A Walk By The River

21st June 2020


Undoubtedly the year 2020 is half way through and the month of June is running fast. Certainly we are nearing the end of it.  Since Lock Down has ended, who wouldn’t take a walk somewhere nice to catch some breaths of fresh air.  But many of us are scared of this “distancing” thing we are told of.  So much It is not usually our way of life.  And we don’t want to do this kind of act.  But I believe we all feel the same way.

To begin with,  I went out for a walk some days ago.  Of course it is like some fresh air inhaled for the very first time. And I am a regular visitor of the river and all its aspects of living things.   In other words, I was in a place that I haven’t seen for a very long time.  Owing to the river and the ducks,  the birds and the flowers, the trees and the boats – I have missed them for a long time.  Evidently the magical scenery were like wow to me.  Also everything was as usual, fresh, cool and peaceful, tranquil and beautiful.

For instance, at different corners of the river boats were moored due to the Lock Down.  Surely the roses on the river island were blooming.  Similarly all the cottages were lavished with old gates and lush green vegetation.  

Some of the homes were painted different colours.   And they hid behind grown trees and climbing plants. Plus some of them were embellished with old and unwanted decorations in the garden.  But one of the houses caught my attention as an upside down mannequin was wearing two different types of shoes. 

Somehow I came across a beautiful Patriotic cottage.  And a flag was flying its pride in the shades of green trees.  Plus a small cottage was behind a pretty garden.  In addition it had green trees and foliage.   Here on the island homes are scattered on the bank with beautiful gardens overlooking the river. 

Therefore everyone has come out to enjoy some moments of reunion after weeks of isolation.  Plus the birds were happy to embrace the return of the people who brought them bread to be fed.  In addition, the magnificent sacred architecture stood on a high terrace that overlooks the river with beautiful roses growing taller than its wall.

Yet my visit to the river was some kind of therapy to heal the trauma of being kept away from the world during the couple of weeks in Lock Down.  Besides it was a break from tragedy of loneliness.

However this month of June had seen three weeks of constant rain.  Then the weather has not been good either. And it’s of been one day rainy and the next day sunshine.  But the following day was cloudy and dark.  Except today is a Sunday of sunshine and blue skies.  Moreover there is a bit of angry clouds that wants to take over and ruin it.  In the end I hope Sunday will keep its promise.

Equally I wish you all a happy weekend!

    What a gorgeous walk that was! I love to walk by the water too. My dream was to have a house on the waters edge.
