Munnar Lake

Munnar Lake


A love song, long-buried in my heart,

manifesting today, celebrated today,

The magic of missing and meeting,

the beloved tomorrow, day after or now,

little realizing you are the song itself.


Memories, whistles, glances, smiles,

Like a sweet dream, they play along,

Again and again with the same saccharine ness.

The setting sun and the rippling lake,

could never parallel your beautiful aura.


Waiting for you, waiting for you,

little realizing that you are the wait itself.

Will tomorrow come, When will it?

Singing with an empty heart, an empty note,

The love song once sung deeply buried.


It is now or never, to find you there,

Where you always are and waiting for me,

To revel in the best days of my life,

Indeed the best is here and now,

To find you where you always are…


Oh, I am waiting, yes, I am…

Not knowing you are here with me,

That beautiful future I envision,

Cradled in a bright cocoon in your spirit.

But oh, here you are, when did you come?

    Nice to see a post after so long! Very beautiful theme, It reminded me of R Tagore’s Geetanjali, where the serach is on for God but after a while realises where God is. Yet he never goes and meets him there as he is in love with the process of the search itself. Also, of Keat’s Ode on a Grecian Urn wheer he crystallizes the moment just before you actually reach the point you want to reach and talks about the heightened emotion at that point if time. Your poem is also along similar lines and just as beautiful 🙂 ( go on gloat over it !!). This is a popular theme in poetry i guess but I wonder why nobody talks about life or the journey after having reached the ‘point’. Maybe we are too afraid of the consequences themselves or are we scared if we would be able to sustain the emotion after after having reached there? Probably it is this fear which keeps us in an endless search? Good work!

      Now, you motivated me to read Geetanjali again. I do not have a personal copy here. So, I am off sometime this weekend to get one.
      I personally think after reaching the ‘point’ one may not be inclined to pen it all down or whatever. Maybe people who have reached the ‘point’ may care less of such things?! Or whatever?!! But ah, lucky them 🙂

      Nice catching up with you here 🙂 Be in touch!
