Last day of November

The serene fall colors glistening on the last day of November. ~ Hints Of Life

Last glimpse of November_The Lake_Central Park.

A view of ‘The Lake’ from Bethesda Terrace & Fountain, Central Park

I envisage the bleak cold days ahead,
but for now; I only wish,
to enjoy the serene fall colors,
glistening under the bright blue sky,
the sun’s rays kissing them softly,
red; yellow; orange shades,
an epitome of  life’s celebration,
the last day of November,
as nature prepares to embrace the change.

Fallen beauty

Fall leaves, falling in the lap of mother earth, reminiscing its old glory~ Hints Of Life

Fall colors_dry leaves_NewYork

The foliage looks just as pretty after it falls in the Central Park Conservancy

The leaves are fallen round me,
fall leaves, dry; red and yellow,
gathered in a hump,
their invisible soul speaks to me,
countless stories of time on earth,
the rise and fall of their destiny,
before disappearing in the soil

say,
falling is good sometimes,
only to come back stronger,
it’s not that we have to quit,
this life one day, but it’s how,
many things we have to quit,
all at once – family, friends,
laughter, love, memories and,
even the joy of talking to a stranger,
if only it would be lost, all not at once

Late Summer sunset

Sunset is the most surreal of all nature’s miracles. ~ Hints Of Life

Sunset @riversidepark

A late Summer sunset by the Hudson river

As the Sun sets behind the horizon,
on a late summer evening,
it looks like a teenager gushing with youth,
glowing so beautiful, it would make you blush

its light so luminous, you feel its radiance in your bones,
its energy so infectious, you smile just at a glance,
its promise so pure, to shine again tomorrow,
and tomorrow…

I watch,
an old gentlemen practice putting on the green grass,
his hands firmly gripping the club, his eyes measuring the distance,
his stance, illuminating in the orange,
adding character to the beautiful,
late summer sunset

Golden Sunset (series) #2

In the midst of a mundane life, you catch a glimpse of the spectacular. ~ Hints Of Life 

Golden Sunset

A regular day, just the mundane routine,
the mood was sombre all around,
the yellow cabs, jolting on the streets

people pacing as if walking on air,
chasing the materialistic desires,
unaware of the beauty that surrounds them,
as if, in a daze

But there it was again,
the breathtaking golden sunset,
radiating, beaming in yellow with a ting of red this time,
always timely,
and, never-failing to please its admirers

Golden Sunset (series) #1

The golden yellow in the sky, an immaculate painting by an unknown artist. ~ Hints Of Life

Golden Sunset_1

The pale curve of her neck, stretched to one side
those soft curls blowing in the wind,
as she looked up at the evening sky

her dusky features complimenting the dusk,
she felt tiny yet strong in the company of nature,
‘hallelujah’, she said out loud

the most beautiful scenery in the sky,
the curly silver clouds interspersed with the yellow ball of fire,
creating the magical golden glow

Sparkling sunset

View a sunset as it were the first sunset of your life. ~ Hints Of Life

Sunset @Riverside

Sunset shimmer and twilight sparkle,
the life in her eyes, a reflection of her soul,
peering through the sparkling water,
her gaze mindful, as if in a hypnotic state

scents of musk and lavender filled the air,
her sensuous kohl eyes smiling softly,
her thoughts deepened, reminding her of all,
joyful times as a child

sunset shimmer and twilight sparkle,
she imagined playing peek a boo with her best friend,
under the Tuscan sky,
the delight of summer in their eyes

a delicate love,
she gazed at the sunset, just a little longer this time,
a prayer escape her lips slowly,
she yearned and wished,
the joy of love to touch her once again

Azure

Azure, the color of tranquility is the color of nature. ~ Hints Of Life

Azure Manhattan Skyline

The wind blew past her like a song from heaven,
kissing her softly, gently like hands as they caress,

her soft hazel eyes gazing at the evening sky,
the clouds painted a many shades of blue,
her inner voice exclaimed, why did I never before notice- the clouds could be like this,

like the sky is the sea and the clouds are the souls of happy ships, sunk long ago,
she said aloud again, why didn’t I notice?
since then blue became her most beloved color,
and as far as her childhood memories go,
azure has been her favorite color forever and ever.

Sunset

Sunset- Riverside

On the green patch of grass she sat, by the Hudson river
admiring the sunset, a zillionth time
among many thoughts that captured her conscious,

the most profound of all, or she did rather call it a desire,
to fly like a bird in the sky,
peering through the myriad hues of the setting sun,

kissing goodbye to the soft yellows and orange
before night sets in and stars sparkle

Red-Eared Slider Turtle

Turtle

He sits on the rock, in the middle of the pond
stretching his limbs wide, he basks in the sun

He is unaware that the pond, his home
which rests at the base of Belvedere Castle, in Central Park
is named in his honor, the Turtle Pond

He is unaware of his braveness, his triumph
‘he’ survived the long brutal winter,
or maybe this is his way of flaunting his victory,

In deep thought….
as I stand here, enjoying his sight
he reminds me of the famous saying,
you never know how strong you are,
until being strong is your only choice.
