Lost

Clicked at Victoria Memorial, Kolkata

I feel alive,
In the company of living breathing trees.
We run like rats in this race,
Only to think we deserve a break.
‘Much needed’
Trade off 300 gloomy days for five in the lap of mountains,
On the surface of seas,
The beaches keep calling,
We fall at ease
Amidst groves and bees.
All this while,
Our forests keep shrinking,
Where do we now seek peace?
I stand in front of an intimidating old woman like this one,
Her roots deep inside the stand she takes,
And holds her ground.
I stand in awe,
Listening to her sound.
Child, you’re here at last,
They’re looking at the marble dome and pebbled paths,
You’re lost under my shade,
Wondering if you wanted to be found.Aparajita
