A yellow candle,
Is a cylindrical Banksia.
A Glowing cone against
The dark green leaves
Is native to Australia,
Pretending to be a single flower
Conspicuous to lure the bees and birds,
To prepare the next generation!
I called an old school friend and asked what was he doing.
He replied that he is working on,
“Aqua-thermal treatment of ceramics, Aluminum and steel under a constrained environment”.
I was impressed……
On further inquiring I have learnt that he was washing dishes with hot water…..under his wife’s supervision.
I was astounded by his creativity and the command of language!!!
(from one of the e-mail rounds)
When summer comes
Jacaranda blooms to hide her leaves
With magnificent purple panicles
Showing off her wealth to the world,
That I am here….
Just came across some images on BBC News Asia published in 2014. These are black and white images of women taken in the era of 1850 to 1950
