My soul craves for travel

a long pilgrimage for peace

far far beyond the borders;

into the lap of hills,

into the womb of forests,

he plunges himself

into the train of winds,

hops over caravans of clouds.

to quench his thirst

for silence glimmering

over the yonder horizon.

and to escape

from the grotesque colonies

of naked trees

that haunt his dreams


he dreams

for a journey

into a dream

where the whole world

of living beings fly on wings

scattering sweet syllables in the air;

where even a leaf before it falls

to the ground

plays around sailing

in a boat of song.

where the sun

comes into the drawing room of the sky,

as hills wake up,

woods wake up,

to wander about

like a dreamy nomad.

where rows and rows

of tall trees

take out long processions of silences;

where the marriage of earth and sky

is solemnised in the cathedral of blue hills;

where a nameless bird

merely sitting in the branch

turns the surroundings into a tune,

where red-gum and sandlewood trees

bath in puddles of evening,

and arrive with drops of red flowers

hanging from tips of leaves,

where the moon like a child crawls

over the roof of the house and

tempts you to clasp him with your hands-

To the valleys of that dream

my soul long to go

beyond the reach

of those haunting naked trees;

this is the pilgrimage to peace-

-Seshendra Sharma
