Butterflies

Birds…&…butterflies…always fascinates me…

Whenever I see a butterfly…few things come to my mind…they are delicate,pretty..&..very free

Haven't seen an ugly butterfly till date…and to actually think…once it was a not so attractive caterpillar …makes me admire nature more…it always reminds one ..the sunny side of life..

I only ask to be free…the butterflies are free…Charles Dickens

This has been my favourite quote for a long time..,I love the way it goes wherever it likes…and pleases wherever it goes..

 

In most of cultures…a butterfly..signifies…a soul…happiness..an ancestor…love

Whatever the belief is…for me butterfly is happiness..!!!

If I could…my ideal place..would be full of pink blooms..&…a whole lot of butterflies…

If only wishes could come true…

I just want to quote Anton Chekov…in nature…a repulsive caterpillar turns into a lovely butterfly…but with humans..it is the other way around….a lovely butterfly turns into a caterpillar …

Now…how true is that..?!..why can't humans be more pleasant,gentle,nice..?

A new day….a new year

 

Sun …this morning….it was so bright…as if to tell me…it will be a bright year ahead..!

He was so bright …I decided I will just take his reflection…which was equally good…

The glaring yellow round …in the clear water of pond…a circle…so eternal…no beginning…no end…!

Irrespective of any ones existence…a force…a power…sun…will always exist..

It is said…one way to be more wiser…is by reflection

Reflect…I did …since morning…an year gone by…so many happenings…some can be avoided..and some..were just meant to happen ..I guess

New year has begun…hope to gather the strength …&…to be brave…to face the next 365 days…

Whatever any one may think…the sun rises …and….sets

He did…this evening …too..!

A day…of the new year is all but over…

Life…is nothing…but the reflection of one's state of mind…

So…just as I saw…the sun's reflection…this morning…in that clear water…with not a single ripple…a flawless reflection…I wish…my mind..will be in a similar state…so …if not flawless…or…perfect…life will atleast be calm..peaceful

 

A pond …for few days..

As dark clouds gather….

Sounds of thunder….

Strong noisy winds…

Then the skies open up…

It rains…&…rains…

The air is cooler…

Grass is greener…

The parched dry pond…fills up

 

As the storms pass on…the rains stop…

The full pond…now attracts many birds…

The gregarious lapwings …first to arrive

 

How many days…is it going to last..

Only the bright sun can say…

This sandpiper…looks like …is thinking exactly…what I'm thinking

Let me enjoy..till it lasts…!

Because …in few days…this oasis…will vanish…

And so will these barn swallows…and the rest…

And…so will my lovely evenings…
