The Malady of Wanderlust

Fear jazzed with angst on the tip

of my tongue. churning stomach,

knots wrung. Stranded entangled,

in a maze of roads, my heart rose,

ticked as a clock with battery low.


The curvaceous roads to NathuLa

pass, surrounded by them mystical

mountains echoed and forewarned

at each turn; curvy Tsmago lake,

can be lethal, a meandering snake.


Axis of life is not linear either.

On a tufted path, why flirt with

an ebb and flow, desist charm

of a gravitational pull, of a mind

wandering, your consistent ally?


Prey, is it numbness or ennui?

or adrenaline rush, the vice?

Alighting from the peak of the

NathuLa Pass. I felt home.

As much a nomad is permitted.




The incurable malady!

    1. Thank you,Suchita. This journey was also about conquering the fear of uncertain circumstances. The narrow roads, misty mountains and broken bridges, it was a tiny sliver of hope between life & death that held our nerves together.I am glad you found resonance in my verse.


  1. This is the precise weblog for anybody who needs to seek out out about this topic. You notice so much its almost arduous to argue with you. You positively put a brand new spin on a subject that’s been written about for years. Nice stuff, simply nice!
