A happy encounter!

“Hey there….how have you been? It’s been a long time since we last met… hope you remember me!” said a voice from somewhere… she somehow couldn’t locate it…wherever she went, she could hear that voice… it was almost as if she was being driven around imperceptibly by it.. “do you remember this ice-cream stall?”, the voice whispered in her ears as she crossed the lane she once visited almost everyday… “hey look there”, she involuntarily turned around while waiting in traffic for the light to turn green..Β and saw a girl running in the rain, barefoot… While entering the gate, she saw her yet again, standing in the balcony, staring at the moon! She finally recognized her…

“Wow…that was slow” mocked the voice…”How could you forgetΒ me?!…I am you…just few years younger thoughΒ and a little more carefree, a little more reckless…I smiled easily, forgave quickly… I remember all your dreams and desires…so good to see you live them now..but how come you left me behind… I paved the way for where you are now… I wish you carried me along a few more miles with you…” the voice murmured…

She smiled and looked away… She always met her when she visited this place… her hometown…!

“Where I was born,

Where I was raised,

Where I keep all my yesterdays!”


I think we all have this one place in this world, which takes us back in time and reconnects us with our older (read younger) selves… It’s such a happy encounter…

This is in response to the daily post “Desire“…

    Loved the take on the prompt.I can certainly relate to that place where I grew up.It is always a little heart wrenching and a lot nostalgic to go there.It is as if you are hit by a massive boulder of memories and moments you once spent there.The quote is so true indeed.Thank you so much for writing it,I felt the same emotions I encounter whenever I visit that place, written out in beautiful words.

    There is no place like hometown – every lane, every bump on the road (or the missing ones that have been fixed) have a memory attached πŸ™‚ Lovely!
