If only wings could sprout
from these jaded arms…
If only , perched on a branch,
I could watch the world go by….
If only someone would stop
to listen to me warbling ….
Kottayam, in Kerala, is where the Vembanad lake welcomes tired souls .
It promises quietude and delivers. Birds are everywhere but not everyone can spot them easily , at least not all of them. Enjoying this treasure hunt of sorts can be rejuvenating .
The largest heronry in Kerala is a paradise for those who can befriend silence , be patient and look out for subtle movements of these feathered friends.
The waters were unruffled , the birds seemed unbothered and a few worries in this humming head were blotted out momentarily.
