Sojourn

Have you ever felt solace among the strangers? No questioning eyes. No fear of judging you.

My journey in a train, best moments of solace of everyday life begins with music filling my ears. Tunes soothing my soul,flowing in my mind and rejuvenating it as rain drops falls on thirsty barren earth.

My toes are tapping on the beats of 'Hiding My Heart' by Adele. Have you seen her? An inspirational personality. She had said once"People are starting to go on about my weight but I'm not going to change my size because they don't like the way I look."

What is beauty? Does "Beauty lies in the beholders eyes" sounds rusted as it's quoted over and over again? Practicality haven't touched it yet.  


"Everything has its beauty, but not everyone sees it"

I close my eyes, pondering over many such questions. The wind ruffles my hair lovingly and blowing away the obscurity. This is beauty! I can feel it.

I hear the wind saying notoriously, "Hey beautiful! Where is your smile?" ;)

Dimpled smile twinkling in my eyes envisioning the most awesome scene of the travel : The creek.

Dancing tidal waves, wind touching the surface creating ripples, clouds showering its love, droplets caressing my severed skin and dripping away the pain within..

Warmth of the sun, reflection of the moon, romanticizing night as if whispering to me, "We love you" and the James Morrison's track "I won't let you go"starts to play in my mobile. 

Alluring, elegance of the horizon always make me wonder. The union of sky and earth is an illusion.

Is destiny like the horizon? Do you believe in it? If certain thing is out of the bound of my imagination, I depend on it. I am not talking where prime requirement is of hard work.

I had a conversation with a friend on this, who had said,"if destiny works...good enough...if no..then you are on your own..in getting what you want...holding onto destiny won't bring you closer to destiny...it just means..that for few things..you are counting your destiny/fate to help you....but even for that...we have to make our moves ourselves"

The reply made me rethink. What's your say on it?


Fear of unknown
What's this sinking feeling about?
Colors all around
Why does black feels more friendly?
Sounds of laughter
Why the waves of anguish?
Emotions are not camouflaged
Then
Why do happiness seems to be a mirage?


My last stop is arriving, I bookmark the page of 'Pride & Prejudice'. How will you distinguish pride from vanity? As they say, "A very thin line" :D

The train halted. I won't call it as "My destination", cause I will be on this journey again...in My Mumbai's lifeline <3

As I step down, I keep humming,
"I believe in the sun, even though it slowly rises
I believe in you, even without realizing
I believe in the rain, though i see no cloud in the sky
I believe in truth, even though everybody lie"

Beautiful new template..life is a trip where we find answers for some things and on others just more questions...Nice write

~*Princesa Fiona*~ said...

This is such a beautiful post ~ I read it earlier today and decided to come back later to read one more time before commenting :)

I have felt solace among strangers ... really connected to that thought. I also believe in destiny. I remember seeing a quote on Facebook that one of my friends had on their bio:

"I can walk away from everything, but I can't walk away from my destiny."

I always thought this was very profound and true.

"Dancing tidal waves, wind touching the surface creating ripples, clouds showering its love, droplets caressing my severed skin and dripping away the pain within.. "

Mmmm, a virtual 'massage' :)

P.S. ~ Love the interior decorating ;) It's an ethereal setting especially for all the beautiful imagery floating in this post :)

Lilangel said...

Love the new look :) The post is beautiful and brings a smile...:) Destiny is a beautiful enticing magician who spins the wand whenver it feels like but yet a lot of us somewhere would want it minus the hard work :) ...I love Adele and her songs :)

Manshaa said...

Of songs and journeys... the songs and the journey have given your disjointed thoughts a nice flow. Thinking of destiny, yes I do believe in it for it gives us the answers when we fall short of reasoning on things like you said- 'out of the bound of my imagination' :)

And the one line I could relate to the most is- 'What's this sinking feeling about?'

P.S: All the new pics on your blog (all of them put together) are a thing to watch. Wow!

A guilty conscience said...

@Gargi
There is always some take away from Paulo Coelho's books...and 'The Alchemist' was the first book I had read of his.

Good Luck to you and Keep Smiling :)

Why does black feels more friendly?
I have a similar line in one of my poems .. and hence this one struck a chord.
Quite a mesmerizing post. Liked it immensely.

First off...Beautiful template :)

And secondly a even more beautiful post! Seriously, the life line gives you ample amount of time to think and imagine, create an illusion yet live in reality! It's good to be in solace and your lucky you travel from a place where you can be in solace and in peace too..you get to sit in peak hours:P

Ok jokes apart, really this piece is by far the most soothing post I've read by you...and the verses in the end are like cherry on top! :)

Lovely, Aria di..you are really melodious !
