Orange and Yellow

 Will you lend me the bright orange dear morning, when the dawn breaks and melts the darkness?

Will you give the yellow sunshine dear noon, when shadows lengthen to rest on garden chairs?

Dear evening, if you walk with me as I go home

I promise to give you a bouquet of orange, yellow blossoms

And share the whispering secrets of the dawn

I might tell you the languid conversations of trees and leave affairs in the afternoon

So that when you meet the night, you can tell the solitary moon what it missed

And then perhaps with its crescent glance would give a silver hue.

To that longing in your heart

Solitary Moon

    Love this conversation, Nupur. You have such a gift for relating to the natural world as if it were a close friend.

    • Ã…h vad kul! Hanna skrev att du var gravid igen :) Grattis! Ska ni ta reda pÃ¥ vad det är? Vi väntar ocksÃ¥ en till, tredje (gah!) men jag är bara i vecka 7.-Mysmasken

    • 171The next time I read a blog, Hopefully it does not fail me as much as this one. After all, I know it was my choice to read, however I really believed you’d have something helpful to talk about. All I hear is a bunch of moaning about something that you could possibly fix if you weren’t too busy seeking attention.

    • I just saw your comment on the blog My Carolina Kitchen saying that you were born in France. So was I. I immigrated to the US after I finished school. I have dual citizenship. You have a nice blog. I’ll come back and look at your recipes, but it is almost dinner time, so I’m going to start with an apéritif of Pernod!Do you still speak French? I cannot get rid of my accent, even after all those years in the US.

    Oh, we should only slow down and have this conversation every day. Thanks for sharing.

  4. I loved reading this beautiful post Nupur. It will help me to become more conscious and take the time to breathe and be more observant of the beauty of nature. Thank you.

    Hi Nupur,

    I thought I commented on this one, but I guess that I did not! I loved this photo. I took one the other day of a sunrise. The photo did not turn out, but it was a really cool sunrise.

      Superior thinking demttsnraoed above. Thanks!

    • It was a sarcastic remark and I’m happy that you responded. It’s the black swan study where industry funded science can’t find one so there must be none. It’s like a study finding that there is a problem with a certain brand of car. The problem is that the wheels fall off at high speeds and we should take great caution to warn anyone. Maybe this makes sense to you?……I am witnessing massive health recovery from people becoming aware and limiting their exposure to wireless radiation.

    • Not sure what this means. It is far more negative than a strikeout. In a double-play situation, it is better to take the risk of striking out than to hack away and risk getting two outs instead of one.

      Acum 9 ani am nascut un copil cu spina bifida si mielomeningocel . Recent am intrerupt terapeutic o sarcina la 22 de saptamani cu acelasi diagnostic . Va rog sa-mi spuneti daca este posibil sa fie o mutatie genetica de vina pt acest defect de tub neural si daca efectuarea cariotipului genetic ne va da vreo sansa la a avea un copil sanatos ? Ce analize ne-ati recomanda , poate o consultatie ne-ar lamuri mai bine ?Va multumesc anticipat !

    I’m impressed! You’ve managed the almost imbeosipls.

  8. sir. vander, marami na po akong narinig tungkol sa inyo, dahil sa Inyong kapatid na si kuya val he is our mentor sa mga kabataan sa church, and I am glad na napadpad sya sa aming lugar, na diagnosed po ang mami ko kanina na may lupus sya, pero mga 2 months ago ay sinabi na po sa akin ni kuya val na lupus yung kay mami, ano po ang payo nyo? siryoso po bang sakit ito? ano po yung mga pwede naming gawin? mga bawal at pwede sa kanya?
