I awoke to a beautiful ray of light, filtering through my blinds. I’m still contemplating to stay in bed, but the thought off strolling through a park, with the cool grass tickling the soles of my bare feet, and the bright sunlight is too alluring to ignore. The cool breeze hitting my face inspires me to jump out of bed.
I impulsively leap into the shower, and I find a select moment in time where the sun rays amalgamate beautifully with the shower particles, and a rainbow appears in my very bathroom. I feel the warmth of a promising day ahead. As I leave the bathroom, I take mental notes of what I intend to wear today. For some reason, I can’t quite put my finger on it but I know it’s going to be a pleasant day, and I have this urge to promptly get out of the door, as if I have an appointment scheduled. As I open the door, and the cool breeze hits me, I’m transported right into the heart of Spring. I hasten to cross the road, to get to my destination; the wonderful park where I intend to spend my morning. I have but entered the park and in front of me – twenty-five yards – is a silhouette of a man with his back to me, admiring the river – absorbing the atmosphere. As I get closer, he turns and smiles. I realise this was what it was all about. As our eyes met, I, for the first time, in a long time, felt a sudden shyness come about me and could not help but look away for a few seconds. When our eyes met again, I found this silhouette walking towards me, with intent. I felt a shudder, and I immediately became conscious that I’m blushing; this hasn’t happened in a long time. I’m thinking: what is this? Why? Why am I feeling these emotions? In the process of these questions, this gentleman stopped right in front of me and proceeded to smile and look intently into my eyes. With that, he very calmly confidently stated: “It’s a good morning and a beautiful day!” I then, went into a daze and I found myself in an embrace, which led to our bodies engulfing into one, and our eyes darting around looking for a secluded spot. And then, all of a sudden, I felt his fingers gently move the strands of hair that covered my right eye, and felt his fingers move slightly down and electrify my entire body. The warmth of his embrace was such that it was clear that we had taken a step too far; there was no return. It was a blessing that so early in the morning, there was not a soul in sight.
I noticed in our embrace, the blossoming of trees and petals, and I clutched the rails as the final moments of joy rushed throughout my body. Within a split second of the former taking place, I found this stranger in front of me saying: “Are you okay?” I realized I was back, and this was all a day dream. And I smirked, and skipped on my merry way, turned back, flirtingly, and winked. I exclaimed: “How could I not be fine on such a beautiful Spring morning?”
