Framed! 

Who scattered them? 

The unseen Sun

The dawn

As the invisible Sun
Spreads across shine,
It’s indeed impossible
For the dew drop
To hold on to the blade of grass..
As it has lost itself
In totality
To the unadulterated Ray
Signifying a new beginning
Filled with warmth and life!

Shadow

Is the tree casing it shadow on the sky? Or is the cloud imprinting it’s presence on earth for a longer life span?

What lies ahead? 

Is it the end,
Where the path of the past
Bids adieu
As it ceased to exist?

Is it the bend,
Where the path takes
A new turn
As it enters new horizons?

Is this the beginning of
Another new month?
Is this the end as
The year comes to a close?

What was in the past?
Few promises were broken!
Few new promises were made!
And in between life did happen!

What lies ahead?
Isn’t that the billion dollar question?
Blushing blooming buds?
Fragrant fluffy flowers?

What’s out there could be
Seen, heard and felt from there…
But not from here, for
Appearances are deceptive!

So step ahead..
Even if it’s towards an end..
For the road bends and there lies
Another new beginning!

Could it beat the nature’s beauty? 

What story do you hear? 

Rays to bloom

What do you see? 

De-light

Over the head! 

Framing the frames

frames.jpeg

A milestone?! 

Cap

Snow cap has a beauty to it..
And so does the cloud cap..

Where to next? 

Another step,
Another path,
Another adventure,
An Exploration of experience! 

Steps!

wp-1473257555114.jpeg

Steps! They are well worn! Many people have used those steps but to go up …. or to go down? Perhaps both? Were they walking … or running…. and why? What is at the bottom? What is at the top? Were the people adventurers, or refugees? Recreational enthusiasts or environmentalists? They could have been very young….. or very old, and perhaps had horses or donkeys to accompany them? Did those that go up them find their goal, or did they return disappointed. Did those that come down them ever return to the top? So many questions must go unanswered. So many stories must go untold. Steps!

Caged

Is it the bird that is caged?
Or is it the heart of the one who caged them in?

Peaceful sleep

Dog sleeping on dust

Dog sleeping on dust

Only someone who has no regrets or one who leads a contended life could sleep this peacefully while lying on the floor surrounded by nature in its primal form. So what would it be for you and what might be the reason for this dog? But do dogs need reason to be peaceful?! 😉

What is the story!?

This is a very common site in the southern India, where many stories unfold every single day. What is the story it speaks to you?

Which story do you hear?

The post is tagged for Jithin’s Mundane Monday Challenge: Learn Photography. Do visit his new awesome site for more mundane, yet beautiful pictures!

A duck face selfie!

If you think you are misguided by the title, I am sorry. But this is indeed a selfie.. Yes, that’s my other hand and it pretty much looked like a duck face to me.. 😉

Duck face?!

The fun of making shadow puppets is ageless! So what is  memory that surfaces when you think of shadow puppet? Waiting to hear your story.. 🙂

Pen and paper

Pen over Paper

In Black and White

As the nib dances over the page,
As the ink flows through the pen,
As the emotions drip through the hand,
As the mind empties as the heart speaks out,
As the time ticks by, the paper is filled..

The heart is empty as everything was poured out..
The mind so serene, for the heart isn’t wavering..
A glow is added to the smile in the eyes..
The heart feels content, happy and what not!

Even when the ink fades, the emotion stays..
Even when the paper decays, the smile lingers..
Even when the sender is forgotten,
The message stays..

Let our words outlive the version of our memories,
In the hearts of people around you..
And let those be the sweetest of words,
For the pain of words has no cure, at all..

Thank You Stalker!

wp-1469468429692.jpeg

Every work of art has
Flawless Beauty,
Beautiful Flaws,
Mere Perfection,
Lack of Substance,
Life Lesson,
A mere scribble
And so much more..

And every such creator
Needs, not wants,
Needs a follower,
Bordering the level
of a professional stalker,
Without the creepiness,
But just with the consistency
And observation of the stalker..

To read the words,
To read the spaces,
Between the lines,
To realise the intent,
To understand the nuances,
To find out the unwritten words,
To appreciate the concealment,
Of ingeniousness inside simplicity..

To criticise,
To condemn,
To proofread,
To push when stagnating,
To pull down when going overboard,
To travel alongside,
Just to make sure,
The journey isn’t lonely..

