Cloud was born on a hot sunny noon
Where the sun defeats the moon
She wakes up in the evening
And lingers upon the sky.
As big as a giant oh my!
Let’s learn from nature don’t be shy.

She shields us from sun rays
The tree’s are where she lays
As long as we take care
Everything will be fair.
Do we really need pollution?
Lets learn from nature
It won’t be a dare.

She dreams of being fog
Not as stiff as a log
Her mom is the north star
So high,So far
Her dad is the sun
As round as a bun
Why is our sky so gray now?
Because of pollution
thats why!
Lets learn from nature
this is not a lie

Come aboard this cloud
You’ll see the lovely crowd
Going through the sweet,cold,snow
And the hot sweaty show
But if you don’t care
The skies will turn grey
And your life will be dreary
Together we can make a change
Instead of crouching in a cage.

Ponyella was not frightend at all to meet them she thougt that they were friendly.But they were not at all.

Better Taste

Yesterday I found some small sweet oranges . This is something I loved back then. I bought some and shared with my kids..

'' mmm not that great'' ..they did not like it.

Then I realised taste is not just something you feel in your taste buds. There are some tastes that has eternal bonds with our nostalgic memories.

This small oranges reminds me the times of my childhood...while we were travelling to see my grand parents there were some vendors got in the bus at certain bus stands on the way. Of course it was allowed at that time and still it is happening more or less.

My father's home town was little far way. About three hours by bus and it was the most exciting trip for me as a little kid since I get to play and feel the warmth of the beautiful village etc.

Smell of oranges digged the  sweet  memories of my childhood ..that is the reason for me to taste this better .

My girls will have different things to remember and taste better day..I truly wish for them so.

Just to fill my heart

Last bits of spices..

Curries become bland

No wonder they fought

for Cinnamon in my land...

..Night get lightened

 for Christmas or new year

Why all my heart gets dark

with eyes are filled with tear..

Dark sky , misty cold

no bright sun it's gloom

before get worse, pack my bags

Oh, time to go back home.

Washed by the rain

washed by the rain ,sky was so beautiful in the eve . I wanted to picture it for cold gloomy months,,,just few weeks ahead.


what  I miss here ,pretty blue sky with the sun and nights with millions stars which I love the most.

My kids always want to see the stars and rarely we can catch one or two.. in the grey sky. Poor moon ,how lonely it must be feeling .

My lokki [ just a cute way to call my oldest daughter in my language] is so fascinated about stars and constellations .

In Paris ,we went to the Science museum and the planetarium ..oh it was such a good nap for me after a long day but both the girls were wide awake and watching all the session. Lokki just knew Bonjour, and Marci as me .[ all the explanations were in  French....!]

In Perth , Australia were lucky enough to go to the Sci tech Discovery centre with the Planetarium where we had wonderful experience.

She bought a mini telescope just to see the stars. Australians still has the luck with stars. Unfortunately Hanoi is not the place for starry nights. May be we should have visited the country side .

What a surprise , Just today we are lucky . Millions of stars scattered , with the moon. It just wonderful.

Someone might think ,what a big's just the stars. Of course right now it is a big deal for me since most of the nights I am struggling to find a single star not only for my daughters but for the little girl in me who never grow up .

She grew up under a beautiful sky . Nothing to do at night ,just count the stars. it was not the era with Internet..

TV was not very popular..we just had a radio for a long time. Last week I heard my husband tried to explain our Bunny [ my younger daughter's nick name ]  what is radio.

Do not know the progress. only I know that she told   '' it must be so boring''

She must be thinking ''what did those children do without computers , TV and not even Internet..oh my''

It was not the case for us since we didn't know them. We had a beautiful sky.  Seven sisters were my favourite. How much I counted it was six. Still we called  it seven . In my language [ Sinhala] it is called ''Hathdinnath tharu'' . Hath for seven and tharu means stars.

In Sri Lanka we have a public holiday on every full moon day. It is considered as a religious day for Buddhists and most of them would go to temple .

Back then I remember not much street lamps in the suburbs.  Just the moon lit nights ..We sometimes went to the temple at night.. Even not still enjoyed the full moon and stars.

My Ukranian friend has gone to Sri Lanka few weeks back. She told me looking at the sky was a beautiful experience ..

I love that the world has so developed. I like the Internet , that is what I am doing right now. It is wonderful to see my friends , share my thoughts with this technology. I love to watch TV. and my smart phone too. I even play Angry birds while waiting for my Bunny at school.

It is not like I hate the modern things , I just wants to see the blue sky and moon with stars .

I am not the one really, the little girl in me wants it. What can I do......

By the Lily pond with a little girl

Going down the lane

  I met a little girl

  with a book and a smile

she treasured with care

  What a pretty dream

  lying out there

  she had the shiny  pen

I dropped  ..

didn't know where

 Sitting by the pond

we had a pinky promise

    this is our little pen

now we can SHARE.........!!

.....My dear friends's me Bindi  ..Who is the little girl???

I wanted write something for them .

Hope my good old Nelumwila friends can enjoy too.

I am
