Veins of Life



The same stream of life that runs through my veins night and day runs through the world and dances in rhythmic measures. It is the same life that shoots in joy through the dust of the earth in numberless blades of grass and breaks into tumultuous waves of leaves and flowers. It is the same life that is rocked in the ocean-cradle of birth and of death, in ebb and in flow. I feel my limbs are made glorious by the touch of this world of life. And my pride is from the life-throb of ages dancing in my blood this moment.

from Gitanjali

Rabindranath Tagore

Anya said...

Very good text,
pretty words,
and its the true ...

When nothing in life
seem to go right.
Never quite sure,
what tomorrow might bring.
Knowing everything
is for a reason,
the only thing that I can do
is be my self ;)

(Beautiful natural green leaves,
and the veins I can clearly see.)
;)

I really like how the veins of life in the first photo start as pink and gradually give way to green on the edges of the leaves.

Lovely shots. Funny how that plant is soo common here in the Phils but we seem not to notice its beauty. I just revived a plant like the second one here in my house.

Hope you can visit my WS here.

Perfect title for these images. The veins of life have come out very well in these images. It looks a tad soft on my lcd though.

Thank you Indrani for taking the time to vote for me in photoblogawards. Appreciate it...Thomas
