Amongst a crowd of birds at kanva

What is that they say….a crowd is the last place..if one wants to find a few moments of peace!

But…last Saturday …I was amidst a noisy crowd of birds…but strangely …the noon air was filled with just that …peace!

From far….it was just the calm blue's….I saw…a still hill…a numb river kanva…not warm not cool river breeze…

Parked the car…and started walking towards the riverbank…..

The path was laden with soft sand..small pebbles…& yellow,pink,blue wildflowers & floating butterflies…

As the edge of river got closer…first sound were that of the subtle splashes of waves

 

 

The water was no more blue….it was the fresh rain water…muddy ..and fishes splashing in & out….and birds resting on twigs…

What blessed life I thought…

 

And I realised it was a crowded world out there…

 

 

 

 

Fishing glossy ibises

 

Pelicans and ducks relaxing…

 

 

Painted storks …just dozing….

 

A family of spoonbills…enjoying the gentle splashing Water..

 

 

 

Some trying to find romantic moments…

 

 

 

 

Stilts…in their own world…

 

Then like in our world …the loners…& their lonesome moments

A cormorant

 

A stilt

 

A pelican

 

And up above the skies…only where they dare to fly …Eagles….

Just sat on a rock…listening to the breeze..splashes..watching the ripples…& the tiny shells on the bank….

Thought to myself..if there were hundreds of humans around…..what would be the scenario …

I would avoid it like a plague….

A crowd should be like this…each in its own world …no commenting…no opining…no judging….

Live and let live…

I know…it is impossible

As we had our coffee…

Saw the birds…in groups…started to fly…for the night rest I suppose..

As they flew towards the huge green hill…

It was time for us to leave…the sun was already near horizon …

 

 

 

 

This flock of ducks were the last to leave….

The wilderness…to keep us all sane…& to remind us…to be free….
