Saffron skies


For the sleepless, the morning comes with a sigh of relief. At last, the night is over!

The day with its noisy rhythms, its intrusive loud voice takes you by the hand and strings you along, not even asking you for your permission and sometimes not even giving you time to take a breather, an enthusiastic partner at a dance. Such days are a relief.

There is a masculinity, to day and the night, like a woman, if she will, can turn her lullaby calmness to a steely silence and her nurturing gentleness into rough abandon.

The first cup of tea, the smell of it….the freshness in the air….the pink clusters of flowers along the wall…a clear sky, a clear road ahead and a gentle breeze….hmmm….good morning!


stirred by the sun. saffron lifts the blues. come on now baby. everything you need is here. sing it baby, sing it one time for me.... Yeeeeahhh!!

i am a lazy creature so i like nights :yaun:
night dosent abandon it is just that we are so connected to others that the day abandons us ,night is with us when the whole world abandons us . during day we are not ourselves sometimes but at night we are definately ourselves...

Reminds me of the Don Mclean number " I can feel the tired tingling of a sleepless night / Creep through my fingers...." very nice, transports one to your world...of mornings!

Pecos blue- thank you so much for that! ...but what site revamp, i have just added a few blogs, that's all.

Zingtrail- am happy that you should enjoy it so and your wishes are always welcome. :)

m.shahin- i'm always so very happy if i can provide calm...am so happy it did that for you, thank you! the word maths freezes my brain. :)

Russell- and am also glad you took that break, thank you soooo much for your warm praise! means much to me.

Hazel dream- i was talking about the masculine and feminine traits in a specific situation. the question is, i havent yet found him.

Pecos Blue- try taking something which he enjoys, if sports and gizmos are his things, then you could try there. model planes, skate boards, snazzy sneakers, multimedia games, music cd's, etc. or a cool jacket should be nice for the winters. All the best!!! :)

just came across your site... and enjoyed reading everything... but its all tinged with just this hint of sadness... or am i reading too much into it? either way, to use a cliche... our sweetest songs are those that tell our saddest thoughts....

gulnaz said...

the mad momma- i'm so glad you enjoyed this space. :)
sadness is part of life, sometimes by acknowldgeing it you let it go.

Cocaine Jesus said...

i think that life is equal parts sadness and equal parts joy. without one we don't know the other or appreciate joy for knowing sadness.

love your writing honey.

gulnaz said...

CJ- thank you!!!!!!!!!!! Hugs!!!!
and yes they together make the song of life.
