She saw what I did not…

December 8, 2009

It was spring time I remember,
When we friends went for a trek.
To cross rivers and mighty hills,
And to loosen our neck.

And then I went the wrong way,
And got lost on a mountain.
Left all alone in a dense jungle,
And got drenched in the rain.

Two days and three nights,
I ate fruits and slept under trees.
At night getting scared of the dark,
In mornings enjoying the breeze.

Third day late in the evening,
Sitting idle without any hope.
I saw some huts in moonlight,
Deep there down the slope.

‘A village, civilization’, I thought,
And whoosh I went running.
It took whole night, my feet bled,
I reached there early morning.

By the time I reached the village,
Almost everyone was awake.
Some out for work in the fields,
Some just fishing in the lake.

I went to a hut nearby,
And knocked on the door.
An old lady came out,
And listened to my story and more.

She asked me to come inside,
And offered a warm rice pot.
I lay down on the bed,
After eating the whole lot.

That day I slept like a log,
They say for whole day and night.
And even after that,
Getting up was a fight.

Grandma as I called her,
Was so kind and nice.
She lived with her granddaughter,
Who was blind in both eyes.

Next three or four days,
I stayed at grandma’s place.
Went around made friends,
Met everyone in the village.

Then one evening I was thinking,
Of going back to my town.
I was walking along the stream,
When I heard this splendid sound.

That night was the night,
That changed my life forever.
While walking along the clear stream,
I heard the loveliest song ever.

On the other side of the stream,
On the rock sat this lovely girl.
Singing like a nightingale,
Wearing a bluish white pearl.

I was pulled to her, I,
Crossed stream, got wet in water.
Went near her to see that,
She was the blind granddaughter.

The stream was gushing,
Wind was making musical sound.
She was singing like an angel,
Had no clue that I was around.

I kept sitting there, shivering,
Seeing her beautiful face shine.
Listening to every single word,
My heart was no longer mine.

Sitting there, as I wondered,
What the world for her would be.
Moving wind whispered in my ear,
More beautiful than it’s for me.

    either it’s real or mystery, reading this poetry was a luxury… read it twice and then again and again……
