Happy Anniversary!

You registered on WordPress.com 2 years ago!

Thanks for flying with us. Keep up the good blogging!

This is what I found in my post today.
I had forgotten the exact date but am very grateful for being given the opportunity to thank first my closest who helped me with my first very-hesitant-baby steps into WordPress, patiently putting up with my incessant questioning & secondly all my amazing followers which have amounted to the staggering number of 706!
Something I had never dreamed of 🙂

Your fidelity & constant positive feedback amazes & encourages me every day anew.
To celebrate this milestone & my gratitude, I offer you this photo which is a personal flower arrangement dating from the cold month of February with a rose from a bouquet I had received & leaves I had found on a stroll lying on the ground with such striking colors I couldn’t resist bringing them back home in the hope they would inspire me into creativity which is what happened!

Once again, thank you!

Pink golden or brown you are reality’s delicacy

Upright and genuine
You are reality’s delicacy

Sun soaked bushes for the pleasure of the eye

The sun has lost itself among the bushes
Brushed against the branches leaving a
Trail of light on its way…

Shell-passion is an aftermath of the grain,wind,foam…


Simple pleasures... ©copyright2014owpp

Simple pleasures…

Shells are a passion that comes as an aftermath
Of the grain, wind, foam, the light & sounds…
The Movement.
I managed to find a concave of forgiveness & peace
To perceive art in refuse but when discovering some
Pay a heavy fine… sadness & compassion floods in
Yet is accompanied by the understanding that nature
Prevails, all it needs is a thumbs up & a bit of trust
In its recovery.

P.S I have taken these photos in about three different times so the fish was in one batch & the bird in another.
I’m mentioning what might seem a detail but is not… the situation was not so bad as to have found it all at once
and the pleasure in the other pictures far exceeded hence my belief in nature prevailing.
Nature is beautiful, with it we can live… in its true sense of the word. I must say that I got a few laughs out of passerby’s when they saw me crawling on four with waves catching me by surprise for the shell photos 🙂

Through noise do we decipher silence


Reading silence ©copyright2014owpp

Reading silence
©copyright2014owpp

Through noise do we read silence & through gaps do we decipher noise
As from the pulsating beat of a song
The distant train whizzing through time
Lightning slicing through thunderous
Clouds amidst rumbling nature
The woodpecker’s frenzy
One wave to another
Echoes of footsteps
Stillness crackles as dry wood in a camp fire spitting sparks in irregular
Heartbeats bridging the gaps & the noise in a harmonious breathing exercise.

NOTHING is the strongest of claims

Sometimes,
We are afraid to let go of old habits
Because it might turn us into nothing
But,
NOTHING is louder than all claims
NOTHING is saying I AM
It is saying Different
NOTHING is contrary to claiming
Yet,it is the strongest one…
It is BEING.

We all have preconceived ideas about what hummingbirds’ lives are like, but so much of their world is imperceptible to the human eye. Filmmaker Ann Prum describes the breakthrough science and latest technologies that allowed her and the crew to reveal incredible new insights about these aerial athletes.

“Hummingbirds: Magic in the Air” aired on PBS Wednesday, September 28, 2011 and was part of the 28th season of the Peabody and Emmy award-winning series produced by Thirteen in association with WNET.ORG for PBS. Major support provided by Canon U.S.A. Inc. http://www.pbs.org/wnet/nature/episod…
