88. Macavity, Macavity

The pictures below remind me of a poem “Macavity: The Mystery Cat” by T.S. Eliot, where he describes the mysterious qualities of a cat of villainous character.

According to the poem, he spends his time plotting for his criminal acts and how to carry them out. The sentence that perfectly fill the bill (pictures). 🙂

86. The abyss

I’ don’t know much about poetry writing. But I do think it helps, and very therapeutic. Kindly bear with my effort. At least you’ll find my photography interesting enough. 🙂

when the light lights.

There’s solace in the darkness.

There’s an abyss.

I heard them say Pansy nello. I thought I would easily find it in Google. I tried Pansy Nelo, then Fancy Nalo, then again Pansy Nalo. After that I’ve lost count of my earnest attempt. 😦

83. Myopic perception

Almost always I see a lot of vegetables at our kitchen garden (at present period), but never have I gave much attention to the beautiful flowers it produces. I knew it was there. I guess that we often take a lot of things for granted…

But then again, how could I become so blind to this splendor? When did I inherit a myopic perception?

It’s a kind of funny that we happily allow our daily grinds to swallow all our happiness because we want to enjoy it at later time. Why must it wait for the leisure of retirement when we don’t know what’s going to happen in next 24 hours? A thought that crossed my mind as I began writing the very first para…
