Romping with dry leaves

The idyllic afternoon

Poured slumber in me

Souvenir on Sand

The magnificent sea waves always left us to wonder about the vastness of  nature . The magnitude with which the hungry waves devour the shore during high tides is awe-inspiring . But nature has so many things in store for us , which are small yet wonderful ; cliché  yet profound . These are some patterns on the sandy beach of Arabian Sea  which attracted my attention during ebb tide. These are made by the flow of waves in various ways . Just look at them and the first glance would give you the impression that you’re actually looking at the waves .

Adam and Eve

There was anticipation in air 
The trees , smeared in heat 
Waited eagerly in reverence
The ground  ,  as thirsty as Tantalus 
Was muttering inaudible prayers.
Not a single ripple in the stream 
The earth stood still .
The sky , no more an azure one
The cardinal colour , as if 
Ready to witness , that first sin 
Committed by our eternal parents

And , then She came ,
Neither coy nor coquettish
Her first bite and lo ! 
They surrendered  to it
That powerful , poignant
Emotion which conquered all. 
The earth smiled , the wind chimed
Rainbow gilded their path .
They stood still as the sun rose 
With new rays and newer hopes .
     Amor Vincit Omnia

Ode to Onomatopoeia

Swoosh ! the leaves rustle 
Glee glee glee ….the giggling stream 
Brings a whiff of  fresh , clear water 
I sniff , I  snort , the smell of leaves 
I breathe in the flowers .
Splash ! I throw and 
Plop ! they go 
Pebbles and stones 
Clack ! the twigs wince 
Under my feet .
The bees buzz , the doves moan
The wind makes the wood babble
Rattling branches greet me 
Merrily , I enjoy the gabble.

Onomatopoeia is a figure of speech which describes sounding words i.e formation of words which imitate natural sounds .

Holiday or Holy Day

1-Mumbai 221

Snowflakes whispered on the window pane
I watched  and watched with beaming eyes
Water droplets converted to crystals
As a steaming mug warmed my fingers.

I spent the day with waves tinkling my feet
Sand caressed my knees softly
Melody of leisure ameliorated
The nitty-gritty of methodical mundane life .

The ethereal cerulean layer melted with the setting sun
I watched and watched with beaming eyes
Nowhere to reach , I stopped the time
Holidaying with myself  , sublime.
