I always sit with my back to the window. It pleasured me to listen to the strange wild sounds, A variety of them, making my evenings harmonious; Leaves, birds, insects, and frogs Occasionally macaques, making creepy noises; A beauty had come calling this evening! At the bifurcation of a thin old snag, There perched, … Continue reading A fellow with empty casque.
The smell hit me, Tingled all my senses; Made me take a deep breath; I, actually, took a couple of deep breaths. Broke a small piece of it, And put it on my wet tongue. As the flavour mingled..

An overcast morning! Waking up to the smell of petrichor And to the song of the warblers, Took me a minute to comprehend The preciousness of that moment; Arranging my coffee filter and Pouring the right amount of water, I listened to the symphony of Drizzling rain, bird songs, and dripping decoction!

Food and water. Check! Clothing and shelter. Check! Jewelry and furniture. Check! Socially active. Check! Glory and fame. Check! Poverty. Don't matter! Calamity. Don't matter! Recession. Don't matter! Global warming. Don't matter! Mortality. Ha ha, never heard of it! Created, protected and worshiped by us, If only, reality was given such a fuss!
