“But in the end one needs more courage to live than to kill himself.”
― Albert Camus
the world is the oasis
to grow or wither
for a seed, a sapling, or a tree
today, I’m a lucky survivor
tomorrow, cast a shade for some, perhaps!

every autumn leaf leaves behind a tale that began on a spring morning,
every spring bloom graces the garden aware of the impending fall in autumn.
at the end of the dusk,
there awaits a beautiful dawn.
Another year is on our doorstep,
365 days it will roll out, before fading into the background.

You being here had been always my pleasure
from once upon a time when you first arrived
to now, when your presence overpower the world
I relish your presence
all I ask is to be kind and compassionate to us,
the other life forms, who can’t communicate through words.
Enjoy my shade,
adore those butterflies befriending the new blossoms
leave behind a trace of yours
without disturbing the laws of the universe,
could you, human?

raindrops trickling leaves swaying the road ahead glistening with rays of hope this too, a slice of life!
Life isn’t always stitched with grief and sorrows. There are these beautiful moments that grace our solemn days making them a tad enticing. And often these little moments of joy appear in the midst of our journey just like that. They can be overlooked as we hurry to our destination or can be tucked in our memory reservoir for another day as a priceless moment of relish.
I have been staring at this photo at intervals for the past 48 hours to come up with a couple of lines to accompany this capture. All in vain!
Every time I look at this picture my musings shift.
At first it gave me an ethereal feeling. On a second look, it gave me an eerie vibe. After that my mind is running back and forth between these two impressions.
Where is this picture taking you to? I’m curious to know.
i slash all the words in my head - nothing fits the picture perhaps, these unfitting words are the ones that suit this imperfect picture?
be a seed
so you can survive in the dirt
and inspire the world with beautiful blooms
“Learn from seeds; they don’t die when you throw dirt at them; they grow.”― Matshona Dhliwayo
This herb garden was grown by the students in my son’s school. It’s inspiring to see the kids taking responsibility and tending to the plants. They have done a good job, haven’t they?
