Just playing with the different scenes that come to my mind with this photograph..

late evening -
in the sky, plane trails
meet and fade..

in the sky -
the temporary patterns
of shared journeys

for a short while
the trails left by the airplanes
linger

carried
in the summer breeze
airplane stories

before the fields of gold-
the outstretched branches
of the old tree

birthday morning-
the children awake
singing

the youngest's gift:
bulbs
he planted himself

the eldest's gift:
beautiful running tights
like hers..

the middle child's gift:
a book on enlightenment
bought with car wash money

birthday tradition-
a packet of fudge
shared eagerly

husband's gift:
a beautiful hammock
for two..




















hidden outside-
a gift of flowers
the colours of summer

birthday morning errands-
passing a funeral car
and a learner driver
















birthday-
the rain in the next town
hasn't reached my home















birthday walk-
everywhere
dazzling bluebells




















birthday cake -
the eldest child bakes
with special ingredients..

day before my birthday -
clearing accounts

birthday in another country -
my mother..
remembers earlier

birthday eve-
I finger all the envelopes
from afar..

birthday eve -
the many sounds
from the children's bedrooms..

birthday eve -
setting the alarm
extra early

summer-
his fingers scatter
the blossoms

camellia
catching
the last rays of sun

Sangeet
summer rain -
a Land Rover driver on his mobile
in the fast lane

summer -
indoors
my basil's first flowers..
