I’m in love with the Golden color! :D I’m seeing it everywhere- in my laptop, around me, in the morning, in the evening, in people, ….. Hehehe. And if you have not noticed, I have changed my blog links to a golden shade (Twenty Eleven does that too!), and the main header is in a similar shade as well. ;)
Here is more gold along with golden quotations. :)
“Pure gold does not fear furnace”
~ Chinese Proverbs
“Truth, like gold, is to be obtained not by its growth,
but by washing away from it all that is not gold.”
~ Leo Nikolaevich Tolstoy
“Stories are like fairy gold, the more you give away, the more you have.”
Have a day with golden moments! :)

. . . Golden Touches at the End of a Rainy Day . . .
Clouds throwing numerous shadows
pouring wetness all day along
winds stealing all possible coldness
Winter rejoicing as the mountains shiver
but the warmth is not very far
simply concealing behind the grays
as soon as the winds clear a way
the setting sun steals the evening show
the light brushes through the clouds
making the drenched earth glow in colors
flowers and birds cheer up watching while
everything gets beautified by this make over
Winter still has a reason to be proud
as nature has many hidden surprises
for those who can see and feel
the play between the light and the clouds…
the golden touches at the end of a rainy day!

Inspirations for my poem –
(I hope you can find and feel too!)
It’s great to be able to see the sun in the eyes
That moment, a rare one, when it all rhymes
The sky surprises you and you accept that prize
Nature and its wonders, how they organize
together… to make you wonder and make you wise.
Now, this is a perfect inspiring sunset moment for me! I am grateful. :)

Hope that the Nature inspires you as well. Good day! :)
Red Thorns –
(Green red?!) :D
Isn’t it amazing how the camera adjusts to give another beautiful perspective? I just had to change my position and I got two different views of the same plant at the same time. And, it was easy to get a perfect silhouette (…and no editing). :)
“Lean too much on the approval of people, and it becomes a bed of thorns”
I was feeling very lonely (by PAULO COELHO) [Link here]
I was feeling very lonely when I left Mass in Saint Patrick’s Cathedral right in the heart of New York.
Suddenly I was approached by a Brazilian:
“I very much need to talk to you,” he said.
I was so enthused by this meeting that I began to talk about everything that was important to me. I spoke of magic, God’s blessings, love. He listened to everything in silence, thanked me and went away.
Instead of feeling happy, I felt lonelier than before. Later on I realized that in my enthusiasm I had not paid any attention to what that Brazilian wanted.
Talk to me.
I tossed my words to the wind, because that was not what the Universe was wanting at that moment: I would have been much more useful if I had listened to what he had to say.
It’s always good to share, right! :D
Goodbye for today.
I took this picture months ago when I was travelling. It was too peaceful just to look at it.

Good time to you!.
When out-of-focus –
Shining in the setting Sun…
And here’s the setting Sun –
“Sunset in the Himalayas”
The Rainfall has changed the colors though :)
The following pictures are from my previous posts which fit in this week’s challenge:
Enjoy. Each and every sunset is beautiful! :)
A lovely farewell to the Sun. I was amazed to see the shape of cloud (I hope you notice it too!) and that too facing the side where the sun had just set. I was travelling at that moment and couldn’t help but ask my Dad to stop the car. Incredible “hearty” moment. :)
This shape dissolved within a few minutes for the wind had already done its work and the sun had happily gone to rise again. :)
“Don’t forget- Beautiful sunsets need cloudy skies…” (-Paulo Coelho)
But this is also true- “Nature is revealing to us that life is full of many facets. Whether the cloud enhanced the beauty of sun setting or the sun light colours the cloud….everything depends on everything and could be anything too. It is our mindsets and attitudes that contribute to the quality and meaning of our lives. Nature has many times disclosed such wisdom to us.” (…via Esterina Gan)
