Outside my Window #WordsMatter

Right outside my window, I see these gigantic hills, now a bright shade of green, thanks to the non-stop rain since the last week. Shouldn’t this inspire me to write a few words or come up with a beautiful poem? I wonder. Alas, no! All I do is take it as an excuse to shut my laptop and stare again out of the window.

The mood is melancholic and I feel tears welling up from deep down inside. When exactly did this gorgeous sight in front of me become dull and unexciting? I’m detesting this monotony and deep in my heart I know I’ve never been this bored, antsy and lazy in a long time. With hardly any families to socialize and the soldier husband almost always out on duty, things are becoming a wee bit difficult. Blogging and reading seem to have taken a step back and honestly, I don’t know what miracle I am expecting to happen right now in my life.

Just when the horrors of my past begin to peer through from the shadowy beyond, I get a glimpse of my garden. I’m sure these flowers weren’t here a few days ago! Am I so lost and disinterested that I have not seen these pop of colors up until now? As if on cue, I take out my camera (after three months, yes, three!!) and begin clicking away.

Outside my Window

A yellow Dahlia…

A red rose…

…and a pink one!

A few hibiscuses…

Jasmine that came all the way from Kerala…

…and Marigold!

Now you have got to help me with the rest! I’m really bad at this!

I should have done this a long time ago! Argh! I feel the spirits lifted. My smile widens as the same old dove from before (you should follow me on Instagram and check my stories) perched upon the cable wires.

I didn’t have to wait much longer for there I see a flock of birds perching upon the different shrubs and trees. The red-vented Bulbul seems to relish his lunch…

… and Mrs. Bulbul keeps a watch.

Lady sparrow is enjoying the fresh air…

…while Mrs.Myna seems to have picked up the spotlight!

But I have the perfect picnic spot!“, Mr. Yellow-vented Bulbul chirped away.

Here is someone monkeying around, only literally!

I see my boy looking really pleased (he loves monkeys!!) and I am now smiling from ear to ear. I seemed to have clearly shooed away that dark cloud which loomed over my head an hour ago.
