As I walked past the trees and shrubs, the enchanting full moon staring at me, what I really wanted was some moment of solitude. On the contrary, the screeching and screaming of the unending vehicles passing by me were creating an undesirable ambiance, much to my irritation.
All of a sudden, I found myself completely alone in the company of darkness and silence. With the bright and glorious moonlight kissing and enveloping the whole milieu, the atmosphere was nothing less than an enigma. The eerie feeling which is synonymous to darkness and silence was nowhere to be found! The brief encounter with complete darkness and silence lasted for only a few seconds. It amused me how two negative aspects like the dark and the silent can create an amazingly positive environment for me – where only me, myself and my string of thoughts existed. For a long long time, I never felt so satiated and so relaxed with my thoughts getting a coherent shape. Alas the sheer ecstasy was not long-lasting – the zooming past of the vehicles again thumped me back to the world of loud sounds and eye squirming lights.
The unassuming beauty when a moment turns out just the way you desire, that too in a busy city during a busy hour, is inexplicable. Having experienced that, now I know the true meaning of ‘enjoy and cherish as long as it lasts’! How I wish I was able to seize that exhilarating moment for a longer time.
