Wind and the Valley


oh you, to whom life bows in deference,
you, who is part of our every moment and existence,

mighty, fulfilling, absolute and faultless,
your colours and contours are timeless,

in you, i find comfort everlasting,
forgetful of time, age and all that is unwilling,

to you i was born, to you i shall return,
these moments apart are but a short sojourn.

  1. The last two lines are a world apart! The photo is very good, but the name/date could have been slightly lower. It's sort of obstructing the beautiful view.

  2. Fascinating... you captured the exact feeling truly in words. I think it’s an honor to Matheran get praised by the prince, of the queen of hill stations :)
