River Song

Treading meandering paths,
Feet wander through the misty clouds
And the cold engulfs.
Gusts of frosty wind
Blow against puffed-up cheeks
That blush in the warmth of exercise.

Slowly, coyly, the translucent curtains of white
And we are at the waterfront.
Rangit curls, twists and embraces
The rocky ground
And I am left to ponder –
Are not earth and water one entity,
As you and I;
As air and fire?

The icy water only kindles the sturdy land.
Feet hesitantly stumble upon
The steel-grey chilliness of rock-splattered waters.

Sitting upon a rock,
I am the sky,
I am the clouds,
I am the water,
I am the rocks
And inside me
Is the surety
Of the river’s path
And I fall silent.

Rangit is a river in Sikkim
