The cab weaved through the bustling city roads,

I looked out the window; people, cars, billboards.

Soon the noise will fade, crowds will disappear,

We would touch the highway, home will be near.

I soaked in the chaos and smiled,

Beautiful views awaited me on either sides.

Eucalyptus, coconut, age old trees, growing wide and tall,

Few old rickety buses, slowly tugging along.

Roads lined with colourful houses, kids by the roadside,

Cattle crossing and village markets, a feast for my eyes.

At the city outskirts, I chuckled and said,

“City is over, heaven lies ahead!”.

Driver, a local, replied…

Chhavi and Joy

Just another couple passing through life, writing about what they have learnt and experienced along the way.
