Towards the ultimate goal


River gurgles

Surges ahead

With sparkling silver

Towards the sea:

The ultimate destination.



Mountain becomes jealous

Stands in front

aloft

Like a giant obstacle.



The river smiles

Takes a detour,

Agile.

Surrounds the mountain

Forming a lake around.

And goes ahead.



The mountain feel s ashamed

As the river salutes

With smile.

And says,

‘But for you

A blue lake forms

For the mankind

to feel soothed.’



Sorry river, says the mountain

‘I’m ashamed,

Here I cast my ego

Express my gratitude

To your magnanimity.’



‘No, no, you’re great,

As obstacle you stand

With an orb of hope

Where I finds a way ahead.

My aim is sea.

The lake is for you

Without you

It’s nothing, ’

Says the river

And serpentines ahead.

With vigour

Dazzle

And focus.
