Being Thankful

Due to some check up I had to close my eyes for an hour 

Suddenly I was lost 

I couldnt see 

The white washed walls 

The different people around

My phone buzzing with messages 

The blue sky out of the window 

But with time 

I could feel the breezing air from the window 

The footsteps of people hovering around

The nonstop gossip of people waiting 

The noise made by the medical instruments

I could smell the hot air of coffee

I could feel everything going around
That time I realized

That I had taken my senses for granted 

Thought it would remain forever 

But now I thank god 

For allowing me to see the green of plants 

The colours of rainbow

To let me feel the chill of ice 

To let me feel the heat of sun

To let me hear the melodic songs of birds

To let me smell the fragrance of flowers

To let me taste the sweetness of cake 

I am grateful for this 5 senses 

I am 

I truly am

Sometime back i made my way to hospital and had to close my eyes for along, and i went through the same experience of the life time…….. i could just get into the feel through this….. and yes at unusual time and place, unusual things happens which make us count the moment. Another piece of exquisite writing πŸ™‚
