Once In A While

Once In A While short poem

Uploaded by Dr.Indu Nautiyal

It’s good to leave your comfort zone
Once or more in a while
And travel to unknown lands
To have a feel of life out there.

It’s awesome visiting new places
Meeting people of varied cultures
Hear queer, unfamiliar languages
And mingling with total strangers.

Yet pleasant to find everywhere
Landscape with its usual features
The earth as the same beautiful being
Greeting you from every corner.

The sky is the same shade of blue
The sun as bright and dazzling
The moon as placid and calm
The air as cool and livening

The ever sprightly waves of sea
Come calling everyone on the shore
With promise of untold adventure
And pleasure never felt before.

The shouts of joy and excitement
Of those venturing on tides
Sound similar in every language
For emotions hardly need any words.

Heading homewards at the end of trip
Though tired , I felt refreshed n enriched
As the mind was busy replaying
Memories of wonderful sights visited

It’s cool to be home after much wandering
Having witnessed nature’s all- pervading powers
Its amazing beauty and benevolence
That’s all- embracing and everlasting

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. .
