Yesterday, like every other morning these days, my new normal since lockdown, I was sitting near the flower-bed balcony of my flat which happens to be on the 10th floor of the skyscraper. A steaming hot cuppa of coffee was giving me a company in my solitude. The aroma of the vapors was revitalizing my energy to gear up for the day. The eastern sky, that very time, decided to present a two-hander act.

Here was the Sun shining in all its glory and proclaiming its dominance over the skies as well as over the life on Earth. While it was ascending, a prodigious dark cloud assisted by the light morning breeze decided to steal the show.

Probably the rain God is working hard these days, making the clouds in its backyard and decided to send one to test the skies or maybe to deflate the ever-rising ego of the summertime Sun, I contemplated. In no time, it covered the sun for a good few seconds.

Sun however being the star remained undeterred. The breeze then took away the challenger with it. The dark cloud vanished like thin air in no time leaving the blue sky for Sun to rule once again.

The two-hander act was over with the Beatles song “Here comes the Sun and I say all right”, playing in my mind, in loop!

Lovely lovely lovely. I too see this dance of the sun and the clouds and reminds me of the Nursery story of the battle between the sun and the cloud. It is very restful to sit in a balcony and enjoy your daily cuppa watching the sky. How beautifully you’ve captured this peaceful time .

Well, your poetic text about the sun and the clouds was a very pleasant surprise, but the biggest surprise was that you like the Beatles. ☺
Have a nice day, Anagha!

The sky is beautiful with or without clouds. But when there are clouds, we can appreciate it even more! 🙂
Beautiful shots and beautiful music!

That’s a beautiful view, Anagha. I’m glad that the dark clouds passed away soon.

    Anagha Yatin · May 28, 2020 at 3:15 pm

    True that. Summer means Sun and so no one should claim it! Thanks Shweta for visiting.

It was a Lagaan moment with the dark clouds and the sun playing hide n seek with whosoever was awake at that time. You caught them 🙂

    Anagha Yatin · May 28, 2020 at 3:16 pm

    Oh yes…it did not occur me so. Thanks for adding to the discussion on the pic and for visiting!

Lovely photos accompanied with a even lovelier description…. Makes me want to listen to the song and imagine your experience 🙂

    Anagha Yatin · May 29, 2020 at 7:23 am

    Do listen to it Ira. It’s a lovely song with the message of hope, especially the hope after a long gloomy winter. And it fits the bill right now for us. Thanks for visiting and sharing your view.
