At First Sight

Evening was getting over, and I was wandering down the road. Trees began to chase me with their shadows. Fearfully, I increased my steps rushing the moments of being with my own company.

Slowly, a pale ray crosses my eyes and I reluctantly look up following the trace of the mysterious guest.

On spur of moment, the entire place was brightened and everything surrounding me was shining!

My eyes couldn’t resist to investigate the owner with curiosity. And there it is! Floating in the midst of nowhere. As far as it is, I can still see it clearly.

Round, smooth and full of light! Unlike the way they describe it having uneven surface and rough edges.

However for me it looked perfect.

So calm and quiet. Like a still painting; one could look at speechlessly for hours.

My heart melted as I kept on staring at the night visitor.

Even though I didn’t hear anything, I can sense the feel of vibrations reaching to conquer me completely.

Suddenly I felt it moving away hinting me that time has come for us to part.

Despite the night which came to an end, it couldn’t stop the endless radiance that defeated every corner of  darkness.

It moved slowly across the sky collapsing into the clouds. Reappearing again naughtily,  I then realized that it was love… at first sight!
