How many amongst us take some time off from our hectic lifestyle to be with Nature?

It is indeed rewarding to talk to a wandering sparrow or observe a lone magpie when we take a customary morning stroll, be it in a park or garden.

Each will have a story to tell, as your mind, unbound from earthly woes mundane, soars skywards with these feathered friends, to rapture!

‘paśyatu vimale’- ‘Look O Vimalā’, says the poet, not to miss the feast for the eyes that unfolds in the sky!

कियन्तः वयं त्वरापूर्णात् जीवनात् विरामं स्वीकृत्य प्रकृत्या मेलितुं समयं पश्यामः ?

प्रातः उद्याने चलनसमये परितः भ्रमन्त्या चटकया सह आलापने तथा एकाकिनः चाषस्य दर्शने च अस्माकं महान् प्रमोदः भवेत् ।

एकैकस्य पक्षिणः अपि कथयियुं कापि कथा स्यात् । तां श्रुत्वा अस्माकं मनः सांसारिकदुःखानि त्यक्त्वा पक्षयुक्तैः तैः सह आकाशे उपरि उपरि आरोहणं करिष्यति आनन्दं प्रति ।

आकाशे अनावृतं नेत्रसुखदं दृश्यम् अदृष्टं न भवेद् इति चिन्तया कविः चोदयति – पश्यतु विमले इति ।

paśyatu vimale

Behold these birds, O Vimala!
Flocks of wings soft n’ vivid
Hornbills, cranes, crows n’ doves,
Peacocks too on a sprightly show!

The cuckoo strikes a melody sweet,
Peacock grooves a tasteful dance
Prying thus on scenes above
Cries the raven ‘ka ka ka!’

‘Hari Om!’ Cries the goose so cute,
‘Ngoom! Ngoom!’ Speaketh the owl,
Flying thus on a stately spree,
‘Tom! Tom!’ sounds the woodpecker!

Hence flies the Mynah into a hole,
Wagtail enquires, ‘How are you?’
Shaking head in full vigour, the duck,
Enters the pond sounding ‘kwa, kwa, kwa!’

The King of cranes meditates thus
The parrot keeps a silence still
To the skies doth fly apace,
Eagle, verily the king of birds!

On the lake floats the Indian Crane
Mind doth find the flamingo too
The morning sky spreads the flocks
Of birds, like-feathered in glee!

Sweet are the songs they sing,
Sweeter still the way they flirt,
The babble sure makes my mind
Rise in rapture with the friends a-winged!
