For Every Elsa Needs a Knight with a Chariot

It was a beautiful morning, the red winged black bird was busy picking the berries of the pear tree and the last remnant of ice was falling in chunks making a tip tap tip tap tip tap sound as it melted the long winter away……spring, it seemed was around the corner.

And then we were all lulled to sleep only to be woken by a text message…Schools Closed..Snow Day. The governor declared a state of emergency and we were all home bound.

But not me.  I have a Knight who always whisks me away to the winter wonderland whenever Elsa puts her charm on.

Despite Elsas’ frozen land, we managed to explore the beauty of our town in monotone.

And it seemed when we tried to stay behind the Laxman Rekha, there were those luring us to cross boundaries prohibited!

Teachings of Ramayana to the rescue…even as they went into the woods, my Knight reminded me not to follow them

 

The winter wonderland was everywhere! (best viewed full screen and then forgotten )

Hope….is a thing with wings …that flutters in the soul!

“Hope” is the thing with feathers –
That perches in the soul –
And sings the tune without the words –

And never stops – at all –

And sweetest – in the Gale – is heard –
And sore must be the storm –
That could abash the little Bird
That kept so many warm –

I’ve heard it in the chillest land –
And on the strangest Sea –
Yet – never – in Extremity,
It asked a crumb – of me. – Emily Dickinson (and my friend Shalini for revisiting this today!)

But so was the promise of summer and warmer days to come (best viewed  and remembered full screen :))
