~ The Chameleon ~
Moments of solitude takes one to their own special chairs or corners most loved. one such is the swing in my balcony. While bathing in the everlasting energizer--The Sun, i notice this beloved creation, chameleon sitting at a comfortable distance on the mango tree. Its an instant observation of seeing it as it is unlike commenting, so creepy it looks etc. Letting the precious moment flow unfolds the message from this "Zen Master". Usually i like to communicate with them by trying to get their attention by making sounds. Wow! this one just didnt respond to the call and just told me silently, "hey, you, cant you just shut up and just be. I am with myself and so be you". Wonderful! In that being silently with myself yet watching it revealed the inborn quality of chameleon -- changing the colour to suit the environment. Yet another message sent,"Be a Roman in Rome". Lessons on adaptability! Retaining its form(essence) yet adapting to the ever changing things all around. This post is the hug to my Beloved Zen Master, the chameleon.
