And wandering on streets and lanes
Unlocking my heart’s window panes,
With my iris curbing up as I pass by
Capturing the beauties on the way that lie.
On the roads flooded with crowd
Or on paths where silence screamed loud,
Where the starry sky widely sheltered
Or the hidden moon behind clouds cluttered.
Stopping by woods on that chilly evening
I soaked the melody of bird’s chirping,
Seizing my soul within its beautiful tinge
The scented dusk intoxicated my twinge.
Amazed at such beauty,my mortal peeped out
Compelling my ink to bleed and shout,
But the crumbled paper lay blank in blues
Pondering over the bewilderment of my lost muse.
Silencing the squalls , I revisited myself
Jaunted at every corner of my sporadic heart’s shelf,
There laid the cosmos within that celestial stardust
With an ethreal poetry engraved on its very crust.
