Farm Day, Fun Day

When the schools are closed for summer vacation, then it’s the time to explore new places. As I come from a part of the world where we can find a mini farm in most of the houses, I was missing animals in my life. My daughter is an animal lover. “Mama, can I keep that cat?” “Mama, how about a dog?” “Oh! I love rabbits. They are so cute.” “Mama, can we keep chicks or ducks as pets.” These are just some of the examples that she asks about keeping a pet at home. So, we decided to go to a farm today.

The place is so beautiful and serene. A wonderful place for children as well as adults. My daughter loved feeding animals there. Another attraction for her was to find the fairies and their houses. The walk and the nature itself helped me to relax and calm my mind.

Sheeps came running as soon as they saw us. They knew we had their food and I had an excited kid beside me.

Those hens reminded me of my childhood. I had hens, Blacky and Browny when I was a kid. I still remember the day they died one after another because of some flu. My mom told the news when I came back from school. I did cry a lot on that day.

Ducks were hungry so as the goose. So, the goose decided to peck them all to have some food.

While, other geese were enjoying a lazy day.

Turkeys were into some show off mood today, I guess. To be honest, my daughter got afraid of them.

I loved these two and it was so much fun watching and especially feeding them. They are so adorable.

Those piglets reminded my daughter of her favorite character, Peppa Pig. They do love muddy puddles!!

In short, it was an absolute fun day!!

Myriad Hues Of Nature

Yesterday, while walking back from work at around 20:30pm at night, I saw this beautiful sunset. Nature always helps me to relax and I hope that you will enjoy this picture too.

Walking through darkness with thoughts full of colors.

If you’re to choose to paint your life today… What will it be? Remember, you’re the artist, not the canvas.

Val Uchendu

Colors are the smiles of nature.

Leigh Hunt

Sunrise paints the sky with pinks and the sunset with peaches. Cool to warm. So is the progression from childhood to old age.

Vera Nazarian

Let me, O let me bathe my soul in colours; let me swallow the sunset and drink the rainbow.

Khalil Gibran

Poisoned

A beautiful creature inside and out,

Silent in nature by default,

Was prejudiced because of its appearances,

And their screams were deafening to its interiors.

Threatened to stay inside its hole,

Was always chased by others with a wooden pole,

Each time it came out to find its food,

They circled around to beat at its hood.

Everytime it felt insecure,

It would just bite them harder,

But one day the snake was dead on the street,

Where they found, their poison had burst out of its body, poor beast.

Still Walking..

I’m still walking the walk I love,

Where I can feel the fresh air,

See the sunrise and the birds fly,

But where are you?

I’m still walking and taking the same paths,

Where I can smell the blooming flowers,

Touch and blow the dandelions,

But where are you?

I’m still walking on the same roads,

Where streetlights glow at night,

And I can see the moonlight,

But where are you?

I’m still walking and hoping,

That I will meet you on the same crossroad,

Where I decided to look back and found that you were watching me,

But where are you?

I’m still walking…

Immersion

I found myself in a lovely place,

Where a gentle breeze touched my face,

Where the mountains stood with their heads high,

And where the birds flew freely in the sky.

The river was so pure that it mirrored my face,

The grasses were so soft which reminded me to offer my prayers,

Where the sun enjoyed playing hide and seek with the clouds,

And the trees danced slowly in the wind singing their songs aloud.

Then I saw a familiar face which I love dearly,

Those eyes were speaking to me and all I wanted was a hug so tightly,

That we could breath out all our air to the atmosphere,

And release our spirits into that place that we really care.

I Often Wonder..

I often wonder what made the God think,

To create the whole universe with all these celestial things,

Did it give Him the pleasure of making wonders?

Does that include the sound of thunders?

I often wonder what made the God think,

To create all these beautiful living things,

And then make a food chain,

To hunt and kill again and again.

I often wonder what made the God think,

To create us, the human beings,

In different sizes, shapes and colors,

Is that to love or to judge one another?

I often wonder, does the God ever wonders,

Whether it was right decision to make the man wander,

To make him leave His Eden garden,

Allowing the man to take decision on everything including the forbidden.

I often wonder, what would have happened,

If the God had never thought of,

Creating any sort of,

Living or non- living things?

Would that have given Him more rest and peace?

Take Me…

Take me to that garden,

Where there is no warden,

Where I can see all those flowers,

The mesmerizing sight in different colors.

Take me to that place,

Where we can find our space,

Where the grasses are so green,

Somewhere absolutely serene.

Take me to those hills,

Where the pure air fills,

My body and my soul,

Where the fear has no control.

Take me to that beach,

Where the prophets like to give speech,

Where the sun and earth meet,

The horizon which is so sweet.

The Volcano

Once there was a beautiful place with lots of trees, plants, animals and birds. A place like heaven where the day started with the blooming flowers and chirping of birds and ended with an amazing view of sunset and the nights were so serene. A volcano too lived among them. She loved to see lives around her and was proud of the place where she was situated.

One day, the volcano was tagged as an extinct one as she had not erupted for a long time and scientists could not find any activity within her. So, people started to come to this beautiful place to see the volcano as well as to make some business out of it. Many of them who came, were not that gentle towards her or to the place which she loved. They exploited it so much that place started to ruin it’s beauty. As people thought that the volcano was extinct, they used to go nearer to her and threw stones at her. People love to tease and attack something which they think that can’t react, don’t they? It continued for a long time and what happened was unexplainable. The volcano erupted with a maximum intensity and she started to spit fire balls along with the lava and poisonous gas. The whole place was turned to ash and the lava engulfed everything, people, animals, birds, trees and plants. Nothing survived.

Now, the volcano was tagged as active. People were afraid not even to go nearer to volcano but to the place. She waited patiently because she knew that the place will be beautiful and she will be happy. After a few years, she was proud of the place again where she was situated and she lied dormant once again watching the beautiful sight around her hoping that she won’t be tagged as extinct again.

I have tried to make my point using a parable here. I hope that you will like it. Please leave your comments on the topic as I would really love to read them.

Spring on it’s full swing

When nature is at it’s best, all we can do is admire it’s beauty and be grateful for all the blessings of God..

Can’t take another step…

All these pictures were taken today while having a walk with my daughter on my phone. These views gave me so much joy and relaxation that I cannot explain. I hope that you will like them too.
