On my way
by RajaRajeshwari Arenga
It was a searing hot day as I made my way home
Did the road seem wider than usual?
Cannot be! my parched mind just loves to roam
That is when it caught my gaze
A slight movement to my left, or was it right?
Enough to make me turn all around
And it made me notice with a start
A rather small and narrow street
Was it a diversion, a shortcut maybe…
Lined with tall trees looking so very green
It looked so apart, so inviting..
Away from all the dust and sand and the heat
Why not, I thought take a closer look, just a look
I took a step then another, so eager was I to explore
yes ofcourse just a bit more than a look
I have all the time in the world, have I not?
