The Knock of the Rainbow Vessel
It was a curious dream. I was sleeping in my penthouse. In my deep sleep I heard a gentle knock at my room’s window. I saw a beaming light gleaming in through window panes.
‘Who is that?’ I bubbled.
‘It’s me, ‘The Rainbow Vessel’, please let me in’.
‘You are too big to enter through this window’ I shot back. I was in no mood to disturb my sleep.
‘Don’t worry I have a supple structure. I will squeeze down to fit in.'
Grudgingly and without moving from my cosy bed I made an ajar in the window. The rainbow vessel sailed inside the room like Water.
The room glared up with beaming light filled with rainbow shades. Now I can’t remain on my bed. In excitement and curiosity I jumped out. The vessel was floating in my room like a merry-go-around.
‘Wouldn’t you offer me a place to anchor?’ I heard a little whisper.
‘Oh Yes, why not?’
By now I became more generous and hospitable. I gently anchored the vessel to my Decorated Chair near the window.
Days kept moving and slowly I developed an eternal bond for the ‘Rainbow Vessel’. I will not let it go. I moved it to a quiet place in my penthouse. Beauty lies in the calmness of the shades. I am giving them a calm and quite environment. I sit with them, play with them, mix my shades with Rainbow shades and paint my dreams.
Few days back I observed a strange phenomenon. The 'Green' in the rainbow slowly took the shape of a leaf and finally turned into a 'Caterpillar'. The scene was so exciting it awaken the 'child' inside me to paint the picture of my GrandPa’s Garden.
My penthouse is now converted into a laboratory. Every day different shades mix, mate and breed here. My room is full of colourful stories, memoires and beautiful portraits.
'Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success'
I dedicate this post to Ali Anani whose 'Rainbow Vessel' loaded with knowledge, wisdom and intellect anchors at different ports at the same time.
