Obsession

img_20161024_111722

 

Wanderlust-bug

has bitten me

pouring into the veins

mountain songs

of rivers, trees, skies.

Call of dusty roads

now keeps me alive.

The lofty magic mountain

has cast His spell on my soul,

I’ve lost my appetite for rest.

Rudraprayag, Gangotri, Auli, Badrinath

are my new mantras

to be repeated day and night

though one might say

but they are only names

of places and nothing more!

But to me

they’ve become my core.

I am possessed

by the mighty Himalayas.

  1. Whistles!!❤️❤️This is absolutely gorgeous writing, Sumana 😀 such a wonderful sense of peace and passionate calm runs through ” I’ve lost my appetite for rest. Rudraprayag, Gangotri, Auli, Badrinath are my new mantras to be repeated day and night though one might say but they are only names of places and nothing more!” Sigh.. beautifully executed. Thank you so much for participating at Prompt Nights and for your constant love and support ❤️❤️

    Lots of love,
    Sanaa

  2. Ah, the wanderlust is a wonderful thing. There are so many beautiful places in this world to see. The Himalayas indeed must be among the most beautiful. Being possessed in this way is not a bad thing!

  3. I once spent several weeks in Nepal and was awed by the beauty and mystery of the Himalayas. You have used those musical names beautifully in your poem.

    As for wanderlust, that visit to Nepal was part of a three-month world trip, by the end of which my husband was getting homesick but I felt I could happily have gone on travelling forever – if only the money wouldn’t run out! (18 years later, I like the comforts of home, and have chosen to live in a scenically beautiful part of the world, of which I never tire – and am also glad of my Himalayan memories, amongst others.)

  4. I enjoyed your poem so much, I, too, suffer from the desire to see beautiful places in the world. Your photo shows that your obsession is understandable, such beauty to discover.

Thank You :)
