Clouds

Clouds

I love looking at the clouds. My favourite pastime in childhood was wondering if there was different world on the clouds and if there was any way to relocate there. I had once seen cotton candy made. That made me wonder if some one was sitting up there making these clouds.

Have you ever imagined different shapes of clouds coming to life? This always reminds me of the comic strip Peanuts where Linus describes the clouds.

At the entrance of the temple is a beautiful seven storey Deepastamba ( tower of lights). It presents an enchanting sight on festival nights when it is lit with traditional lamps.

The difference

The difference

I saw the sea as the silent form of life, patient, calm and gracious. Then, I saw its terrible form, ferocious, wild and destructive. I was confused.

I asked the sea, “which one is the real you? Are you the thoughtful and tolerant one? Or are you the inconsiderate and roaring one?”

The sea smiled and answered, “What’s the difference?”

The difference?

I was stunned. The only similarity I could see was that both the forms were photogenic. I persisted and asked again, “one is the form of life and the other one of death. Which is the real you?

The sea repeated, “what’s the difference?” But, it must have seen my expression for it continued, “I am the complete one.”

What do you think is the difference?

Breathtaking landscape

I love the sunsets, the way you can stare directly at the sun who isn’t glaring at you like the afternoon sun, the reddish-orange colour of the sky. I think, the colour suits the sky better than its regular blue. I would have loved the sun-rise too had I been an early riser. Well, you can’t have everything.  😉

The sea at night

night sea

Calm air, gushing ocean, solitude and the feeling of bliss. That’s my definition of peace.

What’s yours?
