The Dark Side Of The Moon

The Dark Side Of The Moon

 

Descent-Stok-Kangri-Ladakh-Adventure-Sindbad

You move forward and it pulls you in,
Wading in knee deep snow,
Been favoured with an ocean of white,
Is it to cushion a fall or to test your will?
Every step is harder,
Every breath is more laboured,
Every fibre of your being is tested.
The dark side of the moon,
The beauty that exists, but not seen.
Climbing to the peak is half the battle won,
Going down is what completes the story.
Glorious might be the ascent,
What humbles is the descent.

The Cairn

The Cairn

The-Cairn-Tso-Moriri-Ladakh-Adventure-Sindbad

By the coast or on a pass of a mountain,
To be a marker for sea or a trail.

 

Standing the test of time,
Holding ground against howling winds

 

Where one stood there are many now,
For everyone who passes leaves a mark,
A mark of a memory or a mark of gratitude,

 

What power resides in these
Precariously placed pile of stones.

 

Imbibing the faith of the builder,
The immaterial rocks transform,
For Faith may not move mountains,
But sure can create small hills.

Winter In Ladakh

Winter In Ladakh

Like a freshly laundered sheet of white,
She’s covered in a layer of snow,
Snow that cleanses, Snow that lets her breathe,
Snow that covers the last traces of footfall,
Snow that keeps us within walls.

 

Frozen rivers and bare branched trees,
Are bidding the time to flow again and blossom in spring,
Closed off high passes, creating a fortress of seclusion,
People are under wraps and sheep within their skin,
Winters are to mend the heart, heal the wound, numb the pain,
Bid the time, recuperate and rejuvenate.
For when it’s summer again, the world is new, and so are you!

A Shepherd On The Hills

A Shepherd On The Hills

Shepherd-On-the-hills-of-Himachal-Falachan-Valley-GHNP

A Piercing gaze, A quizzical look
Curious about the purpose
An unwilling half broken smile
On a memories creased face,

 

A faded topi colour lost in the sun,
Tell tales of the time on the mountains,
Time of solitude, of reminiscence,
Time of a heart-song, of a folk-tale
Time of a new love, of a lost youth

 

The grass his bed, the bleating sheep his confidantes
the blue sky his canvas, the valley his play field.

 

Ever wondered what it is to be a shepherd?

A Night Under The Stars

A Night Under The Stars

Gangpoche-Campsite-Markha-Valley-Mountain-Song

Heard a whisper,
It eludes in the glare of the day,
It drowns in the noise of the crowd,
It disappears in a fleeting moment.
But,
Under a star-spangled sky,
By the silhouetted jagged mountain line
In the eerie silence of the night,
It is heard, a soft cheery voice
a voice rejoicing a long overdue joy
it is the voice of a happy innocent you!
