Eden - Poem by Sanjay Mehta

In the hills
Where the slope ends
Huge rocks
As strings of sitar
To the water that flows
Haunted by village lasses
Singing to its tune
Washing clothes
And with awe the water flows
Tempts them to such an extent
Takes a plunge
To caress them
Where the slope ends.

    It is nice to visualize village lasses washing clothes and having a plunge in the waterfall leaping down from the slopes! An enjoyable read! (Report) Reply

    Small but beautiful and essentially poetic! The beginning here must be to make great strides ahead |
