So what if we can’t travel now?

By – Gayatri Agarwal

 So what if we can’t travel now?
 Close your eyes and reminisce;
Close your eyes and reminisce;
The winds blow, and the rivers flow.
 After all, 
 Nature is everywhere we go.
 The plant outside our home;
 Or sipping a coffee at the gloam;
 Every corner is a beautiful home.

 To all the rides from the notch;
 To all the sunsets we are yet to watch;
 Let’s cherish the memories with a scotch.
 We will be in the clouds soon;
 For now;
 Let’s recall the oceans tune;
 To all the nights and the noon;
 The moon still looks beautiful from our bedroom.

 To the beach lovers;
 We know happiness comes in waves;
 And the seashore is what we crave.
 The sand, the water, the sun;
 We miss all the fun.
 But my dear friend,
 So what we can’t travel now?
 We will still tick off the bucket list;
 Because to travel is to persist.

Writing is not a skill acquired through practice. Not for us, at least. Writing is a phenomenon that occurred to us when we wanted to shout our thoughts out. It happened when our brains formed a labyrinth of thoughts with no way out. The only way was to break the walls, the walls we constructed in our minds—the walls which stopped us from letting ourselves out. We broke the barriers using the mightiest weapon, the pen. Writing was our way out of that maze. Words and sentences flowed like a stream of some river, which consisted of A2Z instead of H2O. Soon the river filled the brain and the labyrinth was not visible anymore.
