This open space with absolutely no ornamented buildings, no person walking by, no traffic hustle except the crickets singing their night song and the silent wind flowing by, brushing against my cheeks takes my breath away everytime I sit here at night, all by myself.
All I see in front of myself are bars of iron through which I view the pitch dark night with frequent illuminated patches by the street lights. Up above are the gleaming stars glaring down upon me as I turn my head up and foolishly start talking to them, treating them as entities of wisdom and reverence.
Open. Close. Open. Close.
I constantly do that with my eyes trying to absorb the beauty of the dark night. I take deep breaths to inhale the pleasant aroma rising from the earth mingling with the fresh land breeze. So far away this brings me from the rattles of daily life, the predicaments of workplace & knotted family issues..
The peace and tranquility I need to calm my senses are avilable to me no where but in my apartment balcony surrounded by the smell of the sea in its proximity…my everday solution to spewing out the negative toxins & achieving my temporary solace.
