Standing on a bridge over the River Rhine.

Standing on the bridge beneath which flows the river Rhine, he saw the river go by. Ducks were waddling nearby the banks of the river. Few of them even crossed the river by going across from one end to the other. The wind was at its delightful best and it was flowing with a breeze that would simply give your hairdo a touch and at the most give it a taste of its power.

Rhine being one of the legendary rivers of Germany, is a destiny and destination in itself. Many, many and many people go there and enjoy it when it is at its peak.

But, if you ever visit the river at early morning when its monsoon, you will find that the whole atmosphere is calm and quiet. You will feel that only the rain drops on the Rhine River and the river itself and only you exist.

On one such early and fine and cloudy morning, he went for a walk nearby the Rhine. After finishing the short stroll, he went and stood on the bridge over the river. From there he saw a boat which was white in colour, sailing across the Rhine.

The boat seemed to be enjoying the journey, as it was moving more slowly than a snail. Near the banks of the river, many birds could be seen, especially white coloured birds. The ducks were waddling up and down the river and the cuckoos were singing there morning lullaby. Eating a hotdog and drinking coffee, he went back home saying goodbye to the river for the day. The river was yet to rise, as it was still sleeping and the morning was still left to be explored. Before the day could actually start he went back to his home quickly as the morning chill was rising. The moment he reached home, the rain started pattering on his windows and the river Rhine was on its rise again. Within minutes, the windows became all misty and the outside weather was too foggy to see anything clearly. Only the river could be seen. If only the river could get an umbrella then it too could have slept a little bit more.

Sometimes waking up early in the morning can be really painful. On the other hand wrapping yourself up in a warm and cozy blanket and sleeping for extra two hours gives you enough energy and strength to go out of the warmth of your house and work monotonously in your office or business activities.

The next morning he again went for walk on the bridge over the river Rhine and…Rhine1.png……..the journey continues.
