shadows...that dance with mind

Shadows that made my mind dance
that made me chase the light
that made me appreciate the forms and shapes of life
In appreciation of the almighty,the sun god..
A poem which keep on repeating in my mind,when i take my camera to shoot the shadows

Where shadows chase light

This is my delight,
thus to wait and watch at the wayside
where shadow chases light
and the rain comes in the wake of the summer.

Messengers, with tidings from unknown skies,
greet me and speed along the road.
My heart is glad within,
and the breath of the passing breeze is sweet.

From dawn till dusk I sit here before my door,
and I know that of a sudden
the happy moment will arrive when I shall see.

In the meanwhile I smile and I sing all alone.
In the meanwhile the air is filling with the perfume of promise.

Rabindranath Tagore
that allures me ...
love the feel
blurdness and clarity of the shadows

the chair
betel leaf and wooden shades
this takes my breath away
the forms and shapes ,i love them all...hope you all love them...

A Morning at my Garden

The day dawns in softness and that gradually evolves into brightness in the sunny side of the garden.
A morning cup of tea and the camera.,

A keen awareness of the activity stirring around me begins to fill my senses.
And from this calm, sunlight streaking through the dawn, the gentle sounds of buzzing and fluttering begin to break the silence.
in a delightfully, familiar sort of way.
Fluttering and the tweet tweets of the love birds at home,greenery of the betel leaves ,the fallen flowers and leaves,an experience in its own....
The garden that shared my childhood and its memories
Fairly tropical in feel,my moms carefully tended garden,bonsais as old as us.,...
I am thankful for the gift of this small reminder to slow down and absorb the essence of every experience in this place.

I'm at once wholeheartedly aware once again ~~this is where I belong. This is MY moms garden.

Finally the tea rests under the pentas flowers...,on the garden path..
I am enjoying the pampering and love at home,will be here down south for a while.....
