Even ants go house shopping




Once a little sugar ant
made up his mind to roam -

to fare away, far away,
far away from home.

He had eaten
all his breakfast,
and had his ma's consent

to see what he
should chance to see
and here's where he went:

Better be merry!


How long,
how long,
in infinite
Pursuit
Of This and That
endeavour or
dispute?

Better be merry
with the fruitful
Grape
Than sadden after none
or bitter,
Fruit.












Be Merry With the Fruitful Grape
By: Omar Khayyam

Avalanche




High up
a front of flowers
cascades down
plashing from leaf to leaf
spawning further falls

I dew, do you?

     Let your
           life
               lightly 
                      dance
     on the 
             edges
                   of Time
     like dew
              on the
                    tip
                       of leaf


Rabindranath Tagore

The apple of my eye




























Youth is like spring,
an over-praised season
 more remarkable for biting winds
 than genial breezes.
Autumn is the mellower season,
and what we lose in flowers
 we more than gain in fruits.
Samuel Butler
