Each step is mindful… one at a time
Each step is surpriseful… majestic view or steep climb
Lyrical streams add music… flowing peacefully beside
sometimes hindering paths… defying strides to be traversed
Often there is bridge… or merely a branch…
Or slippery rocks under strong currents to wade or trudge
there may be a helping hand… along sharp turns,
a sturdy boulder for support or just the two legs that burn
trekking is not just a walk or even a climb,
not a journey to reach the top just to be sublime,
trekking is a reminder… of our perseverance
our resolve to trek on forward… barring all impediment,
cue to breathe
to absorb... all the scenes
to experience it fully... at every pace,

Parched earth drinks in first showers with a sigh
fusing with powerful aroma of mangoes
sharp drops drum car-tops
to accompany the birds’ chorus,
pink, bougainvillea flowers smile as luscious green leaves applaud
to the musical performance,
mango variety morph from Safeda to Chausa to Langda
each equally delightful in flavor and fragrance,
sweet, luscious, color of scorching sun
fresh showers wash the sweet mud
off the sizzling earth,
fragrance of mangoes and monsoon
mingle into sweet memories
to last a lifetime of music to the soul.

Patthron ko paseena kyon aata hai?
Kya humse dar ke sharmaatta hai?
Naher ki laherein itni jaldi mein kyon hain?
Hari bhari nadi se milan ke liye?
Pahaddon ki choti ka mazaak uddata hai?
Insaanon ko nazaaron se ashchariya kyon hota hai?
Apni hukoomat ko kya khoob samajh ta hai?
Pattharon ko paseena kyon aata hai?
Woh paseena nahin insaanon ke liye aansoon hain!
