Stand by me

If I was a poet, I would have written a haiku to go with this tree that really caught my fancy during my Nandi Hills trip. I found some lyrics instead:

    “When the night has come
    And the land is dark
    And the moon is the only light we see
    No, I won’t be afraid
    Oh, I won’t be afraid
    Just as long as you stand
    Stand by me…”
Please follow and like us:

  1. I won’t cry, I won’t cry

    No, I won’t shed a tear

    Just as long as you stand

    Stand by me

    Hi Anita:

    This picture itself is a poem.

    I came across this site by chance

    I also looked at the photos found in ‘The The world through my viewfinder’ …

    You have an amazing talent and you will make a great phoographer (if not already..) and may hold exhibitions worldwide..

    Keep up the great work

    Thank You

  3. Thanks Numb and Mehak 🙂

    Ganesh: Thanks a lot for the compliment! And I can assure you that I have a long long way to go before that 🙂 Actually, I’m really keen to continue my painting too, and right now both the hobbies are fighting for attention and I know I can’t pursue both of them with the same level of intensity!

    Thanks Shobha!

  4. That’s a nice snap… I can’t help myself remembering these words…

    A poem worth a life

    Of a few words, unsaid

    A few lines, undrawn

    A single dot, unmarked.

    Written by a tree

    At the crack of dawn

    I shall sing it my remaining life.

    It reads even better in Marathi, the language it was originally written in…

    madame francois,

    it eej “if i were” not “if i was”. even mamzelle dupont would be able to tell you that it is so.

    time to re-read the panda book again, eh?

  6. Sahil: Lovely words! I am sure it would sound even better in Marathi.

    EssBee: Must say I didn’t understand your comment!

    You are welcome…As it happens many times a few are gifted with spontaneous creativity of expression in a many different ways (Photography , Painting , Writing ).. How about posting one/ few of your painting(s) for our viewing pleasure, when you find some free time.

  8. Thanks Chirayu, the picture is mine. But not the poem :)Unfortunately, poems are something I have not been particularly good at. I have made several sad attempts in the past but realised its not my cuppa tea!

    Anita: Got a chance to browse thru the art gallery …the soothing colors of autumn, basket of flowers, sunset or sunrise and fresh veggie look terrific. Although I am not very knowledgeable with technical aspects of painting and colors, still I am happy that I could appreciate nice painting(s)…

    I also read some of your articles written in rediff and like your sense of humor and writing style. (Simple and direct)…Guess what… I have decided to bookmark your page and visit them again.
