We are all butterflies of the almighty. We start off as caterpillars. Unaware of our potentials ! Not knowing of the beautiful wings that are yet to unfold. And then, slowly and gradually, we morph; into beautiful, colorful and graceful butterflies, spreading love and happiness wherever they sit, even for a moment. Continue reading
Hey friends, say hello to my newest friend. It is one of the best gifts I have ever received. It is a Gulmohar plant planted on my behalf on World Environment Day by a dear friend of mine. I named the Gulmohar plant after my nick name Chinky. 🙂
Isn’t she so adorable ? I hope one day she grows up to be a lovely shady tree spreading around a lot of warmth and love. I have a special fondness towards plants and I believe there is so much to learn from them. They give so selflessly without expecting anything in return. They take in the carbon dioxide and breathe out fresh air. They take away our worries and irks and greet us with shelter and shade when life is shining too bright at us. One of my ideas of a Dream house is that it should be having a huge garden where I can plant my favorite flowers and trees and spend some time every morning talking to them (Oh yes, they do listen and they do respond. I have read online about green thumbing.).
Take me far away,
Away from the worries,
Of this meddlesome world..
Take me to the lakes,
Where unicorns stop by,
To talk with the quacking ducklings..
Take me somewhere calm and quiet,
Away from the hustled city life,
In green paddy fields,
Where I can lay, gazing at the stars..
The season of love,
The reason to fall in love..
Droplets of rain,
And colourful rainbows,
Like manna from heaven,
Descend on earth..
I walked aimless into the woods so deep,
Where the sky was hidden beneath the bushes..
Red, green, pink and yellow,
An electric fusion it was..
I stood there awestruck by its beauty,
I looked up, the branches pierced the sun,
My gaze lingered around far and wide,
Two birdies on a tree, singing a love melody..
P.S.: This is a little lengthy post. Kind of a short story. Please read till the very end 🙂
At times, some things we usually do, sink deep within us, without even our realization. And then they become an integral part of our daily lives. I like listening to music and love going on shopping sprees, especially on “Deal Days” (as I call it 😉 ). Just a mile away from my office, there is a mini supermarket; I’d go at least once a week. While leaving from work, I would tune into my ear phones and put some loud music and head out shopping. I would be there, but I wouldn’t be there. Physically, I would be in a store; mentally, I would be lost in some thoughts or be pondering over the lyrics of the song, I love listening to so much. Since I stay close by, I would often walk to my office or walk back home in evening. Listening to music or talking over the phone on my way is always implied.
