The sweetest combination…

The  Sweetest combination!

Give me my books and my tea
And some lone time just to be
That snow brewing up a storm outside
By the fire you’ll find the happiest me!

The ever transient clouds…

WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge

I could look at the sky forever.
The world gets a different depth,
And you are in motion
Set by the drifting clouds above
A center discovered within
that pulls to the ground.
A calming trance…

Hope you see what I see through this picture.

WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: Transient

Happy Summer Solstice my dear visitors! This longest day of the year is transient before the days start getting shorter and shorter 🙂

Oh Wanderlust! The places you take me…

Oh Wanderlust! The places you take me…

I wander in the jungles
I wander in cities
I wander in the mountains
I wander by the seas
When sun is nigh
I wander
Drenched in light
Or the moon high
I wander
In the silver-night
I wander in my thoughts
Places seen, unseen
Oh wanderlust!
The places you take me…

A Raindrop On My Windowsill, And That Bird Singing Outside…

A Raindrop On My Windowsill, And That Bird Singing Outside…

Those were particularly dull days of the week,
Friday didn’t quite light me up
That lingering gray-ness weighing down
Into my days, from the skies above.
But Sat morning, I woke up
To the first Spring rains.
The grass was green, the plants
drippin’ with all it can contain
The earth emanated the love-scent
Of yearning, now spent
That Nature’s way of doting
Never failed to surprise me in
ways most endearing…
A raindrop on my windowsill
And that bird singing outside!

A surprise that I knew was in the offing, but what a pleasant one it was: A raindrop on my windowsill, and a bird singing outside!

A raindrop hangs out on my windowsill in a just-dropped-in-to-say-hello kind of way…
This bird sits on the still almost bare tree, but itself a forerunner of Spring that was on its way…

Dark Dense Clouds and a Raindrop

Raindrop under the dense clouds
A raindrop against the dark dense clouds. Monochrome # 015

The heart flutters with excitement
As the seasons change guard
Ever since it did in a lil’ girls backyard
It rained and rained. Then it rained some more
And awoke the buds after a peaceful slumber
Flirting, in the half- asleep, half -awake stupor
With a raindrop, that stayed as long as it could
And then bid adieu to the sombre bud
The dark dense clouds still so heavy with love
A raindrop too many’d soon descend from above…
