Took a trip, long due to a resort on forest's edge

All I wanted was away from home for some peace and quiet

I went with zero enthusiasm for the sake of it

Upon reaching my cottage I was filled with zing

So much of open space and fresh air to breathe

No wonder the tribals are happy even when beneath


Totally detached from outside world I wanted to laze around

With a mindset to capture everything the eyes could see

A trait built in our DNA from the time of adam and eve


I set out on a jungle safari to scout the forest

Wishing to see what little is left of flora and fauna

Fear, respect and sadness flowed through me

Sitting in the noisy bus a veil of bravery covered me

The two legged predator scared the four legged one

Uneventful trip except for a few animals of prey

Ever watchful birds informed them all of our presence


Day ended with couple of pegs hoping to soothe the tired legs

For the next morning was our trekking to sight the elusive leopards

Armed with binoculars and a staff we set out eagerly

Third time lucky saw the wild cat perched on top of a hill

Relaxed and majestic with a stare to dare

Sent chill down my spine and out popped the goose bumps

Satisfied and happy returned back in one piece

What an eventful journey this has been
