Lackadaisical shores

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

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

canvas, the steady wing-beats
of an autumn bird

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

& Oscar Wilde's "To become a spectator of one's own life is to escape the suffering of life.”  -

November twilight

Nov-ember twilight
the sea turns and waves
as we return
