twisted-life nature and everything

Life takes its own twist and turns. I could never see straight lines in nature, I guess I have not missed any natural straight lines. Life is also like that when will it turn or twist in one or the other direction no one can say. We have been writing these word prompts and now it’s going to be over from 31st May. It is not easy to get out of a set routine, even thou we all will find some other way to stay connected and stay with each other as blogger community.

Here is my sincere entry for theme twisted for this week.

The first four round images are: First, roots from and a very old Banyan tree in Haridwar, India. Second, a tree spreading its twisted branches in all the directions. Third, a rose made of icing twisted on a chocolate cake. Fourth, a structure made with rods and ringing bells, as an example of the hearing sense, The Five Senses Park, India.

The below three squares have, 1, A fish in a jar with a water plant roots, both twisted to flow. 2, The river took its twist to reach the destination. 3, The Reindeer with twisted antlers, during the Christmas festivities, inside a mall.

A Shell, called Shankh in Hindi, used to make a sacred sound to start any new beginning.

Life is beautiful, with every twist and turn it takes, every twist reveals hidden beauty of life!!

Enjoy weekend!!!😊🌸

Place in the World-under a big tree!

My Place in the world can be Wherever I can find a big tree, where I can sit and observe life around it. The below pictures are from the front yard, an evergreen big tree is there. I spend lots of my time seeing this tree, I hear the sound of this tree when there is a storm, and see it soaking in water when it rains. I feel truly inspired and feel the existence of life. At the same time, I can meditate, I can live inside and keeping an eye on the outer world running around! This is the place where I belong ‘under a tree’!!

A Hidden FoReSt🌳 : BrAnCh🌱

Feeling engrossed how a single word can have contrasting spirits and many branches in one’s life. The single word can have many stories around it. And it becomes very tricky which one to choose and which one to lose. Would the chosen one the most effective or the one which is left would have been more effective.  Ahhh! a typical day is having a lot of branches, apart from what’s going on in life and on this particular day.

Family, friends and loved ones all have great importance in life, just like a tree having different branches all in the different direction. It becomes really difficult to come up with one single emotion at times when you face or hear different sort of news or views from them. At times someone might share a good news and the other might share a bad news, same day and it really seems difficult to feel the right emotion, Happy for one and Sad for the other one. Then the choice becomes, console and show the pleasure to them accordingly, and move on with your own life.

In my school and college days, I used to do lots of gardening and I had good knowledge about that at that time, (maybe I still have that somewhere stored in my brains hard disk  :)). During that time I had created many new plants from branches. It was really an achievement and gave me self-satisfaction to do it without having much knowledge or training. If we see it in depth doesn’t it imply a branch itself can become a tree if provided with some extra effort and care? But yes for every plant the process is different, everyone needs separate treatment.

The same way family trees have several branches and at a certain point of time, those little branches become the main tree nurturing their own branch, leaves, and roots. The life, the world, goes around the branch of different streams. The one having more power, strength and more importance get rooted itself or by someone.

We need to be that essential branch of a big tree with the potential to become root on our own grounds. The demand would be to stay stronger even when there are storms or hindrances in growth.

And there are branches for offices, schools, banks, colleges, classes and higher studies and so on.

One day a branch of a tree asked me,
what would be my future,
would I have the same destiny as the tree,
or would I have my own fate,
I asked,
If you are ready to face the consequences,
if you be courageous to stay alive,
stay fearless against storms on the way,
not get effected of changing seasons and reasons,
You will definitely make your own prospects…
