A fresh spring morning, it’s my favourite time of the year! The time of blooming flowers and buzzing bees, with nature splashing colour all around. Today is one such day. I’m back home at my parent’s, the place I grew up in. My occasional visits make my stay a lot more special, and the pleasant weather today is like a cherry on the cake.
The day started with my usual canine alarm, a nose sniffing through my blanket, pleading me to give up the sack and go outside, where a beautiful morning awaited. As I opened the door, still rubbing my sleepy eyes, I was left in awe and gazed in amazement at the nature’s palette. The reds and the yellows, the pinks and the purples, it was all around, everywhere!!
The sun sparkled through the dew drops, the soft breeze brushed my cheeks and I closed my eyes to soak in the freshness that breathed through every being that existed there. My dog carried on with his business, chasing away birds and squirrels, hopping across the flower beds and digging cooling pits through the garden to save itself from the heat of the day. It was on a mission of a different kind.
As I strolled through the garden, I could not take my eyes off the nature’s priceless possessions. The roses blushing in pink and red, the pansies in vibrant multi colours, the marigold in hues of orange and gold, and those tiny yellow flowers that grow through the grass (people call it a weed, but they’re a favourite); it was nature’s bouquet, a very poetic one indeed.
Lost in thoughts, I was transcended into a different world all together. I wondered how the grind of every day routine, had robbed us of the little pleasures of life; that our world had turned grey and black, crowded by gadgets; that the concrete around us had clogged our minds, and we forgot that ‘vacations’ did not need a big budget. Happiness could even mean a visit to the nearest garden. We just needed to step out. I just did.
