Reena’s Exploration Challenge – 104

Here’s another week that promises to be full of creativity and fun.

PROMPT  104- LONG AND SHORT OF IT

You need not get lost in the length. Just choose any three words – by instinct, by closing your eyes and placing a finger, by following a number game (3,27,91 or something like it), by creating an alphabetical logic …. The choice is all yours.

 ( body, beauty, passengers)

 I wake up at 3 am to find my body seems to be gliding through the air. 

My surrounding seems to vanish.

There is just me floating or rather gliding in the air and the star-studded sky. 

My mind, usually a chatterbox is dumbfounded by the magnificence of the scene. 

It’s overwhelming to witness such beauty.

So many times I have seen stars shining in the sky but today it seems so serene, surreal, incredible, divine. 

I’m spellbound.

Am I hallucinating?

It lasts just for a few seconds.

 A jerk brings me back to my surrounding.

 The driver shouts something unprintable to some unknown creature.

The spell is broken.

 I’m on a sleeper AC bus, on the night journey from Hyderabad to Mumbai.

All passengers are sleeping, oblivious to the beauty surrounding them.

Noise and the jerk didn’t disturb them. They just stir and sleep again.

Perhaps it’s their daily business. 

They are habituated to all this.

It is my first journey on an AC bus. 

I thank my luck for getting the window seat and

once in a lifetime experience. 

 

 

 

 
 

About Indira

I knew all along that life is about, love, compassion, compatibility and friendship, but now I have discovered that life is also about sharing the thoughts, encouraging others and getting encouraged. So here I am with my blogs about life, friendship, love, and whatever life has taught me.

  1. Somehow, travel becomes an opportunity to look within. I’ve never wanted companions – for the daily commute or long distance travel.
