The leaves, like women, interchange…

Here’s one from Emily where she compares leaves to women. I love the tone of the poem and the choice of words. The leaves, just like women, seal a pact of confidence while interchanging their views and secrets. Their intuition or foresight or their reasoning skills are not to be questioned. They are wise, shrewdContinue reading “The leaves, like women, interchange…”

Blue moon, a broken toe and some moon musings!

Blue Moon, as once in a blue moon! That was a long wait for the rare celestial event called Blue Moon…Even though I knew that there’s nothing blue about it, the element of excitement was no less. This cosmic phenomenon took place on the 31st of July, but to my…

Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness…

That time of year thou mayst in me behold When yellow leaves, or none, or few, do hang Upon those boughs which shake against the cold, Bare ruined choirs, where late the sweet birds sang. In me thou see’st the twilight of such day As after sunset fadeth in the west; Which by and byContinue reading “Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness…”

I’ll tell you how the Sun rose…

Whenever the sky is all set for a gorgeous sunrise or a show of similar grandeur, an inner voice whispers and I absolutely trust my intuition. So when I woke up in the wee hours of the morning for reasons unknown to see the orange-pink streamers scattered over the sky, I knew that it isContinue reading “I’ll tell you how the Sun rose…”

“I’m out with lanterns looking for myself”

This October has been a disappointment as far as sunsets are concerned…Almost everyday the glory of the setting sun was smothered by dull clouds. Today was a different day. An old Malayalam song came to me as I kept a lantern on the window sill  and clicked the Sun ”ശരറാന്തൽ തിരി താണു മുകിലിൻ കുടിലിൽ, മൂവന്തിContinue reading ““I’m out with lanterns looking for myself””

My heart leaps up…

    As on the driving cloud the shiny Bow, That gracious thing, made up of tears and light ~Coleridge   It was a night of thunderstorm and the morning looked bleak. I did bear a grudge, though not longstanding, against Lady Nature for spoiling my Harvest Moon experience. Yesterday the western skies were busyContinue reading “My heart leaps up…”

An Emily a day keeps my gloom away!

The air was crisp and clean on the 1st of October and the sky was a joyful galore of cirrus patches! An uplifting sight that promised cheery sky days ahead. Cheers to the October sky! Weather is unpredictable just like human state of mind. 2nd October opened his eyes to a dreary, dull, rainy morning.Continue reading “An Emily a day keeps my gloom away!”

The hills are alive with the sound of silence!

Standing tall on the lap of Wayanad, the majestic Banasura Hill looks like a grand old sire. Ancient yet young the hills are a visual treat during the bountiful monsoons. Adding charm and providing a perfect backdrop to the breathtakingly picturesque Banasurasagar Dam, the verdant hills take the name from a mythological character. Banasura, aContinue reading “The hills are alive with the sound of silence!”
