VERSE | AARGH! THE WEATHER!

I opened the curtains to the sun peeping through 
Pillowy clouds that were floating around - just a few
I stood at the window, the sleep fading away
I smiled - We were going on our seaside trip today!

I packed up my bag, threw in my shorts
A couple of shirts and two pairs of socks
Even by the coast I traipse around in my sneakers
I grinned as I also packed my Bluetooth speaker

I went to the kitchen to make myself tea
Put on the kettle and looked out at the sea
Visible only from that room - the irony!
I giggled - I’d soon be walking on a soft sandy beach

A steaming cup in my hand, I went to my lounge
I watched a pelican as it flew drunkenly around
It had become suddenly overcast and grey
I laughed, it was going to be a nice drive to the bay

And then I went to the loo for a minute or five
I was getting ready, my partner was about to arrive
I came out to a full fledged tropical squall
I guffawed at the tragedy of the “best laid plans” and all!

I closed the curtains, the sun had been snatched up by Zeus
It was noon but he was obviously in one of his moods
I lay down, took a deep breath, closed my eyes
I sighed - The tropical weather gods loved to surprise!

A wandering “desi” and a corporate chicken who’s flown the proverbial coop is what I currently am. Have chosen the sultry island of Sri Lanka for my wandering/ experiential activities. Writing something- anything really, has been on the bucket list for a great old while. Finally putting some pixel energy behind the cause! This blog is about a wide gamut of stories, opinions, ideas, characters, storms in teacups, extraterrestrials, food for the soul (and some not so much), space (of the cosmic and personal varieties), cutting edge psychoanalytic analyses, and sunsets (Dysania-struck so probably no sunrises!) – all presented to you from a wide array of coffee shops across my modest globe-trotting sojourns. Here’s to enjoying the ride together! https://www.facebook.com/Mahvash.Moht/
