It was a cloudy, drizzly day. Classes had not started. After reading for almost the entire afternoon in the quiet of my room, I decided to go out for a walk around the campus grounds.

The moment I walked out, I felt the cold chilly wind hit my face, and my bones went cold.

Coincidentally, I saw a guy skateboarding, yes, SKATEBOARDING -down the slope, in all his singlet glory, against the bristling wind and fine drizzle. In contrast, my arms were wrapped around my pathetically thin cardigan, trying to amass whatever warmth I could.  I could not help but smile in amusement at our contrast.

Today, the weather forecast predicts sunny skies, and I’m planning to do a walk around the city. Wish me luck!

Too Long Ago


Too long ago,

my mind could take long, tranquil walks

And was filled with hopeful thoughts

Now those days feel distant, vague

Faded, lost, hard to regain.

Too long ago,

Time was a basic commodity.

Now seconds are a luxury,

And hours, priceless.

Too long ago,

I lived, with furry companions in my life,

And friends by my side.

Too long ago.
