Super Saturday - Viewing Super Stars

Six Words Saturday
splendid summer evening spent watching stars..

Six Words Saturday
I wonder where the days disappeared
Well, actually I know they didn't
I spent them elsewhere, not here
But now I return, re-energized (hopefully)
:)

Saturday Snapshot : 
I discovered this photo last night - I was scouring through the snaps taken over the past few weeks and I have no idea when(actually the when is there on the photo details), where, how (well, of course, accidentally) I took this one.. but it intrigued me and I loved this snap so here it is for Saturday Snapshot..

For Quote It over at Freda's, the theme is Rare
My posts do seem to appear rarely nowadays! But I hope to make this a thing of the past.

“Common sense is as rare as genius, - is the basis of genius” - Ralph Waldo Emerson

For dVerse Poetics, Karin has us walking down memory lane to wake up our muse. And I thoroughly enjoyed it.


I remember
Days before we spent our days in front of the TV
Lazy summer days I walked home with my nose buried
In a book, and my head bumping into streetlights – under the bright sun
School days of walking home with friends
Making the path way shorter
Evenings spent playing childhood games,
Sounds of kho, lagori, statue, and more
Making inlines into today as I recall the shor
Nights awash in AIR India wavelengths
To the words of ‘Yeh Hain Aakashvani’

And the more recent ones
Memorable firsts of  my little ones
I remember when he took his first step
When she took her first tumble
When he handed me the paper scrap
Motioned me to put it in the trash
When I found her mouth chewing
And a part of an insect wing peeking between her lips
To first days of school and to late night yesterday
Looking through telescopic eyes into a cluster of stars
Whose light left it 25,000 years ago

And there are those faint remnants of memories
that appear in dreams repeatedly
Are they memories or dreams?
I don’t know but they make me happy
They must be a forgotten memory!
