Pleasures of the Path

Underneath the angry sky,
Pushing against the angry gales,
I venture in the wild.

I have seen a dream once,
There’s something draped in gold,
Waiting for me beyond .

In pursuit of that reverie,
I fought a war against the wild,
But the war never seemed to end!

When, finally the sun shone,
The glory beyond seemed futile,
As my heart breathed pleasures of the wild!

The pic above is of Chandra River in the Lahaul region of Himachal Pradesh. The weather turned bad and the icy gales were pushing us from the road . In spite of harsh weather and freezing temperature of -10°c or more I somehow clicked this beauty in its full glory.

I hope you guys also enjoy this.

    You’re a very good poet. Have you published any in a book yet? How long have you been writing? Thanks for sharing this post.

    Your photography is lovely. I know that driving in the winter can be scary, but sometimes so worth it to get a new view on old mountains.
