Taste of Ecstasy!!
In smoky foggy Amboli*
Rain God had his Monopoly
Why would you distrust me?
I am a stranger to hyperbole!!
The blazing sun went on a ride
Behind the clouds did he hide?
Couldn’t glimpse him through the day…
Couldn’t even find a glittering ray
Never was the sky so beneath
Felt the wind with staggering teeth
Soaring with my feet on the ground
With lovely pals around
And the wayward nature
Determined to make me wetter
Nowhere so cool
Never so better
How can I disregard those little monkeys?
Staring at us zooming in
Ancestral inheritance came alive
I was no more a human but their cousin
They were saner than us and wiser than we
Watching the things silently
But the so-called thinkers losing sanity
Jumping at will impatiently
With the unclear greenery and invisible valley
Down the road we performed a ballet
With the dark choreo in the middle
We seemed to oscillate in the cradle
Thank you sun for your absence
We could be timid in your presence
Made its mark the intense fantasy
How can I portray this taste of ecstasy?
When I told the tale and coughed a bit
Mom said,” You are careless, accept it.”
How would you know the pleasure in it
I sprinkled some water and said “Enjoy it!”
Amboli is a hill station near Belgaum, Karnataka
This Poem is a Nostalgic recollection of the euphoria experienced during a visit to the place when we were in Final Year B.E
