A warm feeling

A warm feeling

Stop being a baby! Just do it!

Gingerly, she dipped one toe in. The shiver it sent up her spine almost made her step back. But she took a deep breath and plunged into the shimmering waters of the cold pool, as it danced in the  morning rays of the smiling sun.

As she came up for  air, the lone swimmer noticed an unexpected visitor at the water’s edge. One rare in the city.

Unblinkingly, the plump sparrow watched her as she completed two laps. With a chirp, it took off, leaving  behind a sense of warmth in its wake.

  1. Thanks Psych! Sigh, yes.. it is a sign of increasing pollution. Butterflies and sparrows populate pollution-free zones and sadly, India is not getting any better on that front.

  2. A very creative way to combine the two prompts. Very nice. And that picture is so good..the blue colour is so pleasing. Thankfully, where I live we still see a lot of butterflies and some in my garden too 🙂
