Laura Trevey and BB&B

Blog hopping in  most cases is tagged by non bloggers as  a  wastage of time. However, for blog addicts like me it is like strolling on a beach and collecting seashells or sea glasses,..... sometimes you find beautiful ones and  sometimes ordinary, and there are times when you find something extraordinary beautiful....and this is what has happened this time, when I tripped on something really very beautiful...a colorful blog by Laura Trevey, named brightboldbeautiful, as the name suggest it actually is a very bright colorful blog, where Laura showcases her beautiful artworks(watercolors) and shares her views on home living , blogging and various other topics, Here are the pictures which will give you an idea of what I am talking about..and to explore further you can always hop on to her blog here :)

Taj Mahal :)

Taj Mahal



                                                         The Taj
                                                                                       

The white marble mausoleum,
                                    Captures every changing hue of the Sun-n-Moon,                                              The five sky-high domes reverberate,
 The subtlest flutist’s notes in perfect tune;
 

          
             The four minarets stand guard,
            While the ethereal Mumtaz peeps through filigree screens,
            And the imprisoned Shah Jahan gazes with dismay,
            From the distant Agra Fort a mile away.




  (Shah Jahan, the Mughal Emperor [1592-1666] was imprisoned by his own son, Aurangzeb
   [1618-1707] in the Agra Fort, a mile away from the mausoleum he had built in
    memory of his beloved wife, Mumtaz Mahal who was married to him in 1612 and died
    in child- birth in 1631)

A long due post, must have been here on Valentine's day, never too late ...This is a short poem on the great "Taj Mahal" written by my dear Grandpa Shri Atul Kumar Jain. I have also requested him to write a guest post for me sometime soon, I am so looking forward to that. :)
