There goes the road… winding downhill…
Dusty…’tis a path that’s neverending…
Into the horizon… into the mist.. it melted
Like a mindless wanderer, meandering…
Aligning to the night stars bright…
Into the vastness it traversed..silently
Uncared, yet so pivotal to wordly existence…
It slithered past the eyes… stealthily
Into the gray it went peacefully…
Turning at the umpteen bends…cautious
As if a new thrill seems to await…
Alas there’s none… life’s so monotonous…
Distant lands beckon with eager…
Drifting… it strays towards colorful dreams…
Appalled…it stops, aghast at phony feelings…
Retraces… it heads toward unpretented realms…
Etching past thorny bushes… unhurt
Into the haunted wilderness it wanders…
Aspiring for a destiny… still undefined…
Like a nomad into the oblivion… it meanders.
Remember our walk during moonlit days,
By the side of the whispering river,
It’s crystal light on your face,
As our fingers did entwine and quiver.
Absorbed in your dreamy gaze,
I’d uttered words like a toddler,
Brushing past the grassy maze,
Into the white mist did we wander.
Timeless moments of sweet chatter,
Furthered the meet of our minds,
Leading to an idealistic banter,
Of politics and inane guidelines.
Remember how under the starlit skies,
We sauntered like the passive wanderer,
Following the trail of the fireflies,
Humming tunes with theatrical fervour.
Lost in the world of our dreams,
We heard none but our hearts beat,
Your warm caress was my realm
Our eyes locked in an amorous meet.
The blessed sun of spring
Bloomed with mellow beauty
Evoking innocent feeling
Of love, peace and serenity.
As darkness bids fond adieu
To morning’s golden haze
Blue birds twittered notes a few
To usher this pristine phase.
Gentle breeze hugged the trees
And whispered secrets of life
As flowers in a bid to appease
Stood to greet the merry wife.
Sunken eyes that opened wide
Gazed with a dreamy guise
Unnerved of the wordly chide
Lost in a lover’s paradise.
The morning has called it a day,
Tired, it slips into deep slumber,
Wrapped in blankets of orange and grey,
It drowns in heavenly wonder.
Lullaby of the returning swallows,
Lulls the sea to mellow serenity,
As the night stealthily follows,
On a path of shinning placidity
Sordid moments of the bygone day,
Drown deep like the setting sun
As farmers with their golden hay,
Slip in a moment of jig and fun.
The aroma of the evening breeze,
Intoxicating, it steals my solace,
As I sway with the colossal trees,
My eyes fancying your blessed face.
Beyond the mystical horizon,
With a trail of our innocent love,
We meandered, singing in unison,
Dreaming of the heavens above.
A million hopes I envisage,
A thousand dreams I sketch,
Boundless and limitless in my heart
Spontaneous optimisms I etch.
Across the briny blue ocean,
I sail at will, no charts to guide,
To lands that pirates don’t dare,
Sails and squalls, I no longer abide.
Unchained melody of my heart,
I sing with absolute informality,
Neither notes, nor timbres to follow,
Carefree of any crude mockery.
Lost in my lover’s sweet caress
I free my restrained passions
Love rhythms creating pure music,
Liberating my flimsy moral conscience.
Like the breeze wafting with ease,
I float across without strife,
As free as the spirits of Eden,
Away from the circle of life.
