Sleep on it!


Sleep on it!, originally uploaded by toothlesswonder.

Children playing, brown women laughing and water gushing down the rocks.
The world moved on as he inhaled the thin spray of water during his mid-noon siesta.

He liked to sleep, you could tell. He liked to sleep, and he was wrathful at men, and their world.

He was free – unlike them - to do as he liked.

serendipity: If i'm madly in love with a place, it would be Kerala.
No place like home, I guess - for the both of us.

Flyaway Mind said...

you have captured the moment.. sivanasamudra???i was planning to go there too..but everytime i plan, it fails :(

the rain tree said...

unplanned weekend road trip??? dats really exciting. my friend wanted to go to dis place but i never agreed. now im thinking...

ToOothlEss WOndeR! said...

lash: Will you buy?
:)


flyaway mind and rain tree: Thinking of it, the place isn't all that great. The whole area around the waterfall is terribly littered, and is full of the chalo-someplace-where-we-play-i-touch-you-you-touch-me crowd. And when it is not them, it is the really loud picnicing folk.
Given the fact that it takes a good 3.5 hrs on bumpy roads from bangalore, I would only give it a star and a half.

Ha Ha... you yawn most of the time ?? Then what happens to your teeth, oh toothless wonder ?
