365 Writing Prompts: Landscape

When you gaze out your window—real or figurative– do you see the forest or the trees?

I am in front of my computer, I can see what’s out there, it’s not a very optimistic view. The rain is falling and my neighbor’s tree sans the leaves is standing still with occasional breeze moving its brown tiny branches to and fro, reminding me if I go out ,I better dress warm because nature is not providing the warmth.

Then there is the dull grey sky trying its best to provide some room for the sun to show itself, for us to hope, maybe just may be the sun will take over and the clouds will be pushed out.

Then there is that sound of some crows, who probably are wondering, we thought it’s spring why do we see snow, they are reminding in their own language to nature: “Did you forget the season, it’s Spring for God’s sake we want flowers, fruits and the pretty birds, why aren’t they here.”

To which nature replies: “It’s not my fault, ask your humans, they are the ones who are destroying everything on this planet, ask them when will they stop littering, drive cars, that are not environment friendly, need I say more, do not blame me blame the humans.”

The poor crows are sad and they are saying,” Humans please co-operate, so we can have decent weather!”

  2. what a gaze outside side your window! Gazing out to window is such a wide and imaginatve term that it prompts innumerable spectacles. Always like the way how you can relate to minute things which we tend to overlook.
