Luna’s Glow!

HeonCheol LEE@pixabay.com

The ebony sky paints a dark story

desolate heart gazes at the duvet of inky velvet

blowing tendrils of smoky melancholy.

Lo behold, a speckled orb, bathed in luminance

emerges behind the onyx clouds

devours the monstrous darkness.

Its bewitching glow spells pearly magic

pervades the expansive nihility

infusing the soul with esoteric effulgence.

Photography – What a treat!

Lens Artist photo challenge #120, hosted by Tina : What is a treat for you.

Life is such a roller coaster ride. The ups and downs give us highs and pull us down at times. In between there are plenty of tiny moments or treats that delight us. A series of such memorable moments make life beautiful 🙂

The morning sky bursts into a countless clouds smiling down at you 🙂
And a bunch of beautiful white roses join in…..Isn’t that a perfect start to a great day?
A lazy morning under the canopy of green. Tea, book and nature’s sounds for company. What a relaxing treat that was!!
The eyes bedazzled by the glitter of lights from atop the Burj Khalifa, Dubai. It was truly a magnificent sight to behold!

A long drive just after the lock down, empty roads, nature cleansed of all its pollutants, was an absolute pleasure. Soaking in the fresh fragrance of nature delighted the senses.
Home made chocolates for some sinful indulgence can never go wrong 😉
Holidays with family is always loaded with fun. This picture was clicked from a cable car.

Magical Mountains!

In response to Linda’s Socs prompt:

My Life Story!

The life’s mirror reflects

a face matured with the grace

glowing to the mellow radiance of sunset.

Chapped lips smile, braving the many

 harsh winters of life with courage.

Each wrinkle unfolds a story of grit and valor,

 walking on the arduous thorny cobbled trails.

Today,

The eyes reflect benign complacency

watching the seeds then sown

sprout into lush verdants.

Towering boughs spread out

as deep roots embedded with values hold them strong.

The road I chose

 didn’t bestow me much material prosperity,

but,

my soul amassed a wealth beyond measure

my sanguine heart brims with contentment,

I lived each moment, as a celebration of life!

Sadje’s What do you see #52

When Lines & Angles meet…

The scientific intellect looks at precision

creative mind perceives art

amalgam of concrete and abstract

conceptualises a strong foundation

of parallels and perpendiculars.

Angles and planes work in tandem

with radius, degrees and arches.

Measured definitude of intersecting lines

formulate symmetric congruence.

Scalar dimensions constructed

permutations and combinations decoded

functionality and aesthetics merge

to conceive and design

an architectural marvel!

Just a thought…

Though the pandemic is ready to celebrate its first birthday in a couple of months, it is still the topic of conversation. Life turned topsy-turvy since its arrival. The virus,  its spread, prevention and recovery analysis, social distancing, the side effects of too much digital time, mental health, immunity boosters, lock down blues, unlock phase have all dominated discussions across the globe.

A question popped up recently during one such talk we were having at home.

Thanks to the giant strides in technological progress and the global link, everything or everyone today can be virtually connected to.  Online business, work from home, virtual classrooms, zoom meetings are all trending today. Though not in physical form, things are happening across the digital platforms sans the actual joy of meeting and bonding. Life is moving on, slowly limping back on track.

Coming back to the question, what if the pandemic was born earlier, in the pre digital era, say in the 1970’s or 80’s? How would people cope with work and school? What about buying their groceries and milk? And the numerous other things which we today do online with ease.

How would man have dealt with such a situation back then?

What are your thoughts on this?  Do share!!

Each grain of sand

gently cascades down

at its own pace,

as minutes to hours to years pass.

Since eons, till eternity

in the infinite realms of universe,

for reasons known or unknown

life happens,

without a rhyme or rhythm.

Between

 the many sunrise and sunsets

 the dark and light

 the regrets and letting go

the improvidence and foresight

the scars and smiles

the heartbreak and love

a transformation or regression

a rise or fall,

the boundless space is consumed by

 clash of emotional encumbrance,

till realisation dawns

that between yesterday and tomorrow

the only time to be alive is today,

to make a choice

to be in the “Now”,

to free the soul,

before the last grain in the

hourglass of life

drops down

to be lost in the vast dimensions

of the sands of time.

Photography – Communication!

“The most important thing in communication is to hear what isn’t being said”. Peter Drucker.

They seem to be catching up after a long time 😉
Aren’t the tempting colors inviting the children and grown ups into a sweet world?
The print media was the most powerful form of communication back then!
The language of music is universal, isn’t it?
The blue expansive waters, witness to the changing times, narrates tales of yore to the receptive ears!
The bond of love between mother and her baby is universal in nature!
Finally, sending love to Baisini from this part of the world!
