Residents, visitors and other beings extraordinaire! 3

“Even the dullest bird or face becomes interesting when you give it a good look in the wild/flesh. The way the shadow drops across the cheek, the light hits an eyebrow, etc… there are many more angles, positions etc. than you can ever imagine. My heart always makes a little jump when I see things in birds or faces that surprise me.” –  Siegfried Woldhek

The more I gave birds and other creatures ‘a good look’ and moved away from their spectacular markings, colours and behaviour; the further I found myself concentrating on their bodies and limbs.

Residents, visitors and other beings extraordinaire! 2

 “I hope you love birds too. It is economical. It saves going to heaven.” –  Emily Dickinson

I once read somewhere, that, ‘there is nothing like attracting birds to a birdbath……It’s also great to watch birds at feeders, but there’s something particularly exciting about watching birds splashing away or sipping water from a bath.’ However, the bird baths that I have, draw more birds than the feeder, and, there are certain bird species that do no use the feeder at all. And yes……………………..a pecking order exists!

Matter of Time

Exhausted and desperate

इक घर

“मकान कई मिले , घर न बना पाए ” – मेघना
कुछ ऐैसी बात कह दी
जो दिल को छू गई,
चारदिवारियों के
इस कठोर बंजरात में
उस,

अब
दुर्लभ होते
घर की ख्वाहिश
ज़हन में ज़हरीली
हूक मार गई।
