The Hues of a Tide

Crimson was the colour... Somehow, it was the only colour that came to his mind as he sat in his balcony watching the sun set, as if about to go take a well deserved rest after a glorious day.. Maybe he was watching the world through crimson glasses...

But then, he would have been excused if he was to think that all in the world is beautiful and blessed. For he had just been witness to the birth of a new relationship. Like a bird which is excited when it first ventures out to fly, his best friend had been excited. She could just not stop gushing over the guy in her life. A dreamy smile on her face, she was walking in la la land, and beyond. A mention of the guy was enough to send her face into a smile which would lighten up a new moon night. Talking about the guy, she was constantly fiddling with her locks and blushing. He had the funny vision that the guy might just jump out of her locks, but kept it to himself, though he was hard pressed to smother the chuckle. Not worth the effort, though, for she would not have heard the fanfare which follows a Indian crciket team victory in the Eden Gardens.
As they were talking, once in a while she would just reach out for her phone, excuse herself and send a quick message. All with a blush on her face.

All this was so endearing. Almost enought to convert him. But just about almost. For he knew he was past the stage where he could have been converted into a believer in love. Yet, now that he was sitting in his balcony with a mug of steaming black coffee in his hands, watching the crimson sun on its way out after a good day's work, he could feel a funny kind of warmth all over. Yes, the tide had found her feet....

MAN IN PAINTING said...

Great.
Everything written about love is great.I never doubt love.It starts as a single pulsation and lasts a life time....It had made me from "what i was" and "what i would be" to "what i am.."
What else are we living but for the habit of loving?
There was love in your writing.
Thank you...
