Of Evening Colours and Music


What an amazing splash 

of evening colours!

So vibrant … so tranquil,

against the backdrop of

soul stirring musical notes of

home-bound birds –

sparrows and parrots;

cuckoos and crows;

and the dancing wonder, the peacock.

The list, I’m afraid,

is not complete, and can’t be,

for there are innumerable others 

whose names I know not,

but voices stay too familiar,

rather etched deeply, in the memory,

ever since my earliest days. 

What a heady, mesmerizing landscape!

A truly sublime 

parting gift from 

yet another gracious day!
