In ones, twos, threes,
Into the lap of their Maker;
Still looking gorgeous…
By their loved ones
Still left on the tree…
Certainly not those
Where their Maker
Will throw them into next;
Inside a book,
Or around a temple idol’s neck,
In a woman’s hair,
Or in a flower seller’s basket,
In a brothel or a home
A tulip, orchid, or a rose,
A dog, cat, bird, reptile, or a human.
Like humans, there are many flowers which have fixed working hours. They fold their petals as soon as the sunlight disappears.
Isn’t that cute? A special effect that only Mother Nature can achieve…
See these pics below. I came across these lovely flowers while attending a training session at my new job…
In the morning…😍
In the evening…Shut for the day…Time to go home…
We humans, unfortunately, can’t always lead lives like these flowers here. Sometimes we go against Mother Nature; bloom at night under moonlight and sleep during the day while the sun is out…😔
Trees are an intrinsic part of our lives. But because of rapid urbanization, a lot of them have been eliminated mercilessly without ensuring their immediate relocation or replacement.
Wherever they exist, especially those with thick trunks and huge canopies, their treatment is generally in two extremes, either worshipped with stings attached or manhandled. Rarely ever are they left alone in peace, free to grow and breathe in full freedom, the way all trees ought to be treated…
Given below are pics of three trees; a used one; a heavily worshipped one with a concrete fence around it; and a free, unfettered tree, a very lucky guy indeed, growing somewhere on the NH8 Delhi-Jaipur Highway…Look at them closely and feel the effect each one of them has on your senses…
Today, on 15 August 2019, as we celebrate our Independence Day, let us free all living things, not just humans, and let them live only for the bliss of living…
A few days ago, I had posted about this Newborn karela (bitter gourd) plant of mine.
While it was growing, I noticed that its creeping handles were not grabbing anything.
Not any more. See this pic here. Not only is it clinging, it’s also being very naughty and grabbing falling dead leaves too!
Soon, it will carry little karelas. I look forward to posting that pic soon.
