Four Walls In A Room

View from Tungnath.

Four walls in a room
a writer lives there 
permanently; her steps take 
her to places and spaces.

Her restless heart 
wanders like a banshee 
the mountain trail beckons
to the valleys and meadows. 

Dancing on the edge of a cliff
a nebulous love whispers
the writer weeps however 
tethered to her desk; chained yet free 

Her steps take her to
places and spaces; her mindscape 
four walls in a room
a writer lives there, permanently. 

Written for dVerse Poetics: Poetry of Place and Space.

When I thought of places and spaces…I thought about where my mind takes me. I have a great love for travel, it often pains me that I cannot often go to the places I want to go to…especially the Himalayas. I have been there as a child and the beauty of these mountains, the trekking and valleys often leaves me spellbound.

I have fond memories of Garhwal and Kumaon, especially in Chopta, Ranikhet and Kausani and of course, the unforgettable Chardham.

Someday, I’ll make that trip, again. ๐Ÿ˜„
