About Her

My photo
India
Little Moments Of Bliss is a silhouette of a feeling that resides in my heart. A software engineer by degree, a writer at heart, and a teacher by profession, I'm all that I never thought I would be. Pretty pictures,a poem that blatantly refuses to rhyme, a text from a deranged friend, a sudden gesture of love, its these little things in life, that matter and sprinkle bliss. Grace the couch and share a cuppa!

Life is a Dance [55Fiction #4]



They said 'Dance isn't your cup of tea'.
I retorted 'Life is a dance and I will live it gracefully'.

The eager reporter left and she waltzed around the room with her last performance, glimpses of her first ran inside her head.
The woman in the mirror was proud of her and nothing else mattered.

  7. I was reminded of Dirty Dancing 2: Havana Nights, when he picks up another girl for dancing instead of her, and tells her that "he didn't want to waste the music".
    I kind of think every one can dance...And dance beautifully...Its just how you look at it. :)

    1. You got me. 55F takes more mind and thought than any other genre.
      And your blog isn't half dead. Its on a sabbatical :D And what kind of a blogger won't understand that ;)

  22. When we are bent on following our dreams, there will always be people who would try their best to deter us from it. It is up to us to move forward with passion and follow our heart, unmindful of what the world says.

    The Picture here deserves a special mention. Complements your post really well :-)
