The twilight tree… Skyscape # 005

Twilight, tree, sky, sunset.
The bare twilight tree. Skyscape # 005


THE waning sun
The sky blue still
The night to come
The heart athrill

THE tree so bare
Looks up to the sky
The sunset’s glare
The darkness nigh

IT’S arms outspread
It’s soul inviting
A tree beckons
With love abiding

BOUND notwithstanding
Its Spirit free
All over, burning
The Twilight Tree..

Twilights are one of my favorite times of the day. It is a short time when two worlds merge, creating a third, evanescent one. This poem is dedicated to twilight and the witnessing tree.

It was a particularly sunny and warm day, and the sky was dotted with an amoeba-like shape made up of lots and lots of black wings, elongating and twisting, as the party moved from tree to tree. The above picture (no filter applied) is a moment in time when hundreds of birds were perched on the leaf-less tree tops, a sight to see as they stopped awhile, and before I knew it, they were soaring back in the fresh blue skies!

And below is the picture (transfer filter on iPhone). I love the color and how it changes the mood…

The Stars of Sunshine…

The stars of sunshine: a poem of love between the sun and the blue waters of the earth. Celebration of love this Saint Valentine’s Day. (No- too tacky!)

Black and white, reflection, monochrome, photography,
Stars on water…

The Stars of Sunshine

The Sun is back
With all its might
Flying to the earth
At the speed o’ light
The liquid sky trembles
It’d pined all night
One fervent embrace n’
Countless stars of delight!

Sunlight dancing on water…


Yesterday was sunny, although not comfortably warm and a park nearby glowed. The stream reflected the abundant sunlight. I could watch the light dance on the shining blue waters for hours- it was so magical!

These pictures were taken to capture that magic. But could one ever really do that, fully?

The Daily Post- Weekly Photo Challenge: Ambience / Morning

Deep blue sky by Sonali
Deep blue sky , clear after days of clouds and snow. #nofilter


It was about 9 in the morning. The clouds parted and the sun walked in. The air was crisp and fresh. The leafless trees carried a faint memory of the snow storm the previous night. I felt so happy to be around here; the mood and ambience reminded me of cozy snow covered homes in christmas cards and the warmth of an optimistic life and living, a feeling that one might get after a long dark night…
