Travelling in many ways, is enlightening,
It opens up Pandora box of information if thou wants taking,
Which are obtained on the way aplenty,
A new meet with different environs,
In different natural settings,
Just opposites are experienced,
Giving us bitter and sweet tastes.
Started journey in the early morn,
With stars brightly shining on the heaven above,
Telling loud and clear,
That their being is just of few minutes,
The rays of the sun will lull these to sleep,
For the day, till onset of darkness again, is ordained.
There is chanting of hymn in temples,
Tingling of bells in the churches,
Azans in the Idgaghs,
Spreading the fragrance all around,
Making the daybreak more sacred,
Journey started with a positive note.
Got a seat near the window large,
Exterior sight vibrantly edifying,
The river’s serene flow is mesmerizing,
The silvery current of light falling on its current,
Inviting all, for a nature’s spectacle.
Then Sun’s soothing morning rays falling,
On the green paddy fields all around,
Air is instilled with aroma,
Without a doubt, dreamy one.
Birds coming out of their perches,
Merrily chirping their melodies.
A garden with mangoes trees laden,
With yellow juicy fruit,
Alluringly inviting for a bite.
Thence fields with parchedness all around,
As if nature has cast its dry spell,
With no shower for a long time,
Trees bereft of leaves,
Upsetting humans, animals and bird alike,
Looking heavenwards for some drops of water.
Music of marriage party,
With the people dancing to the tune,
An air of happiness all around.
A pal bearing four people,
With a music but out of sorts,
People wailing for their kin lost,
Bidding farewell to a departed soul,
For a journey to the last post.
For a person who wants to see,
A journey can present different things,
Differently, if thou want to experience,
Bitter, sour and sweeter could it be,
My earnest prayer to my Lord,
Make everybody’s journey of life a better one,
So that there is no tears and life a bearable one,
One which has solutions for every pestering problem,
Bestow, Oh Lord, solution to every problem,
And make everybody’s journey of life a peaceful one.
