Fall colored leaves, stars on the tundra’s curb: If branches were sages; leaves their proverbs; Leaflets oracles proclaiming their ring lineage Etched in the waters of their striated foliage. Perhaps, fall leaves are nature’s patterned socks, A kindness nature weaves from the season’s fabric, Grounding our affections in warm quilted garbs As trees elevate perennialContinue reading “Patterned Socks – A Poem”
The fragrance of flowers spreads only in the direction of the wind. But the goodness of a person spreads in all directions. – Chanakya
At first glance Gothic styled trees chisel an archway, Hiding a tattered wooden shed with its green canopy. In gracious affinity encapsulating compassion, the tree Perchance plots each branch at just the right schema, Tucking in its leaves accentuating the facade’s patina.

If we could hear rocks sing, What arias to our ears bring. Would they join nesting birds a cappella, Or, praise and worship alleluia. Or, roll with hip hop legends, Lip-syncing timeless ballads, Of history before time began.

But we are children of The light, The flames of the universe. Moonbeams and stardust sparkle in our eyes; Their distant closeness – our mortal expression of eternity.

To revel in the beauty of every twig and thorn. And, looking upward, gaze at the expanse as a reminder – That weContinue reading “Our being – A Poem”
There exists a multitude of Worthwhile things To do on this earth; Far more in the universe. And, failing these, There is an endless supply, Yet to be discovered, In the company of One’s own imagination.
