Kingdom of Dust

It's a city having a dust-bath.Wherever you look, depending on your proximity to a major construction site-it's a patina of dust or layers of dust that hits your sight.
A million footfalls create miniature duststorms. A river of fast-moving vehicles drown us further into dustsphere.
Boundary walls adjoining the roads have shrubs and overhanging branches shrouded in dust. It's a heart-rending sight; not a speck of green to be seen! If only the skies would open up, for a quarter of an hour or so, the city would be absolved of its bane. No matter how ephemeral, at least plants would not breathe and bleed----dust!

I love....

  • Dew on the bamboo, yellow flowers and orange sunsets, the sound of rain...the whistle of the wind, the rush of flowing water, the smell of woodsmoke, the crackle of a wood fire,the moon in all its phases.......
