#AtoZChallenge 2017 – H for Heavenly

As he walked along, the breeze brought her fragrance to him.

Nithin stopped and took a deep breath, smiling as he did.

Instantly, he imagined what might be in store, and her smile that he had seen just a few hours back.

After four hours, he heard the bell ring. He had been waiting quite impatiently.

“How heavenly is this fragrance, the aroma from mom’s curry,” thought the ten year old, as he opened his lunch box.

My theme for this April is something I call ON SHORT NOTICE. The topic for the letter H is Heavenly, suggested by Suzy, in the previous post. I request you, my readers, to suggest a word with I that might inspire my post for I. I’ll choose one from the options I get, and write on that. I won’t choose the same reader for successive days. Thanks in advance!

Poetry & writing to me are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.

  1. And yet another beautiful post. It’s not easy to deliver a punch line that works every single time. You excel in writing short stories with a surprise ending- The classic O.Henry style..Impressed yet again Vinu.

    The suggestion for I would be Imagination

    • Soon, Tina. 🙂 I think children begin to appreciate the food little later than we want them to. 😀 I’ve a couple of darling next door who used to only want cheese chips.

    • Oh. We never had a 10am break during school days, Namratha, so wouldn’t know. 🙂 The lunch hour was eagerly awaited always, though.

      I’m considering both options, but my muse seems on hibernation till closer to midnight. 😀 Lemme see what she says.
