#NaPoWriMo 3


Copy Rights vest with Audi Photography

Burnt patches of beauty


scars are beautiful, they promised
it is testimony.
and she wore them like jewels,
burnt patches of persistence-
not crying out, not dissolving into mush
move on move on, forward forward.

the silver lining will show
the scars will turn butterflies
someday soon, she promised herself
she will come out mighty fine
as strong as a brick gone through a kiln.

Hide not, disguise not, she resolved
let the world know-
scars are beautiful, it is testimony-
of what happened,
of fighting through.

#2 NaPoWriMo 2016






Copyright belongs to Audi Photography



Drenched in midsummer sunset hue,  
returning home,
I drive with the petrichor in the air,
already I smell her jasmine studded hair. 
 
I hear the soft tinkle of the anklets,
as she hurries to find me at the gate,
a smile of relief greets me,
I laugh- what danger is there?

Old is gold, like a silly joke


At the end of all things old, scraping for the leftovers,
a window of opportunity- to save or not to?
A place with no space, why hold on to bygones,
urbanization observing nostalgia will do.

Great things made by hand, pictures only proof,
Children will forget,
old is gold? What a silly joke, they’ll say.

Photo a Day Month 2016. 30/30. Done!

Photo a Day Month 2016 comes to an end! Every year I take up this project, the world takes on a new outlook. I see everything twice, everything with the thought "hmm, would that make a good photography subject?" I've gained perspective and this year has blessed me with some good pictures. 2016 was a success, yeah?
Here the last few pictures. (People subjects is not my thing but with my friend's DSLR, I feel I can work with them :D)
30/30!
