Random 31: Two is company

Neither movable,

Nor immovable.

It’s the us time

which gives me strength,

to drift alone.

*****

जिंदगी का मरकज़ चीज़े नहीं हुआ करती। 

चंद लम्हें हैं, जो लौ जलाये रखते हैं।

Random 27: Revealing

Revealing

I can be a pillow, shed a tear or two in pain.

I can be a gentle breeze, feel happy in vain.

I offer you my shoulder to lean.

But

I refuse being

part of the crowd,

just a cheerleader.

उसको ग़म में मेरी मौजूदगी गवारा न थी,

बहारों में मैंने उसका साथ छोड़ दिया

Random 24: Illusion

Do I have a lensball?

P.S. This morning I saw water droplets at the end of the pothos leaves, which is also called guttation. That happens through water glands or hydathodes on the tip of the pothos leaf, which release the water.

A beautiful deciduous Azalea Soir de Paris, my most delicate and scented purplish pink flowers with an orange blotch and darker lines are blooming happily. We enjoy the scent even on the terrace. Life is beautiful 😊
