Destination: The Heart of Mountain

I’ve arrived in the city of solitude
I’ve left the four walls of my clustered existence
And now I wander, in search for an inarticulating desire
To learn something new on this high altitude
I’m constantly challenging myself-
Moving towards the steep hill,
Crossing few yards of the Lychee orchards
There are tall trees of Pine and Deodar ahead of me
I’ve been on the road with people who’ve fluttering hearts,
Who are voracious storytellers
I’ve strolled on the streets,
Drank variety of tea in the cafes,
Been an admirer of the staple cuisine
Have spend hours on the narrow bends
That never seems to end
Perhaps, I’m just like you
Finding my way back
Through the highs and lows
From the mountains to the lush green meadows
Chasing the sun,
Embracing the perpetuation of beauty
As it slowly engulfs me with warmth
And nurtures my spirit with love
I take a detour, towards a path;
Bit rough around the edges of the moor
Here I feel the cold breeze touching my cheeks
While I’m lost in the little moments of my clustered mind
I acknowledge this through my eyes,
In this silence there is an echo of the void
But a muffled voice from behind disrupts my fall,
Bringing me back to where I belong
With my people, here I’m not alone, not anymore
And If I tend to lose myself again
I firmly believe I’ll find my way back
As I’ll keep track of my footsteps
And one day, my search will end
One day, my search will end
Till then, I’ll be curiously striving for more
In some other unknown destination
Searching for home
