Alone… By SHA-1
Loneliness is the time when all sorts of thoughts confuse one, taking them to introspection as she was wondering while walking alone whether she has lived her life in a daze or else why there is so much loneliness, emptiness sometimes in her heart, in spite of being surrounded by relatives, friends, and neighbors, there was something missing in her life.
Suddenly she noticed a Fortune Teller sitting with his caged parrot, waiting for the people to come and know their fate.
Whenever some fortune seeker came, he opened the door, a parrot came out, selected a card, gave it to him, and went inside the cage.
She noticed it never tried to fly away, what’s more, it closed it if the owner forgot to close it.
Was it for food, security or has it become habituated to living alone, loving the captivity, or simply lazy like her who never tried to venture beyond her comfort zone?
Loneliness perhaps is some kind of mental agony.It doesn’t matter how many people are around you, you feel lonely.As for the parrot it is probably contented living in a closed environment . After long years of captivity maybe it’s so used to it that cannot remember anything.else.
So true Ranu. Thanks for your visit and comment.
I agree dear.
love the photo, so much feeling!
I felt this way many times, afraid to leave my comfort zone! It takes courage to step out! Nicely done! ( I had to leave before I could post a comment, so I came back )
Thanks for your comment dear.
Somehow I missed seeing this link on Lillie’s site. You’re so right about the comfort zone. About two weeks after one of our cats died, we had her cremated and then had the ashes buried my OH and I got a new cat. Having one cat already we kept her isolated in our bedroom with the door closed with all of her necessities, litter box, food, water, scratching box etc. After about 36 hours we open the door completely as long as one of us was home. For the first several days she didn’t venture out of the comfort zone of the bedroom she’d been in. After that each day she’d venture further and further into the 25+ foot long hallway which takes you through the rest of the apartment until she made it into the living room. Today she roams and runs through the apartment at will resting and sleeping any place she feels like.
We all have our comfort zone which changes day by day, THANKS for writing this as it is so true to each one of us. Well done,
I appreciate your visit and taking time to comment. Its very encouraging. Thanks for sharing your experience. I’m learning to write as it was always difficult for me to express my views. This writing challenge is good platform for learning and reading nice posts like yours.
Excellent change of view – looking at the bird’s freedom and not the fortunes.