For every journey
Is bound to get lonely at times
And also it could make sure that
The traveller feels
Abandoned,
Hopeless,
Lost and maybe
On the wrong route..

So I dedicate this 275th post,
To thank my followers,
Friends, critics and supporters
And especially my stalkers,
For every single Like,
Comment and Follower,
On and Off the WordPress,
For getting me here!

(: THANK YOU! 🙂

The window

The door

image

Does this signify an entrance?
Or is this the barring gate?
Will it open to new ventures?
Will it withheld the dreams?

Could I push it open?
Will it pull me back?
Is it colorful from the other side too?
Does this contain rainbows?

Or is it just the leftover unfulfilled dreams?
Or is it the color palette to paint new dreams?
Or is it a mere part of the door?
And am I thinking too much again? 😛

Do Diamonds grow on plants?!

 

When I saw these diamond buds in the morning, I thought yes, Diamonds goes grow on plants! And these diamonds are even more precious as they couldn’t be held in palm or made into jewellery. But they help us nurture us and cherish us with the vital element of our life. The H2O. And still they look like poetry written by Nature!

 

The switchboard!

The power to reconnect broken links!

IMG_20151125_065648

Waiting eternally
For being switched on again!
To restore the connections
And to set in rotation
The movements of the fan!

Waiting for you!

As the sun rushes to kiss the horizon,
The sky blushes and turns red..
He kisses her everyday..
She blushes at every kiss..

This is the oldest, yet youngest love
And a truly forever kind of love..

I’m here on this rooftop waiting,
For my kiss, blush and love..
Is that you over the horizon?
Oh yes! And here I come, my love!!

Eyeing the eye!

Contrasting Sprinklers!

Here’s another water sprayer,
But this isn’t to sprinkle
Tiny diamonds on golden leaves..
But to bring down the sparkle
Of fire ablaze to safety!

A view through kaleidoscope!

Though it might be scary / creepy for few, it is quite mundane at few places!

Waiting…

Waiting may be pleasant or not, depending on what the waiting is for.. But the time of waiting is absolutely ours to make it worthwhile by filling up the mobile space with some creativity. Here is what was captured when I was waiting for the bill after a happy dinner!

This long forgotten photo was dug out from archive after seeing the entry of TraBlogger in his Mundane Monday Challenge!

Waiting for the waiter!

Smiles!

Few smiles are un-erased by anything. For they are not actual smiles and they will never ever fade.

Wonder What!

Quaint or Quite Mundane?!

The everyday life can be more beautiful when you know to see the everyday things in a different angle.. I clicked this some time ago and found this mundane beauty while browsing through my archives..

Quaint or Quite Mundane.jpg

If you like this click, you would love the beautiful clicks listed here in Trablogger’s blog under the Mundane Monday Challenge.

The object in the click is a not-so-rare view and why don’t you take a guess on what is it.. (Hint: It is not a personalised item like Bags)

Waiting for your guesses.. 🙂

Kaleidoscope?!

When was the last time you stopped to notice the simple mundane things with attention to detail?

If you are wondering so long, to remember that, now is the time to look around.. But with a little more attention to those everyday things and scenery, we take-for-granted.

Isn’t there something beautiful that grabbed your attention, more than others. Now, frame-it and hang-it out, not in the legal sense, but with a camera and a blog post.

Don’t you want it to be enjoyed and appreciated by many? Here’s a simple way! Give a pingback in your post to TraBlogger’s Mundane Monday Challenge!

The reflections of a normal Jhumka gives a somewhat resemblance to the Kaleidoscope to me.. And it also makes me think of a little girl with her head slanted to the side.. Do let me know what you think of it in the comments..

Multitude of people in multiple colors!

What better place to have a look at people of all sorts than a railway station.. And this art displayed there perfectly portrays that vibrancy of variety. Kindly excuse for the lack of a better angle or framing. I was rushing to catch a train and the colors screamed to be captured and here it is..

A leaf from my diary!

A hobbit never returns the same after an adventure.
A human never returns the same after an exciting trip.

That’s what’s happening to me now..
The practice of writing everyday has changed..
Have loads of fun stories to share,
And have few wonderful clicks to flaunt,
Yet, now, doing none of it..

Because, I’m relishing the comfort of being back..
There is a joy in going away
And there’s another kind of joy in coming back..

