Green day


Today i was a grasshopper..
green as a leaf right after the first rain
roaming freely through the high high grass
in and out of its shadows... warmed by the gentle slivers of sun light that filtered through

raiding ant hills and tickling the little busybodies, teasing them with my antennae

jumping high and higher still.. climbing to the very tips of the shady blades

aaaah..basking in the winter sun at last...
the drugging doping sedating sun

so off i hopped to the huge red lily by the side of the wall.. lay on its velvety petals and dozed off in its welcoming embrace


i explored and wondered
dreamt and lived
touched and felt
smelled every scent
tasted the wilderness of my world
aaah today i gave freedom a heady kiss
the wild green hopper that i was today..

one question,
is this your first blog?
one compliment,
your blog comes across as belonging to a very technically correct way of writing..
cant believe i am giving such a weird compliment with my own limited knowledge, but you gave that impression.
nice!

lol.. I never saw anyone using these words to describe sun before. Not that I saw someone imagining herself to be a grasshopper either! ;)
You got some imagination girl.. & an eye for details. It starts with that feeling of childlike innocence and eventually it grows onto you..
Amateur you don't seem to be.
Whose clone are you babay? :x ;) :P

@vandita
paintings have always attracted and fascinated me.. the vividness the colours the beauty the hidden meanings.. they just take my breath away... but since i can't paint(my few attempts ended up looking like muddy disasters on canvas :D)
so i just satisfy myself with painting with words

thanks

@d sinner
lolzzz it was really not that deep, i was just referring to the sleepy effect of the winter sun

and i don't know whether i deserve all those compliments or not but thanks a lot for such encouraging words..i'll definitely try to live upto them
