Look how the day rolls in the dust –

ever present, playful.

It stamps out yesterday’s might

and makes a fuss among the treetops

like there’s no tomorrow…

Today, it is.

  1. Exquisite! And that is a totally unbiased opinion 🙂

    • Oh, that is a surprise! I didn’t know it had gone out.I was tinkering around with the blog and was almost coerced into adding this ‘homepage’ (I wanted to get some Google analytcs) … then,I had to put something on it…. you know how it goes!

      Thank you for your affectionately ‘unbiased’ opinion! It’s a day I need it. When are you coming to Delhi?

      • Happy to lift your spirits 🙂 Delhi might not be until late September or November. (Have babysitting duties in October!).
        Hope all is well with you, Meenakshi. Take care.

  2. I noticed that you are using one of my photos that I have in my Flickr photostream http://www.flickr.com/photos/baac3nes/. All my photos with a very few exceptions are copyrighted. That means that you cannot use them without an agreement with me.

    • Dear Borth,

      It’s kind of you to visit my blog. Indeed, I have used some of your marvelous pictures, but I have taken your explicit permission for each one of them if I remember correctly, through Flickr mail. I totally respect your copyright on your work, and would not like to infringe it. The posts that use your pictures acknowledge your copyright, and give your Flickrstream links. If you wish, I will remove the pictures.

      Thanks again, and have a good day, and week ahead.

    A beautiful sentiment, and could it be our silence mirrors the silent universe?, like our lives mirrors the song of the suns?

  6. The juxtaposition of the playfulness of your poem and the commentary following rolls and tumbles along down the page…and today it is!
