Almost a Journey

   It is a day before the mini-vacations for the christmas season set in, a Friday... Excited to travel, into the heartland of amazing coastlines and serenity... A trip to Dapoli.
   The 'ShivShahi' buses which take you there have a notorious reputation that precedes them. I take the plunge and navigate the Pune office hours to reach the bus depot. It is just the beginning of a long wait that lies ahead. As I sit by a column there are hints of a drama cooking up around. Drama - Would never have guessed that would define my onward journey to Dapoli. 
The only picture I managed in the pitch black darkness

About time


About time for the things we never had time for...
For the ones we thought we had a plan,
Only to find it was leisure now that mocked from afar...

Or was is the simplicity we missed now...
From the high ship of adulthood we saw,
The oceans that once were teeming with excitement

Waves we longed to surf upon now really did wave... 
At us from the shores we now have anchored the ship by,
Waiting for the tide and time to be right

Finally...



And you thought of it to be a mirage..
As always hung upon the image of the lonely barge...

Out into the seas so fair, sighing at the sky so blue...
Wishing upon a star, for the horizons to come meet you...

But haven't you always been here beside me...
Pining along for the dream, the visions I too seek...

All over a breeze that sets us free now...
To say it out loud, to finally stop wondering how...
