I can very much compare myself to a nocturnal species like owls!! Having fondness for nights, I tend to appreciate it’s beauty and uniqueness as compared to other times of the day.
The clouds in the night sky look as if some grey water color has spilled on the canvas of sky. With stars doing the highlights, the canvas looks absolutely mesmerising !! An occasional streak of lightning also contributes to the beauty of the scenery.
Standing in the balcony, one must pay heed to the nightly choir of our knightly insects. Such amazing creatures they are!! – Celebrating their warrior spirit as well as heroism amidst solitude and solace, instead of making it a great show!
The petrichor and the herbaceous aroma of the foliage gives one’s nose, plenty of pleasure. It also calms the mind, leaving you in a fantasy land.
With all the beauty, night carries with it, it also gives me a pleasant atmosphere to work as well as concentrate.
Someone has rightly said, that beautiful things are not boastful or pretend to be bright in the daylight. Instead they shine when the world is dark and asleep…
~Good Night 😉
As the night approached, natural luminous lights slowly adorned the sky. The moon unleashed its divinity and gave out a somber glow to light the path of little Ru.
Ru couldn’t bear the thought of her dearest Grandma being a witch, a sorceress and moreover a “bad woman”.
She ran as fast as her little feet could take her, along the trail lit by her Uncle, Moon. Coming across a refreshing pool, she sat down and thought of the old happy days she had with Grandma. She remembered how the woman cuddled and snugged her up when she was cold. Her lap used to be the most comfortable place for Ru. But now, as she thought, it was filled with impeity and blood of her subjects.
Ru looked down helplessly at the scar on her right arm. It was a witness of her terrible history. She gathered the phosphorescent pool water in her little palms and gently washed the wound. Looking all over the place, for the first time she realised that the place was quite unusual. Everything was so luminous, magical and dreadfully beautiful.
She stared at her reflection in the pool water for a long time, until she could make out a figure of a woman wearing a white robe with pearl headdress. A sense of familiarity struck her as a voice echoed from beneath,
” Go ahead my child.
What your mind says is absolutely true.
The world needs you.
Your subjects need you.
And your mum is with you, in all what you do…”
The raindrop that feels cool on your face has gone through a lot of heat and pressure. It has survived the storms of distress and suppression, but still remains pure and clear. It is only because of the heat, that the raindrop has discovered new realms and colors of the universe.
These storms are a complimentary and unwanted item in every one’s plate of life. It’s how we embrace them and change the odds into evens, while still maintaining our original form.
“We will appreciate the brightness only when we face the darkness”

Sometimes I wonder what makes peacock our national bird…
Its glorious stance, jaunty pace and swift flights can put anyone to shame. In fact, it’s better to address the peacock as ‘he’ instead of ‘it’.
He drags along his long cape of Kaleidoscopic feathers like a king on his coronation day. Also, he has in his possession a divine crown laid flawlessly on his crest.
Looks like he has painted himself with the finest choice of colours! Shades of blue and violet shimmering bright in the daylight.
The beautifully sculpted eyes of black and white can bewitch you!
And when he senses a sweet drop of rain on him, his tail spreads out like an exquisite Japanese fan.
Standing before this magnificent bird and admiring it, gives so much pride and positive vibes, that it is difficult to keep the eyes off!!
There are so many lovely bird species that mother nature has given us, but something about the peacock always pleases me 😊.
~Have a nice day!
Photo challenge: Unusual
Isn’t it amazing to experience all the variations and colors of life while standing at one location ?! The startling divergence of textures and hues in this scenery certainly captured my heart.
Greenery flourishes alongside the golden dryness. Sandy mountains stand before the blinding snow covered peaks. And the river flows despite of all the differences, adding a glimmer to wherever it flows.
Whoever has laid out such wonders before me, here I stand and admire his creation…
Defeat your bed and wake up because…
There are birds chirping in the balcony trying to gather attention,🐦
So you need to wave to your fans!
There is someone who wants to give you a tight hug 💞
And you know you have to return the same!
Poor bed is tired of holding you up!
Have some pity, dear 😊
I won’t like drenching you with a bucket full of water!!
And you won’t like the bed-bath either!😂
The last piece of chocolate in the fridge is going to disappear soon!
And someone’s trying to click your pic while you’re asleep 😶
Get Set Pose!
sleepy umm….nice day 😀

The mighty and colossal mountains look so insignificant from the window of the airplane. But as the plane slowly lands, they seem to grow rapidly as if by the effect of a magical potion. At one point of time you are looking down upon the mountains with sheer pride and the next moment you’re tilting your head UP to face the humongous beauty standing tall and wide 😀.
The flawless contour of the sky with it’s beautiful nuances of blue does not fail to captivate!
Beautiful period of transition indeed!
~Have a nice day 🙂
