Sriram Janak – Photography

Grass…

                         

 

 

 

                    A child said : ‘ what is the grass ? ‘

 

            Fetching it to me with full hands.

            How could I answer the child ? I do not

                                   Know what it is any more than he.

                                                                                           ~~ Whitman 

 

 

 

 

 

 

                                  …grass is probably a good thing ,

 

                       providing a home for crickets and ladybirds

                                                     and other small creatures.

 

                                                   It  wouldn’t  be much fun living on a planet where grass could not grow….

 

                                                                                                                                                            ( ~~ Ruskin bond )

  2. Somehow, only you could put a photo of grass and yet make it seem like I am seeing it for the first time through the eyes of a child. The accompanying quotes made this memorable for me the whole day! Sharon

      Hahaha…actually many a times we (at least I) do not have answers for such simple questions especially when a child asks them…
      I loved these lines by Whitman and was looking for a proper picture…thought I would be able to get away with the one I have posted…also I found the answer to this question when I was reading Ruskin bond…..these quotes gave me the courage to post this picture ….thank you for taking time to comment Sharon…
      Take care
