Nature's Friend - Poem by Tirupathi Chandrupatla

My good friend
A noble soul from
The land of the rising sun
Loved life
Loved outdoors
Loved nature's beauty
In all its splendor
He always felt he was
Part of nature.

When I was in college
Both of us with families
He taught me
How to drive
In his large Chrysler car
On an open highway
Just built
Before it opened
When you have family
You should be able to drive
He said
And I learned.

Back in his country
Years passed by
One day, I'm told
He went hiking
To Mount Fuji
All by himself
No one knew
It would be
A one way journey
Never did he return
There was no trace
Friends and family
Everybody waits
I miss my friend
I keep driving
In all nature's sweet spots
Looking for him
Hoping nature will
Send him back some day.

    It is true story. I came to know of the disappearance from another friend while attending a conference where I expected to meet him. (Report) Reply
