Sun Kissed

photo(12)

It was that time of the day when the wind settled down after a whole day of work. The ruckus on the trees stopped. The leaves whispered to each other in soft voices. The sun became calmer with every step towards his beloved earth. The borders of horizon dissolved in his aura. It was time for him to leave her, with a promise of being back the next day. She believed him, he never faltered. One more time he kissed her good night. The sun kissed earth blushed scarlet.

The Hem of Heaven

What do you see, she asked him as they sat holding hands at dusk.

I see the endless seas he said, I see it embracing me in its arms, making me to be a part of its deep blue aura. It feels like I belong with it. The depth entice me like a mistress.

What do you see, He said still lost in the aqua hue.

I see the orange sky. My imagination flies freely here. There are no boundaries in the sky. I can be anything I want up there. I see clouds. I see castles that are floating at the brim of eternity. I could be the queen in of of them, or just a tiny bird, flapping it wings with all its might to stay afloat. My heart rides the wind.

You see that line separating the blue and orange, he said while pointing at the horizon. That is the hem of heaven, that stiches my world to yours, and yours to mine. That’s where we shall live.
