The clouds running to escape before the sunsets. The orange ball of fire was going away with a smiling face, taking the light with itself and spreading the darkness. I, sitting at the top of the house's terrace saw a line of ants started creating which were going towards infinity. They seemed happy, going tic tak this way and tic tak that way but a proper straight line. Not only ants, but birds too also seemed free of exhaustion, flying, and playing while returning home. COVID 19 brought their freedom back, it brought nature's life back. Now, the trees were much greener than ever, the sky was bluer. The color of the environment seemed to change. The air was lighter. The river flowing downside my house was much more clear and clean, but I wasn't able to see the surface of the river, it used to be narrow but today it seemed deep. I went to the riverside, an urge to feel the water-born inside me. I went swimming inside the river, and to my disbelief, the river which I thought was so narrow, was so much with life. I didn't know if I was swimming but the river was surely taking me deep. I was forgetting the surface, the green algae, and the playful fishes everywhere, there was new earth inside. Earth is where nature lives. We were not living, we were constantly fighting for Life but there was no need. What life would be good if not given by nature, what pleasure would that bring?
Dolphins are the most intelligent creature but still the happiest of them. Humans are counted to be intelligent but we never are happy with what we have. I felt the urge to become one of the fish, though their life is short but truly amazing, just have to flow with water. I stopped breathing, i was floating downwards, my grip on my body was long gone, but like real friends, fishes were playing around me to keep me company till my life stays. They took my shape covering my whole body. By little fur fur of their heartbeats, my body was taking its breathes. I closed my eyes, while my soul was playing with them. I forgot everything that happened on earth, deep down it was just me and my fishes.
I thought I had united with my soul deep down in the river but suddenly, something hurt me, and it did again and again. Finally, I thought, I was in the deepest surface of the ocean until I opened my eyes, the sun was rising again in its smiling face. The clouds traveling back, the birds coming back, I was back on the surface of the earth.
Deep inside, the river too loved me. She kept me safe but I was happy inside the new earth.
