Lesson from the Flower


The whole garden cheers up with one flower that bloomed overnight
The bud looks up to it and sees its future
Any new idea to catch up needs a sample bloom
Especially, if the plant is from beyond the earth!

The bud is in bloom and the flower is retiring
The bud which looked up to the flower
is now where it aimed to be
If it still has something to look up to
we can say the flower is where it aimed to be
enjoying a bloom beyond limitations.

Coucal






Bigger is not better in the bird world. They need more food and water and face higher risk of being caught. From a different point of view bigger is better for the bird watcher. There is more to see and the rarity of sighting them adds to the pleasure. 

VIPs face more risks and spend their life amidst security cover and the people who use their name for personal benefit draw pleasure from the association.

Cuckoo Pair



Observed: Birds never settle down unless they have ensured that their escape route is tested and tried.

Learnt: I should not settle down in this world unless I try, test and ensure my escape route.

Baby Cuckoo













Baby Cuckoo Without A Manual


Woke up at dawn
to find a very small baby cuckoo
settled on a sand filled tub
staying still except for
the tiny breathing movement
indicating life in a strange world
Can't fly and no YouTube video to help
hungry and thirsty but no manual on food intake
scared equally of me the troublesome saviour
and the devil of a cat ready to pounce
No handout on the do's and don'ts of
behaviour with strangers and samaritans
Who is taking care of this tiny creature?
Which internal power is sustaining it?
Can I believe in such a power wholeheartedly?
Or will I keep asking for proof till I learn the lesson

after all my external support system is withdrawn?
