ORCHESTRA PLAYS MUSIC OF LIFE





'O' is for Orchestra








 Orchestra of life:

Entwines multiple notes in life’s trajectory,
Etches, experienced moments in its cognitive memory.
The songs we sing the melodies we create,
Express subtle longings hard to assuage.


Uncertainties entangle us, doubts thrive,                
Yet, the pleasures of life we dearly prize.
Life is a challenge and a ceaseless struggle,
Where winning and losing are mere sly bubbles.


Life is like a rattle a mom gives her baby
To distract, to amuse or to ease colic pain may be.
How pitiful to sap the life force through grudges!
Why not hold to the floating vibrant nudges.

All said and done-
Our short sojourn is a wonder and a mystery,
Indecipherable, yes! yet possesses  a unique gift of curiosity.


Friends,welcome here as always!

OUR WORLD



 Spring's surprises:


 This is the oldest cactus variety I'd which survived our long absenteeism and our gardener's apathy. I  started following the journey of the buds when they first appeared as tiny dark blobs.Within a couple of days they grew this much (above) ready to flower. I's excitedly waiting for the moment to click the tender beauties . But this was not to be. When they opened their petals it was raining and unexpected strong wind felled them. I'll have to wait another six months to get that chance again. It is alright. Nature  does play tricks off and on.   



                              The orange hued flowers are coming up profusely inside the

                              net fence across our boundary wall.

Posting for the new but interesting  meme. A walk in the neighborhood prompted this click and subsequently participation.

THURSDAY CHALLENGE

  This week's challenge is :

 "CLOSEUP" (Taken Close up, Macro, Small Things,...)

 It is said, small is the new big,
 As satire is the perfect dig.


Today is a rainy day. It is cloudy and dark. I'd to make do with something from inside. I decided to offer the pictures of this pair of small candle holders.  The one on the right has some varied colored beads inside the hollow. I didn't remove them before clicking.The lacy round thing underneath was crocheted by me a few years back.


Friends, welcome here as always!

NATURE IS THE UNIVERSE



                                                            Pic: Google


'N' is for Nature


Nature has no borders,

No conspiracies it harbors.

It is divinity  with a magic wand,

Vast, princely, utilitarian and beyond.

 Its kind and kingly universe,

Showers blessings, maintains gentle observe.

It nurtures flora, fauna and humankind

Forgives, forgets, instilling piety in the mind.

It is open, transparent and vouches for clarity,

Enfolds its squabbling subjects with charity.

It is a marvel-

How its subtle signals lead and inspire!

Ensures, the majesty intact of its crazy empire

However-

Nature’s unquestionable supremacy,

Holds man's existence in  absolute primacy.



Friends,welcome here as always!
