Nature Pure joy

बस यूँही……

The rain lily was happy to be planted in a new environment and each bulb sent out shoots and flowered within 2 weeks of our taking them there from my city home. Nothing is more enchanting than the sight of a fresh bloom with raindrops glistening on its petals, shuddering ever so slightly in the breeze.
Zephyranthes carinata, commonly known as the rosepink zephyr lily or pink rain lily, is a perennial flowering plant that’s native to Mexico, Central and equatorial South America. It has now been widely distributed and naturalized through many parts of the world, including the Caribbeans, Southern and Southeastern US, Africa and Asia, all the way to Japan and the Pacific islands, even Queensland in Australia.  Zephyranthes carinata grows from tunicate globular bulbs 2 to 3 cm  in diameter. The tunics are wine-red in color. Four to six linear and flattened leaves are produced by each bulb. Each is 15 to 30 cm  long and 6 to 8 mm wide, reddish at the bases and bright green for the rest of their lengths.

The funnel-shaped flowers are solitary, with pink to rose red perianths. They are borne erect or slightly inclined on scapes 10 to 15 cm  long. The deep lilac to purplish spathes are 25 to 30 mm  long. There are two lengths of the stamen filaments – 15 mm and 21 mm. The anthers are 6 mm  in length. The style is filiform and the seeds are black and shiny.

किसे दोष दे……?
तेरी नशीली आंखों को या ये अंधेरी रातों को,
तेरे बदन की खुश्बू को या गुल से महेकते बागों को,
तेरे कपकपाते अधरो को या ये कोयल की कुंज को,
तेरी लाल सुर्ख लाली को या चमकती दामिनी को,
घने केश पीछे छिपे मुखड़े को या बादल के पीछे चंदा को,
हम तो होश में होके भी मदहोश रहे, अब तूं ही बता…..

रोखले नयनात आसू ,मी शब्द ओठी रोखले, बघितले नाही तिला मी ,नजरेस माझ्या रोखले ,सांगूच का ह्या संयमाला, का असा मी सोसला, होती आम्हा जाणीव, आम्हा इन्कार न सोसला ..नाहीतर इष्कात होता ,दर्द आम्हाला हवा, पाकळ्यांचे काय ,त्यांचा गंध आम्हाला हवा.. दर्द आहे साथ , याचाच आता भरवसा.. शुक्रिया हे अप्सरांना तुमचा कशाचा भरवसा..

असे बरेच काही अब्द अब्द मनी येते..सर जी तुमच्या काव्य शास्त्र विनोदार्थ चाललेल्या या वारीत खूप समाधान मिळते… सदैव मेंदूस नवीन खाद्य मिळते.
