• Born to fly…these words seem to be entrenched in your heart. I like the positive note at the end of the poem.

  • Thanks! I think Jonathan Livingston Seagull might have something to do with it. Though I don’t own the book, it had an impact when I’d read it long time back…:-)

  • //One hopes
    To elope
    But one is bound
    To one’s ground//
    ‘Rahiye ab aisi jagah chal kar jahan koi na ho,
    Humsafar koi na ho aur humjaban koi na ho’.

  • Wah, wah! Kyaa baat hai!

  • I loved the last stanza. Oh and welcome to the flying club Mahendra 🙂

  • Thanks, Priyank! 🙂

  • Cool poem..hope amidst confusion 🙂

  • I think this is a very good poem, Mahendra. The rhythm, the sounds, the meaning are woven together masterfully.

    BTW, I miss you.

  • Just a note to let you know I am still here, and reading. Look forward to reading your next one Mahendra.

  • Desh: Thanks!

    Paul: Thanks for the kind words. Gimme some time to get round to regular blogging and commenting again. I too have missed you and am looking forward to resuming spending time on your blog…

    Aikaterine: It gives me great happiness to know that you’re back. Hope you’re doing fine. More later.

  • A sweet, rather melancholic poem. Did you mean the soul’s passage as you mentioned ‘born to fly’?

  • Nice blog you have here 🙂 First time here.
    I had my own interpretations of the poem (alright, who doesnt)
    Blog rolling you.
