19348Re: Swans and Gods
- Dec 21, 2006...and how they can make one happy...
I just have to share my joy that brought tears to my eyes today. I
wasn't out of my flat for two days. This evening when I went out and
cross the bridge - O God what was this??
Six (Six!!) swans had their gathering at the familiar place and
were 'happily' dancing on the waves of the river. I have come to the
place for over a year and now after telling them that they have
become famous through the internet and should know about it they
spread the message. How clever!
But serious; it gave me so much joy to feel that dear God might have
sent them. However.
When I came back there were four swans left. The other two might have
escorted the fourth and went down the river to their respective
place. God knows, maybe they are hiding under the bridge.
Now there is no single one anymore and the world is in order, no
sting in the heart anymore.
Thank you, God, I am so happy. And thank you, Pavitrata, because your
collage inspired me to write about the swans.
with beaming smiles :-D
