SILENT WIND
30 August 2010, it was the day which
 
was suppose to be special. It was the
 
exactly 15 years ago when I came into
 
this realm. But for me it was as normal
 
as bone piercing cold in winter and
 
black clouds in rainy season. That day
 
was suppose to bring happiness with it
 
but in my life it brought emptiness.
 
Emptiness cropped when my father left
 
me to continue his journey into other
 
heavenly realms in this universe.
 
 
 
Every birthday my father used to be
 
the first one to wish me until 14 years
 
but that day he was not there. And
 
without him nothing can be special so
 
it was supposedly a normal day for me.
 
But when I looked up to the sky, it felt
 
special. The sun was shining the
 
brightest, showering all its mirth and
 
its light caressing. And the birds were
 
chirping like never before. Even the
 
trees were trying to say something that
 
is beyond the grasp of human mind.
 
 
 
As I was drowned deep in my thoughts,
 
attempting to understand the
 
mysterious message that all natural
 
elements were trying to convey.
 
Suddenly, a gush of cold wind struck
 
me pulling me out of my thoughts. I
 
looked around taking in the
 
surroundings I’m standing in but
 
everything was silent, still like
 
someone has pressed the “pause” button
 
making everything motionless, in that
 
moment trapping everything and
 
everyone.
 
 
 
Then suddenly once again a wave of
 
cold sharp wind gushed past me giving
 
me goose bumps. I felt the same feeling
 
as before, a divine feeling, yet so
 
homely and caring. It was familiar. A
 
warm feeling I used to get when my
 
father was near me. It was the long lost
 
feeling I forgot a long while ago but
 
this wind current reminded me of it.
 
What seemed like ages trapped it
 
seconds, left me a feeling to cherish
 
lifelong. I don’t know where that wind
 
current came from but I’m sure it
 
carried the wishes of some loved one to
 
me. I fathomed this day to be a normal
 
one but just few divine seconds made it
 
so special a day to remember.
