Closed eyes don’t see silver linings.
This time you have to come up with a six word story with the word silver in it. Is the artillery ready? 😉
P.S.: Picture by self.
P.S. : I haven’t painted that. A really talented cousin of mine did 🙂
She sat quietly in the corner of the class. At the edge of the seat. She was staring at the blackboard in front of her, thoughts wandering elsewhere. The teacher was writing in white. Her classmates were copying. Her partner nudged her out of her reverie, beckoned her to scribble along.
He loves me.
He loves me not.
Do that ever?
I sat by the window,
Looking out at the sky,
The forlorn bird flying across
The expanse of blue
Touching the chords of my heart.
The small, brown wonder circled around,
And perched atop the neighboring window.
As it shushed and looked around,
It seemed to mirror my state of mind.
How I longed to fly away,
To soar higher than ever
But day upon day,
The burden increased,
Bogging me down forever.
Another sparrow came and sat near,
The two chirping away,
I glanced at my empty beside,
While the pair made its’ way.
Alas! For me there was no escape,
The chains never seemed to unbind,
And so I sat there looking at the blue expanse,
Forlorn, more than ever.
Trying to locate the silver lining,
More hopeful than ever.
P.S.: You may not know it, but you make a big difference in my life, my thoughts, my being. Thank you so much! This is dedicated solely to you! Thank you, Aayush!
