Colors of the New Year (新年色彩)

It's been a while since I posted anything in this blog. But I haven't got a call from the Grim Reaper yet. If there's been  a complete blank out here, I have every reason to shift the blame on to the shoulders of the likes of Spinoza, Leibniz, Kant,Hegel, Husserl, Heidegger, Foucault, Derrida and Deleuze. But the lure of lights, shadows, colors and forms remain as fatal as ever and the clicks of the camera of that black box called the camera remain music to my ears.  
The new year always arrives with  mixed feelings for me: the past is gone and future is yet to come and it's understandable that many feel that that it's as good a time to make a new start as any other. And so, with trepidations and fumbling fingers, I clicked the "write" icon and tried my best to recall how to put together a new blog again
.  

It's mid-winter but it doesn't stop the silent explosion of life.





If the old doesn't go, where shall the new find space?


One can still stand up.


Bursting with vigor


No need to be too flashy
 

We need the sun.
 

So do we.
 

Ah,  yummy!


faded glory
 

a double life
 

dancing
 

getting ahead
 

flower and fruit
 

rising up
 

curling down
 

to each its own glory


sneaking out
 

We had our day.
 

Caution may never be out of place with one's progeny


a clown

No longer funny
 

Looking down on the others
 

One doesn't have to be loud all the time.
 

But not for us!
 

On multiple wings
 

We like it soft
 

We too
 

To feed, first lure
 

Spots and dots for us
 

Difficult to tell which is the petal and which the sepal
 

Water is cool
 

Rushing in the same direction
 

Not very many of us around!
 

Delicate and soft
 

Tenderness
 

Bathed in light
 

End of the day
