Sacrifice

I never miss my morning walk through the small farm area behind my house whenever I get time and surprisingly there is always something awaiting me to capture and write about.

Let me share with you what I found today…

This is the fallen petals of banana flower. I saw them on the floor and arranged it like this to click a picture. As always thoughts started to sprout in my mind about the short life of these petals and yes I tried to put those ramblings of my mind into words which you can read now.

I was bright and beautiful when born

Red as blood and skin soft as velvet

I wrapped myself around my little ones

Guarding them from harshness of days

They grew and the day I scared arrived

My protection was a burden for them

Detatched from my life I rested on soil

My colours faded and my skin dried up

I waited there with a spark of hope

Till the day I was embraced by earth…

Have a great day friends!

Last breath..

I felt trapped inside the black cloud

Freedom was what I was waiting for

Move around without being watched

Away from the eyes that followed me

Restricted to move around on my own

Irked being stuck whole day and night

In that cocoon away from the world

Not aware of the dangers on the earth

I set myself free to explore the world

As tiny drops I ran towards my dream

Engulfing everything in my vicinity

Clueless I was inviting my own death

Scattered I lied there shattered in bits

Till the mighty sun took my last breath

Childhood days…

I sat there searching pages of my life

Wandering through my memory trail

My mind disturbed counting my losses

Which was seized mercilessly by time

Where did I lose my unfeigned smiles?

Where did I lose my innocent heart?

Untouched by the pollution and noise

My life started in this beautiful village

Nature filled my mind with its colours

Peace was what I was taught by them

Ego and jealosy was unknown words

Competition and greed was unfamiliar

Yearning to dive back to those days

With a heavy heart I returned back

Day light gave way to the darkness

Reminding me that it is time to leave…

Weekly Photo Challenge – Silence

Hey friends,

Here is my submission for this week’s photochallenge – Silence

There is nothing beautiful than the silence of nature. Especially when you live in a city flooded with sound of traffic and people all around you and living life like a robot, these short getaways to the heart of nature where there is no intervention of humans make me feel so good. Its like rebooting myself and filling a fresh energy to push me ahead to prepare for the upcoming routine schedule.

Time stood still in a deep sorrow

My vision blocked by thick fog

Ruling out the parallel life I live

Still I feel I am locked in a cage

Eager to fly like a bird let loose

Wander away to worlds unseen

Move away from all the havocs

Snuggle in the silence of nature

Weekly photo challenge!

I have been going through my gallery searching for a meaningful photo to submit for this week’s photo challenge and got stuck into this capture.

All those who search for the hidden meaning inside this image, I would like to suggest you to read the following poem!

They stood there divided by the river

Struggling hard to be together

Stretching its branches in full length

Leaning towards to feel the touch

Still they feel they are one soul

With the bridge connecting them

Villains are there in all love stories

Here river turned to be one

Still they waited days and months

For that precious moment to come

When their soul and body be one

And remain together forever…

Weekly Photo Challenge – Rounded

Hey friends,

Here is my entry towards the Weekly Photo Challenge – Rounded

As always I am here with a capture from nature. If you look around you carefully, you can see numerous God created curves and rounds like perfectly shaped trees, curved mountains, the cluster of clouds in the sky and much more.

Though I had many captures of curved roads and other manmade structures, I made my mind to present this before you as I won’t be satisfied from within if I take one of those.

Standing on the hilltop where I grew

Looking down at the life below

The world beneath is full of colours

Smudged into numerous shapes

All I could see is hasty movements

Running straight without deviations

Sailing in vigor in the stream of time

Still the shore is just an imagination

You may say I am looking at the life

Sadly I say I couldn’t see any life…
