Small is beautiful

To wake up to a faboulous morning....



The warmth of the morning sunshine ....

The gentleness of wind that blows against your face....

The chirping of birds amidst a concrete jungle....

That cup of tea with your confidante(s)....


That communication of effortless ease with certain people....

The brilliant spark of a tiny diamond on a gold band....

The small speck of sunlight amidst the dark clouds....


The hue of thunderclouds before a downpour....

The glide the silvery moon through the grey clouds......

The sesation of waves dragging the sand beneath your feet.....

The riot of colours around you.....

The softness of the pillow as you tuck in....

The clutching sensation of a newborn's fingers.....

The warmth and security mirrored in a trusted's eyes....

The unexpectedness of a pleasant surprise....

The rare feeling of being at home......at peace......

Sometimes experienced in bursts, sometimes in spikes....

Elusive, changing, and always prone to comparison.....

And if denied, it's valued all the more......

It's all out there.....if only you can see it....if only you can feel it.....

Happiness comes in small packages......

Very true. This world would be so much better if and only if humans realise this. Everyone is always after something big.

Talk of hibiscus flowers reminds of the stretch between Blore and Mysore where they have put these plans and whole median will be filled with flowers ! Nothing like it

yup, thats true.. but usually, in the running world trying to catup with everything.. we just miss them.. I feel instead of catching flights... better to catch a bullock cart and feel the realm of nature..isn't so?
