Something Good in Everything I See


I went biking a few evenings back, but was disappointed by an unkempt hawk that seemed weary and not as gorgeous as I could have imagined.


A paddy field, in the other way round, looked prettier even after a long hard day, 


either in back-lighting or the opposite.

Everything may not be good, but there is something good in everything I see. "So why on earth should I moan?" murmured The Beatles.


Colours of sunset had the weeds gone crazy and their body curled and twisted, thinking of slowing down the adrenaline rush.


And I had to race with the sun before it disappeared in seconds, I could have not imagined that too. 

No wonder people says time sinks very fast. 

It sank, from east to west, and has become yours. 

Take it now.

I like the way you ride a bike! Stopping to get these gorgeous pictures. Wonderful. So many times I see people riding bikes as fast as they can with their heads down, not even seeing what they're passing!

This time of year, the day does sink fast. (In fact right now it is 3:30 and I need to hurry up and go outside and play before it gets dark.)

I know what you mean about racing for the camera to catch a sunset...I never get the best of it. It looks like you did. I especially like the second last one with the wispy plants across it.

The hawk is no more soaring high as time has taken her life up!
The paddy field is forever green so long there is rain drop.

AVCr8teur said...

The hawk must have been too mesmerized by the scenery than care about his own rumpled feathers.

Debra said...

Beautiful photos and thoughts....that hawk just had a bed head is all : )

Emm in London said...

Wow, what incredible photos! I love this post! You live in such a beautiful part of the world and I just love your nature posts. They are soothing for a city girl like me.

I don't mind the hawk. He is free at least and not behind bars.
