Little beautiful things of life

Three month passed by, confined to home, working in the new normal.
I heard my keypad rattling on, as I dictated my work, then I stopped ….
The melodious tone of cuckoo, the flapping wings of pigeons, hustle bustle outside my house.
I opened my balcony door, there was a beautiful orange sky, birds flying high and low.
I stopped a moment, to take a deep breath, the little beautiful things had gone unnoticed in my busy schedule.

Counting the steps, with music beating into my ears, allowing moonlight to seep in with the floodlights flowing on.
Enjoying the stillness of the dark, accompanied by the pleasing silence.
Wow here I was on my terrace, enjoying the stillness of life.
I stopped a moment, to take a deep breath, the little beautiful things had gone unnoticed in my busy schedule.

I cleaned my closet, overflowing with the books.
Noticing a large number of books un-read, I re-arranged them in an alphabetical order,
I picked a book, sat in a corner of my couch. Hours passed by, with the book in my hand and the story I read melted in my heart.
I stopped a moment, to take a deep breath, the little beautiful things had gone unnoticed in my busy schedule.

Family came over to meet, I cooked my heart out.
From the breakfast to the dinner, all well laid on the dining table.
Laughter hit the roof, food was savoured heartily, gossips going round the table.
A full house of loved ones, things tossed around, a sink full of vessels to wash, all indicating lots of love.
I stopped a moment, to take a deep breath, the little beautiful things had gone unnoticed in my busy schedule.

Virus confined me, there was pain and agony but yet helping me to recognise the little beautiful things of life – I would carry them when my time comes to leave.
