Again You Came

Again the mist touched my visage,
again the autumn leaves listlessly brushed my soul,
again the pewter skies smiled through scattered hues
again all such Midas touch
brought your memories back out of the blue

Surging Force

She held my thoughts at a distance,
away from her throbbing heart,
for her innocuous self
seldom could resist the divine pull.

But she was naive,
for who can tame a surging ocean,
a seismic jolt,
a charismatic smile,
and fragrance in the wild

and the time was not far
when walls would dissolve
the cracks would fill
and love would get its fair chance

Six Mile Mountain Trail

What is the most extreme thing you did recently? Something beyond the routine, out of your comfort zone. After all the running and hullabaloos we face in our lives, there is no time or drive to execute on aberrant hobbies.

I always have a few things in my TO-DO list, things I have never done before but desire to accomplish. From time to time I relook and make it a point to execute a few.

Three years back I started mountain biking, a new hobby, which I have never experienced before. Although I biked on dirt roads, it was mostly a flat pathway. Two weeks back I biked in one go about 40 miles (64 Kilometres), but it was an esplanade. Though I always wanted to go on a terrain trail but dreaded the thought.

This Saturday, my friend Karan, who is an avid biker, invited me to join for a rugged trail ride. I didn’t think twice before saying yes. Well, my rear brakes were not working, not a good thing while going down slopes, and my bike was not lubricated enough, but the excitement drove me to go with the flow. We were three of us and started our ride at 8:00 in the morning. It was a thrilling ride, uphill, and downhill, steep turn, narrow open bridges, tree roots covered dirt paths, sudden drops, valley, and terrain, and surrounded by stunning views.

I fell twice. Once while trying to climb a ditch after a sudden drop, and the second time while maneuvering a turn I hit a tree head-on (helmet was a savior). I lost a paddle as well. The 6 miles trail took me almost an hour. I reached home with some bruises but I am ready to go there next week.

Berserk Mind

I believe, the most arduous task I have ever witness is to train a thinking mind, for against our desires it broods on vicious thoughts, ruminating on desires which are not in our direct control, and like a reticent dolt, more we attempt to impede, the mind pursues such postulations with renewed vigor and relentless grit. And conjuring such apprehensions at the end we are often left with a convoluted world and a hapless soul
