It just happened, I woke up a bit earlier than usual this morning. Not as early as it was thought, but it is Sunday !!.
I walked straight to the window and looked through it at far away.
I allowed the way wide
open to my imaginations. I saw the sun trying sincerely to hug the horizon or the other way around. I kept closely watching with a lot of interest, and suddenly I found myself floating high in the space with my imaginations. I thought of a different scenario… I thought about a different hugging. I closed my eyes and imagined the sun trying to hug the moon, or may be the other way round. I said to myself, when the moon tries to hug the sun, an eclipse will happen to one of them. If the Sun is the product of an eclipse, we – people – get the darkness and the scary, frightening aura around us, but when the moon is the bray, then, we know that there would be always something in between of them, and that would render the moon to become the victim which would suffer the cold, the gloom, and the darkness. When the moon is eclipsed, it may suffer on its own, and it’ll only shine when the barriers just move away and let the sun to shine on its moon, warm her, enlighten her, and makes her blossom with a broad smile again. Moon’s smile has affected people over the ages, probably the mostly affected were poets, lovers, dreamers, artists, novel and lyric writers, as well as musicians.
While I was deeply absorbed in my imaginations, a little squeak came to my hearing from somewhere which cut my brief snooze and took me away from my dreamy dreams. I opened my eyes again to watch the sun which was still very gently hugging the wide horizon, and a bright light just
started to spread every where around and away from that romantic hug. I then started scanning the whole area around me smiling and feeling much brighter. I loved the shininess, the brightness, the beautiful atmosphere around me… everything was so quiet, tranquil, and very calming. I tried to hear the birds singing at that moment of time, but to no avail. I realised then that we are in the process of saying bye bye to the autumn and prepare ourselves to welcome the unwanted guest… the winter.
Birds do stay in their hide for longer after sunshine, or may instead chose to remain in dormancy until the early twilight of spring starts sneaking carefully behind the horizon.
The whole process has to affect us and encourages us to start thinking, guessing, pondering, and motivate us to open the way wide for our imaginations. We need to be hopeful, optimistic, dreamy, and we need to genuinely trust the future. We need to say to ourselves, whatever the present is, the future will be better and more rewarding. Tomorrow is going to be better than today, and if tomorrow doesn’t honour the promise, then the following day will. We need to see the future, and we need to see ourselves part of it with happiness, satisfaction, and above all… with a big appreciation to the Creator who made this planet beautiful, colourful, and appealing for us to love life and enjoy our living.
