Tian Shan beauty

For Kavita

“Tulips are often associated with the Netherlands, but commercial cultivation of the flower began in the Ottoman Empire, comprise many species that together are indigenous to a vast area encompassing parts of Asia, Europe and north Africa. The tulip’s centre of diversity is in the Pamir, Hindu Kush, and Tian Shan mountains. The word tulip is ultimately derived from Persian and it means ‘Beloved’. In Persia, to give a red tulip was to declare your love. The black center of the red tulip was said to represent the lover’s heart, burned to a coal by love’s passion. To give a yellow tulip was to declare your love hopelessly and utterly.” /References- Wikipedia-to read more, press Tulip/

Scattered under the whirls of Tian Shan’s snowflakes,
Enthroned with the empyrean peace of the mountains,
Drifting into tints and dreams,  they stand,
Picturesque, as the glow in lovers eyes.
And smile at ghosts and mistrals, and lens-shaped clouds,
They channel the lives of rivers and rowans,
Myriad psychedelic blossoms glance at the non-existing sun
With the hope, one day to be found.

A sea kiss sent to Colorado Hills

It’s strange how the sunrise holds the sound of violins and words, those words and violins that died drowning in rain and tears, and listening to David Garrett  brings only smiles, where the eyes and the moon tremble sleepy and dazzling, and you and I, we are only imaginary waves in the sea, following the reckless glow of poetry …

Dedicated to the man with opinion!

Aegean sunset

Standing beautiful

Gone withing diamond hours

Lonely in Winter

Virgin and astonishing

Stars

“… I can pretend that things last. I can pretend that lives last longer than moments. Gods come, and gods go. Mortals flicker and flash and fade. Worlds don’t last and stars are fleeting things that twinkle like fireflies and vanish into cold and dust. But I can pretend…”- Neil Gaiman
