GoodBye Blue Sky

It all started with the slight drizzle in the morning at around 4, couldn’t help my self to walk out and see the downpour. Though it did not last long but nonetheless there was some cooling effect. Sat on the terrace waiting for the sunrise. And when the sun came out the clouds were golden , exceptionally golden and the white birds seemed to radiate.

Today is one of the clearest sky in Chennai, a clear blue sky. Reminds me of PINK FLOYD’s song Good Bye Blue Sky. Though the context when the song was written was different but the philosophy turns out to be the same. Here goes the lyrics of the beautiful song

“Look mummy, there’s an aeroplane up in the sky”

Oooooooo ooo ooo ooo ooooh(x 2)
Did-did-did-did-you see the frightened ones?
Did-did-did-did-you hear the falling bombs?
Did-did-did-did-you ever wonder why we had to run for shelter
When the promise of a brave new world
Unfurled beneath a clear blue sky?

Oooooooo ooo ooo ooo ooooh (x 2)
Did-did-did-did-you see the frightened ones?
Did-did-did-did-you hear the falling bombs?
The flames are all long gone, but the pain lingers on.

Goodbye, blue sky
Goodbye, blue sky.
Goodbye.(x 2)

“The 11:15 from Newcastle is now approaching”
“The 11:18 arrival….”

The scene is of world war 2 . Ideally on a clear day everything seems so wonderful and one wants to sit out and enjoy. But the boy here hears the sound of plane up in the blue sky which would drop bombs and so people run for shelter.

The scene here in Chennai is that it is too hot and one has to run for shelter.
