Unhurriedly


unhurriedly
the mountain clouds drift
stirring memories of youth
as youth passes by
hurriedly

Lackadaisical shores


breathing deep, the sea
the waves ~ the woes
the cries, the laughter, the joy
distilling along a lackadaisical
shoreline

Autumn leaves


Waiting for the winter birds – soon a riot of colours at the bird sanctuary? But why is autumn not so colourful  in Delhi? 

autumn leaves
against a sunny sky ~ the birds
somewhere memorising
their songs,
the flowers- later, later

out of the sunset


out of the sunset 
canvas, the steady wing-beats
of an autumn bird



out of the sunset
canvas, the steady 
wing-beats
of an autumn bird,
homewards

Immeasurable skies


emptying, setting free
the evanescent thoughts ~
immeasurable skies

signs of fall



signs of fall
a young sapota at the tip says
not now, not now!



Not all falls in Fall –  Sapota is a summer fruit.'
If someone asks, if it works - it doesn't. The photo is one time and place, the words another ...but the picture has an 'autumn feel'? or so i thought!

the river


the river streaming
down from the sky ~ the beauty
in life’s suffering

the sea turns and waves
as we return
