Travel musings – Karkotak peak

Hard work pays.
And sometimes, that payment comes in the form of a spectacular view.

Travel musings – Dehradun

Laughing hysterically
On my lame puns
While teasing me
About my eccentricities
You made me smile

Quietly watching you
Playing with the parrots
Swirling your stole
Around the bougainvilleas
My heart smiled.

Travel musings – Maphlang Sacred Grove

Watching me scold our kids
With motherly rants
You continued smiling

In those torrential brawls
When I cried
You eventually smiled

And now as I watch you die
Barely able to hold yourself
You continue to smile
Leaving me in oblivion.
