The song of Land

                                                                              Look at these bunches of cassia flowers
                                                                     blooming fresh in May rain showers
                                                                     These dangling, emerald pods of peas 
                                                                     scaling walls right up to the eaves

                                                                     Pumpkins ripening to amber hues
                                                                     chilly pods burn red with untold rues
                                                                      Bottle gourd blooms of diaphanous white
                                                                      swaying in wind like fairies bright  

                                                                     In these mundane scenes I feel rejoiced 
                                                                     for which I toil in sun by choice
                                                                     When berries swell, earth kisses my hands 
                                                                      I hum with the green the song of land.

  2. The sublime mundane! Lovely picture:)
    sab kuchh toh aas-paas hi hai..bus hamein dekhne ki fursat nahin hai.
    Ya phir agar galti se dikh bhi jaaye toh saundarya-bodh na hone ki wajah se koi pulak nahin uthti:(

    1. Bilkul sahi! the old adage of 'Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder' has turned into "...the eyes of the beer- holder":D On a serious note, I completely agree with you. soundarya bodh ke saath saath kabhi kabhi man itna bujh chuka hota hai ki phoolon me bhi kaant eaur taaron ke sang bhi raat ki siyahi nazar aati hai! I am glad to have highly aesthetic and sensitive readers like you:) Thank You!
