Company.


Leaves fell as I walked in the garden of hope; it’s not just me that wandered this morning, after those bees, butterflies and dogs that went around. Cozy was the place like the world had a warm sweater on. Took a moment, said goodbye to the cold.

I see a passerby smile, people waving hands as I was passing by. Wind ran wild, finally unchained. The park bench there looked so lonely, I sit a while, give it company.

Come sit with me. Let’s talk, sip some coffee; oh, what a beautiful day it is! Take my time, give me your story.

    So, you know how much I’m loving reading this again n again! You know right?
    So many beautiful lines Bharath, how do you do this?
    Cozy was the place like the world is wearing a warm sweater! What a depiction! We have actually felt this.
    Then the next; Wind ran wild..finally unchained! I’m hinged to this. What you must be thinking while writing this??

    And the last paragraph, what should I say? It’s called Bharath’s touch!
    Coffee?! You know how much I like it and stories? I guess we have a lot to share.

    Saved! I would love to read it again and again.
    I’m envious now! How do you write so beautifully?

    Yeah, that’s evident. The line with which you started, it shows there’s hidden meaning behind those seemingly hopeful lines. So I was extra cautious while reading them. Hope falls, and those lonely Park benches and the atmosphere you described is apt for a scenario describing loneliness. Beacuse everything you noticed, like the dogs, the smile of the passerby, we only notice these things when we are lonely, because we fool ourselves with these small tokens of “happiness” and serenity. When we have someone, we are so preoccupied with their thoughts, that we won’t even notice these small things. What you wrote about accompanying the lonely Park bench, it’s only when you yourself are alone, else we won’t have even thought about it. And yeah, the last para, it sounds beautiful. But again, come sit with me, take my time, is an indication that we are craving for someone who’d give us their time. Not desperate, but a natural need. Sip some coffee, because we need a reason to sit together. (No one does anything without a reason, eh?). Give me your story, can be very well translated to, “talk to me, give me your story, because I am alone, and my story is incomplete, so I don’t have the zest to read it. Hence, give me your story, so that, I have something to do, apart from wandering alone in this park.” Great writeup Bharath. I don’t know if what I’ve written is correct, it was just my personal interpretation of the piece.

    What made you find hope in the garden Bharath!?😅
    Bees and dogs around knew that after sometime, the humans will invade the nature and their peace,
    the cold went away just to have a come back later more fiercely, passersby smiled at you as the little hopes you had, made them feel pity. Wind ran as she knew that the light illuminates the dust it carries.
    And the bench there wanted to make you feel jealous of having the luxury of being empty!!
    You should definitely have some coffee to enjoy the serenity as after some time you will get to know about the fact that it is too a rare commodity!
    The bench sat there to give you company as she knew that you are soon gonna be longing for it.

    Does it sound dark, you tell me!!
    Don’t take my time, but let’s exchange our story. Shall we!?
