The Night after the Storm

That night she slept early. I did not ask why, but then I knew that she must have been terrified by the storm. Maybe, the whistling storm must have scared her, or the ghost stories. Maybe or may not be!

I sat on the windowsill with a notebook and the pen gifted by her a year ago. I wanted to write badly. That was peace for me. What should I write? Poem or prose, I asked my heart. I knew the answer though. Poem is the way to express my emotions, but…but…that night I was not interested to pen down one, I said to myself.

A ray of hope arose inside me saying. Ah! What’s stopping me from penning down my experience with the storm?

And I wrote, “It was a Monday evening. The weather was terribly bad, and our city was listed under red zone. My colleagues and I left to home from office early, as we expected the storm to clean the city and…” all that happened in one hundred and twenty minutes in my diary.

When I finished writing the diary, all I remembered was the smile on my wife’s face – calm and serene, beautiful too. I looked at the clock; the time was half past one. I stared out the window. The weather was normal. I saw uprooted trees, thrown-away roofs and other debris, and yet it was calm. That was when I recalled a saying in Tamil, “புயலுக்கு பின்னே அமைதி” (Peace after the storm) and a non-detail lesson. I understood the reason behind that lesson after ten years. My lips curved. I turned back to see my wife. She was sleeping peacefully. Her smiling face was one thing I always connect with my Mom. Maybe, just maybe, I am lucky to have them both in my life, I thought. I kept my diary and pen back inside my cub-board.

I lay on the bed. Maybe, wherever I am, whatever I do, the night after the storm is peace. I said to myself. Peace.

  1. Good one, Sarav :) Loved it ! Something that reflects what is close to your heart :) I guess you should have given the transliteration for Puyalukku Pinne Amaidhi....( from the BAT perspective, that is ) :)

    1. Yes Sreeja. It is very close to my heart. I should have given it.. And now, I have added it :) Thank you :)

  2. the message you want to give through this post is unclear,although writing is good

    1. Cifar...I missed to link that 120 minutes post.. That's why.. I think now you can understand the message and the translation of what I wanted to say!

  3. I am little confused. :-(
    What actually happened during the storm? Or on the Night after the storm?

    1. aativas.. What happened in the storm is what you will read in the book Uff Ye Emotions 2. The night after the storm is always peace.. This is more of like a diary entry.. And the message is Peace!

  4. The calm that spreads over the night after the storm truly is peaceful to the soul. Nice post SIS :) I wish you could have translated that Tamil saying!

    1. Thank you so much Kirti. I have done that now :)

  5. Nice post as usual ... :) All the best !


Thank you for leaving your footprints! Do come back for more!
