Awakening

It’s raining—just a drizzle that washes everything anew, leaves are greener, flowers more fragrant, birds chirping. It is the kind of weather that makes one want to smile at strangers. Yet, here I am cooped up for a meeting in a 20 by 20 conference hall. The fake chill of an air-conditioner, the ghastly glow of computers, drowsy faces and stifled yawns fill the room.

    • Thank you so much Himani for taking out the time to read the post and to comment, don’t we – the poets, authors, creators…live (beyond the obvious of creating because that’s the only way we know how to breathe) to know that our words stirred something inside someone
