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!

Residents, visitors and other beings extraordinaire! 1

“The sound of birds stops the noise in my mind.” – Carly Simon

I am a ramshackle person residing in this ramshackle house. And, as I am forced to live in a city, I have created – in my mind mostly – a small and crumbling forest scenario. It sustains me momentarily and stirs  my soul to live for yet, another day. I look forward to the  company of  this forest’s permanent residents; the visitors and other beings. They stop me from feeling lonely.

Tear-drop by searing tear-drop

I continue to smother

my

unobserved,

tsunami of silent screams,

in an attempt

to totally

wipe memories, off

Quandary

“They say that there are moments that open up your life like a walnut cracked, that change your point of view so that you never look at things the same way again.” – Jodi Picoult

It has been a tough couple of months with alienated alliances manifesting and skeletons tumbling out of various proverbial cupboards! Or is it that I chose not to acknowledge these alliances and not open these cubbyholes?

“…..truth will out!” as Launcelot Gobbo said. But the truth was always known to me (was it?), so why the anguish? Is it because nobody else seems to be bothered about it?

There is a wonderful anonymous quote, “Sometimes it’s not the people who change; it’s the mask that falls off.” When this happens, does one look at the mask or the face that has been exposed? What do you do with the fallen mask? What do you do with the exposed face? Is it really an exposed face or simply another mask? Do you wait for the mask to be picked-up? Do you want the mask to be picked-up? By whom? Should the face be covered again? Whose?

Is it your mask and face? Or mine!

Hushed Tempest

“Memories warm you up from the inside. But they also tear you apart.” – Haruki Murakami

Earlier this month, I was asked to share, if I would, a silent storm of love. The request caught me by surprise and I ineffectually tried to wriggle my way out of the situation. Didn’t work and the harder I tried the wider the grins.  So, you loveable twerps, here it is –  what went before – still silently storming!

Like the wind that

blows the leaves off trees,

you have gently arrived

into the doorway of my life

adding colour and bringing joy.

Having torn pages

from my life’s notebook,

I want to recreate passions

from the past.

 

The churning of images in

my mind,

only magnify the sounds of

a rustling sheet.

The waves of colour

submerge me and I drown

with joy

revelling in silvery-gold downpour.

The music ecstatically

swirls intricate blue sources of radiance;
