Walk in the Woods


The black brought colors to life

Twinkly fireflies erupted gold flakes


Green leaves danced with aquamarine

Flowers glowed with a topaz polish


Diamonds sparkled on still waters

Amethyst beams dappled the rocks


Stars shone with the sheen of pearls

 Lights of the moon spun with silver


Emerald eyes caught with onyx ones

Love blossomed… treasured and priceless

Day 4 and this is fun… Thank you Rob 🙂 I went on a night trek last weekend and this painting at one of my favorite breakfast place took me back there…

My next nomination for this is Prateek… Look out for his poetry, it can stun you breathless. The challenge is – “Post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or a short paragraph and each day nominate another blogger for the challenge”




See that road… curving

Around the corner

Endless or a dead-end?

A fall or a steep climb?

Or simply meandering on…?

How will you know?

Only if you gather the courage

And take that first step to keep going.

No matter if the road is not taken

Or heavily beaten!

Pause to look at the sides – maybe

your surprise is lying packaged there.

Now, keep aside your goal and aims…

The journey should make the destination worth it.

Captured on a long romantic walk – the weather was playing games. I stole a card. Brought to you on Day 2 of the Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge nominated by Rob

My second nominee is Zee – a barrel of fun, laughter and love. The challenge is – “Post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or a short paragraph and each day nominate another blogger for the challenge”

Strolling along the beach at midnight,

Lost in the solitude with melting sands,

Looking out towards an azure horizon

– still invisible.


Hands reaching around to clasp

The tremors of the wind; now inciting

To embrace the warmth of another’s arms

– still invisible.


Breathing in the sorcery of the night,

Heart beats to the pulse of a shy moon

Humming the silent songs for a beloved

– still invisible.


Eyes shine at the fireworks of the stars,

Igniting the rich plumage of a buoyant sky

Bridal shower awaiting the paramour

– still invisible.


Salt-kissed wisps of thoughts scintillating,

Stealing a wish from the floating lanterns.

Come whisk me beyond the galaxies you,

– still invisible!

A girl dreams. A woman hopes. For that love to sweep her off the feet into a spiral of ecstasy and euphoria. 

Nights like these link up very well with Open Link Night at dVerse 🙂

The Flower Works


And so beckoned the hazy sunshine,

To take a lazy stroll down the grassy path.


A burst of colors making a royal tapestry,

To show off their rich velvety freshness.

Sweet Alison11The sweet Alison with her dewy earthy rushes,

Made an enigmatic welcome into the virgin foliage.

Blue Cinerarias1

A blossoming dome of blue Cineraria

Winked merrily… jealously guarding her secrets.

Cabbage Rose1_20150225151212607

There was a cabbage patch to be spied,

Proudly camouflaging as a blooming rose.

Dahlia Pink4

Pirouetting like a ballerina was the majestic Dahlia,

Glistening merrily under her leafy green umbrella.


Tucked in the rambles was a school of Marigolds,

In rapt attention of their mysterious readings.

Except a naughty one lounging in the bulbs,

Quietly basking underneath the honeyed rays.


Flirting on the right was the silvery Petunia,

In full splendor of her grace and alluring suggestions.

Pansy2Vying for attention with her delicate charisma,

Enticed the amethyst and amber clad Pansy flower.


The towering and glowering Dahlia sister,

Was standing tall and proud in the white lights.


A calming presence in her dusky cove,

The Marigold shared her wisdom to the observant eye.


The invigorating Pinks made irresistible offers,

With the plump strawberries nestling in frosty cream.

Livingstone daisy3_20150225152033867A triumphant finish lay in the Livingstone Daisies,

Seducing with a tempting roll in their soft feathery beds.image

A meandering walk into the unseen magic,

Painted a different view on the canvas of the wild.

An evening this weekend presented me with these gems, and obviously the poetry simply could not stop flowing. These photographs have been clicked with my humble S4 Mini.
