Sundown April

Great God I’m back. 22 days in the ‘wild’. Minimum internet, maximum satellite, I was getting too comfortable. Family and friends, well more family than friends. 400 kilometers, hour after hour, mountains and towns. Sundown, around 18 of them, the rest was not seen because of rain. Bloggers milestone, maybe the future is here, a global village. And April, not the girl, not the town somewhere, the month that will forever remain in memory. Maybe not the best, or the worst, but somehow strange. Hope to get it right this time. This is our first 100 word composition. An Experiment.

- Gp 2005 - 24/04/2005

* Another experiment in Human Universe called the 100 REALITIES. The above passage has exactly one hundred words. (according to the Microsoft Office word count). I don’t know if it has been done before, but we will be using this to express our daily journeys, achievements, sadness and joy. In short, a composition or a short essay of our life and thoughts. Let see what the future holds. Godspeed.

First Contact, Remixed

On the last Thursday of the year, about half past 10 local time, they landed in the garden of the White House. The security never knew what hit them, in no time all the men in blue and black and whatever colour they’re in were rolling on the ground laughing. Apparently the aliens hit them with laughing gas. Good, now we know they have some sense of humour and wont bomb us…hemmm…senseless. Another half an hour went past, the president was hiding under his table, the secret service nowhere in sight. Thinking of the worst, he reached for his cell phone and dialled 911 with his trembling fingers. So much for him, the aliens UFO, which funnily enough is shaped like a saucer, lighted up like a Las Vegas casino, sans neon signboard. A door opened up and from it rolled down a weird looking robot with a huge plasma screen TV for its head. Words fail to describe alien technology, literally, so I’m using earth analogy. Oh, and by the way, I am the dude, who saw it all.

The president peering from …

...you

for, its during the rainy seasons
when we sit admiring
the cool breeze and wandering droplets
we realize we are admiring the beauty of loneliness
from afar, of you and me
