Oooh! I am a wildflower!

To see a world in a grain of sand,
And a heaven in a wild flower,

Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,

And eternity in an hour.

William Blake - Auguries of Innocence

Nobody knows this little Rose

Nobody knows this little Rose
It might a pilgrim be
Did I not take it from the ways
And lift it up to thee.
Only a Bee will miss it
Only a Butterfly,
Hastening from far journey
On its breast to lie
Only a Bird will wonder
Only a Breeze will sigh
Ah Little Rose -- how easy
For such as thee to die!

--- Emily Dickinson

Really, Who am I?

'I died as a mineral and became a plant,
I died as plant and rose to animal,
I died as animal and I was Man,'

A view of the courtyard!

How much I love,
looking through
these intricately carved meshes
in the balconies
of such old majestic forts.

The black-woven veil
setting me adrift
to the sati queens
and the psychedelic kings
of such old majestic forts.

The Thar Experience - Mehrangarh Fort, Jodhpur

Mehrangarh Fort stands a hundred feet in splendour on a perpendicular cliff, four hundred feet above the sky line of Jodhpur. Burnished red sand stone, imposing, invincible and yet with a strange haunting beauty that beckons . Much has been written about the Citadel of the Sun, for truly, it is one of the most impressive in all Rajasthan.
