River Within Me



River Within Me

River within me is flowing with passion
It's intensely longing to meet Deep Ocean

Some say casually, it's flooded, basin isn't seen
Some wonder how could be my original basin

On the sensitive banks, nurtured delicate nursery
Thoughtful cattle graze on the side-land greenery

Stray dogs bark, reared horses neigh, lovable cows mow
Water birds are delighted to enjoy river's current flow

In the marshy area, green clusters of moss
Some fish jump high, brilliant their toss

Course of the river is upright and loyal
Be it upstream or downstream, feel is- royal

Water is crystal clear, mirror like perfection
Noble sun and moon see their own reflection
Emotional delightful flow goes ahead with alacrity

Puts life, in the surrounding nerves, with splendid vivacity.
