A New High

A soulful evening replete with tranquil green expanses of wilderness. There are no thoughts as the eyes feast on the setting sun. Dusk arrives, and with it more measures of silence. The soul is stirred, elated. A walk into the wilds. Canopies of green rising up into eternity. Sounds of dusk hallowing the moment. Distances don't matter as eager steps edge to cover them. The path is endless and gratifying.

Birds fly about seeking spots to roost, their calls trailing through like flashes in twilight. Soon, it is a moonless night and darkness envelopes. The colours of colourlessness are distinctive to the eye; and a feast to the senses that only wants more.

Serenity is a sweet prescription and consigns memories to flames. It feels like a different time and age. A spectacular union of the inner self and the outer world.

Home is where the heart is.

Footnotes:

An evening during my maiden trip to my parents' new home in Wayanad, Kerala.

  4. Rakesh, Wayanad is a place I always wanted to visit and your piece of description has made me more curious. I can imagine the beauty of the place, especially so, because you are a person who always stand close to nature.

    1. True that, DI, very much! I've also realized that chancing upon that spectacular union and sustaining it are two different things altogether. In the words of a dear friend, achievement perhaps isn't as difficult as sustenance!
