The Road Through The Woods

                                              The Road  Through  The Woods
The Earth and the Sky
Bridged by the majestic woods
Form the horizon

And in between through the blue and green
Goes on the alluring metalled road

Promising to carry you on
To the land of beautiful  dreams
The gardens    hitherto unseen
The people so far unknown.

See how it moves onward
Cheerful as if homebound
But not in a hurry to reach
And go to rest  for long

No fear of rough terrain
Or weather unkind and  bitter
Can make it stop or falter
And there are no stopovers.

I too wish to venture along
And seek what lies beyond
How many curves and turns
Are there to navigate.

Will it ever be forging ahead
With no terminal on the way?
For the horizon keeps extending
And sets ever new destinations.

And those can never be  touched
Either by the traveller or  the road
The end, just a sweet illusion
 keeps on eluding forever.

 So just enjoy the trip
 In the  domain of mother nature
 With the Earth, and woods and sky                                                                
 As the most wonderful co- travellers .
