Daddy long legs

You are an integral part of my childhood

When things were less analysed but better understood

You walked on your monster-truck legs

We called you Daddy longlegs

You remind that everything hasn’t changed

Though episodically the world seems deranged

Thank you for appearing again

To remind me of the joys and slight pain

Of magical days gone by

Of the ability of thoughts to fly

Of omnipresent miracles and magic

Your reappearance did the trick…….

The Glow-worm

When the night is long and dark

You wait patiently on a bark

Your posterior has the seventh sense

The unique property of  bioluminescence  !!

You are the stars that shine on earth

Blessed are those who see your worth

You make indelicate words sound amazing

The word bottom and worm require praising………

Do not do this…when you fly

I do like flying…it’s the quickest way to travel, unless you are from a planet where people can just take off at the speed of light, fueled by their own energy!!!!! Some co-passengers make it almost impossible to enjoy travel of any sort. Here’s what I never do to others(co-passengers) on a flight, since it annoys me immensely….

  1. If someone is sitting in the seat next to you, do not plonk your elbows in their zone….it’s rude, disgusting…………….and you haven’t paid for their side of their seat
  2. Do not spill food or drink on your fellow passengers…..or belch loudly in their ear…..
  3. Please do not try to rest your snoring head on their shoulder…….
  4. We know you can read….please do not read out the flight catalog out loud
  5. Do not engage in non stop conversation while your saliva flies across the ‘no-fly’ zone between you
  6. Do not request others to take care of your offspring…..you didn’t ask us before you brought them into this world
  7. Please do not sing aloud with your earphones….you are saved form listening to yourself, others aren’t that lucky
  8. No, I do not want to know about your ‘significant others’
  9. No, I do not want to see pics of your family
  10. Please do not ask me for my number…….                                                                                        Please let’s agree to our mutually beneficial ‘no sound, no touch’ policy so that we may be civil to and completely ignore each other 🙂

Flower to fruit..Strawberry

Why do we pine for the good old days

We let the present slip by in a haze

Metamorphosis isn’t always bad

Are we determined to be sad ?

When a flower becomes a strawberry

Don’t grieve, it is time to make merry

Each moment holds the promise of magic

We would see it if we didn’t focus on the tragic..,,,

The Queen in her Castle

Everyone is the king or queen of their castle

Far away from the hustle and bustle

Why do we classify and judge one and all

We call this lady old and her home too small

She could well be the reason

For the glorious monsoon season

Wild flowers bloom all around her everywhere

I see a beautiful human who does not hesitate to share

Tales of bravery, sacrifice and lives lived well

In her castle the Queen does dwell ….

Greater Coucal — pose encounters

The large bird was initially shy

When I came close, it would fly

With time shared comes a silent comradeship

Something about me or my camera made it flip

It came closer Day by day

It knew I was there to stay

That glorious morning arrived at last

It was neither furious nor fast

It kept flying closer till it was at eye level with me

For that moment in eternity we both did see

That relationships are based on curiosity and trust

Precious moments are created and virtual firecrackers burst

Thank you O magnificent and beautiful bird

You were silent but your thoughts were heard ….

Sunset over the mountains

There is a magical show in the sky

It happens in the mountains, don’t ask me why

The spectacular sun dance

Puts one in a trance

The flamboyance couple with tranquility

Casts a spell over the hill city

Mother Nature enthralls those who have the time

To watch and listen, it doesn’t cost a dime!

Himalayan Hollyhocks

Hollyhocks are ornamental and unusual as they grow in a vertical fashion, with rows of flowers. They are large flowering plants which attract butterflies and moths.
