Silent Strides.

Nepal, 2018. Clicked by Ratnadeep Roy

Ensconced in the chair, walking outside

The same trees, paths, people are there

Within the walls of this strange prison

The mind clutches its nerves in despair.

As words, stories, songs gather

In a corner of the head, silently

Little does the back feel

The wings of wisdom growing, slowly.

A trekker is stranded, for days

A snow blizzard howls outside

As tent flaps flutter, food runs thin

Shuddering, waiting for it to subside.

The time is robbed by the storm

Spent surviving an ordeal so grim

Little does the trekker know

Of the warrior settling within.


Support the alien trekker!

Choose an amount


Or enter a custom amount


Mountains of love for you!
