its a beautiful day outside.
mammoth of thick gray clouds spread across the wide sky, dominating the hot ball of sun might be a depressing sight for Londoners. but in Pk a rare moment of sun out of sight is a blessing especially during this season. well its equally delightful to see the sun back after a heavy monsoon shower coz then the spell of humidity suffocates you like anything.
however today is neither sunny nor humid..its just perfect.mashallah.
its breezy, cool, a couple of dark clouds moving in a slow rhythm, migrating somewhere else.
its a day to look at the sky. my fascination for the sky, the clouds is evergreen. Newton looked down towards gravity and questioned it and i, the genius queen look up at the sky and still question gravity :p no sense made right? a blog friend recently told me one doesnt really have to make sense out of our writings all the time, guess i am sticking to the advice hehehehe
back to the sky.
unusually i didnt take any pictures of the sky or the clouds today. it was just me, the jhola( the swing) and the sky. the ultimate experience. i took of my slippers and crossed my legs and sat all comfy on the jhola and swung myself a light ride. the cool breeze did the rest. the wind blew softly and calmly in all directions. sometimes a gust of wind blew to my right. sometimes to my left sometimes only to move the leaves at the top branches of the trees. like the yoga masters i took a lot of deep breathes in and out, in and out, in and out until finally i decided its enough before i do something with my only pair of lungs 😛 a lot of oxygen to last a couple of days huh 😛
as i looked at the sky, the bushes and the trees around me rustled and scuffled amongst themselves as the wind played along.
butterflies are a rare sight these days..and as i think of the butterflies and even saw one pretty little thing today fluttering away to the wind, i remembered that its been LONG since i have seen any ‘jugno’ the one Allama Iqbal wrote about, the exotic tiny creature that comes with a bulb 😉
the sight that spellbinded me was of a bird high up in the dark cloud laden skies flying away in a specific area right within my range. right then a flock of pigeons flew above me. then a pair of ‘maina’ ( i still dont know what breed they are called in english) they landed their flight in the lawn; totally comfortable with my humanly presence just nearby. i didnt mention the dragon flies hovering above me and they dont fascinate me, nope they dont 😛 they scare me a bit lol.
so it was these dragonflies and butterflies on the lowest level of the sky, a bit above were the sparrows, the flock of birds that just made an appearance, and on the highest level where i could just see a tiny figure of bird, wings spread wide, flying with the winds or against…
its a beautiful day outside.
