#nature #landscape #create #god #trees #mountains #sky #blue #colourful #nagaland #india #poem #joycekilmer #roadtrip #naturerideTook this picture in Nagaland! Absolutely breathtaking view. I cannot stop admiring this. . . Reminds me of a poem by Joyce Kilmer. ............................................................ I think that I shall never see A poem lovely as a tree. A tree whose hungry mouth is prest Against the earth’s sweet flowing breast; A tree that looks at God all day, And lifts her leafy arms to pray; A tree that may in Summer wear A nest of robins in her hair; Upon whose bosom snow has lain; Who intimately lives with rain. Poems are made by fools like me, But only God can make a tree. . .
#people #civilization #nagaland #india #past #history #tribal #roadtrip #war #identity #natural #nature #image #paintingThe Naga people are an ethnic group conglomerating of several tribes native to the North Eastern part of India. . As of 2012, the state of Nagaland officially recognises 16 Naga tribes. . The Naga tribes practised headhunting and preserved the heads of enemies as trophies through the 19th century and as late as 1969. . The Naga had little or no contact with the outside world, including that of greater India, until British colonization and rule of the area in the nineteenth century. . During the First World War, two thousand Nagas contributed to the war effort on the European front. In the Second World War, their descendants remained loyal to the British and fought to halt the advance of Japanese forces. . Protestant Christian missionaries from America in the nineteenth century were successful in converting many among the Naga tribes. Today, more than 95% of Naga people identify as Christians, mostly Baptist. . . .

#sunset #nature #orange #clouds #natureride #landscape #evening #peace #bliss #spiritual #life . . . Picture courtesy @travel.grapher"Do you ever watch the sunset And just sit and think about things Just you and the sky and darkness Giving your thoughts some wings Perhaps you've got some troubles And don't know what to do Or you just plain need to get away To spend a little time with you Sunset beauty makes you feel as though Your life has meaning after all To see a sight so extraordinary Makes you feel capable, strong and tall It's funny how flashes of color Like a sunset or sunrise can inspire It can calm your inner self a bit It's a scene you can never tire The serenity gives you a chance To put things in perspective Life can be overwhelming at times And a sunset can be reflective So when the sky lights up next time Let your gaze do some drinking Soak up all the amazing sights And do some sunset thinking!" ~ by Marilyn Lott . . .
