That walk in the beach

29 09 2011

we were driving along the beach road in besent nagar.. woha.. it was an amazing evening.. calm and peaceful.. yeah we chose to drive on a government holiday when most people will be indoors watching TV..

splendid it was.. when we parked the car and took a walk inside the beach.. bare foot.. holding hands.. feeling the breeze ruffle through the locks of my hair was an awesome feeling.. and so was the feeling of sand between my toes… we were talking about those times when we were a young couple.. it was in 1960 when we were married.. I was a 17 yr old then… dint know what it took to manage a family… and now? look at me.. I have grand children..

how much ever things have changed around us.. I’m so glad that, still sometimes He treats me like That 17-year-old whom he married years back.. on and on we walked till it became dark… but it was just 7Pm.. we had asked people at home not to expect us before 8.. it is our anniversary today… so we sat by the waters.. and spoke of the green patches of our life together.. how we stood for each other even when we fought over  the tiniest things…

then he got up.. gave me a hand to get up.. we stood near the water my head resting on his shoulder.. His arm around my waist…and slowly we walked back to the car.. I just dint want the evening to come to an end.. I was hoping with all I ever had that life had a pause button.. so that I could freeze this minute and cherish it for the rest of my life…

Puppy Love

21 09 2011

duke and dusky were neighbors.. they’ve known each other for quite sometime now.. duke has been living there ever since he was born.. and dusky’s folks moved in a few years back.. they have been best of friends ever since.. it was an everyday ritual to go for an evening walk around the park.. it is the most enjoyable thing.. they get to meet their friends golden roz, daisy, tuna, mike, sully and many others.. they all play and then return home after about a while..

But today was different.. the climate was misty so no one came to the park.. it was noon time.. duke had finished his lunch and was pondering outside his house.. occasionally taking glances at dusky’s window.. over time, he has realized that his feeling for dusky was more than being neighbors or friends… he was in love.. and his opinion, today was the best day to declare it.. the climate was romantic and dusky was very happy in the morning when he saw her…

the sun climbed down from the sky.. and evening was setting in.. as always dusky came and both of them strode away from the apartments towards the park… as expected by duke, the other friends had not turned up.. both of them enjoyed running and breathing the fresh evening air for a while.. then as running slowed down to a brisk stride.. duke decided to make use of the opportunity.. as they crossed a private bend.. he said “Woof woof woof woof…woooooooo” dusky was overwhelmed with joy… she also barked “woof woooooo” and both of them “woooood” in unison and fell over each other licking madly in joy..

in the mean time, it started getting dark.. so they walked back home… and ever since, the walk in the park never remained the same..
