    Patches of snow on dry grass

    winter’s ode

    to spring

    Namgay Wangchuk (Thimphu)

    Birdsong

    weaves through Kyichu Lhakhang

    how the monks chant,     in response

    Rich Schnell (Thimphu)

    3,000 metres

    Bhutan’s red rhododendrons

    woolly yaks forage Rich Schnell (Thimphu)

    Purple blossoms bath

    crimsom-robbed monks

    Punakha Dzong’s wall

    Rich Schnell (Thimphu)

    Three crows

    march across a window ledge

    – on their way to work

    Rich Schnell (Thimphu)

    Perfect Bhutan day

    window glass cleaner, yak tea

    toilet paper

    Rich Schnell (Thimphu)

    Taktsang Monastery

    on the backs of monks

    crimson robes, camera bags

    Rich Schnell (Thimphu)

    Drukgyel Dzong fortress

    against invading Tibetans

    in ruins

    Rich Schnell (Thimphu)

    After Losar

    forest fire runs the ridges

    Semtokha Dzong

    Rich Schnell (Thimphu)

    Sooo cold

    the mental patients

    dream to leave the hospital

    Rich Schnell (Thimphu)

    Valentine’s day

    a passing glance

    love, on my mother’s face

    Namgay Wangchuk(Thimphu)

    A distant relative

    cutting dry red chilli

    cold winter morning

    Namgay Wangchuk(Thimphu)

    A silver lining

    across the sky

    nothing like it

    Namgay Wangchuk(Thimphu)

    A moment

    to look into my mother’s face

    captured

    Namgay Wangchuk(Thimphu)

     Blowing bodhi trees

    into suja bowl

    buttery goodness

    Dorji Penjor(Thimphu)

    A clear view

    of a pigeon

    as it flew

    Namgay Wangchuk (Thimphu)

    Feeling the chill… of winter

    exhaust fan

    in the kitchen

    Namgay Wangchuk(Thimphu)

      A glimmer in mother’s eyes

    taken by surprise but still

    … recognizing and embracing

    Namgay Wangchuk(Thimphu)
