Straying into the Green

Sometimes, a short halt while travelling

on a highway,  gifts you with an unpremeditated,

unplanned break from the mundane daily routine 

that leaves your nerves

stressed and fatigued. 

You suddenly find yourself

straying into the green scenario stretched

all along, that lends a certain

cool touch…feeling

to your nerves, too stressed and fatigued.

For a while, with your eyes shut,

you find yourself transported to

the enchanting world,

of Mother Nature, full of flora and fauna; 

cool breeze and chirpy music.

The Mother benign takes you in

her soothing embrace and unruffles

your brow with a cool, rejuvenating touch

only a doting mother can give 

to her offspring.
