A Beautiful Journey

A Beautiful Journey


I landed at the mars

In search of my beloved

I was spellbound to see

scattered rubies around.


I dived into the red sea as a mermaid

and come up onto the shore disappointed.

Alien was thy ambience and beloved was missing.

Suddenly my heart stopped beating.

I felt the strangeness was shrugging me off.

The desperation to escape yearn me to fly  


I float like a feather through the passing clouds.

I saw the greenish earth below

Spread as an embellished emerald carpet.

The emitting petrichor embraced me.

At north stand tall, Himalaya the host

Waiting with a pearl garland of Ganga for me

For, I was an angel of earth who was lost.


The dream union of both succumbed

to the ballads of Shakespeare.

But the mystic verses of Tagore

inhaled the secret as breath.

I belonged to Venus not to Earth!


Gloomy I continue the sojourn.

As a hobo I was roaming whole universe

in search of my beloved for a union.

Since ages I was left to live

with only one season, Untired Wait.

My desperation shed as tears

and frosted on the layers of eternity

to get melt in the warmth of my beloved.

As I knew the universe would conspire

to make this union of Mars & Venus some day.

So I wait for the golden moment to happen.


 Suddenly alarm rang and my eyes opened.

The reality unfolded and I was on bed.

The ride was not real but was a gift,

from my dream to the dream world.

I sighed forlornly and a reminder tickled me.

Dreams are always dreams!

I smiled and said..


Breeze while caressing cheeks whispered to me

It’s the most beautiful smile ever seen 

And I smiled….
