Outburst...of a different kind

It doesn't take much, sometimes, to realize how much love you can feel for someone. A glance, a smile, a gesture, a word, a moment...that's all you need for that feeling to erupt. Love, affection, warmth...your heart is almost ready to burst. So powerful! Words can't capture or express that...they wouldn't do any justice. Do they know or understand the depth of this feeling? You can only hope...from glances, smiles, gestures, moments. 

Saying, sometimes, just doesn't cut it. Maybe an outburst is the need of the hour....or a 'heartburst'!

Listening to familiar tracks....tracks that take you back in time...to a time when life was simple, thinking about the days gone by...days when the fun seemed never-ending, dreaming about the days to come...days that might become as much fun or maybe even a bit more, holding loved ones close...watching them sleep...wondering if they might be dreaming and what those dreams might hold...

It's hard to describe that feeling of complete and total serenity...maybe for good reason.

Under the transparent umbrella

Rainfall...watching it and listening to its pitter patter, the first splash of water hitting your face, little drops that sneak in from the side of the umbrella onto your hands, puddles that make you want to jump into them, buses swerving to avoid water-filled potholes, the smell of fresh water and mud, the birds that happily bathe under open skies...the chain of events that even a little bit of rain sets off is incredible...

Experiencing all this with a loved one on your lap - holding a transparent baby umbrella, oozing innocence, bursting into peals of laughter and squealing with delight every time the rain falls with a dull thud onto the umbrella top - is just priceless.

Things do seem different when seen through another's eyes...with a little bit of transparency and innocence.
