touche'

It's drizzling. A soft pitter-patter. The day was windy, we could feel the breeze caress our face. While we debated whether to enter the class or not. It was pleasant. It being accentuated with the smell of wet earth. While we still could savour yesterday's programme.

The sky outside my window appears blue laced with red. A signal that indicates rain, time and again. A blushing sky.

A slight drizzle pitter-patters gently, to kiss the parched ground. Raindrops can be heard on the window-shield. Silence provides suitable company.

Water continues to fall from the red sky. For quite some time. It disappears very quickly. Like a rabbit leaping into a secure environment of bushes.

I am keen. Expecting. In the midst of a mundane schedule; running between classes.... trying to keep track of practical classes.... sipping water on the way to the bus-stop..... warding away mosquitoes.... shopping for groceries....

Raindrops will soon touch me. Communication, between the heaven and me....once in a while.....

mouna said...

anon,
really?? :D

what is greater than a communication with one's inner self?? to understand the mind... according to me meditation is the best.... the enthusiasm that i obtain from it, is so uncomparable!!

little things make a great impact on our lives, it's just that we fail to appreciate them!
