Quack a Quack

It’s a natural sound, out of a natural shape;
a natural pattern, with a natural expression, of natural colors…
Sometimes just some quacks, that’s is the order of the day.
Some moments from the times we spent at the ducks of Hergiswil…

Unfolding Scents

They’re enveloped in tender petals,
Unfolding scents every minute;
Buds, we call them; they flower
To resplendent beauty
That lasts but few hours…

New sprouts, new hopes

Imagine of new sprouts…Aren’t they children of the Earth and Sky?
Mother Earth nourishes it, and father sky looks upon it, caresses it gently,
They both nurture it, and it fosters with new hopes, in the nature’s cradle;
Holding on to it’s environmental calling—to grow, to serve, to procreate,
The habitat that turned into it’s own simple playground—Ha! What a pleasure to watch!

New sprouts, new hopes

Oval Eyes

The animal kingdom has plenty of oval eyes :-)
Some are truly captivating, showing a special area of nature,
That sharply gazes back on you… Looks from the famous families…
The families of great lizards, camels, birds and turtles.

Gulmarg Views

Tiring as we climbed Tanmarg, we just went on…over zig-zag roads,
Towards Gulmarg. The name fascinated me—what a beautiful name it is;
Translating it as simply ‘meadow of flowers’, placed in the Himalayas.
A snow-filled hill station, there we saw people for winter-sports,
We quietly stepped out to snow and bewildered over the views it offered–
Snow caps, blue hazy valleys and rivulets between meadows!
… … …

Beautiful views from Gulmarg, Kashmir, India:

Lighted Spiral

From Dal Lake

Dal lake of Srinagar remains a beautiful memory,
There are dozens of other scenes to see the classic Dal Lake,
But this ones for now :-)

Inflorescence in Pink

I forget the smell of these inflorescence
when I watch their brilliant shades of pinks in amazing shapes…

Icing

The blanket of ice that spread around valleys and the crushed roads,
Some are just like crystals that flicker with flashy lights,
Through its ever-curious shapes, in those high-peaks of the Earth…

There it’s biting chill always; now there seemed a snowstorm that made a panoramic icing…
All over those landscapes—some looking like a perfect wave,
Some are colorful with those black army trucks and heavy freakish goods-lorries…

Dewdrops

The shines of the water balls shot at my eyes,
While I shot them shining with numerous bokehs…
Those dewdrops remained at the center of my lens,
Looking so pristine, rounded and natural,
Over new leaves and fresh flowers in my veranda,
Passing a flowery aroma with a nice chill…
