Birds of Paradise
There are times when you eagerly wait for something, you dream and prepare for its arrival and it eludes you for so long that you forget all about it, shut that piece of hope in an old iron trunk, lock it and throw the keys into the river. And bury the memory.
And out of the blue, it shows up. Making you go berserk. Knocking you out when you are least prepared. And then you realise that's the best way it could have happened to you.
Birds of Paradise - beautifully alluring and a recent favourite, I was excited when I brought a plant home about 6 months back. I would look out of the window everyday hoping to see the blossoms and finally gave up after 2 whole months. And suddenly, two weeks back, it bloomed! And how!
I know this incident doesn't really deserve this dramatic a preamble, but it triggered some memories in that direction....
PS: Guys, don't snigger, I'm tagging this post under, 'philosophy' :D
