Flowers from a colleague who has the same hobby, working accompanied by flowers. A touch of cheerfulness boosts the immunity.

Thanks, MZ!

One Afternoon Of A Tortoise

In the pond of one botanical garden, Ms. Tortoise was enjoying a warm day – oops warm enough to call it hot and she so much wanted to emerge to the surface. Swam, swam and swam…. Diving to see if she could see other fellow swimmers  coming around. Oh, no one!

Ok, far ahead huge saucers are clustering. Maybe I can just perch for a while on one of them, thought Ms. Tortoise.

Swam, swam and swam…. Circling around some saucers which are actually leaves of water lily celebrating the sun ray.

Hop! Hop! Not easy for a tortoise to hop to something. Not easy, but doable. Yups!

Hmmm…. Ms. Tortoise saw on the leave wasn’t better than beneath the water. Ms. Tortoise decided to swim, swim, and swim away…. Enjoy the day!  🙂

Water lily in Borobudur

A small terra-cotta bowl with water

And water lily plant is resting on it

Blooming; blossoms are happy under the sun

_DSC1040 Emitting the spirit of eternity – living without dying, how? Spreading good deed and love to the globe….

The leaf is so near with the mud…. Living so close to the dirt – down to earth

_DSC1032

The color…. so brightly graceful – ignoring where it grows.

See it close…. Details of water lily stun me.

Life is about composing a beautiful friendship by living to the fullest with the outstanding quality of each of the person….

_DSC1041

There was a time when I was so enclosed, look so plain and insecure, hidden in my firm unreadiness to reveal my own self.

_DSC1048

And, there was a time when I was so aware of my tainted body.

_DSC1046

And, when all is done, who can deny the beauty?

_DSC1051

Oh there was something, bothering? Sometimes…. But it was just a bug, a virus named insecure friend visiting once in a while to feel the revealing security.

Ooohhhhhh Ms. Sun, are you so radiant showering me so much light? Thank you….
