A summer afternoon

The afternoon is warm….
Sun is at its brightest…
The warm breeze…
Caress my skin…
The home is quiet…
A pair of bulbuls….
Are in a conversation …
As I hear that song of theirs…
As if in tandem…
Sparrows start chirping too…
& the sun birds…join the
Chorus too…
With their melodious …lilting songs…
It was all like a lullaby…
As I was about to fall asleep…
All of a sudden…
A cloud of cicada….
decides to join the party….
Loud…lengthy…high pitched…
But the orchestra seems to be in harmony…
However,whatever…
One feels….
Nature always makes one feel better…!

The feel of the mountains…

 

The light of the sun….waters of the ocean….

The sea breeze….the blue skies….&…the solid Mountains…

Standing in the midst of these…I feel a presence…that is so reassuring…calming…

 

The world is so quiet here…quiet so peaceful…quite so tranquil …

One needs this…solitude…to listen to one's self

 

Because…in the silence…one hears more…everything is clear

One learns to be modest,humble…& also realise how inconspicuous we humans are…!!!

 

To me…mountains…are where gods live…it is where heavens are…

In a place like this…I would willingly waste time…do nothing…just sit and listen..to winds…birds…nature..for…there is so much rapture in this…

 

For…mountains are bliss…

 

Mountains are stories…….the stories we read

 

The stories we…dream……the stories we imagine…

 

Mountains..are where…no one owns anyone…mountains are same everywhere

Mountains…are where…I would love to disappear …one day….!!!!!

May flowers…..

 

…..As the April showers lash….

A respite from the summer heat…..

…now time for summer blossoms..

As if on cue…

The bare trees….

Puts on the green,fresh leaves…

And in few days….

Decks itself up…

With beauteous red blooms

The May Flowers….

Red color so deep…

One can get lost in it…

An aroma,a smell…

So faint…

Yet…felt from a distance…

As the may flowers….

Fills the air…

All that is heard is…

The buzz of the bees…

Songs of a sun bird…

Pretty are the trees…

But…splendid are the trees…

With mayflowers….

A flying rainbow..!!

 

This is the beautiful Indian roller bird… It has a myriad of colors…from every different angle…and in different lights…one can find many colors

This was the first bird…I saw in Sohar …and this is the one…which drew me to birding…a week back..managed to photograph the bird..in its various moods…and various poses…so posting a few best shots…along with few of my favourite bird quotes…!!!

Feathers …colors…the flight….the song…is all what makes a bird..!

A wish…to fly…it will remain a wish…I guess

:))))…

Have learnt to be silent…these days..

Easy for a bird…

 

That is really very true…

Same bird…in the evening light…
