To hold it all and never let go...

June 22nd, 2015, 7pm

It was 38°C with few clouds. The breeze was light.

It is perhaps silly of me that I keep coming to this one single thought, of holding it all and never letting go; but the more heart warming thing is that I keep receiving these beautifully untouched, impeccably imperfect sweet nothings of moments; and might I add, always unexpected.

The sunset I witnessed this evening, I wish I had words glorious enough to write the pure amazement that entralled my heart. I was amazed not because I had’t seen the magnificent sky like that before, but because seeing that open sky innocently smiling at me from the rear view mirror of my drive, just stuck a chord that kept a tune alive until I was overwhelmed.

Seeing the sky unravelling like that, the clear white waves that were hardly the usual clouds but fluffy nevertheless, embraced the the big orange sun so gently, that although I could see right around the bright rim of the solid ball of dim fire, I couldn’t help but imagine it melting graciously in the warm, endearing embrace of the ambery-white blue firmament. Somehow, it was more than just regular sunset and yet it was clearly a glorious thing of beauty that nature unfurls almost every day. It was the sky wrapping up her arms to snuggle the sun and at the same time it was a peaceful surreal sun melting into the blue of the sky-sea. All I could do was open myself to it, and let it overwhelm me with a familiar music of my heart.
