A Mountainous Life - Poem by Rajesh Thankappan

The the earth may be round
Or flat the trodden ground
Yet a life we live
Stumbling around
Edges and ridges
Of ravines and cliffs
A nice balancing act!

We come across
Ups and downs
Highs and lows
Ascents and descents
Pebbles and rocks
Valleys and waterfalls
Peaks and summits
Inhospitable zeniths
Brooks and springs
That leaps and sprints
Cirques and crags
That daunt and brags
With vegetation and habitations
Existing and coexisting
While mountain ranges imposing
Greets us all around!
