The Little Feather

It was my usual peaceful dawn. I was sitting in the balcony, sipping lime and honey in hot water and looking at the sky. The cloud formation usually gives me a good clue to how the dawn and sunrise is going to be! Early mornings are so divine. The best time of the day for me. Still. Quiet. Peaceful.

All of sudden a small white and grey feather came in my vision. It floated straight for a while and then it started to move up. Smooth, peaceful flight though there was hardly any wind. It was such a peaceful sight, watching the little feather in its flight.

Was it alive or was it dead? Was it cut off from life or was it flying to new life? Was it lost? Was it happy? Was it sad? Was it lonely? Was it at peace? I don’t know. But it left me in pure bliss.

  1. Wow 🀩
    You know Deb pipal tree leaves swaying in the breeze look like shining jewels to me. I love the feeling.

    Thank you so much

  2. I think I can relate to your feelings here Ashokji.

    I experienced something similar once when i was walking in the early hours on one spring morning in my native town. I sat below a peepal tree, and the gentle wind was creating ripples on the leaves while the early morning sun was shining through the leaves. I don’t think any word can express the bliss I felt just be looking at those leaves, with the sunrays twinkling like gems and feeling the caress of the wind that morning! Whenever i feel disturbed I sometimes imagine that morning and it always helps me to calm down.

  3. Thank you so much Zina. I have been lucky these days … in fact God has always been very kind to me πŸ™

  4. Many believe that a feather, floating near us, is a sign from a loved one no longer “here” with us. I like to believe that’s true. Beautiful prose and thoughts. ❀

  5. Thank you so much my friend. I know you too like the small details of life πŸ˜ŠπŸ’–

    Small is beautiful

  6. It’s a beautiful feeling to see a feather floating in air… not everyone as the eye to ponder over such little things. It is these little things that bring about happiness in our lives if we truly seek it.
    …And sunrises and sunsets are amazing gifts of nature, filled with peace, calmness and serenity.

  7. This is so sweet Cindy. Incidentally today morning too was blissful and I could watch another floating feather and join its flight πŸ’–πŸ€—

    Thank you so much πŸ’–πŸ€—

  8. It was without a doubt a feather that made it’s way to your heart…. take flight in the way you do best and enjoy the ride Ashok❣️

  9. Our thoughts further branch when the base of your thought is something to worth ponder upon. So the base was your beautiful creative thought. πŸ€—πŸ˜ŠπŸ’–πŸ’

  10. Wow. This is such an amazing thought Samreen – we shouldn’t wait for that push to float us, we ourselves should be our wind, to dream and to fly.

    Thank you so much πŸ’–πŸ€—

  11. Little things in our life have got so many meanings and lessons, it’s upto us how we notice them. This utterly beautiful imagery you created of this feather is so enthralling and I too am curious to know at what point in its life that feather would be.. May be it was all alive, dancing with joy, happiness for some reason as there was no wind. In our life too, we shouldn’t wait for that push to float us, we ourselves should be our wind, to dream and to fly. πŸ’–πŸ€—πŸ’–

  12. Awwwww you’re most welcome, it’s always a pleasure reading your divine masterpieces! I feel the same about you, my lovely Ashok! You’re a rainbow of light to me and many πŸ€—πŸŒˆπŸ–€

I always look forward to your posts, dear friend!!! Your words inspire and stay with me forever!!! There is such deep peace and bright energy in your writing, always! Keep shining βœ¨πŸ€—πŸ–€

  18. This captures so eloquently the BEAUTY in the simple things. Have you seen the movie β€œforest gump”? I’ve seen it a gazillion times πŸ˜€πŸ˜‚ β€” at the very end, the floating feather (which also started the movie) accompanied by the dreamlike music is my fav part. Your piece reminded me of that. Thanks Ashok!

  19. What a beautiful blissful image – I can just imagine the feather floating against the glowing morning sky. I love reading your posts – they are pure happiness in just a few words everytime that I read them. πŸ™‚

  20. β€œWas it alive or was it dead? Was it cut off from life or was it flying to new life? Was it lost? Was it happy? Was it sad? Was it lonely? Was it at peace? I don’t know. But it left me in pure bliss.”
    Just reading these lines feels so blissful, such a pure feeling πŸ€—πŸ’“

  21. A lovely piece. Your moment of stillness and peace come through beautifully. It’s a gift to be able to watch a feather dance on a wind current. I believe feathers are signs from our guides and angels, letting us know of their presence. Uplifting post, wonderfully written πŸ’•πŸ™Œβ­οΈπŸ’•

  22. Thank you so much, Lavina for your and appreciation, it truly means a lot πŸ’–
    How we couldn’t visualise the beauty in this beautiful narration, when it’s donned in beauty only πŸ’–πŸ˜
    Stay loved, stay blessed πŸ’–πŸ€—πŸ’–

  23. You’re truly blessed my dear friend.. To narrate with such beauty that so many of us actually visualise what You’ve seen. Today there’s no picture and still I could see the πŸͺΆ

  24. This is sooooo awesome princess πŸ’–πŸ€—

    Beautiful poem and beautiful thoughts

    Thank you so much πŸ€—πŸ’–

  25. The little feather
    Left place for a new beginning,
    Is floating in freedom
    The freedom of peace
    Of joy
    Of love
    Is flying to share its treasure
    With you
    With me
    With a naughty kitty
    With a thick dairy,
    Filled with words
    The little feather
    Share big lessons
    Of unconditional service
    To creatures of this vast universe
    The little feather
    White and grey πŸ’–

  26. Wow 😍
    That might have been a treat to the eyes! Such purity and positivity..

    Thanks for narrating it in such a lovely way to us sir
