One ship sails East, and another west
The sky was azure.Flawless. Complimented and graced with pristine chunks of clouds spread as far as the sight went. The air was light, cool and fresh. A perfect morning she thought. A beautiful day, nature at its best with the right amount of coolness in the wind and the right amount of sunshine in the sky.
The tall trees stood in groups around the campus. All towering around her as she took fast paced steps through them. she wondered what the sinless trees of nature must be whispering to each other while they swayed to the breeze at the top of the branches. They were green, unusually green and alive today. Like they look after a monsoon shower, washed and bathed with drops of nature from above the heavens. What took place outside in the land of the man was in stark contrast to what God's sinless nature displayed. Ironic she thought -- a mesmerizing weather to compliment the actions of man. Aesthetic beauty against the ugliness of the forbidden.
Nothing bothered her today. She wanted to follow the rhythm of nature. The peaceful aura it displayed while the chaos filled the air outside. Somehow that didn't plague the rest. She continued walking, sometimes stepping into the tiny puddles of water gathered from watering the lawns, sometimes stepping on the fallen leaves. They weren't autumn crisp. Quietly they crushed under her feet. She listened to the sound of the mime crushing of the leaves as the sirens of ambulances sped through the roads...
Today in Lahore....life continued as usual, with God's nature unusually at peace, as if He had given up on Adam's children..
