Seeking you…

 

What you 

 

see

 

is seeking

 

YOU.

~ ` ~   Rumi

Care about…

On GLOBAL TIGER DAY…

 
No one will protect what they don’t

 
care about ; & no one will care about

 
what they have never experienced.

 
                             ~ ` ~  David Attenborough

Fade away…?

 

Life, it seems, will fade away

Drifting further every day

Getting lost within myself

Nothing matters, no one else…

 

No one but me can save myself, but it’s too late

Now I can’t think, think why I should even try…

 

    (~ ` ~ Metallica—fade to black)

One Minute…

 

 

 

                             

 

                         

                            It is difficult to live in the present,
                                      ridiculous to live in the future

,
                                                               and impossible to live in the past.
                                                 Nothing is as far away as one minute ago.

 
                                                                                                       ~ ` ~ Unknown

Crossing…

 

                   Many rivers to Cross

 

                              And it’s only my will that keeps me alive

                                    And I merely Survive because of my pride

 

                                                    Many rivers to Cross……

His presence…

arms as I got my camera ready…

 

 

 

words cannot do justice to

 

what we eperienced…

 

 

 

feeling his presence…..

 

 

 

 

the intensity of those

eyes…

 

 

The beauty and the

 

colour  & stripes…

 

 

 

feeling

 

his radiance…

 

 

feeling his

 

strength…

 

 

feeling his

 

presence….

 

 

 

 

 

The elegance of his

 

Stride…

 

 

 

His movement &

 

stillness…

 

 

 

 

His presence…

 

 

 

I was walking on air ..
