A Rain Splattered Window
Our outing was not pre-planned, nor did we map out
We grew run down with a toiling schedule
Modern amenities we have been blest with
All of a sudden, left our home, uncertain location
Some of our pals hit out a plan to spot a sylvan,
Arboreal locality, far from the maddening crowd
Opened the garage, moved out with the sleek Jazz
Untwined our love-trekking route to a place, unknown
Deep monsoon overhead, we set off for pleasure
The dark cloud on the North-western sky brew in
The dread of nature, we just showed our prudence
Foolhardy goes could precipitate bad omen!
Longing for the distant has been perennial
Down the times; still, hazards waft an aura,
Romantic to the eyes towards something
Mystique in nature –
The recreational change turned into a mishap of rain
Bucketing down; visibility blurs through
A rain-splattered window!
Inside the cab, a fuggy heat frosted the cab glass
Deep in the forest; deeper the silence, we scared
That gave us the wondrous joy of such an adventure
Huddled together to share the anxiety of ecstasy
Steering the vehicle meant inviting the danger
The entire place wore a cloudy bark of haze
The defrosting device got overheated; we thought
Feeling stranded was risky; the road was in the water
We were just carried away by nature’s fury!
Awe and consternation, we had to drop out
Wind hurtled down to the plane, gazed with
Startle, the edge of the cloudlets flitted fast
We started retreating toward home, unmet!
