Engines roared despite being at a traffic signal with a red light on. The crowd’s senseless honking made me go almost berserk but I kept my calm. A few people attempt riding in the wrong side of the road causing a blockade which led to even louder honking.
A slow, cold breeze passed by easing my mind as I looked up to the sky. Is there anything that can beat the beauty of passing clouds? They moved with such elegance that I could neither hear the noise nor watch traffic. The seemingly endless fleet of clouds rushed like they were being chased, as they were by the wind. Oh! How I wished if only time could pause or slow down! Silky Clouds covered the skies like a snowy, furry carpet. Then they parted their ways, slowly scattering, revealing pale blue gaps of sky in between.
Before I could relish any of this,
“Move it, dude! It’s green!”
Said a rude passerby and tried to start my bike in vain. Something’s wrong; I didn’t wanna miss the sight, so decided to stop at a side and watch the skies but the vehicle won’t cooperate. The comments got brutal and then I realised I forgot to turn the key.
Staggering through the insane traffic, reaching a safe zone, I stopped and looked up to see the sun blazing in all his might. Well, at least I got vitamin D for all it’s worth.
We’re so lost that we forget to enjoy little things in life. Sure, there’s nothing good in being a nuisance in traffic but nothing can beat the natural world around us. Nature is something that never gets old and boring.
