I have vivid memories of that moment. I had just read my 5th appreciation email from the top management of my unit. It was for a presentation delivered by me during an important tour, and the accolades were primarily due to the fact that I was roped in for something that critical at the eleventh hour and managed it successfully.
It is micro fiction time again – this one is on the theme “Time”. This idea came to my mind at 3:00 AM in the night while putting my toddler back to sleep. 🙂
I have often heard people say that prostitution or porn should be made legal because it is a personal choice on both sides. But, the fact is that in our country, in most cases it is not a “choice” on both sides.

Sitting at the seashore, basking in our moment,
My eyes wander to an effervescent adolescent.
In a trice, my mind starts brimming with thoughts of your future,

I never thought I would ever be so restless,
I think of the twinkle in your eyes and your acts so kind;
Life gains a new meaning each second,
‘Coz you are always on my mind.
The world before you came,
Seemed aloof and strange;
But your thoughtful words made me realize,
That things can miraculously change.
