How does it feel...

when,

you see the crisp leaves of a checkbook that bears your name,

you just created an excellent piece of writing,

you see a pretty lady
and...
she takes a really long time to walk past you,

you lose your ear to a humorous jingle amidst cacophony,

you see a date associated with you
that stands as a proof of an enduring relationship,

you are acknowledged for an extremely brilliant joke,

you understand the intricate meaning behind a word
that you mindlessly use everyday,

you see something very simple in design
that captivates you and fills your senses,

you set tears in your friends’ eyes with your joke,

you used your discretion to avoid yourself getting into a disaster
that was threateningly appealing,

you kick a small object that you threw in the air,
in your first attempt,

you realized that you served yourself the right quantum of side dish,

you find an answer to the ‘why-me?’ in your life and
prevent it from happening to others,

you spot something that others are desperately trying to find,

after 15 years of schooling,
you tend to choose lighter shades for your work, on a Monday,

you see a distress-call mail from your friend 13 hours too late,

you look forward for the peaceful sleep, sans the nightmare
that has been stinging you for days?

Like the moment, two days of sleeplessness and a cup of warm milk (just right)later, when the head hits the pillow and fresh sheets (Still smelling like surf excel - clean and pristine) - and the eyelids grow heavy and you know in ur heart of hearts that for the next eight hours, there is nothing to think about!

Lovely piece. You really have an eye for beauty :)

Renuka,
There is no single word to describe all these instances in life :) But, I should say that most of them have the power to convert a normal day into something that we remember even years later!

Very nice collection of pretty little things. I liked the following:

you kick a small object that you threw in the air,
in your first attempt


:-) Remmeber that happening so often in school and invariably fumbling when you had to ensure that those girls sitting on the steps were watching your shot!!!

reNUka said...
