Through the Window

As every other morning, he woke up with an unwilling mind, annoyed look and half awaken eyes. He pulled the blinds of the curtain to let the beams of sun brighten his room if not his life. It was that moment he got a glimpse of her. It was her melodious voice he fell in love with. Before he could ask her name she flew away.

Next morning, he woke up with a smile on his face and rushed to the window. He saw her flapping wings as she was ready to take flight. He tried to call her but in vain.

The following night, he layed on his bed tossing and turning evading the bliss of sleep. He was indeed, willing to give up his sleep to witness the unfolding of the miraculous moment.

At the break of dawn, she found a place on the bough and began to sing. With a grin, he opened his window which brought in a gust of wind along with the lovely tunes. He took out his flute and introduced himself through the tunes. In that moment, her eyes met his and he witnessed something beyond words.

After an hour so, he waved her goodbye. Since then, he hasn’t met her ever again but he is longer the grumpy self. He leads his life with heart full of gratitude, love and hope because that encounter with her made him realize his ultimate purpose and helped him find inner peace.

Thanks for reading!
