It Ain'T A Poem - 1.

Clusters of cloud
surrounded me like a mist of haze.
The lush green hills
were breathtakingly beautiful to gaze.

My car was piercing through
the hills on a wet slippery road.
When the sheep were
climbing the hills in hoards.

Suddenly i got engulfed by the clouds,
inside them i wished
they must never let me out.
Wishes don't always come true,
beyond me the clouds went
passing me through.

Rarely did a vehicle pass by
fascinated and intrigued was i
with the lovely woods i stood by.

Little children were returning from school
some had umbrella's while some were game
cause for them, everyday it was just the same.

I was watching it all
slowly gathering my memories
scattered along the road.
Last time here a bright sun had shone.
Even then the children
were returning from school,
and then their umbrella's had kept them cool.

I crossed a bridge over a spring.
The light drizzle created ripples
on the water of the spring.
A streak of sunlight finally
managed to make its way
filtering through the imposing trees
casting shadows on the road.

The drizzle was not ready to let up,
how mystic and magical was the set up?
Oh god! I thought, cursing myself
why the hell am i leaving this paradise behind
just to meet an appointment in time.

    A ball-to-ball poetic noetic diction on a sojourn…and

    ‘…why the hell am i leaving this paradise behind/just to meet an appointment in time.

    I’d say it was your appointment with Nature to present us so good poem…

    No you’re wise [not ‘why the hell’]

    This poem reminded of the lines'What is this life if full of care?
    We have no time to stand and stare....' We are so much trapped in our mundane busy existance....that we hardly have time for the finer aspects of life.
    Beautiful imagery of an Indian monsoon.....Thanks for sharing.

    I agree with you, so many beautiful, simple things in life pass us by while we are rushing headlong into the future. Very nicely done.

    Sun kissed hills and angelic mist;
    Should be on a traveller's list
    As they are the companion of thee

    Without them no journey

    Gud write...

    It began as a poem then turned into descriptive prose. Does it matter?
    I enjoyed my journey with you.

    Really a nice one from you. How nicely you have amalgamated - - words of wisdom with the alluring/charming nature. This was a real surprise for me. The rythm of this poem is really nice. Its like flowing like a dancing river. You can say i just glided through your poem. An effortless six hit by tendulkar. smooooth. I might have many times enjoyed being close to such beautiful nature, but didnt know it could be just as beautifully put into words. Man, I cant lie so you deserve 2 for this work. You know i am kidding.10+ buddy. I am a nature lover so if you have something in your fertile mind, just let it come out for us. thanks

    wowwwwwwwwww
    nature unfolds itself always
    its for us to see and enjoy it-
    lovely
    you've brought out the imagery
    very well-
    specially of children returning from
    school--
    i became nostalgic for a moment
    thought of my early school days
    when i never wanted to go to school
    and grandpa had to bribe me
    lol! ! ! ! ! !
    ill give you an A+++++ and 10+++
