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.
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.
“Beauty is present in all creation, but the danger lies in the fact that we allow ourselves to be influenced by what people think.
We deny our own beauty because others can’t or won’t recognize it. We try to imitate what we see around us. We try to be what other people think of as ‘pretty’ & little by little, our soul fades.
We forget the world is what we imagine it to be. We stop being the sun and become, instead, the pool of water reflecting it.”
― Paulo Coelho,

According to Japanese tradition, the bonsai represents the three virtues or shin-zen-bi, which translates into truth, goodness, and beauty.
Bonsai trees symbolize harmony, honor, patience, and happiness. They are the perfect addition to a relaxing environment.
Many people associate bonsai trees with inner peace, serenity, and contentment, and while it’s true that most of the people who successfully rear bonsais have these qualities they are earned over time.
