Flash Fiction: The Woman on The Mountain Top~My Response To billybuc's Challenge!
My Response To Billybuc 's challenge!
This hub is in response to " A writing challenge: The woman on mountaintop", the link to which is here.
I have read some of the responses to this challenge and I must admit they are all awesome.
Billybuc is an inspiration to everyone here and a master of his trade.
Therefore this is my sincere request to him, to consider this just as a writing exercise, just a little effort from my side.
The picture in your hub is so beautiful and says so much. The proof can be seen in the hubs written by great writers here on HubPages, all interpreting it in their own beautiful way and all stories so wonderful, unique and creative.
Hope you like my interpretation too. Thanks!
Nature has music, if you are able to hear -- The Shimla Affair!

Anita woke up to the sound of birds chirping and the gentle morning Sunshine reflecting on her face, from outside the large French windows of her elegant suite in the lavish hotel.
It took her sometime to figure out where she was, as she looked around in the tastefully decorated room.
And her eyes stopped at the bed beside her.
There she was--- married now and up there in the beautiful Hill station, Shimla for her honeymoon!
She was ecstatic for few moments, leisurely looking around the room at the belongings, that her husband had left behind, while leaving hurriedly for his morning jogging session.
She looked out of the window at the inviting weather, the fragrant wind, the tall green trees and the mountain top!
♥ How magical does the mountain look;
♥ Mighty yet Serene;
♥ Why I didn't look at it so lingeringly before;;
♥ How wonderful is this morning;
♥ Vivacious yet calm;
♥ Why I didn't feel the same before.
The Beauty Of Nature: Sometimes you just want to do 'NOTHING.'!
There are times in our lives, when you just want to do 'Nothing.'
Anita was perhaps in that state of mind and she just wanted to enjoy 'this' moment of her life.
But was she able to do so!
The Nature's peace and the Sunshine flowing across the 'Deodar' trees and the snow clad mountain tops were so inviting that she couldn't resist the call.
♥ The Nature's freshness, flowing into her face;
♥ Sunshine flowing through the 'Deodar' trees;
♥ Angels calling out aloud from the mountain top;
♥ Come! Shed all your stress away and join us!
♥ How much solace; how so satisfying;
♥ How necessary it is to spend sometimes in the wild;
She had to go there, out in the open.
And there she was--standing there, barefooted, in the midst of Nature. Her feet gently wet by the dew kissed green grass, were looking so soft and supple. There was a special, sweet fragrance all around, she had never sensed before.
She stood there staring endlessly at the mighty mountain------the symbol of positivism and strength.
And somehow to her amazement, it was looking back at her dew soft, innocent face!
Perhaps she was trying to treasure those beautiful moments in her memory.
In the real World, there are moments, when you need motivation and inspiration and an iron will to meet mountain like challenges of life.
''Hey Anita! Enjoying the beautiful Nature."
She turned around to follow the voice calling her name.
Now the ecstasy doubled as her husband stood there, looking lovingly at her sublime and enthusiastic face!
Keep close to Nature's heart... and break clear away, once in a while, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.
Over every mountain there is a path, although it may not be seen from the valley.
What is the significance of mountain to you?
Hope you like it!
This is just a small piece, written spontaneously, in response to the lovely picture in billybuc's hub, the link to which is given above.
Many great writers and poets have written beautiful hubs in response to this, each one unique and creative and just wonderful.
My appreciation to all of them and thanks to billybuc for being an inspiration.
Hope you like it!
