Beauty Before the Storm

For 15 minutes nothing made sense. It was so quiet! Deadly quiet! It was surreal.

As I looked out the window, what’s real was this sight in front of me — The sunset showered everything with a golden glow: Cherry flowers opened their small pinkish mouths drinking the golden rays; The neighbors’ houses soaked in golden color and became castles in the Disney land; the river off the path shined with golden ripples; the bare hill from far looked like a bold man suddenly grew full hair, a color of auburn. And yet, there was no single sound interrupting this picturesque view. Birds must have retired from singing business after an exhausting day; squirrels and rabbits were hidden and enjoying this from their own backyard; dogs were tiptoeing….

I felt little unease. Is this the beauty before the storm?
