Spring Thread


Still there was some life left in spring thread

Still some apples were not ready for grass bed 

While Spending another day in fruit picking I learned 

How to bow head

Still Orchard was either golden or red

Still there was some life left in spring thread

While enjoying another harvest day I learned 

Colors of fruits bring more beauty than autumn shed 

Heavily loaded plants were touching the ground 

Today I saw fallen fruits in FALL all around 

Still there was some life left in spring thread

Still Gala, Northern Spy, Ambrosia were not spread

Spent another day with nature and farm 

Fog and wind were there as winter alarm 

Still orchard leaves were not ready to be called dead

Still there was some life left in spring thread

Haldi Pakhi – Turmeric Bird


Bhartiye bird under Indian fig

Looking here and there

Resting or waiting for a meal?

She is yet to reveal

 

Known as “Haldi Pakhi” in Bengal

Bhartiye bird under Indian fig

Body, like someone applied turmeric

Colorization by Nature is mesmeric

 

I saw her under friend’s tree

And bad photographer under me

Bhartiye bird under Indian fig

A small bird not so big

 

A very vibrant creature

Head, like colored from Coal

Lovely looking yellow Oriole
