A gulmohar tree in my neighborhood.

A rock pool in the beach of Chandipur, Orissa, India.

Himalayan foothill.

These photographs have been taken by me ( all the other photographs in this site have been downloaded from the net). I will be away from home for work and I do not know when I will be able to make the next post at this blog. In the meantime enjoy the present posts.

Rain lines, close, slanting
Upon the pond
Like tail bones of fish.
They prick the water
Ovals surround dots,
Breaking, pairs of curves
Like ear rims they form.

Who's prancing on roof
The fishes wonder,
Who's stained its mirror
Guesses peeping sky.

The butterfly
Sitting pretty
On flower top
Both wings raised
Colourful crest
On a bird's head.
softly it flies
To buds, flowers
Carrying colours
To more colours
Gently caress
Gentler petals
On each visit
On each bright day.

I've never seen a ribbon lake but I've written this poem from imagination


From the corrie lakes
Narrow streams flow down
Into ribbon lake
Like many mothers
Bound by umbilical
Cords to single child.

Chillness of glaciers
Its water speaks of,
Grey blue its colour,
Just a green shadow
On its bed and banks.
