The Road Through The Woods

The Road Through The Woods prose poem

Uploaded by Dr.Indu Nautiyal


The Earth and the sky
Bridged by majestic woods
Form the horizon

In between through the blue and green
Goes on the alluring metallic road
Invitingly .

Promising to carry you on
To the land of beautiful dreams ,
The gardens hitherto unseen ,
And the people so far unknown .

It calmly moves onward
Cheerful , as if home bound
But not in a hurry to reach anywhere
Or keen to be at rest .

No fear of rough terrain
Of weather unkind or bitter
Can make it stop or falter
As there are no stopovers .

I too wish to venture along
And seek what lies beyond
How many curves and turns
How testing ups and downs
Are there to navigate .

Will it ever be forging ahead
With no terminal in view
For the horizon keeps extending
And sets ever new destinations .

And those can never be reached
Either by the traveler or road
The end , just a sweet delusion
That keeps eluding for ever !

I have been a teacher for about four decades ,but even more than that , a student and learner all along --literature being my favourite subject with special love for poetry , a trait I seem to have inherited from my father,who was a very good poet ,it was he that instilled in me a deep love for poetry early in childhood . Starting as a science student ,I shifted to literature after graduation and and worked on Emily Dickinson's poetry for Doctoral degree. I don't claim to be a poet ,but do admit my inherent love for poetic utterances as and when I find them and sometimes feel inspired to give vent to my own emotions in words that seem to convey them .Honestly it happens quite effortlessly and also leaves me with an immense satisfaction .If it can be termed poetry ,all the more rewarding. .

Singing Woods short poem

Walking out of the body I was drowned, accepted and condoned by depth of sorrow. A wide circle of testosterone giving pardon to a sin becomes sexless. You were overwhelmed by the missed beats. Your prosaic crime of not fathering

A Walk In The Woods

A Walk In The Woods short poem

A walk in the woods. Thunder in the distance. Lighting dancing, edging dark clouds. Soft rain thru the pines. Boughs dripping in the pond. Birds sounding bird talk. Many languages to be heard. Frogs in the pond announcing their attendance.

Gnawed Through

Gnawed Through short poem

A fat island burns under a looming sun. Bleeding rays will enter your eyes to see the blundering world. The gods were melting down looking at the corpses of faltering orchids, spread out at the feet of a white blaze.
