जिंदगी के मायने ढूंढते रहे।

Reflection

Pandemic put them together in a walking routine. They take a walk almost everyday irrespective of weather.

Scenario1:

She: Awe, look, it’s so beautiful.

He: Oh yes.

She: Can you take a photo?

He: Don’t stop. Keep walking.

She:

They keep walking…

A couple of days later.

Scenario 2:

She: What happened? Why did you stop?

He: Hold my gloves.

She: ” “.

He: The other day you wanted the photo, right? I can take it now.

She: Soon after the awe moment, she explained what frame she wants.

The result you see is taken by him for her. The other day temperature was -11 °C and today it’s -2 °C.

And life goes on.

Random 56: Existence

Lying under a thick blanket.

With no movements, I stay still.

Atomic, scattered & unmasked

thoughts gathering in my dreams.

I struggle to connect the dots.

They overpower my peace

and overstressed me.

I shivered.

My existence proven.
