Treasure hunting for the crown’s jewels

The crown’s jewels
┬ęcopyright2014owpp

To me, the sea, mountains & its creatures living on premises are the crown’s jewels & when we go out there, I like hunting with my loved ones bringing back a testimony to share with all of you the extraordinary every day miracles of a planet we tend to take for granted because we have it & see it on a daily basis.
I’ve got a collection of seventeen photos which I carefully selected including some of the every day occurrence to put you in the ambiance of the unusually sunny, windless shores two days ago!
I hope you’ll enjoy this post too ­čÖé

Summer is a time where we can focus on the small wonders and that’s the result.
Have a lovely weekend!

Coccinelle (Ladybug)
——————-

Oh! Beautiful minuscule
Coccinelle. You climb the
Himalayan finger, drink
From the nectar, travel
Far and beyond the stone
World, cross the colored
Deserts of tablecloths,
Read my books, risk your
Life zigzagging your way
Through treacherous petals,
Knock on my window begging
For entry…

In the space of an afternoon
You were busier and more
Adventurous than any astute
And canny explorer.
