Together is wonderful place to be‘ is what, I thought, that this lone, soft and light like a feather, whiter than white, cloud is whispering in the ears of the under-construction tower.

Maybe its wiping the sweat from the forehead of the tower that is standing tall amidst the blazing heat of summer.

Maybe it has got some message from its companions (workers right now as its still under construction) who have returned to their homes owing to lockdown. Something on the lines of the lone wandering cloud carrying the message in the “Meghadoot”, a lyric poem by Kavi Kalidasa!

Does it also not appear a figurative illustration of the health care worker attending to the COVID19 patient in the isolation ward…I wonder.

All these thoughts rained in my mind as I stood in the queue, watching the lone cotton-like-cloud travelling across the northern skies, around midday, one one of these days, for my turn in the line for vegetables. With lockdown and an unfortunate death in our society at the hands of COVID19, we have started living life with new norms. One of it is to stand in queue for the vegetables as and when the vegetable vendor visits our gated society!

What thought crossed your mind when you saw this picture, do let me know.

Until we meet next, stay safe and stay healthy.

Such a beautiful piece from the picture. Indeed, queues make for some interesting thoughts during the wait.

Seems like a contrast – a bit of greenery and a piece of nature in between a concrete Jungle!

    Agree with you and appreciate your keen observation Shweta!

Thanks for sharing this thought-provoking picture and for joining us for our weekly blog hop, Anagha! Enjoyed your ponderings and can tell it must be a hot day and think the cloud must be so welcome for all those below, on the ground!
Those queues are the new normal everywhere nowadays and we better get used to them! Right?
Stay safe, dear Anagha and lets pray that this too shall pass soon!
Best wishes,
Esha

    Amen. This too shall pass.
    Thanks Esha for visiting.

The thoughts that invade our minds at the sight of a lone cloud! This is a beautiful piece, Anagha. I’m sorry to hear about the death in your area. Let’s hope that things will go back to normal some day, sooner the better and we wouldn’t have to stand in queue maintaining social distancing to buy vegetables.

Take care and stay safe, Anagha.

The cloud appears as a burst of hope for me. After all its a pure fluffy white one, amidst the backdrop of the blue sky.

Thanks for linking up with us on #WW. Was fun to be back here. Its been a while.

Sorry to hear of the death in your building society. Things seem to be getting scarier. We need to cling to every little hopeful thing we can – like that cloud you’ve captured. Stay safe!

    Anagha Yatin · May 15, 2020 at 9:17 am

    Hope is the only balm of life right now, as rightly mentioned by you Corinne. Thanks for visiting.

The half constructed buildings also seem to be waiting for the ordeal to get over… In hope that Tomm will come a day when they will no more be bound by those wooden poles tied up all around… Free… And complete… Reaching out to the sky….just like us!!

    Anagha Yatin · May 15, 2020 at 8:52 am

    Wow, that’s a wonderful positive thought Ira. Coming from you, it does seem to be the real thought the building must be having these days! Thanks for visiting and sharing your thought.

The cloud whispered, “You are not alone”.

Our boats maybe different but we all are in the same storm. We all shall sail through it stronger than before. So keeping the flame of hope burning.

I hope things are better now in your society. I have not stepped out since day 1 of lockdown (quite unlike me) but its fine as the situation demands. Its better to be safe then sorry.

Have a safe and joyous weekend Anagha!

    Anagha Yatin · May 15, 2020 at 12:29 pm

    That’s a very empowering message!
    Things are improving for better at our end. Thanks for the concern and wishes!
    Happy to welcome you on my blog and thank you for sharing your thoughts.

What struck me was that incomplete building. Hopefully now there will be workers around to complete it.
Togetherness is what need now.

I love how you followed a train of thoughts while following the clouds. We sometimes look inwards as we look out!

A city stopped in its tracks is what the photo seems to be saying to me.
Nice post. Condolences to the family of the deceased.
