#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.

β€œHow 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 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. πŸ™‚ I think children begin to appreciate the food little later than we want them to. πŸ˜€ I’ve a couple of darling next door who used to only want cheese chips.

  2. haha.. Remembered the school days, when a great smelling tiffin was on everyone’s hit list . My story about


    I would suggest impatient as the next word

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

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

    • Yes. I like the twist at the end. πŸ™‚ Takes the reader on a whole other direction.

      Ill? Sounds like something a doctor would suggest, eh? πŸ˜‰ Thanks, Roshan.

    • I like leaving the suspense till the end. πŸ™‚ It makes it more worthwhile writing and reading! πŸ˜€

      That curry is definitely heavenly even now, Sreedeep.
