Sitting by the window, she looked out and somewhere, look beyond. Life has been fair to her in more ways than one. She has been blessed with a good health, family in the prime of her profession yet a deep longing throbbed in her heart. An unquenchable thirst.....
The distant sound of a train echoed and her back from her reverie..
Like the two parallel tracks,they both were together Yet distant..... Never to meet. But today it felt different.. State of unrest get a sweet anticipation.. Her thoughts went racing back to the time they had met. There was an instant connection and both felt the intensity of it, so much that it was overwhelming.

After the niceties, there was not much to say, to hear, to narrate. It was more of being with in the moment. They had drifted apart and not heard from each other for several years.

Then they parted with no hope given to meet again.
She went back to the window and looked outside and deep within. The longing was gone and a smile penetrating her soul came upon her face ...Yes the chores need to be taken care of.Lunch to be made and life has to go on. Somewhere in distance the train rushed by echoes of its sound fading away.....
