Union

A streak of crimson ran through the sky. It was long past dusk. The night was setting in. Blue was slowly turning to black. There were no stars and the moon was hidden.



All I could hear was the wind and her voice. The wind wrapped itself around her words as they came to me. I listened and watched. I was frozen in the moment. Life buzzed by in the background. Blurred and distant. It was only us.

And suddenly, in the background of the crimson, a lone leaf lost its connection with the tree, and floated down. Down towards us and then past us. Away on its own path. Like our own path. Like the path that we had created for ourselves. Like the path we were on.

U know what, 'Union' was the name of my very first blog entry...and in yet another context. It just baffles me, how differently we think, and then find the same word to wrap the feelings!

That path is the difference between staying attached to the branch of safety, and letting go, and taking chances. Liked the 'Union' title, and all that is wrapped around it.

You have a wonderful talent: your prose is poetic. This piece reminds me of a poem I wrote a while ago...I will post it soon so you can see if you make some of the same connections.

You inspire commenters to be wordy. I'm feeling illiterate. Paths have to be created. And sometimes, they take you awayt from where you're supposed to be going.

Achingly beautiful - you've sketched the picture so skilfully, with such a delicate and sensous hand!

The photograph complements the text more than perfectly!

C'est belle! :-)

Shanker said...

"...Like the path that we had created for ourselves..." Powerful and soul stirring prose.
We always think that we choose our journeys. But did you know that some journeys choose us?......and then we are taken to places where mortal words have no meaning.
