# A Captivated Audience...

Poem by Mamta Agarwal

The sombre glacier breaks
Eons of its icy silence
As a water fall,

From the deep crevice
In the mountain, it descends
Like a torrent…

The language it speaks
Can not be matched
By any human speech…

The valley resounds,
I gape, astounded over
The magic it weaves…

From east the Sun’s rays
Have come down to play,
The game of hide and seek…

As they filters down
Through the dense Deodars,
Water gushes like a child…

All creatures exult
The forest just
Seems lost in contemplation….

Sitting still, on a wooden bench
under a canopy
on a vantage point,
I wondered,
why are tears
flowing down my cheeks....?

    A very beautiful poem ingrained with elegance of natural scenic that really is worth reading in the form of good imageries and metaphors..........There comes a state on our mind in life when we observe things and conclude different things for better enhancements and steps............especially the first stanza really depicts your deep complete imagination about the natural scenics that seems to lie in your soul too...........absolute 10

    This journey from Glacier to Vantage Point
    Brought tears of fulfillment into my eyes
    A perfect picture in a wall hangging
    Dear poet, we are with you to shed tears.

    A deep look into Nature's eyes
    Sure to bring tears from within.
    A serene experience shared with all of us.
    Enjoyed to the brim.

    Thank you.(Report)Reply

    It is so beautiful poem that I cannot express in words. Nature's divine inspiration and attraction is so strong that it has brought out from your heart all nostalgia, memories of someone and days bygone, sadness, thoughts and fears and transform all this into tears and poetry. You made me sad as well, Mamta......10/10.
