The Wonders of Nature!

Yesterday in the middle of the night, the electricity went off, to add to the amazingly unbearable heat, the inverter gave up aswell, sleeping inside seemed like a crude punishment ...so in order to save our life, we came out in the courtyard and choose a chair, a sofa, each to lay down and kill the heat.... As I was laying down under the open sky, I could see the big round moon, shining brightly and watching over us, it too had a blanket, a blanket of clouds that covered it for short intervals....it looked as if the moon was playing hide and seek.
It's good to be close to nature, it helps us unburden and makes us feel that all the problems in the world are temporary, like the clouds in the sky that cover the moon or the sun, and then slip away in no time.
The moon, the sun, the sky, winds, rain..... perform miracles for us every now and then, its for us to understand and cherish and to realise the fact that the petty things that we crib about are nothing.... absolutely nothing as compared to the blessings that the Almighty bestows upon us..the very fact that we feel alive when a cold shower of rain conquers the unbearable heat is just a small example.

As I looked into the sky,
deep inside the sea of clouds,
my eyes seeped into the royal blue cover,
and there I found, what imagination could never make me wonder,
a universe full of miracles,
of planets , of stars,
of moons and a thousand suns,
and a trait that led afar,
it was a miracle indeed, as miraculous as it could be,
divinity was at its best and enveloped a million galaxies.
I rode on the bubbles of twilight and slipped through the milky way,
and knocked on the doors of heaven, and played at its beautiful gates!
And then it was time, as the sun was ready to spread its rays,
as I couldn't stand it's light, my eyes closed and then opened on a bright new day.

Excellent is the least I can say.
The wonders of nature are all around for us to see. If only we could open our eyes wide!!!

Hello Sana:)

This is a wonderful post with absolutely spellbinding photos. Really first class.

Your post is thought provoking and opens up vistas of inner mind to the divinity and gorgeous beauty that lies all around us at all times whether day or night.

Here in Kochi it is raining cats and dogs and the climate has cooled down. Fortunately we don't have power cuts at present on account of the FIFA foot ball matches and you know Kerala is crazy about foot ball and they will go mad if the power goes off at this time.

Best wishes Sana:)

AJai said...

Sometimes... I look forward to power cuts because you can then go out and see things in natural light. You hardly get to do that these days. I enjoyed reading this post. :)

A New Beginning said...

Thanks Kiran :)

Very true Amal, but its so rare that we indulge in such things..thats why were so stressed out...one must explore life beyond ones world of monotony :)

Very true Ajai, its a treat for sure :)
