i miss that road


There was a way I use to follow everyday…humming my darling song…inspecting left right every other second…my halt at the book shop…cute kitten of shop owner…smell of new books…chocolate wrappers on the way…dull evening light on my face…yellow gate where the handsome guy lived…plucked thrown flowers of garden…games of stray dogs...wave of kiddos from school bus…speed increment to run away from sticky relatives…
I miss that long journey of little moments.

hehehe...cute memories..ek cycle ride..left a deep impact on us!

Pranav Kumar V said...

You know what?? These roads are only good for yourself and maybe that ONE special person in your life. That's it!! Never take your friends down that way!! At least I wont!! The idiots got me going in circles to find them after they were lost and as if that wasn't enough, I have a 15cm long burn on my leg!! And then I get compliments saying "I" dont know that route!! Darn!! But whatever, it was a fun ride for me myself :D:D:D

See you when I see you... :)

DEbajeet said...

teri latest post padh ke sabko apni cycle yaad agayi :( hehehe isliye bolta hu..kuch bhi chipkaya maat kar... hahahahahaha :D

joiedevivre said...

@ debajeet
huh..toh yeh kitni aachi baat hai..mein sabko beete din yaad dila rahi hu...tujhe teri cycle yaad nai aati bachpan wali gunde..

Resurgence said...

Gal... Yeh kya hai..... missing all the small moments abhi se hi... abhi teri umar hi kya hai.... :)... Good post... somewhat powerful than ur previous ones.. yet I feel that I miss the point... bcoz as far as I have seen in life.... longing for something will not give U that 'thing'... wishful thinking may help but I think if u want something then u need to aspire for it... search it and then find it... why miss the little moments... look around yourself and U'll find many such small moments that define our life every day... treasure them, nourish them as memories and remember they are preserved not to feel sorry about our present state.... not even to long for those moments... but to remind us of the path we have taken to move to our destination.... Maine jo itna arbit bakar likha hai uska matlab samajh me aaye to mujhe bhi batla dena... :)

k.ø.c.h.ü said...
