Haunting Hallucination

Haunting Hallucination short poem

Photo by bertknot


For two days I stayed in a hill resort
Opposite was a hill top, easy to conquer with little effort

That was covered by many a variety of tree
Without greenery, leaving few gaps, as free

Those gaps looked like white
Being big rocks at considerable height

This was the regular scene
With which I became indigene

Later left for home in a train
Being window seat, my joy stayed to remain

The train begun journey with a slow start
Seen a small hilltop nearby, as it depart

Similarly green in full
Leaving similar white spot cell

Train made little more move
Leaving me with a new scene to carve

This green hill became fully visible
As it really was not a hill, I was surprised to fable

Though it looked so, from the previous place
In fact it was a tall and large tree, with green face

The white gaps were not rocks as I earlier thought
But were gaps between branches of that tree, outright

I laughed at myself, with pity
As I realized the reality

Had the train not moved, I would have held it as hilltop
As I detected from my train’s desktop

It hails the haunting hallucination!
That came silently into action!!

What Is Haunting Me?

The night time is calling…. winding through the trees Darkness breath to my ear….. what is haunting me? The wise owl hoots a way…. round a crooked bend Something crawls down my spine… as old as wicked sin The night
