Wild Weekly Photo Challenge – Scent
“Nothing is more memorable than a smell. One scent can be unexpected, momentary and fleeting, yet conjure up a childhood summer beside a lake in the mountains…”
Diane Ackerman quotes
Smell of natural scents of dried leaves, forest, earth and rice fields are etched in my mind.
A WORD A WEEK CHALLENGE – ORANGE
Orange is one of God’s favorite colors— He stuck it right there between red and yellow as the second color in the rainbow. He decorates entire forests with shades of orange every autumn. It shows up in sunrises at the start of the day, sunsets at the end of the day, and in the glow of the moon at the right time of night.
Shades of orange color
On my way to morning walk
I met a centipede
Walking leisurely in the park
I asked him
“Which foot you move first”
He stopped in his way
Thought but could not decide
I moved on
leaving him there
Searching for an answer.
While coming back
I saw it still there ,
Scratching its head
I asked it what is the matter dear
I was walking before without doubt and confusion
Now I can not decide
Which foot to move first
And this is the cause
Of my strife.
It eyed me with disgust and said
Can not take a right move themselves
but are busy in creating
A lot of tensions
in others life.”

Bob’s Challenge: Framable Keepers Week 17
“Never waste any amount of time doing anything important
when there is a sunset outside that you should be sitting
Prompts for the Promptless – Ep. 11 – Remake!
If I have the power to remake
I’ll change everything which is fake
The attitude of people towards life
towards environment, poverty, religion
and their consumption of natures gift
without sharing equally,
which will lessen their strife.
Then I’ll remake the nature of law about death
Let death come with all its novelty
to carry on nature’s law
Let old age keep its
innocence, fearlessness, and cheer
like a child
it will make death less fearful and
make its impact mild.
