called rose

A rose…is a rose….is a rose

Said Bard….& he was & he will be always right!

When a rose blooms in the garden….all other flowers…pale in comparison

It isn't fair to other flowers yes…. But rose is a flower which stands out effortlessly …unintentionally ….

It is a season of roses in our terrace garden….

Reds…oranges…yellow….peach….pinks….

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Many words have been written …

Many quote are there…

Many poems about roses are found…

 

But this morning …I found these words…which are absolutely ….perfect…

 

A rose is an argument …

It proclaims….the triumph of beauty over brutality…

Of gentleness over violence …

Of the ephemeral over the lasting …

Of the universal over the particular …

The same rose bursts into bloom in Bangalore ( I changed the city name)…

And elsewhere …..

Quote by Alain Meilland

Such apt words …..

 

I would simply say ….do yourself a favour… Grow a rose…& feel good!

This post is for @vijayashankara….who loves roses

 

Random thoughts

 

 

Birds…..

Are eternally free….

We…

Caged….

Forever ….

 

Why is it so…I often think…

Many answers…

But the one I believe….

Birds…live on their own terms…not answerable to any one….to each his/her own…

Not so with us…we live in a mayhem called society…

Try whatsoever ….we can't break the shackles….somehow somewhere we get stuck!

Whenever I see a bird floating high up in those blue skies…a persistent thought…is

I wish I could do that….

To be free…
