The Serene Philosophy Of The Early Morn’ Is Steadying

Hope is a strawberry plucked in the barely light of morning and while no words could do justice to describe the void that was felt, she managed a smile and resumed her daily chores.

“I just wish there was some way I could come and visit you; I mean it’s been nearly two years since the last time we saw each other,” Sanaya spoke with a fervent sigh while washing the dishes during one late afternoon.

“It’s just a matter of few days. Any news on the job front?” Sarah smiled and finally managed to untangle her earphones.

“Not yet but I am keeping my fingers crossed! Did you happen to see the new movie that’s making waves at the box office?”

“Wouldn’t miss it for the world! Get this, a photon is going through airport security, the TSA agent asks if he has any luggage…”

Sanaya after putting aside the dishes goes deep into contemplation and then suddenly yells, “No, I am traveling light,” which resulted into fits of laughter on both ends.

The days turned into months until July finally poked its head out and became the bearer of good news.

“I still can’t believe it!” Sanaya jumped up and down accidentally spilling some coffee on her dress, the feeling of excitement and relief was palpable which replaced woe and poured freely into her verse. 

Today I leave home.  I leave a place that has been my childhood cocoon. I have unlocked the door to new beginnings.

  1. I like the humor in your piece, Sanaa. The idea of ‘traveling light.’ Very subtle and made me smile. Seems the wait was worth it, and happy that July brought good news & that a new beginning is right over the horizon!

  2. Unlocking the door to new beginnings is such a joy at your age. May new horizons be all that you wish for, and better than your dreams. I too liked the traveling light joke. LOL.

    1. Thank you so much, Sherry 😀 your kind words mean the world to me, so glad you liked the prose piece 🍓❤️

  3. I love the ease of their exchange. Knowing that their friendship has been stronger than time and distance says a lot about these ladies. Also, it tells me that our narrator will be just fine in her new away from venture.

    The joke make me laugh so hard–I love nerdy jokes, what can I say? I can’t wait to share it with the not-so-Little Princess.

  4. Lol…Even though I’m no longer youth, I always get excited at the prospect of travelling. And travelling light is my thing. 😀

    Yours is a delightful story. Love the enthusiasm of youth about leaving home and explore the world. I think travel is one of the best adventures one can embark on, especially during their youth. Brilliant!

  5. How I remember that need to be free now that I was grown up to make my own decision and lead my own life. How important that feeling is as you can’t really be yourself until you do.