For now, this seems to be heaven,
Lazing around,
Slowly catching up with the virtual world
Ticking off the pending lists..

And on top of the list is,
Another new post for tomorrow!
Phew..
Yeah that’s my reaction when I started rambling
And once again a phew!!
For this ramble could fill in as a post for the day..

So just not to let you totally disappointed,
Here’s another click of a leaf..
Which will also suit as ‘the last leaf’

image

Almost the end of leaf at almost the end of the day!

As you get bored with my ramble
Or mesmerized by my leaf,
Lemme clear out the foggy laziness
Cluttering my hazy brain,
And come with a good post for tomorrow!!

Keep waiting
And don’t forget
To smile and gift a smile!!

The last leaf!

This is not about the short story of O.Henry, except that I stole his title for this picture!!

And I do love that story too much. But another post for that story at another time. Now get to enjoy this tiny lonely leaf.

What story it holds or what story it would unfold is not known to me and hence there are zillion possibilities!! Now tell me, what is the story this leaf reminded you of, or what would be the story you would spin over this..

Earning the Trust!

The crow here is indeed a normal one, except for one little thing.

 

The powerful crow.jpg

The Powerful Crow!

 

Yesterday, I was sleeping in the afternoon after a good meal and I was woken up by this crow. Yeah, you read that right. It was calling or actually screaming at the top of its voice, till I went to look what happened. As soon as I appeared before it, the tone of calls changed but still it was calling out. That’s when I realised that my mother has forgotten to keep food for it in the usual place today.

 

On the hunt.jpg

On the Hunt

 

So I went in and brought a little leftover food for it and was waiting for what it would do then. It went and tasted it. Then it came back near the house and started calling out again. Now I bought some freshly cooked food and kept in its place. The crow clearly did not trust me and we both had a staring competition for awhile. I felt sorry, more than bothering to win the staring match. So I placed a little food where it was sitting. It took a cautious bite of the food and only then it went back to have the food from the usual place.

 

The contemplating crow.jpg

The Contemplating Crow!

 

It had it’s tummy full of food (I assumed so) as it flew off silently even without a glance or thanks 😉  at me. Of course, ignore the fact that I never said thanks to it for posing to me or extend any courtesy for not yet suing me for stealthily capturing its private moments of contemplation. It would be back tomorrow and I hope it remembers me.. 😛

Top of the roofs to you!

I was trying to find a roof-top picture and found this one with various roofs. This one looked really mundane while I clicked and even when I saw it in colour. But in monochrome, I am not so sure. Hope you too like this click of multiple roof-tops.

Patterns called Kolam!

 

This week Jithin had posted a pattern with colours behind the pattern and this made me pull out a snap of mine of the pattern with colours in it.

For those who are not aware of kolam / Rangoli. The Kolam is a very common sighting in the South Indian streets. Every house entrance is decorated with the kolam every morning and evening (in most places). The kolam is made using rice flour, hence considered to be offering food for ants and tiny insects, as well as good exercise for women in the morning. But with time, this tradition too underwent changes. The changes include interchanging the rice flour to chalk powder and preparing the kolam on the night before. Though this is creeping into many places, it is still practiced in the traditional way at many places. Kolam is always an important part of our celebrations and they are more specially made and decorated on festive time.

This picture is from my home during this season of Pongal. Pongal is our Thanksgiving day to the Sun, nature and living creatures (bullocks, cows..) involved in the process of agriculture. That is too big story to fill in a post, so I suggest that you ask up Google Lord to quench your further curiosity.. 😉

The Observer!

The Observer

And here I am,
Looking around and knowing;

Who loves their coffee,
Who drinks for thirst of it,
Who gulps it without tasting,
Who enjoys the company better
than their coffee,
Who ignores the coffee,
Coz they were lost
In the eyes of the company..

 

Yet,
I enjoy my coffee
In every sip,

Inhaling the aroma
deep enough
To fill every pore of my lungs,

Tasting the flavor
long enough
To indulge every taste bud,

Relishing the twirls
not so long enough
But just enough
To know every direction
The liquid flows
With every little stir,

Holding the cup
just in the way
To let the warmth
spread through the palm
And add warmth
To the heart,

Still the mind,
Eludes and wonders
At some rare times,
Who observes
This observer?
