The Danger of driving

The danger of driving,…when roads are covered with snow and ice. (Makes for interesting Black and White pictures, though!) My other entry for danger is here: I struggle

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…

To Spring, and all things green!

It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot, and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade.”

-Charles Dickens, Great Expectations

After my first entry which was entirely different, this one is to Spring, and all things green!

Spring. First leaves of a tree. Blue Sky. Photography.
Baby leaves in the blue old sky!
Green, asparagus, copper, pan, photography.
Greens are good for the soul!
Walk in the green forest. Path. Trek. Hike. Photography. Photos.h
The path through the tall green trees!
Green. Monochrome. shaded. Photography.
Color me some green!
Fresh bright green leaves of the trees against the sky. Photography.
I love trees and the sky!

Mint Oreos…
Spring. First leaves of a tree. Blue Sky. Photography.
The bright green of the young leaves that steal my heart…
