Vows Renewed on a Sunday Afternoon...
It was a quiet Sunday afternoon
“Summer is over,” says the early Autumn breeze
It's cool but with traces of warmth
The afternoon sun basking in its glories
Its golden glow was generous to spread
The blanket of love and warmth around us
We hopped into our car and wandered around
From the busy city to the lonely town
We just drove through traffic, not so thick
We meandered along the lazy curves of the street
Traffic was getting thinner and thinner
Painting grim signs of arriving fall all over
We drove till the land merged with the sea
Witnessing trees turning yellow, orange, and red with glee
Till the wheels won’t carry us further
Till as solitary as we can be.
The smooth glossy road turned to dirt
The path became narrow and narrower
We were like lovebirds renewing our vows
Under the boughs of trees intertwined together
Walking hand in hand on the twisted trails
Under the green tree tunnel of the woods unpaved
One led to the ceiling of the sky touching a cliff
We chose the other, to my dream mermaid.
Along the lawless path of the bottom rocks
We made to the rocky bay meeting ocean
Hopping, jumping, and skipping rocks
Oh, we had forgotten this childlike fun
Soaking in sun we sat there calm and cool
Listening to waves rejuvenated our mind and soul
On rocks, waves brushing and splashing
We the love birds sat long hours past reminiscing.
As my curly locks dangled on his face to play
While he rested on my lap I got carried away
Far from the hustle of the city's ignoble strife
The playful cool breeze brought our youth alive
Twilight descended silently on the horizon,
As we got lost thinking of carpe diem !!
