Flights of fantasy ~ part 2

I flew over mountains
I went over valleys
I traversed the vast expanse
I swept over prairies.










My flight was uninterrupted,
It was a thing of joy.
For here in these pages,
I had whined I couldn't fly


As all good things come to an end,
My aerial sojourn was not to beat the trend.
I started losing height,
Down I went,
Went past all those
Left behind on my ascent.


Serves him all right,
They might have thought,
But did I care?
For losing height had made me
giddy with fear.


But does it feel stinky when facing death?
For I was smelling something like rotten egg.


I opened my eyes..
was on my bed
Covered with laundry
that I failed to tend.








Hope you got the message
that I convey here,
Don't accumulate soiled laundry
for it may haunt you
when least feared!!

Dear Dhiru bhai, good transition.. the point you wanted to make stayed as a surprise till the very end. You have used words like 'sojourn', clearly I had to look them up to understand what it meant. I think you have found a great venue that would cherish your soul as you move on in life, being able to express feelings and ideas through poems is a very noble.
