The Hill Song




I haven't yet discovered a joy
More jubilant than dancing carefree
To the tantalizing song of Nature.

I haven't known freedom in its full glory
Until I lost myself slowly and steadily
In the wind and the rain.

I never saw beauty and modesty coexisting
Until the flowers and the green carpet
Invited me for an informal chit chat.

The hill song is an enchanting lullaby now
I yearn to hear it again and again
To sleep well and find the music in me.

I keep going back to the hills
Bask in the delicious sun and the greenery
Read the love letter of the mountain breeze.

Listening to the inner and the outer tune
I slumber peacefully on the verdant earth
My soul talks to the flowers.

  12. 'Listening to the inner and the outer tune'.. These are the exact words of wisdom in our life.. And the eternal conflict with us lays in keeping a distance between these two the culprit in this notorious activity forever remaining the pleasure element which hooks us to this difference thru' out our life thus chaining us for a life time.. Excellent words of poetry Purba.. Truly a freshening Message in the early morning hrs!

  22. I keep going back to the hills
    Bask in the delicious sun and the greenery

    One often has a tendency to fall back on some safety measures when faced with some irritations. It is healthy that way! Great lines Purba!
