Time Flows

Yellow lights blink red. Life comes to a standstill at familiar cross roads. The soft hum of the engine and some song playing on the stereo unhinge thoughts from where they were at rest.

Nothing makes sense. I am a seeker. The lights turn green. I drive my thoughts.

Courtesy:The HINDU Raj? (In mild annoyance) Yes Princess? Its a Sunday baby. Why do you have to answer all the calls on your phone? This is my personal phone babe. I don't have too many people calling on this one. Agreed. But this is the third time you are walking out of the room with your phone. It annoys me. I am sorry Princess. But I will have to take all the calls.  Raj..%#$@@**.(Major Annoyance) ---Silence----- Princess? What?? Do you remember Anju?  That girl who went for a divorce? Yes What about her?
